Having launched Botanico Vida this month, we thought we’d give a little bit of extra love for Sacha Inchi, the key ingredient that makes this Omega Oil an absolute best ever.
Sacha Inchi is a nut that you’re going to start hearing more and more about on account of it’s incredibly powerful healing benefits. Sacha Inchi has already taken the US Wholefood market by storm, being eaten in the handful by eagerly healthy women and men. It tastes much like a nut and then has an incredibly unique after taste, buttery, maybe even fishy (according to HuffPost). A native of South America and South East Asia, these large peanut sized seeds are packed with nutrients with the highest level of Omega 3s of all the nuts and seeds on the markets. We’ve even read claims that it contains 17x the Omega 3 content of salmon, as well as all 8 essential amino acids.
There are very few foods as nutrient rich as Bioactive Sacha Inchi. It is the Earth’s richest plant source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 and is high in protein, vitamins and anti-oxidants. The seed is cultivated by the indigenous communities of the Amazon basin and is fairly traded, sustainable and the subject of a reforestation program in Peru. When applied directly to the skin, Omega Oil delivers the goodness of Omegas (the building blocks of the skin) directly to the epidermis and leaves the skin soft and supple. Omega Oil helps to reduce redness and inflammation and significantly improves skin elasticity and hydration.
As the main ingredient of Botanico Vida, founders Hannah and Kristy have created a skin oil perfect for dry or irritated skin, stretch marks, scars, ageing skin, and uneven skin tone. And they’ve taken the product through clinical trials and have all the proof of just how hard working it is.
In this wonder-product, the Sachi Inchi is combined with Argan and Rosehip Oils, Avocado and Olive Fruit Oil, Sunflower Seed and Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and Calendula and Mandarin and Grapefruit. The scent is fruity, fresh and zingy all in one go. And completely un-perfumed.
There are so many uses for this miracle spray – and that’s before even telling you that it’s suitable even for babies!
Omega Oil relieves itchiness and tightness by helping the skin to stretch. The absorbent, lightly scented formula is clinically proven to be more effective than the best selling oil on the market, but with none of the chemicals or nasties. With regular use, skin elasticity improves by 45% to help prevent stretch marks. It also helps to reduce the appearance of existing stretch marks.
The health benefits of foods rich in Omega 3 are well known. This product is the only topical, plant-based, Omega Oil on the market. This powerful blend of Omega Oils, vitamins and antioxidants delivers the skin’s building blocks directly into the epidermis. This helps to regenerate dry or tired skin and to reduce redness, scarring and inflammation.
Omega Oil is a nourishing, absorbent skincare oil suitable for face, body and all skin types including babies and children. Free from petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, colours, SLS, PEGs and synthetic fillers like Mineral Oil, it is hypo-allergenic, and more than 70% organic. This product is also certified with Leaping Bunny and the Vegan Society and all ingredients are Ecocert and Fair-Trade. Manufactured in the UK.
For those of you that are hard core fans of the market leader, do please consider that the market leader has taken that position because it has had zero competition to date. It’s been a great product for many, but as we all begin to make the shift to more natural skincare and begin to studiously scrutinise the products we use on our skin (the boy’s biggest organ) then we will turn further and further away from products that are artificially fragranced and from products containing industrialised by-products that actually aren’t too good for us, or the environment. Botanico Vida ticks all the boxes when it comes to natural and hardworking and for that reason, we’ve selected it as an absolute best ever.
