Here are the science-backed benefits of all the organic ingredients in Greenfield Botanics Pure Radiance Serum.
Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
Aloe vera leaf juice is a superfood for your skin. It prevents aging, heals wounds, and reduces scarring. It also boosts the other ingredients in our serum by speeding up the absorption of nutrients into your skin (1).
Aloe vera leaf juice includes plant-based hormone precursors called sterols that stimulate collagen and hyaluronic acid production and reduce wrinkle depth in women over 40 (2).
Aloe vera leaf juice absorbs into human skin faster than water and provides a natural barrier that shields cells from toxins.
Naturally rich in vitamins A, C, D, E, and B12, aloe vera leaf juice has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties that relieve redness, irritation, and itchiness in humans and animals (3,4).
Organic Golden Jojoba Oil
Golden jojoba oil is a potent natural moisturizer highly compatible with your skin’s sebum composition.
Golden jojoba oil smooths skin, increases elasticity, and helps restore your skin’s natural shine (5,6). Jojoba oil is also effective in treating acne because it can dissolve skin sebum and prevents psoriasis by reducing skin peeling and flaking (7,8).
Jojoba oil is high in vitamin E and has antioxidant properties that can prevent aging (9).
Also called Indian Gooseberry, amla is an anti-aging, antioxidant super berry with a high concentration of vitamin C and polyphenols. It improves skin glow and helps delay the onset of wrinkles. Amla has anti-bacterial and astringent properties that help prevent infection and promote skin healing (10).
Organic Lavender Oil
Lavender oil has potent antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antianxiety properties (11). It can help reduce skin swelling and inflammation, giving irritated skin a chance to heal. Lavender oil can also help reverse hair loss when applied to the scalp (12).
Organic Carrot Seed Oil
Carrot seed oil helps prevent aging, clears your complexion, and increases skin firmness and elasticity. It also stimulates cell growth and helps rejuvenate dehydrated and damaged skin (13). Carrot seed oil is rich in beta-carotene (vitamin A) and vitamins B, C, D and E (14).
Organic Wild Oregano Oil
Oregano oil has numerous health benefits when taken externally and internally. It is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and soothes skin irritation, mainly due to the high concentration of the phenolic terpenoid carvacrol (15-17).
Organic Rose Geranium Oil
Rose geranium oil is anti-inflammatory, can improve circulation, and has antimicrobial properties (18-20). It helps heal wounds, minimize scar tissue, and improve skin elasticity (21-23).
Organic Palmarosa Oil
Palmarosa oil contains a high concentration of geraniol and has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and potential anti-tumor properties and helps encourage wound healing (24-26).
Organic Turmeric Oil
Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant useful to treating a variety of inflammatory skin disorders (27). It increases skin turnover and can improve skin’s natural glow. It is antimicrobial, helps heal wounds, prevents acne, and has anti-aging properties (28).
Organic Juniper Berry Oil
Juniper berry oil helps to cleanse the skin, clean pores, and treat infections such as acne. It has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and can treat cellulite by reducing the amount of subcutaneous fat in adipose tissue (29).
Organic Lemon Oil
Lemon oil has cleansing, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties (30). It can increase skin glow and clarify skin blemishes, and strengthens the effect of the other ingredients by helping vitamins and nutrients absorb through the skin more easily (31-32).
Organic Patchouli Oil
Patchouli oil helps stimulate new skin cell growth, prevents the formation of scar tissue, and is anti-inflammatory. It is also a potent astringent, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and analgesic properties (33).
