Avoid Facial Oils with These Nasties

Face Oil Australia


When it comes to your facial care routine, using the right face oil is essential. Unfortunately, some "face oils" contain nasty additives that can actually cause irritation and other problems for your skin. These additives are typically found in low-quality facial oils, but it's important to make sure that you read the labels of any products you're buying. With so many options available, it can be tough to know which ingredients are actually beneficial for your skin and which ones are just filler.

First, let's talk about why facial oils are so great for the skin. They are incredibly nourishing and hydrating, making them a great option for those with dry or dehydrated skin. They also offer a variety of benefits such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightening the skin, and helping to balance oily skin.

However, not all facial oils are created equal. In fact, there are certain ingredients that you should always avoid when considering trying a new face oil. These ingredients can actually harm your skin rather than help it.

Here are the top 10 ingredients to avoid when considering a facial oil:

Mineral Oil

This ingredient is a byproduct of petroleum and is often used in skincare products as a moisturiser. However, it can actually clog pores and lead to breakouts. When applied to the skin, mineral oil forms a barrier that can trap bacteria, dirt, and other impurities, leading to acne and other skin issues.


These are a type of preservative that are commonly used in skincare products to extend their shelf life. Parabens mimic estrogen in the body, which can lead to an imbalance of hormones and some studies show it can potentially increase the risk of certain cancers.


Sulfates are often used in skincare products as a foaming agent, but they can be harsh on the skin. Sulfates strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. They can also cause a burning sensation and redness for some people who have more sensitive skin.


Natural and artificial fragrances are often used in skincare products to add a pleasant scent, but it can cause irritation and allergic reactions. Fragrance can be made up of many different chemicals, some of which can be harmful to the skin. It is also one of the most common allergens in skincare products.


Silicones are used in skincare products to give the skin a smooth, silky feel. However, they can clog pores and create a barrier on the skin, preventing it from breathing. This can lead to acne and other skin issues.


Phthalates are used in many skin-care products to make them more pliable. Phthalates can also mimic estrogen in the body, which can lead to an imbalance of hormones and also potentially increase the risk of certain cancers.


Formaldehyde is used as a preservative in many skincare products, but it can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. It is also a known carcinogen and has been linked to various types of cancer.

Propylene Glycol

This ingredient is used in skincare products as a humectant, but it can cause irritation and dryness. When applied to the skin, it can draw moisture away from the skin, leaving it dry and irritated.


Ethanolamines are used in skincare products to adjust the pH level, but they can also cause skin irritation even for people who don't typically have sensitive skin. Ethanolamines can also make skin more susceptible to allergic reactions.


It is well-documented that Phenoxyethanol is a common allergen. This ingredient is a type of preservative that is used to extend the shelf life of skincare products. Phenoxyethanol should definitely be avoided if you have sensitive skin.

Why you should choose 100% natural and organic facial oil products.
