I often hear/read about emu oild having excellent absorbtion. I just read in this forum that camellia/tea oil has high absorption as well, and, if I'm not mistaken, rosehip oil as well.



I compared grapeseed and EVOO myself and found the EEVO to absorb more completely or deeply than the grapeseed. Today I might try castor and hazelnut. I have no tea or rosehip yet to try. Curious about almond, sesdame, and sea buckthorn berry too.

I am curious about EDSers' experience with this.

Anyone who can list the oils they can think of, or the ones they are familiar with of the ones I mentioned above and rank them loosely for absorption, I will be grateful.

Or if someone remembers a thread on this topic and can link to it.


I am also curious as to whether absorbability of oil correlates inversely with comedogenicity -- or perhaps correlates not at all.


If anyone can tell me how one finds out whether an oil qualifies as comedogenic, without doing one's own lengthy experiments, I'm interest to know that as well.

Thanks a bunch.

Jojoba oil absorbs very well. Its more like a wax. It is not comedogenic based on my own experience.

Seabuckthorn Berry oil it has an intense orange color and would stain the skin if it is used straight. It could be blended in another carrier oil like camellia oil.

Squalane (olive derived) and Macadamia apparently penetrate/absorb very well. Don't know about comedogenicity.

Preliminary results of my hazelnut investigation indcate at the moment that it does NOT absorb as well as EVOO.

Totally depends on the skin.

Jojoba is my go-to oil. Emu sits on my skin. Rosehip seed breaks me out.

Other faves are hazelnut, grapeseed, camelia, watermelon seed, kukui, kiwi, meadowfoam seed.

EEOV leaves me greasy.

See what I mean? You'll just have to test them yourself.

Google skin, comedogenic and oils and you'll be on the trail of lists of their (alleged comedogenicity). But, as I say -- you'll still have to try them yourself. . .

Good luck!

I've been using pure Seabuckthorn Berry oil as my body moisturizer for about 4 months now but my skin color did not change. It's the smell............ My kids asked me to wash my clothes seperate from theirs. Shock Shock Shock
