When people find out we own a natural skincare company, the first question they usually ask is ‘What is the best skin oil for me?’  Of course, we’re only too glad to help, and always begin by discussing the person’s needs, skin type and any concerns they have in regard to their skin.  

You see, there is a vast range of skin oils on the market, from pure, plant-powered blended oils like those in our own range, to inferior formulas that are bulked out with cheap, inactive ingredients. There are also many skin types, skin issues and ailments, as well as allergens to take into account. That’s why it’s important to analyse the ingredients, their benefits, any additives and what therapeutic value you can expect to gain from using that particular oil on your skin before you go ahead and apply anything.

So, Where Do We Start?

Within the Cannabella range, there are four skin oil treatments, each with a different – though in some instances overlapping – purpose and suitability.  The first and simplest question is ‘Where are you looking to apply your skin oil’? If you’re looking for a body oil to help nourish and smooth your skin, leaving it supple and smelling incredible, look no further than our La Tropica Body Oil. La Tropica is a heaven-scent blend of eleven different plant oils, including unfiltered hemp oil, watermelon seed oil, camellia oil and jojoba oil. It is also enriched with Caprylic triglyceride, which is made by combining coconut oil with glycerin. This compound creates a barrier on the skin’s surface that reduces dryness by locking in moisture. La Tropica is suitable for all skin types and is formulated to soften and hydrate dry and sunburned skin.

Which is the Best Skin Oil for My Face, Then?

If you answered ‘face’ instead of body to our first question, we have a choice of three hydrating botanical facial oils for you, depending on what you’re after. If your skin is beginning to show signs of ageing – fine lines, increased dryness, loss of elasticity – we recommend our Complex CoQ10 Serum.  Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that helps boost collagen, fight free radicals, and reduce signs of ageing in our skin. It’s something our bodies naturally produce to help with growth and maintenance, however we make less than we need as we grow older. That’s where our serum – with its combination of unfiltered Hemp Seed Oil, CoQ10, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C – can help. It’s specifically designed to address the causes and symptoms of the ageing process and start you on the path to nourished, glowing and more youthful-looking skin.

What About for Younger Skins?

Ageing not a concern for you?  We recommend selecting between our Renewal and Clarify serums. These are both suitable for those for whom fine lines are yet to be a key concern.  Clarify is our ultra-lightweight clarifying face serum, designed to help alleviate the symptoms of acne for those prone to breakouts. With the anti-inflammatory benefits of Hemp Seed Oil combined with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory Turmeric and Sandalwood, our Clarify Serum is a product any acne sufferer should try for noticeable improvements. Finally, our award-winning Renewal Serum is an outstanding ‘all-rounder’ when it comes to facial oil-based products.  Nourishing, soothing and super-quenching, it may help to reduce early signs of ageing and improve your skin’s elasticity, tone and texture.  Winner of the 2020 Cannabis Awards Product of the Year, this serum is formulated with 14 different plant oils including (of course!) Hemp Seed Oil, Camellia Oil, Broccoli Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil and many more. This is our best-selling product for a reason – it has delivered improvements to skin tone, elasticity, moisture levels and appearance for hundreds of devoted customers. 

We hope this helped you to work out which is the best oil for you!  As with all skincare products, always ‘patch test’ a small quantity of the product somewhere not visible to ensure there are no unknown allergies or sensitivities before applying to your face.
