Plant oils are good oils

Heres an infomative article from Dr Hauschka  about  how good pure plant oils are for the skin . We stock a wide range of their skincare and makeup which is very popular

Plant oils are good oils

Natural plant oils absorb easily into the skin, protecting the skin’s hydrolipid layer and help prevent moisture evaporating from the skin.

Jojoba oil is actually a wax which is liquid at room temperature. It’s ideally suited for skin care because it spreads well on the skin, is readily absorbed and doesn’t leave a greasy film, and leaves your skin silky-soft.

Almond oil is readily absorbed leaving your skin smooth and soft. As a plant belonging to the rose family, the almond is one of the core plants of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care.

Apricot kernel oil is obtained from the seeds of apricot fruits by mechanical pressing and filtration. It cares for the skin and makes it soft and supple. Using a special process we prepare several plant extracts with apricot kernel oil which are included in the formulas of the Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products.

Wheat germ produces a light, vitamin-rich oil which, when ingested or used in skin care products, stimulates the body’s restorative powers.

Castor oil is obtained from the seeds of the castor oil plant and enhances the moisture content of the skin, smoothes and gives make-up products a soft, supple texture.

Olive oil is a good all-around moisturiser and is recommended for dehydrated skin. Like jojoba oil, olive oil is similar to the oils naturally produced by our skin and is therefore easily absorbed. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamins including A, D, E and K.

Coconut oil penetrates deeply into the skin. It’s rich in essential fatty acids, is protective for the skin and keeps it moisturised for a long period of time.

Peanuts are one of the few plants which can actually produce a warmth and light giving oil underground. The oil helps the skin feel soft and supple. The purified peanut oil we use in our products contain no allergenic protein components that are detectable.

Sunflower oil is a rich source of unsaturated fatty acids, principally linoleic acid, vitamin E.
