100% natural facial oil
An extraordinary oil, light and easily absorbed, yet rich and deeply nourishing. This oil is host to a broad range of fatty acids that really boost skin's lipid content, helping maintain good skin barrier and helping the skin retain moisture. Rosehip oil and borage oil contain large amounts of linoleic fatty acid (an essential fatty acid that your body cannot make itself). They also contain GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) which is normally made in the body from linoleic acid but some people with difficult skin do not have the enzyme needed for this to be made and therefore their skin barrier has less integrity.
These fatty acids are essential for good skin barrier, but are not sun-stable, they will oxidise in the sun and create free radicals. Lyonsleaf has created this oil specifically for use at night to complement our Beauty Balm which contains high levels of sun-stable tropical oils and is great for daytime use. We recommend using this oil in the evening after oil cleansing. It can be used daily, or a few times a week as required.
This facial oil also contains Lyonsleaf's home-grown soothing Calendula extract, but the star of the show is the Marshmallow extract - a very potent dose of it (Marshmallow macerated oil makes up a whopping 50% of this product). Marshmallow has acquired a reputation as a skin saviour an anti-ager and rejuvenator, it is known for improving a cells ability to hold moisture, plumping skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
But we love marshmallow because it softens and revives skin in need of TLC. We made this as a facial oil, but try it on feet, elbows or hands damaged by water or roughened by gardening, its ability to soften and repair is remarkable.
Lyonsleaf has scented this oil with a light woody floral scent only from essential oils and rose flower extract, but there is also an unscented version for those who cannot withstand allergens in essential

Will my skin react to Lyonsleaf Products
Our products are all 100% natural and free from all artificial chemicals. Because they are water free we can even avoid antimicrobial preservatives and emulsifiers. For this reason it is very unusual for anyone to react to our products at all. However some people are sensitive to essential oils, so if you are super-sensitive please choose unfragranced product options. Even less common, it is possible to be allergic to calendula and other herbs, so it is always important to do a patch test. In the unlikely event that you do have an adverse reaction, you can return your product for a full refund. We also sell samples of most products so you can try before you invest in a big pot.
Why is the pot so small?
Lyonsleaf products are water free and contain only the finest, plant oils, butters natural waxes and mineral ingredients. Most high Street products are up to 80% water, which means you need to apply them much more liberally and frequently. You will find you only need to use Lyonsleaf products very sparingly to achive good hydration that lasts all day. Products that are rich in soothing herbs can be used more frequently to achieve the best calming effect, but they still only need to be used sparingly. So these little pots go a long way, using less packaging and less transportation resources.
Are Lyonsleaf products vegan?
Much of the Lyonsleaf range is vegan, but we do use organic beeswax in some products. When it came to choosing a suitable wax, we decided it would be better for the environment to choose a farming method that promotes pollinators rather than a vegetable mono-crop that causes deforestation and loss of habitat. We only use organic beeswax as organic farming standards require farmers to have high welfare standards for Bees.
