Your Skin Craves These Oils

The Best Oils For Skin
Wellness fads come and go, but Coconut and Olive Oil are in it for the long haul when it comes to maintaining glowing, beautiful skin. The cultures to which they are endemic (think India and Italy, respectively) have always known this. Now, thankfully, so do we… which is why they’re star players in our Castile Body Wash. But what exactly is it about these two amazing oils that make them such excellent allies for your skin?

The Benefits of Coconut Oil for Skin
Miraculous, Vitamin E-rich Coconut Oil is comprised of medium-chain fatty acids. When applied to skin, it forms a protective barrier that helps shield skin from environmental toxins. Coconut Oil has anti-aging properties and helps skin remain youthful and soft by replacing expired skin cells with new ones. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is wonderful for hydrating and soothing dry, irritated skin without clogging pores. Coconut Oil is thought to help mitigate conditions such as:

- Acne
- Dryness and redness
- Wrinkles and fine lines

The Coconut Oil we use in our Castile Body Wash (and in all our products containing Coconut Oil, such as our Lip Balm) is organic.

The Benefits of Olive Oil for Skin
Nutrient-dense Olive Oil is packed with skin-plumping Squalene and revitalizing antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, E, D, & K, which help slow the appearance of aging. Rich in essential fatty acids, Olive Oil helps keep skin glowing and toned. It helps fight free-radicals and mitigate the effects of photoaging. Olive Oil is thought to help mitigate conditions such as:

- Razor burn
- Dryness
- Photoaging
- Devitalized, dull skin

Like our Coconut Oil, the Olive Oil we use in our Castile Body Wash is organic and sourced with respect for people, planet, and purity.
