If you’ve ever tried the SBT Seabuckthorn Rosacea Soothing Salve, consider this to be a lighter, liquid version of that. Despite the fact that it is light and comfortable for wear during the daytime (and sits nicely under makeup), it is deeply hydrating and nourishing because it is packed with moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients. This keeps skin calm and protected against damage from a climate controlled environment (air conditioning and heating) as well as outdoor extremes.
Coconut Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Seabuckthorn Seed Oil, Calendula Extract, and Chamomile Oil.
Why these ingredients work great for my rosacea-prone skin
Please note that I am a rosacea blogger, not a doctor or skin care expert. This is how I understand the benefits of these ingredients. If you really want to know about them from an actual knowledgeable natural skincare wizard (my term, not hers), please visit the SBT Seabuckthorn Apothecary and contact Crystal who can customize your formula based on the way this sample works with your skin.
Coconut Oil – A gorgeous natural and soothing carrier oil that absorbs into the skin very quickly. Though it can be used on its own as an effective skin moisturizer, it combines wonderfully with other ingredients as well. It offers an effective protective barrier for the skin while it helps to reduce protein and moisture loss. (Personal note from Rosy JulieBC – coconut oil on its own causes my skin to flare and break out. This formula does not do that to me)
Meadowfoam Oil – Meadowfoam is a tiny little winter-spring annual flower. This carrier oil is luxuriously moisturizing and has a range of healing, rejuvenating and soothing properties. It absorbs into skin quite easily, leaving behind a smooth and silky feeling. It is perfect for protecting skin against the elements without being too heavy or feeling greasy. Great for preventing flaking and scaling in harsh winter weather.
Seabuckthorn Seed Oil – These astounding berries contain huge amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids (including the rare Omega-7), beta carotene, and essential amino acids. The seed oil is absolutely precious in skin care for moisturizing, healing, calming and relieving inflamed skin. It has a slightly slower absorption rate than coconut oil, so give it a few minutes to absorb before applying makeup or lying on your pillow. (Personal note from Rosy JulieBC – unlike seabuckthorn berry oil, seabuckthorn seed oil does not dye my very pale skin orange)
Calendula Extract -This extract infuses into the carrier oils of Rosy Days to provide both soothing and softening properties to the skin. It is a luxurious support ingredient to enjoy even more anti-inflammatory and anti-redness benefits than would be provided by the other ingredients alone. This is a natural skin care favourite for overcoming skin inflammation, irritation and discomfort.
Chamomile Oil -This cute little flower has the look of a daisy and the soothing powers of the sandman! It has been used in natural medicine and skin care for centuries. It works seamlessly with the other ingredients to reduce redness, inflammation and flaky skin while it calms and soothes – all good things when you’re struggling with rosacea. (Personal note from Rosy JulieBC – this ingredient is a distant relative of the ragweed plant. If you’re allergic to ragweed, there’s a chance you could react to this ingredient, too. To know for sure, simply patch test in an inconspicuous area. Another great reason to buy this sample before purchasing a full-sized bottle!)
