EFA AntiStress Facial Oil With White Tea, Microalgae, and Hyaluronic Liposomes

Suitable for: Dry and dehydrated skin types.

By now we know stress is not good for us. Likewise, internal and external stressors can affect the skin health. Yes, we can all do with less stress in our lives. Regular exercise, meditation, well-balanced diet, cutting back on alcohol and caffeine are just some of the ways to try and deal with stress. But what about our skin? Stress can lead to inflammation, irritation and premature aging.

Our EFA AntiStress facial oil repairs compromised skin barrier, deeply hydrates, soothes, boosts and recharges dry and dehydrated skin. White Tea extract contains high levels of catechins, a powerful antioxidant. Catechins inhibit MMP, enzymes that degrade collagen and elastin.

Another key component in our formula is the microalgae extract. Devised by biochemists whose sole focus are microalgae compounds, the type of marine plankton used in our formula blocks the collagen-degrading chemicals.

Every great product for dry and dehydrated skin needs some Hyaluronic acid. EFA AntiStress facial oil contains anhydrous Hyaluronic Acid liposomes with Tripeptide-29. It works in two ways. Because it is slowly released, it hydrates and plumps up fine lines and wrinkles. It also triggers the chain reaction that encourages collagen synthesis and reduces inflammation. Tripeptide-29 is another ingredient that boosts collagen synthesis.

The formula is rounded up with a blend of fatty acids (Tomato Seed, Prickly Pear, Andiroba, Squalane and Oat Kernel oils) to improve the skin’s barrier function.

EFA AntiStress facial oil is suitable for vegans and fragrance and silicone free.

EFA ProRepair Facial Oil with Tocoretinate-10 and Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate

Suitable for: All skin types (even sensitive and acne-prone skin).

EFA ProRepair facial oil is an updated version of our EFA Intense Night Repair. It combats hyperpigmentation, tackles the signs of aging and helps to improve scar recovery.

A key ingredient in our formula is 5% Ascorbyl Teraisopalmitate, a stable vitamin C ester. It is a gentle and non-irritating version of vitamin C with anti-inflammatory benefits. It fades hyperpigmentation and boosts collagen synthesis.

The new ingredient in our EFA ProRepair formula is 2% Tocoretinate-10. Developed by the same Japanese company responsible for Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, it is a retinoic acid ester formed by bonding retinoic acid with vitamin E.

Why did we include this ingredient? Because vitamin E potentiates the action of vitamin C. When combined together in a formula these two ingredients deliver fantastic results in terms of anti-aging, reduction of hyperpigmentation and improving skin’s elasticity and firmness.

Tomato Seed oil has antioxidant properties and is rich in essential fatty acids. Squalane suits all skin types and absorbs easily. EFA ProRepair formula also contains vitamin D3 and a blend of concentrated botanical extracts that have been carefully chosen to improve skin’s elasticity and firmness.

EFA Pro-Repair oil is suitable for vegans and fragrance and silicone free.
