Skin care oils boast natural benefits

Whether it is argan oil, jojoba oil, olive oil or kukui oil, incorporating oil into a skin care regimen is one of the hottest beauty trends.

In fact, according to a recent blog post, titled "You Look Like Sisters!" by research company NPD Group, in prestige skin care alone, sales of facial oils in 2012 grew by double digits over 2011, and more than doubled since 2008.

There's no doubt that manufacturers are heeding the call to bring to market this multi-use magic in a bottle. One such example is Crème of Nature, which recently introduced its 100% Pure Argan Oil for skin and hair.

Beauty brand Derma E has developed its Skin, Hair and Nail Oil with organic argan and jojoba oils, plus kukui oil, for an all-body treatment.

There also is the new Silktage Clear Glow from Emtage Beauty. This all-natural multipurpose cleansing oil combines the powers of argan, camellia and red palm oil with the detoxifying properties of castor seed, broccoli seed and other botanical oils to dissolve makeup, dirt and impurities without leaving skin feeling tight or dry.

There also is Bio-Oil, a skin care oil that hails from South Africa and is infused with the breakthrough ingredient purcellin oil. It is formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.
