Body oils sprays are the perfect choice for that all over summer glow.
I love to use natural oils from botanical sources in my formulas, which leave a lovely light mist on you’re skin and have a fast absorption rate.
Below is a selection, of some of the natural oils you can expect to find in my formulas.
Natural oil in skin care
Apricot Kernel Oil: An excellent natural oil, it is easily absorbed into the skin without being too oily.
We just love this oil, because it is packed full of skin loving essential Vitamins, such as A and E, which act as antioxidants killing off free radicals which cause cellular damaging, helping to prevent premature ageing.
Grape seed: A fine natural oil that immediately absorbs into the skin leaving a lovely satiny, non-sticky coating; making it a perfect ingredient for a body oil spritz.
Jojoba: This natural oil is a firm favorite of mine.
Jojoba oil is wonderfully nourishing, and is packed full of Essential Fatty Acids.
It has a very high absorption rate into the skin, this is due to the fact that it closely resembles the skins natural sebum, making it a great inclusion for oily skin types.
Macadamia: This is a superior skin loving oil that has a rich nutty aroma with emollient qualities, make it a good all round moisturiser.
Macadamia nut oil is really great for a dry mature skin; it is also good for an oily skin as well.
Safflower Oil: This oil contains high levels of mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fats, which are great for skin health.
Safflower will leave you’re skin visibly nourished without leaving an oily residue.
Sunflower Oil: This natural oil is very close to sebum and because it mirrors the lipids found in our own skin, it is the perfect ingredient for a body spray; thus keeping you wonderfully hydrated, whilst protecting the natural moisture balance within your skin.
The other benefit of this oil is that it has a really drying effect on the skin, so it won’t stain your clothes.
