Plant oils are effective for skin care for all generations
Natural products do not contain chemicals, so they are suitable for people of all generations and children’s skin, as well as sensitive skin and skin prone to allergies and rashes.

- Raspberry seed oil – this vegetable oil has the highest natural protection factor of 28 to 50 SPF (depending on the raspberry cultivation). The oil can be used alone or as an addition to mixtures. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties. That is why it is suitable for skin prone to irritation, rashes, eczema and lesions. This oil has the highest concentration of gamma-tocopherol in free form (which prevents skin damage caused by UV rays). It has a lot of valuable fatty acids, the most important of which are omega-3 and omega-6. It contains high concentrations of vitamins E and A. It provides protection against the entire UV spectrum of solar radiation (UV-_A, B and C) with strength comparable to titanium dioxide. The oil is stable and not easily perishable (due to the content of phospholipids). It is stored at an adequate temperature.
- Hazelnut oil– This vegetable oil is a popular addition to natural beauty products. Protects against UVA and UVB radiation. The skin quickly absorbs hazelnut oil, which prevents rapid photoaging and the harmful effects of external factors. It is suitable for the care of mixed and dry skin. It is used alone or in mixtures. The estimated natural SPF factor is between 10 and 30. This oil is great for all skin types (oily, dry, young, older skin, combination skin) due to its richness in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins. It has a stimulating effect on the skin that slows down the loss of water from the skin and forms a protective layer on the surface of the skin. It is most often used for dry and aged skin, making it softer, restoring elasticity and preventing peeling. Its nourishing and moisturizing properties make it the best choice in winter (especially for dry skin, because then it cracks and peels more).

It contains hundreds of carotenides (powerful antioxidants among which beta-carotene is the best known, which is converted into vitamin A in the body). Beta carotene protects the skin from oxidative effects and the harmful effects of UV radiation. Carrot oil stimulates skin condition and renewal. Carrot oil is an almost mandatory ingredient in feminine hygiene preparations (because of the natural source of carotene and vitamins).

It contains large amounts of minerals (phosphorus, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium) and a high level of vitamin E (up to 7 times more than other oils). Vitamin E is one of the strongest antioxidants that protects the body from free radicals. Wheat germ oil is a natural balm that protects and nourishes the skin, stimulates the exchange of substances at the cellular level, protects cells from damage, deeply nourishes and nourishes and regenerates the skin. It slows down the appearance of wrinkles and the aging process of the skin. It is especially useful for the care of dry, thin, damaged, cracked and sensitive skin.
