An interesting story of two sisters. After witnessing her older sister looking younger, despite being eight years older – from her skin to her hair – the question became what is she doing differently? The answer was ‘oils’. Needless to say, the younger sister was not OK with her older sister appearing more youthful, so she wanted in.
Turned out – it was simple. All natural, all organic oils were the difference. So, they decided to partner together to launch a company now known as Revital Youth to bring consumers her beauty secrets, directly from the manufacturer. This not only ensured its purity and quality, but also keeps them affordable.
Each oil is guaranteed to be 100% organic, and 100% natural. Feel confident that this is not the norm – in fact, there are a plethora of products available that claim natural and organic, until you read the label. It is only then you realize that their definition of natural and organic can mean as little as 5% of the ingredients are.
This is where you might be expecting a long list of ingredients – most of which you wouldn’t be able to read anyways, but guess what? Each oil contains one (1) ingredient. These oils are cold pressed which means there is nothing added, and nothing is taken away.
You can expect each oil to contain no GMO, no parabens, no fillers, no additives, no fragrances, basically, nothing else but the oil itself. This is a clear demonstration of how they sand behind being pure, organic, natural and unrefined seed oils.
Each of these oils are considered to be carrier oils, meaning they are derived from the fatty portion of a plant, typically the seed which you can expect from these oils by Revital Youth. They have a shelf life of approximately one (1) year but is best to check the label for specifics. These oils are for external use only – and a special note is that unless an oil reads ‘Food Grade’, they should never be ingested.
Revital Youth is based in California, United States, and their oils are sourced from all over the world. Finding the right quality, and purity is key – and often this requires different climates and environmental considerations when extracting them. Having said that, all oils however are packaged in the United States.
The oils are described as 100% organic, however to date they have not received the certification of USDA Organic. The founders and owners do speak to this on their website and say – the process in costly and lengthy. Although the oils they package are 100% organic, they have not certified every piece of their supply chain. For that reason, they have not submitted for the USDA Organic stamp certification.
These oils are meant specifically for being carrier oils and are not designed for a diffuser.
In addition to the brief description mentioned above, carrier oils are used to dilute evaporative essential oils which allows them to be applied topically and through massage. They are found most commonly in aromatherapy scenarios because they avoid the risk of irritation, redness or burning which can occur with regular essential oils.
Carrier oils, unlike the traditional essential oils are practically odorless and they will not evaporate. Essential oils generally have quite a strong smell, but will evaporate into the air, especially when used through a diffuser.
Carrier oils, like these ones by Revital Youth, contain fat soluble vitamins and minerals, as well as other nutrients like beta carotene and Vitamin E. We know, that these components are known for their antioxidant properties. Carrier oils are both safe and natural for the body, and provide dozens of health benefits including anti-aging.
Choosing the right carrier oil has been made easy by the team at Revital Youth. Each of the shop sections are broken into various conditions that most people are treating for. For example, if you are looking to enhance your skin – choosing oils like apricot kernel oil, avocado seed oil, olive oil, sesame oil, sunflower seed oil and grapeseed oil are your ‘go to’s’.
Since you are likely applying these carrier oils to your skin – it is also important to consider which oils will not clog your pores (especially if this is an area of concern). Oils like hemp seed oil, argan oil, neem oil and jojoba oil are non-comedogenic, this means they won’t block the powers of the skin in the face which is ultimately the cause of blackheads.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions out there – regardless of age, race and gender – so finding a carrier oil for this condition was a priority. Castor oil, safflower oil, sesame oil and pumpkin seed oil are ideal for treating acne, in all forms.
Previously mentioned, the shop section of the site is perfect for deciding which oils to choose from. They include categories like;
… and many, many more.
Each bottle is one ounce in size and comes with a built-in dropper to allow for easy dispensing and application.
