Founder; Kristy Cimesa came across Sacha Inchi seed oil in 2009 to treat her son’s eczema. Impressed with the improvement it had, it became a staple for use on everything from dry skin, to sunburn and wrinkles.
Kristy partnered with friend Hannah Becker to develop the most Omega rich multi-purpose body oil on the market! The Sacha Inchi oil was infused with many other organic, omega rich oils such as Argan, Rosehip and Avocado to create a unique blend with amazing skin penetration and a beautiful scent. This blend became ‘Omega Oil’ the hero product of their new company Botánico Vida (or ‘plant life’).
Botanico Vida source ingredients from organic, fair traded plants and through projects encouraging reforestation.
Excellent as a one-off treatment or used daily for a variety of causes – here are some favourite suggestions:
Use Botanico Vida Omega Oil daily to rebuild the hydration, collagen and elasticity ageing skin may be losing (as it’s rich in Omega 3 and other fatty acids) by applying liberally to clean skin (after showering / bathing) and allowing oil to sink in. For best results, apply twice daily in the morning and evening to clean skin and use for a minimum of three months for improvements.
Botanico Vida Omega Oil contains high levels of Omega 3 and Vitamin E to help reduce redness, balance skin tone (such as hyperpigmentation or discolouration due to scarring), soothe sensitive skin and help soften sun damaged skin. Ideal to use on scars after surgery. Simply rub the Omega Oil into the scar tissue (you can also add the Omega Balm on top to act as a barrier and lock the Omega Oil in). Always wait until a wound (for example an open wound) has healed and closed before using the oil. Use twice daily for as long as required.
Botanico Vida Omega Oil offers a clinically proven, 100% natural skincare solution for helping the skin stretch during pregnancy. Independent trials of Omega Oil showed that regular daily use gave a 45% improvement in skin elasticity, so crucial in times of rapid growth and without any chemical nasties you (and your bump!) can feel reassured! Plus, it helps reduce appearance of existing stretch marks. Simply apply daily throughout your pregnancy by massaging your bump and any stretch marks. Keep using after pregnancy to retain skin elasticity.
When Botanico Vida Omega Oil is rubbed into the skin the powerful blend of omega 3,6 & 9 nutrients delivers the skin’s building blocks directly into the epidermis. This helps to regenerate, hydrate and nourish dry or depleted skin (from environmental factors, frequent travel or air-conditioning) and reduce redness, scarring and inflammation. Clinical trials showed a 20% rise in skin hydration after two weeks use. 96% of users’ skin felt softer and more hydrated. Rub Omega Oil lightly over the skin from head to toe – it absorbs quickly like a dry oil so does not need a great deal of massage.
After shaving your skin, apply Botanico Vida Omega Oil all over the legs for a luxurious soothing and calming treat for the smoothest, silkiest legs…ever!
The natural, luxurious and effective goodness from the Botanico Vida Omega Oil works brilliantly as an overnight facial treat for your skin! Apply your serums and night cream first and then finally apply Botanico Vida Omega Oil over the top. Gently massaging into the face, neck and décolletage.
Botanico Vida Omega Oil is suitable for face, body and all skin types including babies and children. Botanico Vida Omega Oil is hypo-allergenically tested and a completely natural, gentle and safe choice for your child’s skin. Warm the oil in your hands first and the gently rub into the skin to soothe.
Perfect for baby massage thanks to the delicate aromatics and warming effect. Simply take a few pumps of the oil and warming it up in your hands, gently apply over babies’ clean skin in soft, soothing strokes.
Every evening, wash baby’s hair in a mild baby shampoo and pat dry with a towel before gently massaging the Oil into the head with your fingers
As soon as the blisters and scabs have gone, gently massage the scars twice daily with Botanico Vida Omega Oil.
