What are the benefits of oil-based skin and body care products?
Skin care and oils are in the spotlight these days. Oils in skin care in particular have enjoyed increasing demand in recent years. One should pay particular attention to the origin, production methods and organic cultivation of oils.
We know there are doubters out there. Who needs more oil on their skin? Won't it leave a shine, greasy film or cause breakouts? Not really. Let's look at just a few of the reasons oils are getting all the hype right now.
Oils go well with all skin types
For those with oily skin, natural oils help balance the skin's own oil production. If you have oily skin, a condition where there is an overproduction of oil, you need to be signaled to stop producing as much oil. If you put oil on your skin, the skin will get that signal.
On the other hand, those with dry skin do well with oils as they get extra moisture that is needed. While our complexions naturally produce oil to help keep skin hydrated, for some that just isn't enough. Oils can come to the rescue!
Oils help retain water in the skin and prevent excess water from being released.
Oils are essentially hydration concentrates
Hydration concentrate is one way to think of a facial oil. A traditional night cream is often water-based along with texturizers and oils. Many skincare moisturizers, lotions, and creams on the shelf contain up to 70-90% water, along with texturizers, leaving little room for the oils that actually moisturize the skin. Nature's Very Best's Hydro Face Cream with Superfood Oils has no water or fillers, just 100% pure botanical ingredients to give your skin all the good it craves and deserves.
Nature's Very Best is picky when it comes to oils
Not all oils are the same. Some are particularly rich in vitamins or antioxidants or essential fatty acids. However, remember that not all oils are beneficial, even if they are 100% natural. Rest assured that the oils at Nature's Very Best are carefully selected for their individual beneficial properties. Each has its own unique fatty acid profile and each offers specific properties to hydrate, support and protect skin. It's the way they combine to complement each other that creates the most effective skincare.

Oils support your skin's barrier
As we age, our bodies produce fewer lipids, weakening our skin's barrier. As a result, your skin can look dry, dull, or irritated and be more prone to wrinkling. Oils in skin care products are a simple, extremely gentle way to replenish those we lose as a result of the natural aging process.
Many skin-healthy oils contain high amounts of essential fatty acids. These fatty acids are essential building blocks of a healthy skin barrier, which protects the skin from water loss and binds moisture. Oils give you healthy, soft and supple skin!
