The Antioxidant is made with an infused oil blend of grapeseed, safflower, castor and virgin hemp seed oil, with rosemary and artichoke as additional botanicals. This carefully crafted formula balances moisture, inhibits bacteria causing acne, and is low comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores. The Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) has benefited many skin "types", even oily prone, and sensitive skin. The oils, especially castor, are able to penetrate deep into pores removing hardened dirt and bacteria, without stripping it of its essential lipids (oils), leaving a clean, healthy looking glow.
Rosemary is high in antioxidants and can help protect skin cells from environmental damage like sun exposure and free radicals. It is also a natural antiseptic and does the job of killing unwanted bacteria. Since ancient times it has been revered for its medicinal properties and was traditionally used to help strengthen memory along with many other uses. It can be found in folklore throughout the centuries and it has been written, "where rosemary flourished, the women ruled".
Artichokes, native to East Africa, are also high in antioxidants and rich in vitamin C. Recent studies suggest that a phytochemical present in artichoke called Cynaropicrin can reduce signs of photo-aging.
