How Balancing Facial Oil was Developed
To develop the moisturiser, Jasmine wanted to use some plant oils. However, being science-trained, she doesn’t know a lot about natural ingredients. The high performance cosmeceutical ingredients ingredients usually have the scientific papers and data to back up the claims. Jasmine then went on to complete a diploma in organic skincare formulation, just so that she has more in depth knowledge of natural ingredients.
Pure oil is not quite suitable for Jasmine’s oily skin in humid climate but Jasmine had to test the different oil blends on herself to see if she breaks out. She found an oil blend that didn’t break her out and then used this blend of oil to formulate Barrier Booster Moisturiser.
There was no intention of launching a facial oil until some testers of Barrier Booster Moisturiser feedback that they needed a richer moisturiser. Jasmine sent them samples of the pure oil blend and asked them to mix 1 to 2 drops of oil with Barrier Booster Moisturiser and apply. Every tester found their own sweet spot. Hence, Balancing Facial Oil is born.

Cold-pressed Grape Seed Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil – Antioxidants-rich, High in Linoleic acid and low in Oleic acid. Studies have found that breakout-prone skin is low in Linoleic acid and high in Oleic acid, hence these oils assist in balancing breakout-prone skin sebum profile to a more normal sebum profile.
Cold-pressed Jojoba Oil – The antioxidants packed oil is the most similar to our natural skin sebum profile. Moisturises without tipping the skin sebum profile.
Squalane derived from Sugarcane – Naturally found in our skin sebum, Squalane helps to moisturise and balance break-out prone skin.
Natural Tocopherol a.k.a Vitamin E – Moisturising and Soothing, a powerful antioxidant that helps to fight against free radicals.

Q1. Do I still need to use Barrier Booster Moisturiser when I’m already using Balancing Facial Oil?
A1. Barrier Booster Moisturiser has more than just the oils in Balancing Facial Oil. It also has ceramides and 4 plant extracts that help strengthen skin barrier and moisturise. We do highly recommend that you layer on pure oil after applying moisturiser.
Q2. Do I still need to use Hydrating Serum?
A2. Yes. We highly recommend that you use hydrating serum as hydrating serum adds water and holds water in your skin. 64% of skin is water, so hydration is absolutely necessary. Barrier Booster Moisturiser and Balancing Facial Oil serves to add oil and lock in the hydration.
