Touch of luxury – Rejuvenating Body Elixir – By So Pure Skincare
The Elixir is packed with nature’s finest, nutrient-rich plant seed oils to nourish and replenish. The active ingredients include organic Prickly Pear seed oil – one of the most expensive of plant oils because of the intensely laborious process of harvesting the fruit of this spiky cactus. The fruit is picked by hand, and the seeds separated from the pulp, dried and finally cold pressed. It requires half a ton of fruit to yield just 1 litre of the precious oil.
But it’s worth it: this highly-prized oil is considered a panacea in the fight against skin ageing. It contains more tocopheral (vitamin E) than any other beauty oil on the market, it protects against free radicals, restores firmness and tones the skin, as well as reducing dark spots and scars. Packed with nutrients, this is a very fine oil that absorbs fast, leaving skin silky soft.
This is partnered with organic Argan oil, also rich in oleic and linoleic acid (omegas) and vitamin E, to improve skin elasticity and promote cell renewal – making the Elixir ideal for dry skin, scars or stretch marks and other blemishes. Together with warming Sesame oil, velvety smooth organic Hemp oil for more even skin tone, and super-light Thistle seed oil rich in omega 6 – these oils promote skin healing, and contribute valuable essential fatty acids and lipids for a truly indulgent feel.
The oils are combined with therapeutic plant extracts of soothing Arnica flowers, stimulating tissue repair. The natural anti-inflammatory properties of Arnica will ease sore, aching muscles as you massage in the oil after a long day. Polyphenol-rich Rosa Damascena flower extract calms and soothes any irritated areas. Organic Carrot extract, also rich in antixoidants, protects against skin ageing and contributes to the wonderfully jewel-like amber colour of this Elixir.
The Elixir is beautifully scented with exotic and sensual Tiare Flower extract (rarely used in commercial perfumery because of its high value) and a skillful mix of skin-healing essential oils including relaxing Neroli, uplifting Jasmine, romantic Rose Otto, all balanced by the seductive mellowness of Sandalwood.
Shake well before use. Use 4-5 pumps and massage all over the body, concentrating on the drier areas. Due to the inclusion of Arnica, avoid using on broken skin.

This is a small family-run business based in Warwickshire, manufacturing British-made skincare products in small batches, and founded by Geeta Sood. The So Pure Skincare brand came about when Geeta made a mostly organic and 100% natural balm to treat her firstborn son’s eczema when he was 6 months old, in preference to the chemical-laden creams her doctor had suggested. This proved such as success, soon this balm was managing and healing another family member’s eczema, and friends were begging for samples. Geeta had always had a passion for skincare and this led to her studying Holistic Cosmetology and the creation of the So Pure range three years later.
