Carrier Oils for Skin and Hair

Oils are used by most people in some way or another almost every day. Oils come in many different forms, from the oils used in cooking to the oils used in oil paintings, or the oil in a car. Besides the examples in the previous sentence, petrochemical or synthetic oils will not be touched on. In this blog we will focus on vegetable oils commonly used in the personal care industry and specifically carrier oils for skin and hair applications. In these applications carrier oils function on their own, as base or as ingredient in the formulation. We will also briefly discuss carrier oils as carrier for essential oils. This is where the term carrier oil originated. After the review of vegetable oils, essential oils, carrier oils and hydrogenated oils, we will also investigate some common and some innovative methods used to produce the various oils.
