Needless to say extracting oils from an apricot kernel or watermelon seed is no easy feat. But will still insist on using them in our MVO Body Oil, Rose+Neroli because they return elasticity and pliability to the skin by either staying on the skin’s surface or being absorbed into the lower layers of the epidermis to act as a lubricant.
KEY INGREDIENTSApricot Kernel Oil
This oil is rich in oleic and linoleic acids, plus fatty acids that contain vitamins A and E, and other essential nutrients for the skin. Linoleic acids provide moisturizing properties that plump cells and protect against moisture loss.
Squalene (from olives) closely resembles sebum which is the protective oil secreted by the skin. This very emollient, healing oil penetrates into layers of the stratum corneum to reduce flaking and soothe and soften cracked skin. It also provides essential nutrients that encourage cell turnover and moisture retention.
Watermelon seed oil
Thanks to its light texture and moisturizing capabilities, watermelon seed oil is highly desirable in body oil formulations. It’s highly nourishing and absorptive and even helps the body to eliminate toxins through the skin, all without leaving a greasy feel. Rich in EFAs that restore skin’s elasticity, it’s excellent for mature skin.

"I highly recommend these products, they are made from high quality ingredients and aren't cheap but they do what Marie says they'll do. My skin is fair and sensitive plus I live in the Mojave Desert so if MVO wasn't as advertised I would have known quickly. So very happy I followed the link that day in the Chronicle. If you decide to use MVO do your self a favor and take pictures of your face before you start using them, then again in three months..." -- Jackie Pelfrey

As we age, our skin produces less of the oils it needs to lubricate and protect itself. And your face isn’t the only victim. Any area of your body that gets a lot of wear and tear is likely to develop rough, dry patches and increased slackness.
Applying essential fatty acid rich oils, rather than lotions, to the body is the best way to boost the body’s capacity to retain moisture. Oils smooth rough patches and even heal cracked skin. These fatty acids, called lipids, are part of the environmental protection barrier that prevent outside elements, among them sun, wind and pollution, from assaulting the skin and compromising its integrity. Oils also work wonders for restoring elasticity and keeping your skin hydrated.
At Marie Veronique Organics, we prefer oils to lotions because the small lipid particles penetrate past the epidermal barrier to deliver nutrients to deeper layers of the skin. This means that a very high concentration of therapeutic ingredients can reach the dermal layer where skin renewal takes place.
Most people get a bit nervous when they hear the words oil and skin in the same sentence. But there’s no reason to get nervous. In fact, waxes, not oils, are the major cause of skin congestion. Research indicates that a compromised lipid barrier may be at the root of skin problems such as eczema, acne and wrinkles.
Our Philosophy"Intelligent Ingredients" is more than just a tagline. It’s the overriding principle that guides every formulation at Marie Veronique Organics. That’s because science tells us that what goes on your skin ultimately penetrates your skin and goes into your body. The right ingredients can do a world of good and the wrong ones quite the opposite. Before an ingredient gets added to a product we make sure it does the right thing, efficiently and without causing harm to you or the planet.
Using our deep scientific understanding of the aging process, we turn to nature for potent ingredients that will counter—and even reverse—the effects of aging skin. Our ingredients are selected to penetrate deep within the skin, working exactly where the aging action happens, rather than simply staying on the surface. And above all else, we stand by our philosophy that toxic ingredients, harmful chemicals, artificial agents and preservatives are not the solution for making your skin look and feel younger.
It’s probably no surprise that our entire company is dedicated to sustainability. Wherever possible we use natural, organic and fair trade ingredients, packaged in 100% recyclable materials. And we source them as close to our Mill Valley headquarters as possible to keep our footprint super small.
Shake well before use and keep in a cool place. Massage onto the body while skin is still moist. If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician.
