    Rice bran oil has deep-moisturizing capabilities due to its vitamin E and fatty acid content, which penetrate deep into skin to promote hydration [1]. Jojoba oil is frequently added to skin products as it helps target the signs of skin aging as well as the occurrence of skin irritation [2]. Evening primrose oil has moisturizing properties that are beneficial for the skin [2]. Herbs such as lavender have soothing properties that lessen redness, irritation, and itching [4].
    Anti-aging [1-3], skin cleansing, hydration, rejuvenation, and moisturization [1-4]
    Rice bran oil is a good source of vitamin E and vitamin B, key nutrients that support tighter, firmer skin firm, and sustained hydration. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles [1]. It also contains squalene, which is well-known for its ability to help the skin look fresher and younger. Rice bran oil also contains antioxidants that help brighten the skin and promotes a more even skin tone by reducing the appearance of dark spots and targeting environmental stressors that may damage the skin [1]. Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. It also boosts the body's natural wound healing pathways and it enhances the absorption of other topical agents [2]. Evening primrose oil has been shown to heighten skin moisture, firmness, and elasticity, while lessening transepidermal water loss (TEWL), redness, skin fatigue, and roughness [3]. Lavender helps lessen skin irritation from infections and insect bites due to its analgesic properties [4]. It is also well-known for its ability to promote relaxation. Note regarding the Strength, Results, and Safety: Rice bran oil is the 7th ingredient, evening primrose oil is the 11th, jojoba oil is the 12th, and lavandula is the last listed ingredient. In addition, none of the percentages are listed for any of the oils so strength cannot be properly determined. This indicates that the cleansing and makeup removing activity is mostly attributed to other ingredients in this product, while the oils may offer hydration and moisturization to a lesser degree. In terms of safety, Phenoxyethanol has an EWG rating of 4; all of the other ingredients have EWG ratings of 1.
