Protective Day Oil
(formerly Oil de Jour)
Filter UVA with CAROTENOIDS, and moisturize + reduce inflammation with balanced EFA OILS.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are crucial to building and maintaining healthy skin from the cell membranes to the natural oil barrier. The right balance of omega-6/omega-3 oils applied topically will help prevent inflammation.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a special type of omega-3, prevents wrinkles by blocking UV- induced enzymes that destroy collagen. Spectra tests on PROTECTIVE DAY OIL show high levels of UV protection in the long wavelength, UVA range, probably due to its high carotenoid content.
SPECTRA-TESTED-CAROTENOIDS (BETA CAROTENE) + ASTAXANTHIN provide protection in the UVA range, delaying formation of wrinkles.
EPA prevents destruction of collagen.
