Antioxidant serum with blackberry seed oil

After long winter months our skin often feels dry and dull. How about pumping up your skin with some vitamins and antioxidants? Try this moisturizing antioxidant cocktail with blackberry seed oil, kukui nut oil and rice bran oil!

Did you know that blackberries are one of the greatest source of natural antioxidants? Due to the excellent combination of bioactive compounds, blackberries are even studied as a potential cancer medicine (1, 2).
Blackberry seed oil helps fighting free radicals that cause premature aging of our skin. In addition, this great oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids that help to moisturize the skin and reduce its dryness and fine lines.

Rice bran oil is also rich in powerful antioxidants, such as tocotrienols and tocopherols. Kukui nut oil moisturizes and softens the skin and repairs skin’s natural barrier.

The recipe:

- Blackberry seed oil - 2 tsp.
- Rice bran oil (30%) - 1 tsp.

I always prepare small amounts to enjoy it fresh!

1. Mix the oils

2. Transfer in a bottle, preferably of dark glass. If you use a transparent bottle, make sure to keep the serum away from light.

I used a roll-on bottle for the serum – it makes it easy to apply on the skin and gives a massaging effect 

Instructions for use:
- Apply in the evening gently massaging the skin
- Avoid contact with eyes.
- Do not use the product if you are allergic to any of its components.
- Store in a dark cool place and use within 3 months.
