Sesame oil is known for being high in linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid, we get this type of oil through our diet as our bodies are unable to produce it. It helps protect and restore the barrier function which our skin needs to help prevent dryness. Linoleic acid also helps make up the ceramides in out skin which are crucial for soft supple skin. Unfortunately as we age we lose ceramides in our skin which increases the risk of skin dryness. Sesame oil is also contains phytosterols which can help dry skin. Lastly, sesame oil contains zinc which is needed for collagen production.

Any residual ethylene oxide or 1,4-dioxane in a finished cosmetic base would be present in small quantities. Polysorbate 20 is not expected to be toxic to the environment.

Review of Ever Skin Care Overnight Facial Cellular Renewal Oil -How to apply this oil
According to the Ever’s website, this oil should be used about 3 times a week at night after washing the skin. I use this oil and can tell you that 3 drops is enough. Pat it into your skin especially the trouble areas like crows feet and forehead creases. You really need just a few drops, doing more will waste the product and give you a greasy feel. As with any retinol product, Ever’s overnight oil should just be used at nighttime to avoid sun sensitivity.
My suggestion for nighttime oils or any product used at nighttime is to place them on your face at least 30 minutes before going to bed. If you place it on your skin then go to be some of the product will wipe off on your pillow. In addition, you could potentially get the product in your eyes increasing the risk of irritation that could otherwise be avoided.
