So, what exactly is Meadowfoam, and where did its strange (but intriguing) name come from? The oil is extracted from the Limnanthes Alba herbal flowering plant that is native tothe Northwest Coast of the United States, as well as Vancouver, British Columbia. The name “Meadowfoam” comes from the plant’s appearance: white clusters of flowers dot the surface of the plant similar to the way that foam rises above water. Hmmmm. Interesting. But most important is theway that Meadowfoam Oil takes care of your skin.
DETOX SKIN THERAPY
We use Meadowfoam in our TEA+C™ Green Tea + Vitamin C Antioxidant Cleanser for its ideal antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying qualities. Meadowfoam oil is excellent for unclogging pores and removing excess oil and stubborn blackheads and whiteheads, while combatting acne and blemishes. Natural ingredients in the oil are adept at deeply penetrating pores and using its antibacterial properties to clear out skin grime, while maintaining your skin’s natural moisture barrier, leaving your face feeling smooth and fresh—not tight and dry like some antioxidant cleansers can.
Meadowfoam oil is also a natural anti-inflammatory that can help to reduce redness around problem areas. Its powerful moisturizing properties give it the added ability to soothe and hydrate irritated skin and reduce the appearance of redness. This makes it perfect for acne, but also a great choice for those who suffer from eczema or other forms of chronic skin irritations.
One of the primary triggers of acne is the body’s natural production of sebum, which is secreted from the sebaceous gland and can cause increases in oily or dry skin. The eicosenoic acid in Meadowseed oil is a rare fatty acid that can be used to help balance the body’s production of sebum and reduce oily or dry skin. Thus, Meadowseed oil is a natural response to curbing the acne curse, and its chemical makeup makes it a highly effective choice.
Meadowfoam….There! Now you can add another hitch to your organic skincare acumen!
