They say that the Amazon rainforest may house undiscovered plants that can cure nearly every ailment on Earth, so it’s no surprise that we consider the land to be especially magical. In fact, when formulating eXO Face, we were inspired by all the amazing things plants can do for our body. What are they and what do they do? Here’s a rundown:
Not only does the oil of this tropical fruit burnish rough patches and plump cells, it also has antimicrobial properties that help fight off bacteria and infection. Basically, it’s like sending your skin on a rejuvenating island vacation twice a day, every day.
Derived from the seeds of grapefruit (who knew?!) grapeseed oil is a truly do-it-all ingredient. This versatile skin enhancer is loaded with free radical-fighting elements like beta-carotene, vitamin D and essential fatty acids, all of which help to subtly firm, rejuvenate and lift your skin.
We love a bittersweet underdog story. Noni fruit grows on a shrub-like bush and has a bitter taste that, while key in a variety of cultural cuisines, make it unpalatable for most. The good news is that its oil has been shown to tighten skin, phase out redness and puffiness, and promote efficient cellular function.
You’re probably familiar with the calming properties of eucalyptus from different types of cold and flu remedies, but did you know it can work magic on your skin as well? This plant has antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal properties which can help do things like alleviate skin inflammation, heal blemishes and prevent breakouts in the first place.
It would be nuts if we forgot to mention this nutrient-packed eXO Face ingredient. Macadamia oil is renowned as having one of the highest concentrations of palmitoleic fatty acids, the kind that are thought to prevent premature aging. It also contains other fatty acids that help encourage cell regeneration and lock in moisture.
Stay tuned for our final installment of our “Land, Sea and Me” Series, where we dig into the “Me”–the bioidentical exosomes that work to sync cells for hydration and radiance.
