Body oils: plant-based remedies for dry skin

Moisturizing the skin is one of the most important daily steps if you have dry skin and use of natural plant oils is the right solution.

Body oils, made of plant based oils, provide the skin with the proper moisture it needs, especially for dry and very dry skin.

Plant-based oils nourish the skin, stimulate the skin's self-regulation abilities, support and strengthen the skin barrier and have antioxidant properties. Chemical composition of most natural plant-based oils is similar to the lipids of human skin. Therefore plant-based oils are absorbed into our skin’s hydrolipid layer to reinforce moisture retention. High-quality plant-based oils are also free of chemical ingredients and artificial fragrances.

Our skin is a living organ. To be able to perform its natural protective functions, choose skin care products made from natural ingredients. Vegetable oils are best solution for this.

The power of nature

The oils used in high-quality skin care products are obtained from natural sources, sea buckthorn, apricot kernels, etc., and do not contain chemical components and artificial fragrances. They are easily absorbed by the skin and supplement its protective barrier, because the chemical composition (lipids) of vegetable oils is similar to the lipids of human skin. As a result, our skin dries out less and receives the necessary nutrients, while maintaining the ability to breathe.

Since ancient times, people have obtained oil from natural sources - plant-based energy stores (seeds, kernels) and used it for soothing massages and skin care. The therapeutic benefits of plant-based oils have also been documented in medicine for centuries.

Plant-based oils strengthen the skin's protective barrier

Thanks to their moisture-retaining properties, vegetable oils take good care of mature skin, making it wonderfully smooth and silky. They contain vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that helps fight the negative effects of air pollution. Various plant seed oils protect the skin against free radicals and help the skin better cope with negative environmental influences such as smog. With regular use, oils with antioxidant properties prevent aging processes such as premature wrinkles and age spots.

High-quality vegetable oils - grape seed oil, sesame oil, squalane, jojoba oil, etc. - promote new cell formation and skin regeneration, making it an excellent product for the care of mature, dry and stressed skin

Plant extracts restore and soothe stressed skin

Various plant extracts and macerates contribute to the natural moisturizing and regeneration of the skin. It is recommended to choose body oils that contain plant macerates with a skin-restoring, regenerating effect, such as calendula, sea buckthorn.

Calendula macerate has healing, soothing and restorative properties. The active ingredients of the plant help in the fight against inflammation and promote the formation of new tissue, while carotenoids, flavonoids and essential oils protect the skin from external influences. Therefore, the energetic and rejuvenating properties of calendula, which protect the skin and maintain a healthy skin structure, are especially highly valued. In addition, calendula has a soothing, rejuvenating effect on skin that has lost its natural balance - dry, inflamed or stressed skin.

Due to its effective restorative and protective properties, calendula is a key ingredient in many of our products. Among them, it is abundantly added to the MARUSHA moisturizing Body Oil.

Sea buckthorn oil is especially valuable. It contains unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E and carotenoids. Sea buckthorn oil has regenerating, antioxidant and intensive skin care properties. This oil is also added to the MARUSHA Moisturizing Body Oil.

The best for the skin, with no greasy finish

Unlike mineral oils, vegetable oils easily penetrate the upper layers of the skin and support its natural functions, replenishing its lipid content and preventing moisture loss. Uneven areas of the skin disappear faster, and the skin becomes softer and firmer. Lighter vegetable oils - grape seed oil, sesame oil, jojoba oil, etc. - able to quickly absorb into the skin, without leaving an unpleasant greasy feeling.

When purchasing body oils, read list of vegetable oils. In order for it to be easily absorbed and to give the expected effect faster, choose such body oils that contain light oils (grape seed oil, sesame oil, jojoba oil, squalane, etc.) and plant extracts and macerates with skin rejuvenating properties.
