Hibiscus seed oil contains a high concentration of Omega 6 linoleic acid as well as gamma-tocopherol (vitamin E) which help to moisturise and strengthen the health of the skin’s barrier.

It also contains a small percentage of sterculic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid, plus citric acid and malic acid, which all help give the oil mild exfoliating properties. These properties can help to speed up cell turnover, resulting in a more even looking skin tone.

Hibiscus Oil is also rich in flavonoids, carotenoids and tannins, which can help protect against free radical damage and environmental stressors. These also give the oil slightly astringent properties, helping to reduce the appearance of large pores for a smoother complexion.

Hibiscus oil is said to help firm and lift skin by increasing skin elasticity. It does this by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme elastase, which is responsible for breaking down our skin’s elastin.

It is also said to lessen the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots, which can occur due to sun exposure.

It has a fast absorption rate and leaves a silky feel on the skin.

Also known for its benefits in haircare, helping strengthen, thicken and add volume to hair and gently exfoliate hair follicles to stimulate hair grown and minimize dandruff.
