After dealing with a serious skin condition for most of her life, co-founder of Pacific Specialty Oils, Patricia Kopas tapped her master chemist husband for a new type of lotion that would stave off crepey skin and renew the balance of the skin’s oil and moisture.
What they created was Hide The Years Gold Body Gold ($220), an ultra-luxurious body cream oil with red palm oleins, which is rich in tocotrienols, a type of vitamin E that is known for its anti-aging actions (as well as many health benefits like lowering cholesterol and blood pressure).
Because they understand that average body lotions are packed with water that evaporates and leaves behind only potentially harmful chemicals, the Kopases created their creamed oil to contain only natural ingredients like the red palm oleins, as well as natural antioxidants, CoQ10 and beta and alpha carotenes. Their goal was to make a creamed oil that restores the body’s natural oil that is lost through aging, and fights skin diseases and dry skin while reversing or preventing unsightly crepey skin.
The result is a mildly sweet-smelling cream that melts on contact, leaving a light sheen that soon absorbs into the skin. I gave it a try, well, everywhere, but paid special attention to a pesky patch of eczema and my dry heels, elbows and knees.
The following morning, I was rewarded with softer-than-ever skin that was supple and far less irritated. With repeated use, my skin seems to drink it in and I can see the improvements building over time. What a lucky pot of gold it is!
