Many face oils on the market today are filled with harsh chemical ingredients, artificial colors and fragrances and alcohols that are irritating to the skin.

If you’re looking to reduce the number of toxins you are exposed to then it’s important to always read labels and look for Organic or Clean Beauty.

Synthetic oils also tend to clog pores, while most natural plant oils actually help to clear pores, reduce inflammation, redness and irritation.

As the Beauty industry is still somewhat vague on regulations, make sure you pay attention to and read the ingredient labels on all your products. Look for formulas with labels like USDA certified organic, non-GMO, sulfate free and paraben free. You can take it a step further by checking out EWG.org  for a full ingredient list and their safety rating.

Also keep in mind that plant ingredients can be power packed, be aware of your personal sensitivities and purchase accordingly.

Other Things To Look For When Choosing An Oil:

  • Oils that are steamed distilled, cold pressed or Volcanic CO2 derived.
  • Unrefined, wild harvested or organic.
  • Ideally stored in a dark glass bottle or store in a cool dark place, as exposure to light and heat damages these delicate oils.

Revitalizing Make-Up Touch-up
