This is the most important information for those who decide to use natural oils. The first thing you need to know is what are the two main types of oils. What is the difference between them. And which oil is better to choose.
Everyone knows about the benefits of vegetable natural oils and their magical cosmetic effect. But not everyone knows that the same natural oil can be of several types.
Firstly, there are base oils (they are also called fatty oils), and essential oils (they are also called esters or oil extracts).
Further we will talk about fatty base oils, they are of two types:
But does the degree of purification of natural oil affect its usefulness and how many nutrients and trace elements remain in it?
As it turns out, almost none. The usefulness of the oil is determined by the composition of the components that it contains. So, in the process of refining (additional stages of purification and filtration), the composition and amount of useful vitamins, fats and acids in it changes very slightly. Therefore, both types of oil are useful regardless of the degree of purification.
Of course, the amount of useful substances in unrefined oil will be a little more. But not in all cases, and not all people, unrefined oil is suitable. Why and what are the main differences, see below.
So what is the difference between oils, if both types are equally useful for their use in cosmetic and health purposes?
As noted above, unrefined oils are more saturated with useful substances, vitamins and minerals. Therefore, for cosmetic purposes, it is usually best to use unrefined oil. But they are not always and not all suitable.
Consider in what cases it is better to use refined oils.
