Poppy seed oil
Poppy seed oil has excellent skin barrier recovery properties, and is especially suitable for sensitive skin. The oil is obtained by lightly pressing the seeds of the White Poppy.
Poppy seed oil is a sustainably sourced virgin oil containing sterols and Vitamin E, and with a high linoleic acid content. The oil we use is a 100% UK product, fully traceable and with a sustainable supply chain: the oil is a pharmaceutical byproduct. Our chemist Jaana has actually met the guy living next to the field of poppies from which the oil is harvested by a 5th generation family farm.
We use poppy seed oil as an emollient in our Face Cream, a light gel-cream that gives your skin both a drink and a hug. Natural humectants glycerin and sodium PCA quench thirsty skin and colloidal oatmeal prevents water loss, while canola, oat and poppy seed oils nourish for skin that feels hydrated and soft.
