    Make your own DIY face serum with jojoba oil and shea oil - Biome Naked Beauty Bar

    This DIY face serum acts as light, oil-based moisturiser that is absorbed quickly into the skin, carrying beneficial essential oils into your pores. Customise this face serum with a combination of essential oils depending on your skin type and needs, and nourish your skin with healthy, natural ingredients. For our’s we used essential oils suited to dry and mature skin.

    Both of the key oils used act as the base of the serum as they have many benefits for different skin types.

    Shea Oil has a thick, oily texture that is less heavy and greasy than its solid form. It’s moisturising and conditioning, especially to dry and flaking skin. It can also be used for a variety of skin conditions like rosacea, psoriasis and eczema, and has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. It’s also antifungal, antibacterial, and won’t clog pores, helping problem skin heal and recover.

    jojoba-oil-in-glass-bottle-80g

    Jojoba Oil promotes healthy skin, won’t clog pores, and is rich in iodine. When applied topically, iodine fights bacterial growth that leads to breakouts. The antioxidants present in Jojoba oil help to soothe fine lines, wrinkles and naturally slow the signs of aging.
