We frequently get asked how oil serums are different from water-based serums and how they help your skin.

Oil Serums penetrate to the dermal layer of your skin, which is essentially your deeper, second layer that starts under the epidermis (visible layer). This is where all the magic happens! Our oil glands, hair follicles, collagen + elastin fibres, and sweat all form in the dermal layer. Nerve endings in the dermis help us feel things - ever experienced pesky pimples that you feel before you see? They start in the dermal layer and take a little while to become visible on the top surface of our skin. Since so much important activity is happening in this deeper layer, it’s beneficial to use skin care products that will penetrate through to this level daily. Oil serums are effective at addressing specific skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, dryness, dehydration, anti-aging and more! If you have specific skin concerns you’d like to heal, use an oil serum morning and night for fast powerful healing. Oil serums reveal radiance + a glow to any skin type.
