Our natural and organic body oils are bursting with benefits of cold-pressed plant oils that give your skin a silky soft touch and a gorgeous glow – and much more besides.

Here we help you to identify all the benefits of body oil and explain how the plant oils used in our organic body oils can help you to achieve softer, healthier skin.

Our Alexandra Kay wellbeing range features two organic body oils – a scented body oil to bring the added benefits of essential oils, and an unscented version which is perfect if you have sensitive skin or if you like to create your own scent blends.

5 benefits of body oil

The natural and organic plant oils that we use in our range of natural body oils were all chosen for their softening, nourishing benefits and the way that they work in synergy to rejuvenate dry, dull skin.

Here are 5 benefits of body oil:

  1. SOFT, GLOWING SKIN: The nature of body oils leaves skin silky soft and glistening with good health.
  2. SKIN BARRIER STRENGTH: Our body oils are packed with plant oils that nurture a strong skin barrier and calm itchy, irritable skin.
  3. LOCK IN HYDRATION: Simply apply a light layer of body oil to seal in moisture after a bath or shower.
  4. RELAXATION: On days where your muscles ache or you need to unwind, use a body oil to create slip for massage.
  5. SELF CARE: Body oils that are scented with lingering essential oils can bring benefits to the mind as well as the body.

Discover the natural actives in our body oils

Made with a high concentration of luxurious oils that linger on your skin to deliver lasting benefits, our Alexandra Kay body oils are designed to calm, comfort and replenish.

Inside every bottle you’ll discover a skin-kind blend of plant oils rich in the Omega-3,6&9 essential fatty acids that skin needs to build a strong and healthy barrier.

  • Regenerative Rosehip Oil nourishes your skin with Omega fatty acids and promotes skin rejuvenation
  • Protective Jojoba Oil helps your skin to retain moisture and softness
  • Soothing Sunflower Seed Oil has excellent emollient properties which boost hydration.
  • Grape Seed Oil is rich in vitamins and helps to repair damaged skin.

Both body oil blends also feature the innovative ingredient CB2-Skin™ Biofunctional, which is derived from Patchouli and reduces irritation and itchiness.

How should I apply body oil?

Body oils make a great weekly skin treat and are ideal for a relaxing Sunday self-care session.  You can apply your body oil as often as you like and if you have particularly dry skin, using a nourishing body oil daily will help to strengthen the skin barrier by sealing hydration into the skin.

The secret to getting maximum benefits from your body oil and giving your skin an unrivalled glow is to apply your organic body oil to the skin after an evening bath or shower. Lightly stroke it into the skin and allow the oil in soak in.

For extra skin-soft results, exfoliate your skin first then apply the body oil once your skin is clean and deeply purified. Whilst our organic body oils can be applied to dry skin, applying them when the skin is slightly damp will lock in an extra layer of moisture into the skin.

There’s no need to wash body oil off the skin and no need to apply any further moisturiser; simply leave the oils to soak into your skin overnight and wake to beautifully soft skin.

Can I use body oil for massage?

Our natural body oils can also be used for massage, and one bottle of Time to Ease Muscle Relax Body Oil or Time to Soothe Body Oil will provide enough slip for approximately 20 neck and shoulder massages and 5 full-body massages.

If stiff joints make movement uncomfortable, work a little Time to Ease Muscle Relax Body Oil onto the affected area to relieve tenderness and stiffness. This can be particularly helpful if inflammation causes your joints to feel stiff in the morning or late at night.
