So the human body is amazing. Think about it. It can repair itself, regulate all sorts of shenanigans and it can produce the sort of things that can make us exclaim ‘how’d my body make that!’ But there are a few things it can’t do, and some are pretty important to keep things ticking along.
Enter essential fatty acids, or EFAs. EFAs are vital. We need to eat them and we need to put them on our skin.
EFAs are fats (called omega 3 and omega 6) that our body needs to aid in a bunch of bodily activity. Examples:
- Cellular development and maintaining healthy cell membranes
- Brain, nervous system, thyroid and adrenal activity
- Regulate blood pressure, immune responses and liver function
A diet rich in EFAs looks after all of the above, and also helps with great looking skin. But there’s a trick. You need the right amounts of these EFAs in the right balance.
Enter Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil. If you’re already scattering these seeds on your muesli or popping them in your green smoothie, boy you’re on the right track. Now you can put them on your face. Well, not the seeds – that’d be weird.
Turns out squeezing the bejesus outta these little seeds produces a light-weight mega-omega super-oil for your great-looking skin. And this oil is a little bit different from the other plant oils used in skincare.
Enter the 3:1 ratio. Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil happens to have the perfect ratio of 3:1 omega 3 to omega 6 essential fatty acids. A load of omega 3 with just a dash of omega 6 provides the gold standard of anti-inflammatory support. This gives your skin everything it needs to do what it’s designed to do - making you look awesome (and keeping your insides inside and infection free).
