Why We Love It
Borage Seed Oil is brilliant at making the skin’s protective barrier stronger and more resilient. It has a lovely light slip on the skin and is easily absorbed. It calms and nourishes, and helps tackle redness and roughness. It can also be helpful in soothing acne-troubled skin.
Which Votary Products You Can Find It In.
Borage Seed Oil is in three of the Votary Super Seed range; Super Seed Cleansing Oil, Super Seed Facial Oil and Super Seed Nutrient Cream. The Super Seed range is designed to feed sensitive skin, and to nurture it back to resilient, glowing health. When the skin’s mantle is fragile, it means it’s vulnerable to redness, soreness and dryness. Borage Oil works to repair and strengthen it. More hydration is retained and the mantle becomes a more effective barrier against pollution and everyday toxins. Skin feels de-sensitised, smoother, stronger and more supple.
In the Super Seed range, Borage Seed oil works to coax fragile skin back to smooth, glowing strength.
