Organic Carrier Oils – For my skin type

Organic carrier oils that are designed to work with specific skin types.

If you’re familiar with our brands, you know that we’re big proponents of using oils in your skincare routine.

Oil is a healthy secretion that helps lubricate the skin, just as the oils that your scalp secretes are beneficial to your hair; the sebum that your skin secretes is beneficial to your skin.

But when your skin’s natural oils are removed, our bodies often compensate by producing more oil, and if your natural oils have been stripped away your skin feels dry and dehydrated.

Using oils in your skincare routine allows for deep penetration of the healing qualities found in them. Our organic skin care formulas not only have beneficial carrier oils, but also they are infused with herbs, other beneficial oils, anti-aging actives and added essential oils that give additional healing, nourishment, antioxidant protection, and help prevent those signs of aging, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Since everyone’s skin is unique to their own bodies, it’s important to use the right kind of oil for your skin. It’s entirely possible to over or under moisturise your skin, which can lead to breakouts, irritation, clogged pores, increased dryness, and/or dehydration.

Organic carrier oils that are designed to work with specific skin types.

So what is a carrier oil? Simply! one of the cooking oils that you have in the cupboard. These are derived from nuts, seeds or kernels. These are used to dilute essential oils to carry the healing properties of these deep within the skin.

Specific Carrier Oils that are in your cleanser and moisturiser are designed to work with your own skin type. Below we are showcasing a couple of carrier oils, the differences between these oils and what each of them does for your skin.

Grapeseed Oil – for Oily and Combination Skin.

This oil helps repair damaged skin and as it is high in antioxidants that protect the skin from free radical damage. Grapeseed oil is high in vitamin E and helps to increase circulation in the skin, making it helpful for preventing injury and also repairing it. It is great for skin types that are inflamed like cystic breakouts, rosacea, and irritation. It is light enough to be absorbed by the oiliest skin,it does not cause breakouts and it provides enough moisture for people that are working to balance their natural sebum production. Grapeseed oil may not be the option if you have very dry skin has it is very lightweight and does not provide enough moisture that dry skin sufferers need.

Jojoba Oil – for Dry Skin.

Jojoba oil is a wax ester that is similar in texture to the sebum that we produce naturally. This is ultra moisturising, healing and is easily absorbed by the skin. You can improve the look and feel of the skin immediately upon use. Jojoba is also an anti-inflammatory, it is gentle and high in vitamins and minerals. It is a great oil for those who suffer from rosacea. It is best not to use if you have oily or combination skin, as it is over moisturising and pore clogging for these skin types.

Sunflower Seed oil – for all skin types.

With its unique quality of strengthening the skin barrier, it has been shown to decrease transepidermal water loss. Not only is it moisturising it also keeps the skin hydrated. Great for the most sensitive of skin and is also anti-inflammatory. It is thin and absorbent enough for all skin types.

Coconut oil – for Anti-ageing.

Oh, the Coconut oil, antibacterial,anti-fungal and antiviral and yes ultra-moisturising and nutritious. Nutrient dense and high in vitamins like A, C, and E, it is a powerful ally in boosting cellular regeneration along with fighting dry and damaged skin. It is heavy and can clog pores, so fractionated coconut oil is a better choice to use on your face. Fractionated coconut oil is a lot lighter and absorbs more readily into the skin. So with skins that are oily or acne prone fractionated coconut oil can be used without the worry about breakouts.

Healing organic carrier oils for damaged skin, reducing sun damage, help boost collagen production and reduce age spots.

Oh, we love these – Avocado oil, Rosehip oil, Tamanu oil, Macadamia oil, Evening Primrose oil, and Hempseed oil. Avocado oil tops the list in healing and repairing damaged skin, great to use for scars. Rosehip seed oil has been shown to prevent wrinkles and is a wonderful organic oil to use to help fade scars after surgery, acne scarring and burn scars. It is also effective in treating age spots and mums can use rosehip seed oil on stretch marks.

Hazelnut oil – for Acne Prone Skin.

A lightweight oil full of vitamin E with properties that protect from UV damage. This oil is also astringent and gentle, which is great at balancing oily skin. It also has antibacterial properties, it refines and tightens pores, help tame oil production and reduce acne outbreaks.

So whether your skin is dry, oily, or somewhere in between, there’s a facial oil out there that’s right for you. It’s all about knowing your oils and doing a little experimentation to find out which one really makes your skin glow.
