Women around the world are feeling the difference with The Body Shop’s Oils of Life, an intensely revitalizing skincare range. An expert blend of three potent seed oils meld to create the daily life-infusing skincare range to revitalize skin, replenish nutrition, revive radiance and visibly reduce signs of ageing. The complete range is now available at The Body Shop outlets in Colombo.
A Body Shop team of skin experts formulated the Oils of Life range using three seed oils known for their intensely life-giving properties, sourced from three corners of the world. Black Cumin Seed Oil from the Egyptian Nile Valley is known for its high concentration of antioxidants; Camellia Seed Oil from the Evergreen Trees of China is naturally rich in nutritive oleic acids; and Rosehip Seed Oil from the Andes Foothills of Chile is bursting with Omega 3 and 6 oils. These seeds have been cold-pressed to yield their oils fully preserved and in the purest form, enriched with potent properties that ensure close affinity with skin.
“The Body Shop has always sourced ingredients from around the world and taken inspiration from traditional beauty rituals,” says Arnaud Jeanteur, General Manager, The Body Shop International. “When our team discovered the potency of these three seed oils from Egypt, Chile and China we decided to create a skincare range that would replenish nutrition, deeply revitalize the skin and provide visible radiance to women.”
Together, the Oils of Life range creates a morning and evening skincare routine that can transform tired and lifeless skin. When the product was tested on a large group of women, 84% agreed that the formula was intensely revitalizing and that it had a quick absorbent texture. A further 82% agreed that it replenished nutrition and delivered instantly soft skin.
The Intensely Revitalizing Essence Lotion is the first step to prepare the skin. This bi-phase formula (oil and water) style has been used by Asian women for years with great success; the lotion is lightweight and needs only a minute on the skin to activate, preparing it for the next step. Then, apply a few drops of the Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil; the three precious seed oils have been infused with a blend of seven other oils in this formula. These are essential oils-Lavendar, Rosemary Leaf, Geranium, Orange Peel, Lavandin, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile-that effortlessly melt on to the skin with a silky-soft and non-sticky finish, making for a highly sensorial experience. The creams are twofold; the Intensely Revitalizing Gel Cream is a lighter alternative with illuminating micro-pearls that leaves a fresh finish. The Intensely Revitalizing Cream with perfecting micro-pearls is an intense hydrating cream that absorbs quickly for a light and comfortable finish.
The Oils of Life range is available at The Body Shop flagship store on Bagatale Road and at Odel, Alexandra Place. Your purchase can make a difference-with Oils of Life, The Body Shop keeps its promise to Enrich, Not Exploit by planting one million seeds in Cerro Blanco, Ecuador to protect local biodiversity in partnership with the World Land Trust.
