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.
SCIADONIC ACID: A NEW WAY TO FIGHT INFLAMMAGING.*

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.
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.”
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.

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)
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!
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!😉”

“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
“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.”
