Natural Oils for Skin

Do you feel you could benefit from any of the following?

  • Instant moisturisation?
  • Natural SPF protection?
  • Help with sensitivity concerns
  • Does your dull skin require an instant lift?

Then you could do a lot worse than reaching for a bottle of precious botanical oils, that have a real affinity with the skin, especially if you feel you’re skins health has been compromised in some way.

Natures Natural Oils

Apricot Kernel
The kernel family creates lovely oil for a sensitive thin skin.
  • Rich in oleic acid
  • It naturally contains Vitamin E
  • It offers lovely softening and moisturising properties
  • Rich in phytosterols, which gives the oil its anti-inflammatory properties

Camellia Oil

  • Rich in Vitamin E
  • A light, non-greasy affordable oil
  • It contains around 80% oleic acid
  • Rich in essential fatty acids
  • Penetrates the skin well and offers really lovely regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties
  • The other benefit is that it has a really long shelf life, around 18 to 24 months
Hazelnut Oil

  • Rich in squalane
  • Helps to reduce trans-epidermal water loss
  • These natural oils for skin, have a dry, light skin feel, which is due to the tannins in the oil
