Rice bran seed oil: Prized by Japanese women for centuries for it's hydrating and brightening benefits, rice bran oil (RBO) is also a skin softening superstar. RBO contains some phytochemicals (plant chemicals) such as tocotrienols, tocopherols, phytosterols, polyphenols, squalene and powerful anti-oxidant gamma oryzanol, that support skin's health. The high level of Vitamins E and B, omega 9 and a rich array of fatty acids, beta-carotene, CoQ10 and lycopene, help shield the skin from environmental stressors.
Evening Primrose oil (Oenothera biennalis): Native Americans have used evening primrose for healing purposes for millenia. It's leaves were used for minor wounds and sore throats, while the entire plant was used to help support the healing of bruises. It can help reduce redness and irritation, relieve topical inflammation and encourage the skin's natural healing processes. Its healing benefits may be due to its high gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) content. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid with potent anti-inflammatory properties.
Moringa seed oil (Moringa olifeira): Often called the tree of life since all parts of it- the bark, the leaves and seeds have therapeutic properties. Treasured above all, the oil has long been used in West Africa for food and medicine. Rich in vitamins B and C, this oil is known to nourish, condition, and encourage cell turnover of the skin, thereby helping to minimize the appearance of the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, and to enhance the complexion’s radiance and graceful aging.
Squalane: A super-lightweight, non-greasy, quick absorbing, saturated oil, formed when squalene* undergoes a hydrogenation process, which turns it into a stable, fully saturated oil with a long shelf life called squalane. The squalane used herein, is derived and created from sugar cane squalene.
Squalane is excellent for preventing irritation. Cinically to be non-irritating, this non-comodogenic oil, is particularly excellent for people with sensitive skin conditions, including rosacea, eczema and acne, as it can help regulate excess oil production and is soothing for cracked, chapped skin. A naturally antibacterial oil, squalane helps fight bacteria on the skin and protect from oxidative damage, caused by free radical that can accelerate age spots and premature aging.
*squalene is found in olives, sugarcane, wheat germ, rice bran, palm trees and shark liver. The squalane used in KAVANA products, is entirely derived from sugar cane.
St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum): This delicate little yellow flower is rich in flavonoids which are famous for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. That is what makes it so good at helping heal and repair the skin.
Topical application of St. John's wort macerated oil, has also been known to help sooth sensitive skin, thanks to it's tannins, and hydrate, thanks to natural essential oils in it that moisturize and plump up the look of skin, making appear more fresh and dewy. Consistent application will firm up the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and help support graceful aging.
Rosa damascena essential oil: Legend has it that Cleopatra soaked her ships sails in rose water before sailing, so that the scent of this royal flower would follow her everywhere she went and filled her royal chamber with rose petals before Marc Anthony visited her, ensuring he would associate the scent of the flower with her, every time he smelled one!
Aside from it's lovely scent, rose essential oil has potent medicinal properties, valuable for both internal and external applications. Topical applications in skincare, have shown excellent wound healing capabilities, thanks to it's extremely powerful anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. Proven effective against bacteria that can resist even the strongest of pharmaceutical antibiotics, including Propionibacterium acnes (the bacteria that causes acne). Just a few drops of this concentrated essential oil, can provide powerful protection against topical bacteria and infection, redness and inflammation.
Rosa damascena oil is also loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids, which are essential in fighting free-radicals and UV related damage. Vitamin C rich, Rosa damascena also helps with the production of collagen and elastin, aiding the maintenance of firm skin and graceful aging.
Long prized for it's scent, Rosa Damascena essential oil, derived from the hydro-distillation of rose petals, has been proven to provide relief from symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression upon inhalation. Especially beneficial to the parasympathetic nervous systems, it has been shown to be beneficial to post-partum mother's, inducing psychological and physiological feelings of relaxation.
Since fragrance compounds are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and interact with receptors in the central nervous system, the immediate benefit of this ancient form of aromatherapy is tangible via Kavana's Restorative Rose Nectar.
