Carotene extract is a specialty extract of active carotenoid compounds blended in sunflower oil.

It is used mainly as a Provitamin A-carrier in scalp care, sun protection, day creams, night creams, baby-care, and skin oils. Regular use of the oil can benefit dry skin and wrinkled skin and it acts as a regulator for sebum production. This makes carotene oil extract highly suitable for after-sun preparations. 

Size: 10ml, 30ml (with 'eye dropper' pipette), 50ml or 100ml.

This product is certified: Vegan and Beauty Without Cruelty.

INCI: Dunaliella Salina Extract & Helianthus Annuus Seed

About Standardised Essential Oils

Standardised essential oils are produced to achieve a standard scent, whereas a single species essential oil may vary in scent because it is an individual plant species that can naturally vary with season, rainfall, soil quality, geography and a variety of other factors. Standardising the scent by combining multiple species is a method of producing an oil that will always be similar in quality. Standardised oils can therefore be quite beneficial when scent reliability is required.

Standardised essential oils are pure essential oils which have not been diluted, filled or altered in any way. The only differentiating factor between standardised essential oils and others is that multiple variations of plant species are distilled.
