Our Favourite Plant Powered Ingredients!



Raspberry Seed Oil, Olive Oil, and Pomegranate Seed Oil have emerged as valuable ingredients in the realm of skincare, especially within Province Apothecary! These natural oils are rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants, and fatty acids, making them potent allies in the pursuit of a glowing complexion.

Raspberry Seed Oil is celebrated for its high content of essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids. These fatty acids not only provide deep hydration but also reinforce the skin's lipid barrier, preventing moisture loss and enhancing the skin's natural resilience. Additionally, the oil's abundant antioxidants, including Vitamin E and polyphenols, shield the skin from oxidative stress caused by environmental pollutants and UV radiation. You can find Raspberry Seed Oil in our Moisturizing Oil Cleanser + Makeup Remover, Clear Skin Advanced Face Serum, Rejuvenating + Hydrating Face Serum! 

Olive Oil is renowned for its nourishing properties. Rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and squalene, it helps retain skin moisture and suppleness. The oil's high concentration of Vitamin E aids in neutralizing free radicals and promoting cell regeneration. Olive oil's anti-inflammatory characteristics also make it suitable for soothing irritated skin and reducing redness, making it an adaptable addition to skincare routines. We love using Olive Oil in our Healing Eczema Balm, Repairing Lip Balm, and our luxurious Bath + Body Oil! 

Pomegranate Seed Oil is celebrated for its ability to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. Packed with omega-5 fatty acids and punicic acid, it enhances skin elasticity, promoting a more youthful appearance. This oil boasts exceptional antioxidant prowess, surpassing even green tea and red wine in its potency. These antioxidants combat premature aging, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and promote a balanced skin tone. Try it in our Radiant Bath & Body Oil, as well as our Rejuvenating + Hydrating Face Serum.

All three oils share a common thread: they are non-comedogenic, meaning they won't clog pores. This makes them suitable for various skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. Moreover, they possess anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in calming skin conditions like acne, eczema, and rosacea.

Incorporating these oils into skincare routines can lead to remarkable outcomes. Regular application can help enhance skin texture, mitigate signs of aging, and foster a radiant complexion. From moisture retention to protection against environmental stressors, these oils stand as veritable elixirs, offering a holistic approach to achieving and maintaining healthy, beautiful skin. However, as with any skincare product, patch testing and moderation are advised, as individual skin responses may vary. Embracing the benefits of Raspberry Seed Oil, Olive Oil, and Pomegranate Seed Oil allows one to harness the power of nature in the journey toward optimal skin health.

Not only do we love using these ingredients in our skincare, but we love to incorporate them into easy and healthy recipes! 

Try Pomegranate Seed Oil (or just plain pomegranate seeds!) in your next vinaigrette or salad dressing- super simple and yummy! Olive Oil is good on anything but have you tried it drizzled on top of vanilla ice cream? A must-have! Raspberries not only contain vitamins to protect the skin but taste great with yogurt and granola!
