When and Why to use a Body Oil

When and Why to use a Body Oil

Have you tried a body oil before? If not, there might have been a reason why - perhaps you found them too greasy or they didn't absorb well? I had these concerns in mind when creating Malsea Body Oils - I understood that for a body oil to enhance your wellbeing and nourish your skin, it absolutely had to be plant-based. And more than that, only contain ingredients that feed your skin and promote overall skin health. 

Not only are the body oils great for your skin but you can use them as a shaving oil to!  No need to apply more after you get out, just pad dry and let the oil absorb and dry into your skin.

Here are the top 5 benefits of using a Body Oil:

1: Tackles Dry Skin

Dry skin can be caused by changing weather, some soaps and even hot showers. And trying to treat dry, scaly skin is not easy if you've been using a body lotion. This is because creams and lotions are a mixture of oils/waxes and water (all held together by emulsifiers, preservatives and stabilisers) which creates a filmy layer on your skin. This makes it feel moisturised, but it in most cases, it's not actually helping to feed your skin with essential nutrients to keep it healthy. This is where plant-based oils come in - they protect the skin's natural barrier to prevent moisture from evaporating, so your skin moisturises itself.

2: Is Non Greasy

No one likes the feel of a greasy oil on their skin. But it's not oils per say that make your skin greasy, it all depends which oil you use. As an example, mineral oil is a common ingredient found in many mainstream, conventional skin care products. It's derived from petroleum and its molecular size is so large that it's not recognized by our own skin. It remains on the surface of skin, clogging pores and suffocating the skin. Whereas, a key benefit of our body oil are the plant based ingredients we use; it penetrates into skin immediately and provides deep hydration, without leaving a greasy residue. 

3: Absorbs Quickly

When you've jumped out the shower in the morning, you need an oil that absorbs quickly so you can get dressed and start the day. The blend of natural, plant-based oils have been carefully selected to provide a beautifully nourishing and light oil that absorbs quickly. One top tip is to apply the oil to slightly damp skin after your bath or shower - the oil will hold onto that extra moisture on the skin, providing extra hydration. 

4: Maintains Healthy Skin

A key benefit of the body oil? Each ingredient in our body oils it that they have been chosen to perform a specific function for your skin - and all of the ingredients are listed in full on the front label so you know exactly what you're giving your skin. One of my favorite ingredients in the Body Oil is the Sunflower Oil - Rich in vitamin e, an important antioxidant for skin protection.

5: Cruelty Free and Vegan

Looking after your skin is very important (it is your largest organ after all), but this should never be at the expense of animals.
