Brown oil in a jar on a table

Shimmering Body Oil

This nourishing gel-to-oil formulation glides onto the skin leaving a light shimmering effect.

Once applied, skin is left feeling soft and moisturised - with no greasy after feel.

It uses HIPEgel® Oleo C, our emulsifer for High Internal Phase Emulsions (HIPEs) where the oil phase is greater than 90%. COSMOS approved it enables formulators to make high oil HIPEs easily at room temperature, creating light, leave-on formulas with 'quick break' effects and varied textures such as this gorgeous gel-to-oil.
