Over the past few years, face oils have become exceedingly popular, as they provide a natural way to take care of our skin and bring back the natural glow people are dreaming of. But the truth of the matter is that not all oils are created equal — every face oil is manufactured with different ingredients and targeted to different skin concerns.
Bear in mind, just because something is natural, doesn’t mean it’s inherently safe or effective. When it comes to choosing the face oil that best suits your skin type and needs, you’ll want to be careful about the composition of the face oil, as it would determine if it only provides some placebo effect or it could truly help improve and return the skin to its healthy state.
An extraordinary face oil is not simply a blend of plant and essential oils. It should possess the 3 following qualities:
Face Oil Quality 1. Ingredients highly biocompatible through bionicity
The composition of the face oil should not just be originated from nature, but also meets the requirement for safety and biocompatibility.
To achieve that, it must balance the structural compounds found in plant oils, such as the fatty acids and vitamins with oil-based extracts, too.
Take Greenvines’ Resilience Facial Oil as an example, the formulation imitates lipids found in the skin by combining squalane with natural plant oils including moringa oil, rosehip oil, oat kernel oil, and grape-seed oil to form a premium base. This makes it easy to penetrate the inner layer of the skin to deeply nourish and repair, while remaining lightweight.
Face Oil Quality 2. Evidence-proven clinical effect
The face oil should be able to demonstrate its claimed clinical effect through efficacy testing such as in-vivo results, to ensure that the active ingredients in the product not only have antioxidant or anti-aging effects via lab testing but also works on actual human skin, and thus supports the label claim.
Plus, an extraordinary face oil should be completely oil-based without any water-based ingredients to keep the formulation as “clean” and stable as possible. Wouldn't that also make more sense for it being called "face oil"?

Face Oil Quality 3. The eco-friendly preserving system
Last but not least, an extraordinary face oil should avoid addition of any kind of artificial fragrance, synthetic oil / mineral oil. The preserving system on the other hand should also consider the affinity with the skin as well as the environment.
So you won’t see any petroleum-sourced antioxidants and preservatives in Greenvines’ face oil. Further, we have built up our Unnecessary List which is constantly updated, comprising over 2,400 ingredients prevalent in the market.
