Berries in general are rich in phenolic molecules and known to be wonderful antioxidants. Blueberry is no different. In addition to that, it contains significant levels of linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) essential fatty acids that the body can not produce itself. Coupled with the high concentrations of tocopherols and carotenoids, blueberry seed oil is a treat to the skin as it is to the body.
Our blueberry oil is cold-pressed from and retains the refreshing natural aroma of the fruit.
- Protects skin against environmental stressors
- Protects transepidermal water loss (TEWL)
