TWELVE Beauty Intelligent Frontier Facial Oil

This lipid restoring oil may trick you into thinking this product isn’t potent. The deceptively light texture leans towards watery rather than oily, which deepens penetration, rather than coating your skin. After 7 days of consistent use, you’ll be left with glowing, fortified, revived and resilient skin from the inside, without the oil slick.
This thoughtful formulation utilizes processes and and ingredients we don’t normally find in most beauty products. For example, unsaponifiables.  Hadn’t come across this term until TWELVE Beauty’s Intelligent Frontier Facial Oil. It literally means cannot be made into soap, which is good news for skin. These healthy natural oils are extracted so purely and contain the most active ingredients of their respective plant oils. From there, they are bonded to alkalizing molecules which make this oil bioavailable, highly nutritious and safe for all skintypes.  The lipids in this formulation penetrate the skin deeply to maximize hydration, vitamin penetration and texture.
Why don’t we see this level of quality from all facial oils? The meticulous extraction and efficacy achieved in Twelve is an expensive process. Not to use car terms but this oil, created by cosmetoligist, botanist and pharmacist Dr Pedro Catala, is high performance.  Sadly, the price reflects that at $80 for 10ml, but the product is loaded with science not hype.
Now let’s talk about my love for revitalizing and skin softening pollen. This oil adds this superstar to the mix, along with deeply effective hyaluronic acid. Pollen reinvigorates and feeds the skin with amino acids, enzymes, magnesium, zinc and vitamins, while the workhorse hyauronic acid drives it into the dermis to plump and retain hydration.
Also loving the thoughtfulness of TWELVE’s Miron violet glass, to preserve and prevent the light sensitive deterioration of the product. And the smaller 10ml version made for Ayla is great for travel and ensures freshness.
