Carrot Seed Oil
Carrot oil is very effective for the human body owing to its antibacterial and healing powers. Carrot oil is capable of hydrating dry skin, scalp, and hair. Carrot oil can be used alone or with another carrier oil. Carrot seed oil is used as a lubricant for the outermost layer of the human skin. This oil is capable of infusing into the skin to restore the lost moisture which happens due to evaporation. It forms a protective coating on the skin and hair helping them to retain their natural moisture levels.
The most beneficial aspect of this oil is the beta-carotene which is converted by the body into Vitamin A.
*Vitamin A is the most potent anti-ageing molecule and is the ONLY ingredient that is proven scientifically to reduce wrinkles*
