The Facial Oil Conundrum

The beauty world has seen a distinctive rise in facial oils and when many people have led a lifetime avoiding oil-based products, it’s no wonder this can leave us confused!

Let’s set the record straight – facial oils will not make your skin oilier if you are using the right oil in the right quantity. 

In fact – the opposite is true, a facial oil (as opposed to a cream) works with your skins natural metabolism, it heals from the inside out, helping to stabilise and balance production of sebum…without leaving a ‘film’ as many creams do.  As a result, they also help prevent acne or breakouts.

So YES – the beauty ingredient that may once have been your feared enemy is in fact your best friend and can literally be transformative.

Two of La Sultane de Saba’s fastest selling and most raved about products are their precious and organic facial oils … with very good reason, but which one is right for you?

La Sultane de Saba has had pure organic Argan Oil within its hero range since it was born over 10 years ago!  Working with Fair Trade co-operatives to create an oil which is 99% pure unrefined Argan Oil and the remainder 1% made up with either calming Orange Blossom or toning Rose to help enhance the benefits and fragrance.  Packed with carotenoids, vitamin E and fatty acids such as oleic acid, making it an effective antioxidant that protects the skin.  
This is the perfect oil to help heal and repair the complexion, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and acne.  Exceptional for dry to very dry or irritated skin.

Awarded the Beauty Shortlist Editor’s Choice 2016 award, La Sultane de Saba is renowned for its Prickly Pear Facial Oil.

Far lighter than Argan Oil, this organic, fair trade oil sourced from Tunisia, absorbs incredibly quickly and retains an astonishing amount of moisture which helps to smooth and plump the skin.  This oil protects against free radicals, stimulates skin cell growth, and reduces inflammation. It’s easily absorbed without leaving any oily residue.
