More About Topical Oils

NOW® Solutions topical oils and topical essential oils are specifically formulated for personal care needs that butters and moisturizers aren’t suitable for, such as ear care, seasonal comfort, and specialized facial care

Ear care

The inner ear is one of the body’s most sensitive areas, and requires specialized care. Our Ear Oil Relief is a soothing blend of herbs, plant extracts, and vitamin E that cleanses and comforts the delicate tissues of the ear canal.

Seasonal comfort

Most chest rubs do the same thing – they help you breathe deeply during seasonal changes or when the environment isn’t cooperating. Most of them do not do it naturally, however; they’re loaded with synthetic ingredients that are unnecessary and/or ineffective. Our Chest Rub Relief has soothing natural oils such as coconut, sunflower, and olive oils along with a menthol aroma for breathing comfort and well-being, naturally.

Ultra-moisturization and specialized skin care

When butters and lotions aren’t enough, savvy personal care consumers reach for their own natural secret weapons. Certain botanical oils, when used properly, are ideal for topical use. NOW Solutions offers several oils specifically for different topical applications. These oils can help soothe dry skin, aid in skin renewal and elasticity, and some even help support hormonal balance.

Argan Oil

Considered the “gold of Morocco”, this unique and hard-to-come-by oil is a multi-functional personal care product that’s beneficial for all skin types and suitable for hair and nails due to its rich fatty acid content. Even better, it’s easily absorbed and helps maintain a healthy skin pH balance as well.

Rose Hip Seed

Rich in omega-6 fatty acids and a large array of skin-loving vitamins, rose hip seed oil is the blessing your skin has been waiting for. From the rose bushes of Chile, this oil can be used to aid in skin renewal to replenish a healthy glow, provide antioxidant protection, and naturally reduce the appearance of wrinkles and premature aging.

Tamanu Oil

Known for its thicker consistency, luxurious feel and pungent, woodsy smell, tamanu oil is used for a multitude of skin conditions and is ideal for use in lotions, creams, ointments, and other cosmetic products. Its naturally occurring, high concentration of saturated fatty acids make it very nourishing, even for the most disadvantaged skin.

Evening Primrose

This luxurious oil, which also helps support hormonal balance, is great for nourishing and soothing the driest skin while acting as a barrier to keep moisture in. It supplies essential fatty acids, especially gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) in sufficient quantities to keep skin healthy.

Neem

Used for over 4,000 years, neem oil contains vitamin E and essential fatty acids that moisturize and help rejuvenate skin. Neem oil is so effective that many conditions require only a few drops added to a shampoo, soap or oil to avoid irritation. Very potent, neem oil is semi-solid at room temperature and is regarded as a valuable “healer” in Indian Ayurveda.

Rosewater Concentrate

Believed to be the first modern perfume, rosewater makes a refreshing facial mist that hydrates and soothes delicate and mature skin. This concentrate can also be used in lotions, creams and oils for a pleasant scent.

Vitamin E

In addition to its antioxidant benefits, vitamin E is well known for its skin-nourishing properties, and it has traditionally been used to help improve the appearance of scarred tissue. Our vitamin E oil is 100% natural and has 23,000 IU of vitamin E.

Carrot Seed Essential Oil

A wonderful, skin-rejuvenating essential oil, carrot seed oil, when diluted with a carrier or moisturizer, helps balance both oily and dry complexions, helps to nourish damaged skin, and is extremely beneficial for mature or environmentally stressed skin.
