Question: What oils do you use in products and why?

For the answer to this question, I will focus on oils other than scent oils, since I covered that in a previous post.

-Jojoba oil: I use jojoba oil in the Simply Selkie skin bar, most of the soaps that have natural colourants (such as the Celtic Islands bar and the Limited Edition Sultry Siren soap), the Salty Selkie mineral scrub and the Sensual Selkie massage oil. National research has shown that jojoba oil can slow the outbreak of acne, it has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. All of these properties make it a perfect addition to any soap. Besides these, jojoba oil is also a great moisturiser. It absorbs well into the skin, making it a good match for my massage oil recipe.

Sweet almond oil: I use sweet almond oil in the Sensual Selkie massage oil. Sweet almond oil contains a number of omega acids and it softens skin. A wonderful emollient, it blends well with jojoba oil to make a skin-softening, slick, absorbing oil that leaves skin soft rather than oily and sticky. Sweet almond oil acts as a humectant, preventing moisture loss. It is rich in Vitamin E and is said to relieve dry, flaking and itchy skin due to eczema, psoriasis and rashes.

Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil is used in my Simply Selkie skin bar. The Simply Selkie bar was created by me to be an all-around every day use bar that gave the benefits of an expensive skin bar. It contains nourishing, moisturising skin-beneficial ingredients such as cocoa butter, oatmeal (a mild exfoliant to clear grime and dead skin), jojoba oil and of course, tea tree oil. Tea tree oil, though not thoroughly researched for such, is also used to affect acne. It also has been used for sunburns, rashes, and other annoying skin conditions. It has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

My goal with Selkie Sensuals is to provide products for everyday use, for all skin types that do more than just get you clean and help you feel confident and sensual. Though I have “hit the jackpot” so to speak with my current offerings, I continue to research for even more ideas to add to my array of skin products. As always, lovingly handcrafted in small batches!

So, until next time…stay Sensual!

New Products now available!

Our newest products have been added to the website! (http://www.selkiesensuals.com)

The Celtic Islands Soap bar was supposed to be just a Spring Limited Edition offering, but customers kept asking that it be offered year-round. How could I not!?!

Celtic Islands Soap barPacked with oatmeal, a mild exfoliant, natural oils and natural spirulina for colour, this lightly scented bar is sure to become a family favourite! Not to woodsy and not too flowery, this soap will take you to the Emerald Isle, or to the Highlands of Scotland where the wind blows over fields of lavender.

Selkie Soft Moisture Balm

Selkie Soft Moisture balms are VEGAN! Made with natural waxes and oils. They are a must have for dry cracked elbows heels and more! Scented with your choice of our signature scent blends, they double as a solid perfume! Don’t want a scent? We also offer an unscented version. These were part of our product line a few years ago, lately I’d had numerous customers ask for them, so we at Selkie Sensuals decided to bring them back full-time!

Summer Limited Edition items to be announced on May 1!

Until then…stay Sensual!

Question: If you don’t test on animals, who or what do you test your products on?

We at Selkie Sensuals love our animal friends and we know that how an animal might react to ingredients in cosmetic and toiletry products may not be indicative of how a human would react.

We strive to purchase supplies only from companies that do not test on animals, and we don’t test on animals either.

Who do we test on? Ourselves! Each and every product that leaves the Selkie Sensuals shelf has been used by us, the creators of the product. Simply Selkie bars and Celtic Island bars grace our shower caddy. Salty Selkie mineral scrubs feel really good on my skin after a dirty day in the garden. Sniffly Selkie sinus balms are a staple in our home, just ask our teen son P.I.T! The Sensual Selkie massage oil helps us relax after a hard day.

Selkie Sensuals stands by our motto: At Selkie Sensuals, we never test on animals, unless it is ourselves! Check us out at: http://www.selkiesensuals.com

Until next time, stay Sensual
