Heard of Meadowfoam seed oil but don’t know how it benefits your skin and what it is doing in your skincare? Here’s an ingredient spotlight telling you why it is great to have it in your daily skincare routine!
Meadowfoam seed oil is extracted through the cold-pressing of the seeds of meadowfoam plant. It has amazing skin softening and moisturising properties.
The tocopherol or Vitamin e present in Meadowfoam seed oil is easily absorbed by the skin and nourishes it from within. It locks in moisture and it helps other ingredients penetrate deep into the skin as well. It moisturizes skin as well as protects it from being dehydrated.
The high levels of antioxidants in meadowfoam seed oil helps it fight free radical damage to keep your skin soft, smooth and keep away wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of ageing.
Unlike water, when you cleanse with meadowfoam oil, it does not evaporate when exposed to the elements. So after every use, it keeps your skin hydrated and removes blockages in the pores to make it easier for your skin to breathe and prevents acne.
Meadowfoam seed oil conditions and thicken eyelashes too. It hydrates your lashes and encourage them to grow, making your lashes look longer and thicker. It hydrates them rather than dry them out, which is important when taking off stubborn eye makeup!
Oily and sensitive skin buddy!
Meadowfoam is perfect for you if you have oily skin or sensitive skin. It is mild and really effective in balancing out the production of sebum. This is great if your skin tends to get greasy during the course of the day. It contains eicosenoic acid that does not block the skin’s pores and it balances the oil in the skin, making it less oily.
Having meadowfoam oil in your lip products or cleansers is great. It helps your lips look plumper and fuller by locking in moisture. It ensures that the water and oil content in your lips area are balanced, making them look smoother and fuller.
Whether you use meadowfoam seed oil separately or as an ingredient in your everyday skincare products, it delivers you a lot more than you can imagine. No wonder, we’ve included it in Erase & Renew cleansing balm, your favourite cleanser.
