Fushi are passionate about health and wellbeing, they use organic, cold pressed and unrefined oils in their products. I have been using the Passion seed Oil (Maracuja), Tamanu Oil and Carrot Oil. I find oils are great way to treat my dry skin, they can be quicker absorbing than heavy creams. I can’t vouch for the health benefits of ingredients but I'm hopeful that they are doing me some good in the long run.
Passion Seed (Maracuja) Oil
Passion Seed (Maracuja) Oil
“This oil comes from the seeds of the Passion Flower. The exotic Passion Flower has many health benefits and is most commonly known for its calming properties. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. This is great for protecting the skin against free radical damage and keeping it youthful. Massaging Passion seed oil into painful joints can help reduce the pain. For massages, it can be mixed with another carrier oil, such as Sweet Almond oil.”
I have to say I’m not won over with the scent as I find it bitter and nutty but it is wonderfully light feeling and disappears quickly.
Virgin Organic Tamanu Oil
“....uses of Tamanu oil extend to a wide range, including helping to heal scars, stretch marks, acne scars, anti aging, abrasions and sun burn. It has antioxidant, anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties and aids in the regeneration of the skin. It is often recommended for acne prone skin and for dry and scaly skin conditions”
Tamanu on paper sound like the oil made for my eczema prone dry skin. It is slightly heavier than the Passion Seed but still doesn't feel greasy. It too has a natural scent which I think has a similarity to olive oil.
Organic Carrot Oil
“Carrot Tissue oil is cold pressed from the flesh of whole carrots infused in Sweet Almond oil, making it extremely rich in Beta Carotene, Vitamins A, B, C, D and E and essential fatty acids. It is excellent for sun damaged skin, due to its high content of Beta Carotene. It is also beneficial for dry skin, ageing or wrinkled skin, is known to help skin regeneration and to moisturise. It also makes a great deep conditioner for dry hair. It can also be used to soothe burns.”
I've been warned by Jen that carrot oil stains skin so that put me off trying on my skin because I've been having wedding dress fittings. However, unlike the other oils Carrot Seed can be taken internally so the recommendation is to blend into a smoothie or drizzle on a salad. I am someone who likes to drizzle olive oil on my food so I am happy to swap over to this one. The infusion with almond will make this unsuitable for some.
My only criticism is I found the oil difficult to dispense from the bottle. There is a plastic drop stopper which didn’t work well for me but I solved this issue by removing it. I was able to remove with my fingers or you could use a blunt knife. I definitely prefer to pour from the bottle but the stopper obviously prevents spillage.
I recommend having a look at Fushi's website as their range is extensive and they have much more to offer. Have you tried any products from Fushi? Do you have a favourite?
