Jojoba Oil

Who knew you would need oil to fight oily skin? Oily skin happens when our bodies can sense that there is not enough oil in our skin. Its structure is quite similar to our facial sebum, which is why applying it on one's face is a way of tricking the body into thinking it has enough oil. Aside from that, it has moisturizing properties and antioxidants as well, keeping your skin plump and far from being greasy-looking!


Grapeseed Oil

This oil is very light on the skin, but heavily packed with antioxidants and linoleic acid, which fight germs and keeps dirt at bay! Grapeseed oil also helps relieve your skin due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Pumpkin seed oil

Pumpkin seed oil contains nutrients that can benefit all skin types, especially those with blemish-prone or irritated skin! It has Vitamins A and C, which fight the overproduction of sebum in our skin, and also helps in revitalizing our collagen production!

Avocado Oil

Not only does it have antioxidants and powerful vitamins such as Vitamin A and C to keep your skin clear and firm, avocado oil also has Vitamin B which gives you just the right amount of moisture, perfect for those on the dry side! It's also very gentle on your skin, so this oil is definitely suitable for all skin types.
