Choose your organic vegetable oils
Vegetable oils are precious liquid extracts, very rich in various essential fatty acids and vitamins, essential elements for the health and beauty of the skin. The ones we offer at Penn'Ty Bio are 100% natural. They have always been used for the care of the epidermis.
Method of obtaining organic vegetable oils
Organic vegetable oils are obtained by first cold pressing of fruit stones or seeds. This is a mechanical extraction method that takes place at low temperature. However, there are oils obtained by a different process: part of the plant (often the flower) is macerated in organic vegetable oil, enriched with natural vitamin E: these are maceration oils or oily macerates.
Quality criteria for organic vegetable oils
Penn'Ty Bio has selected Ladrôme vegetable oils for their high quality. All vegetable oils are certified Organic Cosmetics by Ecocert. 100% natural, they contain no coloring or preservatives. They are all enriched with natural vitamin E, which ensures their preservation.
The first cold pressing is a traditional method of mechanical extraction: the fruits and seeds are sorted, then submitted mechanically, cold, to the press. Vegetable oil is the first natural liquid extract obtained. Performed at low temperature, the first cold extraction prevents the oxidation of fatty acids and preserves the activity of vitamins. Thus, vegetable oils retain a full content of fatty acids and vitamins, without any additives. We then speak of virgin oily extracts which have not undergone any chemical treatment or refining.
How to use organic vegetable oils
Most vegetable oils are used pure on the skin. Simply rub a few drops onto freshly dried skin after cleansing. You don't need to put a lot. On the face: 4 to 5 drops are enough to avoid an overly greasy, unpleasant appearance.
Each vegetable oil and maceration oil has virtues adapted to a type of skin. In massage or applied locally to the affected areas of the body or face, they soothe, moisturize, regenerate, tone or nourish the epidermis. They can also be used as a hair mask.
Vegetable oils and maceration oil are also an excellent base for diluting essential oils. Each combination of a vegetable oil with one or more essential oils provides an effective and unique synergy that meets a specific skin need. As a general rule, for cosmetic use, you should not dilute more than 3% of essential oils in vegetable oil, scrupulously respecting the precautions for use specific to each essential oil.
Vegetable oils should be stored at room temperature, between 20°C and 25°C, away from light.

Composition of organic vegetable oils and organic oily macerates
Omega -3 and omega -6 are so-called "essential" polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are essential for the proper functioning of the body which cannot manufacture them itself. Essential fatty acids therefore have an important role in the constitution of the skin.
OMEGA -3 : Improve the elasticity of the skin, fight against its dryness and contribute to the disappearance of various imperfections
OMEGA -6 : Promote skin suppleness and tone, prevent skin aging and improve skin hydration.
OMEGA -7 (palmitoleic acid): This is a non-essential, monounsaturated fatty acid, to which the most important moisturizing properties are attributed.
OMEGA -9 : These are non-essential monounsaturated fatty acids. The most common substance is oleic acid. They contribute to the elasticity, hydration, nutrition and youthfulness of the skin.
