One very hot and sunny Queensland Sunday, we exhibited our Sundance stall at a local market and were placed next door to another stall holder who was promoting (selling) the benefits of Frankincense and Myrrh oils.
By midday, a lady approached our stall with severe sunburn and asked to use our complimentary tester ‘Hydrasoft Moisturiser’. The neighbouring stall holder overheard the conversation and impolitely ushered the lady over to his stall to use his oils. The neighbouring stall owner had no idea about the ingredients and their benefits within any of our products.
There is no doubt in my mind that our neighbour had mostly good intentions to help the lady and to heal her severe sunburn, but he was obviously unaware of the basic principals when applying oils and creams to the skin…..especially in sun.
Creams and oils seem very similar. For topical application to the skin, they both are designed to nourish, heal, soften and moisturise.
Creams are mostly a blend of ingredients; oils, liquids, humectants, etc. They’re generally thicker than oils and quick to absorb into the skin, if formulated properly.
Oils are generally derived from plant or animal base with no additives. When used topically, oils naturally leave a thin, grease-like film over the skin and surprisingly, take longer to absorb into the skin. I would recommend highly, never ever apply oils topically when there is even a chance that the sun can touch any of your skin. Oils are wonderful for the skin, given the right environment to apply.
If you’re old enough to remember the 1970’s and early 80’s, you’ll recall when men and women would apply coconut oil to their entire body and spend all day outside, laying around a pool or beach. Back then, we were all none the wiser. It wasn’t until 1980 that Sid the Seagull from the “Slip, Slop, Slap” campaign reached out through our TV screens, making us aware of the dangers of the sun.
Thanks to Cancer Council Campaigns and community awareness/participation, we reducing our numbers towards sun related issues.
