Prevents premature skin aging... Carrot Seed Essential Oil is high in antioxidants,
which help protect the skin from UV rays, pollution, and stress. In
fact, carrot seed is very useful when added to sunscreen because of its
reputed ability to protect skin from free radicals produced by UV
radiation. Carotenoids, in particular, have been found to support the
body's natural immune response to UV rays, which can protect the skin
from damage due to UV exposure.
Reversing wrinkles and repairing skin damage... Scientists
think this is due to "carotol," a primary chemical present in carrot
seed oil. The oil also contains moisturizing vitamin E and protective
vitamin C, which work together to help stimulate healing, rejuvenation
and suppleness to skin. In fact, Carrot Seed Essential Oil has a
reputation for supporting the skin's natural ability to heal eczema,
psoriasis, and dermatitis. Rejuvenating skin cells and encouraging new
growth is at the apex of attaining and maintaining youthful, glowing
skin. The high carotol content also makes this oil a good option for
treating wounds and skin infections.
Balancing oily skin...
Good for dry and oily skin alike, Carrot Seed Essential Oil has the
ability to support balance! It is used to provide sufficient moisture
without clogging pores, thus making it useful for all skin types. In
fact, anyone with dull, lifeless skin is encouraged to use carrot seed
oil in their skin care products.
