WHAT IS BODY OIL

There is something undeniably decadent about lavishing skin with a rich body oil. Not only do they absorb quickly to deliver essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants to your skin, they leave you with a smooth and hydrated canvas, even in the depths of winter.

Body oils leave your skin feeling radiant, soft, and supple. But we also love them because they encourage you to slow down and bask in this luxurious (yet simple) skincare routine.  A moment of luxury in the everyday – taking the time to apply a body oil is a beautiful show of self-love.

Our 100% pure botanical oil blends are concentrated, long-lasting and ultra-moisturizing. Expect radiant, glowing skin you can’t wait to show off!

HOW TO USE

Body oils can be used in place of lotions, perfumes, bath oils, and hair oils, and are the perfect follow-up to a long and relaxing bath or shower.

Simply smooth the desired amount over damp skin and massage onto the entire body to lock in moisture. Wait a few minutes to fully absorb before slipping into something comfortable.

You can also apply directly to dry skin for an immediate glow or can be added to your favourite moisturizer for subtle radiance.

WHAT MAKES BODY OIL SO EFFECTIVE

Body oils deeply penetrate the barrier of the skin to deliver nourishing ingredients necessary to keep the skin hydrated, replenished, and feeling like silk. All we can say is, meet your new skincare crush.

All our body oils are formulated with a selection of pure essential oils and six luxurious, nutrient rich carrier oils:

Macadamia: A lightweight oil that is high in oleic acid – making this oil incredibly moisturizing, regenerating and softening on the skin. The fatty acids found in this oil also have beautiful anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.

Baobab: Baobab oil is very rich in healing vitamin C (an important co-factor in collagen production) and is known for its softening and regenerating skincare properties. This profoundly healing oil helps to minimize scars, stretch marks and sunspots while relieving irritation from dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and sunburns.

Kukui: Rich in vitamins A, C and E, Kukui oil is an important anti-inflammatory that helps heal previous skin damage while brightening and adding radiance to dull skin. Kukui oil is also high in linoleic acid, which helps to balance oily or combination complexions.

Apricot: Apricot kernel oil is a light and soothing oil that can be used on sensitive skin. This light carrier oil is perfect for those who experience irritation and redness.

Sunflower: Sunflower seed oil works wonders to firm the skin, revealing a soft, smooth appearance. Sunflower seed oil is a great source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids (including linoleic, oleic, palmitic, and steraric acids).

Jojoba: Not actually oil but a liquid plant wax, jojoba oil is similar to the skin’s natural sebum meaning it is easily absorbed and penetrates deeply to help balance oil production and decongest skin. High in vitamin A and E, jojoba has antibacterial properties that help reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin. The emollient properties mean jojoba oil is incredibly helpful in retaining moisture in the skin resulting in a smooth, glowing complexion.

These botanical oils hydrate, nourish, and soften the skin – leaving you feeling dewy and glowing from head to toe.

Aside from the luxury appeal and sensory experience, our body oils also help:

  • Repair and attenuate scars
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Soothe irritated skin and minimize redness
  • Improve skin elasticity and tone
  • Calm rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis
