Reviewed and recommended: Jo Wood Usiku Organic Body Oil

Is a Solution for:
Dry Skin
April 1, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 3 Comments
It is an oil, so don't expect it to penetrate quickly, and the initial smell is a bit like holiday season pot pourrie, but otherwise Jo Wood Usiku Organic Body Oil is a lovely product. The base oils are sweet almond, apricot and jojoba. Every single ingredient is a natural plant extract. The skin softening agents are arctic bilberry, grapeseed and evening primrose. Soothing agents are echinacea, calendula and st john's wort. There is also a little bit of vitamin E. No preservatives nor anything else that is either pointless or irritating.

    <p>I hate to sounds obsessed with Skin Biology products (ok, so maybe I am), but you have to give their Calypso Oil a try. I skipped the smelly versions, and just got the basic which is made from octyl palmitate, sesame oil, and sweet almond oil (though there is conflicting ingredient info on some pages of the labrynith website). It is a light dry oil that soaks in IMMEDIATELY - pretty cool!</p>
