Which oils are best for your skin?

Facial oils have become quite a trend. More and more, people are realizing the benefits of using a small amount of oil for treating skin, hair, and nails, rather than relying on a cabinet full of products that contain synthetic ingredients. But with so many choices out there, how do you know which ones to use? We’ve taken a look at some of the most popular options.

  • Argan Oil – has become one of the most common oils on the market today. Argan oil performs well on hair, strengthening weak strands and reducing dryness. For skin, however, the high concentration of oleic acid can clog pores and cause breakouts.
  • Shea Butter – is widely used as a moisturiser, and does not clog pores. Raw shea butter is best, but it can be quite expensive. While it doesn’t clog pores, it’s not as effective as some other oils when using it as a cleanser to remove makeup, unclog pores, and reduce blackheads.
  • Jojoba Oil – has also been widely used for hair and skin. It’s often used in skin cleansers, because it unclogs pores. Jojoba oil is generally well absorbed by the skin.
  • Macadamia Nut Oil – has most recently come to the attention of skincare experts for its versatility and natural ingredients. It’s rich in palmitoleic acid, which is chemically similar to the skin’s natural oil. It has anti-bacterial properties and doesn’t clog pores. It can be used for cleansing and moisturising, and works well on hair and nails too. Macadamia nut oil also reduces acne by balancing the skin’s oil production.

Availability of Macadamia Oil

The amazing qualities of macadamia oil for skin, hair, and nails, combined with the scarcity of this product for skincare, led us to introduce Umoja Gold. We realized that consumers were hungry for a versatile and completely natural product.

It’s true that there are plenty of oils on the market today that can be used in a variety of cosmetic ways. But macadamia nut oil is the most versatile and best absorbed by the body. Give Umoja Gold a try, and we bet you’ll make it your primary skincare product.
