Different Carrier Oils For Skin Care And Their Benefits

carrier oils for skincare and their benefits


Vegetable oils are often called carrier oils because they're commonly used in massage and aromatherapy. They do not contain any concentrated aromas so they're used to dilute essential oils and carry it onto the skin.

Carrier oils are extremely beneficial and for that reason they are very popular in the beauty industry too. They all have different properties and uses.

Here are the most common and effective carrier oils and their benefits.

      Like the oils above, shea butter also has the power to moisturize, hydrate, heal and soothe the skin. So, when mixed with these oils you immediately feel and see results. 

      If you're looking for an oil that will moisturize, heal and protect your skin to improve your overall complexion, we highly suggest you try our Veenourish body butters.

      We use cold pressed carrier oils because they have more active potential, since they haven’t been heated, distilled, or processed.
