Signs of Aging?
Let's Talk About How Oleic and Linoleic Acids in Camellia Oil Can Substantially Improve Skin and Hair at Any Age.
It comes as no surprise that as our bodies age, we begin to notice drier skin, fine lines, and signs of damage from sun exposure and free-radicals in our skin and hair
Why Does This Happen?
Great Question! Lipids, which are the skin's natural fats and full of essential fatty acids, are an integral component of healthy skin. According to Kira Clark, licensed esthetician,
Lipids are key in strengthening the skin's protective barrier by helping prevent the loss of water and electrolytes. They also keep bad bacteria at bay as part of the skin's innate immune system.
And while young skin produces plenty of the essential fatty acids required to retain skin moisture and form a protective barrier against impurities, the production of these essential components begins to slow down as we age. Camellia Oil contains lipids, oleic acid, and linoleic acid to help combat signs of aging. The organic camellia oleifera oil ratios include 76-82% oleic acid and 5-11% linoleic acid.
Lets Take A Closer Look
First, oleic acid is an omega-9 fatty acid found in nearly all lipids; It is the major fatty acid in camellia oil, making up more than 80% of its composition. Oleic acid is responsible for camellia oils' ability to quickly and deeply penetrate the epidermis (top layers of the skin), boosting moisture retention in the skin, scalp, and hair follicles, restoring lipids that smooth, hydrate, and lift.
The Good News
The oleic content in GSX Organic Camellia Oil effectively penetrates the delicate layers of skin to deliver some pretty incredible benefits. These Essential fatty acids mimic those that are naturally found in the skin.
Approximately 80% of the fatty acid composition in organic camellia oil is in monounsaturated oleic acid. At the same time, it is a rich source of omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids and natural vitamin E. As camellia oil works its way into the skin, these naturally active ingredients begin to reduce unwanted signs of aging and exposure to outside elements. Fine lines, inflammation, and dark spots start to disappear. Additionally, because Camilla oil is light and non-comedogenic, meaning that it will not clog pores, you'll find that it is an excellent choice for acne-prone skin. With regular use, your skin will become noticeably firm and clear.
In addition to upping your skincare game, the oleic acid in camellia oil also enhances the beauty of your hair. Used on the scalp, the oleic acid content in camellia oil helps minimize water loss so that hair strands retain moisture and stay hydrated. Hydrated hair means no more brittle ends, less time blow-drying, and more time enjoying lusciously soft and shiny hair!
Speaking of hair, did you know that oleic acid may also help in the quest to inhibit hair loss? According to some research (1), since oleic acid increases the skin's permeability to enhance absorption, it could increase the effectiveness of hair loss treatments.
Second, linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. This fatty acid is essential for our health, including skin and hair growth, but it is not produced in our bodies. If our bodies can't create this essential fatty acid (EFA), then how do we get it? We obtain this vital component through the foods we eat, such as fish, poultry, nuts, eggs, leafy vegetables, and plant oils. Linoleic Acid (Vitamin F) is critical for providing skin with the moisture it requires for supple skin without heaviness. Linoleic Acid also serves to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, hyperpigmentation, and air pollutants.
Finally, the best way to keep your skin looking and feeling its best is to opt for natural products and a simple skincare regimen. Studies show that the most effective way to introduce essential fatty acids into the skin is to use products with a composition nearest to our own lipid composition. It is also worth mentioning that the method of oil processing used is critical when selecting skincare products. GSX Organic Camellia Oil extracts its oils using a cold-pressing method; A heat and chemical-free process preserve the lipids' efficacy, oleic acid, and linoleic acid we've discussed.
With benefits like this, no wonder Camellia Oil has been revered throughout history as a natural beauty enhancement for skin and hair. Introducing GSX Camellia Oil will enhance your beauty regimen in one simple step for a bright, healthy glow and a more youthful appearance.
