Often when we hear the word ‘oil’, we immediately feel apprehension about applying it to our skin or hair because we imagine it will make them, well…oily. But the truth is, adding oil – specifically a carrier oil to these parts of our bodies actually regulates its production and signals to the body it doesn’t need to produce as much. But best of all, carrier oils boast a nutrient rich composition and potent properties that nurture, moisturize, and rejuvenate both skin and hair–deeming them a holistic beauty essential. Find out below why our Fractionated Coconut, Jojoba, and Sweet Almond Carrier Oils deserve a spot in your all-natural self-care regimen.

Moisturizing Properties: Carrier oils are rich in fatty acids, which help to hydrate and nourish the skin and hair. They form a protective barrier that locks in moisture, preventing dryness and dehydration. Regular use of carrier oils like Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Oil can leave the skin and hair feeling soft, smooth, and supple. Fractionated Coconut Oil is also a very hydrating oil for skin. It has been known to help diminish the appearance of stretch marks while simultaneously softening and soothing the skin.

Nutrient-Rich: Carrier oils contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that provide essential nutrients to the skin and hair. These nutrients support skin regeneration, hair growth, and overall health. For example, oils like argan oil are high in vitamin E, which has anti-inflammatory properties and promotes skin repair. Sweet Almond Oil can even strengthen and fortify weak or brittle nails.⁠

Balancing Oil Production: Contrary to popular belief, applying oil to the skin can actually help regulate oil production. Carrier oils mimic the skin's natural sebum, signaling to the body that it doesn't need to produce as much oil. This can be particularly beneficial for oily or acne-prone skin, as it helps to balance oil levels and prevent clogged pores. Opt for Fractionated Coconut Oil as it won’t clog pores, and is very easily absorbed. 

Soothing and Calming: Many carrier oils have soothing and calming properties that can alleviate skin irritation, redness, and inflammation. They provide relief to sensitive or reactive skin, making them suitable for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. Oils like Jojoba closely resemble the skin's natural oils, making them especially gentle and well-tolerated. Loaded with special essential fatty acids, Sweet Almond Oil soothes the skin when it feels itchy and irritated, and can also help the skin repair itself.

Enhancing Hair Health:
Carrier oils penetrate the hair shaft, nourishing and strengthening the hair from within. They help to repair damage, reduce breakage, and improve the overall texture and appearance of the hair. Regular use of Sweet Almond Oil and/or Jojoba Oil can restore shine, manageability, and vitality to dull, dry, or damaged hair.

Versatility: Carrier oils can be used alone or blended with other ingredients to create customized skincare and haircare formulations. They serve as excellent carriers for essential oils, allowing for easy application and enhanced absorption of therapeutic compounds. From facial serums to hair masks, the possibilities for incorporating carrier oils into your beauty routine are endless.

Carrier oils are the unsung heroes of skincare and haircare, offering a multitude of benefits that cater to a diverse range of needs. Whether you're looking to moisturize, protect, or rejuvenate, these botanical elixirs provide a natural and holistic approach to beauty that's hard to beat. So, the next time you reach for your skincare or haircare products, don't forget to give carrier oils the recognition they deserve – your skin and hair will thank you for it!
