Feelin' the blues
Blueberries are an incredible powerhouse of antioxidants and vitamins, but did you know that they also offer blue light protection? Our incredible blueberry seed oil is a must-have for those looking for smoother, healthier skin. It can be found in our Berry Rich and Superfood Serum!
Read on for why your skin will love this oil berry much, and also why it's a sustainable choice!
Blue light is emitted from your screens (like your phone and laptop!), and effects your health in many different ways. It can lead to eye strain and dryness, and even trigger dermatological issues.
Our blueberry seed oil is a powerful protectant against damage caused by blue light emitted from your devices, as well as the sun. It works by absorbing blue light, working as a natural shield.
Anti-oxidants for banishing fine lines
Blueberry seed oil is rich in essential fatty-acids and protective phytosterols, which helps protect against oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals and external pollutants.
Vitamins for strengthening skin
Blueberry seed oil is also high in beta-carotene (or pro-vitamin A) helping to improve the condition and surface of the skin. This is a natural source of retinol (pro-vitamin A), which can help improve fine wrinkles, skin smoothness, and hyper-pigmentation of photo-damaged skin.
Fatty acids for extra hydration
Blueberry seed oil is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, all of which help to hydrate, nourish and strengthen overall skin condition.
It is also high in linoleic acid and oleic acid. Linoleic-rich oils nourish and protect the skin without being too heavy, whilst offering a method of hydration. Oleic acid is known to permeate skin layers without disordering other fatty acids in the skin. It also acts as a permeability enhancer for other compounds present in plant oils.
Our blueberry seed oil is a by-product of the juicing industry, using seeds that would otherwise be thrown away. 1kg of our blueberry seed oil contains the oil of 800,000 berries which have been diverted from waste.
