Orchid Oil

Orchid Oil helps to retain moisture in the skin and is excellent at protecting the skin from the harsh environment. It is extracted from the orchid flower (Orchidaceae). Orchid oil is moisturizing, anti-aging and nutrient-rich.

Benefits of Orchid Oil for Skin:

  • Moisturizing and protective. Orchid oil nourishes the skin while replenishing the moisture it needs to stay healthy and supple. This oil also contains protective properties that help your skin thrive in harsh environments, for instance during excessive sunlight exposure.
  • Anti-aging. In addition to moisturizing the skin, plant-based compounds in orchid oil stimulate collagen production. The result is skin that’s healthier, firmer and well nourished.
  • Nutrient-rich. Orchid oil contains nutrients like magnesium, calcium and zinc which all provide important benefits for the skin. For instance, magnesium stabilizes hormones and improves the general function of skin cells which makes it perfect for reducing skin disorders like acne. Calcium regulates the production of sebum, the oily secretions of the skin, ensuring your skin has the right balance of oils. Zinc, on the other hand, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it a powerful mineral for fighting acne. It also treats acne scars and reduces inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and melasma.
