The term "dry oil" may seem like a bit of an oxymoron, I mean how can an oil be dry and oily? Well the term really is not about how the oils feels but rather how quickly it absorbs into your skin. Oils have three rates of speed at which they are absorbed into your skin: slow, medium, and fast.
It is the fast absorbing oils that make up the category of dry oils. Dry oils are mostly made from vegetables and other botanicals that are high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids and fall into the Omega-6 acids category.
Omega-6 oils are round in oils such as soy bean and safflower and the best ingredients for creating lightweight moisturizers that are used to enhance the appearance and eliminate dryness from your hair, skin, and nails.
Our Moisturizing Dry Oil is primarily made with decadent Rose Hip oil, that contains a large amounts of antioxidants that can help to protect your skin, promote healthy skin, and help with managing dry, itchy skin. And it does all of this without the tacky residue typically experienced after using heavy oils and butters...which does not feel great in the warm summer months.
How To Use It
Dry oil works best when applied to DAMP skin. We made the choice to place our lux oil into a spray bottle to allow for easy application to your skin and hair.
We recommend that our Lux Body Moisturizing Oil be used in the Spring and the Summer. It allows you get that beautiful skin glow, without the tacky residue.
Things to Know
Even with all of the benefits of dry oils, you want to make sure that you do not have an allergic reaction to them. We have formulated our dry oil without the popular cosmetic ingredient fractionated cocoanut oil due to a number of people who we have spoken to that are allergic to it, and experience itchiness, rashes, and other skin irritations.
We recommend that when you use any oil for the first time that you apply it to a small patch of skin, and allow 24 hours to pass to see how your skin reacts.
The Bottom Line
Dry oils are:
- A great way to moisturize your skin without the feeling of the greasy tackiness that is generally experienced with heavy oils and butters.
- Are lightweight and absorb quickly into your skin.
- Mainly are derived from plant-based sources.
