Why use skin oils?

Updated: Mar 21

Nothing is permanent. Everything is changing. This is also the case with the skin.

Your skin ages with you. Production of, among other things, skin cells, collagen and fat is reduced. The skin loses volume and becomes thinner, loses elasticity and becomes less elastic. It becomes drier and less able to retain moisture. Lines and wrinkles come naturally.


The skin needs a supply of essential fatty acids to be in a healthy balance.

Regardless of skin type, the skin needs a supply of essential fatty acids (eg omega-3 and 6) because they are not produced by the body. For best skin health, applying directly to the skin is better than eating fat because fatty acids tend to oxidize in the liver before reaching the skin.

By applying oils, the skin receives nourishment and fatty acids, and the skin's aging process can be reversed. A protective layer is formed which helps the skin retain moisture.


Oils should be used by everyone, and are suitable for all skin types, including oily skin, acne-prone skin and irritated skin. Choosing the type of oil is essential. Oils have a varying content of, among other things, antioxidants, types of fatty acids as well as natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Some oils tend to clog pores (eg cocoa butter and coconut oil), while other oils with a small molecular size can penetrate into deep skin layers and supply nutrients and fatty acids without clogging the pores (eg mullet seed and rosehip seed oil).

Day and night. The whole body

During the night, the body loses a lot of water. A good, nutritious oil that helps the skin retain moisture is important for keeping the skin resilient and reducing signs of ageing.

During the day, it is important to supply nutrition and moisture as well as antioxidants that help protect against free radicals from e.g. pollution and UV light.

Remember the whole body. The neck, chest, legs, arms and lips also need care and fats/oils, signs of aging also appear here.

Difference between oil and lotion/cream

Lotion and cream consist of both fat/oils and water, actually up to 70-80% water. Since oil and water cannot be mixed, an auxiliary substance, a so-called emulsifier (an agent that creates a stable mixture of substances that normally cannot be mixed with each other) must be added.

In addition, all products containing water must have preservatives added to prevent the growth of microbes. Pure oil-based products do not need preservatives because microbes cannot grow without the presence of water.


BeeKi's skin oils only contain ingredients that are good for the skin

Our pure skin oils only consist of ingredients that are good for the skin, and contain neither emulsifiers nor preservatives.


The oils work well as "cold cream" because they provide a protective layer and are free of water.


Our Sacred Glow can be experienced as a rich cream, but consists only of oils. It is quickly absorbed and leaves the skin velvety soft. The skin stays moisturised, soft and supple throughout the day and night.


Spring 11.11 Vitality Face & Body is a little "lighter" than Sacred Glow. It can be used all over the body, including the face. The oil is quickly absorbed, sinks into deep skin layers and keeps the skin soft and moist all day long.
