"The intensive nutrition of holistic skincare makes it possible to create the look of plump, revitalized, youthful skin without irritation. Every ingredient is chosen for its combination of efficacy and gentleness, so you don't have to suffer through the discomfort of needles, deep and painful peels, or retinols that can dry skin and cause sensitivity and flaking. Nourish now and support your skin instead.
Timeless includes a potent, bioavailable fruit seed oil base with an effective level of stabilized Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbyl Palmitate. The tricky thing in working with Vitamin C often becomes absorbency into the skin and stability. As a highly active antioxidant it can degrade while in your jars and bottles if not protected, rendering it useless once it hits skin. Ascorbyl palmitate solves both these problems with an oil soluble ester that both remains stable on the shelf and penetrates deep to skin cells due to the fact that it can mix with oils easily.
We also add Tocopherols (Vitamin E) isolated from non-GMO soy oil sources. Vitamin E is like the superhero sidekick, and it supports Vitamin C to renew it and multiply each of their antioxidant benefits. Together magnify the look of brightness so skin appears even in tone and lighter than before use.
The base oils we've chosen to carry the Vitamin C start with a majority of Organic Pomegranate oil. We went to extra lengths to ensure our supply of organic oil this year especially for this product, which means more antioxidant content. Pomegranate oil is a unique source of Omega 5 fatty acid - Punicic acid, an antioxidant with a high affinity for the epidermis. Pomegranate oil is viscous and almost resinous to touch and when applied to dry skin provides immediate protective and soothing benefits.
For valuable Omega 3 fatty acids we then add Chia Seed oil. Chia is suitable to moisturize irritated skin and also helps rebuild the lipid barrier of the skin for extended comfort. Blackberry Seed oil and Baobab elegantly condition with antioxidants to maintain the youthful appearance of skin.
Due to our previous supply source of Organic Rice Bran oil being unavailable we have had to make a minor change to the recipe of this product as we were unwilling to source non Organic, solvent-extracted Rice Bran oil. Cold pressed Rice Bran oil is exceedingly rare as it turns out. Sesame oil is non allergenic, antioxidant rich, and has a similar feel and aroma to Rice Bran oil, making it an excellent substitute.
Timeless is free from ethyl alcohol, gluten, all scents, and nut ingredients. The product has a thick consistency and a slightly fruity, earthy aroma from the seed oils and soaks into skin very well. Even people with multiple allergies and severely sensitive skin were able to use Timeless during our testing and development and achieved excellent results.
Due to the thickness of Pomegranate oil and it's high concentration in this recipe we do not recommend this product for acneic skin types as the oil does remain on the surface of skin longer than our other oil serums. Instead for skin prone to acne we recommend Flawless or Restore which are more absorbent into the skin and contain compounds more beneficial to that skin type."
Shake product well to mix active ingredients thoroughly (separation occurs while product is sitting). Dispense several drops of oil and pat gently around eye area and face twice per day for maximum results.
Usage note: If your daily routine includes extensive sun exposure we recommend using this product primarily at night or using a Zinc based sunscreen to block UVB rays. One scientific study has found that Ascorbyl Palmitate may not remain stable within skin when it is exposed to UVB rays. We are not aware of studies duplicating these results at this time but as this is a potent, penetrating active ingredient for now we would recommend being conscious of sun exposure when using this product to get the absolute best benefit. UVB rays can be blocked or avoided to allow the nutrient to do its best work.
