Ingredient of the Month - Vetiver Oil

Ingredient of the Month - Vetiver Oil

What is it?

Vetiver is a perennial grass native to India. The grass has a pleasant, mild, earthy, and musky smell which has a cooling effect on the body and the mind. A fast-growing perennial, Vetiver can survive up to 50 years or more, as the leaves are supported by a vast network of underground roots which grow vertically into the soil. These roots are what is used to obtain Vetiver Oil.

How can Vetiver Oil help my skin?

Vetiver Oil is known to help regenerate skin tissues. Speeding up the disappearance of scars, discolouration, and other marks on the skin, Vetiver Oil helps to create an even skin tone. It is used in many acne treatments as it naturally kills bacteria and helps calm inflammation associated with acne and problematic skin conditions.

It is also an excellent moisturiser, nourishing and hydrating the skin, helping to soothe dry and cracked areas. It will also encourage the skin to retain its moisture, gradually increasing skin’s water content over time. Vetiver Oil contains anti-bacterial properties, destroying Bacteria, fungus, and other harmful microbes which would attack the skin.

Connective tissues start to sag and lose their elasticity over time. Vetiver Oil helps to support and strengthen the connective tissues in the skin, helping it to become firmer and visibly look more youthful. Antioxidants are also found in Vetiver Oil, which helps to protect skin from damaging free radicals and it has a calming scent, excellent when using your skincare products.
