Love Your Skin Back with Carrot Seed Oil
What is carrot seed oil?
Carrot seed oil is distilled from the Daucus carota plant (commonly known as wild carrot, Queen Anne’s lace, or bishop’s lace). It has been used since ancient times, across cultures, to soothe inflammation and promote healing. In addition to beauty and skincare products, carrot seed oil is often used in aromatherapy and in Chinese medicine.
Why do we feature carrot seed oil in our Violets Are Blue skincare lines?
Because carrot seed oil is rich in beta carotene, vitamins A and E and pro-vitamin A, it has powerful healing and moisturizing properties for dry or damaged skin. Carrot seed oil has also been shown to tone and tighten skin, making it beneficial for mature skin. As with all our featured ingredients, carrot seed oil is nourishing and pure -- ideal for incorporating into your skincare and self-care routines.
You can find carrot seed oil in our Carrot and Rosehip Seed Facial Serum, which is perfect for tired, dry, or mature skin. We've crafted the perfect blend of organic Evening Primrose oil, organic Argan oil, organic Rosehip oil, organic Jojoba, and a handful of organic essential oils such as Carrot Seed and Lavender in this easily absorbed serum.
This versatile serum can be used morning and evening to hydrate the entire face, jawline and neck. It can be applied over foundation directly for a healthy glow and can even be used on hair to combat fly aways and split ends.
