Oléogel: the little extra to give our skin a boost!
In a previous article, we told you about our crush on flaxseed gel, a local alternative to aloe vera gel. This combines moisturizing, firming and remodeling properties while restoring suppleness and firmness to the skin. It is also good for your hair, with its styling and moisturizing properties.
The basis of your oleogel care: flax seeds!
But it can also be mixed with other ingredients, to create new products that are good for you and for the planet. Restore hydration to your skin, always with 100% natural products and homemade recipes: this is the role of oleogels!
What is an oleogel?
Oleogel is easy to manufacture! It combines both linseed gel or aloe vera gel and a vegetable oil. Together they form a moisturizing and nourishing jelly.
Just shake… it's ready!
Proportions? Count 90% gel and 10% oil. Shake well to combine the two products. You can prepare it instantly in the palm of your hand. No need in this case to add preservative. The oléogel is fully adaptable and customizable according to its problems and its type of skin. Thus, it is quite possible to combine several vegetable oils in order to boost your product and bring new virtues to it: softening with sweet almond oil, sebum-regulating with jojoba oil, anti-aging with sesame oil for example.
The addition of essential oils transforms your oleogel into a targeted action serum. Combined with the essential oil of tea tree, the oleogel acts for example on acne. Say goodbye to unsightly pimples, redness and excess sebum! Count 5 drops of essential oil for 30 mL of oleogel (be careful not to overdose!), and say hello to tight pores, clarified and healthy skin!
The little extra of oleogel: it is ideal as a make-up base!
So we say yes to illuminated and vitaminized skin and we run to see our oleogel recipe!
