DESCRIPTION: Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are crucial to building and maintaining healthy skin from the cell membranes to the natural oil barrier. The right balance of omega-6/omega-3 oils applied topically will help prevent inflammation.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a special type of omega-3, prevents wrinkles by blocking UV- induced enzymes that destroy collagen. Spectra tests on PROTECTIVE DAY OIL show high levels of UV protection in the long wavelength, UVA range, probably due to its high carotenoid content.
SPECTRA-TESTED-CAROTENOIDS (BETA CAROTENE) + ASTAXANTHIN provide protection in the UVA range, delaying formation of wrinkles.
EPA prevents destruction of collagen.
Delays signs of aging by reducing inflammation with balanced OMEGA-6s/OMEGA-3s.
HOW TO USE: Shake well before each use. In the morning, apply Protective Day Oil to face, neck and chest after use of cleanser, mist, and serum. In order to completely cover face, neck and chest normal skin requires about 4-6 drops, dry skin 8-10 drops, very dry, dehydrated or damaged skin up to 20 drops. We recommend wearing our Everyday Coverage Tinted Sunscreen SPF30 as your final daytime step, rain or shine. If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician. Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
