Australian Botanicals Brightening Facial Oils
Founder's Formula Brightening Facial Oils includes Australian Botanical nutrient-rich organic oils that absorb deeply into the skin, refreshing cells, breaking up melanin clumps and delivering an even-toned, radiant skin.
WHAT IT DOES
- Brightens and supports even skin-tone
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines
- Mildly exfoliates
These oils are the Super Stars of Australian Botanical oils for brightening. They support the skin matrix and brighten with great results if used consistently.
Macadamia (Macadamia ternifolia) seed oil is rich in natural hydrating fatty acids, and especially rich in Omega 7. Known as 'The Beauty Omega', it occurs in salmon, sea buckthorne and macadamia and is essential to the manufacture of collagen. Macadamia is an Australian native, sometimes called Queensland Nut Tree or Maroochy Nut and is also exceptionally rich in naturally occurring squalene, (not to be confused with the synthesised squalane), which the skin produces as its own natural moisturant.
Native Snowflower Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) contains flavan-3-ol, a catechin with 100 times more potent antioxidant activity than Vitamin C and 25 times more potent than Vitamin E. Snowflower also contains quercetin which is a proven anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant surpassing even retonic acid. It also has high levels of kaempferol which serve to break up melanin for brightening.
Kakadu Plum Seed Oil is rich in gallic acid which restores the skin barrier and ellagic acid which results in skin elasticity and suppleness. Gallic acid is also a natural anti-inflammatory that helps reduce redness and irritation.
Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum), like its Indian cousin, is highly prized in skin care. Rich in Omega 3, 6, 9, and the rare ximenynic acid. Ximenynic Acid has a significant impact on the skin aging process as it increases microcirculation, reduces enlarged pores and distension and discoloration of the skin and firms the skin.
Anigozanthos flavidus (Kangaroo Flower) in Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) Seed Oil is the perfect complement to these brightening oils, as it speeds up the cell renewal process, supporting new, fresh skin cells to work their way to the top.
Strawberry Gum Oil is especially high in pro-aging anti-oxidant and hydrating phyto-actives with proven, strong anti-inflammatory and anti-fatigue activity.
Founder’s Formula Brightening Facial Oils are created with nutrient-rich ingredients sourced from pristine environments to ensure high levels of phyto-actives. The formula is supported by the addition of an oil-based Vitamin C complex.
HOW TO USE IT
A little goes a long way. Apply 1-2 drops morning and night after, or instead of, moisturiser.
Partner with Founder’s Formula Phyto-A+ Australian Native Tobacco to build collagen and Australian Botanicals Pro-Aging Treatment Serum for multiple pro-aging action; and/or with Founder’s Formula Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum for sun damaged or very pigmented or wrinkled skin.
For especially stubborn pigmentation, use FADE, Native Snowflower Dark Spot Serum as a spot treatment to complement the Australian Botanicals Brightening Facial Oils.
For best results apply in the following order: serums, then moisturiser, then oils. Apply SPF last.
If using more than one serum in your routine, it is fine to mix the serums before applying.
You can also pat oils on a dry face during the day or night, any time, over your moisturiser.
Storage: To extend the life of your Founder's Formula natural oils and serums, store in a cool, dry, dark place.
