Oils are an essential ingredient to natural and organic cosmetics.


They often provide a base and essential fatty acids to achieve a great consistency in product and nourish the skin. All oils are not created equal though, so check out my guide below.

Jacqueline Evans – Argan & Rosehip Oil
As the name implies, a moisturiser will provide moisture to the surface layers of the skin and will balance sebum production and prevent dehydration and dryness.  Most moisturisers tend to use petrochemicals as their main lubricant.  Switching to a plant based moisturiser will instantly help nourish the skin and leave it feeling smooth and supple.

Behind the beautiful aroma, lies a hydrating cream that is rich in linolenic acid and other essential fatty acids to assist in locking in moisture.   Enhanced by the precious Argan and Rosehip Oils, both incredibly important rejuventating agents for the skin resulting in soft, smooth skin.

 

ZAO Cosmetics – Concealer stick

Featuring Babassu Oil – This new arrival on the natural health scene is much like coconut oil in that it comes from a palm fruit, is solid at room temperature, melts when it touches your skin, and contains the same vitamins and fatty acids which make its close cousin so great. However, there are many aspects of Babassu that – in our opinion – make it a superior alternative to coconut oil.

The concealer helps blend in imperfections, dark circles or puffiness as a corrective cream and provides “coverage” with a perfectly natural look. The stick format is easily transportable, allowing you to touch up any time during the day. The ZAO Concealer is the indispensable first step to achieving a perfect complexion and eliminating imperfections. It comes in different shades to suit all skin tones and the stick format allows you to apply the product directly and locally.

Jojoba ‘oil’ is actually a plant wax that is the same consistency as our skin natural oils. This makes it amazing for balancing oil skins without stripping.

• Transformative serum that binds to sebum blockages and skin impurities, helping to flush out pores & minimize breakouts.

• Because of its distinctive chemical structure, Jojoba balances sebum production, decongesting and minimizing the appearance of pores.

• Lavender’s exceptional antibacterial properties help fight microorganisms that cause clogged pores and blemishes.

• In aromatherapy, Lavender is known to be calming and balancing to the emotional state.
