Deeply Hydrating Formulas
Body oils are a type of body moisturizer
, a product that is used to add hydration to the skin below the neck. Compared to other body moisturizers like lotions, creams and butters, body oils contain the largest amount of oil. This gives body oils a sleek, slippery consistency and makes them thicker than other types of body moisturizers. The high oil content gives body oils the ability to deeply hydrate the skin, so they are ideal solutions for addressing symptoms of very dry skin.
You can apply a body oil all over if you're suffering from widespread dryness or use it as a spot moisturizer for parts of your body that are extra dry. Body oils are also often used as massage oils to lubricate the skin before kneading and rubbing it. Some body oils double as bath oils, products that are poured into bathwater to condition skin during bathing.
Pure Oils vs Blends
There are two main types of body oils featured in this product selection: pure oils and blends.
Pure oils contain a single type of oil. Examples include mineral oil and oils derived from plants, such as jojoba and argan oils.

Body oil blends are products made from a number of oils and other ingredients. Each body oil blend has its own distinct benefits. You can learn about the features of the pure body oils and body oil blends in this product assortment by reading the product descriptions.
