Why we stand behind it
This protective day oil provides moisturizing balance with EFA (essential fatty acid) oils, which are crucial to maintaining healthy skin. Also formulated with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a type of omega-3 from algae, that may help reduce signs of aging by blocking UV-induced enzymes that destroy collagen.
Spectra tests show high levels of UV protection in the long wavelength, UVA range, probably due to its high carotenoid content.
Kiwi seed and chia seed oils: Provide hard-to-get omega-3s from plant sources.
Algae oil high in EPA: Moderates inflammation while blocking UV-induced enzymes that destroy collagen.
Olive and sesame seed oils and helichrysum essential oil: An anti-inflammatory.
Pomegranate seed, tomato seed, and broccoli seed oils: Provide special antioxidant protection from carotenoids and sulforaphane (a compound with sun protective properties).
Astaxanthin and red raspberry seed oil: Provide environmental protection because they help absorb UV rays.
What is an undertone?
An undertone is the color beneath the surface of your skin, which never changes (even with a tan). There are three types of undertones:
I see red or pink undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin burns easily, but barely tans.
My skin looks better in silver jewelry than gold.
I see both pink and yellow undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
My skin sometimes burns and sometimes tans.
My skin looks good in both gold and silver jewelry.
I see yellow or golden undertones around the perimeter of my face and neck.
