DETAILS AND BENEFITS OF EACH INGREDIENT
- Argan Oil:
Certified Organic, Cold Pressed, Unrefined, Morocaan.
0 Comedogenic rating
My personal favorite! Make sure to buy certified organic, cold pressed, unrefined Moroccan argan oil. Argan oil is high in vitamin E, essential acids and retinol which combat free radicals that damage skin cells and cause premature aging. It's highly anti-inflammatory and will help ease eczema, psoriasis, acne and sensitivity issues. Argan oil deeply penetrates skin and is absorbed easily so it won't leave you feeling greasy. Argan oil makes a great after-sun treatment due to the high amount of vitamin E, which can heal UV damage. It also restores elasticity and reduces wrinkles. Talk about liquid gold!
- Marula Oil:
0 Comedogenic Rating
Wildcrafted, cold pressed, west africa
Marula oil is another favorite of mine, make sure you buy Organic or wild crafted, cold-pressed. This oil is a great companion to argan oil because it picks up where argan leaves off. Not only does marula oil diminish fine lines and wrinkles, but it promotes elasticity by stimulating collagen production. It is also great at reducing the appearance of scars and pigmentation. High in vitamin C & E, it's loaded with anti-oxidants and boots skin natural ability to regenerate.
- Hemp Seed Oil:
0 Comedogenic Rating
Certified Organic, cold pressed
This beauty oil is fantastic for restoring harmony to inflamed, angry skin. It's high in linoleic acid which naturally occurs in our own skin sebum. Linoleic acid keeps sebum moist and fluid, making it easier to flow out of your skin and prevent clogged pores. Hemp seed oil can reduce inflammation and dryness, even skin tone and is proficient at acne treatment. I always include this oil in my acne formulations.
- Lavender Essential Oil
Certified Organic, Steam Distilled, Bulgaria
Lavender is the most commonly used essential oil. It's high in anti-oxidants and improves mood and brain function. It's anti-inflammatory qualities heal acne, sunburn and allergenic skin conditions. Lavender is extremely healing, regenerative, antibacterial, and astringent which efficiently treat oily skin prone to acne. It's also beneficial for irritated, damaged skin, dilated pores, scars, stretch marks and dark spots.
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
Certified Organic, Steam Distilled, Ethiopia
The most common and well known use for tea tree oil is acne treatment. It's powerful antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-viral qualities encourage healing. Unlike benzoyl peroxide, it doesn't cause redness and peeling but it's equally as powerful. It's also effective against inflamed skin issues such as eczema and psoriasis.
- Frankincense Essential Oil
Certified Organic, Steam Distilled, Australia
Frankincense has been used medicinally for thousands of years and is sourced from the resin of the Boswellia tree, commonly grown in Somalia. It is a powerful astringent which speed sup the healing of acne, protects skin from bacteria and lifts & tightens. Frankincense will fade scars, controls sebum production, tones uneven skin, promotes cell regeneration, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and moisturizes dry skin.
My 15 year old son uses this daily. He never misses his daily dose of Antidote. If he gets low he begins to freak out! This is such a great product for teenage skin. If you can say a teenage boys has pretty skin, then mine does. We attribute this to his use of Antidote.
I have been using antidote for months now, it is my favorite argan oil. I use it day and night and it keeps away the bumpy spots and breakouts. Since switching to natural beauty products like argan republic's ( i use a lot of their products!) I actually have been able to stop using retinol for acne control and my skin looks so much better!
My favorite facial oil so far! Been using it for almost 2 weeks and I've seen so much improvement with my acne! Less breakouts and my acne scarring is clearing up as well. Even though I only apply it at night, I find it helps with my oil production during the day, which is great. Also, I love the scent, took me a while to get used to it but I love inhaling it before applying to my face. I was a bit skeptical about the tea tree oil it contains as my skin is a bit sensitive so I am very careful about what I use, but Marissa said it well diluted and I have not experienced any irritation! My first order from Argan Republic and I'm definitely looking forward to trying more! Thanks Marissa!!
I love love this product! I've used so many products for my blemishes and nothing has worked. So far using this product, I can already see the blemishes and any pimple start to diminish. I recommend for anyone with acne skin!!
I've been using this product for atleast a week and have noticed a significant improvement to my skin ! I have stubborn blemishes and I can see the slow change as the blemishes are slowly clearing up. Would recommend for anyone with acne !
This has been the most beneficial multitasker! I controls my blemishes. I apply this all over my face before bed and when I wake up my skin feels and looks amazing. I just purchased my second bottle! xoxo
This is the best stuff! My teenage son is the biggest fan of this product. It has helped to clear his skin up, he doesn't miss using Antidote.
This oil is amazing! Smells good and doesn't leave your skin feeling oily after it absorbs. Definitely noticed less blackheads since using and the break outs I have, it helps speed the healing process. It also helps when they have amazing discounts. I got this one for half off when they had a sale! Can't wait to get some for gifts this season
