Jojoba - Jojoba Oil is a great oil to use in body oils, lip balms and lotion bars because it is an array of wax esters that leave the skin feeling smooth and silky. One of the only oils that is able to penetrate the pores of the nail plate, it is a must-have ingredient for effective cuticle oils and nail treatments.

Macadamia Nut Oil - Macadamia Nut Oil is a very versatile oil that is a great addition to many handmade cosmetics. It contains squalene and oleic acid that assists with cell regeneration, making this oil particularly useful for dry or chapped skin as it softens and moisturizes.

Peanut Oil - Peanut oil is an occlusive oil, meaning it locks moisture into the skin. The major allergen in peanuts does not transfer during the processing of peanuts into oil, thus, the use of these ingredients in cosmetic products does not represent an allergy concern for most people with peanut allergies. However, allergy concerns should be noted when using this oil.
