Best natural body oils for dry skin

Having dry skin is a problem I think I can safely say we have all suffered with at some point in our lives. Whether it’s a seasonal condition or your skin is particularly sensitive, there are a lot of things that can cause dry skin. Especially in areas that get overlooked or which work particularly hard like elbows, knees and ankles. The good news is, when it comes to treating dry skin conditions, natural oils are fantastic at soothing dry skin and inflammation. The best way to make sure you have well-nourished and moisturised skin everywhere is to find the best natural body oils for dry skin. Products for baths or to massage in, that are superb at enriching and moisturising your entire epidermis.

Why natural body oils?

This is central to how we formulate our skincare range, so we are always happy to ‘cover it’. Pure, organic plant-based ingredients like coconut oil, Certified eco-sustainable Palm Oil and Virgin Organic Hemp Oil are loaded with Omega fatty acids, vitamins and antibacterial properties that have incredible powers of healing and regeneration. By choosing skincare products with natural organic ingredients you’re paying for highly concentrated goodness. No fillers, carriers or other artificial nonsense. Why add unnecessary things to your skin, which could in some cases undermine its health and vitality? In a nutshell, when it comes to choosing the right oil-based skincare products, such as our Sweet Orange and Geranium Solid Bath Oils, look for ones that are packed with genuinely beneficial ingredients, ethically sourced from high quality, organic sources.

Learning from the past, for your benefit

learning from the past, for your benefit One of the ways leading skincare companies create body oils that genuinely work is by studying the wisdom passed down through the ages. There is early evidence of people understanding the healing properties of plants dating as far back as 18,000 B.C.E. The Phoenicians relied on natural oils, as did ancient Egyptians. They used the power of essential oils for healing, beauty, spiritual enhancement, and in all aspects of their daily life. A great example is the impressive variety of health benefits of Argan Oil. This is carefully extracted from the fruit kernels of the Moroccan Argan tree. Among its globally respected health benefits are linoleic and oleic fatty acids, superb skin nutrients. As well as a substantial amount of vitamin E. This makes Argan oil incredibly effective as a skin antioxidant, moisturiser and healer.
