WHAT IS A CARRIER OIL?
Carrier oils are usually a plant-based oil extracted from a nut or a seed used to moisturise and heal the skin. Our oils are to be used as day and/or night facial moisturisers, which can be used alone or in combination with other oils to find just the right formula for your skin type.
The Pure Oil Company’s carrier oils are a wonderful way to keep your face looking healthy and hydrated because they give your skin exactly what it wants: healthy oils. Our oils (they do not contain any added fillers or chemicals) absorb easily into the skin, protecting the skin’s lipid barrier and preventing moisture from evaporating out of the skin. The top layer of your skin is composed of dead skin cells held together by lipids (or oils). Keeping this layer constantly supplied with healthy oils will protect your skin from the elements and will help your skin to have a beautiful healthy, moisturised glow.
Finding the best oil combination for your skin type can help balance oil production, improve the texture of your skin, and help reduce the signs of aging. By choosing the right oil for your skin type, clogged pores and oily skin aren’t an issue, as clogged pores are the result of synthetic oils or oils that are too heavy for your skin (comedogenic).
HOW TO CHOOSE A CARRIER OIL?
First of all pick your skin type, dry, normal, sensitive, ageing or combination, then choose what oil in that category sounds best in relation to your skins problems and what you are wanting to target. Please be aware that some oils are great for a number of different skin types, and it may take a bit of experimentation to find just the right oil for you, but trust us, when you find it you’ll never want to use anything else!
Most of the time we recommend using our products as is, however they are also designed to be mixed, allowing you to create a more personalised oil, better suited to your skin type and better targeted to your skins problems.
And… if oil just isn’t your thing, but you still want an added boost of active ingredients, try adding a couple of drops to your current skincare regime.
Lastly.. quality does matter! Your skin is your biggest organ, and everything you put on it absorbs directly into your bloodstream. The best oils are cold-pressed, pure, and unrefined oils with no additives, just how we make them!
The Pure Oil Company only manufacturers the very finest and pure botanical facial oils, not commercial, fragrance or food grade oils. There is a big difference. You wouldn't want to put these other types on your skin!
