Best oils that absorb fast into skin

Recommended Posts

Ahhh.... found a site that covers coconut oil vs MCT oil: MCT oil vs coconut oil

 

Still looking for the fractionated CO info.

 

Found fractionated CO vs MCT here: https://livelovefruit.com/mct-oil-vs-fractionated-coconut-oil/

This article also points out why different oils other than CO may be used and that CO and palm are probably the cheapest and most popular to use.

 

Yet another article on fractionated vs MCT: https://ketodummies.com/fractionated-coconut-oil-vs-mct-oil/

OMG! I can't BELIEVE I FORGOT the MOST IMPORTANT ONE OF ALL!!! 

CBD
It's A MIRACLE!!! It FIXES EVERYTHING! Jeeze... HOW could I have POSSIBLY overlooked THAT ONE!!!? 

Put it into your lotion, soap, buttwipes, and anything else you can physically get it into, near, or on and I PROMISE even if you make your cold cream with used motor oil you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO KEEP IT IN STOCK it'll sell so FAST. 



This would be really funny if it wasn't absolutely true.

If we take oil to mean the functional substance and not the molecular structure the 2 absolute fastest and best in my experience are Jojoba and Argan. The both have almost an identical molecular structure to human skin oil and as such they are properly esters.  Those 2 are the absolute best for skin "nourishment" and they are actually absorbed into the skin and hair, and they do so very rapidly also.

Also adding a little simethicone or dimethicone to a batch will be a huge help in providing a nice skin nourishment. If you need a little more glide to your lotion as Nightlight mentioned isopropyl myristate is THE nicest choice I can think of, BUT the simethicone or dimethicone will also give some glide to your formulation. Also one of the best non comedonal oils hasn't been mentioned yet is  Mineral Oil. There's a BIG reason why it's in ALL of the commercial products, and that's because it WORKS like magic. My beard lotion is like pretty much straight mineral oil these days with just a smidge of vitamin E (tocopherol). 

ETA: Also a very nice deodorant I have used extensively is just straight old Dollar Tree non sweetened Milk of Magnesia. SUPER anti microbial and makes REALLY good fairly long lasting deodorant as well.  Also, for a little extra moisturization some sodium lactate is a very nice addition.

I am not a scientist by trade. I DO study things IN DEPTH to get a proper handle on how to best use them and bend them to my purposes. CONTROL BABY!!!  

I was studying to become a Dr. at one time and a lot of the skills I learned have been VERY useful to me over the years. e.g: I hunt wild edible mushrooms in Florida (yeah... there's a BUNCH of them), but I get asked to ID mushrooms that other people find too. I have a NICE binocular microscope with an oil immersion lens for helping me to identify mushrooms that I collect.(Still, I rarely have to break out the scope) 

I think it just boils down to : I'm weird.   

idunno... (shrugs)

Yeah, there are THOSE mushrooms out in the wild too... Interesting factoid (which is a fact I pulled out of my o.O ) there are NO deadly poisonous boletes in Florida.  Yup! NONE. There are 2 or 3 that will make you so sick you'll WISH you had died, but none that will kill you outright. So down here we "seek the sponge". We also have native oyster mushrooms (3 kinds actually one of which is specific to Florida), native chanterelles, and shiitake &  lion's mane have established themselves down here too. Lotsa good eat'n down here in the swam-(POP).
