Cold pressed plant oils provide superior moisturising and unsurpassed skin nourishing qualities compared to their synthetic counterparts
Instead of petroleum derivatives, we use pure cold pressed carrier oils in all our skin care products. Our oils retain all the natural vitamin content that comes from the plant. In addition to vitamins, the oils contain omega 3, 6 and 9 and natural minerals, which are extremely beneficial to the skin
We use oils such as grapeseed, almond, peach kernel, jojoba and many more as part of our formulations. These cold pressed oils also make wonderful massage oils on their own. Some cold pressed oil can also be used as a facial cleanser (rice bran, golden jojoba or peach kernel to name a few) or a hair treatment for dull, stressed and coloured hair (sweet almond, evening primrose, jojoba, coconut oil). Or you can use them on their own as a simple but very effective face or body moisturiser.
