EARTHWISE BEAUTY - Magical Babassu Facial Oil

EARTHWISE BEAUTY - Magical Babassu Facial Oil

Multifunctional oil for dry skin.

Creamy, velveteen, light-feel Magical Babassu Facial Oil is all about hydrating, softening, and smoothing the skin without the heavy or oily feel of some richer, thicker face oils meant for drier or more mature skin types. They recommend this oil as your first choice among their products for stubbornly dry or rough facial skin for all ages.

The key ingredient here is hand-extracted, cold-press, unrefined babassu oil from Brazil, with its light and powdery feel, "dry butter" consistency, meltability on contact with the skin. 

Babassu oil is also often described as slightly cooling. It also minimizes pores looking and decreases puffiness appearance.

Brazil nut oil, with its exceptionally high linoleic acid content, is highly beneficial for the care of wrinkled, mature, neglected, and dry to very dry skin. It nourishes on a deeper level and improves firmness looking.

Sacha inchi from Chile is highly praised for its skin compatibility and high content of Omega 3s. It is a thinner oil that is very hydrating. Sacha inchi provides a high moisture factor.

Earthwise Beauty Fair Trade shea butter from West Africa (totally unrefined and hand-extracted) penetrates dry skin well and, again, feels more powdery than oily. Shea butter softens the skin, and protects from environmental factor. While using shea butter alone is not feasible because it stays quite hard at room temperature, as a component of a facial oil, it lends the oil body, incredible nonoily creaminess.

The scent of this facial oil comes foremost from the undeodorized, virgin babassu oil, which is a little nutty and earthy. Then, softer, sweet florals have been added in a small amount: forest-honey-like, delicate mimosa, and aquatic, fresh pink lotus (I take a whiff of my properly diluted pink lotus and want to swoon).

The consistency of Magical Babassu will range from almost liquid to semi-solid depending on your ambient temperature. Make sure to store it inside a cabinet to protect the precious unrefined oils from light.

How does this facial oil compare to the other ones they offer?

This product will benefit all skin types and overall will be a step or two more emollient than Green Leaves & Co. or Tangerine Skies Facial Oil. It is a “stronger” product for skin dryness or roughness than Green Leaves and Tangerine Skies overall, especially for mature, dry, and very dry skin types.

Certified cruelty free, vegan, cold process, handcrafted, fair trade.

For all skin types, especially dry to very dry, reddened or inflamed, allergy-prone, sensitive, normal, and combination. Most acne-prone skin types should find this oil noncomedogenic.

How to use: Massage a small amount of the Magical Babassu Facial Oil onto freshly cleaned, still moist face, ideally over a facial oil primer such as their Carrot-a-Day Face and Eye Serum (an aloe-based primer will merge with the oil and facilitate its absorption). Use day and night or just at night, more if you feel drier and less if your skin is moderately dry (oily zones can be omitted entirely). Also safe to use around the eyes and on the lips, eyebrows, neck, and décolleté. Feel free to add a very small amount along with warm water to your dry face cleanser, scrub, or mask. An easy-to-use glass dropper will be included with your order to make for simpler application of this product when liquid.
