Australian Botanicals Nourishing Facial Oils
Founder’s Formula Nourishing Facial Oils includes 7 Australian Botanical Nutrient-Rich Organic Oils that quickly absorb deep into the skin, delivering a broad spectrum of benefits for healthy, dewy skin.
WHAT IT DOES
- Supports healthy, even skin.
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines
- Mildly exfoliates
These oils are the Super Stars of Australian Botanical oils and work synergistically. Some of the benefits, such as hydration and improving the appearance of skin texture, are immediate. Other benefits, such as supporting the skin matrix and brightening, result from consistent use over a period of up to 28 days.
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.
Strawberry Gum Oil (Eucalyptus olida) is especially high in pro-aging anti-oxidant and hydrating phyto-actives with proven strong anti-inflammatory and anti-fatigue activity.
Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) grows in the semi-arid parts of Australia. Like its Indian cousin, Australian sandalwood is highly prized in skin care. Rich in Omega 3, 6, 9, and ximenynic acid, it reduces the appearance of fine lines, improves skin tone and hydration, and supports dermal strength.
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 de-pigmentation.
Rosella Flower (Hibiscus sabdariffa) in Sunflower seed oil is rich in anti-oxidants and mildly acidic, allowing gentle exfoliation over time. Rosella is also rich in Mucilage, a naturally occurring emollient produced by plants to store water and food that nourishes and hydrates skin. Rosella is thought to have originated in Sri Lanka, introduced to Australia by Indonesian fisherman. In the wild, you can find this edible hibiscus growing in the forest, rainforest and sand dune regions of our tropical north. Having grown here for thousands of years, Rosella has developed characteristics that make it uniquely Australian. It is absorbed deeply into the skin and has been proven to hydrate the skin for up to 72 hours.
Buddha Wood Oil (Eremophila mitchellii), also known as Australian Desert Rosewood, grows in the inland areas of New South Wales and Queensland. Commonly used as a meditation oil, Buddha Wood is ideal as a calming oil for skin.
Kangaroo Flower (Anigozanthos flavidus) in Sunflower oil (Helianthus annuus). Excellent for hydration and skin support, the desert Kangaroo Flower is packed with nutritious fatty acids. Sunflower oil is high in Vitamin E and also contains oleic acid that acts as a partitioning agent cutting through the skin barrier, moisturising and nourishing the skin as well as assisting the absorption of other oil-soluble ingredients.
Also included in this formula:
Marula (Sclerocarya birrea) seed oil is not an Australian oil, but is included in this formulation for its exceptional absorbability, to balance the other heavier oils, and because it is rich in antioxidants and Omegas 6 and 9.
Australian-grown Organic Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) seed oil is called an oil, but is technically a wax. We include it in this formula because it is rich in Vitamins E and B complex. Jojoba has skin repair and anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce redness caused by dryness. Jojoba shares the same molecular structure as the natural oils found in healthy human skin and assists the absorption of the Australian Botanical Oils in this formula.Tocopherol is a natural Vitamin E preservative with strong anti-oxidant action.
These facial oils are suitable for sensitive skin. They contain no fragrances and we do not use any oils in their Essential Oil form.
Founder’s Formula Nourishing Facial Oils is created with nutrient-rich ingredients sourced from pristine environments to ensure high levels of phyto-actives.
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 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 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.
