Evidently, everyone has morphed into a skin care fanatic overnight. Running to Sephora to get the latest trend in skin care, but how many actually know what's in it? How many times have you read the ingredients list and skipped past most of the words because you could not pronounce it like sesquichlorohydrate or pentachlorohydrex gly.

Empressence offers a high level of transparency about ingredients used because the formulations are clean. This is achieved through short ingredients lists that are easy for consumers to understand. Empressence cares about one trend and one trend only - the clean skin care trend.

Now you're saying to yourself "do I really need to use facial oils?" Well here's the thing, do you "need" it? Maybe not. Should you "want" it? Yes.

Empressence's facial oils are formulated with a blend of natural oils that work simultaneously to address skin care challenges like acne, aging, inflammation, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity. If that doesn't answer why you should want our facial oils then maybe we should be more transparent. Lets focus this conversation on Empressence's facial oil, MAGEC. We are sure these three additional reasons will sell you:

1. Lets start with the skin-loving ingredients.

MAGEC features olive squalane, passion fruit, camellia seed and sea buckthorn.

Olive squalane derives from natural olives and penetrates the skin quickly to offer enhanced elasticity leaving skin looking and feeling hydrated, smoother and softer. It even protects against environmental factors including UV radiation and pollution. Guess what? It does all of this without any grease or tackiness making it suitable for all skin types, including oily complexions.

Passion fruit or maracuja oil is rich in vitamins A, E, C, calcium and phosphorus. It also contains 72.6% linoleic acid meaning it is high in essential fatty acids making it a good moisturizer and valuable in treating dry aging skin. It also offers anti-inflammatory benefits for conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne.

4 Major Benefits of Maracuja Oil | 100% PURE

Camellia is a wild flower native to China and Japan, loaded with antioxidants. It protects the skin against the abuse of external environmental elements reducing the appearance of mature skin. What does that mean? You will have skin that looks revitalized and rejuvenated.

Sea buckthorn is a spiny shrub or tree with bright red or yellow berries native to Europe and Northern Asia. These berries are said to be the single highest vegetal source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids and essential amino acids, along with beta-carotene, which aids in the reduction in sebum.

2. It's sustainably sourced.

Part of being clean also means sourcing cruelty-free ingredients. All of MAGEC's ingredients have been certified by Fair Trade Sustainbility Alliance. This means that ingredients support agricultural sustainability and equitable working conditions.

3. Non-comedogenic ingredients.

We know we've all had that moment when we see a little stress bump and freak out. That's why we know having acne-prone skin is even more stressful. Acne is a result of pores being blocked by dead skin, bacteria and/or oil. Those with acne often believe that facial oils will worsen the condition. Well, we are here to say that is false! It's just a matter of finding the right facial oil. It is important that the facial oil you choose has non-comedogenic ingredients. That means no mineral, petroleum-based or synthetic oils. That leaves what? 100% plant-based oil, that's what! You will not find any heavy oils or oil fillers here and we are quite sure you can pronounce the ingredients on our list.

When it comes to self-care, keep your flesh in mind. Use clean, sustainably sourced products. With that we'll leave you with our mindful positive skin mantra.

I listen to my skin. I know my skin deserves only natural and quality products. Because I love my skin, I will provide what my skin deserves no matter what because I deserve self-love.
