Oil + Your Skin

25 April, 2019 | posted by Carly Pateman

For years many brands have touted “oil-free” as one of the reasons to purchase their products.

However, with the surge of beauty oils hitting the shelves, that perception seems to be shifting. So, is oil good or bad?

According to dermatologist Dr. Carl Thornfeldt, clinical dermatologist and founder of Epionce, oils are an important component of healthy skin. “Healthy skin contains a mix of three types of oils: ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids.”

He notes that this combination – in a specific ratio to each other – is critical to healthy skin. Certain oils are very beneficial especially when they provide what the skin needs to be healthy.

Epionce Renewal Facial Cream – or any Renewal for your skin type – contain the perfect proportion of cholesterol, ceramide and free fatty acids to optimise skin health.
