the oils in this moisturizer are dry and light, yet skin softening. they were chosen for their high levels of the omego-6 fatty acid - linoleic acid. there may be a connection between low levels of linoleic acid and oily/acne prone skin. grape seed and evening primrose oils are both very light, dry oils that absorb quickly and are also rich in catechins - anti-oxidants that are found in green tea and berries. together these oils are anti-inflammatory and help relieve dry itchy skin. when our skin is stripped of its own natural oils by excessive washing or using harsh chemical-laden moisturizers, it sends signals to produce more sebum. overproduction of sebum tends to clog our pores and create blemished skin. jojoba oil is a light oil that is known to regulate the over-production of sebum which occurs in oily or blemished skin. our skin slows down the sebum production, and when it penetrates our pores and hair follicles - jojoba oil is known to unclog and clear them - protecting them. these oils combined will leave your skin feeling very soft and moisturized and not greasy.
tea tree leaf essential oil is important to balance because it is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiseptic and antiviral properties. our blend of essential oils were all chosen to target oily, red, inflamed, and scarred skin.

massage gently on face - wait a few minutes for the beautiful oils to absorb before applying make-up. may also use in the evening after cleansing skin. the oil is quickly absorbed and will leave your skin feeling very moisturized, supple, and super soft.
