Ingredients

Kalahari Melon Seeds

As the name suggests, the Kalahari Melon is a wild fruit that originates from the southern African Kalahari desert. Research suggests Kalahari Melon Seed Oil results in reduced transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and increased moisture retention. The non-irritant, moisturising effects and high levels of omega 6 essential fatty acids (70% linoleic acid) provide an ingredient that is softening, non-greasy and stable due to its extremely high Vitamin E content. 


Black Cumin Seeds

Black Cumin aka Nigella Sativa has been used for centuries in the Middle East and Asia for medicinal purposes and with good reason. Research shows that this oil is antimicrobial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory, aiding conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. A clinical study demonstrates the efficacy of Black Cumin Seed Oil for acne vulgaris as well as reducing post-inflammatory marks. 


Red Raspberry Seeds

Packed full of antioxidant-rich Vitamin A, C and E, these protect against oxidative stress and pollution. Due to a high content of fatty acids, these seeds are also a skin barrier protector leaving the skin restored and calming inflammation. 

 

Passion Fruit Seeds

Derived from the seeds of the Passionflower, this oil has been used since the Aztec civilization. High in Lycopene to help soothe sun damage, minimise discolouration and fine lines, it is also the oil with one of the highest levels of linoleic acids to give it a lightweight texture. 


Cucumber Seeds

High in Phytosterols, these keep the skin nourished, work to maintain a healthy moisture balance and help strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier. They also promote cell regeneration, which replenishes and softens the skin. 


Hemp Seeds

From the seeds of the Cannabis plant, Hemp Seed Oil is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and is used to relieve inflamed skin and add moisturise without clogging pores. 


Sacha Inchi

The Sacha Inchi plant is found in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle and is a rich source of Omega 3 & 6 which aids regeneration of the lipid barrier structure. It also is high in antioxidants like Vitamin A which help with skin tightening and strengthening.


Pumpkin Seeds

A powerful oil with strong anti-inflammatory effects, Pumpkin Seeds are high in vitamin A and C, as well as essential minerals like Zinc, Potassium, and Magnesium, which help fight free radicals, stimulate collagen production and fade dark spots. A study in 2017 revealed that all participants had a significant reduction in acne vulgaris within three months and reinforced the anti-inflammatory function and overall skin repair. 


Rosehip Seeds

Derived from the seed of the rose, this oil is high in Vitamin A, C & E and is proven to brighten the complexion, regenerate damaged skin and help with skin elasticity and anti-ageing effects. It also helps to soothe skin irritation due to the high content of Vitamin E and Anthocyanin.


Prickly Pear Seeds

A luxurious oil that is high in Vitamin E and K as well as minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium. Studies have shown that Prickly Pear Seed Oil has 150% more Vitamin E than Argan Oil, helping to restore elasticity and diminish the appearance of fine lines as well as dark spots. 


TOCOPHEROL

Vitamin E works to slow down the oxidative rancidity process of the oils.

Oils for oily skin

Oil for oily skin? Say what?

That’s right. In fact, when used correctly, facial oils can calm down irritated skin and help with certain types of acne. 


The lowdown:

A common cause of acne is called a linoleic acid deficiency, a compound which is found in plant oils. In other words, all oils have a ratio of linoleic and oleic acid, which make up part of their fatty acid profile. We have only included oils that have a higher percentage in linoleic acid than oleic acid to make sure it is suitable even for oily and combination skin types. Because of this composition, it creates a very lightweight formula that is easily absorbed by the skin without causing congestion. 


In addition, Black Cumin, Hemp, and Pumpkin seed oil all have antibacterial properties that can aid acne-prone skin.

A Letter From The Founder...


“I wanted a facial oil that would suit my oily, acne-prone complexion and calm and nourish my skin instantly after a long day. What I like is that it truly is a lightweight formula that doesn’t take long to absorb and always has me wake up with the softest skin.”


This is a story that goes way back to suffering from skin conditions including eczema in my early childhood to acne, mild rosacea and perioral dermatitis as a teenager and adult. I know how horrible it feels to have painful cysts and bumpy-textured skin that just can’t be masked by any foundation or concealer.

It’s been my mission ever since to help others combat their own skincare concerns, especially those with temperamental skin and so I worked to get a diploma in organic skincare formulation and worked with my trusted chemist to create products that promise to respect and support your beautiful skin.


MONDAY MUSE has your skin’s best interests at heart.
