Oil Massage

Castor Oil 

Expressed from the seed of the castor bean plant, it is a natural emollient oil that penetrates the surface layers of the skin, making it softer and more pliable. It acts as a humectant to boost lathering, adding richness and mildness to soaps. It is especially valued for its conditioning qualities.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is the fat from crushed seeds of the cacao (ke kao) tree that is separated during the process of making cocoa. It looks and smells like white chocolate.

Evening Primrose Oil

Extracted from the plant seed, this oil has a high gamma linolenic acid content that promotes healthy skin and helps the skin repair itself. It soothes skin problems and inflammation, making it a good choice for people with psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis. Evening primrose oil discourages dry skin and premature aging. For this reason, people with oily complexions should not use it.

Hemp Oil

The seeds yield wonderful oil, rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and enzymes that are easily absorbed by the skin. An excellent emollient, hemp oil helps moisturize and heal dry skin cracking, and reduces scaling.

Jojoba Oil

This liquid wax is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant. Jojoba contains more than four times the waxy esters found within human sebum, the natural moisturizing oils our skin secretes, so it helps skin maintain normal function. Its minerals and proteins help heal inflamed skin conditions, such as psoriasis or dermatitis. It also helps control oily skin, acts as a moisturizer and humectant, and has antioxidant properties. It can be used as a total percentage of the base recipe, used to super fat, or both to make a superior product. Make note of its low saponification value and adjust the sodium hydroxide accordingly.

Palm Kernel Oil

This oil obtained from the oil palm fruit kernel contains large portions of lauric acid. This fatty acid is unusual because it combines two mismatched characteristics: saturation and low molecular weight.

Sunflower Oil

Pressed from the seeds, this wholesome oil is full of vitamins and minerals. It is best used in combination with coconut oil, as it tends to result in a soft soap and is slow to trace. It is easily absorbed and can be used on all skin types. It has a high vitamin E content and forms a "skin" after drying. It produces medium-sized bubbles.

Wheat Germ Oil

Extracted from the germ of the wheat kernel, this antioxidant oil is high in lecithin and vitamins A, D, and E. It nourishes dry or cracked skin, soothing skin problems and reducing scarring. Wheat germ oil is sometimes called a natural preservative because of its high natural vitamin E content.
