Vegan friendly moisturisers made from certified organic natural plant oils, plus natural vitamin E.
No. 8 Essentials facial moisturising oils are quite possibly New Zealand's only full range of targeted moisturising oils - each formulated for a particular skin type. Using a natural plant oil moisturiser can greatly improve the skin's condition and assist with skin problems such as acne.
These are concentrated products - moisturising lotions generally contain around 80% water - but not these beauties, they are pure goodness, so a little goes a long way.
Acne Prone Skin: This one is special as the ingredients target acne in three different ways to reduce its occurrence.

Why moisturise? Locking in skin moisture is important - your skin's outer layer is slowly fed water from the lower layers, but this water tends to evaporate and your skin can end up drier than optimal. This dry skin comes with many problems:
looks dry and can feel uncomfortable
can end up cracked and further damaged
the dead skin cells you lose naturally can end up clumped together giving a flaky appearance
This moisturising oil range is made entirely from natural plant oils extracted from various parts of plants (typically seeds and nuts). These oils contain many components that are beneficial for your skin - including some long-chain fatty acids that match those produced by your body to protect your skin by keeping it from drying out.
Method: Massage 2 drops into a clean face, morning and night. Applying to slightly damp skin (after washing or toning) will help the oil spread easily and keep that moisture in your skin.
Do not apply immediately before bed as it needs a bit of time to absorb into the skin (you want it on your face, not on your pillow!)
We recommend a patch test before use (the delicate skin inside your elbow is a good spot)
