“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”
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.
“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!!!!!!!!!!!”
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!
“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.”

CHECK OUT THE BENEFITS SHE DESCRIBES:
“My pimple inflammation was reduced the next morning.”
“In 12 hours after one overnight topical application on my palmar psoriasis my plaque, redness, itchiness and minor abrasion were noticeably reduced.”
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.
“This product really works, my redness and wrinkles around my mouth looks better in one use. Addicted!”
“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.”
“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…
Before: Raised bumps, just above knee. After 3 drops Delta-5 oil, 1 application, 48 hours later: bumps no longer raised, healing observed, less pain and irritation, June, 22 2018. After 5 days, no visible signs.

“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.”
“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”
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)
“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 !”
“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.”
“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. ”
“My big red, painful rash on the right side of my mouth was just about gone 11 hours after using Delta-5 oil.”
“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. ”
“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.”
“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
“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.”
“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”
“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. ”
“When I applied the SciaEssentials™ DELTA-5™ oil, I did note that my skin felt softer, smoother, and more plush and supple.”
“When I applied Delta-5 to a rash on my chest, I can’t believe the results that I have been seeing”
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.
“I used Delta-5 oil on a burn and it healed the burn very nicely.”
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!
“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.”
1 Min After Delta-5
“I applied a drop of Delta-5 oil to my lips at bedtime. The oil was rapidly absorbed and soothing. In the morning, my lips felt smoother, lustrous, puffed, full, and it brought out my natural color. I don’t even need my lipstick!”
“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!😉”
Your skin suffering after a nasty cold? Rebecca of Rebecca Brand Productions shows how Delta-5 by SciaEssentials relieves itchy, dry, redness around your nose; and how this all-in-one oil has other remarkable benefits. June, 2018
“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!”

“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
“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.”
“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.”
