When it comes to skincare, oil-based products can offer comprehensive protection and nourishment. Such formulations work to strengthen skin's barrier, provide hydration and seals in moisture, all the while delivering much-need active ingredients.

Protection and nourishment

Sol de Janeiro’s Rio Radiance SPF 50 Body Oil Sunscreen deeply nourishes with pataua oil while pongamia seed extract helps protect skin from environmental aggressors.

Golden mica instantly adds a gorgeous shimmer that looks beautiful on all skin tones, while the beachy Cheirosa 87 scent with notes of solar tuberose and leite de coco is a soothing element.

This fast-absorbing body oil is also enriched with shimmering gold mica particles that gives you an instant luminous and sun-kissed radiance.

Deep cleansing and energising

Shu Uemura’s BlackOil Pore Purifying Fresh Cleansing Oil harnesses the intense power of Japanese black charcoal and precious black rice to provide long lasting freshness and superior cleansing best suited for oily and combination skin.

Providing instant pore purification, it effectively removes dirt, dust, excess sebum and makeup, including waterproof mascara.

Ingredients include Japanese black rice which contains more than 18 amino acids designed to support healthy skin balance and prevent the degradation of collagen and hyaluronic acid while promoting anti-oxidation to the skin’s barrier.

It also contains Japanese charcoal which has moisturising benefits and mild peeling agent AHA/LHA which is designed to gently exfoliate the skin, promote skin smoothness and reduce the appearance of blackheads.

Finding that balance

Krave Beauty’s Oil La La is a balancing, skin-soothing watery oil serum that supports healthy sebum composition to calm the skin, and prevent current and future breakouts.

While some acne treatments dry out the skin and banish your natural oils, this products’ blend of linoleic-acid rich oils, peptides and vitamins offer a skin-deep solution to soothe, relieve congestion and rebalance the natural oils.

Made for all skin types, it balances the skin by making your sebum more fluid and less pore-clogging for fewer breakouts and decreased congestion while preventing the skin from drying out thanks to the inclusion of rosehip oil.

For that fresh feeling

Omno’s deodorants, available in three options, include the earthy Moonatic, designed to invoke the sense of a moonlit forest with its blend of petitgrain, cypress oil and sage.

The natural deodorant works by neutralising odour-causing bacteria and absorbing moisture through plant-based ingredients like triethyl citrate and polyglyceryl-2 caprate.

Essentially, these ingredients inhibit the “sweat binding site” on the bacteria, preventing it from metabolising the sweat in the first place, an approach that maintains the balance of the skin’s ecosystem and allows wearers to feel fresh all day long.

The use of ingredients like hyaluronic acid and hydrolysed pea protein are designed to hydrate and brighten underarm skin, as well as increase the skin’s defence against light-induced damage.

Fighting wrinkles

Esmi Skin Minerals’ 24K Gold Nourishing Oil aims at counteracting signs of premature skin ageing with antioxidant action.

The oil’s luxurious 24k gold flakes improve elasticity, boosts blood circulation for a glowing complexion and increase firmness to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Being a non-greasy product, it’s perfect for combination to dry skin as a moisturiser, addressing dryness, dehydration, ageing, fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and decolletage.

The trio of coconut, jojoba and avocado oils are excellent moisturisers, rich in skin-saving fatty acids and a combination of powerful vitamins and antioxidants.

It also contains rosehip oil, which is brimming with tissue and cell regeneration fatty acids and antioxidants that address signs of ageing and pigmentation, while hydrating and healing damaged skin.
