Your skin is made up of both oil and water. This means that having both oil and water in your skincare routine is crucial, and oils play an important role in keeping your skin quenched. Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid is an incredibly concentrated, luxury facial oil made with an extremely balanced reservoir of Omega 3, 6 and 9. It absorbs like a serum and nourishes like a cream, banishing visible signs of aging and replenishing moisture-depleted skin. Formulated with a delicate blend of Camelina Oil, Japanese Yuzu and Horse Chestnut, this powerhouse oil brightens and balances skin - making it the perfect finishing touch to any routine.
Q: Where does your Camelina Oil come from?
A: Our Camelina Oil is harvested from the golden fields of Western Canada. While the quality and aroma of Camelina can differ from farm to farm, we have specially chosen ones with a pleasing nutty and fruity aroma.
Q: What makes Camelina Oil different from other oils?
A: Compared to other oils, Camelina Oil has an extremely balanced omega fatty acid profile of Omega 3, 6 and 9. This allows it to properly replenish skin without disrupting the natural balance of fatty acids in your skin. Camelina is also one of the most environmentally-friendly crops to cultivate, and possesses a light and silky feel that makes it the ideal beauty oil.
Q: What are omega fatty acids and why are they so important for skin?
A: Think of the outer layer of your skin as a brick wall, with your skin cells being bricks and the mortar being a mixture of ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids. Omega fatty acids are one of the essential building blocks of skin and work by repairing cracks in your skin surface. This allows your skin to better retain hydration and stay supple. Omega fatty acids can also help to protect your skin from external damage. By holding your skin cells together, they are able to create a safety barrier that keeps infections, acne and pollution at bay. Regardless of age, skin type or gender, omega fatty acids are one of the best choices when it comes to maintaining the overall health of your skin.
Q: Is Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid really natural?
A: Yes, our luxury blend is completely natural and our Camelina Oil is 100% cold pressed.
Q: What is cold pressing?
A: Cold pressing is a superior form of extraction that involves no heat whatsoever. This allows it to preserve its nutrients and in the case of Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid, ensures that the balance of omega fatty acids in our formula is retained from farm to face. Moreover, cold pressing also means that no organic solvent is used. This means that the eventual product is chemically contaminant-free, resulting in a much purer plant oil base.
Q: What temperature is used for cold pressing?
A: One of the most popular misconceptions about cold pressing is that it is done at temperatures where humans feel cold. This is not actually the case. Since we are working with oils and fatty acids, the term cold pressed actually refers to the temperature whereby these chemicals are not destroyed. For an oil to be considered cold pressed, it cannot exceed 49°C or 120°F. Since Camelina is a soft shell seed, it is typically extracted at temperatures well below that. Non cold pressed Camelina Oil tend to pale in comparison to cold pressed Camelina Oil when it comes to flavour, colour, nutrients and aroma.
Q: I have oily / combination skin. Can I still use Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid?
A: Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid contains an extremely balanced reservoir of omegas which makes it a good choice for those with combination, oily and blemish-prone skin. Compared to most facial oils, Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid is on the lighter side of the spectrum. However, those with excessively oily skin may still find it a little “too much”. If that is the case, we suggest replacing your night cream or moisturiser with Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid first. Once you feel that your skin has achieved a certain level of balance (no breakouts, oil production is controlled and not excessive, skin is hydrated and bouncy), you can reintroduce your moisturiser back into your routine.
Q: How do you apply Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid?
A: When it comes to applying facial oils, less is more. One of the biggest secrets when it comes to applying facial oils is to blend and massage. Apply 2-3 drops of oil and rub it between the palm of your hands. You can also spritz on a hydrating facial mist to help the oil blend better. Next, pat it gently onto your face, before going into a massage. Massaging oils into the skin helps it to penetrate deeper and also increases your skin circulation, helping you look more youthful and radiant.
Q: Which part of my skincare routine should Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid be used?
A: Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid is the perfect finishing touch to any routine, and should only be applied as the last step of your skincare routine. At night, it is usually applied after your moisturiser (or after your serum if you are not using a moisturiser). In the day, it is usually applied as the last step of your skincare routine, before sunscreen and makeup.
Q: Can I use Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid during the day?
A: Yes, Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid can be used during the day, before sunscreen and makeup. To help it absorb better, you can also spritz a hydrating mist before applying our facial oil. This will also help to prep your skin for makeup.
Q: Can I skip moisturiser if I am using Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid?
Q: I am interested in brightening my skin. Could you suggest a simple routine?
A: Sure! First, cleanse your face with our gentle brightening cleanser Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops and follow with our popular brightening serum Sun Eraser Glow Drops. Then, apply 2-3 drops of Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid and rub it between the palm of your hands. Pat it gently onto your face, before going into a massage. You can also use our chlorophyll-rich mask Green Pulp Paste Masque up to thrice a week for an instant, natural glow.
Q: Are there any other ways to use Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid?
A: One of our favourite ways of using Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid is on the back of our hands. Hands are one of the biggest giveaways of aging and constant hand washing and sanitising can accelerate hand aging. Apply one drop of omega oil on the back of each of your hands to keep it looking smooth and youthful. If you are heading out, a few drops of Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid on your legs can give it a glowy 3D effect. This luxurious multi-purpose oil can also be used to nourish your cuticles and ends of your hair, as a post-wash treatment.
Q: How should I store my Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid?
A: As with most skincare products, Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid is best stored in a cool and shaded area, out of direct sunlight.
Q: How long can one bottle last?
A: Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid contains 600 drops, or 30ml, of fluid. If you use 5 drops a day (assuming you use 3 drops at night and 2 drops in the day) and apply it everyday, one bottle of Camelina Omega-C Brightening Fluid should last you about 120 days, or 4 months.
