BLUE LIGHT DEFENCE + HYDRATION

Blueberry ACTIVE OIL  is an antioxidant-rich active oil that shields the skin from blue light exposure. Rich in essential fatty acids and protective phytosterols, together with a standardised level of carotenoids, it protects against oxidative stress by neutralising free radicals and external pollutants. It’s also a natural source of pro-retinol; making it particularly ideal for both anti-ageing & blue light protection skincare.

BLUE LIGHT DEFENCE

It has been proven to absorb blue light, working as a natural shield against HEV exposure from the sun and digital devices. In an absorbance study, it was shown to absorb high energy visible light.

SOURCE OF PRO-RETINOL

Blueberry Active oil is a natural source of pro-retinol (vitamin A). Topical retinoids in general have a well-documented effect on skin health including visible improvements in fine wrinkles, skin smoothness and hyperpigmentation of photodamaged skin.

FREE RADICAL SCAVENGER

This eco-luxe oil supports barrier function and protects against oxidative stress; Carotenoids, phytosterols and EFAs work to provide a natural method of protection against free radical damage. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids also support normal skin function and appearance.

It is high in oleic acid too, which is known to permeate skin layers without disordering other fatty acids in the skin. It also acts as a permeability enhancer for other compounds present in plant oils.

SUMMARY

  • Made from upcycled blueberries; a by-product of the juicing industry
  • A powerful active ingredient for blue light defence, a source of pro-retinol & potent antioxidant
  • Standardised level of carotenoids (significantly higher than standard blueberry seed oil)
  • Ideal for face & body care formulations
  • Natural, plant-based, vegan and cruelty-free
  • No added nasties – just as nature intended

SKIN-LOVING HYDRATION

Blueberry active oil is high in linoleic acid. Linoleic-rich oils nourish and protect the skin without being too heavy, whilst offering a method of hydration.

An in vivo study was conducted using a base lotion containing 3% Blueberry Active oil. Skin hydration levels increased by over 25% after 2hrs.

PERMEABILITY ENHANCER

It is high in oleic acid too, which is known to permeate skin layers without disordering other fatty acids in the skin. It also acts as a permeability enhancer for other compounds present in plant oils.

BLUE LIGHT ABSORBANCE

It has been proven to absorb blue light, working as a natural shield against HEV exposure from the sun and digital devices. When compared against a control, Blueberry active oil demonstrated significant absorbance activity.
