The benefits of vegetable oils in our cosmetics

The skin and its needs

The skin is the largest and heaviest organ in the human body. Composed of 3 superimposed layers (epidermis, dermis and hypodermis), it is in direct contact with the external environment and protects us from its attacks (dehydration, UV rays, etc.). But not only that, it is also the origin of the sense of touch thanks to its numerous nerve endings, and it allows us to maintain an optimal body temperature.

Skin in good condition is comfortable and allows it to perform its functions, in particular thanks to the hydrolipidic film and the intercellular cement of the epidermis. These 2 elements constitute the skin's protective barrier: they ensure that skin hydration is maintained, preserve skin cells in good condition and prevent skin imbalances. They are essential for having beautiful and healthy skin.

Why choose vegetable oils as skin care?

The skin is in direct contact with the external environment and certain external factors (cold, pollution, UV) or internal factors (stress, treatments) can degrade the skin's protective barrier. The hydrolipidic film and the intercellular cement protecting and ensuring cohesion between cells are altered, causing dehydration and exposure of skin cells to external aggressions. An oil acts as a protective shield.
Thanks to its composition rich in lipids, essential compounds of skin cells, it will mix with the hydrolipidic film and reinforce the intercellular cement to prevent the evaporation of the water contained in the skin. It is therefore interesting both for dry skin, because it will nourish it by providing lipids, but also for dehydrated skin, because it will limit the loss of water from the skin.
If its texture may seem illogical for the treatment of combination to oily skin, in truth, using suitable vegetable oils is an excellent way to regulate these problems. By providing an oily substance to the skin, the sebaceous glands will not produce excess sebum, because the skin will already be protected on the surface by the vegetable oil.
Depending on their origin and their composition, vegetable oils will have properties more or less adapted to each skin problem. It is therefore important to know your skin type, and then to choose the vegetable oil corresponding to your needs.
