INGREDIENTS 

*organic helianthus annus seed oil (sunflower), isopropyl myristate, peg-4 dilaurate, *organic calendula officinalis flower extract, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), vitis vinifera seed oil (grape), *organic simmondsia chinensis seed oil (jojoba), borago officinalis seed oil, honey, *organic carthamus tinctorius seed oil (safflower), *organic olea europaea fruit oil (olive), fragrance (parfum)

Each ingredient was researched on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database (EWG.org). Peg-4 dilaurate posed the only possible problem, as it can be an allergen to the skin or nose http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ingredient/721709/PEG-4_LAURATE/. All other ingredients were considered safe and healthy for use in personal care products.

MY REVIEW

I am not pregnant, nor do I intend to be, but I noticed a new trend surfacing: body oils being used in leu of lotion. Since the consistency of the Elasticity Oil is greasy, I did not want to directly put this on my skin, so I added a few drops to each pump/squirt of lotion before I applied it to my skin. The smell is pleasant and not overpowering, it smells fresh, clean, and has a slight after note of powder. After I was done rubbing it into my skin, my skin was slightly oily, but very soft and moisturized. I recommend using this oil before bed so that it gets a chance to fully absorb into skin overnight. The next day my skin still felt smooth and hydrated. I am definitely a fan of body oils now, and find that when combined with lotion, you get the best of both worlds! Body oil moisturizes skin better than lotion alone, and when mixed with lotion, your skin is not left overly greasy.

PROS

  • Adds more moisture to skin than lotion alone
  • Left skin feeling and smelling clean
  • Safe and organic ingredients
  • Vegan

CONS

  • Takes a while to absorb into skin

I would absolutely recommend this product to any women who are pregnant to help reduce their risk of stretch marks, or to simply anyone who needs added moisture in their daily routine!
