Macadamia Milk Thistle Skin Barrier Builder
Build your skin's barrier!
Protect your skin from environmental stressors, bacteria, aging, sun damage, and dry skin. A reduced or damaged skin barrier can promote moisture loss, fine lines/aging, and cause inflammation, eczema, and sensitive skin. Improving the function of the lipid barrier keeps the skin moist, hydrated, healthy, and youthful.
Sessie Naturals Macadamia Milk Thistle Skin Barrier Builder is full of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and phytosterols that help build the lipid barrier in your skin, as well as prevent acne and reduce inflammation.

Macadamia nut oil: The Linoleic Acid (Omega 6) in Macadamia nut oil helps to restore the skin barrier function and reduce water loss. Macadamia nut oil also contains Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7), an active anti-microbial that is found naturally in youthful skin; It's the closest match to the naturally occurring sebum of the skin. Macadamia nut oil is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, and it contains squalene and oleic acid that assists with cell regeneration and it softens and moisturizes dry skin. It contains phytosterols that help reduce itchiness and redness and has palmitoleic acid, which can delay skin and cell aging as well as prevent water loss in the skin- helping the skin retain a youthful, healthy appearance.
Milk thistle oil: is high in Silymarin and Vitamin E, which provides antioxidant benefits that help protect skin from environmental stressors, and fatty acids (including linoleic acid) that help build the skin's natural moisture barrier. The linoleic acid also improves cell membranes, making skin cells less permeable to dangerous chemicals and pollutants. Milk thistle's main active ingredient, silymarin, has amazing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that fight free radicals that attack skin cells (resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots). Milk thistle oil can directly slow the aging process of skin because it directly inhibits the glycation process on a cellular level. (Glycation is an aging reaction between the sugar and proteins in your skin. The bridges between protein and sugar are what makes skin supple. These start to break down at age 30 and increase regularly as you get older.)
Chia seed oil: High in zinc, antioxidants- the antioxidants in chia seed oil have shown to be even stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E, two common and powerful antioxidants. It also has chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid, as well as myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol flavonoids- which are antioxidants that offer protection from environmental stressors. Chia is considered the richest botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids found in nature, offering more than flax seed or fish oil. Chia also has many essential minerals, help treats acne, improves blood circulation, and gives your skin a healthy glow. It revitalizes dull and damaged skin, hydrates, and calms redness and inflammation. It also increases the skin's collagen and elastin levels, repairing dry, damaged skin cells. Chia seed oil is also a great source of vitamin B3 and zinc, which helps with oily skin and clogged pores.
Perilla seed oil: is high in Omega 3 fatty acids that soothe, repair and provide powerful antioxidant protection for mature and aging skin. It also helps protect the skin from damage by fighting free radicals that can destroy the body’s cells and tissues. Perilla seed oil is an excellent oil for acne or eczema and inflammation/itchiness due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It also minimizes the appearance of large pores, wrinkles and dark spots. Perilla seed oil helps strengthen the skin and prevents unnecessary moisture loss.
Cucumber seed oil: is highly moisturizing for dry, dehydrated, damaged and irritated skin. Anti-inflammatory properties from Omega 6 fatty acids in cucumber seed oil help soothe eczema and psoriasis. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles due to its powerful antioxidants. Cucumber seed oil has Vitamin E in the form of alpha-tocopherol and gamma-tocopherol, which fights off pro-aging free radicals that cause premature aging of the skin. Cucumber seed oil is rich in phytosterols that nourish and stimulate skin cells, encouraging healthy skin cell regeneration, and strengthens the skin’s lipid barrier. Cucumber seed oil also reduces acne inflammation and associated redness.
Rosehip oil: is full of vitamins A, C, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Rosehip oil can help repair any damage the sun might have caused your skin. It keeps the skin hydrated and acts as a catalyst for healing, improves the elasticity of the skin, regenerates damaged skin, and reduces inflammation. Rosehip oil helps fight signs of aging, and the astringent properties in rosehip oil help tighten your pores and brighten your skin.
Dill seed oil: contains monoterpene effects, which ultimately help antioxidant molecules attach to oxidized molecules that would otherwise do damage in the body. Dill seed oil also increases the production of the precursor of elastin, tropoelastin. (Tropoelastin molecules bind together to create elastin.) It stimulates elastin synthesis by activating dermal fibroblasts. (Fibroblasts synthesize collagen, elastin, and keratin in the dermis. They assist in wound healing and prevents skin aging, as well as helps rebuild skin’s structural integrity.)
Kalahari melon seed oil: Contains linolenic acid which can help unclog pores and remove excess sebum on the surface of the skin. The miracle oil also contains antioxidants and vitamins A, C, and E which help to hydrate and tighten skin, making it appear firmer and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. These antioxidants also reduce skin inflammation and acne. Kalahari melon seed oil is a noncomedogenic (won't clog pores), restorative skincare oil with a high sterol content. This includes β-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol and 5-avenasterol. The skin’s stratum corneum has a significant sterol component (14% of lipids) and this is integral in maintaining barrier function in the skin.
