Pregnancy, diet, stress, lack of sleep or monthly cycles can contribute to skin hormonal imbalance and could affect the health of our skin. Symptoms of skin imbalance include over-production of sebum underneath the skin yet the skin surface is dry tight and flaky. This results in inflammation, cystic acne along the jawline, cheeks, and chin as well as dull skin that no amount of concealer can hide.
A for Apothecary’s face oil is a botanical blend of organic cold-pressed plant oils – Oat Lipid E, Rosehip seed, Sea Buckthorn, Calendula and Rosemary. This fast-absorbing face oil nourishes your skin with essential antioxidants, vitamins, omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, and ceramides, leaving you with healthy glowing skin.
How the Rose Glow Elixir face oil works:
Jojoba oil is very similar to human sebum. This allows our skin to think it has produced enough sebum and hence balances oil production, without promoting acne or other skin problems. Jojoba also naturally deters microbes, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria. It deeply penetrates to soothe and soften while providing an excellent moisturizing effect and adding a healthy glow, while being very gentle for those with sensitive skin.
This Ecocert certified organic oat oil won the 2015 BSB Innovation award in the category ‘most functional product’. It is a superior, rich, natural oat oil with a unique lipid profile that balances the skin’s oil levels.
Moisture regulating ceramides present in this oil form a protective, waterproof layer that prevents moisture loss. Ceramide production decreases as we age, leading to dryness and wrinkles. The high concentrations of vitamin E and linoleic acid in oat oil counteracts this process externally by restoring the skin’s moisture balance. It soothes and heals the skin, ensuring fewer spots, blackheads, and small scars.
It is hypoallergenic and gluten-free.
Sea Buckthorn Extract
Sometimes referred to as the holy fruit of the Himalayas, sea buckthorn offers a multitude of benefits for your skin. Wonderful for those with dry or mature skin, Sea Buckthorn Oil is rich in Vitamin E which deeply hydrates and plumps, helping the skin to maintain optimum moisture.Its host of vitamins and carotenoids also makes Sea Buckthorn Oil a protective and preventative ingredient.
Protecting the skin against environmental aggressors, pollution and free radicals, sea buckthorn work to slow down skin sagging and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles to prevent premature skin ageing.
Rosehip Seed Extract
Used by ancient Egyptians, Mayans, and Native Americans for its skin-clearing and general healing properties, Rosehip Seed Oil remains just as popular today as it was centuries ago. Containing beta-carotene and retinoic acid, this versatile oil keeps skin soft and supple, while reducing the appearance of blemishes and scars.
Calendula oil aids in stimulating collagen production which will make your skin more flexible and resilient to environment aggressors. Calendula oil also increases the hydration within the skin, which makes your skin more glowy and fresh.
Rosemary is known to reduce the inflammation and improves skin circulation to give you glowing skin. Additionally, it fights against sun damage and free radical damage and tightens your skin to combat signs of aging.
Use on clean face. After your toner/face mist, warm up 3-5 drops of oil in the palms of your hands. Gently massage the oils onto your face and neck. Can be used day and night. For day time, apply before your sunscreen.

A for Apothecary‘s mission is to make products that mothers can trust, by using clean ingredients and being honest with what they put into their skincare. Each jar overflows of 100% pure love, harvested from mother nature.
The founder of A for Apothecary has always been battling sensitive, eczema prone skin for herself and her children. In the search for a natural non-toxic cream, she discovered that labels with words like ‘organic’ or ‘natural’ are often misleading. An in-depth look at the ingredients list and you can find chemicals lurking in there that causes skin sensitivity or that in entering our blood steam, could potentially disrupt hormones or cause cancer in the long run. It was frustrating to find a natural, honest and affordable skincare for both adults and children.
A For Apothecary was thus created as a brand that focuses on effective, clean formulations meant for sensitive skin. They use only ingredients that work in synergy with a clean lifestyle & diet for healthy glowing skin.
