Lightening skin spots, smoothing
Delta-5 is better than I thought, I’m amazed! I can’t tell you how many products we test, that is just another product for the shelf. With that said this product has definitely smoothed out an area by my mouth that I was starting to worry about; and it was the only item I was using for the last two weeks. I can see a definite change in my skin’s appearance and I think some spots are lightening. Is that for real? Does this also get spots to lighten? I know they are normally visible but not anymore. What a find!!!!! I’ll be honest, I never thought this would do what it’s doing. I keep asking myself, Did I put something else on? Cause this is pretty different looking.
Skin Inc. Magazine is the leading industry publication for day spa, medical spa, and wellness professionals
“In 12 hours after one overnight topical application on my psoriasis of the palm my plaque, redness, itchiness and minor abrasion were noticeably reduced.”
Follow up comment from G. Kent:
“I used the bottle I just purchased and after two days, it already helped my skin!!! Delta-5 is the best solution I have ever tried to improve my skin condition (palmar psoriasis). It is like going back in time!”
Very positive experience with Delta-5 oil from #1 Canadian Spa, great benefits for Melasma and Psoriasis
I was gifted a bottle of Delta-5® oil through a colleague from Bend Beauty and I fell in love with it! I’ve been in the skincare and wellness industry for 21 years and have had access to a number of various products so you can imagine how tough it is to impress me!
The oil is fantastic, unbelievable. My melasma (brown to gray-brown patches)1, is triggered by heat and sunlight. I now control my melasma with Delta-5 oil and do not need to attempt laser treatment. My melasma was hard to cover with makeup because of the rough skin texture, which is now smooth after Delta-5 oil. At first, I mixed Delta-5 oil with a facial cream and then I started to use it straight at night with no cream. My niece is now using it to control her psoriasis and eczema, with unbelievable results!
I would love to place an order to actually retail in our spa and of course, I want to also continue with the oil for my personal use. I’m thrilled to be representing the Delta-5 Oil!
1 Melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation have an underlying inflammatory component. Read here for a detailed explanation.
Delta-5 oil dramatically improves intense sunburn
I spent way to long in the sun kite surfing in the Turks and Caicos. I was badly sunburnt. That night, I put Delta-5 oil on my face, and by the next morning, my sunburn was literally gone.
Works for sunburn protections and skin calming
I was vacationing in Aruba. Actually, I took the oil and tried it there in the humid environment and it was just lovely! It worked so well against sun exposure and calming the skin – really wonderful. ….For clients who are dry, etc., this oil may be wonderful.
Delta-5 oil speeds up healing and down time following Halo Laser Treatment
I do a halo laser once a year. The downtime is typically about 5 days where you really don’t want to be seen in public. The last halo laser I did, I tried Delta-5 oil on my face before I went to bed. I couldn’t believe how great my face looked the next day. I actually called the technician to see if she used the same settings as the time before. The only thing I did differently was Delta-5 oil, and the downtime was nothing.
Note from SciaEssentials: Halo Laser is a new professional laser treatment that uses hybrid technology of a non-ablative laser, combined with an ablative laser. Using the non-ablative laser, this creates controlled zones of coagulation to chosen depths into the dermis that stimulate new collagen; and fractionally vaporizes (ablates) micro laser channels into the epidermis, addressing tone and texture of the skin, and potentially increasing collagen. Typical side effects include pain, redness, intense swelling lasting up to two days, heat, changes in coloration, and typically at least two days of stay-at-home down time.
Incredible healing properties of Delta-5 oil
I have to share this incredible product I discovered thanks to @naomiwhittel’s incredible docuseries “The Real Skinny on Fat.” I’ve been using it topically on my skin to help with the healing of my surgery scars, but I’ve also been using it on my scrapes, burns, even the fine lines and wrinkles on my face, and I feel like the effects are very quick and significantly noticeable!
My little wounds seem to heal at super speed with daily application, and without a doubt the pores of my face are smaller and smoother. In fact, I had one bizarre little blemish for 12 YEARS, for which I’ve tried pretty much everything to make it go away. To my extremely pleasant surprise, it started healing up after the 1st application of this oil, and was completely gone in a week! And if that weren’t enough, it seems the scars on my feet are barely visible only a few months post-surgery.
This stuff is 100% natural and organic conifer-derived oil made by a biochemist, doctor and lipid nutritionist with expertise in the field of fatty acids and cellular, molecular and whole body metabolism. I’m a believer! Apparently, his interest in combatting chronic inflammation led him to discover ancient sources of very particular conifer seed extracts which date back to the diets of indigenous populations (even dinosaurs!), and are no longer incorporated to any great extent into our Western diets.
I watched Dr. Alvin Berger’s interview on TRSOF and was so intrigued by what he had to say, I knew I had to try this oil (even though it’s way out of my budget.) ⬅️ As an upside, there are discounts for bundle orders, which helps. I’ve also decided investments like this in my health & wellbeing are worth it, especially when it’s something I can believe in and get behind based on my own personal results.
My daughter and I have been calling it “magic healing oil.” She feels like it helps her scrapes and scratches too! Highly recommended I love your product so much and have had such amazing results, HAD to tell everyone about it.
Thank you for sharing your genius with the world! Your magic oil has done incredible things for me and my family.
Celebrity calls Delta-5 oil a miracle for healing wounds and minimizing scars, and recommends use after micro needling and laser treatments
“I had a freak accident with a brand new essential oil bottle that broke and sliced my thumb. I used your [Delta-5] oil and it has really helped it heal faster and dissolving the scar!!! … It has also helped improve my daughter’s slight rashes who has very sensitive skin .. it is definitely helping! (April 7, 2020).
Lilly wrote to us again from her Official Instagram Account @lillymelgarofficial: “….Love you guys!!! I call Delta 5 my miracle oil as I put it on any and all wounds and I swear it heals faster and minimize scarring! … also great for healing after micro needling and laser treatments (June 19, 2020).”
Delta-5 oil wrinkle reduction after two days
I bought Delta 5 for my wife based off of a recommendation from a friend… and boy does she love it. Here are her words – It’s allergy season and my skin was horrible; very dry and sensitive and I had noticeable wrinkles under eyes. My husband bought this for me and I figured I’d give it a shot, I’ve tried everything else under the sun with little success… might as well give this a shot too. Literally after just one use my skin was noticeably more vibrant and invigorated; it absorbed quickly w/o leaving my skin greasy. It left my skin feeling very moisturized. After about 2 days I noticed a pretty significant improvement on the reduction of my wrinkles – and after 5 days they were basically gone. I can’t recommend this enough. I love it.
Stupendous Review from an Amazon customer (Fitness Legend Kathy Smith) REDNESS, DRYNESS, FINE LINES MINIMIZED; SKIN MORE SUPPLE, PLUMP, FIRM. 5 out of 5 stars on Amazon ★★★★★
“After a summer filled with travel and outdoor adventures, I returned home with very dry, reactive skin. No matter how much moisturizer I slathered on, nothing seemed to help. When a friend told me about SciaEssentials DELTA-5 Face Oil, I gave it a try as a last resort. It truly was a magic elixir! I started seeing results within the first week. Not only was the redness and dryness eliminated, but I also noticed that fine lines were minimized. My skin feels more supple, plump, and firm. I’m crazy about this product! It now is a staple in my daily routine.”
Kathy Smith is a fitness titan and legend who became famous for her workout videos during the 1980s and 1990s and continues to be an influential force shaping fitness trends today. (kathysmith.com) (wikipedia.org)
Delta-5 oil: a great new tool in the skin professional’s tool box
“The use of Delta-5 oil has been very therapeutic for my clients with aging, uneven, and poorly textured skin. I’ve been very happy with how it can calm and aid in faster healing post micro-needling procedures as well!
I would highly recommend Delta-5 for the treatment room for professionals and as an anti-aging product in a daily at home regimen.”
SciaEssentials note: just received this message from another large spa in Minneapolis, MN:
“We have performed three SkinPens with the oil a as post-care treatment. The clients did notice a comfort/soothing from the oil as well as providing a nice calming affect on the redness”
Great to see the professional community is embracing our Delta-5 oil!
Delta-5 oil minimizes pain and discomfort after Botox
I had some deep vertical wrinkle lines between my eyes. The owner of the spa gently encouraged me to do something about it, but I was reluctant to jump on the Botox bandwagon.
I now get Botox every few months, and the wrinkle lines are very much reduced. She also uses Botox to keep my eyelids from dropping down, which not only helps my appearance, but helps me with my dry eye syndrome.
Guys, the era of men accepting wrinkled, premature aged skin is over, and a youthful appearance is as important to the successful man, as it is to the ladies.
Jill at Skin Savvy has mastered the art of Botox injections–enough to accomplish the above goals, but not enough to give me a robotic look. After my Botox injections, I have started using SciaEssentials Delta-5 oil to minimize any discomfort and swelling–works great. Highly recommended!
Delta-5 oil can be used after light therapy to improve recovery and comfort
“I love the Delta-5 oil! This product made my skin feel so moisturized and not a greasy feeling after it was absorbed. I had the Allumera treatment done back in April and the ONLY thing that my skin could tolerate was the Delta-5”
Delta-5 oil used post-laser treatment and applied to makeup foundation
“Every day, I mix Delta-5 facial oil with my makeup foundation. This gives the foundation a more slippery consistency, and allows for better blending to the skin. Perhaps other oils would work for this purpose but I like the fact that Delta-5 also offers anti-inflammatory properties, and is thin and easily spreadable.
Moreover, recently, I had a Pixel-laser treatment under my eyes to try and lift my hanging eyelids, and smoothen and tighten the flabby skin around my eyes. After the laser treatment, the skin was irritated, so I applied Delta-5 oil daily under my eyes for one week, which smoothed the skin, reduced irritation, and speed up healing.
Next, I am going to try Delta-5 oil on my psoriatic plaques, in combination with my cortisone cream (to help penetrate the plaques)…I will let everyone know how that works out..”
Delta-5 oil can be used after a peel to control peeling and soothe the skin
Had THE PERFECT DERMA Chemical Peel Jan. 30, 2019, and peeling became uncontrolled and painful. Started using the supplied “POST PEEL MOISTURIZER” on Feb 2 (Day 3). The supplied moisturizer is helpful, but tends to clump up the dead, peeled skin, without removing it. Applied Delta-5 oil February 2 in the evening (two pictures shown), and loved the soothing, calming, and pain reducing properties, Dead, peeled skin was easily sloughed off with my hands or a towel. Also found the Delta-5 oil could be used in combination with the supplied moisturizer for dual benefits. Give it a try fellow peelers.
SCIADONIC ACID: A NEW WAY TO FIGHT INFLAMMAGING.*
Beauty Blogger Giorgia Guazzarotti at Beautiful with Brains has reviewed Delta-5 oil by SciaEssentials.
She reports improved appearance, softness, smoothness, plumping, reduction of fine lines, less redness, and anti-acne benefits. Please read her detailed comments below, and for even more details, see her full review.
LET’S PUT IT TO THE TEST: PERSONAL USE & OPINION
Sciaessentials® Delta-5® Oil is a light oil, so use it sparingly. My skin is on the dry side so it absorbs pretty quickly but if you use too much, your skin will look a little shiny for a few minutes.
It’s tricky to judge how well it fights chronic inflammation because you can’t see the nasty bugger! But I know it’s there because I live in one of the most polluted cities in the world (thanks, London!) and I’m often under a lot of stress. It ain’t easy to juggle two blogs, a novel in the making and a relationship…
But I did notice some changes. The most obvious? My skin feels so soft and smooth. It’s also plumper, which in turn makes the few fine lines I have look smaller. It just makes my skin look better.
And it DOES something for inflammation, too. I mean, I knew it would. The science backs that up. But I noticed it first-hand when I got a pimple. I haven’t suffered from hormonal acne in a while, but last month I went on holiday and indulged in too many carbs (don’t judge).
As if on cue, a pimple reared its ugly head on my chin. I used a few drops of Sciaessentials® Delta-5® Oil on it and immediately, the redness went down. The pimple healed a little faster too.
I’m confident that if you have any inflammatory skin conditions, like rosacea, or some wound/burn on your skin, you’ll see visible results way more quickly
Talking about burns, if you’re going on holiday somewhere hot and sunny, this oil makes a good remedy for sunburns too. Bring a bottle with you, just in case.
This is a pretty bad burn from a hot grill – probably would have been 2nd degree burn. The Before photo was taken about 10 min after the burn, then we applied Delta-5® twice (2 hours apart). The After photo was 18 hours later (with no further application of the product). The pain was significant until soon after the 2nd application. He used ice for the first 2 hours too, then no further ice. What is quite significant is how the pain is completely gone 2 hours after this bad burn. We will apply it again today.
Thermal Burn to hands and eye area
“I used E6000 to apply gemstones to my eyes for a dance moms performance (instead of eyelash glue) and reached my hand into a bowl of boiling water. The first (splash of hot water) scabbed on my face/delicate eye area. The second (splash of hot water) blistered by hand, but this stuff (Delta-5 oil) repetitively applied completely healed my eye area without scars; and my hand is healing up too (there is new raw skin, but this does not look like there will be scarring). Perfect timing in ordering this product just before this happened- a god send so thank you!!!!!!!!!!!”
Improved Healing from a hot water spill
I was having a nice leisurely lunch with my family at a Japanese restaurant. I was pouring very hot green tea from a traditional Japanese tea kettle, when the steel cap fell off the kettle. The kettle cap hit my tea cup and the hot tea spilled on my arm and belly. After a few seconds, the pain was intense and I put an ice pack on my arm and belly for 30 seconds, and then applied 1 drop of Delta-5 oil to my arm, and 1 drop to my belly. The stinging pain on my arm lasted for another 10 minutes and was gradually reduced and gone by15-20 minutes; the redness was gone within 2 hours. The pain on my belly was gone within 6 minutes of applying the Delta-5 oil, and there was no redness after 30-45 minutes (with improvements after 6 minutes). By 9 hours, there was no sign of any injury. Check out my before and after photos!
Improved Healing from a hot pepper spice burn
“I was preparing a meat barbecue sauce for a friend, and my fingers got burned by hot peppers. After 4 hours, the fingers were still stinging and the pain was intense. I was contemplating a sleepless night. My wife had just purchased a bottle of Delta-5 oil based on a friend’s recommendation on the healing properties of the oil. We applied the Delta-5 oil to the fingers 4 hours after the spice burn. The pain subsided immediately and was entirely gone within one hour. I got a restful sleep. A big thanks to the discovers of Delta-5 and for my wife’s quick thinking” I think this product should be part of all families’ first aid kits.”
“My pimple inflammation was reduced the next morning.”
Delta-5 oil effective for facial redness
Before picture (top): 24 hours after 3 drops Delta-5 oil applied to face. No improvement noticed after 24 hours versus baseline.
Delta-5 oil applied to face, 3 drops per dose, 7X/day, for 1 month. Oil then applied, 3 drops per dose, 2X/day, morning and night, for 2 months (maintenance phase).
After photo (bottom) taken 3 months after Before photo, demonstrating significant improvements.
No medications taken during this 3 month period.
Big improvements seen. Customer commented: “Delta-5 oil is the only thing that healed my skin”; and “A little bit of Delta-5 goes a long way”
Super-dry cracked heel
“As a continuation of the previous post, my feet were not quite as deeply cracked as before, but were excruciatingly dry in January of 2019 while in Norway. A deep cracked formed and it was painful to walk. See the upper panel.
“I applied 3 drops of Delta-5 oil across the dry heel, and felt an immediate reduction in pain, uptake of Delta-5 oil into the skin, and the crack was less painful immediately, and had annealed by the morning (Lower panel). I continued to use Delta-5 oil (about 3 drops) each morning and evening for the next few days, and the extreme dryness did not return, even after I stopped applying the Delta-5 oil, suggesting a healing process had been stimulated. Highly recommend Delta-5 alone, or with other ingredients, for dry, cracked heels.”
Ultrasound increases penetration of Delta-5 oil into very dry feet
- Both rows: Delta-5 oil shows immediate improvements (cracking , redness, pain, discomfort) when applied to bottom of my right foot (3-5 drops).
- Bottom Row, No Ultrasound: After 5 minute wait, no evidence oil readily absorbed into skin (Image 3578 and Image 3580-equivalent). 5 minutes wait corresponds to 2 ultrasound cycles.
- Top row: After 5 min ultrasound with Mira-Tech (Image 3544), less oil on skin surface (Image 3542), indicating UltraSound increased absorption of oil into skin surface!
Inflamed pinky toes
I suffer from very dry feet (see testimonial post here) and toes. My pinkie toes are always dried, cracked, red, inflamed, swollen, and sometimes painful. I applied 3 drops of Delta-5 oil to my right pinky toe with the dropper, and spread the oil around with my finger. Immediately, the toe felt and looked better. The photo taken 2 minutes later shows a striking decrease in redness, cracking, dryness, and swelling; and there was less discomfort. Three hours later and 12 hours later, and the pinky toe still look great (photo not shown). If you suffer from foot, toe, and cuticle issues, Delta-5 oil is a winning choice.
For many years, I have suffered with extreme cracking and hyperkeratinosis (skin thickening) on my left foot, and sometimes the right foot. The condition has been diagnosed and treated as psoriasis, eczema, hyperkeratinosis and by other names.. Regardless of the official diagnosis and naming, the heel of my left foot is painful, red, scaly, itchy, and cracks easily, especially in the winter months. I have been treated with Dovonex (psoriasis medication containing calcipotriene, a Vitamin D derivative), strong steroidal creams (for treating anti-inflammatory conditions, with careful warnings about washing hands after use), ketolytic agents such as urea (to decrease skin thickness), and phototherapy with specific wavelengths of UV light. Of these, the Dovonex was ineffective; the steroidal creams were beneficial only acutely, the benefit quickly tapered off and there are other side effects if used chronically; and the ketolytic agent accelerated the rate of skin thickening. Light therapy was effective, but expensive, required daily visits to a dermatologist, and could not be prescribed until the condition manifested in its worse state. Sleeping with Vaseline and socks (us gymnasts/ex-gymnasts affectionately refer to as “Sock Therapy”) offered temporary relieve from the cracking, but was uncomfortable and hot, and the pain and itching returned during the day when not socked up with Vaseline. So, I turned to Delta-5 oil…
The upper panel shows the significant cracking and skin deformation prior to applying Delta-5 oil.
I then applied 3 drops of Delta-5 oil to my finger with the dropper, and then used my finger to spread the oil over the affected areas. I covered my foot with a sock and slept through the night. Immediately after applying the oil, I felt an intense sense of relief and soothing, as if I had just taken a very strong pain or numbing medicine. I then applied the oil every other night following the above protocol, for a total of 4 applications over 8 days (middle panel). There was improvement each day with less itchiness, scaliness, and redness.
The lower panel shows the foot after 3 weeks, with no oil applied between days 7 and 21. The condition of my foot is the best it has been in a very long time. I intend to re-apply Delta-5 oil once a week for maintenance purposes, and if the condition should worsen again.
Improved Forehead / Make-up Routine
“My forehead looks so much better after using Delta-5®. I will continue to use before putting on my make-up before I go anywhere!”
“I have used your product for a week now, I put it on once in the morning and once at night. I have seen a difference in a week.”
Dramatic and rapid improvement in skin irritation
Potential customer (50ish year old female Asian woman) applied about 3 drops of Delta-5 oil to her affected wrist area. Immediately, she reported the itch was gone, and within about two minutes, the redness and blotchiness, and skin protrusions were mostly gone. She ran off with the bottle, and my partner chased her down to retrieve the oil for his own skin healing needs.
“The Delta-5 oil seems generally to improve some aspects of seborrheic keratosis in anecdotal clinical observations (i.e., effects seen without randomized comparison to placebo or other active commercial preparations). In a world of ineffective and toxic skin chemicals, we have reordered another supply of the product online, since it as good or better than most prescription dermatological preparations available commercially today…

A Love Affair with the Oil
“I freaking love the Oil! Is there wholesale available for resale?”
Another Love affair with Delta-5
“Loved the oil. I apply day and night. Love how it feels light, but concentrated at the same time. My skin feels hydrated and has wonderful glow. I truly love the oil and I am obsessed with it.”
Yet Another Love affair with Delta-5
“I love your product, so blessed to have been introduced to it, wish you could conjure up something we could take internally to fix us inside as beautifully as Delta-5 repairs our outsides! Thank you, Andrea”
Inflammation patch on the Face: Delta-5 oil worked, Pharma solutions did not!
I have been dealing with a growing skin inflammation issue for almost three years now. It initially waxed and waned, though was less of a problem to begin with as it was a very small patch and was gone more often than there. Over the course of the last year it grew slightly larger in size and became persistent, never completely resolving. It has occasionally been itchy. Doctors prescribed several different types of creams, including antibiotic, steroid [anti-inflammatory] and Crisaborole (Eucrisa) [anti-eczema]. Nothing helped whatsoever.
I recently decided to give DELTA-5 oil a try, liking the idea of a light oil derived from sustainable sources, containing a few ‘simple’ ingredients, though skeptical of trying something so new that claimed to be so versatile.
It took a couple of weeks of twice daily use before my stubborn, irritated patch began to subside. But it definitely did, and has remained consistently less noticeable since. The redness is still there, though very faint, and in a smaller area than before. I haven’t had any itchy sensation whatsoever since beginning treatment with DELTA-5. The before and after pictures are after 8 weeks of usage.
I’ve gotten a bonus in this product, as it has also helped to combat several of summer’s annoying bee stings, bug bites, and poison plant rashes, as well as healed a cut on my lip (see other testimonial posts)
Improved serious rash under ring/Love Delta-5
“I have been using Delta-5 oil on my face and neck one to two times a day. My skin has a healthy glow, I am 71, and this is a preventative for wrinkles! But I have just found another use. I developed a serious rash under my wedding ring.. I managed to get my ring off and applied a few drops to a bandage and left it on overnight. What had been painful, completely subsided and healed perfectly. I will never be without Delta-5 oil.
I will let my friends know about your wonderful product. If you ever need anyone to test a new product, please keep me in mind. I first saw you speak on “The Skinny on Fat” seminar, and have watched it several times! I truly appreciate all of your time and expertise in coming up with this incredible product. I love Delta-5 !”
Reduced Scarring in Nose
“Last night as soon as I applied the oil the burning sensation stopped the following minute. When I woke up this AM the amount of scars which were obstructing 50% of my nostril airway had softened up in a way that I was easily able to clean up my nostril. All that is left is the scar which is healing quickly. I applied the oil once more after I cleaned up my nose. Very potent product.”
Healing of a deep post-operative scar
“Torn my distal bicep tendon doing pushups 11/25/18 (see: https://www.instagram.com/p/Brfq7KInDF6/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link).
“Had emergency surgery 11/30/18, resulting in two deep scars. The longest and deepest of the two is shown in the photos. Each night, applied Delta-5 oil (about 3 drops) either alone, or in some cases, as mixtures with CBD cream, Mederma, Arnicare, and Neosporin. The healing of the scar has been excellent over this first month, with less pain, less scaliness, and less sensitivity. In the panel of 12/23/18, immediately after applying Delta-5 oil, there is a feeling of relief and comfort. I had my first follow up appointment with my surgeon on 1/9/19, and she said, “Wow, the scars are healing really well and I was worried about these scars because they were so close to the bone”. I did not disclose my secret weapon in Delta-5 oil, but plan to bring it with me on my final visit with her 2/20/19.”
Faster Healing of a Scrape
“I fell while hiking in the woods and sustained a nasty scrape to my knee. I applied Delta-5 oil to my knee and the results were astounding. First, the pain went away immediately. Then, the redness decreased. Finally, everytime I applied the oil, my scrape visibly healed-almost before my eyes! My scrape is now healed and I can hardly believe how well and how quickly I recovered from this injury. I am a believer and will carry this oil in my purse from now on. ”
Improved Healing of a Rash
“My big red, painful rash on the right side of my mouth was just about gone 11 hours after using Delta-5 oil.”
Ankle redness and irritation dramatically improved
Subject presented with redness, irritation, and pain on her ankle, she attributed to work stress (Left, Image 3673, March 12, 1:15 PM CST). Then, 3 drops Delta-5 oil applied to the affected area, and photos taken about 15 hours later (March 13, 6:22-6:24 AM CST). Remarkable improvements seen!!
Pain Reduction in Hand
“My Mother has osteoarthritis of the hand and was going to get needed joint surgery. She applied your Delta-5 oil. Five minutes after a single application, the pain was reduced and she no longer needs surgery. Your oil is important for helping with osteoarthritis and likely ulcers topically. ”
Moisturizing, Softening, Plumping. Reduces Wrinkles.
“I found Delta-5 oil to be a very deep moisturizer, to soften my skin, to plump the skin rapidly, to decrease wrinkle lines, and to decrease puffiness. I am going to continue to try it out for different conditions on myself and a friend with wrinkles.”
Less Irritation from Adhesives
“I attach my insulin pump to my waist with SKIN TAC adhesive Wipes along with the adhesive on the pump. This keeps the pump securely on my waist, but the skin is red and irritated when I take off the pump. After one application of Delta-5, the skin was much less red and less irritated after removing the pump
Less Irritation from Adhesives: another success story
Photo on left taken immediately after removing my Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM), which is strongly adhered to my skin. I then applied Delta-5 oil, each morning and evening, 3 drops per application. Immediately after removing patch, my arm was red, irritated and painful. Two days later, still some irritation, but no pain (photo not shown). By Day 4, arm was greatly improved, with much reduced redness, irritation, and no pain. Without applying Delta-5 oil, my arm heals more slowly and is still inflamed on Day 4.
Improved Healing of a Scratch
“I was holding my cousin’s hairless Spynx cat with long nails. It got upset and scratched my left arm near the shoulder, leaving a two inch scratch.
After 6 hours, the scratch was still red and irritated, So, I applied one drop of Delta-5 oil to the scratch (Before picture take at 6 hours). I went to the bed, and in the morning, the redness and irritation were both gone, and the size of the scratch was removed”. After picture taken 48 hours after initial injury.”
Cuts Between Fingers Healed
“I tried Delta-5 oil on my fingers. I have had problems with getting the skin and base membrane to heal for some time but after just 2 days of treating them with the oil they are almost perfect again. Keep up the good work”
PAINFUL LITTLE CUTS ON FINGERS
OUCH! Minnesota weather and dry, cold climates are really tough on the hands, feet, face, etc. Every year I get these painful cuts around the cuticles. These cuts are painful and slow to heal. Every time you touch something and press on the cut, it hurts big time! Applied Delta-5 oil to open cut night before (before picture came out blurry, sorry), but in morning, cut was more annealed. If you have little cuts like this, try Delta-5 oil. Might also work well to combine Delta-5 with other ingredients; and to tape cut slightly closed to expedite improvement.
Improved Forearm Tendonitis**
“Due to continuous overtraining, developed stubborn right forearm tendinitis; and in July 2017, I could not lift my arm fully and train effectively. Took one spoonful (7 g) of oil after training on a Friday. Taste and texture were wonderful.
After awakening next morning, pain was gone, with only soreness remaining. Unbelievably, the arm I could not lift, could be used again. Following Saturday, had a workout including arm and forearm exercises for first time in a long while.
Tendonitis disappeared and has not returned despite continuous intense workouts including area of tendonitis I was shocked; nothing I ever tested, natural products nor drugs, had such an immediate and curative effect on my chronic inflammation, without side effects. I take one spoonful sciadonic oil every day after workouts, daily at noon; every thing is great again. ”
Softer, Smoother Skin
“When I applied the SciaEssentials® DELTA-5® oil, I did note that my skin felt softer, smoother, and more plush and supple.”
Improvement to a Rash*
“When I applied Delta-5 to a rash on my chest, I can’t believe the results that I have been seeing”
Faster Healing of a Thermal Burn
Dear Dr. Berger:
On Monday while I was cooking chicken in olive oil it splashed on my chest and I suffered a second degree burn the size of a quarter. It was raw, sore and painful for several hours, disrupting my sleep. I put Delta-5 oil on the burn consecutively for three days, twice daily.
My experience is a faster healing wound and it appears I may have less scarring on day 3. This product is amazing and I will use it in the future for topical wound care, redness and inflammation.
Improved Healing of a Burn
“I used Delta-5 oil on a burn and it healed the burn very nicely.”
Less Redness and Improved Healing After Acute Injury to the Face
In the class room, in the afternoon, a student threw a binder towards his desk, but instead it hit me with full force on the side of my face. This resulted in redness and lacerations (before). I did not visit the nurse, and no ice or other treatments took place.
Delta-5 oil (one drop) was applied to my face and spread over the injury when I returned home about 3 hours after the injury. The after picture was taken about 15 hours later.
The oil did not sting, hurt, or stiffen the skin; it dried and was absorbed quickly; it did not bother me, and it worked fast. I was happy to be around my friends the next day. I like this oil better than aloe vera (which my Mom usually applies), because aloe vera stings and is less effective. I think Delta-5 is amazing and I am a fan of Delta-5!
Delta-5 Outperformed Hyaluronic Acid for Anti-Puffiness and Anti-Wrinkling
“I’ve been using the bottle I purchased last week. For the last year, I’ve been using a ‘high-grade’ short-chain hyaluronic acid (HA; see footnote) for quite some time on my face once or twice per day. I’m in my sixties. I surely appear younger than my age. In my opinion, Delta-5 oil applied on one side of my face shows significant improvement compared to the other side with the HA skin product. With Delta-5, there was also a noticeable reduction in moderate puffiness, near my nose.
I’ve also applied Delta-5 oil to my forehead where I believe there is a definite reduction in horizontal lines. Beginning today, I applied HA to the vertical lines and then applied Delta-5 in the same place after the HA dried — as well as continuing the treatment on the horizontal lines. I will update SciaEssentials as I get more results.”
Rapid Healing of Cuts on Lips
“Very glad you mentioned this product! [Delta-5 by SciaEssentials]. I am a bit of a hoarder of skincare and makeup products ☺️, so when I saw this product I had to buy it because it has a completely different purpose from what I typically use. I must say, Nicky, I am overwhelmed by it! This is REALLY a great product ! I bought it recently because I have a lot of skin issues! Some melasma, not very dark but very deep… redness (rosacea) and… wrinkles… etc. Although I bought it to improve these skin issues, I used it for a different issue I had. I was trying to see a doctor about this new issue because I was very concerned! Several weeks ago… around March of 2018… I started to develop a wound at the corner of my lips (on the right side)… where the lips meet. It looked like an open cut and it would not heal! I tried a lot of products, but the open cut remained! Then the same open cut started to develop on the left side of my mouth! It was difficult to apply makeup and lipstick and it looked awful after application! It was NOT herpes. No one in my family has ever had herpes, but some friends do have herpes and it was not herpes! I had an open cut! Anyway… I applied Delta-5 for 2 days… like 2 times a day, specifically before I went to bed, and the cuts almost fully healed! No more flesh showing!! I have taken photos now (after photos), but I did not take before photos because these cuts on my lips looked disgusting. I believe in a few days I will have no trace of these cuts! AMAZING PRODUCT!
P.S- Delta-5 is also great to use under foundation for use on dry/ dehydrated skin, rosacea, etc. I have not used Delta-5 yet to treat my wrinkles or melasma. I bought some products I am testing now for these conditions to apply first, but I will try more uses with Delta-5 in the near future!😉”

Bee bite; creative blend with Delta-5 oil
“Stung by a bee today on the bottom of my foot. The creep found his way between my sandal and me. I usually react pretty badly, so I immediately went inside and took Benadryl and ibuprofen (rendering me stupidly sleepy). That doesn’t usually do the trick, though.
I made a paste out of water, baking soda, Delta-5, and Helichrysum (natural anti-inflammatory), and used it for a while.
So far, no pain, swelling, or itchiness.
July 9, 2018 follow up/clarifications:
I typically react very badly to bee stings, which is why I usually down the benedryl, ibuprofen, and apply anti-inflammatoy agents with baking soda. But even after taking all that, my limbs will usually swell, and be red, painful, and severely itchy for days. For example, I was stung on my leg last year and couldn’t bend my knee for three days!
In this case, after applying the Delta-5 oil, the bee bite was really itchy for the first three days, but then after that, there was no itching and pain at all. The bee bite never did swell up! There was never any pain!
I believe the Delta-5 made a huge difference in this case!”

Insect bite/improvements in complexion
“I got a nasty bug bite on my leg that led to pain, swelling, discomfort, intense itchiness, and redness. Not sure what bit me, but it sure does hurt.
I applied a drop of Delta-5 oil to the area surrounding the bite, and the pain was gone within an hour, the swelling was reduced, and the area was less itchy. By the next morning, there was no itchiness at all. I also applied the oil to my face, and noticed improvements in the smoothness and complexion of my skin, with improvements occurring gradually with each day of use.
Just ordered another bottle.”
“I’ve been using your carrier oil on my face for about 4-5 months now and it has helped a great deal.. Specifically, Delta-5 oil has completely cleared up my menopausal acne and rosacea on my face. I’d like to use in my massage blends for my sore, fibromyalgia muscles.”
Kimberly Young, Customer Delta-5 oil, June 12 and 16, 2018
Use with Make-up Foundation
“Not greasy; I am mixing with my makeup foundation; spreads well; I know it works and is active because it causes a slight flushing when first applies that then goes away instantly.”
“I was very happy to see that the redness in my nose was rapidly reduced (within one hour) after applying Delta-5 oil. I have now ordered more oil.”
Red, irritated forehead
“The skin on my forehead has been red and irritated for at least a decade. It would get worse when I was stressed, but not heal when I was unstressed.
After about one month of use with Delta-5 oil, the redness and irritation is almost completely gone, with just a couple of small dry patches.”
