The best anti-ageing oils for the skin
There is an abundance of fantastic anti-ageing oils to choose from, and they can be used on their own or in combination. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best anti-ageing oils that help to tighten skin and pores, smooth out wrinkles and promote cell regeneration.
Organic Rosehip Oil
Rich in vitamin A, C and E, Rosehip seed oil both delays the effects of ageing by strengthening its natural defences while also promoting a healthy dermis.
This oil is particularly suited to scarred skin, stretch marks and other damage because it promotes cell regeneration and encourages collagen production.
Organic Argan Oil
This is one of the most diverse pure moisturising oils available, and can be applied directly to the skin or taken internally to balance the digestive system. High vitamin A and E levels strengthen defences by warding off free radicals.
Many who use it claim their skin is noticeably more dense, smoother and feels more alive. This could be the antioxidants, or it could be the boosted circulation and cell renewal, but it’s probably a combination of both.
Carrot Seed Oil
One of the underappreciated essential oils, carrot seed oil has a natural detoxifying effect, healing to cleanse the liver, but also the digestive system as a whole.
Used as a massage oil, it can help to relieve stress and treat the build up of toxins in muscles and joints. When combined in creams and lotions, it softens and smoothes the skins as well as promoting cell rejuvenation and growth.
Jojoba Golden Oil
This versatile oil can be used as a moisturiser for both skin and hair and is particularly good if you have sensitive or dry skin. Rich in natural anti-oxidants, this oil will help to improve elasticity and enhance the skin’s natural regeneration processes.
This oil is extracted from Jojoba seeds as a liquid wax, and was revered among Native Americans and is now grown extensively on plantations throughout Southern and Central America, and other desert climates.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
