Why Use Plant Oils?

Our skin absorbs 60 per cent of what is applied to it. It makes it vital to consider the ingredients that go into these products and hence into our bloodstream. Increased exposure to pollutants, low humidity and dry air in winter makes our skin cells even more vulnerable leading to cracking, bleeding and a dull complexion. Some petroleum-based ingredients present in several moisturisers accelerate the dehydration of the skin.

Pure plant oils like argan, jojoba, Pomegranate, Almond are full of potent natural vitamins, enriching the skin deeply. They act like a shield that defends skin from free radicals and environmental damage, they reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture and hydration. They absorb easily into the skin and are full of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants for extraordinary skin that glows with health. Below is a list of some plant oils for a better understanding.

Jojoba Oil

This oil is extracted from the seed of the jojoba plant which is somewhat closest to the oil produced by the human skin called sebum. The sebum is what helps protect and heal the skin from external toxins. It has essential vitamins for the skin such as Vitamin B, E, and key minerals like zinc, copper.
