Jojoba is a liquid wax which is commonly referred to as an oil.  Jojoba's chemical composition is very close to sebum, a natural fluid produced by human skin. Sebum acts as the skin's natural protective barrier. It also aids in regulating moisture. It contains a significant amount of myristic acid, a fatty acid that is known to act as an anti-inflammatory. Jojoba contains some of the longest-chain fatty acids of any of the carriers on our list.  Jojoba absorbs better than most other carriers.

Pomegranate seed oil is powerfully antioxidant and anti-inflammatory; and it is known to significantly boost epidermal cellular regeneration. This makes pomegranate seed oil one of the absolute best oils for anti-aging blends, as well as those meant to heal damaged skin.

Pomegranate seed oil contains a high concentration of ellagic acid.  Ellagic acid is a polyphenolic compound that is found in red raspberries and other fruits. It is an antioxidant that has been shown to help prevent skin cancer as well as preventing UV damage and wrinkle formation. Ellagic acid also lightens and brightens the skin.  Pomegranate seed oil also contains a rare form of conjugated linolenic fatty acid (an omega 5 fatty acid) – known as Punicic acid.  Punicic acid reduces skin inflammation and aids in skin repair. It also hydrates our skin and prevents moisture loss. This fatty acid protects the skin from sun damage and fends off free radicals. Pomegranate seed oil is close to 70% punicic acid. 

Borage seed oil has one of the highest amounts of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) of all seed oils. Because GLA is converted to precursors of a variety of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, it may have potential as an anti-inflammatory in cosmetic formulations.

Lavender essential oil is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities.  It is often used to soothe occasional skin irritation, help skin recover quickly, improve eczema and acne, as well as sleep induction.

Apply last step in the evening just before bed, after light moisturizer and tretinoin.
