You may have heard the hype about rosehip oil – it’s known for being a superstar in skincare for its anti-aging effects.
Rosehip oil is made from the small fruit that sits beneath the rose; it’s a pressed seed oil that has been used since ancient times for its healing properties. It’s shown to have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties while being loaded with skin-nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. We love the skincare benefits that it provides, which is why we included it as an ingredient in Ambre Blends Skin Tonic.
Grab a bottle of Skin Tonic and apply after drying off from your shower or bath – your skin will soak up the benefits of rosehip oil!
October is all about pumpkins. Pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin pies, pumpkin carving…
But here at Ambre Blends we’re into pumpkin seed oil all year long!
Although it is not widely known, the oil extracted from these tiny seeds provides us with a long list of benefits, which is why we use it in Ambre Blends Skin Tonic. Pumpkin Seed Oil has been produced and used in southeastern Austria since the 18th century as a culinary specialty. It is high in antioxidants, enzymes, essential fatty acids, iron, zinc, fiber, and vitamins E and C. This makes it an oil that’s good for you both inside and out.
Due to the fact that pumpkin seed oil is rich in fatty acids (as well as an excellent anti-inflammatory), it helps calm and soothe redness in your skin while also keeping it hydrated. We love using Ambre Blends Skin Tonic after a long day in the sun, and we can thank the pumpkin seed oil for helping to speed up the repair of irritated skin while keeping proper moisture levels.
The antioxidants in pumpkin seed oil promote anti-aging while protecting the skin from damage. Due to its nice, light, and smooth texture, it penetrates well into the skin as a moisturizer. And since it has a comedogenic rating of only two, you can feel safe using it even if you have oily or acne-prone skin.
We’re not done praising this oil quite yet! The high levels of zinc and vitamin E found inside help to improve skin tone, aid in skin renewal, and even fight acne. You may have heard of vitamin E being referred to as the “beauty vitamin” because it promotes healthy, beautiful skin from the inside and out. This hard-working oil helps regulate proper skin cell production, encouraging cell turnover and maintaining collagen levels. What does this mean for you? More youthful looking skin!
Beyond skin benefits, pumpkin seed oil has benefits for your hair and your diet, too. Loaded with nutrients, we want to shout our love for it from the rooftops! It’s time to give this powerful oil the praise it deserves, not only in the fall but all year round.
You might not know about sea buckthorn yet, but this miracle berry is gaining popularity for its wide range of benefits from cardiovascular support to anti-aging properties.
Don’t let the name fool you, we don’t find this oil in the sea. Instead, it comes from berries and seeds of the sea buckthorn plant which grows in the mountainous and coastal areas of Europe and Asia. For hundreds of years, people have been using the oil squeezed from its berries to revitalize their skin and heal wounds!
The bright orange color of the berries is a sign of high carotenoid content (similar to carrots). It was used in China and India for general immunity reasons as well as to relieve coughs and help digestion. During the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, sea buckthorn was used to help heal the skin of burn victims.
Ambre Blends Skin Tonic was developed exclusively for the purpose of rejuvenating your skin and providing a healthy glow to your face and body. For this reason, we use sea buckthorn oil as one of the 18 natural and certified organic ingredients. We are proud to be on the forefront of incorporating this skin superfood into our Skin Tonic four years ago! The medicinal and healing properties of these 18 ingredients combined will keep you looking healthy and vibrant!
