Body Oil versus Body Lotion
Both hydrating and nourishing – but what really is the difference between a body oil and body lotion? There are many factors that explain why a body oil is the perfect investment, but the loudest is the ability to heal and protect. Body oil is made up of molecules that penetrate the skin’s layers way faster and deeper than a lotion maximizing the amount of moisture your skin already retains. Unlike body lotions, the majority of body oils are simply made of a mixture of soothing oils – nothing more. While body lotions might be a blend of water, oil, and waxy substance called an emulsifier. Above all, body oils help create a protective barrier against external pollutions and influences while cleaning out and giving a refreshing feel to the pores.
The ultimate shortcut for instant moisture? Definitely yes.
Body lotions often penetrate the skin slower and only hydrate the surface layers, depending on the formula. Body oils nourish your skin in depth and strengthen the outer protective barrier.
BENEFIT #1: Versatile properties
One does not exclude use of the other – they just make an impact in their own special way, and together, they work as the ultimate partners. Both body oils and body lotions are designed to moisturize and nurture our skin. However, the difference between the two lies in their complexion and how they are absorbed. Rich in essential fatty acids, such as omega 3, 6, 7, and 9 that balance, detoxify, and moisten our skin, body oil instantly soaks into the outer layer of the skin and promptly enhances the skin’s quality and overall skin tone.
BENEFIT #2: The results speak for themselves
Our skin produces its own natural oil, called lipids. Basically, they’re the skin’s own natural fats. They help keep the moisture in while dirt and impurities are left out. They also help your skin’s natural repair process. Body oil resembles the natural oils that your skin produces, causing your skin to warmly welcome this well-known nourishment. You don’t even have to fear clogging your pores or breakouts since the oil travels at a higher speed. Best of all? A body oil’s secret is its potency. The high concentration makes it suitable for every skin type (even complex and oily), but particularly dry, very dry, and sensitive skin.
The most important factor that should influence your final decision, is your skin. Take time to figure out what level of hydration your body needs – additionally, you don’t have to decide. You can give both body oil and lotion a try. It’s merely a question of what your skin needs rather than which product is the best. Try adding a few drops of body oil to your favorite body lotion – this will give your skin a great hydration boost. Or use an oil under your daily cream – and don't be afraid that your skin will shine, it won’t. If you still find that an oil provides too much moisture during daytime, use it under your night cream and let it penetrate the skin while you sleep.
BENEFIT #3: Body oil lasts
A little goes a long way. Another rewarding benefit of an oil is how economical it can be. A body oil is extremely durable, and you can get far with just a bit. You’ll be surprised how much a few drops will spread.
We’ve crafted our Nourishing Body Oil with all-natural and organic bases to release the endless list of benefits and nutrients into your skin. Our body oil is made from pure Nordic essential oils as cloudberry and blueberry seed oil extract to moisturize, soothe, and rejuvenate the skin. It counteracts dryness, lack of elasticity, and premature aging by brightening, nurturing, and protecting the skin. In other words, it revives the skin and gives it a healthy and warm glow. The oil can be used in many ways – depending on what your skin needs.
Soft, super-silky skin and a protected barrier. Apply the oil while your skin is still a bit damped after your bath. This is when the skin needs extra moisture and is more absorbent towards all the benefits. If you’re in a slow-Sunday-selfcare-mood, add a few drops of the oil into a warm bath. As you soak, the body oil and bath water will gently hydrate your skin. So, is it worth the money? The answer is obviously yes! Psst… Health and beauty come from within – our body oil is so pure and simple in formulation that it’s even safe to eat.
