FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL IT MAKE MY SKIN OILIER IF I HAVE OILY SKIN?
Contrary to the popular myth, oils in fact help reduce excess oil on the face.
Over secretion of oil is produced when harsh products are used to strip away the existing oils or sebum, making your skin overcompensate and produce oils/sebum in excess.
Many of the ingredients in our oils contain anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and soothing compounds that help reduce pore size and help tone and hydrate the skin.
WHY OILS OVER CREAMS?
As we grow older, our body produces less oil, making it essential to add them back by way of our regular routine.
Apart from being free from parabens, synthetic fragrances and materials, and a huge list of all the other bad stuff, oils penetrate deep into your skin’s layers. Since oils are lipophilic which means they love fat, it makes it much easier for oil to pass through the layers of skin and hydrate your skin.
But wait, our oils do more than just excellently moisturise. The respective essential oils in the products have a multitude of health benefits.
On the other hand, creams are predominantly made of emulsifiers, waxes, etc. which provide a temporary film or layer on the skin without penetrating into the skin completely.
