I’m sure by now, you would have heard about the magical world of Skin Oils. They seem to be cropping up in every single brand, all over salons, department stores and even supermarkets. So what is all the fuss about?

Skin Oils can be a great product to add into your skin care routine at home to add moisture and nourishments to the skin. They are great for ALL skin types, not just dry skins as some people may think. Most oils are great for all skin types, however some will have different oils for dry and oily skins.

Oils are fantastic when used in conjunction with a water based hydrator, such as Hyaluronic Acid, as this gives the skin the ultimate level of moisture and protection. Water based moisturisers penetrate deep into the skin, while oil based moisturisers sit closer to the surface, creating a sealant effect and assisting in barrier repair.


Pelactiv’s Precious Oils is nicknamed “Liquid Gold” due to both its colour and amazing 100% natural and powerful ingredients. Precious Oils contains Native Peppermint Gum Extract, Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Bois De Rose Oil and Vitamin A. This combination of powerful antioxidants and nourishing ingredients gives the skin a smooth, nourished, and silky feel!

Precious oils can be used on its own after your serums and before your moisturiser, or it can be mixed into your moisturiser or masks. It is great for even the most sensitive skins, assisting in calming down redness and inflammation. I have had many clients who suffer from eczema use precious oils to nourish and calm down the skin so that they no longer have to use topical steroid creams.
