Hot Trend: Meadowfoam Oil

Meadowfoam oil is the powerhouse skincare ingredient that you never knew you needed! Some of you may adore your skin oils and know that life is not truly full without them. Others of you may have found that using facial oil wasn’t for you--that some oils are comedogenic (that means that it has a propensity to clog pores and potentially lead to acne) and even irritating so you have sworn off of them. Enter Meadowfoam oil...

Not all oils are created equal and meadowfoam oil might just be the plant-based oil that is the perfect fit for your skin. You may associate oils with being heavy or greasy--not meadowfoam oil. It's lightweight, suitable for all skin types, and compliments other skincare ingredients because of it's unique, velvety texture without being greasy--it feels light as air.  

Meadowfoam oil keeps skin hydrated and is actually very similar to the natural oil your skin produces on its own, but higher in fatty acid than your natural skin oil. Because it is so similar to our natural skin oil, it works to leave skin smooth and supple without clogging pores.

As skin ages, dehydration enhances the appearance of wrinkles. Typical moisturizers sit on the top of skin, but since meadowfoam oil emulates the skin’s natural oils to lock moisture into the skin, it can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The high content of antioxidants in meadowfoam oil helps prevent sun damage and reduces oxidative stress - it can even help block out ultra violet rays so it's a great add to your daily on-the-go skincare routine!
