Rich in natural Vitamin A actives with collagen stimulating, skin firming and antioxidant properties. An intense infusion of cold-pressed, organic Bakuchiol and Broccoli Seed plant extracts all utilise a form of Vitamin A that helps the skin renew itself faster and improve the elasticity of the skin. Bakuchiol also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties which mean it's helpful with active blemishes, whilst its retinoid-like action helps to unclog pores.

How to use

Place 3- 5 drops of oil into your palms and warm together. Gently press into your face and neck after cleansing and serums in the evening as the last step of your skincare routine. Can also be used on alternate nights when using Vitamin Sea Luminosity Night Oil.

Unlike retinol, which makes the skin photosensitive, Photosynthesis can also be used in the morning and throughout the day safely.

Free from fragrance and essential oils. Naturally smells very fresh.

30ml Made in Australia

Key Ingredients

BAKUCHIOL: RESTORE FIRMNESS | RETINOL ALTERNATIVE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

Studies have shown that Bakuchiol extract helps prevent fine lines and helps with pigmentation, elasticity, and firmness. It works through the same receptors that retinol uses, which is why it is known as a natural retinol alternative.  In a 2019 study, no difference was found between retinol and Bakuchiol in treating wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. 

COLD- PRESSED BROCCOLI SEED: VITAMIN A | IMPROVE ELASTICITY 

Like the retinol form of Vitamin A Broccoli seed oil fights free radical damage and promotes smooth, youthful-looking skin, but without the risk of irritation that some retinols carry. The oil is also rich in vitamin E—a natural component of your skin that soothes and protects against environmental exposure.

CACAY NUT OIL: VITAMIN A & E | VITAMIN F | IMPROVE SKIN TEXTURE 

Cacay Nut oil is highly rich in a perfect combination of vitamins and fatty acids that will set to work regenerating your skin thereby reducing fine lines, blemishes and loss of firmness. Cacay is also rich in Vitamin F (a combination of Linoleic acid (LA) and Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA). When used in skincare it retains moisture, whilst also being hydrating and assists in protecting the skin’s barrier, combating dryness and dullness of the skin.
