Why Oils?

How are plant-based oils beneficial in skincare?

In recent years plant-based oils have become widely recognised by the beauty industry for their therapeutic benefits. Research into certain oils suggest they interact favourably with the skin because they are known to:

  • Balance Sebum production
  • Reduce inflammation and infection
  • Protect the skin’s barrier layer
  • Support hydration
  • Encourage cell regeneration
  • Strengthen the skin
  • Provide nourishment to the skin
  • Contain antioxidants, minerals and vitamins

Myth busting

A common misconception when using plant based oils in skincare is that they will sit on the skin or clog the pores. A well balanced facial oil is easily absorbed by the skin and regulates the sebaceous glands responsible for sebum production, thus improving the appearance of pore size and balancing the production of sebum.
Plant based oils nourish the top layers of the dermis where the blood supply is limited. Often nutrients do not reach these layers of skin and they become imbalanced. Using cold pressed plant based oils is an effective way of feeding the upper layers of the skin, maintaining optimum healthy functioning, a healthy lipid barrier and protecting the skin from environmental factors that contribute to premature aging and irritation.
