Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Facial Oil
Lapis Lazuli, a favorite stone of ancient Egypt, is known for its gorgeous deep blue color. Lapis Facial Oil is named for the precious blue oils it contains, including Blue Tansy and Blue Yarrow.
These oils contain a component called Azulene which acts as a powerful anti inflammatory and anti bacterial that aids in reducing redness and clarifying the complexion. Formulated for combination, oily and blemish prone skin types or any skin in need of relief from inflammation.
Facial Oil for Oily Skin? Often times when we over wash our skin and do not moisturize thoroughly it overcompensates by producing more oil and sebum leading to oilier skin and clogged pores. The Lapis Facial Oil is made with 100% natural pure plant oils that will thoroughly hydrate your skin without clogging pores so that it can stop producing excess oil and find the balance it needs. In short, yes, oily skin needs moisture too and is often dehydrated leading to dry patches and the overcompensation of oil and sebum.
Concentrated Moisture. In contrast to traditional cream moisturizers and lotions which tend to be high in water and emulsifying agents but low in effective ingredients the Lapis Facial Oil contains no fillers and are formulated with only effective natural ingredients. They absorb easily to get moisture, vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants into your skin. Additionally, they form a natural lipid barrier to lock moisture in and protect against dryness and heat in the environment.
