Marilla Body Oil
With its name meaning “shining sea” in Latin, this body oil is highly moisturising but without any of the stickiness of a body butter. Apricot Kernel and Pomegranate oils add extra hydration and help to keep skin supple. With essential oils like Jasmine and Ylang Ylang for fragrancing, it feels like a luxurious treat to oneself, and is reminiscent of spa scents.
The main ingredient in this delicious Body Oil is Kukui Nut oil. It is a fairly unique vegetable oil due to its high level of the essential fatty acids linoleic (Omega-6) and a-linolenic (Omega-3). Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils work immediately on application to reduce trans-epidermal water loss (moisture releasing through the top layers of skin) this helps to improve skin elasticity, and enhance the formation of anti-inflammatory metabolites.
Everything at Scintilla has been handmade using ingredients and materials from trusted suppliers to help bring more sustainable and affordable alternatives to everyday routines.
10% of profits are donated to the charities SEED Madagascar and Mind.
How to: Ideal for use all over the body, for direct skin application you can slowly pour a small amount into the palm of your hand and then apply to desired skin area, massaging into the skin until a light sheen remains. You can leave it to sink in from here.
For bath use, pour a generous amount into plain bath water before sitting and soaking. Drip or pat dry to gain maximum moisture from the oil.
For an indirect application, you can add this oil to a bubble-free bath instead. Be sure to drip dry or pat dry to get the full skin benefits of the product.
Fine details: Packaged in a 200ml glass bottle with aluminium lid. Please wash out and recycle once empty!
