Why Oil Based Skincare

Oil based skincare is becoming more recognized today. Our skin naturally produces oil, but as we age, the production of this oil decreases significantly. Therefore, it needs to be replenished and the most effective way of doing this is by using beautiful, natural plant based oils.


Merkaba skincare uses oils such as jojoba and camellia, both with structures that are almost identical to sebum, the oil naturally produced by human skin. These oils absorb quickly and thoroughly, don’t clog pores and assist with acne due to the regulation of oil production.

The skin’s own natural oils combined with plant oils complement each other so perfectly, restoring our inner and outer beauty, providing ultimate nourishment, enrichment and protection.

Going back to ancient times...

Ancient civilizations had an innate wisdom and were using pure extracted plant based oils for the purpose of healing and nourishing the skin for hundreds of years. These oils were valued as precious commodities.

Cleopatra, the ancient symbol of womanly beauty used sweet scented oils to protect against the harsh environment of Egypt. In India, Ayurvedic traditions saw the use of sesame and coconut oils and the Romans were using castor oil to improve complexions. 

Oils have always been integral to the life forms of plants, animals and humans and are vitally important to the healthy functioning of the physical body. Here at Merkaba Skincare, we embrace this knowledge as we consciously create our range of oil based products.
