Can a Multi-purpose Moisture Oil Work for Me?

Can a Multi-purpose Moisture Oil Work for Me?

I've had a lot of people come to me with this question or with concerns about using the same oil for body, face, and hair. Is it safe to use the same oil for your face as you do for your body? ABSOLUTELY! My recommendation: READ THE INGREDIENTS.

First rule of thumb - you want to make sure that all of the oils included in the oil blend are non-comedogenic. That means that the skincare product is specially formulated so it does not cause blocked pores.

Second - check that the blend consists of oils that have different absorption rates. If the blend consists of more than 4 types of oils there is usually a reason for this. Each oil does something specific for the skin, resulting in an all purpose blend that is safe and convenient to add to any face, body, or hair care routine.

The ingredients in Helen Rose Skincare Deep Moisture Skin and Hair oil are as follows:

Apricot Oil: Smooths fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes, rich in essential fatty acids

Avocado Oil: Improves elasticity of skin and enhances wound healing, replenishes and calms dry itchy skin, shields skin from ultra-violet rays

Sunflower Oil: Anti-inflammatory, protects skin from bacteria and germs

Jojoba Oil: Anti-inflammatory properties, eases effects of eczema, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, seals skin with a protective barrier

Babassu Oil: Used as an alternative to coconut oil, fights acne and heals related acne scarring, natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, relieves itchy skin irritations caused by eczema and psoriasis.

Pracaxi Oil: Used for treatment of hyper-pigmentation and scars, improves appearance of stretch marks, strong anti-bacterial properties, anti-parasitic, brightens dull hair and eases detangling process

Copaiba Oil: Powerful antioxidant, calms and soothes the nervous system similar to CBD but is NOT a cannabinoid.

Each oil was chosen for its unique healing components and absorption rate. This results in a deeply moisturizing blend that absorbs practically instantly and never leaves greasy residue. 

The next few blog posts will be a deep dive into each essential oil that we use to scent our deep moisture blend. From rose absolute to lemongrass to vetiver - each essential oil was chosen not only for cosmetic healing properties, but also for mental wellness support.
