New Ingredients for Anti Aging DIYs!!

Mountain Rose Herbs

I’ve been researching new ingredients lately for new recipes and have bought a few I wanted to share!  I got these new oils from my ingredient company of choice, Mountain Rose Herbs because I know I can trust their quality.  I know Amazon is the faster, easier and cheaper choice, but honestly-the quality in most that I’ve found on Amazon is very questionable.  In a world full of unnatural, the last thing you want is a GMO, pesticide containing ingredient that you thought was natural and safe.  

I’m exploring baobab oil, moringa oil, marula oil, sacha inchi oil, mango butter, helichrysum essential oil and a sandalwood roll on.  After researching each of these ingredients-I’m so excited to start creating new products because I found out some really interesting information about each product!!  

Baobab Oil

What lured me in with baobab oil is that it contains more antioxidants then goji berries and even matcha!  

It’s high in vitamin A, C and E.  

I also like that it absorbs quickly. It is a great oil for hair and nails because it contains proteins and calcium.  

Baobab is also a cleansing oil so it will be the perfect addition in cleansing oils and balms!

Sacha Inchi Oil

Sacha Inchi oil is 93% fatty acids (omegas 3, 6 and 9).  That’s crazy!  Especially when you compare it to coconut oil which is only 10%!  Because it is high in linoleic acid, it is an excellent oil for people with acne.  This oil will also help balance too much oil production.  You can read more HERE about why oils high in linoleic acid help clogged skin.

Marula Oil

Marula oil is uniquely high in omega-9 fatty acid and that means it sinks much deeper into the skin than other oils. The result is more intense, longer-lasting moisture. A 2002 study found that marula oil enhanced penetration more than synthetic penetration enhancers!

Another neat fact is that it is a highly stable oil so you don’t need to worry about it going bad for quite sometime.  In fact, it’s 10x more stable than olive oil.  

It also is vitamin C rich as well as E.

Moringa Oil

I’ve been hearing of moringa oil for quite some time and have been wanting to see what all the hype was about.  What I’ve learned is that this oil contains a plant hormone called cytokinin that helps cellular growth as well as protects skin cells.  

This oil also contains a good amount of vitamin C which we know helps boost collagen.  

It has a high concentration of behenic acid which has been known to be an anti aging tool due to it’s powerful conditioning properties!  

It is also high in vitamins A and E.

Mango Butter

We typically stick to cocoa and shea butter but I wanted to try mango butter because it apparently absorbs into the skin “shockingly fast”.  This is a plus since butters tend to be greasy.  

This butter is also non-comedogenic so it is safe for oilier skin types since it won’t clog pores!  

It’s high in vitamin A and C which we know are both beneficial when it comes to keeping the skin looking youthful.

It also has been known to be helpful in repairing the skin especially cracked heels.

Helichrysum Essential Oil

Helichrysum is one of those very expensive essential oils that should be used very sparingly because of it’s price point.  It comes with an impressive reputation.  

What I’m after is an oil that can help with sun spots and this might be it. It is one of the few essential oils that contain “diketones,” which can help reduce the appearance of age spots and discoloration.

Helichrysum is a very gentle oil so all skin types can use it.  

It has been known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture.

Helichrysum also has a reputation to reduce the appearance of scars.  I added it to my belly butter with C-section scars in mind.

Sandalwood Roll On

I went with the roll on version because it’s much much more affordable.  I’ve been very curious about sandalwood but not really for skin benefits.  

Sandalwood is known for it’s scent. It has been described as warm, resinous, sweet, balsamic, slightly bitter and woodsy.  

Sandalwood has aphrodisiac powers.  It is also grounding, calming and helps with mental clarity.  I figured a roll on might be the perfect introduction to this promising oil!

    An anti aging moisturizing face cream would be nice.
    Also, Can the Helichrysum oil be applied directly to sun spots?

      Becky-I don’t do many face creams any more because they are so full of water but I’ll look into it. I have heard that helichrysum might be the magic ingredient for sun spots! I’m excited to get going with it!
