VITA-OIL (1 oz)
A very light, soothing oil that quickly penetrates and moisturizes the most sensitive and delicate skin. Contains esters of Vitamins A, C & D.
Specially formulated for people with conditions affected by inflammation, such as rosacea, and people with severe dry skin. Vita-Oil does not occlude the skin or prevent medicated products from being absorbed. And it will not clog pores.
Vita-Oil can also be useful when someone with sensitive skin initiates an anti-aging regimen. And users with normal skin will benefit from the ingredients in Vita-Oil.
Jojoba oil is a popular and well tolerated part of many rosacea sufferers’ moisturizing regime. It blends in really well on wet skin and gives an excellent moisturized feel to it.
1. Jojoba oil in our Vita-Oil is processed to remove contaminants & microorganisms before being added to the formulation. Natural oils are easily contaminated especially if water is allowed to get into the product. We provided a dropper with our Vita-Oil for better control in using the product.
2. Vita-Oil contains other ingredients which help its effectiveness. One is lecithin. This is a natural phospholipid quite similar to the lipid in our epidermal barrier. Lecithin also acts as an emulsifier – allows water on the skin to bind with the jojoba oil. As we know, water and oil do not mix. Water is what hydrates the skin. Oil prevents the water from evaporating. Vita-Oil will mix with the water because of the presence of this natural emulsifier. This is the rationale for advising the consumer to use Vita-Oil on wet skin.
3. Vita-Oil also contains other ingredients which serve as anti-oxidants. Aside from the lecithin which is also an anti-oxidant, the others are esters of vitamin C & A. Anti-oxidants have beneficial effects on the skin. During formulating stage of Vita-Oil, one of the criteria we had was to have a simple product with as few ingredients as possible. This is critical for hypersensitive skin. The few ingredients included serve a purpose.
