Natural Brand Spotlight: UMA Oils

If you want the ultimate oil experience, you need to try Uma.

Crafted with love, care and superb attention to detail, Uma’s oils are the legacy of five generations of family that perfected the formulas to ensure maximum efficiency and incredible results. Founder Shrankhla Holecek was inspired by her beloved aunt Uma, who turned to thousands of years of Ayurvedic tradition to create skin care relished by royalty (and, in modern times, relied upon by such prestigious brands as Tom Ford and Estee Lauder). 

Uma's philosophy is what truly sets them apart. The botanicals used in the oils are looked after by master craftsmen that pick only the best seeds and cultivate them in a 100-acre meadow of the most nutritious soil. Each plant is harvested no more than twice before replanting. This creates a smaller yield, but ensures that each batch is of the most excellent quality and purity that guarantee potency and beneficial results. 

Uma oils are handcrafted in small batches to preserve their integrity. Each harvest is personally and carefully looked over, and only the most advanced technology is used to extract the oils.

This results in a product that has been painstakingly crafted, inspected and stamped with a seal of excellence and luxury. Each oil is a combination of the purest botanicals and tried and true innovation.

And a little goes a long way, with only a few drops of any oil required to make an impact. The oils have been tested by over a thousand women, with 93% of them seeing results in brightness and clarity as well as a reduction in fine lines. (Whoa!)

Absolute Anti Aging Body Oil

Silky, glowing skin should not be solely relegated to the face. Uma's Absolute Anti Aging Body Oil provides intense hydration, locking in moisture to keep skin smooth, soft, protected and deeply moisturized.

Sandalwood, Rose and Neroli oils provide not only hydration but also protect against free radicals (unstable atoms that degrade collagen and elastin) and other environmental stressors. This is a rich formula that is nonetheless also very lightweight and quickly absorbing, so you don't have to worry about feeling or looking greasy and shiny.

This formula is appropriate for all skin types. It also provides a unique and heavenly aromatherapy experience. Add a few drops to your bath and fully immerse yourself in the healing benefits of this incredible oil. 

Ultimate Brightening Face Oil

As we age, wrinkles and fine lines begin to become more noticeable, but so do dark spots and areas of hyperpigmentation that are a result of years of sun exposure. These spots can make skin look dull, rough and older than its years. With Uma's Ultimate Brightening Face Oil, dark spots become less obvious as they begin to fade away with regular use.

Sandalwood and Rose oils provide hydration and nourishment, while Orange and Neroli oils, rich in Vitamin C, and Frankincense help brighten and even out skin tone for a clearer, much more vibrant complexion. Pomegranate oil serves as a base to accelerate absorption of the other active ingredients for a truly efficient blend.

To use, massage 2-3 drops between your palms and apply in a circular motion over all necessary areas. Use diligently morning and night for best results.

Deeply Clarifying Face Oil

Nobody attributes acne treatments with luxury, but that’s exactly what Uma’s Deeply Clarifying Face Oil is. (It may seem counterintuitive to apply more oil onto already oily skin, but the truth is, certain types of oils actually help reduce blemishes.)

This sumptuous formula ensures that acne is held at bay while maintaining hydration. The blend boasts Clove and Tea Tree oils (tea tree is particularly known for having antibacterial properties) that work together to reduce the appearance of pimples and prevent them from forming. Lavender and Clary Sage oils regulate oil production, keeping it under control, while also providing much-needed hydration to prevent skin from over-drying. You’ll feel amazing as you see your skin look clarified and smooth.
