Urban Veda Facial Oils: The Nerdie Lowdown On What They Do

Facial oils are a product that people tend to overlook. The dry-skinned love a cream or a moisturised, the oily-skinned wouldn't dream of putting an oil on their face and the normal-skinned never think about what additional benefits an oil could be bringing to their routine. 

Urban Veda work with predominantly botanical ingredients to create Ayurveda-inspired products that suit the different Doshas and thus different skin types. 

Let's look at all four of their facial oils, now stocked on The Skin Nerd: 

Urban Veda Purifying Facial Oil

Kapha Dosha, oily, combination and spot-prone skin

An oil for acneic, oily skin - are you sceptical? Don't be. It contains fabulous ingredients that will help to prevent and heal spots...

  • Gotu kola/centella asiatica - used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, shown to help with wound healing in studies 
  • Neem oil - neem is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant 
  • Organic bearberry extract - this contains arbutin, which inhibits the enzyme that causes pigmentation 
  • Organic mulberry extract - also inhibits the enzyme that causes pigmentation, antioxidant

These products are open for all meaning that there's no consult needed. We adore these for facial massage to give the skin a slip. Otherwise, it should follow your serums at night or come just before your night cream.
