How Carrot Nutritive Day Creme Works
This lightweight day cream is chock full of natural ingredients like carrot seed oil, which is believed to naturally stimulate skin cell turnover. That's combined with beta-carotene to nourish skin, avocado and almond oils to moisturize and aloe vera to soothe and hydrate. The formula is especially beneficial to sun-drenched skin.
Carrot Seed Oil: Daucus carota sativa. This thin, yellow oil distilled from ground seeds is rich in Beta-Carotene and is valued for its soothing, relaxing properties. It is believed to stimulate cell renewal as well as the sweat and sebaceous glands. It is beneficial to mature or dry skin, helping to deter or reduce wrinkles. It also protects skin exposed to weather extremes. The oil has a heavy, woodsy, earthy, fruity scent.
Don't Just See Better, Look Better With Carrots
Carrot seed oil is the essential oil extracted from the seed of wild carrots. The oil is steam distilled from the dried seeds and is yellow or amber-colored with a woody, earthy, sweet smell. The essential oil is thought to be regenerative, cleansing and rejuvenating, as well as act as a powerful detoxifier and liver booster.
In skin care products, carrot seed oil is used to rejuvenate mature sun-damaged skin because it is thought to help to stimulate skin cell renewal. As skin gets older, skin cell turnover slows down considerably, making skin look dull and accentuating fine lines and wrinkles. By helping to regulate this turnover cycle, carrot seed oil helps skin not only to look brighter and smoother, like younger skin, it may help restore function so it behaves like younger skin. And that means the benefits last longer.
