Red Carrot Carrier Oil offers extraordinary skin protection and conditioning benefits and is an intensely hydrating massage oil often referred to in the beauty world as "liquid gold". Its humble origins belie it's powerfully therapeutic properties which make it the King of all carrier oils.
Carrot Oil contains high levels of carotenoids which are a class of easily assimilated antioxidants, which are present in a wide range of fruits and vegetables but most abundant in carrots. Antioxidants protect human cells from harmful free-radical attack. Free-radicals are produced by a wide range of environmental pollutants, including UVR. If left unchecked by antioxidants, free-radicals damage both the structure and function of cell membranes, resulting in premature aging, cancer and an array of degenerative diseases. The antioxidant rich Carrot Oil is therefore useful in maintaining a youthful appearance and texture to the skin. It is also beneficial for dry, itchy and inflamed skin.
Professional Tip: The experts at Base Formula recommend it to be blended at 10% dilution with Apricot or Almond oil or on its own for very sensitive, ultra-dry or sun damaged skin. Caution: used on its own it can add a slightly reddy/golden tone to the skin so it is not suitable for those who prefer a very pale complexion.
