Organic Flax Seed Glycerin

A Magic Ingredient for Skin & Hair

Christina Moss Naturals organic flax glycerin is far superior to other glycerin products. Why? Because it’s 100% derived from organic flax seeds. That means it’s 100% palm-free and 100% vegan friendly. But what makes this product a real showstopper is its versatility and performance.

Vegetable Glycerin Derived from 100% Organic Flax Seeds - Box & BottleWhat Makes Our Glycerin Different?

First, it’s important to understand that conventional derivatives of glycerin are usually from:

    1. GMO Oils
    2. Palm Oils
    3. Animal Fats

If you already use my products, you most likely have a concern about genetically altered foods and cosmetics. If you care about the Earth (which I believe my customers do) you probably buy nothing that contains palm oil because you understand farming the palm tree forests is destroying our environment. And if you object to smearing animal products on your skin, you probably avoid ingredients with animal fats.

In stark contrast to the conventional glycerin above, we derive our glycerin only from organic flax seed. This environmentally friendly product has clear, sweet and odorless qualities, along with an impressive list of practical uses. Read on and discover more about this ingredient, including how it can naturally provide enormous benefits to skin and hair.

What is Cosmetic Glycerin used for?

What is Vegetable Glycerin?

In a nutshell, you can use flax glycerin in lip masks (add sugar or salt and gently scrub your lips), hair masks (put some conditioner in your hand and add some glycerin) and face masks (try adding some to a face mask). It can also enhance moisturizer by mixing them in the palm of your hand and applying the moisturizer as usual. Notice the dewy glow it gives your skin. Add some to body lotion for the same dewy glow all over. Glycerin is an emollient, so it softens and moisturizes. Because of its natural sweetness, skin will readily absorb its qualities, especially when used in a face mask and combined with other raw ingredients. It can really help boost the quality of your skin. Our glycerin is pure, gentle, and safe for most skin types and is appropriate for everyday use.

What are the Benefits of Vegetable Glycerin?

What Are Some Benefits of Vegetable Glycerin?

• Moisturizes Skin
• Makes Skin soft and Supple
• Can Help Heal Damaged Skin
• Can Help Heal Fine Lines and Wrinkles
• It Protects Skin from Environmental Toxins
• Improves Skin and Hair Health and Condition
• Controls Infections
• When Stored Correctly, has a Long and Stable Shelf Life
• It’s Non-toxic
• Non-Irritating
• Hypoallergenic – In Fact, Allergic Reactions are Rare
• Provides Lasting Hydration
• Can Help Clear Up Problem Skin
• Does Not Strip Natural Skin Oils

Reduces Hair Frizz

 When combined with a hair formulation, vegetable glycerin can reduce dryness, flyaway hair, and frizz, leaving your hair extra soft and shiny.

Smooths Skin

Flax glycerin can smooth out the appearance of skin and improve the complexion by filling in pores and fine lines where it goes to work rejuvenating these areas of visible aging.

Evens Out Skin Complexion

Using vegetable glycerin can lighten your skin tone, diminishing the visibility of dark spots.

How To Use It?

You can directly use vegetable glycerin on our skin or hair as a moisturizer. Use it as a base and add a small amount of essential oils and a carrier oil. This makes for a fantastic massage oil.

What Our Customers Say

Storing Instructions

Our vegetable glycerin is packed in an amber bottle that provides UV protection. It has a very impressive shelf life. But to really keep it long-lasting, it is best stored at room temperature, away from sunlight.

~Christina Moss

NOTE: Allergic reactions to glycerin are quite rare, which is why it’s used as a negative control in allergy scratch tests. However, (obligatory disclaimer) we don’t recommend using it on broken or cut skin, or if skin is super sensitive, without first consulting with a dermatologist. In the unlikely event that redness or rash should develop (or if any non-optimum condition arises), discontinue use and contact your dermatologist.

Rosehip Seed Oil

Rosehip Seed Oil By Christina Moss NaturalsRosehip seed oil is an organic cold-pressed formula extracted from Rosa Moschata. This special ingredient contains natural skin-nourishing vitamins and fatty acids that help your skin become smoother, more hydrated and radiant.

The oil comprises linoleic and linolenic acids, pro-vitamin A, and essential fatty acids to target photoaging symptoms and promote fresh, healthy, and more youthful skin.

Nature included antioxidants and the moisturizing benefits of fatty acids. This remarkable oil contains Vitamins A, E, C, along with the omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. These encourage skin cell turnover and elasticity, while improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation (dark patches on the skin).

Christina Moss Naturals Rosehip Seed Oil is entirely safe. It is famous for its healing properties. It penetrates deep within the skin layers to stimulate collagen, rejuvenate the tissues, and moisturize your skin. Thus, Rosehip seed oil is an ideal product that can do wonders to your everyday skincare routine.

Benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil 


Rosehip oil keeps your skin super hydrated as it contains a wealth of essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. These fatty acids increase the strength of the skin cell wall, which helps cells hold on to water. This oil has the power to penetrate deep within the skin layers where all the natural benefits mentioned above can work their magic.


As mentioned, Rosehip Seed oil is an excellent natural moisturizer for all skin types. It will lock in your skin’s natural hydration. Thus, it keeps your skin moisturized for long hours.

Boosts Collagen Formation 

Rosehip oil enhances your collagen production with Vitamins A and C. It inhibits enzymes that break down collagen which will increase skin elasticity and firmness.

Exfoliates and Brightens Skin Rosehip Oil by Christina Moss Naturals

Rosehip oil encourages cell turnover using Vitamin A or retinol. Similarly, Vitamin C also assists in cell regeneration, along with boosting overall radiance. In this way, Rosehip oil helps reduce dullness, giving you glowing skin.

Reduces Inflammation 

Because it is rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, Rosehip Seed Oil may reduce inflammation, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, etc. Likewise, it contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant famous for its anti-inflammatory effects.

Reduces Scars And Fine Lines

With these antioxidants and fatty acids, Rosehip Seed oil is effective in treating wounds and scars. It enhances the natural process of cell regeneration, reducing spots and fine lines. In this way, this oil helps you heal quickly with less chance of leaving scars.

Combats Acne 

Rosehip oil can be helpful for acne-prone skin. It has both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that can fight acne. Consult your dermatologist before using this to treat acne.

Reduces Hyperpigmentation 

The rich amount of Vitamin A, including retinoids in Rosehip oil can help reduce hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. Likewise, it contains melanin-reducing properties.

Brightens your Skin 

Rosehip oil lightens your skin tone with lycopene and beta carotene. These compounds help brighten up your skin, contributing to a more beautiful and even skin tone.

How to Use It? 

Since rosehip seed oil is a dry oil, we suggest using it each night at the end of your skincare routine following all your water-based products.

Rosehip oil is useful as a carrier oil (a base oil) for essential oils. So, use rosehip oil on its own, or add in a few drops of essential oil. You can also add some this is oil to your favorite moisturizer. To do that, simply combine the two in a separate bowl, mix and apply to the skin.

Apply the rosehip oil once or twice a day, just like you would use moisturizer. However, you may need to contact your health care provider to confirm the dosage necessary to treat wounds or skin conditions like eczema.

Storing Instructions 

Rosehip oil is a cold-pressed oil. That means no chemicals were used to extract the oil from the rose hips. We package our fresh, cold-pressed Rosehip oil in amber glass jars. These help shield the product from exposure to light. We chose glass instead of plastic to help ensure purity. Keep this product fresh by storing it in a cool dry location with the cap tightly sealed. For optimum freshness and increased shelf life, consider storing it in a cosmetic refrigerator.

Introducing CMN Products to Your Self-Care Routines

Using Products for the First Time

Christina Moss Naturals receives many questions about our products. Since we cannot be with you to provide custom advice for your needs, we want the information below to guide you.

Patch Testing

Perform a patch test with each new product. If you have sensitivities, and/or past or current issues when trying a new product, please perform a patch test first. Once the product delivers and you have confirmed that it is a good fit, use it as part of your routine. If it is not, then discontinue use.

Begin using a small amount of the new product for at least a couple of days before adding another new product, if you plan to do so. Do the patch test again and repeat the above. One’s skin, hair, or scalp can be sensitive to combinations of ingredients, not only a single ingredient or product.

Using a tool or other product that is abrasive, too alkaline, or too acidic can cause irritation. Making the application of a new product seem like it is the wrong fit. Give a new product the chance to work well for you, if it can. Do not use abrasive, harsh tools, or products.

Cooler Water

Please rinse well with cooler water for skin and hair care. Hot water can put skin, scalp, and/or hair in an irritated or dry condition.

Changes Happen So Take Notice

Review your self-care routines to ensure they fit what you need now. Needs can change in different seasons, during travel, a different diet, other events in life, and with age.

Face and Hair Care

For our concentrated formulas, mix with water first before applying to spread the product where it is needed most first. Our facial wash, shampoo, and hair mask are our top three concentrated formulas. A little goes a long way.

When shampooing, be as gentle as needed for your scalp and hair.

Our hair mask is very rich. Apply very little on thoroughly wet hair and only on the ends, when using for the first time. Our hair mask could be used well as a pre-shampoo mask, depending upon your preferences. Increase the amount you use as you understand how it works with your hair. Be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly with cooler water.

You Have Choices

Christina Moss Naturals offers choices. If one isn’t your favorite, try another:

  • We have two choices of moisturizers and two choices of toners to balance skin.
  • We also have three choices for cleansing skin all over, our glycerin soap and two body washes.

We Appreciate You

Christina Moss Naturals’ formulas are unique and with most of our products, a little goes a long way.

We want your experience in skincare and hair care to be the best for you.

Essential Oils vs. Carrier Oils

What is a Carrier Oil?

A carrier oil is an oil derived from nuts or kernels or seeds of plants.

Here is a list of common carrier oils, but there are many more:

  • Avocado
  • Olive
  • Coconut
  • Grapeseed
  • Almond
  • Walnut
  • Etc.

Why is it called a Carrier Oil?

It is called a “carrier oil” because it can carry other ingredients into the skin. This can be beneficial. For example, carrier oils are used in aromatherapy, or for massage or for moisturizing the skin. If you add a little essential oil to a carrier oil, it will carry the essential oil into the skin. Each carrier oil has a unique quality unto itself.

What is the difference between a carrier oil and an essential oil?

Carrier oils are made by crushing and spinning the seeds, or nuts or kernels of plants in order to release the oils within. Cold-pressed oils are best because they contain more nutrients than heat pressed oils or oils obtained by chemical extraction. We don’t like applying chemicals to the skin, so we recommend using “cold-pressed” oils only.

An essential oil is very different from a carrier oil. An essential oil is the pure essence of the leaf or bark or root of a plant, and it is very highly concentrated. That’s why the essence or smell is so strong. In fact, essential oils are so concentrated and so strong that they must be stored in glass or metal containers only. They can not be stored in plastic because they will break down the plastic and leak out over time. They also differ from carrier oils in that they are volatile, which means they will evaporate rapidly, so it’s important to keep them tightly capped. Carrier oils, on the other hand, do not evaporate.

A little bit of essential oil goes a very long way, but it MUST be combined with a lot of carrier oil before it’s applied to the skin. It’s never a good idea to apply essential oil directly to your skin as it can seriously irritate your skin or cause other reactions.

How much essential oil should be added to the carrier oil?

The best combination is 2% essential oil to 98% carrier oil.  A quick and easy formula is to add 12 drops of essential oil to one ounce of carrier oil.


One has to be careful in handling essential oils. They must be kept from children and away from eyes and mucous membranes.  And one should never use an essential oil or a carrier oil if allergic to the substance from which it is produced.

But when used responsibly, essential oils are really special and can be very beneficial. They are distilled down to the pure essence of the plant itself and because of that, they each have a special and unique quality that can benefit a person’s health or well being or mood in different ways. There is a vast amount of information about the specific qualities of each essential oil, which is a study all in itself, and worth learning more about.

New Product Announcement — Rose Toner with Vitamin C


I want to announce our first new product of 2019 — It’s a Rose Toner with vitamin C added.  This is a super anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, skin renewal product that will greatly benefit your daily skin care routine.

I’ve included only super powerful skin-supporting ingredients. Each ingredient was chosen for a very specific purpose which is to help prevent the appearance of premature aging and boost and beautify your skin.  Here’s what’s on the ingredients list and what each ingredient does for the face:

Organic Aloe Vera — Aloe gently soothes tired and stressed skin which is an amazing quality, but perhaps more importantly, Aloe is such an effective skin healer that doctors prescribe it for burn patients to help prevent scaring and speed skin recovery.

Organic Witch Hazel — This is a plant (a woody bush actually) which is high in tannins and so it is an astringent — and that means it tightens skin and closes pores. This ingredient is an anti-inflammatory, it actually kills bacteria and it has other anti-microbial qualities.

Organic Rose Water — Besides the fact that it smells great and makes the skin silky soft, the beneficial qualities of rose water are legendary. It is known to soothe skin, reduce redness, heal scars and cuts, enhance mood and it can even help relieve headaches.

Organic Neroli Water — Neroli is from orange tree blossoms and has the ability to renew and regenerate new skin. It’s another anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory ingredient which has the added benefit of balancing skin moisture so that dryer skin feels more hydrated while oily skin is also benefited.

Organic Cucumber extract — We’ve all seen the ladies with cucumber slices over their eyes!  That’s because cucumber has a cooling effect and it is well known for reducing under-eye bags.

Sodium Ascorbic Phosphate — Vitamin C is a super anti-oxidant and it’s necessary to help produce new collagen. Normally vitamin C loses its potency when fluid is added, but this is a very specific form of vitamin C which maintains it’s potency for a much longer period of time while suspended in a liquid medium.

Organic Vegetable Glycerin — Glycerin is a non-greasy moisturizing agent which leaves skin soft and supple while treating wrinkles and fine lines.

In developing this product I included the finest quality and most useful ingredients . . . and nothing else. As usual, I only used the good stuff. And just like everything else in the Christina Moss Naturals line, I left out all harmful chemical preservatives, fillers and colorants.

I hope you try my new Rose Toner with Vitamin C. If you do, let me know what you think.

All the best to you,

Christina Moss
