Among our exceptional ingredients are several carefully selected precious and organic vegetable oils . We have created perfect synergies of ingredients, between effectiveness and sensoriality, for a captivating and luxurious user experience.

But why do we choose to integrate vegetable oils into our exceptional treatments? What are their benefits on skin and hair? Our answers in this article.

Why choose vegetable oils?

Thanks to the richness of nature, there are many exquisite vegetable oils that can be used in the world of cosmetics. These oils with multiple benefits are delicately applied to the skin, providing it with essential fatty acids which penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis. A subtle film is then deposited on the surface of the skin, protecting it from external aggressions such as pollution, UVA, UVB or even oxidative stress.

Vegetable oils allow us to benefit from the treasures of nature to take care of our skin. Of course, we recommend that you opt for quality vegetable oils, certified organic and extracted by first cold pressing .

Indeed, the more qualitative a vegetable oil, the more it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants as well as omega-3 and omega-6, which fight against premature aging of the skin.

Good to know: vegetable oils can be used on the face, body and hair!

Vegetable oil vs. essential oil

Vegetable oils are sometimes confused with essential oils . However, they are completely different oils.

To obtain vegetable oil, oil fruit seeds or fruit stones must be pressed. We then obtain a liquid that is both greasy, oily and fluid which can be applied to the skin and hair.

The essential oil can be obtained by different types of distillation and is a powerful concentrate which must be applied in small touches and following the instructions for use.

Vegetable oils integrated into exceptional Théobroma treatments

We use several vegetable oils to make our treatments, including:

  • Argan oil : it hydrates, nourishes and protects the skin. It has a high content of antioxidants, making it an anti-aging ally. It is found in our Xo-Chiq Beauty Oil , which can be used on the face, body and hair.
  • Apricot oil : it nourishes, tones and protects. This oil is light, non-greasy, and ideal for restoring elasticity to the skin.
  • Castor oil : it softens and moisturizes. Castor oil is ideal for stimulating collagen production. It is also known to calm irritations and itching.
  • Macadamia oil : It intensely hydrates thanks to fatty acids and vitamins A and E, while nourishing and improving the elasticity of the skin. It also offers antioxidant protection and soothes irritation, thus strengthening the skin barrier.

Good to know : carrot macerate is obtained by macerating carrots in an oily body. This is the process used when there is no stone to press.
