Chokeberry Oil is recommended for sensitive skin with a tendency to rosacea, vascular, mature, mixed skin (oily in the T-zone and dry on the cheeks), normal. It has good soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties, so it is perfect for skin care cosmetics after cosmetic treatments with acids. Chokeberry oil protects the skin from exposure to free radicals and has good antioxidant properties. Restores the hydrolipidic balance of the skin, protects it from dehydration. Chokeberry oil soothes irritated scalp so that it can be added to shampoos, rubbers and conditioners for the scalp.
Chokeberry is a natural, exceptionally strong antioxidant – it absorbs and neutralizes free radicals, while strengthening the body’s capillaries and blood vessels. It is one of the strongest UV absorbers, responsible for skin aging. The properties of chokeberry prevent excessive formation of free radicals, which cause, among other things, collagen degradation in the body.
Active ingredients: linoleic acid – Omega-6 (39%), alpha-linolenic acid – Omega-3 (8%), oleic acid (31%), phytosterols, vitamin E, phospholipids.
Alpha-linolenic acid, by reducing the effects of oxidative stress, has an anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory effect, increases resistance to infections and stimulates skin regeneration.
Linoleic acid, present in large quantities in chokeberry seed oil, is one of the components of the natural lipid sheath produced by the epidermis. It regulates the correct development and adhesion of corneocytes in sebaceous gland ducts. Its deficiency, common in people with acne, leads to excessive keratinization of the sebaceous gland estuaries, which promotes the formation of comedones and inflammatory changes.
Phytosterols and phospholipids reduce transepidermal water loss, improving skin hydration, and tocopherols determine its anti-inflammatory, normalizing and soothing properties.
