Meadowfoam is rich with rejuvenating properties and works as an incredibly effective emollient for dry skin. It hydrates as it helps soothe blotchiness.
Unlike many thicker oils, Meadowfoam is non-greasy and stable. It absorbs quickly, moisturizing the deepest layers of the skin. Packed with anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants, Meadowfoam can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Its hydrating properties also extend to hair, helping to give your locks a supple shine.
Carrier oils are 4 oz and come with a pump.
