The Power Of Carrier Oils


Are you ready for a new and easy way to moisturise on the go?! Welcome to the new exciting launch of WiDEYE solid body lotions! For us, taking care of our skin is so important and that’s why we've chosen sustainable carrier oils to benefit you from head to toe! Carrier oils are characterized by the power they have to penetrate and sink deep within the skin, carrying with them essential oils and beneficial ingredients. The oils themselves are also incredibly nourishing and can aid in several skin complaints. So let’s dive in and explore to see what incredible oils we’ve got in store for you inside each of our solid body lotions.


 Raspberry seed oil


Let’s start this off with one of my favourites! Raspberry seed oil is great for all seasons because it can help repair skin damaged by harsh environments, such as exposure to high winds or then sun. This oil contains high levels of vitamin A and vitamin E, which are loaded with antioxidants, which help rid the body of free radicals. You can find this oil in our Nose Candy Solid Body Lotion.

Baobab seed oil

 This oil is extracted from the seed of the baobab tree and grows in places like mainland Africa where it is used for its beneficial properties. Not only does this oil moisturise but it also creates a barrier locking in the moisture, preventing water loss from the skin. Baobab is also high in antioxidants and can help retain collagen in the skin, preventing fine lines and wrinkles. If you’re on the sensitive side, you can find this oil in our Aqua Karma Solid Body Lotion to help to reduce skin inflammation caused by skin ailments such as eczema, psoriasis and to help ease any dryness or discomfort you may be feeling.

Watermelon seed oil

 We all love watermelon, but did you know how incredible those little seeds were? This oil is found in our Beach Bum Solid Body Lotion and is chalked full of Omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids, this oil helps to restore the skin's elasticity and is great for all skin types. Watermelon seed oil sinks deep down and removes impurities like dirt, excess oils and dead skin build up leaving your skin soft and nourished.

Lemon seed oil

 When life gives you lemons, make lemon seed carrier oil! Found in our brand new Sundown Solid Body Lotion, the main benefit of this oil comes with its high levels of Oleic and Linoleic acid which helps combat acne-prone skin, leaving it soft and rejuvenated. This oil is also very similar to Baobab oil, as it creates a barrier that locks in moisture making it incredible for dry, irritated skin.

Macadamia nut oil

Macadamia nut oil is a great carrier as it’s very close to the natural sebum (oils) our body produces, giving it the proper moisturising it may need without being greasy. This oil is also an emollient filled with monounsaturated fatty acids, softening and soothing the skin without it feeling heavy. This beautiful carrier oil is in our After Dark Solid Body Lotion, so if your skin is needing a boost this may be just what the doctor ordered.

Kiwi seed oil

Kiwis are an incredible fruit with so many benefits for your body inside and out. When extracted from the seeds of the kiwi, this oil has a lighter texture and sinks in immediately. Super high in Omega 3 fatty acids to help with more mature skin and can protect you from sun damage before and after it is applied, making the Summerbliss Solid Body Lotion perfect for this hot season!

Rosehip oil

 Rosehip oil is something you have probably heard of many times as it’s benefits are incredibly popular! Taken from cold pressing rosehips, this oil is full of vitamin A, assisting in cell regeneration which slows down the effects of ageing and helps reduce hyperpigmentation. Rosehip oil is found in our Poshi Solid Body Lotion and is great at hydrating dry itchy skin, absorbing easily allowing antioxidants to travel deep into the skin's layers.

Avocado oil

One of the most versatile carrier oils, avocado is more than meets the eye. Containing potassium, vitamin E, Lecithin and other beneficial nutrients that help by nourishing and moisturising the skin. Now found in our new Twin Peaks Solid  Body Lotion, this easily glides onto the skin leaving a non-greasy finish that hydrates. Got a sunburn? Don’t fret avocado oil accelerates the healing process and soothes chapped skin.
