The Science

“Three things can not be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

Amolee

Triple-oil Blend

The skin is a puzzling organ. Incredibly, it has to be soft enough to allow movement, tough enough to resist breaking and tearing, and sufficiently porous to breathe and make a healthy amount of sebum –the oily substance that coats, moisturizes, and protects the skin. The superficial layer, known as the stratum corneum, is our first-line defense against the outside world. To ensure the skin’s health and vitality, the moisture balance of this outermost layer is essential.

Many plant butters, esters (wax) and oils, found in the nut, seed or fruit, are ideal moisture retention agents. Some are so light, they nearly mimic the skin’s natural sebum. And the benefits don’t stop there! These compounds are loaded with essential fatty acids, vitamins, and other properties that help nurture skin health and promote healing. The trick is understanding the properties of these botanicals, finding the proper ratios, and determining how to best combine them to create optimal formulations.

At Amolee, our physician-led R&D team uses cutting-edge science to study botanical oils –in depth. Among our findings, our research yielded a unique formulation that delivers a gentle, all-season therapeutic blend that benefits all skin types. Made with 100% pure, cold-pressed, unrefined carrier oils, our trifecta  –jojoba, sunflower, and safflower has also proven to be effective on sensitive and acne-prone skins. The triple-oil blend is genuinely excellent for your body –head to toe. Read on to review highlights of the outstanding benefits each one provides.

We prioritize both responsibly harvested and ethically sourced ingredients.

We never, ever test on our furry friends!
