Prevent, rather than cure! Our Holistic Facial Oil has been developed for the younger individual that is looking to prevent Premature Ageing. Enriched with a triple- action brightening complex, renowned for its ability to stimulate and fortify, the zesty blend is formulated to detoxify, refresh and hydrate the skin.


Retinol can actually be harmful for your skin causing huge amounts of long term damage and ageing:

 The official line on retinol is “Retinol is a potent form of synthetic vitamin FDA ( food and drug authority) study indicate that retinoid ingredients may speed the development of skin tumours and lesions on sun-exposed skin.”  

Q: Why do so many beauty therapists, dermatologists and beauty journalists recommend it?.. And we don't? 

Let’s start with what Retinol does to your skin -When applied to your skin, it will prompt the skin cells to turn over and die rapidly, making way for the new cell growth underneath.  But by encouraging your skin to do this process you are interfering with the molecular biology of those cells and also removing the natural protective surface layer the skin produces which protects your skin cells, collagen, fibres & elastins.

Basically, the new skin you are exposing early through this speeded up process has not had enough time to build up its natural protection and that can mean you are more exposed and susceptible to Skin Cancer, Pigmentation Spots Premature Ageing & Wrinkles. 

 People who use such things actually end up with reactions, damaged skin, red blotchy often very sensitive skin. 

Q : is there an alternative or what's better without the damage

Natural oils work better at looking after your skin they stop the main source of skin damage and ageing and some even offer you a natural retinol effect without causing damage.

Apply 1 pump to damp skin. Massage in using small upward circular movements. The oil can be combined with the Blending Cream to lock in the Nutrients and matt the complexion as a perfectly prepped makeup base. If you are using a combination of the Night Cream, any of our Facial Oils or the Tightening Serum, these must all be used on separate evenings, using them all together is too much for your skin and it will not speed up the benefits.

Tip: If you have very dry skin, we suggest applying Facial Oil to wet skin 1-3 times a week. This traps in the water molecules to hydrate the skin. Our Facial Oils can also be used to remove make-up, even waterproof mascara. It will also condition and strengthen the eyelashes and combat fine lines around the eye area. Use sparingly on a cotton pad. Please ensure you patch test the product around your eyes before using it. 

Full Ingredients: Peach (Prunus Persica), Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis), Grapefruit (Citrus Paradisi), Orange (Citrus Sinensis), Patchouli (Pogostemon Cablin). Naturally occuring allergens: Limonene.

Active Unadulterated Ingredients

Peach oil 

A light texture that absorbs quickly without leaving a sticky film. It protects sensitive, dry and mature skin and can help to strengthen the skin's immune system. Peach kernel oil smooths and hydrates the skin, improves skin elasticity and leaves a soft and supple feel.

Orange Oil 

The natural properties are said to promote feelings of relaxation and overall wellness. Other benefits includes Anti-inflammatory, firming elastins and softens skin. 

We only use organically derived, unadulterated therapeutical botanical oils. These natural raw materials are so well protected and cared for to maintain all the nutritional goodness from the plant. At a molecular level these are highest quality natural ingredients available in the world. We never cheapen on quality or botanical raw materials!


atural Oils containing the most powerful, unadulterated Antioxidants will act as a carrier for the Natural Vitamins being applied to your skin, delivering them to the dermis to boost repair, Free Radical Protection and Anti-Ageing. 

Grapefruit is a refreshing tonic, aiding the protective film on the skin’s surface and assisting to banish imperfections, pigmentation and promote cell regeneration to reveal a more radiant looking complexion. Prevention, rather than cure.


The super active jojoba ingredient restores the skin to its natural 4-5 ph level. In hard water areas extra chemicals are added to soften the water but this can also reduce the skins Ph levels, causing severe dryness. This oil blend restores your levels to 4-5.

Are These Ingredients Safe?

  • Hyaluronic Acid 

No is the short answer! If you’re not using in a humid environment it can actually draw water/hydration out of your skin leaving it dryer and tighter than ever before It can be irritating, many products use a low molecular weight of HA to help it get into the skin, however, this low molecular weight has been shown in studies to be inflammatory for some skins, leading to redness, soreness and irritation. The production process that HA goes through to get to this molecular weight renders it a totally different substance to that which is found naturally in the body.

  • Vitamin C 

We love vitamin C in skincare as part of a natural organically derived formulation; it can brighten the skin and is an antioxidant that protects the skin, BUT most products on the market who use synthetic unnatural potencies so the answer is no: It can cause oxidisation for the skin - yes! The opposite of what you are told it does. Synthetic vitamin C can react very easily with other molecules, including oxygen, when this happens, it can lead to acne, collagen and elastin loss, inflammation and irritation

  • Retinols 

One word, No. They are not. In short, please don’t use them! They damage the skin, the skin barrier and can alter your molecular biology all for a short term gain with long term dangers Many of the studies showing benefits to retinol are flawed.

The Study of Molecular Geometry In Botanicals

Natural Elements works extensively in researching botanical ingredients with UK biotech universities – our recent 2021 study found vital organic oils are the most effective at penetrating the skin to reach cells, collagen, and skin fibres.

Our research at Birmingham universities testing & evaluation laboratory centre concluded our plant extract, vital oil and essential oil formulations have extremely high levels of skin benefits and age-defying properties, rendering our oil blends ideal for the anti-ageing segment.
