Les huiles végétales: Véritables trésors de bienfaits pour la peau et les cheveux

Carrier oils: A treasure trove of benefits for the skin and hair

In the vast and diversified realm of carrier oils, each variety represents a true treasure trove of benefits for the skin and hair.

Their unique composition, drawn from a multitude of plants such as olive, sweet almond, avocado, coconut, and many others, offers a wealth of essential nutrients, thus contributing to the balance and health of our epidermis.

Vegetable oils, also known as carrier oils, have traditionally served as vehicles for essential oils in aromatherapy. However, their value goes far beyond this supporting role. Indeed, these oils are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, thus offering a plethora of benefits for the skin and hair.

Let's delve deeper into the main components of vegetable oils and their beneficial properties:

For hair, vegetable oils can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment to nourish and protect dry and damaged hair.
