The Super Couple Ultra-Luxe Face Oil Serum arrived at Orange Blossom Skin Care several months ago after I had experimented with it on clients and myself. I am extremely particular about the brands that I collaborate with and it has been a few years since I have decided to bring on another skin care line. In other words, this was a BIG DEAL!
The Super Couple is one of those all purpose hydrators that never goes out of style. The formula is clean and free of synthetic chemicals, there is a plethora of essential oils for a broad range of skincare benefits, AND it has a long shelf life (so important when you have several oils in rotation like me!).
What Makes This Serum Unique
Beyond the results - evenness of skin tone, increased hydration levels, increased sun/pollution protection, and a luminous glow - there are two main superstar ingredients in this oil based serum:
Supercritical Chia Seed Oil and Astaxanthin Extract.
Chia Seed Oil is packed with essential fatty acids which are important for proper maintenance of your epidermal barrier function. It also contains a heap of antioxidants, Vitamin B3 and zinc (said to help with clogged pores). It helps to keep the skin plump and moist as well. Supercritically extracted chia seed oil is the purest form available. High heat is not used in this process and therefore prevents degradation of the oil's phytochemicals. Solvents are also unnecessary resulting an a pristine, unadulterated extraction. (You can read about supercritical extraction here).
The second key ingredient is Asthaxanthin extract. Asthaxanthin is a carotenoid (a type of antioxidant) found in algae. It provides strong protection against UV radiation and provides algae with it's intense coloration. When applied topically, this natural extract provides the skin with additional sun protection as well as preventing oxidation from other environmental stressors such as pollution. Some reports have estimated that Astaxanthin may be up to 6000X stronger than Vitamin C as an antioxidant!
When added together with a holistic cocktail of essential oils, this elixir provides the skin with everything needed to keep the skin hydrated, repaired, protected, and refreshed.
