carolynp said:I don't think you are going to get a non oily face serum made from oils, BUT you can Cut it down some by including some Essential Oils into your serum ,I would also suggest researching some more about which oils you use and there SKIN BENIFITS. I would not nessesarely use johoba oilfor a face serum because it is actually a wax that does not easily absorb into the skin but rather sits on top much longer than other oils makeing it an ideal MASSAGE oil but not the best choice if you want it to absorb into the facial layers of the skin. The johoba alone will give you a greasier feel.
Try this ...Half oz Avacado Oil, half oz Grapeseed,1oz Rosehip or Evening Primrose,or, Apricot kernal,or Kukui. Add to this 25 drops Lavender EO, 10 drops GeraniumEO, 10 drops Neroli or Vetivert EO,you can google these to see there skin benifits or you can google RAINBOW MEADOWS there web site can really help when trying to blend skin benificial EO's and which blends are good for what. Hope this helps. One more suggestion,, you only need a very few drops applied to the face to do the job you will get the feel as to how much your skin can handle without being greasy.
carolynp said:Yes ,but they were asking about a less greasy formula and JOJOBA being considered a liquid wax well to each his own.Jojoba does not mimic human sebum(skin oils) but rather helps to regulate the flow of them.Don't mean to split hairs but. :twisted:
