Thistle Oil - The Omega 6 and 3 Powerhouse
It is the seeds of the plant that are refined or cold pressed to produce thistle oil, which is characterized as thin and dry. This kind of classification means the oil will quickly and easily melt into the skin without feeling greasy. In short – thistle is a non-oily oil.
An Essential Fatty Acid Powerhouse
Great For Pores...
Because thistle oil is such a rich source of essential fatty acid, it adds a great skin-loving boost when partnered with other oils and fats. It is incredibly well tolerated and ideal for problem skin, mature skin and normal-to-oily skin. Thistle oil also helps to reduce the size of the pores, helping to rebalance skin.
For brittle nails that are prone to splitting, thistle offers healing powers when applied neat and gently massaged in.
