What Is Facial Oil?
Oils are non-negotiable for our skin, and well, our body too produces oil naturally, but as we age the sebum production gradually decreases. You must be thinking why does our skin require oil? Oils are required to maintain our skin’s delicate pH levels, its elasticity as well as the overall health of the skin. Facial Oils are emollients unlike our creams or ointments, they penetrate deeper into the skin. Made from botanical extracts and plant actives, they are more potent than a jar of cream or serum as they have nourishing and moisturizing properties combined with antioxidant benefits.
