The vegetable oils contained in dry oils are particularly rich in unsaturated fatty acids (omaga 3 and omega-6). They also each have specific properties for targeted actions because they have more affinity for the skin. Dry oil will therefore be easily absorbed by the epidermis, while leaving a slightly satiny effect.

How are dry oils obtained?

To obtain dry oil, a vegetable texture agent and an emollient agent derived from coconut are added to the vegetable oils, which will make it possible to reduce the fatty aspect of the oils and give a slippery effect.

How do you choose the right dry oil?

Organic cosmetic certified dry oils are made from natural ingredients that comply with environmental standards. Conversely, the conventional cosmetic industry has developed various processes intended to improve the texture and preservation of the vegetable oils contained in dry oils. These techniques are not very respectful of the environment and alter the benefits of vegetable oil.

Avoid hydrogenated or esterified oils.  Whether they are hydrogenated, esterified or refined, they are obtained through chemical processes with harmful environmental impact. Hydrogenation is a chemical reaction.

It involves adding a molecule of dihydrogen by catalysis to modify the structure of fatty acids contained in vegetable oil. This industrial technique has the consequence of producing an instability of the molecule composing vegetable oil – transformed into saturated fatty acids -, deteriorating it and therefore altering its virtues.

Esterification is a chemical process that involves mixing vegetable oil with another natural or synthetic ingredient such as triglycerides (derived from palm oil), caprates or cocoglycerides (fatty substances derived from coconuts).

Esterification is a hot reaction that will alter the active ingredients in vegetable oil.

Without forgetting that this process often requires the addition of synthetic solvents, that is to say from petrochemicals. Esterified oil therefore contains fewer nutrients and more solvents than natural vegetable oil.

Yes, just a few drops+ heat well in the hands to increase penetration + massage gently for a couple of minutes.
