Here's What Carrot Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil, and Retinol All Have In Common


The Firming Facial Serum didn't get its name by accident... this serum literally helps to tighten, regenerate, and firm skin. How does it do it? That's what we're going to be chatting about today.

The Firming Facial Serum includes many nourishing herbs, botanicals, and oils, but two oils in particular were included in this serum because of their aging graceful qualities. Rosehip Oil and Carrot Seed Oil are star ingredients in this facial serum, for many reasons! However, they possess a unique quality that other oils do not.

Both of these oils act as a natural form of retinol. You probably have heard of retinol, since it's one of the most popular skin treatments on the market. In short, retinol is a facial treatment made from concentrated vitamin A that helps to resurface the skin, removing dead skin cells, fading fine lines, and helping fade hyperpigmentation (among other things). You can see why this anti-aging facial treatment is so popular already.

However, many people cannot handle this type of concentrated retinol on their skin and have adverse skin reactions. Plus, it is not recommended for nursing mommas or pregnant ladies. Some skin reactions can include intense peeling/flaking of the skin, dryness, redness, etc. Retinol also does thin the skin so when using it, extra sun exposure precautions should be taken to protect the skin.

Okay, so what does our Firming Serum have to do with this? Well, its two main ingredients, Carrot Seed Oil & Rosehip Oil contain naturally occurring retinoic acid and and beta-carotene, which are different forms of vitamin A! This means that this serum is a star at gently targeting fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and even acne. All without causing adverse skin reactions.

A little more on Rosehip Seed Oil & Carrot Seed Oil:

Carrot Seed Oil - This powerhouse oil is prized for its ability to regenerate skin tissues. Filled with Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and F, each drop is dense with antioxidants that protect your skin's cells from the harsh, cruel world and bring back its tone, elasticity, and tightness.


Rosehip Seed Oil - Rosehip Seed Oil is light amber in color. It is considered a “dry” oil, meaning that it soaks into the skin easily and does not leave a greasy residue. This unique oil contains essential fatty acids and has carried much respect among professional journals and organizations as being a great emollient for dry or mature skin. It is a wonderful hydrator and penetrates dry skin immediately.

If you are someone who cannot handle retinol or retinoids, then our serum would be a great alternative for you.
