Face and Body Oils

Cosmetic oils have a wide range of everyday use. From oils that help take care of hair and skin that hydrate and nourish, to oils that are effective in fighting wrinkles, scars or acne.

Vegetable cosmetic oils for skin and hair

Vegetable oils are no longer just a part of our kitchen. Many vegetable oils are nowadays used in the cosmetics industry as a natural ingredient for skincare products. When it comes to the skin, these oils have primarily nourishing and protective properties. They protect the skin from adverse weather conditions, but also have biochemical protection. It prevents skin dehydration and helps the skin to form a protective film.

Oils for everyday use - how to choose the right one?

Before we get to the individual oils and their positive effects, it is necessary to learn your skin type. If your skin tends to be more oily you need to choose the oil visely as, for example, dense oils could cause more damage to the skin. Use thicker oils if your skin is rather dry. There is also a difference between young skin and mature skin. This also needs to be taken into account.

Use apricot oil to soothe the skin after a long day in the sun. If you want to hydrate the skin, choose from oils such as argan, plum or rosehip. For mature skin, we recommend including prickly pear oil. It is one of the rarest and also the most expensive vegetable oils. It has qualities that will be appreciated by people with mature skin. It absorbs quickly, works as an antioxidant, has moisturizing properties that help to delay skin aging, brightens the skin, soothes wrinkles and improves skin elasticity. 

Our skincare routine should include cleansing waters such as lavender or rose.  Lavender water has moisturizing and nourishing properties. It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin and is also great for children's skin. Choose rose water if your skin needs soothing and regeneration.

Is BIO certification important?

Quality is undoubtedly the most important thing when it comes to the products we apply to our skin on an everyday basis. Plants that grow without the intervention of chemicals can be applied to the skin without any worries, and in addition, these products have far more nutrients such as vitamins and antioxidants. Therefore, there is no doubt that the course of growing individual plants has a fundamental effect on how good the cosmetic oil will be.

Fair approach of the people involved in crop production is a benefit for BIO products such as coconut oil, argan oil or shea butter. These gems travel to us across half of the world and we can comfortably indulge in all the benefits of these oils. Without fair access to these people, all this would hardly be possible.

BIO certification is such a guarantee that these aspects were kept in mind during production. However, this does not mean that products that are not BIO certified are bad. If the product states its origin, cultivation, collection and processing, this is at least a good start.

Processing - what is the most frugal method?

We will now take a closer look at the methods by which cosmetic oils can be processed. If you look at quality olive oils, you may notice a processing method that is referred to as "cold pressed". This is the method that we are also interested in with cosmetic oils, because it is the most gentle processing method, which gets the most important thing from the plant or the fruits themselves, but at the same time retains all the valuable bioactive substances.

Other methods include either hot pressing or chemical extraction. This is a method that uses solvents such as hexane, pentane or heptane to make the oil. If the manufacturer does not state which method the plant was processed, it will probably be these two methods.
