PRODUCT DETAILS

Peach Oil is rich in vitamins A, E and essential fatty acids which promote cell regeneration whilst encouraging suppleness, repair and skin elasticity. Avocado which is the best protector from UVA is lavish emollient oil rich in vitamins A, B, D, E and fatty acids to hydrate, support and moisturise the epidermis. This combination of oils means you have huge antioxidant value at the highest levels of the skin (which is where the UVA protection happens) according to the research of Birmingham University, 

 

Unlike synthetic SPFs, this oil doesn't stop you from absorbing Vitamin D. Please note however that our oil only has limited resistance to UVB light (which causes sunburn to the surface) The key to protecting your skin is to make sure your skin doesn't burn, building sun exposure up over days will help the melanin rise naturally in your skin which will control the reflection of the light which in turn stop the skin burning naturally.

 

To stop you from getting burnt get regular shade and rest out of the direct sunlight. Now importantly in the shade or wearing a hat /clothes/ windows does not stop UVA damage (the main source of cell mutation so ageing and skin cancer) so continue to use the oil on the skin if out of direct sunlight or in a car.  


Science News - Did you know that Vitamin D deficiency is shown to raise COVID-19 ICU risk 20 fold? Being in the sun for just 15 mins gives you the best Vitamin D that your body can absorb. We are working with Birmingham University to show that with our oil on the skin, Vitamin D is more quickly absorbed.

 

Suitable for: All skin types.

Full Ingredients: Grapeseed (Vitis vinifera), Peach (Prunus persica, Avocado (Persea gratissima). Good to Know: Vegan, free from petrochemicals or steroids, Dermatologically tested


INSTRUCTION

For the first few days of your holiday, apply Synergistic Body Oil, regularly and stay in direct sunlight for only short periods of time ( ultra-sensitive 10 to 20 minutes and no peak times ie midday-3pm),.


Please note this is not a SPF, which reflects UVB (the ray that burns the skin surface).We recommend being in the shade during long periods of sun exposure or wear hats, clothing, and not being in direct sunlight longer than 4 hours. Get your vitamin D but in moderation! 


Re-apply after every swim after you’ve washed off the salt or chlorine. Listen to your skin, head out of the sun and cover up when your're feel a slight tingle in the skin (it means its had enough sun for 1 day). 


Tips: 


1) Use Soothing Body Lotion at the end of the day over the top of oil to leave a matt finish and lock in the beneficial ingredients.


I2) f you can’t be parted from your usual SPF you can minimise the damage caused by applying Synergistic Body Oil before you apply your SPF to protect your skin.


3) Using our Invigorating Body Wash at the end of the day will remove all chlorine chemicals and seawater from the skin.

Active Unadulterated Ingredients


Peach kernel 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.


Avocado


Skin Barrier support, rich in Omega Fatty Acids, antioxidants, UV protection. Used in our moisturiser to give a light, non-greasy cream that soothes redness and calms irritation and inflammation, rich in antioxidants to sooth irritated skin but also delivers powerful nutritional benefits.


Driven by years of Rosacea research, we formulate safer and healthier products for maximum hydration without irritation.



English Grapeseed


The biggest benefits of Grapeseed Oil come from the high source of Vitamin E and Omega-6 Fatty Acid content. The Vitamin E within Grapeseed Oil acts as a fat-soluble antioxidant which helps protect your cells from damaging Free Radicals that have been associated with Cancer, heart disease and other chronic illnesses. The Omega-6 Fatty Acids are known to create a powerful skin barrier against free radical damage and reduce inflammation within the skin.

Why Don't We Encourage Using a SPF?

It seems to have become FACT that if you want to protect your skin from premature ageing you must defend it with an SPF moisturiser? We were asked why Natural Elements, the best the UK has to offer in natural anti-ageing, doesn’t have any SPF ingredients in their products? Especially when we preach so much about prevention of premature ageing…


So, let’s break the science down:


You have UVB and UVA from the sun. UVB is the burn, UVA is the radiation emitted by the sun. SPF protects your skin from the burn, usually through reflective particles contained in the product that bounces the UVB ray away from the skin. This is usually a chemical and a harmful one at that. It’s been clinically proven to leak into the body and even found in cancerous tumours! We won’t use it in our products. If you want to stop the burn we recommend being cautious with the sun; build up your melanin slowly each day (15 minutes in the sun first day, 20 minutes in the sun the next) and ultimately stay in the shade the rest of the time.


If you have no choice but to be in the sun for a long time then apply a natural oil first before putting on a SPF cream, this way the oil acts as a barrier and stops the SPF molecules being absorbed by the body. Now for UVA, this radiation emitted by the sun is everywhere and a lot of SPFs won’t protect you from UVA (and if you do they may not be using a very effective ingredient to do it).


UVA damage is the main cause of premature ageing by mutating our cells. All our Prevention Facial Oils have Vital oils that protect against UVA radiation. So, no we don’t put SPF protection in our products because it’s not needed. We protect against the real threat when it comes to premature ageing and that is UVA.


When you see an anti-ageing product that contains SPF, ask if it protects against UVB and UVA because if you want to protect against pigmentation and skin damage it must protect you from UVA.Glamour Magazine released an article about beauty toxins killing marine life. UV Filters are on the list of top offenders!


You may have heard about the great step that Hawaii took in Jan 2018 to ban the sale of any sunscreens that contained oxybenzone and octinoxate.


The ingredients have been shown to be toxic to marine life, including deformed coral larvae, plankton and algae, as well as accumulating in the muscles of fish and crustaceans (which humans then eat). On top of the threat to the marine eco-system, these two chemicals are known as endocrine disruptors, and may cause disruption to human hormones when absorbed through the skin or ingested through contaminated food. While there isn't enough research to say for certain, many researchers suspect that the chemicals may result in a host of health problems, including breast cancer, birth defects and DNA damage when they enter the blood stream.'
