Key Ingredients Found in Motives® for La La Liquid Foundation: Sesame Oil A naturally occurring oil from sesame seeds that slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. Sesame oil is primarily composed of oleic, linoleic, palmitic and stearic acids that help keep the skin hydrated. Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil Safflower seed oil is obtained by pressing the seeds of the carthamus tinctorius plant and is rich in linoleic acid, one of the essential fatty acids. Safflower seed oil acts as a protective barrier on the skin, keeping your skin moisturized, and imparting a smooth and soft appearance to your skin.
