The ingredients:

Barbary fig (aka prickly pear seed oil) penetrates below the surface of the skin for maximum benefits without leaving any oily residue. It's great for all skin types, supporting skin repair after trauma & providing protection from environmental stress. Excellent for mature skin as it helps address signs of ageing, while the high fatty acid content plumps skin to help smooth wrinkles & increase firmness. Also highly beneficial to dry hair & scalp, soothing irritation & boosting shine.

Coenzyme Q10 is a rich antioxidant, said to help neutralise free radicals, reducing their concentrations & minimising their effect on collagen & elastin in the skin, keeping skin healthy, more elastic & looking firmer & younger.

Sea buckthorn seed oil is known for its anti-ageing benefits. Rich in vitamin C, also vitamins B1, B2, K, A, & E, folic acid & an array of fatty acids such as omega 3, 6, & 7. By hydrating the skin & promoting the formation of collagen, it can help to plump the skin, prevent sagging & smooth out fine lines & wrinkles.

Squalane - olive is fast absorbing, non-greasy, non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) & suitable for all skin types., particularly dry, sensitive, oily or acne prone skin. An excellent moisturiser leaving skin soft & hydrated, it is also said to help regulate oil production & protect skin from free radicals which cause premature signs of ageing.
