HYBRID OILS 101: All of your questions, ANSWERED!

ICYMI… there’s two new HYBRID oils that are shaking things up and F-A-S-T becoming our best sellers.  Here’s all of your questions about our new Rescue Recovery Hybrid Oils, ANSWERED!


Q: What is a HYBRID OIL?

A: Hybrid Oils are essentially an oil that is suitable for use on the face AND the body. In a fantasy world, we would all choose to have flawless skin, amirite?! But in reality, most of us are struggling with more than one skin issue. The good news is, our NEW Hybrid Oils are perfect for the skincare minimalists AND the routine queens.  They slide into your current skincare regime fuss free.


Q: How is it different to our body oils?

A: Our hybrid oils are a whole new formulation and contain different base oils to our body oils. Whilst they are ultra-nourishing, they also feel different to the touch. Our hybrid oils are a dry formula that glide on effortlessly (keeping in mind, dry oil refers not so much to the characteristic of the oil, but rather to the finish that the oil leaves on the skin).


Q: What are the ingredients and how do they work?

A: In short, our hybrid oils contain: Grapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, Pomegranate Kernel Oil, Carrot Seed Oil and fragrance. All of the ingredients have been specially chosen due to their anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, AND anti-fungal properties. Our hybrid oils are heaven-sent for inflamed skin.


For all of you skin care nerds (hello, it’s me! 🙋‍♀️), here is a breakdown of each ingredient below:

⦁ Grapeseed Oil:  Wine is the stuff of the gods and consider grapeseed oil the equivalent for your skin! Grapeseed oil is an all-natural cold pressed oil extracted from grape seeds after they have been used to make wine (cheers to that!). Grapeseed oil is non-comedogenic (meaning it does not clog pores) so even the most sensitive of skin types – including acne prone - can use this oil with abandon. Largely known for its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, grapeseed oil also contains high amounts of omega fatty acids and vitamin E.

⦁ Coconut Oil:  Rich in lauric acid, coconut oil also contains high levels of linoleic acid. These medium-chain fatty acids contain antimicrobial properties, helping to kill bacteria on the skin and reduce inflammation. Nutrient dense coconut oil helps to suppress inflammatory markers and enhance our skin barrier function resulting in intense moisture retention.

⦁ Pomegranate Kernel Oil:  Fondly referred to as ‘The Fruit of Life’, the pomegranate has been touted as a superfood since ancient times and provides incredible benefits for the overall health of your skin. Just to name a few, it is loaded with omega fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and antimicrobial properties. Pomegranate kernel oil promotes rapid cell regeneration including the quality of these cells and helps to manage inflammation. Given its endless list of skin benefits, it is no surprise that this is one of the main ingredients in our hybrid oils.

⦁ Carrot Seed Oil:  Consider carrot seed oil royalty of ‘ANTI’ oils; anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Rich in antioxidants, carrot seed oil brightens skin, increases cell turnover and reduces inflammation. The addition of carrot seed oil is like the cherry on top of an already amazing formulation of oils.


Q: What skin types/conditions is it suitable for?

A: ⦁ All skin types: Our hybrid body oils are loaded with nutrient rich ingredients for all skin types- including acne prone and sensitive skin.

⦁ Eczema and Dermatitis: Eczema and dermatitis reduce the skin’s ability to remain hydrated. Applying our nourishing hybrid oils helps to reduce discomfort and soothe symptoms that are associated with inflammatory skin conditions.

⦁ Psoriasis: If you are looking for a remedy for your psoriasis, our nourishing hybrid oils get a lot of buzz! Vitamin rich cold press base oils used in our formulations help to retain moisture, reduce redness and soothe itching often associated with psoriasis and can be used on the face and body (including scalp).

⦁ Scars: Our wholesome hybrid body oils are formulated with cold pressed oils that are anti-inflammatory and rich in omega fatty acids, offering salvation in fading scars and brightening skin.

⦁ Inflamed Skin/Skinflammation: The hero plant based ingredients in our hybrid oils have an affinity for reducing redness and delivering intense hydration to dry, irritated skin thanks to the high concentration of fatty acids.

⦁ Pregnant Bellies: Maximise the skin’s capacity to stretch and bounce back during pregnancy and beyond. Rich in intensively nourishing oils, omegas and vitamins, helping to ditch the itch. Skinned products are safe for pregnant and nursing women to use. They don’t contain nasty ingredients that could harm you or your little one. Our powerhouse oil formulas help to promote collagen production and leaves skin nourished and smooth as it stretches during pregnancy. 

Q: How do I use it?

A: For body application, apply directly to damp or dry skin and massage as you would a traditional cream moisturiser. They can be applied as often as you need as you may find that they soothe inflamed skin.

For face application, a few drops (less is always more!) can be applied to damp of dry skin. Gently massage or ‘pat and press’ and allow to absorb few a few minutes prior to applying additional products or makeup. For morning applications, be sure to follow with SPF (it really is your BFF- and here is your cheeky reminder to get your skin checked!)
