    FAQ

    Collapsible content

    How do I apply my oil to the skin?

    Place 3 to 5 drops in the palm of your hand, then gently massage into the face, body and/or hair, avoiding contact with the eyes. The precious oil can be used every day, morning or evening, as you wish.

    Morning routine

    Apply every morning after cleansing the face and body, preferably before applying cream, to allow the skin to absorb the treatment.

    Night routine

    Apply every evening after cleansing the face and body, just before going to bed, so that the active ingredients penetrate throughout the night as the skin regenerates.

    How do I determine my skin type?

    To determine your skin type, follow these steps.

    1. Prepare your skin

    Start by removing your make-up completely and washing your face with a gentle cleanser. By the way, did you know that jojoba oil is a great 100% natural make-up remover that takes care of your skin at the same time? Next, wait an hour without applying any products to your skin.

    2. Examine your skin

    After an hour, dab your T-zone (forehead and nose) with a tissue. If sebum has been transferred to the tissue, your skin is either oily or combination. Also, find out how you feel. If your skin feels tight after washing, it's probably dry. If it feels refreshed, it's probably oily.

    Don't hesitate to use our online diagnosis to find out which product is best for you.

    Here are the different skin types.

    Normal skin

    It produces just the right amount of sebum to stay hydrated, protected and comfortable without shine.

    Dry skin

    It is desperately short of sebum, tight, uncomfortable and flaky.

    Oily skin

    It tends to be shiny all over the face. It is generally thicker, with dilated pores and irregular skin texture.

    Mixed skin

    It is often rather oily on the T-zone (where the sebaceous glands are most numerous) while the cheeks are dry and tight.

    It is important to note that the condition of the skin can vary according to external factors such as climate, diet, stress, etc. It is therefore advisable to re-evaluate your skin type regularly to adapt your skincare routine. It is therefore advisable to regularly re-evaluate your skin type to adapt your skincare routine.

    Can oil be used on oily skin?

    Yes, you can use an oil on oily skin, as long as you choose the right oil. Contrary to popular belief, some oils are capable of regulating sebum production and restoring the complex balance of your epidermis.

    Here are some plant oils recommended for oily skin:

    • Jojoba oil: Similar to the sebum produced by the body, this oil is highly prized by our skin and helps to rebalance sebum production.
    • Black cumin oil: Antibacterial, black cumin oil effectively eliminates skin imperfections.
    • Hemp oil: Deeply moisturises the skin without leaving a greasy finish.

    It's important to note that even if oily skin doesn't need to be nourished, hydration is essential. Poor hydration could encourage the epidermis to produce even more sebum in order to hydrate itself, aggravating the vicious circle of oily skin. So it's essential to work directly on the skin with the right skincare products.

    What are the best plant oils for moisturising, nourishing, protecting, regenerating, soothing or purifying the skin?

    Here are a few plant oils that are often recommended for their beneficial properties for the skin.

    To moisturise and nourish the skin
    • Hemp oil: Soothing, softening and nourishing, this oil is ideal for delicate, dry skin.
    • Argan oil: Obtained from argan seeds, this oil is nourishing, protective and restructuring.
    • Macadamia oil: Known for its moisturising and anti-ageing properties.
    To protect and regenerate the skin
    • Prickly pear oil: Known for its regenerating and anti-wrinkle properties.
    • Argan oil: Ultra-nourishing, this oil helps to maintain skin hydration and combat the effects of time.
    To soothe the skin
    • Jojoba oil: Known for its protective properties, it also restores the skin's elasticity.
    • Calendula oil: Renowned for its soothing and healing properties.
    To purify the skin

    It is important to note that the effectiveness of these oils may vary according to skin type.

    What are the differences between vegetable oils and essential oils?

    Vegetable oils and essential oils both come from nature, but they are very different in terms of composition, origin, method of production and use.

    Vegetable oils are fats that nourish and protect the skin, while essential oils are concentrates of volatile substances with therapeutic properties.

    Vegetable oil

    They are extracted from oleaginous plants such as baobab and sunflower, or from dried fruit, seeds or flowers. They contain vitamins and fatty acids, and have nutritive, protective, softening and regenerative properties that are beneficial for the skin. They can be used or eaten pure. They can also be used as a base for diluting essential oils.

    Essential oil

    They are obtained from the flowers, stems, roots or leaves of plants, often by distillation. Their therapeutic properties (toning, digestive, soothing, etc.) vary according to their origin. They generally need to be diluted, for example in a vegetable oil, and can also be inhaled. Care must be taken, however, as there are contraindications to the use of essential oils, as some of their chemical components can be dangerous.

    How should plant oils be used on the skin?

    Here are a few tips on how to use plant oils on the skin:

    Moisturising: You can apply your oil before or after your cream or serum.

    As our oils are non-comedogenic, they allow the active ingredients in your cream to pass through. Applying them on top of your cream or serum will provide you with lipids. They will form a protective film on the skin's surface that will prevent the evaporation of water and keep it well hydrated.

    Massage

    For the body, massage in zone by zone (bust, arms, stomach, thighs) using circular movements. For the face, apply the oil or treatment in smoothing movements, starting from the centre and working outwards.

    Pure application

    You can also use a pure vegetable oil. All you need is a few drops, warmed in the palm of your hand and applied with a gentle massage, to reap all the benefits.

    Other uses

    Vegetable oils can also be used to remove make-up, as day and night creams, as eye care, as oil baths for the hair, or to revive dull complexions.

    Which plant oils for which skin type?

    Choose a plant oil according to your skin type for double effectiveness. There are a huge number of different oils, all of which have their own properties and are therefore adapted to specific skin types and problems.

    Oily skin

    The best oils for oily skin are jojoba oil, black cumin oil, hemp oil and L'Huile Précieuse.

    Mixed skin

    The ideal plant oils for combination skin should be gentle and non-greasy, regulating and balancing. The best plant oils for combination skin are jojoba oil, black cumin oil, hemp oil, argan oil, macadamia oil and L'Huile Précieuse.

    Dry skin

    Plant oils for dry skin should have nourishing, protective, softening, anti-inflammatory and emollient properties. The vegetable oils most commonly used are argan oil, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, prickly pear oil and L'Huile Précieuse.

    What properties do plant oils have for the skin?

    Skin oils are natural products that can have many benefits, depending on their composition and how they are used.

    Vegetable oils are extracted from plants, fruit, seeds or nuts. They are rich in fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. They can nourish, moisturise, protect, regulate, heal and soften the skin. They are suitable for all skin types, but you need to choose the one that best suits your needs and sensitivities. Jojoba oil is ideal for all skin types, including oily skin, because its light, penetrating texture protects the dermis. Argan oil is recommended for dry and mature skin, because it has nourishing, regenerating and anti-ageing properties, while hempseed oil is better suited to oily skin.

    How do I store my oil?

    Store at room temperature, out of sight and reach of children, in a dry place protected from UV rays and light.
    Avoid severe thermal shock.
