Not all face oils are created equal.

Not all face oils are created equal

Over the years there has been a massive increase in the amount of face oils that have become available on the market.

Here at Skin Juice we created our very first face oil when the range launched back in 1996 as an alternative to using a night cream. We have continued to educate our customers on the benefits of using potent, pure and effective oils for over 21 years.

Since then many companies have followed and created their own face oils to satisfy these oil cravings.

However, not all oils are created equal. So how do you know if the face oil you are using is right for you?


Clean oils

With many beauty companies (who may not necessarily be natural minded) now getting into the face-oil business, it’s important to look a little deeper at your face oil ingredient list.

Watch out for ingredients such as synthetic or mineral oils, artificial fillers, additives or synthetic fragrances. These unhealthy and cheap fillers  won’t have the same affinity with the skin that natural oils have. Meaning they can coat, block or irritate your skin.

An all-natural and organic face oil will safely be digested by the skin and can help clear pores of excess sebum, as well as reducing inflammation and irritation.



This is where you will feel the difference. You may see face oils on the market at a cheaper price, however they may only have a few ingredients such as Rose Hip, Jojoba,  Coconut or Almond oils. While these are all fantastic oils for the skin, they will only provide limited nutritional value for the skin.


Skin Digestible Nutrients

Look for face oils that are concentrated with a wide range of plant-based nutrient rich oils such as:

  • Moisturising essential fatty acid rich sea buckthorn and macadamia.

  • Antioxidant rich berry oils.

  • Vitamin enriched oils such as broccoli or tomato.

  • Anti-aging oil soluble natural actives such as commipheroine or padinami, which will help plump the skin and restore healthy collagen production.

  • Anti-inflammatory ingredients such as turmeric and bisabolol (a concentrated extract from chamomile) will help to prevent redness and calm sensitivity.

The skin has these tiny little pathways around the skin cells. These pathways contain the skin’s own lipids and will attract and accept these natural plant oils. Having a complex blend of different nutrient rich oils will satisfy the skin’s full dietry requirements.


Molecularly Compatibility

Each plant oils molecular size will differ, some will be smaller and others are larger. Oil from camellia is smaller in it’s molecular size and can penetrate deeply within the skin to deliver nourishment and skin nutrition for cell regeneration. While macadamia oil has a slightly larger molecule and will be retained in the skin’s outer layers to nourish and moisturise by strengthening the skin’s protective barrier.This is another reason to look for face oils that offer a variety of ingredients.
