Coconut Oil

One of the most versatile ingredients that you can use in DIY skincare is coconut oil. Coconut oil has extreme moisturising properties, making it ideal for dry skin. It can also help to soothe irritated skin and reduce inflammation.

Coconut oil can be used as a gentle makeup remover or as a deep conditioning treatment for hair. So coconut oil is perfect for that added moisture in your skincare (or haircare) product making projects such as - creams, lotions, soaps and moisturisers.

Jojoba Oil

DIY skincare enthusiasts will be happy to know that jojoba oil is another natural ingredient that can be used in a variety of ways. This versatile oil is known for its ability to nourish and soothe the skin. It can be used as a stand-alone moisturizer or added to DIY skincare recipes. When used in DIY skincare recipes, jojoba oil can be combined with other ingredients such as essential oils and carrier oils to create custom concoctions. So, if you're looking for a natural skincare ingredient that is both versatile and effective, jojoba oil is a good option to consider.

Commonly known to use in creams, lotions, balms and lipsticks.

Shea Butter

One of the most popular ingredients for DIY skincare is shea butter. Packed with essential beauty vitamins, shea butter is known for enhancing the look and feel of the skin while creating a barrier that helps to lock in moisture. It's no wonder that this multi-purpose ingredient can be found in so many different cosmetics, skincare, and hair care products. So if you're looking for a way to nourish your skin and hair, consider giving DIY skincare with shea butter a try!
