For those of you making the transition to natural, organic skincare, here are some reasons we think a Face Oil is the best natural skincare product going around.
Oil is pure skin food – without emulsifiers!
Most creams are a mixture of oil and water. However, as you may remember from high school chemistry class, oil and water don’t mix! For this reason, creams require an emulsifier to bind together the two ingredients. These emulsifiers can be plant-based, but in many cases involve the addition of synthetic ingredients, which are detrimental for our microbiome and for our skin.
Oil is pure skin food – without preservatives!
Whenever you introduce water, you introduce the possibility of bacteria. The presence of water in cream means preservatives are necessary to prevent bacterial growth. In short, creams have many additives, which simply aren’t necessary when you choose the raw, plant-based alternative: oil.
Oil is simpler and therefore more bioavailable to the skin.
It follows that where less synthetic emulsifiers, preservatives and stabilisers are added, the simpler and more natural the skincare preparation will be. That is precisely the case with oils. And because they are simply pure-plant power, without the damaging additives, they absorb readily into the skin, where they directly contribute to skin cell regeneration. Quintessential skincare ingredient, Jojoba oil, is so similar in chemical composition to the sebum your skin naturally produces, that it helps regulate sebum production!
Less is more with oil – for longer!
The high concentration of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids in oil means you only need a few drops for smooth, rich coverage. And, because oils such as Jojoba help to seal the skin against moisture loss, your skin will feel supple and hydrated for longer!
