Nutrient-dense, cold-pressed seed oils of cranberry, raspberry and pumpkin create a range of skin-loving vitamins of A & E, carotenoids and high linoleic fatty acids to help modulate inflammation and encourage rejuvenation.
Plantain, bee balm and self-heal work collectively to stimulate skin cell generation to firm the skin and lessen scars or dark marks. Also rich in UV and pollution protectant antioxidants to strengthen the skin’s response to environmental factors to skin barrier degradation.
Carefully processed for maximum potency Pumpkin seed powder is rich in a wide range of antioxidants, amino acids, omega-6, and omega-3 fatty acids and rich minerals like zinc for soothing and vitamin K for discoloration.
