In recent years, essential oils have gained popularity in ingredient lists in clean skincare products. However, there still exists some skepticism surrounding their effectiveness and safety. Rightfully so, as essential oils are very powerful and if not diluted properly, can damage the skin.

In this blog , we will delve into the world of essential oils, breaking the stigma and highlighting why they make sense for our skin. By exploring scientific research and understanding their benefits, we will uncover how essential oils can be clean, plant-based solutions for a variety of skin issues when formulated safely. So, let's embark on a journey to discover the wonders of essential oils for your skin!

Dispelling the Stigma:

It's time to debunk the notion that using oils on the skin is inherently bad. While it's true that certain oils can cause irritations, many essential oils offer unique properties that can enhance skin health and address various concerns. Essential oils are concentrated extracts derived from plants. These concentrated oils compose of constituents and other actives that the plants use to protect themselves and thrive in their harsh environments. When we dilute them into skincare products we are able to harness their anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial  properties to provide therapeutic benefits for our skin.

Essential Oils x Scientific Studies:

Study: "Safety and Efficacy of combined Essential Oils for the skin barrier properties" (published In vitro, ex vivo and clinical studies. Int J Cosmet Sci. 2022 Feb;44(1):118-130. doi: 10.1111/ics.12761. Epub 2022 Feb 10)

Findings: The essential oils in combination in an appropriate amount were safe and effective in the improvement of the hydrolipidic balance and morphological properties of the skin.

Study: Essential Oils and the Treatment of Various types of Acne (A Review. Plants (Basel). 2022 Dec 24;12(1):90. doi: 10.3390/plants12010090. PMID: 36616219; PMCID: PMC9824697)

Findings: Modern therapeutic methods supplemented with effective and safe natural remedies such as essential oils, their ingredients, or both, as well as an appropriate diet, may be a suitable solution covering the entire problem of acne. Essential oils that can be recommended in anti-acne therapy should be distinguished by a strong and documented antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant effect, but also a calming, antidepressant, and toning effect because this disease influences the physical and the mental sphere.

Benefits of Blends and Formulations:

One of the advantages of essential oils is their ability to create customized blends and formulations. By combining different essential oils, we can target specific skin concerns and achieve synergistic effects. These blends can be tailored to address issues such as dryness, acne, aging, and sensitivity.

Targeted Solutions:

Blends and formulations allow us to address specific skin concerns with a holistic approach. For example, a blend designed for sensitive skin may focus on soothing and calming properties. It could help reduce redness and inflammation, promoting a more balanced complexion. On the other hand, formulations aimed at anti-aging may contain ingredients that support collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Using Blends and Formulations:

To safely create customized blends, rely on our expertise in blending essential oils with carrier oils. We ensure proper dilution and compatibility with your unique skin through rigorous testing. Since everyone's skin is unique, discovering the ideal combination and concentration may take some experimentation. Our choice of rich carrier oils, including jojoba, rosehip seed, and argan oil along with others that we carefully choose forms the perfect base as the vessel for essential oils before their gentle application so your skin see all of the benefits.
