Benefits of Carrot Seed for Skin


Carrot Seed, a favorite ingredient in our formulations, brings abundant care to the skin–ready to soothe, heal, and protect. Here, we explore the benefits of Carrot Seed for the skin, illuminating its potent blend of vitamins and antioxidants that naturally rejuvenate and fortify the complexion, revealing a radiant, healthy glow that speaks to the essence of nature’s healing power.

What is Carrot Seed?

Carrot Seed, a precious component of our skincare collection, is derived from the dried seeds of the wild carrot, Daucus carota, known for its delicate white flowers and feathery leaves. Unlike the common carrot root we're familiar with in our kitchens, wild carrot, or Queen Anne's Lace, as it's affectionately called, offers us a different bounty.  

Carrot Seed involves minimal processing, such as grinding or crushing the seeds to enhance the extraction of their beneficial compounds, and sifting to ensure purity. This method retains the potent properties of the seeds without the need for extraction into oil form, offering a unique approach to harnessing the power of wild carrot.

Carrot Seed should not be confused with Carrot Root oil, which is obtained directly from the carrot root and is categorized as a carrier oil, or Carrot Seed Oil, where the seeds are  cold-pressed or steam-distilled to extract the oil. 

The Nutrient Profile of Carrot Seed 

At the heart of Carrot Seed’s benefits is its high concentration of Vitamin A, a potent antioxidant that plays a crucial role in skin health. Vitamin A helps to stimulate the production of new skin cells, aiding in the repair and maintenance of the skin's tissue for anti-aging benefits, reducing the appearance of fine lines and promoting a more even skin tone. Vitamins E and C complement each other in nurturing and protecting the skin. 

Carrot Seed’s composition is enhanced further by essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (Omega-6) and oleic acid (Omega-9), which are vital for maintaining skin hydration and elasticity. Beyond these, Carrot Seed contains diverse carotenoids, amplifying its antioxidant capacity.

The Skin and Hair Benefits of Carrot Seed 

Carrot Seed, our multi-tasking powerhouse, is infused into our formulas so every part of your body can experience its nurturing touch and remarkable skin care benefits.

In Plant Milk Serum, Carrot Seed’s unique ability to rejuvenate through its high Vitamin A content harmonizes with other botanical extracts, directly targeting the skin's need for repair and resilience. Its antioxidant properties mitigate irritation and redness, offering a soothing embrace that leaves skin deeply nourished and visibly restored, enhancing the serum's commitment to calm and comfort sensitive complexions.

Awakening Eye Gel features Carrot Seed as a key ally in supporting the delicate challenges of the eye area. Its capacity to promote elasticity and support cell regeneration addresses the concerns of fatigue and aging, revitalizing the skin for a firmer, more vibrant look. The seed’s inherent qualities work diligently to diminish fine lines and awaken the under-eye area with renewed vitality.

Luminous Morning Crème is invigorated by Carrot Seed’s protective antioxidants and restorative Vitamin A, setting a luminous tone for the day. It bolsters the skin's defense against environmental aggressors, while its synergy with uplifting citrus essences energizes the complexion and spirit alike. 

In Celestial Rose Crème, the fortifying essence of Carrot Seed melds with the soothing properties of Rose and Manuka Honey, creating a protective and rejuvenating sanctuary for the skin. It plays a pivotal role in reinforcing the skin's barrier, aiding in moisture retention, and improving elasticity, thus contributing to a supple, toned complexion enriched by the crème's luxurious texture.

Rose Geranium and Tangerine Body Lotion celebrates the whole-body benefits of Carrot Seed, extending its nourishing touch beyond the face. Within this aromatic blend, Carrot Seed acts to soothe and soften skin across the body, ensuring every inch benefits from its rejuvenating and protective capabilities. The result is skin that feels continuously pampered, enveloped in the lasting embrace of moisture and the gentle strength of the seed’s restorative properties.

Carrot Seed is highly regarded for its skin-protective properties, particularly against sun damage. However, it should be used in conjunction with, rather than as a replacement for, broad-spectrum sunscreens to ensure comprehensive protection against the sun's rays.

In our holistic approach to wellness, we often find ingredients supporting both skin and hair health. This is true of Carrot Seed–its virtues, when extracted as an oil, extend beautifully to hair care, rooted in its rich nutrient profile. The high concentration of Vitamin A aids in promoting a healthy scalp, creating an environment where hair can thrive. The essential fatty acids in the oil, such as linoleic and oleic acids, contribute to moisturizing the hair, enhancing its natural sheen, and improving overall hair texture by making it softer.

Integrating Carrot Seed into Your Beauty Routine

Incorporate Carrot Seed into your daily beauty rituals with one or more of our formulations, and embrace its incredible capacity to heal, protect, and revitalize. Each product supports your skin's health and enhances your wellness journey with the purity and integrity of nature's gifts. For hair, several drops of carrot seed oil can be added to your conditioner ,or you can practice scalp massage with the oil to enjoy its protective, nourishing benefits 

This holistic approach to wellness, where an ingredient like Carrot Seed supports both skin and hair health, showcases the interconnectedness of our body's systems and the potential for a single ingredient to nourish multiple aspects of our well-being.
