Suffice it to say, Mad Hippie is a brand that delivers on its intent to create products that are not only clean and green, but effective as well!

Also, how cool is their name?! Just saying…

I have been using their “Antioxidant Face Oil” for weeks now and today I’m going to spill why I am simply “mad” for this product! 😉

First of all, let’s take a look at what ingredients are involved in this oil (info from Mad Hippie’s website):

Argan Oil – Providing instant, non-comedogenic hydration to the skin while naturally occurring triterpenoids work to reduce the appearance of scars & inflammation.  Containing over 80% essential fatty acids, as well as naturally occurring vitamin E, this exotic oil works to moisturize & revitalize the skin.
Sea Buckthorn Berry – This berry native to the Tibetan Himalayas, is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, P, carotenoids, flavonoids, phenols, folic acid & fatty acids. In fact, the buckthorn berry is the only plant in the world to contain omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 all together.
Blueberry Extract – This super fruit is rich in antioxidants including vitamins A & C that help protect the skin by neutralizing aging free radicals.  Blueberries have been shown to reduce the rigidity of capillary walls underneath the skin and are believed to promote circulation & aid in the reduction of redness & flushing.
Pomegranate Oil – Potent antioxidant that is a high source of ellagic acid, a polyphenol that has been shown in studies to help inhibit the growth of skin cancer.  Believed to also mediate the effects of ultraviolet rays & skin discoloration.
Camu Camu Berry – Amazonian berry with 30x the vitamin C of an orange.
Broccoli Extract – A recent study at John Hopkins found that broccoli extract applied topically reduced UV-induced redness & inflammation by an average of 37%.  This is thought to be a result of the sulforaphane found in broccoli.
Raspberry Seed Extract – High in antioxidants such as vitamin E, vitamin A, and omega fatty acids 3 & 6, raspberry seed extract is also known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-septic qualities.  High in ellagic acid, a natural polyphenol, raspberry seed extract helps neutralize aging free radicals and reduce the effects of photoaging.
Strawberry Extract – Another antioxidant-rich berry, Strawberry extract has been shown to have UV protective effects on the skin.
Goji Berry – Containing 18 vital amino acids, zinc, selenium, phosphorus and vitamins B1, B2, B6, C & E, goji berries provide the skin with essential nutrients and antioxidants. In fact, the superfruit contains more beta carotene than carrots, and even more iron than spinach.
Hemp Seed Extract –  Rich in omegas 3, 6 & 9, as well as antioxidants, hemp seed oil provides the skin with instant moisturizing and protective benefits.
Grape Seed Extract – One of nature’s most potent antioxidants, shown to inhibit UV generated skin damage and neutralize aging free radicals.
Sunflower Seed Oil –  Rich in vitamins A, D & E, as well as essential fatty acids, sunflower seed oil has natural moisturizing and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin.

Why I love this – I’m a sucker for a good face oil, and this one has definitely exceeded all my expectations. With an ingredients list that will make any ingredient nerd squeal with joy and a delicious fruity scent, this Anti-Oxidant Face Oil delivers deep nourishment to the skin, without feeling heavy or greasy.

A few drops applied to damp skin, and this light-weight oil absorbs quickly, leaving behind a healthy and dewy glow. I’ve been using this day and night and my sensitive, acne prone skin is in love! My skin looks brighter, less red and more plumped up! Definitely a cause for me to do my happy dance!
