Why You Should Try Oil Cleansing

Posted by Rainshadow Labs on 11/30/2016 to Oils

Daily facial cleansing has long been considered to be one of the basic fundamental requirements for having clear and happy skin. And yet so many people still struggle with their skin despite washing religiously every day. What gives? While this might come as a surprise, for some people using a detergent or even natural soap based facial cleanser proves to be the opposite of beneficial for their skincare goals. This makes it difficult for people who still enjoy the daily ritual of washing their face, or if they are someone who wears makeup and wants to effectively wash it off at the end of the day. But there is a solution, and it might not be what you’d expect.

Posted by Rainshadow Labs on 11/28/2016 to Oils
One of the things that initially turns people off from using large amounts of oils on their bodies, hair and faces is the sometimes overly oily and even heavy feeling that can come from the oils. Some people dislike it so much that they even turn to less optimal private label skincare products just because they don’t want to deal with the oily feeling that comes from using pure plant lipids. Thankfully, there is an alternative! And better yet, it’s not even that much of a compromise. It’s called a “dry” oil, and they’re nature’s solution for those of us who don’t want to feel so oily but still want all the beautiful benefits that come from using plant oils in our skincare.

Posted by Rainshadow Labs on 11/18/2016 to Oils
Mold growth in the home can be a dangerous situation. There are a number of adverse health effects that are associated with mold. In fact, many respiratory illnesses, like asthma, have been linked to a mold presence in the home. Because plants also struggle with mold and bacteria, many have evolved their own anti-fungal/viral/bacterial compounds. The process of distilling essential oils from plants concentrates these beneficial compounds along with their signature fragrances!

Skincare trends come and go. Some are worth following, some aren’t. It’s a natural property of the industry and one that you should be aware of but don’t need to worry about following religiously. Some trends end up being industry mainstays because of how effective they are, while others are like fading flames that come and go with equal speed. One trend that has been gaining traction for a while now is the use of pure plant oils directly on the face. This manifests in the form of oil cleansing, oil based serums and even oil based sun care products.
