Do You Know Why Carrot Seed Oil And Rosemary Oil Are Beneficial?
At Edye’s Naturals we select our ingredients with the health of your skin in mind. We specifically formulate our products to enhance your skin’s natural healing ability. Let’s take an in-depth look at two of the ingredients we use in our products, carrot seed oil and rosemary oil, and why they are superior when it comes to skincare.
Since our products are all organic, we look to nature to help keep our products shelf stable, as opposed to harmful chemicals like conventional skincare products resort to. Did you know that the rosemary oil we use is a natural preservative? This is due to the strong antibacterial and antifungal actions of rosemary.
Along with helping maintain the quality of our products, rosemary oil is great for your skin. Rosemary oil contains several vital nutrients that your skin needs, including: iron, calcium and vitamin B6. All of these nutrients play a role in collagen production, which gives your skin structure and elasticity.
Rosemary oil contains potent antioxidants, including rosmarinic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties and is calming for skin conditions such as eczema and acne. As an antioxidant, rosemary oil is naturally anti-aging and also helps to protect against sun damage. It can also help to reduce puffiness and swelling of the skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating skin cell growth, resulting in firmer and more youthful looking skin.
Additionally, rosemary oil acts as a gentle exfoliant, helping to clear your pores without drying out your skin. Rosemary oil acts as a natural moisturizer, leaving you with softer, glowing skin.
Carrot Seed Oil
Another ingredient you will find in our products is carrot seed oil. Carrot seed oil is derived from the carrot plant, Daucus carota. Carrot seeds are the seeds from Queen Ann's Lace flower, which is the white flower many times found on the side of the road. The main reason we use carrot seed oil is because it helps to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. Carrot seed oil is vitamin-rich and has a high amount of Vitamin A and carotenoids, which help to naturally brighten the skin. Vitamin A and beta-carotene both aid in cell regeneration, resulting in healthier and younger looking skin.
Carrot seed oil is also high in antioxidants, including beta-carotene, which act to protect the skin from premature aging and help to slow down the aging process. Additionally, carrot seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its vitamin E and linoleic acid content, which are soothing to the skin and help to alleviate irritations such as dry skin, sunburn, and acne.
Carrot seed oil is able to further help with acne due to its antimicrobial properties. One of the main causes of acne is from your pores being clogged with your body’s own oils- this creates an environment in which bacteria can thrive. Carrot seed oil can help unclog pores and prevent acne breakouts.
This oil can be used on all skin types. Carrot seed oil has moistening properties, so your skin will be left feeling soft, yet not oily.
