What is the appropriate use of organic vegetable oils?  

There is no appropriate use per se. Our vegetable oils are used alone according to their properties, but we also add essential oils to act on specific points. They can also be used as an ingredient in the making of your own cosmetics. An oil can, by itself, be a part of your beauty ritual: facial, body or hair, ... Some oils alone are enough to offer you everything your body needs. They are a very good one-time contribution in terms of nutrients and vitamins, in addition to your usual cosmetic products. In any case, each oil is chosen according to its benefits, and the benefits it can bring you.

 

What does the term emollient mean and what is its interest in cosmetics?

A product or ingredient with emollient properties helps to soften and soothe the skin. Emollient cosmetics are particularly recommended for dry to very dry skin and sensitive skin. An emollient cream makes the skin feel softer after application. Oily substances are excellent emollients in view of their chemical composition, which is why Comptoir des Huiles integrates as much vegetable oil as possible in the composition of its cosmetics.
