Ever been recommended a skincare product, but when you find it in stores, you don’t recognize half the ingredients on the back?
Often, just because it’s been recommended (either by a best friend or our favorite magazine), we won’t look up the ingredients. Some products claim to be ‘clean’ to ease any concern about what’s in the bottle, so we take their word for it, and lather it onto our skin without a second thought. But just like any organ, it's important to nourish your skin with quality ingredients and steer clear from cheap additives.
Because we pride ourselves on offering clean products at Fur, we’re not afraid to go into depth on each ingredient we include in our signature product, Fur Oil.
Let’s break down Fur Oil’s four main ingredients.
Jojoba oil comes directly from the jojoba plant, which is commonly used to soothe skin in fragile states, like after a bad sunburn. The plant’s natural healing components mimic the body’s moisturizing properties, which means you’re just amping up the moisturization your body would do on its own. Because of its amazing moisturizing properties, both skin and hair are left feeling silky smooth.
Grapeseed oil is literally just what it sounds like—oil from the seeds of grapes! Wine, anyone? Often used as a cooking oil, it also has components that may make it therapeutic for skincare. The oil carries Vitamin E, D, and C complexes—which is a lot to pack in one grape. It also has anti-inflammatory properties so it easily soothes, and is often used on its own as a moisturizer.
Clary Sage Oil
Clary sage oil is an antiseptic and similar to sage oil, as its name suggests. Clary sage oil has been reported to comfort during menopausal heat flashes or menstrual cramps. Additionally, it’s considered helpful in reducing stress—so much so, that it’s often used as a sleep aid to combat insomnia.
Tea Tree Oil
Perhaps one of the most common oils for skin irritation or sunburns, tea tree oil soothes, thanks to its antimicrobial components. According to Medical News Today, tea tree oil has been used as a healing treatment for over 100 years in Australia—and given the extreme climate there, those Aussies aren’t messing around! It is highly regarded for eliminating excess sebum in the pores, meaning you’re less likely to get ingrowns or bumps. Many often use it alone on their hair, skin, and nails.
We knew it was important use the highest quality ingredients because we wanted our products to work on any skin type, and work well. So when you reach for any Fur product, your skin and hair will thank you.
