What the Heck is Oil Cleansing, Anyways?by Jonathan BumaI have always been taught, from a very young age, that acne was caused by oil overproduction and the surest way to clear my skin was to avoid oils AT ALL COSTS...Oil and water don't mix. If you're trying to get something, let's say.... a blocked pore, cleaned up, and it's full of oil, why would water get it out? Water and oil are polar opposites - they repel each other, so the water can't really get in there to do its work.
Evidence Based Ingredientsby Samantha Buma
We're picky. Like Type A, won't be satisfied until everything is done perfectly. So when it came to our oils, true to form we researched and tested and researched and tested and researched and tested until we knew we had a winning potion.
In case you're like us, and love the research, we thought we'd share what we discovered on our journey towards creating Skinny Dipper Skincare and the amazing products. Check below for each ingredient, why it's an excellent choice, and a summary of the science (with references, for you lovely nerds).
