This deeply soothing face serum is wonderful for every skin type, but a real gift for those with extra sensitive skin. Red raspberry seed oil makes up over 90% of this serum and it is extremely high in vitamin E, which reduces damage and scavenges free radicals. It's packed with carotenoids, which are crucial to healthy skin, and it's high in linoleic acid (omega 6) at 52% and low in oleic acid (omega 9) at 10%. Why is this important? For balanced, calm, and clear skin, look for oils higher in linoleic acid.
Sea buckthorn berry oil is not high in linoleic acid, but the high levels of vitamins C, E, and carotenoids make this an ingredient we can't keep to ourselves. What gives our Keep Calm serum its edge is pure German chamomile essential oil. Chamazulene, the chemical compound that gives the oil its beautiful color, is strongly anti-inflammatory and very soothing. It can also minimize the appearance of broken capillaries.
The red raspberry seed oil we choose comes from raspberries grown in Washington state. The cold pressed seed oil contains one of the highest phytosterols contents of any vegetable or fruit oil, making it excellent at preventing photo damage. It has amazing anti-inflammatory effects and has an SPF as high as 28-50.
Our choice of sea buckthorn berry oil is from Tibet, is cold pressed and also USDA Certified Organic. This oil is a sustainable, plant based source for omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9 as well as the rare omega 7. Sea buckthorn is also an antioxidant super star with many vitamins and minerals.
