Natural Oils vs. Creams

share this blog

Are you searching for a moisturizer that is free from parabens and synthetic fragrances, penetrates deep into your skin’s layers, and doesn’t cost the earth?Instead of spending a fortune on expensive creams you should try natural oils.

Unlike creams, oils penetrate the skin’s deeper layers and provide our complexion with more than just a barrier against free radicals.

There are two types of oils that perform differently on our skin – vegetable-carrier oils and essential oils (requiring dilution with other oils). Both can either be used in pure form or specifically blended and tailored to individual skin-care needs.

Why oils are more effective at being absorbed by our skin than creams:

Cream is made up of water and an emulsifier of some sort, and wax. With cream, the wax makes it sit on the surface, leaving a protective film on the skin. Vegetable carrier oil is absorbed directly into the skin and it plumps it up from the inside.

As essential oils are high in water content and won’t absorb as well into the skin as vegetable carrier oils.

Essential oils don’t have the ability to penetrate through the skin and into the cells and blood by itself, so you need to mix it with a vegetable oil and it piggy-backs it deeper into the skin and into the bloodstream.
