Why does Clarins use hazelnut oil in its face and body oils?

1. Clarins oils

Over 60 years ago now, Clarins first launched its famous face and body oils. Originally used in beauty salons, they were then sold off the shelf due to customer demand. The Blue Orchid, Lotus and Sandalwood face oils and the “Tonic”, “Relax” and “Contour Body Treatment” oils each meet specific needs and form an integral part of a comprehensive beauty routine. The oils are a combination of hazelnut oil, plant extracts and carefully selected essential oils.

2. The benefits of hazelnut oil

Our planet abounds with plant oils, but Clarins chose hazelnut oil as one of the primary ingredients in its face and body oils. Hazelnut oil is one of the most stable natural oils available and is brimming with benefits. It makes a perfect base for cosmetic formulas, and is particularly nourishing because of how rich it is in oleic acid. Hazelnut oil leaves skin soft and supple with no greasy residue, and offers a host of benefits that work in harmony with the other plant extracts and essential oils that go into each specific treatment oil.
