Why Oil-Based Serums are Great for Skin?
Have you been shopping for an ideal serum for your skincare routine? What do oil-based serums have to offer?
Oil-based serums are often made out of botanical oils to deliver concentrated ingredients to tackle a variety of skin concerns, such as acne, pigmentation, scars, dry, dull skin etc.
The oils are loaded with natural antioxidants and essential fatty acids that help repair skin barriers, encourage cell renewal and regeneration whilst nourishing and moisturizing our skin.
Oil-based serums are not just for certain skin types. Even those with oily or blemished complexions avoid face and body oils out of fear that added oil will further block their pores or result in a greasy complexion. But this fear is really a myth that needs to be de-bunked.
In actual fact, oil-based serums actually help regulate your body’s natural oil production. They can help oily skin become balanced over time and reduce break-outs. By putting oil on your skin, you send the message to oily skin types that it’s okay to slow down natural oil production because your skin has enough oil now. Our clinically proven Garden of EDEN ROSA T Acne Serum (featured in pic above) is made of 100% plant-concentrates that helps reduce acne, oily skin and prevent acne scars in a proven yet gentle way!
Other types of botanical serum formulations can correct pigmentation (Check out Garden of EDEN ROSA E Pigmentation Serum) and correct uneven skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

And did you know that you only need 2 small drops of our serum to apply each time? A bottle of 5ml lasts for at least 4 weeks or even longer!
Most oil-based products contain 100% active ingredients – which means that you are paying mostly for skin-loving active ingredients that support your skin’s health.
While water based skincare products are more readily available and lighter to apply, the downside is that they are made mostly of water (80-90%) and are required to include emulsifiers and preservatives that can be harmful to your skin.
Oil based serums are made entirely of active, skin loving nutrients and do not include potentially harmful preservatives and emulsifiers but are heavier to apply and can cost more.
