Have you ever said no to a new skin care product simply because it contained oils? Many people are nervous about using oils on their skin because they believe that the oils will make them break out with blackheads and acne blemishes, or will make their oily skin even oilier!

The truth is, many skin care oils are nothing but good for your skin! Of course, there are some oils you want to stay away from, but most of the oils used in today’s beauty products fall under the category of non-comedogenic.

Non-comedogenic oils won’t clog your pores, make skin feel oily, or cause blemishes. They will instead deliver concentrated nutrients and moisture to the skin, which will help it to become healthier, softer, and more radiant. These oils are generally safe for all skin types, including acne-prone skin, as long as one isn’t allergic to the type of oil being used.

To give you an idea of the benefits which can be obtained through natural skin care oils, here’s a look at some of the oils used in Atopalm’s products.

Grape seed oil is an extremely gentle moisturizing oil that is ideal for hydrating sensitive skin and, amazingly enough, oily skin. Grape seed oil actually helps your skin regulate its own oil production, which means that oily skin will be balanced, and dry skin will begin to create a healthier level of natural oils. Finally, grape seed oil is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, which can help brighten the complexion.

Olive fruit oil is another great oil for oily and acne-prone skin, while being moisturizing enough for use on dry skin. It is able to heal UV damage, tighten the skin, and tone for a more youthful appearance. It closely mirrors the skin’s natural sebum, which allows olive fruit oil to absorb quickly and completely for comfortable use.

Jojoba seed oil is a great anti-aging skin care oil. It creates a lipid layer when applied to the skin which simultaneously moisturizes while preventing transepidermal water loss, resulting in incredible hydration. It is lightweight and quickly absorbed, leaving the skin feeling silky smooth.

Meadowfoam seed oil is the multi-tasker of the group. It moisturizes, rejuvenates, helps protect against sun damage, reduces visible signs of aging (like lines and wrinkles), and supplies the skin with a slew of nutrients. It never feels greasy or heavy, ensuring that all skin types will remain comfortable.

Green tea seed oil, also known as camellia sinensis oil, is the beautifier. It heals and protects with antioxidants while illuminating dry, dull skin. It smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, softens, and boosts suppleness, leaving skin looking youthful and feeling gorgeous.

These fantastic natural oils for skin care are prevalent in all of the Atopalm products, and when paired with other proven skin care ingredients, can truly revolutionize your skin.

  1. Great post!
    Another one of my favorites used frequently in our natural products is macadamia nut oil. It’s high concentration of Palmitoleic acid makes it a great choice for helping to reduce wrinkles and being super moisturizing!
