How face or body oils work together with your skin?

"Oils penetrate into the skin - It provides required supplements for your skin." Lot of oils stimulates  the organic lipids within the skin, which aids for the balancing and repair of the own skin's moisture barrier, which regulates oil production. Research also demonstrates that if oils are absorbed into your epidermis, the skin's top levels deal with the oils as very own, which has a radiating and nourishing effect on the skin. 

Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it, and therefore the chemicals used in products go into the bloodstream. It is imperative to know what we apply, and the product we apply should be good enough to penetrate our body and provide some nutrient value for it. Even a tiny amount, these chemicals have severe long-term damages and can have a significant influence on our hormonal balance and health.

A word of warning  : always buy oils after reading the ingredient list; as many body oils in the market are loaded with fillers and preservatives or the oil extraction process is so bad that all the value are lost during the extraction process itself. Oils by Aroha Oils are one of the purest oils you can ever buy. Made from organic or wildcrafted ingredients and processed in the traditional manner, ensuring that the oil nutrients are not lost. We also infuse our oils with potent herbs to give an added boost to your skin requirements. 

The potency of oils is so critical.

Not all oils are equal. Not even two oils of the same type are equal. The potency of oil is so vital while choosing an oil for your Body and Face. The potency of the oil depends on the few factors, as below -

  1. The extraction process -
    This is where the most nutrient value of the oils is lost, as for an oil manufacturer, yield per kg is essential. Oils are pressed at higher temperatures or at a higher degree of pressure - in both the case the oil lose some of its potency due to the heat or fiction generated. Cold-pressed oil, which Aroha oils use, uses a traditional method of oil extraction called "Ghani vat" - where the wooden press is used, thereby reducing the friction and heat, though the yield is less, but the oils produced are of very high quality.

  2. Blended Oils -

    Various high-value oils are blended in a particular ratio to give various oils the goodness in one face oil or body oil.

  3. Herbs / botanical Infusion -
    You can always use the raw cold press oils on your body, and it will help the skin. But oils can be infused with herbs and whole plants to give them added potency, and specific result-oriented oils can help you the desired skin very quickly. This is one of the best ways to achieve your skin goals.

At Aroha Oils, We infuse the herbs and whole plant in various cold-pressed oils and blend them to have very potent and pure oil for your skincare regime.
