Gaia greetings everyone and welcome to our Autumn newsy, for some of you abroad, welcome to Spring ! In this newsletter we focus on the concept of natural oil nutrition.
Various studies have revealed that oils often eliminate oils. When the skin is nourished on the surface, the natural oil production from our sebaceous oil glands subside. However, some acne sufferers still believe in stripping the skin of its natural oils leaving the face dry and under-nourished thus causing overstimulation and over production of oil.
For this reason oil-based serums can actually be great for oily skins as well as assisting acne break-outs by giving your skin radiance, whilst moisturizing and helping to prevent discolouration and assisting with facial scarring providing a light moisture to the skin. Serum oils can also calm the negative effects of harsh ingredients in products.
HOWEVER : Not all oils are the same and one should choose an oil that is heat stable and not heat sensitive as some seed oils such as Avocado, Pomegranate, Marula whilst having useful properties, tend to rancidify and oxidize quickly with the bodies own natural temperature as well as exposure to UV light. Rancid oils will lead to other skin complications.
Nutritive Skin Perfecting Oils – Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil is a ‘nutritive skin perfecting oil’ derived from liquid wax extracted from the nut of an indigenous American shrub that goes by the scientific name Simmondsia Chenensis.
The botanical name is a bit of a misnomer as the plant has no origins in China. The shrubby tree grows wild, mainly in arid regions in the south-western United States.
The Jojoba nut has been used by Native American tribes from time immemorial. The nut was ground and the paste of the nut was used in skin and hair care and the whole nut as survival food in emergencies. The wax constitutes nearly 50% of the nut and it passes through the digestive tract of mammals making this edible oil an effective laxative.
Gaia Gold Range and Jojoba Oil
With many of the Gaia Organics ‘Gold Range’ products containing Jojoba Oil in the formulations this constantly ensures that they are greatly enhanced, and their effectibility greatly increased with the infusion of this oil.
It is an extremely effective anti-aging combatant and carrier oil for the many high quality, organically sourced, essential oils featured in this product range.
The “Gold Of The Desert” as it is sometimes called is one of the finest skin perfecting nutritive oils known to man and across the board it makes its presence strongly known in our products .
