When I opened my Etsy shop initially, it was because of an overwhelming demand from readers because instead of DIYing certain products, they wanted me to make them and sale them. Today, I’m going to share a recipe for one of my most popular products in the shop-DIY coQ10 Sea Buckthorn facial oil. That way, you can decide for yourself if you’d rather DIY or BUY!
After thinking about it, I decided it was a great idea, chose my most effective and popular DIYs and opened my shop. What I always knew was that if I were to actually sale skin care, I wanted to treat my customers like I would like to be treated.
It goes without saying that I would want high quality skin care that works. I also want total transparency and in most products I want simplicity. I want ingredients I recognize that are ethically sourced, packaged in glass and GMO free. That being said, my recipes are on this blog for everyone to see so that you can decide whether the product is right for you and whether you want to buy it or make it!
So today I’m sharing my coQ10 Sea Buckthorn Facial oil recipe and also tell you about the ingredients used in this recipes so you can see why these DIYs are so effective!!
DIY Facial Oil Ingredients:
My coQ10 & Sea Buckthorn Facial Oil is my most potent anti aging oil because it contains 3 extremely effective ingredients for anti aging. When I found an oil soluble coQ10, I knew I had to have it in a facial product. coQ10 is known for reversing the signs of aging as well as restoring moisture content in the skin. CoQ10 is very helpful in aiding the body in producing more collagen and elastin.
Sea Buckthorn is high in essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols, and phytosterols. It contains over 190 nutrients and phytonutrients, including vitamin C, which is 12 times higher than that of an orange!! It is a powerful antioxidant, destroying harmful free-radicals.
Rosehip seed oil regenerates cells and increases collagen production. It is rich in vitamin C, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and retinoic acid, which studies have shown it brightens and tightens skin!
This facial oil also contains a blend of lavender, frankincense, patchouli and geranium essential oils which all work together to brighten and tighten the skin!
