Organic shea and hemp oils are a powerhouse pair, both rich in antioxidants, minerals and essential fatty acids that nourish and protect the skin from moisture loss, keeping it supple, plump and hydrated. Both of these deeply nourishing oils also soften and strengthen the skin and aid in natural collagen production – they're your life-fatigued skin’s new best friend. With the uplifting fragrance of Rose and Mandarin essential oils, this deeply hydrating blend is 98% organic and has been formulated for dry and sensitive skin.
Why choose body oil over lotion?
Compared to lotion, body oil is more easily absorbed by the skin, penetrating deeper and hydrating more effectively. Plus, as oil sinks into the skin faster, you can be dressed and out the door quicker! Contrary to belief, oil doesn’t clog the pores and should feel lighter than most lotions which contain emulsifying waxes that can build up on the skin and prevent the absorption of beneficial nutrients. Most lotions contain a large percentage of water – up to 90% – whereas body oils are 100% active and don’t contain filler ingredients or require preservatives. Body oils are wonderful for dry skin, as they protect the skin’s lipid barrier and prevent moisture from evaporating, locking in moisture keeping skin hydrated for longer. Our Shea & Hemp Body Oil, like all Maple & Mint skincare products, is all-natural with no hidden nasties, meaning you’re putting nothing on your skin but nature’s purest ingredients.
What else is in our Hydrating Shea & Hemp Body Oil?
Camellia oil is an excellent moisturizer, quickly absorbed. It contains vitamins A, B and E, as well as various minerals. It helps restore the skin’s pH balance.
Sweet almond oil is rich in vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, potassium and zinc, and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for sensitive skin. It’s rich in proteins that can provide amino acids for collagen production.
Rose damask oil elevates mood and promotes a feeling of calm. It’s wonderful for rejuvenating mature skin and can help slow down the signs of aging. This soothing oil is ideal for use on dry skin.
Mandarin essential oil is a sweet-smelling addition. As well as its uplifting fragrance, mandarin can diminish the appearance of scars and age spots, and minimise wrinkles.
How do I use it?
Apply daily after bathing, while skin is still damp to improve moisture absorption. A little body oil goes a long way. With regular use, you will notice that less product is required to maintain hydration, as your skin becomes healthier and more supple. Allow the body oil to fully absorb before dressing.
