A: When most people think of face oil, they think of the petroleum oils found in most skin care products. These are typically listed as mineral oil and found at or near the beginning of the list, where the quantity in the formula is greatest. These oils sit on the surface of the skin and can block pores, clogging them and causing a break out. Our Face Oil is formulated with only pure plant oils, which operate on a molecular level more closely to our own natural oils in our skin. This makes is easier to absorb and provide moisture not only to the top layer of skin, but also the lower layers of skin. Avocado oil, our cornerstone oil, is made purely from avocado, and contains many nutrients and emollients that are good for the skin. It absorbs deeply, which also helps to deliver the healing benefits of the essential oils that are blended with the avocado oil. Every oil in our formula is there for a reason, for the benefits it can provide for hydration of the skin and anti-aging.
