which oil is better
Posted 22 July 2004 - 08:32 AM
so does tea tree oil (except manuka is stronger)
emu oil is the best transdermal carrier and should not clog pores
jojoba oil falls in pretty close
has anyone tried camelia oil? it does not purport to have any of these anti- activities but it sounds like a good hydrator....
or rosewood oil?
so if i wanted to moisturize (add a couple drops in with Cetaphil) without breaking out which is the best choice?
btw, where is jc??

IMHO, the manuka oil and honey gel from Living Nature is the best; it moisterizes, tones, tightens, and helps acne all at the same time.
As far as oils go....emu oil is good for it's anti-inflammatory properties. Jojoba is good for blackheads (helps break them down).
But a good all-around skin gel for acne prone skin is manuka oil and honey gel. You can get it at http://www.allnaturalcosmetics.com/

what would you suggest i use instead of Cetaphil? i have read about Aquanil and it claims to have sodium lauryl sulfate which should not clog pores...
however, i do agree that using anything manufactured is bad for your skin. thanks!!

i'm wary of cleansers that change the pH of my skin because i've realized i get fewer infections if i use soapless cleansers. i am also wondering if there is something i could make in my own kitchen as a cleanser...will check into that later.
thanks for all your help!
