Yes, even if you have acne-prone or oily skin
Plant oils are skincare’s most versatile moisture lock, leaving you with hydrated skin with that extra glow.
Layered on as the last step in your routine after moisturizer, the lipids in these oils are the key ingredient in locking in moisture to keep your skin plump and radiant without leaving your skin feeling greasy.
Although it’s an extra step in your skincare routine, however, the benefits will make it worth it.
What Are Plant Oils?
Plant oils or organic vegetable oils are fatty substances that are extracted carefully from an oilseed plant.
There are different methods of extraction, namely cold pressed and macerated oils, Florame’s cold pressed oils are 100% pure without any additives or fragrances, except for Argan Oil which is deodorised.
Macerated oils on the other hand, involve infusing parts of a dried medicinal plant (flowers, flower heads, roots, etc.) in an oil base.
Maceration uses solar power to draw out the botanical plant benefits, hence this can only be done during the summer when there is enough sunlight. Plants like St. John’s Wort and Calendula can’t be extracted via cold press, so macerating them in olive oil is the best way to get the maximum benefits of these healing plants.
It’s safe to say that these beneficial oils form an occlusive seal over the skin and even hair, enabling active ingredients to penetrate through the epidermis and working their magic!
Why Do I Need Plant Oils?
Plant oils help our skin maintain a healthy oil balance as our epidermis decreases in natural oils with age and environmental factors. So, having a face oil as a step after moisturizer is vital as it acts as a moisture seal to your skin. And the best part is that it leaves your skin with a satin and glowy finish!
A vital step to your everyday skincare essentials
The Florame Organic Plant Oils are cold-pressed from 100% natural and pure extracts from the very best organic oilseed plants, with no additives, preservatives and synthetic fragrances.
Suitable for all skin types (yes, even for oily or blemish-prone skin), use a beauty oil to help keep your skin from dehydration, breakouts and pre-mature aging.
Would Plant Oils Clog My Pores?
With concerns that face oils would clog pores, the trick is to pick facial oils with a smaller molecular size that will easily be absorbed into your skin without clogging your pores.
How Organic is Organic?
There are a lot of skincare products in the market today that prides themselves as being organic or pure, but on the flipside are made from more than 20 artificial ingredients.
Florame, headquartered in the Provence region of France, has been an expert and pioneer in organic cosmetics since 1990. From the steam distillation process to production, all Florame oils are 100% natural and carefully and sustainably extracted from the most organic plants found.
Florame is also certified by ECOCERT Greenlife according to COSMOS standards.
Florame’s careful sustainable harvesting process also ensures all their products are either Geo-Authentic or Certified Fair Trade.
Are Plant Oils and Essential Oils The Same?
Well, to answer this simply, no. They are different and have different functions.
Vegetable oils or plant oils are fatty substances from an oilseed plant, meaning a plant whose seeds, nuts or fruits contain lipids. They make the plant capable of producing an oil composed of triglycerides.
Essential oils are more complex than vegetable oils as it is an aromatic plant essence that is obtained through steam distillation.
Macerated oils are infusions of medicinal plant extracts in virgin oil. To obtain it, the flowers go through solar maceration in an oily base. After several weeks, the preparation is filtered, and the resulting oil is thus full of active ingredients from the flowers.
Since macerated oils are based on herbs, they often have similar properties to essential oils extracted from the same parts of the same plants, though they are much less potent.
How to Use Plant Oils?
Plant oils are the ideal carriers to be used in combination with essential oils and Aloe Vera gel which give your skin a refreshing and nourishing boost!
They can be applied directly to the face, the body or the hair:
• Facial care: makeup remover, protective and nutritive skincare
• Hair care: restorative treatment before washing
• Body care: nutritional, protective and repairing skincare used for massages
