Essential Oils (EOs)
Unlike hydrosols, EOs contain higher concentrations of the more hydrophobic (oil soluble) fractions of the plants they are harvested from. Typically, these hydrophobic compounds offer the highest skin benefits.
Chamomile Essential Oil (Blue Chamomile, Matricaria recutita) - This EO has a high content of azulene, which imparts a blue color to this oil. Azulene is an anti-inflammatory compound. Chamomile has been shown to promote wound healing and help with eczema (see results here). Chamomile EO lends a subtle fragrance and is used in select products (Shade in a Bottle Day & Night Cream, REM Time Night Lotions, and Beach Bum Day & Night Lotion).
Rose Absolute Essential Oil (Rosa centifolia) - Rose essential oil is a fantastic oil for dry, mature, and sensitive skin. It also reduces redness and helps balance the skin. Our rose absolute is a high quality essential oil independently tested to ensure purity.
Rose EO also lends a beautiful light fragrance to the product (Shade in a Bottle Day & Night Cream, REM Time Night Lotions, and Beach Bum Day & Night Lotion).
