Why You Should Switch to a Body Oil

Keeping skin properly moisturised is one of the most important steps of a beauty routine. Choosing body oil over a lotion is one of the most important shifts you can make and here's why you should switch to body oils.

Why Body Lotions are the thing in the past?

All lotions are oil and water held together by an emulsifier. And 65% of lotion is made of water, this allows bacteria and mould to grow in lotion over time. Moreover, most lotions contain fragrance which is an ingredient that can disrupt hormones and cause irritation after long-term use.

Key Benefits of Body Oils

  • Oils regulate sebum production: Natural oils mimic the natural lipids found in our skin, which is perfect for repairing and re-regulate skin's moisture barrier, which is responsible for oil production.
  • Oils are cleaner: Most oils on the market derived from natural ingredients. Body oils have less toxic ingredients, preservatives and additives than lotions.
  • Oils protect against free radicals: Free radicals like pollution and sunlight can lead to premature ageing skin by creating the cracks in the skin. Body oils have the ability to penetrate through the surface and seal the cracks.
  • Oils are bioactive: Oils contain many beneficial nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants which can be delivered into bloodstream after a product is applied to skin.
