THREE GOOD THINGS

Nourishing
Locks in moisture to keep skin hydration levels high and prevents collagen degradation. 

Balancing
Rebalances the skin's natural oil production and improves the overall firmness.

Calming
Soothes irritation and overall complexion - a comfort blanket for the skin.


  • 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.

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.

What will this Vitamin Face Oil do?

The Nectar is designed to nourish, balance, and calm the skin. The high content of fatty acids help repair an irritated skin barrier and helps soften tight or dry skin. 


If we compare it to our diet: for optimal health, we need to incorporate healthy fats in our diet, which we find in foods like salmon, avocados, nuts & seeds. They contain essential fatty acids (omega’s) that the body needs as it can’t produce Omega-6 fatty acid (also known as linoleic acid). Basically, The Nectar is your healthy fats for the skin, and supplying it topically will help improve overall skin health.

I already have a face cream, why do I need a face oil?

Firstly, face creams are great and a staple in most skincare routines. Moisturizers often consist of water-based ingredients, emollients like shea butter, and some oil-based ingredients at a lower percentage. As we know in basic chemistry, water evaporates. Thus adding a face oil like The Nectar can help lock in that moisture from your face cream for a longer period of time and provides the nourishment your skin loves. 


In addition, plant oils have added vitamins, minerals, and omega fatty acids that give your skin an extra dose of concentrated nutrients.

When do I use The Nectar in my skincare routine?

The Nectar is very easy to incorporate into your routine. Use as the last step, after cleansing directly onto damp skin or after your toner/serum/moisturizer depending on what your routine is. You could also mix in a few drops with your face cream directly if you don’t have much time. In the morning, follow up with an SPF.


You can use The Nectar daily, morning and evening, depending on your preference.

Is The Nectar organic and natural?

Yes, we only include COSMOS-certified oils that meet the strict requirements to be 100% natural and organic.

Is The Nectar free from added fragrance and essential oils?

Yes, The Nectar does not contain any added fragrance or essential oils.


So what does The Nectar smell like?

Fresh and herbal. Because our formula is a blend of cold-pressed oils, it retains more of their nutritive properties than other extraction methods, creating a more potent formula. This also means it keeps most of their subtle flavour, colour and natural herbaceous scent.

Is it pregnancy-safe?

Yes, The Nectar 100% pregnancy safe. The blend can also be used as a belly oil.

Is it suitable for very sensitive skin?

Due to the omission of fragrance and essential oils, which can be skin sensitizing to some, The Nectar is suitable for very sensitive skin. Our goal is to minimize the risk of irritation but as everyone has their own unique skin, we do always recommend patch testing it first.

Will this clog my pores?

This blend is a non-clogging formula as the plant oils in this blend are all very lightweight. How? Oils high in linoleic acid are shown to be quickly absorbed and less heavy on the skin than oils high in oleic acid. The Nectar is a high linoleic acid blend that does not leave the skin feeling greasy or clogged

Is it suitable for any age and skin tone?

This universal blend is great for mature skin but also younger, more hormonal skin. It also is suitable for all skin tones. 


When do I see results?

With regular use, the skin should become more moisturized, soft, and calm within a matter of days. For any skin conditions like acne or skin irritations, wait a few weeks to see results.

Brilliant Product

I love this vitamin facial oil, it has already made a huge difference to my skin. My skin feels softer and looks less dry and has a more even tone. I'm hoping that a return and refill service will become available with this product and no large box to deliver it in. Great product!

CONGESTION AND BLOCKED PORES CLEARED

I was extremely pleased to find a facial oil that doesn't make me breakout! Quite the opposite it has calmed and cleared up the "bumpy cheeks" I have always had. My skin is now so smooth.
My skin type is normal, the odd breakout, but I have always had blocked pores/milia and congestion on my cheeks and temples. Most oils give me a guaranteed pimple breakout...this one does not. I absolutely love it and have ordered another and I'll be ordering nearer for Christmas for my friends and family :)

The best face oil

This is my second time purchasing The Nectar, because I’m obsessed! It’s the only facial oil I can use that doesn’t break me out. I also love how quick it gets rid of any pigmentation on my skin when having a breakout.
