We had a chance to try the Avanti Rx skincare line and we were super impressed by it. All of the products go on easily and absorb quickly. Our skin feels smooth and the tone is exceptionally even. A stubborn trouble spot of rosacea has even faded. Bonus: everything is vegan and there are sales on a few of the sets here: http://www.shopavantirx.com/shop/.

Located in Canada, Loa is a Leaping Bunny certified brand that specializes in creating skin care to help heal the underlying causes of a wide variety of skin conditions. Its products are vegan and created with a proprietary infusing process that naturally extracts compounds found in whole plants for a potent, high performance formula.

Currently, Loa's signature product is the Miracle Oil. It combines over 15 organic botanicals to deeply hydrate, nourish, and calm inflammatory skin conditions. Ingredients include evening primrose oil, safflower oil infused with herbs, chia seed oil, and rosemary antioxidant. The blend of herbs in conjunction with the essential oil blend of tea tree, frankincense, and helichrysum, create a very herbal and original scent. In addition, all ingredients are organic. Enriched with omega-3 and 5 essential fatty acids and cell-regenerating phytonutrients, these components are clinically verified to restore the skin's moisture barrier and significantly improve acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Interestingly, most people with inflammatory skin conditions have an omega-6 fatty acid deficiency, and this product helps restore the balance in the skin. In addition to helping with a wide variety of skin conditions, this Miracle Oil is suitable for all skin types. It is light weight, absorbs quickly, and thoroughly nourishes the skin. Another great aspect of this product is the container, which only dispenses small amounts of the oil so it is easy to avoid using too much. A little goes a long way. With a very reasonable price point, Miracle Oil is a great option for individuals struggling with skin issues to check out as well as individuals interested in a high-quality skin serum/oil.
