Oils are our version of a daily moisturizer. We don’t use emulsions (i.e. creams or lotions); instead, our philosophy is to directly address the lipid layer of the skin and balance its natural oil production and moisture levels. Our complex oil blends are dynamic players in any strategic skincare regimen. They moisturize by replenishing epidermal lipids, then allowing the skin’s barrier function to do its job—a key part of which is regulating the skin’s water content. Ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids, the lipids that aid in proper barrier function, are found in the stratum corneum. Fatty acids high in linoleic and gamma linoleic acids are instrumental in preventing congestion, moderating inflammation and protecting skin from environmental assault.
Our goal is to help you develop an understanding of your own skin and what it needs at any given time to function at optimum health. Everyone’s skin is different, therefore your needs regularly change based on internal and external factors like hormonal shifts, environmental influences, seasons, stress and, of course, age. It’s often necessary to use different oil blends at different times to achieve skin stability. When you understand your skin’s unique rhythms, you can select the appropriate oil blend to accurately treat its symptoms and maintain its overall health.
