PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE BOTANICAL OILS
A combination of the most antifungal, antibacterial, skin-compatible oils such as squalane olive oil, meadowfoam and evening primrose oils. Highly anti-inflammatory and excellent in treating eczema and dermatitis. This unique combination acts as an environmental barrier to enable moisture retention and epidermal protection
 BODY OIL
For skin to look fresh, plump and healthy, it requires two types of hydration: water and lipids. This is why you should always apply moisturiser to damp skin. (This is a great product to keep on hand in the shower. ) Applying Activator 7 while skin is still wet creates a hydrolipidic film, trapping in moisture for double-duty nourishment and intense hydration, leaving skin soft, smooth and luminous.
Applying Activator 7 to wet skin also prevents any greasy, oily residue that can come from applying oil to dry skin.
 MAKEUP REMOVER
Oil dissolves oil, making Activator 7 a highly effective makeup remover. Simply wipe with a cotton pad to remove makeup and residue without stripping or altering the skin’s pH. This will leave skin feeling fresh, soft and nourished.
 HAIR SERUM
To restore and nourish hair, apply 2—3 drops to the palm of your hand and then work through wet mid-lengths and ends to lock in vital moisture.
 FACIAL SERUM
While we sleep, the body undergoes cleansing and repair. This time allows cells to utilise the active ingredients in Activator 7. For a potent night serum, apply a few small drops and press into skin. You can also a couple of small drops to your night-time moisturiser to boost potency and night-time repair.
 SHAVE OIL
Activator 7 protects and hydrates the skin barrier while providing a sleek, close shave.
 DERMATITIS + ECZEMA TREATMENT
Bathing is one of the most important treatments for eczema and dermatitis as water hydrates and softens the stratum corneum [the top layer of skin], allowing your moisturiser to be more thoroughly absorbed. Bathing also removes allergens, irritants and dry, built-up skin cells.
Pregnancy + Safety
All of the data around vitamin A and pregnancy is based around oral consumption. Vitamin A applied topically is locked in the skin, and cannot be absorbed into the blood stream and is therefore safe for use during pregnancy. We always recommend to begin your daily applications from the second trimester onwards should you have any concerns.
It is recommended when using a vitamin A product to apply sunscreen before sun exposure.
