For years, pine nut oil has been used to treat burns and grazes, added to fragrant baths and used in massages.
Siberian pine resin, which is called “zhivitsa” (“healer”) for its ability to heal wounds, is popular with the traditional tribes of Siberia and the Urals. These tribes discovered the anaesthetic and anti-bacterial properties many years ago.
And we use Siberian pine oil as the base ingredient in our skin care and hair care ranges!
For your skin
Siberian pine nut oil effectively smooths and nourishes skin, enhances skin immunity and has a powerful rejuvenating effect. Its antiseptic properties are perfect for easing spots and blemishes, while its antioxidant and anti-ageing properties rejuvenate and enhance skin tissue. This helps to preserve the healthy radiant appearance of skin.
And then there are known healing properties of pine needles, which are rich in ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and carotene.
For your locks
In shampoos and conditioners, it can help to stimulate hair growth, restore the integrity of hairs’ keratin layer and leave it looking shiny and full of body.
Oil produced from the pine growing on the bank of Lake Baikal is especially rich in vitamin E. It contains five to six times more vitamin E than olive oil, and more vitamin A than fish oil!
And this amazing conifer is found in the mountains and plains practically all along the territory of West and East Siberia. This is the reason we use the oil as a base in our products!
If the oil is good for our skin and good for our hair, what’s not to love?
