Pinus Succinefera (Amber) Oil
Amber oil's restorative effects can mostly be attributed to its high content of succinic acid, a natural component of plant and animal tissues. The salt contained in succinic acid (succinate) is an active substance that promotes the process of cellular respiration and intercellular energy. The increase in cellular metabolism helps to detoxify and restore optimal skin health. Succinic acid is also a powerful antioxidant that helps to combat free radicals. In conjunction with its antioxidant properties, succinic acid is also responsible for amber oil's antimicrobial properties. Together, the antioxidant and antimicrobial attributes of amber oil can help protect the skin from environmental stressors while providing rejuvenating benefits.
