Oils keep the outermost layer of the skin healthy and best at preventing irritants and allergens from getting into your skin and locking in moisture. Lotions, on the other hand, are often better at penetrating skin because they are partly water-based, and can deliver ingredients that improve the ability of skin to maintain moisture.
Hydration can come from damp skin after shower or bath, and can be sealed in to lock in the moisture by massage the body oil into your skin until completely absorbed.
Arithmos body oils are formulated with 100% plant-based and derived oils including 99% certified organic ingredients. Plant-based oils are full of rich in natural nutrients such as essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. They are super skin food. They help strengthen the skin’s protective barrier, improve elasticity and slow down ageing.
As we get older, the lipids (ceramides) which hold the barrier together naturally decrease, using plant-based oils will help to replenish these to seal in the moisture and prevent the hyaluronic acid we naturally produce from evaporating. Also, defends you skin against environmental aggressors such as pollution, sunlight, infrared radiation, hot and cold temperatures.
Arithmos body oils are suitable for most skin types. We recommend to simply apply a small amount of the product inside of your elbow or on the upper forearm. Keep the area dry and leave it for 24 hours. If any redness, itching or irritation is observed in 24 hours of patch test, do not use the product.
We do not recommend using Arithmos body oils products on face because of its essential oil dilution. Essential oils dilution rate for face products are generally around 0.5% because of its potent concentration, for body products are up to 1%. Hydration can come from damp skin or your moisturizer, and can be sealed in and therefore enhanced by a body oil.
We do not add any artificial fragrances into our products. The scentsyou smell come naturally from the plant-based oils, and are testament to thefreshness and quality of the ingredients we use.
Every Arithmos product has a product label on the bottom of the bottle which states when the product is made. The typical shelf life of our products is 18 months after the production date. We recommend using your Arithmos body oil within nine months after opening the bottle to enjoy our products at their peak potency.
All of our products are made with plant-based and essential oils in concentrations that are reasonably safe for pregnancy and lactation. However, as every pregnancy can be different, we highly recommend speaking with your doctor for more specific advice.
