Why face oil at all? Face oil as a miracle curel
Face oils are no longer a secret of beauty experts! A facial oil in your own routine is particularly recommended for sensitive skin or skin that is prone to problems. Whether summer or winter - there are face oils for every skin type that are tailored to the individual skin texture or the corresponding skin problem.
The uncomplicated application is just one of the many great advantages of facial oils. Pure oils also have a variety of powers:
Synthetic additives - not with facial oils: High-quality oils do not require the addition of synthetic preservatives or emulsifiers.
That gets under the skin: Pure vegetable oils have the ability to penetrate better and deeper into the skin, even deeper layers of the skin get something like this.
The key to skin antioxidants: Antioxidants provide protection against free radicals that can attack and age our skin. Face oils therefore make an excellent contribution to the cell health of our skin.
The skin in balance: Facial oils with purely natural ingredients restore balance by supporting the skin's own functions. Our skin needs time to get rid of the ballast of synthetic materials.
All of these advantages and more optimize the natural functioning of the skin!
Oil mixed with water is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and molds. To prevent the formation of such fungi, preservatives are often added to creams, but these can disrupt or even kill our skin flora - a harmful cycle!
Vegetable oils, on the other hand, nourish and care for the skin all around without having any negative effects.
A cream made from purely natural ingredients can be mixed with pure oils to achieve special effects. Our TocoCare balm is ideal for this purpose: Our balm offers rich care for face and body that provides intensive moisture for dry and stressed skin. TocoCare Balsam cares for sensitive skin with shea butter and coconut oil. Reddened and irritated main areas and stressed parts of the body are strengthened with the help of natural vitamin E.
Vitamin E a discovery that changed our livese
Tocotrienol is the higher form of vitamin E. The vitamin has many great properties that benefit our skin. Unfortunately only a few people know about this topic so far, so it is important to us to explain the general misconception regarding the topic of vitamin E! Because the lack of vitamin E shows itself mainly through dry and wrinkled skin, but also through poor and slow wound healing.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant - the skin is optimally protected against free radicals, among other things. Vitamin E counteracts premature aging and keeps our skin fresh and young for longer. In addition to slowing down skin aging, tocotrienol also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. This accelerates the healing of wounds in the skin and ensures that pimples and impurities heal more quickly. Vitamin E is a must-have, especially for dry skin, as it strengthens the natural protective barrier. This promotes cell renewal in the skin and supports the moisture balance. The improvement and increase of the moisture balance of the skin and the containment of UV-related skin changes such as pigment spots, sunburn and skin aging is another positive effect of vitamin E. In addition, the resistance of the skin increases and can thus protect against harmful environmental influences such as UV rays.
All the positive properties of vitamin E brought us to the conclusion that everyone should have access to unpolluted cosmetics with this unique additive, the vitamin E complex.
Face oils are very economical products. 1 to 2 drops are enough for daily care of the face. The rule here is: less is more!
Not only the yield, but also the versatile use of oils is a big topic in minimalism. Face oils can be used as care, but also as cleansing or as a base for masks and peelings. Our nail beds and hair tips are also grateful for a pampering treatment with high-quality oils.
The oil is best applied in the morning and in the evening after cleansing on the still damp skin on the face, neck and, if necessary, on the décolleté. The skin can also be moistened with a facial toner without any problems. Pure rose water in combination with the face oil can protect against redness. Our tip for application: oils can be applied even better with moistened fingers.
The best face oil for my skin type
Every skin is different, so the different face oils have a different effect on everyone. Depending on the effect you want to achieve, a different oil is recommended. What is too rich for combination skin can be just the thing for dry skin and therefore the perfect choice. It is therefore important to have professional and individual advice on this topic or a competent contact person if you have any questions.
Natural oils as true anti-aging miracle weapons
With around 3 million cells per cm², the skin is the largest human organ. These cells can be attacked by free radicals.
Free radicals arise, for example, from:
- Environmental influences such as UV and infrared rays, as well as air pollution
- Autoimmune processes
- Consumption of alcohol, tobacco and unhealthy foods
- Antioxidants bind free radicals, which removes oxidative stress in the cells, which can lead to premature skin aging.
Tocotrienols are particularly effective because they can cross the cell membrane and act directly in the cell.
The rich care stimulates the skin's own immune system and thus improves cell protection, but also prevents the breakdown of collagen fibers in the cells before direct anti-aging.

Everyone from combination skin with blemished skin gets the right product!!
If you are struggling with blemished skin, steer clear of comedogenic beauticians! Mineral oils, silicones, emulsifiers and synthetic surfactants, but also artificial fragrances, are considered to be highly comedogenic. These ingredients clog the pores and thus promote impurities.
Blemished and combination skin can be well cared for with non-comedogenic to slightly comedogenic oils. It is important here that the care is not too rich.
