Why use body oil?
Body oil absorbs deeply into the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and nourished. Unlike lotions, which can leave a film on top of the skin, 100% pure, plant based oils penetrate the outer layers to moisturize on the inside and regenerate the tissue, creating skin that doesn’t just feel soft, but has genuine silkiness that lasts.
“[M]oisturizing creams and lotions made of water and mineral oils ‘provide’ the upper layer of the skin with moisture for some hours and then paradoxically cause it to dry out.”* This is because lotions are made by emulsifying oils into a base of water and/or alcohol. On their own, oils form a protective layer that traps moisture in your skin and is then absorbed. Lotions, on the other hand, contain water, which evaporates after a few hours, removing moisture from the skin. Also, because lotions contain water, they require preservatives added in order to prevent mold or oxidation. Our oils are 100 % preservative free – a simple, all natural approach to your beauty.
Oil imitates our skin’s natural moisturizer, sebum, so the body recognizes and assimilates it easily. We choose our base oils for their ability to absorb well, unlikeliness to clog pores (low-comedogenicity), and blend them to create a combined texture that glides on smoothly and is rich enough to soften even the driest skin, yet won’t leave the skin feeling oily. To infuse our oils with scent we use aromatic, volatile, plant essential oils that not only smell wonderful but have medicinal properties to protect and heal your skin. With daily use of our oils, you will be amazed at how soft, supple and fragrant every inch of your skin will become. Try it, you’ll thank us.
How to use body oil properly
For our body oils to be most effective, apply them after a shower or bath, when the skin is clean, warm, and moist. Put a quarter-size amount of oil between the palms and rub them together to emulsify and warm it, then spread it evenly over the legs, feet, and hips. Repeat the process for the arms, chest, neck and hands. Two to four pumps of oil should be enough to cover the entire body in a thin rich layer that will absorb completely by the time you are ready to dress. When used this way daily, the skin will transform, becoming naturally radiant, velvety, and irresistibly touchable.
