Natural oils in skincare

People have been using oils for skin care for centuries. Generations have touted for their various moisturising, protective and antibacterial properties. They are so deeply rooted in natural cosmetics that today we often reach for pure oil to replace a balm or lotion. But this is not their only use.

Vegetable oils are most often derived from seeds, fruits, and sprouts from organic farming, cold-pressed and unrefined, which allows for obtaining a pure raw material with high value. Their composition is characterized by a large number of components with a structure similar to that found in human skin, thanks to which they are easily absorbed by it.

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) obtained from the seeds of the Simmondsia Chinensis California shrub; contains a lot of vitamins, provides the skin with softness and elasticity, and regulates the secretion of sebum. It is perfect for the care of not only oily and acne-prone skin but also normal and dry skin. It contains squalene (a component of the skin's natural fat mantle) and cetyl palmitates, which moisturise and nourish the skin. Perfectly absorbed by the skin, it strengthens the intercellular cement layer, which in turn prevents the skin from drying out. Used for all skin types, and especially recommended for inflammation, sunburn, and acne.
