We are surrounded nowadays by an endless sea of creams, potions, lotions, oils and butters and it is becoming more and more difficult to know what is the best for us and our skin. As we all look for the instant cures for problematic skin and for the top sources for youthful and glowing skin it is no wonder we get confused with all the choice that surrounds us.

However one of the best things that we can do for our skin is to look for the more natural and organic ingredients that will bring out the best in our skin. It is tempting to want to lunge for the most expensive creams and to fall for their hugely tempting and alluring promises. However the more natural and the more organic the lotions and potions that we put on our skin, the better. I go back and forth between Radha Beauty Rosehip Oil and Yes To Tomatoes Clear Skin Daily Balancing Moisturizer.

So with that in mind, today we want to share the top natural oils and butters that offer the best results for beautiful skin. Naturally sourced oils and butters that are rich in natural anti-aging antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Here is our low down for the cream of the crop, the creme de la creme of the best beauty boosting oils and butters that you should be looking out for and integrating into your skin care regime.

Organic Bath Oil with Pumpkin Seed Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil

Apricot Kernel Oil

We all know the skin and health benefits of eating apricots, however there are also huge skin benefits to using apricot oil as part of a regular beauty routine. Apricot kernel oil is found inside the seeds of the apricot and it contact Linoleic essential fatty acids, Oleic and tons of Vitamin A and E. These properties are known for their ability to sooth skin by providing moisture and helping to fight against the signs of aging.

Apricot Kernel Oil is particularly beneficial for anyone suffering from very dehydrated skin as the oil provides flexibility and provides a major moisture injection. As the construction of the texture of this oil is extremely fine and delicate is it very easily absorbed into skin and is a major contender for one of the best oils for fighting fine lines and for revitalising tired and dehydrated skin.

ORGANIC Extra Virgin Coconut oil

Coconut Oil

You would have to have been living on a seriously isolated crook of this planet to not have heard about the endless benefits of coconut oil. Coconut oil is reigning supreme in the world of both healthy eating and healthy skin, so we can’t have a list of the best beauty oils, without including this little beauty. Historically used to treat skin against skin issues such as psoriasis and eczema, the benefits stretch out much further than just these two skin ailments. Coconut oil is now used for all different types of skin types and can be used in an endless amount of ways depending on your needs.

As coconut oil is antibacterial it supports the skin and with regular use it can promote a youthful and healthy appearance. It keeps skin supple and fights against the sign of aging. It is an all round winner when it comes to keeping your skin, body and even hair, in tip top condition.

Camellia Bloom Facial Oil

Organic Camellia Oil

Historically used in Japan by Geishas to keep their face, hair and body in good condition, Organic Camellia Oil has a colourful history. Having been used in Japan and China for centuries it has now made its way around the globe as one of the top oils for protecting skin against free radical damage, for refining more mature skin and for its skin nourishing properties.

It is very lightweight and therefore is very easy to absorb into the skin and doesn’t leave behind that greasy feeling. It offers a huge amount of skin nourishing properties from antioxidants, oleic acid and a whole other range of anti-aging nutrients. Organic Camellia Oil is particularly fantastic for pregnant women as not only does it soothe a wide range of skin irritations it also prevents stretch marks so this is a top oil for any women who are expecting.

Cupuacu Butter

Cupuacu Butter

Cupuacu butter comes from the cupuacu tree which can be found in the Amazon Rainforest. The gorgeous subtle scent of chocolate that this tree gives off is due to its relation to the cacao (chocolate) tree. The cupuacu butter, has been discovered to offer a number of fantastic beauty and health benefits. This delicious fruit is packed with antioxidants and many other nutrients that offer enormous benefits to skin, nails and hair. As cupuacu is bursting with phytosterols, which is a real force when it comes to supporting collagen in dry and damaged skin, it has been confirmed to stabilize emulsions which help to keep skin looking young and healthy. So this is a really great butter to be keeping an eye out for, particularly for those of you with dry skin.

ORGANIC CASTOR OIL

Castor Oil

Usually when we think of castor oil, we think of that horrid tasting liquid that some of us were forced to drink when we were young. However not only does it offer benefits to our health it also offers some great benefits to our skin too. As castor oil is a cold pressed oil, it helps to draw moisture to the skin, as it acts as a humectant. This creates a protective barrier against moisture loss and environmental damage. This is quite a special oil and not one to be underestimated as it is easier to absorb into the skin, than any other plant oil. It also works very hard to draw out pore-clogging dirt and impurities from deep within your skin.

Natural Cocoa Butter Body Butter

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is well known within the world of beauty and skincare. As cocoa butter is a very hard saturated fat and when it is warmed the butter forms an oil. That oil is incredibly effective at creating a protective layer on the top of skin and for locking in all important moisture. Cocoa butter is famous for not just moisturizing and softening skin it is also really effective at healing scars and correcting discoloration to skin.

Primrose Eye Serum

Organic Evening Primrose Oil

Organic Evening Primrose Oil is one to look out for when looking for oils that will rejuvenate your skin and help to fight the appearance and development of wrinkles. As it is extremely rich in essential fatty acids, using this oil on a regular basis can help smooth rough skin, can hydrate very dry skin and can dramatically reduce fine lines. Its benefits don’t stop there as Organic Evening Primrose Oil works to promote new skin cell growth it all helps to repair skin at a deep, cellular level, it helps to lighten dark circles under eyes and it also improves the elasticity of skin.

As you can see this is a super oil for boosting beautiful complexions and for leaving skin looking moisturized and radiant through the numerous skin benefits that it provides.

Anti Aging Serum

Pumpkin Seed Oil

Last, but by no means least is the lovely Pumpkin Seed Oil. As this oil is rich in Vitamins A,B,D and E it offers a wide range of extremely nourishing benefits to the skin. It boasts skin boosting proteins and anti-aging minerals. Not only that but it is also high in Omega 3 and 6 and these fatty acid go a long way in the fight against combatting lines and wrinkles and dehydrated skin and moisture loss. It is also high in antioxidants, zinc and is just an all round winner when it comes to gorgeous skin and glowing complexions.

With all these gorgeous natural oils and butters all around us, it has never been easier to have a choice about what we put onto our skin. So if you are looking to integrate more natural oils and butters into your beauty regime then have a look out for the above for the most natural and organic way to care for your skin.

Over the last few decades our awareness of moving back to natural ingredients and organic living has increased tenfold.  We all know the importance of selecting fresh ingredients, taking care to ensure that our products aren’t tested on animals and staying clear of nasty chemicals.  However, sometimes products that tick all the right boxes from the natural front, are slightly lacking on the luxe front.  I’m a sucker for gorgeous packaging but I’m starting to really go for more natural products- like the oil I use instead of drugstore moisturizer now. Beauty comes from within, right? Treat your body well and you’ll be glowing.

Sun Potion Ashitaba Supplement

A few years ago the world went mad for Matcha green tea.  This was a powdered tea which was packed full of antioxidants and made an excellent replacement to your morning coffee.  Matcha gave you an alkaline caffeine fix which was far better to the body than the acidic kind you get from coffee and black tea.  Well, move over Matcha because there is a new tea in town.  Brand wise Ashitaba is like the Armand de Brignac of the tea world.  Beautifully packaged with a Japanese chic, you will love bringing this out when you have guests over.  However it is the ashitaba health benefits which are incredible, these include more potent antioxidants than matcha, a neuro growth factor, it rebuilds DNA and is packed with chalcones and vitamin B12.

When it comes to our skin we need to be more aware of the contents included, which is why it is a great idea to go for natural and organic products.  However there are very few truly organic products on the market.  We searched the globe and found the incredible La Creme Beaute products.  These stunning creams are made by a former British model who realized there were no 100% organic products on the market and those that were nearly there, didn’t have that luxury feel to them.  Le Creme Beaute now offer a huge range of beautiful products including Bee Venom from organic bees!

Votary Cleansing Oil

If you prefer oils to creams then the beautifully packaged range from Votary will tick all your boxes.  Unlike many natural oils the ones developed by Votary are light enough to use under your makeup.  We think the lavender pillow spray and the super seed oil are fantastic.  The packaging will look stunning in any luxury bathroom and would make a stunning present.

Herbivore Botanicals Brighten Pineapple & Gemstone Wet Mask

The brilliant guys and girls at Herbivore Botanicals have produced a must have face mask for anyone wanting to give their face a stunning natural glow without worrying about chemical or processed ingredients. The brand is absolutely flawless with a really delicate minimal feel and stunning typography.

The more we use natural and organic products the higher the demand will become, this will mean that our designer favorites will be forced to start producing ranges like this.  So maybe it won’t be long before Chanel cosmetics go au natural and give you the gentle products you need for your body!
