THE BEST BERRY OILS FOR HEALTHY & VIBRANT SKIN

October 15, 2018 by Renee Tavoularis

THE BEST BERRY OILS FOR HEALTHY & VIBRANT SKIN

Berries aren’t simply good to eat — these deep-colored fruit offer some serious health and beauty benefits. In fact, berries have some of the highest polyphenol levels among all other fruit. We know that polyphenols, or antioxidants, are our skin’s best friends: they fight oxidative stress that causes premature aging, and they protect our skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.

Find out how the natural oils found in berry seeds can help you achieve healthier, more vibrant skin.

WHAT NUTRIENTS ARE IN BERRY OILS? 

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS

A blend of omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 essential fatty acids found in berry oils are significant for regulating the membrane of your skin cells. They are critical for the skin to effectively act as a protective barrier for the body. These fatty acids help hold in water and nutrients, so the skin stays moisturized, soft, and smooth. In addition to keeping important things in, these fatty acids also facilitate the release of wastes and toxins that are damaging to skin. Plus, omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in fighting inflammation in the body, which helps prevent premature aging.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Both the flesh and seeds of berries are rich in polyphenol antioxidants. In particular, the oils derived from berry seeds contain a potent mix of antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, C, and E that are all beneficial to skin health.

The form of Vitamin A derived from colorful foods like berries is beta carotene. Carotenoids support skin health by promoting cell regrowth and wound healing. They also help protect the skin from cancer.

Vitamin C is abundant in both the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. This critical ingredient is commonly found in anti-aging skincare products because it’s crucial to the development of collagen, which is necessary for the skin to stay firm and smooth. 

Another vitamin with antioxidant properties, Vitamin E is critical for protecting skin cells against damaging sun exposure. Vitamin E facilitates the absorption of harmful UV rays that lead to wrinkles and dark spots.

OUR FAVORITE BERRY SEED OILS

We love berry seed oils—especially the following choices that are great for skin health!

SEA BUCKTHORN BERRY OIL

This berry oil obtained from the sea buckthorn plant is a rich source of Omega 7 fatty acids. It also contains Vitamin A, B, C, D, E, F, K as well as phenols, carotenoids, and flavonoids. Sea buckthorn also contains phytosterols that help prevent the breakdown of collagen.

CRANBERRY SEED OIL

Another favorite, cranberry seed oil, offers an unmatched concentration of Vitamin E, which is vital for protecting skin from oxidative stress. This berry oil also provides a balanced blend of Omega 3 to 6 fatty acids. It also contains both lutein and zeaxanthin, which help defend skin cells from environmental stressors.

BLACKCURRANT SEED OIL

Derived from the blackcurrant, this potent oil is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid, which is significant for the maintenance of youthful, healthy skin and hair. The nutrient profile of blackcurrant seed oil also includes polyphenols that protect the skin against inflammation. 

SUPPLEMENTING WITH BERRY OILS

PLANTED IN BEAUTY’s Inside Out Skin Wellness Supplement is a vegan soft gel containing a potent blend of lipid-rich antioxidants, berry oils (including sea buckthorn, cranberry seed, and blackcurrant seed), and phytoceramides. These key ingredients are vital for renewing, protecting, and replenishing the skin’s barrier, so that you can experience naturally radiant skin.
