Research-Backed Clean Luxury Beauty: Sacred Mama Organics SuperFood Beauty Oil

BY STYLE CHICKS

Watercress is an unsung skin hero. It is packed with skin-nourishing, rejuvenating nutrients. We love Watercress because it enhances collagen III (baby collagen) AND elastin. So we’re over the moon to learn of a Watercress-based beauty oil: Sacred Mama Organics SuperFood Beauty Oil. This oil contains decadently nutritive, organic ingredients.  Research studies show these ingredients each support skin rejuvenation.

Sacred Mama Organics SuperFood Beauty Oil is the beauty brainchild of Sacred Mama Organics founder Judy Beserra. This organic oil packs in beauty powerhouses like Pomegranate, Royal Jelly, Abyssinian Seed and Rosehip Oils. The true star of this oil, however, is “baby collagen”-making Watercress.

Watercress is a secret anti-aging weapon.

Wonderful, Wonderful Watercress

Sacred Mama Organics SuperFood Beauty Oil is a non-comedogenic Watercress-based oil. It is suitable for daily use and beauty emergencies.

We previously posted exciting skincare research identifying the exact mechanism of the skin resiliency changes that cause rougher skin and overall skin aging. The study cited that Watercress reverses these skin issues by promoting Collagen III production in the dermal cells.  Collagen III is known as baby collagen because it is plentiful at birth but diminishes with age.  Collagen III must regenerate in the dermal cells of the papillary dermis skin layer to reverse signs of aging.  [1] Watercress can do this.

Watercress also contains many skin-enhancing nutrients. One example is copper. Copper builds both collagen and elastin.

Elastin gives skin its’ springy, vibrant, youthful bounce.  Elastin is as important as collagen, but fewer products address elastin restoration. And even fewer restore the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermal cells.

Watercress is only one of the many skin-enhancing ingredients in this amazing formulation.

These ingredients are natural, safe and backed by many independent research studies. Let’s take a look.

 Ingredient Profile

Watercress is a gentle antioxidant full Vitamins A, C, E, K, and notably, Copper. [2] Watercress is a wonderful inclusion in this formulation because Copper has the rare and amazing ability to restore skin elastin. Elastin gives skin its’ youthful bounce and the ability to spring back.

Watercress supports both dermal cells and enhanced collagen production to make skin firmer and radiant. It specifically encourages collagen III production.
