Today we are going to talk about our preference for Oil over Water!! The OIL I am referring to most certainly isn’t petroleum oil. Nope, of course not! I’m talking about NATURAL OILS. When you are choosing skin care products, it’s easy to be lulled in by the constant claims of luxurious, rich creams that make all sorts of claims regarding softening, moisturizing and soothing your skin. The truth is, creams are NOT the best solution for your skin. Oil is.
Botanical oils have been used for thousands of years for skin care. Long before manufacturing processes determined ways to emulsify and liquidate heavy metals with water and turn them into the billion dollar industry of beauty products, women used oils for their skin care needs. Timeless beauties like Cleopatra smoothed olive oil into their skin for moisture and anti-aging effects. Rich and influential women in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome were known for their lovely skin. Olive oil, sesame oil and castor oils were esteemed by rich and poor alike to cleanse and smooth the skin. Oils were often used as payment for services, including hard labor.
Botanical oils are nature’s source of essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all needed for healthy, glowing skin. One of the reasons oils are so effective is they are very similar in their composition to the sebum naturally produced by the human body. The skin is designed to protect the body from outside contaminants. Sebum keeps the skin rejuvenated and moisturized so it can adequately protect the internal portion of the body.
In addition to being easily absorbed due to the similarity to the body’s natural sebum, oils are more concentrated so a little bit goes a long way. Creams are typically water based. They also tend to have chemical ingredients added to them to preserve them and make them last longer. Oils do not require these chemicals as they contain fat-soluble botanical ingredients like botanical herbs and essential oils.

Inlight 100% organic skincare products do not contain water. Although it is a common misconception that using oils on oily skin leads to breakouts, the opposite is actually true. Excessive scrubbing and cleansing with water, which so many people with oily skin engage in, actually cause the body to produce even more sebum. This excess sebum leads to more breakouts and other oily skin problems. Using oils to cleanse and moisturize the skin help balance the sebum, which leads to less oily skin and fewer breakups.

Carefully chosen, high-grade organic oils, which are the only oils used in Inlight products, are easily absorbed by the skin and won’t clog pores. Many oils also contain triterpenoids and phytosterols, which are anti-inflammatories and will soothe and calm the skin. Oils also lock in moisture to help prevent dehydration and keep your skin soft and smooth.
All skin types, whether dry, normal or oily, need hydration. Effective hydration is vital to keep the skin healthy, supple and youthful, oils offer the best possible moisturiser for all skin types. Unlike creams, oil based products provide a protective barrier which helps to lock in water, keeping the skin hydrated for longer.
Choosing which unrefined organic oils to best help your skin is important. Dr. Spiezia, formulator of Inlight products, points to olive oil, coconut oil and jojoba oil as three powerhouse oils for skincare.
Inlight products use all of these powerful oils in the making of its skincare products. They are blended and infused for over a month with botanical herbs and essences. Then, they are pressed and filtered for pure beautiful oils, which are then combined with essential oils or beeswax. Dr. Spiezia has patented this oil blend, known as the Bio-lipophilic Matrix. It is the heart of Inlight’s magic and is part of every product. The energetic vibration of this powerful matrix helps the skin to retune and revitalize to be at its very best. Each product has its own alchemic symbol to further enhance this vibration and symmetry with nature.
To complete the pure and natural delivery of Inlight’s organic skincare, the products are contained in beautiful glass jars and bottles, never plastic, which is harmful to our Earth. The packaging is made from recycled materials and adds even more beauty to these special products.
