Pure Cold Pressed Vegetable Carrier
Instead of petroleum derivatives, we use pure cold
pressed vegetable oils in all skin care range. Because
the oils are not refined, they retain all the natural
vitamin content that comes from the plant. In addition
to vitamins, the oils contain omega 3, 6 and 9 and natural
minerals, which are extremely benefitial to the skin.
The cold pressed oils make wonderful massage oils.
Some cold pressed oil can be used as a facial cleansers
(golden jojoba or peach kernel) or a hair treatment
for dull, stressed and coloured hair (sweet almond,
evening primrose, jojoba, coconut oil). Or you can use
them on their own as a simple but very effective face
or body moisturiser. The other great thing is that they
last ages, as you only need from a few drops to a couple
of tea spoons depending on the application.
Almond Oil (prunus dulcis)
The golden sweet almond oil is rich in Vitamins
E, A, B & D, proteins, glucosides and linoleic
acid and has beneficial effects on hair, dry skin
and brittle nails. It is a very versatile oil,
often used for massage, as it suits even sensitive
skin types. Sweet almond oil is beneficial to
all skins, regardless of type or age, and is often
used in skin care for skin inflammations and irritations.
Another use is the removal of make-up and protection
against the elements, particularly the sun and
wind, and it is suitable for hot packs. The large
molecules in this oil make it heavier, and therefore
suitable for making a very moisturizing cream
