What's in Rozetree Botanicals' Body oil?
Learn about our new body oils:
We recently released two new body oils: Unscented Body Oil and Moisture Boost Body Oil. Moisture Boost is scented with a blend of skin friendly essential oils. Unscented has no added essential oils making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Whenever possible, we use organic plant oils and essential oils. The Squalane we use is derived from olives. The unique combination of oils we chose provides a fast absorbing, non-greasy product that leaves your skin soft, smooth and supple. Read on to see the list of the oils we use and why we use them.
Jojoba Oil is technically a wax and not a true oil. It is very compatible with our skin because it contains the same waxy esters that are present in our own sebum. It has anti-inflammatory properties, won't clog pores and helps to maintain moisture. Jojoba is also somewhat occlusive, meaning it helps prevent water loss from the skin. It's good for all skin types, is hypo-allergenic and will not stain clothes.
Avocado oil is pressed from the delicious fruit of the avocado. It's packed with protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E. It is an excellent oil for dry or damaged skin and has been shown to be helpful in increasing collagen synthesis. Avocado oil is high in carotenoids which help to protect skin against the damaging effects of UV exposure.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil
Meadowfoam is a wildflower native to the northwestern US. It is an unusual plant oil due to its long chain fatty acid composition making very stable. Although it is quite thick, it does not feel greasy and adheres well to the skin, providing protection. A study at Oregon State University found that after sun exposure, Meadowfoam oil appeared to prevent the damaging skin effects from UVB rays including sun-induced aging and skin wrinkling.
Camellia Seed Oil
Rice Bran Oil
Rice Bran Oil, also a popular oil in Japan, is pressed from the hard, outer layer of rice, called the bran. It's an excellent source of plant based squalene, a vital part of our skin's protection. It contains ferulic acid, an important antioxidant for cell membranes and helps suppress excess melanin production. Rice Bran oil has been studied for its ability to absorb a very high percent of UV rays helping to protect the skin from effects of sun exposure.
Apricot Seed Oil
Red Raspberry Seed Oil
Pressed from the seeds of raspberries, its lightweight and won't clog pores. Some studies have shown that it can help protect against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays, although it is not recommended as a replacement for sunscreen. Raspberry Seed oil is a superb antioxidant source due to its high amount of tocopherols (Vitamin E).
A light weight oil making up to 10-12% of your skin’s natural oils. Unfortunately after age 30, production slows significantly which contributes to dry skin. Squalane is helpful in preventing water loss from the skin, helps to balance the skin's natural oil production and helps protect our skin from the damage of UV exposure. It is a powerful antioxidant preventing free radical damage to our skin and is good for all skin types. In studies, it has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and help stimulate collagen production. The squalane in our products is derived from olives.
