Back to Basics: The Benefits of Traditional Cold-Pressed Oils in Skincare

Skincare products these days are full of different plant and vegetable oils, like olive, coconut, soybean, and more. But the thing is, not all oils are made the same way, and some are much better for your skin than others.

A lot of oils you find in commercial skincare have been processed with high heat, chemicals, and other methods that strip them of their natural goodness.

Traditional cold-pressed oils, on the other hand, are made slowly and carefully to preserve as many of their benefits as possible. You can tell the difference between a high-quality cold-pressed oil and a run-of-the-mill one just by looking at it and smelling it - the good stuff will be bright in color and have a lovely, distinct scent.

Unfortunately, a lot of the really good oils go to the food industry, so many skincare products use lower-quality oils as they are far cheaper. So if you're looking for skincare products with oils that will really nourish your skin, it's important to check the quality of the oils they use.

At Four Cow Farm we ONLY use extra-virgin cold-pressed oils which are the highest quality oils available - you'll notice the difference immediately!
