SAFFRON AND LOTUS UNDER-EYE OIL FROM


VEDA EARTH
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and ability
to regenerate thus making it thinner. One of the
first places to show ageing is the skin around the
under-eye areas. That is why it is imperative to
start caring for this area as early as possible. One
such way to do it is with Vedaearth’s Saffron And
Lotus Under-Eye Oil.
A combination of naturally extracted Saffron,
Lotus, and Vetiver, this oil is completely free from
paraben, artificial fragrance and petroleum.
