The benefits of using face oils
About face oils
Face oils are blends of nut, seed and plant oils created to nourish and regenerate tired skin.
The Samuel Gravan face oil range is formulated to reduce signs of ageing, fine lines, dull complexion, dark spots and sagging. They have been designed to suit all skin types, though dry and combination skin types tend to benefit most from regular use.
Face oils can be helpful in anti-aging routines. As we age, our skin moisture levels decline, causing fine lines and wrinkles to become more noticeable. Oils help to rejuvenate and nourish dry skin types. They are rich in antioxidants and also fight free radical damage to cells. Face oils also keep hydration in the skin, resulting in a dewy appearance.
The science of skin repair
Our face oils are all enriched with d-alpha-tocopherol (natural vitamin E Oil). This creates a natural barrier on the skin to help trap in the fatty acids and essential oils in the epidermis. The oils help to keep the skin layers soft and also seal in the hydration by keeping the outer layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, intact.
Our crafting process
Many skincare companies tend to use inferior methods of extraction, however the quality of the final product and its effect on the skin is noticeable. We use fresh oils in our range and buy them in small quantities, so our turnover of product is regular and the freshness is maintained. We are a small batch skincare company and hence each product is made fresh as we make it. We avoid crafting large amounts that sit on shelves for indefinite periods of time because it affects the product quality.
Our face oil range
Our Face oils feature ingredients formulated to target a range of concerns.
We also use cold pressed oils in our range of CO2 oils. This process involves the extraction of the oil from the plant matter without heat or oxygen. Heat generally destroys components of an oil and the lack of oxygen ensures the oil ensures the oil does not oxidate and remains fresh.
Our Jasmine face oil contains a mix of Jasmine and Argan. This oil helps with skin elasticity and contains omega 3,6 and 9. These fatty acids can help to improve the health of the skin barrier and also reduce hyperpigmentation with regular use. This face oil is also enriched with Sandalwood oil and Jojoba oil for added benefit.
Our Replenish face oil stimulates collagen and elastin. This oil is rich in Rose hip and Argan oil. The oil is also quite brightening as it has a range of essential fatty acids and is high in vitamin A. If your skin is quite dry, Try our Sandalwood version.
Our Night face oil contains Vetiver and Ylang essential oil. The base is rich in Avocado, Macadamia, Rose hip and Jojoba oil. These oils all work to moisturize and enrich the skin. We recommend using this at night as the smell is also quite soothing and the essential oil blend has its own benefits.
Our Day oil is a light face oil for use every day and you can also mix this with the Day creme. This oil is rich in Macadamia, Jojoba oils and a blend of Mandarin essential oil, Black Pepper oil and enriched with Vitamin E and Rosemary antioxidant. This oil works nicely on cleansed and exfoliated skin.
All of our oils have been carefully curated with a chemist and organic skincare formulator. We recommend using these regularly, perhaps starting with a smaller size and working your way up. The Face oils are presented in amber glass bottles with an oil dropper, for easy dispensing. The oils will go a long way to benefiting the skin and are a great addition to any skincare regime.
