Hazelnut (Corylus Avellana Seed Oil)
This is a wonderful oil that has many benefits for acne prone skin. As with most oils it has a moisturizing effect. That is why it is in our moisturizing lotion, but it is not simply another oil. The properties of the hazelnut are slightly astringent. Hazelnut oil controls the body's own oil production and in addition can tighten the pores. The oil is non-comedogenic meaning it will not clog your pores or give you blackheads. One further benefit of hazelnut oil is that it is regularly included in sunscreen as it has antioxidant properties that help to prevent sun damage to your skin. Hazelnut oil is very high in vitamin E, contains antioxidants, has antibacterial, astringent and anti-Inflammatory properties.
