RELIEF | Facial Oil for Combination/Acne Skin Types
GMO Free • Cruelty Free • Free of Parabens, Phthalates, and Sulfates • Organic Whenever Possible
We recommend using this oil after properly removing makeup, cleansing, and using a toner (we love just simple witch hazel or rose water). Using clean hands, apply approximately 4-7 drops and gently massage in soft circles into your face and neck. If you use a facial roller, we highly recommend cooling it in the refrigerator before use for a truly relaxing sensation as well as to help reduce any dark circles or puffiness. For best results, use this oil daily.
Relief works best when used in place of a moisturizer, although can be layered underneath a moisturizer in the evening for extra hydration.
MAKEUP TIP • Facial serums can be a great addition your make up routine, simply apply as directed underneath your primer and foundation or try mixing a few drops with your foundation powder for a truly nourishing liquid foundation.
As with any product, it may take a few weeks of continuous use for your skin to adjust to any new product, as such you may not see immediate results. Ultimately, be conscious of your own skin type. If you notice acne breakouts that get worse over time think about either cutting back on the amount of product you're using or try switching to an oil that is more geared towards acne prone skin types.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
IMPORTANT • Chlorella and Kelp are amazing and wonderful, but they can be high in iodine and should be avoided by anyone with an iodine allergy. Also we recommend being cautious if you are allergic to shellfish. Some people who are allergic to shellfish may have a sensitivity to Chlorella and Kelp, however there are also plenty of people that have no issues or reactions. If this is a concern for you message us to talk about your options if you would like to try this oil.

EVERY INGREDIENT FOR A REASON
HEMP SEED OIL • Despite the fact that Hemp Seed Oil and Cannabis/Marijuana Oil are both derived from varieties of the Cannabis plant, these two oils are produced in very different ways and thus have different properties and effects. Hemp Seed Oil does not exhibit the sedative or narcotic properties. Used topically, Hemp Seed Oil is reputed to refresh, revive, and strengthen the skin, even out the complexion, enhance its texture and appearance, maintain its suppleness and softness, and repair dryness as well as damage.
SUNFLOWER OIL • Sunflower Oil hydrates, softens, prevents moisture loss, defends against external damage, and facilitates the skin’s regeneration. It's also been reputed to slow the look of wrinkles, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, eliminate acne-causing bacteria, prevent blemishing, and even out the skin tone. It is easily absorbed into the skin without clogging pores.
JOJOBA OIL • Fun fact, Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax. It's primarily made up of wax esters and has a surprisingly similar chemical make up to the natural sebum that our skin naturally produces. Because of this Jojoba oil is very quickly absorbed into skin as it instantly recognizes it's components which helps balance out natural oil/sebum production. Used topically, Jojoba Oil acts as a non-comedogenic, fast-absorbing yet long-lasting emollient that gently moisturizes, soothes, nourishes, and softens skin without leaving a greasy residue. It cleanses skin to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and to promote the growth of new skin.
TAMANU OIL • Tamanu oil originates from a nut grown from the Ati tree in the South Pacific called the tamanu nut. The oil causes a unique process called cicatrization, which basically is a process of wound healing. Because of cicatrization, Tamanu Oil has the capacity to encourage the generation of new tissue, accelerate wound healing and stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells. Furthermore, Tamanu Oil comprises of three basic classes of lipids: glycolipids, phospholipids and neutral lipids. It also inhibits an uncommon fatty acid called calophyllic acid, a unique antibiotic called lactone, and a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory agent called calophyllolide.
A quick little note about the comedogenecy of Tamanu oil • This oil contains fairly high levels of both oleic and linoleic fatty acids2—oleic acid is a comedogenic fatty acid, while linoliec is not. As long as used in small quantities or diluted amounts (as we've done with our formula) and if used as recommended this oil comes very close to being non-comedogenic and it's skin-loving benefits greatly outweigh the potential comedogenic rating.
VITAMIN E OIL • Vitamin E is both a nutrient and antioxidant with a history of use in dermatology for over 50 years. Scientific research has shown it benefits a number of common skin concerns including burns, scars and wounds. It's also used in cosmetics to extend the shelf life and stability of many natural oils.
FRANKINCENSE SERRATA OIL • Frankincense essential oil contains properties that reduce feelings of anxiety, stimulate the immune system, and diminish signs of aging, among other demonstrated activities. It can be used cosmetically, medicinally, and for eliminating surface and airborne bacteria. Frankincense Serrata specifically has been said to relieve the discomfort of inflammation such as redness, itching, and swelling.
LITSEA CUBEBA OIL • Litsea Cubeba is a personal favorite in our household, but we believe it could become a favorite for anyone that tries it. The scent is lemony and refreshing, but If you have skin that is prone to excess sebum, acne, and breakouts, it may be just what you need to add to your skincare routine. Litsea Cubeba is high in natural alcohol which, in small diluted amounts, can be effective in removing any excess sebum oil. While its gentle astringent properties work to help cleanse your pores, its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory action can work to minimize and calm flare-ups.
