" A study showed that daily application of cacay oil within a four week period reduced the appearance of wrinkles by 45%."
Cacay oil is becoming increasingly popular among face oil devotees. Compared to rosehip oil with its pungent aroma, cacay oil has a very subtle, hardly noticeable aroma. This quick absorbing oil is very nourishing yet very light on the skin. Cacay oil is suitable for all skin types. What are the skin benefits of cacay oil?
Cacay Oil Helps Slow Down Skin Ageing
Cacay oil is the richest source of linoleic acid, widely known as omega 6 essential fatty acid. Contradictory to the popular belief that the excess consumption of omega 6 fatty acid triggers inflammation in the body; a recent study by University of Eastern Finland found that omega 6 fatty acid helps reduce the risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes, the two diseases that have been closely associated with chronic inflammation. Involving 1,287 participants age 42 to 60, this study suggests that eating foods rich in linoleic acid will reduce inflammation in the body.
Inflammation is one of the major factors in skin ageing. It causes premature skin damage which triggers the formation of wrinkles, lines and pigmentation spots. How cacay oil reduces the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation spots?

Cacay Oil Reduces Wrinkles by 45%
A clinical study in Germany showed that daily application of cacay oil within a 4 week period reduced the appearance of wrinkles by 45%. This study found that cacay oil boosts the skin's hydration and elasticity while also visibly smooths out and firms up the appearance of the skin.
To reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face, gently massage 4 to 6 drops of Bio-Collagen Face Oil into freshly-cleansed face and neck after serum every morning and evening. Follow with your usual moisturiser. Alternatively, mix a few drops of this nourishing face oil with a small amount of moisturiser then massage into the skin.

Cacay Oil Helps Prevent and Reduce Pigmentation Spots
In addition to reducing the look of wrinkles and lines, Bio-Collagen Face Oil lighten the appearance of pigmentation spots. A study published in the Archives of Dermatological Research showed that linoleic acid, the main component of cacay oil reduces the excess production of melanin pigment in the skin.
The exposure to UV rays is known to trigger inflammation in the skin which causes premature damage. The ability of linoleic acid to reduce inflammation and prevent the excess production of melanin pigment makes cacay oil one of the best anti-ageing skincare ingredients.
With up to 85% linoleic acid content, cacay oil is the alternative to the conventional skin-brightening ingredients such as kojic acid, retinol, tretinoin (trans retinoic acid), niacinamide, arbutin and hydroquinone. However, for best results, use Bio-Collagen Face Oil in conjunction with Antioxidant Youthful Essence (for all skin types) or Bio-Collagen Serum (for all skin types including hypersensitive skin). As always, apply the serum first, follow with the oil and moisturiser. For those who don't like to use a face oil, either of these two serums can be used effectively on its own to reduce the pigmentation spots and all other signs of ageing.
“ This might be costly but its natural collagen boosting properties are more than worth it!”
