I disagree with the previous answer. The ingredients are all natural oils, so I seriously doubt they're going to cause any damage. I can't even begin to say how surprised I would be.
I think the real answer is that it depends on her skin type. If she's having problems with dry skin, this may be a good product for her. BUT... you might be creating a monster if you give her something this expensive at such a young age. I was fortunate enough to start on very high-end products as a teenager and it's been a habit I've had to maintain over the years. ;) On the other hand, my hair and skin are super healthy and younger looking as a result.
If you decide to get her some, I would also make sure she's using just a tiny bit of it. More is not necessarily better with something like this.
Yes, 13 is too young for this product. It promotes faster cell regeneration, which slows as we age. I wouldn't mess with a her cell regeneration at 13 (or while she's still in her teens for that matter). It's also a very heavy oil, which isn't something most teenagers need and could disrupt her natural balance of oils as a result. Additionally, the smell is quite strong and slightly bitter. Not a smell most 13 year old girls want from their products.
