Why do oils make great beauty ingredients?
Oils have been used since ancient times as a beauty product thanks to their ability to smooth and nourish skin and hair. In fact, in some countries, oils were so over priced that they were considered to be more valuable than even gold.
Argan oil is exclusively harvested in Morocco and is sometimes called Moroccan oil. It is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins F and E because of which it’s great for hair. This oil helps to increase hair’s strength and suppleness. Additionally, vitamin E helps to protect the hair’s lipids from UV damage. You can easily find argan oil in Dove Elixir Nourished Shine Hair Oil.
Macadamia oil is one of the richest sources of Omega-7 which is a fatty acid found in the natural oil on hair. It conditions and protects the hair (and which we have less of as we age).
Almond oil has always been coveted as a beauty product in Middle Eastern, Asian, and Mediterranean history. It’s naturally rich in Omega-9 which is a fatty acid that is an essential component of our hair. It’s proven to grow inside the hair and increase its strength, also making it soft and smooth.
For thousands of years, Indian women have relied on coconut oil to make their hair beautiful, soothing the scalp, adding shine, and even believing that it helps with hair growth. The smaller molecules of the oil absorb quicker and easier into skin and hair than most of the other natural oils.
