Its been a few weeks since I've shared my last post - been busy with Mother's Day Pamper Packs!
To recap, in my last post, I shared about the qualities of two of my favourite base/carrier oils - Sweet Almond & Jojoba oils. These two are used mostly in my product formulations. In this segment, I will share about the qualities of other oils which I use often too.
Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)
Source : Virgin coconut oil obtained from fresh, mature coconut kernels
Skin types: Good for dry and dehydrated skin and mature skins as its very nourishing. That's why this is used in my body butter formulations.
Qualities : nourishing, emollient, protective
Common uses : for softening and smoothing, irritated skin, itching skin, sun damage, hair care
Note : For those with sensitivity to nuts, best to do a skin patch test.
Argan Oil (Argania spinosa)
Source : Kernels, produced in Morocco. Contains Vitamin E, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids
Skin types: Good for all face & body skin types including mature skin and prematurely aged skin
Qualities : Antioxidant, reconstructing, softening, toning, regenerative and protective
Common uses : for dry, flaking skin, scarring, sun damage, improving skin elasticity and in hair care
In my next post, I will begin sharing about the qualities of each essential oil that is commonly used in many product formulations - and those in my own product formulations - my personal favourites!
