Botanical Versus Mineral, What Oils are Really taking care of your skin
Using botanical oils as part of your daily skincare routine can help to nourish and re-hydrate your skin. Many plants, flowers and seeds produce beneficial oils which contain a large spectrum of bioactive molecules with powerful skin healing and nourishing properties. The light molecular structure of these plant oils, allows them to be readily absorbed helping to protect, repair and nourish your skin. This is the main difference between botanical oils and synthetically produced oils (minerals) and oils derived from petroleum, which have a very complex molecular structure and cannot be absorbed deep into the skin layers. Even worth, it creates a film which doesn’t allow your skin to breath .

Rosehip oil…well we all agree on this one. Avocado oil, Coconut oil, apricot oil for massage and body oil.

Inca Inchi oil because it is rich in very important fatty acids essential for our skin, Argan oil which is great for skin and hair, and hazelnut oil, a wonder for atopic skins, healing, soothing and has a so pleasant fragrance which reminds Violette her childhood’s favorite spreadable chocolate paste.
