Did you know typical moisturizers only penetrate the top layer of your skin. Blossom Jar's ingredients are able to naturally penetrate much deeper - to where skin health and anti-aging matters.

We Love Oil

blossom jar’s moisturizing face and body oils bring out the inherent nutritional properties of nature without synthetic manufacturing or chemical manipulation. Centuries-old beauty rituals (dating as far back as Cleopatra, who herself was an almond oil devotee!) and recent scientific studies alike have shown that oils are naturally recognized by the body’s cellular structure. Oil-based products like blossom jar are able to penetrate and help heal the deeper layers of the skin, reaching down to where no typical cream or lotion can.

For lasting skin health and beauty, choose ingredients that your body will welcome!

 

Debunking the Oil Myth

Oil causes breakouts. Oil leaves skin feeling sticky. Oil smudges make-up. Sound familiar? All of these claims are simply untrue.

In the past when oil was categorized as ‘bad,’ the real culprits were cheap mineral oil and petrolatum – fillers for many synthetic beauty products. Natural plant and nut oils, like almond, rosehip and apricot, are completely different. If you want youthful and healthy skin, oils are among the best face and body moisturizers you can find!

Want more information? Here’s a short reading list of articles and books (and one awesome video about the cosmetics industry) that debunk the crazy oil myth for good.
