Why Camellia Seed Oil:
Camellia seed oil has almost the identical molecular weight as our skin. As a non-comedogenic oil it quickly penetrates the skin and hair without leaving an oily residue; a true dry oil. It is also known to have more antioxidants than other botanical oil. It contains UV protection due to the polyphenol compounds. Full of vitamins A, B, C and E and abundant in oleic acid that regenerates the skin it is perfect for all skin types. Its properties add moisture to soften and make the skin more supple as well has containing anti-inflammatory properties.
Why Rose Hips:
Rosehip oil is rich in antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids, like linoleic acid, which are imperative for preventing the breakdown of cell membranes in the skin. Strong, healthy cells act as a barrier to prevent bacteria from invading the skin, which can lead to outbreaks and infections.
Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are integral for tissue and cell regeneration in the skin. It’s no wonder that the oil has long been used as a folk remedy for wound healing, as well as the reduction of scars and fine lines.
Rosehip oil is rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A is made up of several nutritional compounds, including retinoids. Retinoids are known for their ability to reduce hyperpigmentation and other visible signs of aging with regular use.
Rosehip oil also contains both lycopene and beta carotene. These ingredients are known to contain skin-lightening properties, making them staple ingredients in many skin-lightening products.
Rosehip is rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, which can help reduce inflammation. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects.
With this in mind, rosehip oil may help calm irritation resulting from: Rosacea, Psoriasis, Eczema and Dermatitis.
Collagen is the building block of skin. It’s essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Your body naturally makes less collagen as you age.
Rosehip oil is rich in vitamins A and C, which are both necessary for the production of collagen. Rosehip has also been shown to inhibit the creation of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body.
Natural exfoliation with rosehip oil can help reduce dullness and leave you with glowing, vibrant skin.
That’s because rosehip oil is high in Vitamins A and C. Vitamin A, or retinol, encourages skin cell turnover. Vitamin C also aids in cell regeneration, boosting overall radiance.
Rosehip oil contains a wealth of essential fatty acids, including linoleic and linolenic acid. Fatty acids help to keep cell walls strong so that they don’t lose water.
This cleansing oil is truly a gem in our apothecary. Having access to fresh harvested ripe juniper berry is a gift from nature. Only available to use now that we have moved to the Ozarks and can finally utilize our native flora. Our juniper and rose hips are harvested wild, but not ‘wild crafted”. They are harvested by hand from our own land. 100% sustainable, renewable, organic and COMPLETELY NATURAL. These ingredients are harvested and brought immediately to infusion. There is NO fresher product available unless you’ve made it yourself. Our herbs NEVER sit on a shelf. They are added to the oil immediately after harvest. After 1 week of cold infusion the oil is brought to 100 degree F for 24 hours to increase the potency, but never hot enough to ‘cook’ the herbs or oil. The peak of potency. The aroma is so fresh. You’re gonna love it!

There is ample proof that that botanical medicines have been used for thousands of years, and it is reasonable to believe that they were also used by primitive man to survive diseases, and the rigors of aging.
None of these products have been evaluated by the FDA.
Many botanicals offered at Starfish Honey are recognized in the United States and foreign pharmacopias. Many of them have been discarded for stronger, more certain, synthetic drugs, or other reasons.
