Basic: Sunflower Head-to-Toe Oil
It is official, sunflowers are the ultimate sunbathers. Why else would young sunflowers turn to the east to greet the sun, and slowly turn west following it till sunset? (It’s true, google it!) Rich in beta carotene and antioxidants such as Vitamin E and Omegas 6 and 9, sunflower oil will help to hydrate, soften and rejuvenates all skin types, even the delicate ones of young children. It is non-comedogenic and great for use on troubled skin.
This can be used as a head-to-toe treatment oil, and suitable for use also as a waterproof make-up remover.
Refills or purchases by volume are available at our Beauty Kitchen @ Lavender. Please check our opening hours before heading down. You may choose to use your own containers for storage but please ensure cleanliness of the bottles to prevent any contamination!
All skin types
As a moisturiser: Pump 3-4 drops of oil into your palm and activate it with body heat by rubbing your hands together for 5 seconds. Gently press your palms onto your face and neck.
As a facial supplement: Pump 1-2 drops and mix the oil into your moisturiser. You can also use it before applying it as a foundation to your beauty regime.
As a hair treatment oil: Pump 1-2 drops of oil and rub directly onto hair ends. Use before heat styling to protect the hair from over-heating.
As a facial cleanser: Pump 3-4 times onto your fingertips and massage in a circular motion all over your face for 30 seconds. Follow the rest of your skincare routine with one more round of cleansing (Oil Cleansing Method!) using your usual facial cleanser. We recommend using this cleanser with one of our Organic Facial Bars.
For a targeted removal of make-up: Pump 2-3 times directly onto a facial towel or cotton round. Lightly hold it against the intended area(s) and wait for a few seconds to allow the oil to dissolve the make up.* Gently wipe off after.
*While this is an ultra gentle oil, it can sting your eyes upon contact! Therefore, please exercise caution to avoid getting the oil into your eyes. If affected, please wash out with water.
We have sourced for this special oil as an essential supplement for targeting your skin's unique needs. It is direct-from-farm, and 100% unrefined, cold-pressed and certified organic. Cold-pressed oils are made by extracting oil from seeds or nuts without adding chemicals or heat, and therefore tend to be safer for skin use.
This facial oil does not contain any added fragrances nor essential oils, and is safe for use during pregnancy.
Comedogenic Rating: 0
The comedogenic rating simply measures how likely a facial oil will clog your pores. It ranges from 0 (little or no chance of clogging) to 5 (rich and high likelihood of clogging). Anyone who is acne-prone should avoid highly comedogenic oils, while those with drier skin types will need the extra richness from oils towards the middle of the scale to bring moisture to their skin barrier.
As with all products you are using for the first time, it is advisable to do a patch test to check for allergies.
- Apply a small amount of oil into the inside of your forearm.
- Cover the area with a bandage and leave it alone.
- Check the area again in 24 hours. If you don’t see any redness, swelling, or other irritation, the product should be safe to use. You may now add the oil to your routine.
