NEIGHBOURHOOD BOTANICALS 'The Body' Softening Ceramide Body Oil


A natural, ceramide-rich, silicone-free body oil made from an opulent blend of silky cold-pressed oils.

Formulated in Leyton, East London by sustainable skincare specialists Neighbourhood Botanicals.

Rice Bran Oil, Wheatgerm Oil and Oat Lipids combined are a ceramide power trio great for reinforcing skin barrier and soothing sun damaged or inflamed skin.

This natural body oil is perfect for sensitive skin, and helps to soften and provide your skin with long lasting protection from moisture loss.

A little goes a long way - this bottle will give you smooth skin for 6 months when used on your whole body every second day!

How does it work? We’ll let Neighbourhood Botanicals explain:
Rice Bran Oil, Wheatgerm Oil and Oat Lipids combined are great for soothing sun damaged or inflamed skin.

This tough trio are high in phytoceramides, naturally occuring long chain fatty acids prevelant in younger skin but which we lose as we age. Ceramides prevent moisture loss by reinforcing your skin’s barrier function, like grout between the tiles of your skin cells. They also contain Ferulic Acid, which studies show can prevent skin ageing and sun damage, treat dark spots and is super softening and effective against inflammation.

On their own these heavy oils would be too thick, so we've blended in sleek coconut and kukui oils to make our Body Oil a real glidey pleasure to use.

Carrot Oil has bright orange beta-carotene, which the body converts into Vitamin A (Retinol) to help grow cells and fortify the skin support structure.

The Body features a genderless bitter green citrus scent to make you smell like the heavens opened and dropped you into a Positano sunset, prosecco in hand, weak at the knees.

Benefits of these particular essential oils are said to stimulate circulation, calm the mind and bring the sexy feels. The Body is especially friendly to dry skin and is excellent for soothing irritation.

How to: As with any body oil, use on damp skin from the shower, or splash your limbs with water first. Oils trap moisture into your skin and soften it, but it cannot hydrate alone without water.

The easiest and fastest way is literally straight after stepping out of the shower. Slather it all over and then pat skin dry. This allows maximum hydration, application is faster and your oil goes further too."
