What to remember when choosing naturals
Even ingredients with the same INCI name can represent various chemistries, depending on the plant's origin and how the material is processed and refined.
When sourcing vegetable oils for cosmetic use, always request a detailed composition breakdown and compare samples and chemical analyses before making a final choice.
Although specialty cosmetic grade plant oils carry a higher price tag, they can be more efficient long-term, negating the need for antioxidant stabilizers and other additives. As a result, not only is the raw material superior, but the final product is also safer and more stable, with good sensory properties and the functionality expected from cosmetics, such as improved skin condition and appearance.
