The Power of Plant Oils this Winter

  • Facial oils protect your skin for long periods of time by locking in water and moisture that can be eroded by harsh weather and indoor heating
  • Manuka Doctor facial oils feature many Omega rich oils from a variety of plant sources
  • All Manuka Doctor oils are proven in independent trials to make skin look more luminous and younger-looking


As we head into the colder months with the heating kicking in, our skin can often feel dry and its appearance dull-looking. If you haven’t considered a facial oil until now, then now is most definitely the time to re-think about adding one to your skincare regime. Facial oils are a great way to rehydrate the complexion, whilst boosting radiance and skin firmness.

Since ancient times, people have extracted the oil from plant kernels, fruits and seeds and used them to care for skin. The composition of most natural plant-based oils is similar to the lipids of human skin and absorbed into the skin’s hydrolipid layer where they can be metabolised by our body, leading to highly nourished, healthy-looking skin.

Don't be put off about oils being greasy or increasing breakouts. The Manuka Doctor range of facial oils will work their magic without a greasy side effect and are quickly absorbed. Even oily and blemish prone skin can be improved and rebalanced. Facial oils protect your skin for long periods of time by locking in water and moisture that can be eroded by harsh weather and indoor heating.

The Manuka Doctor range of facial oils features many Omega rich oils from a variety of plant sources. Three of the main plant oils that feature in the Manuka Doctor skincare range include;

Argan Oil, extracted from the kernel of the Argania spinosa or Argan tree. This popular oil cares well for mature skin due to its moisture-preserving properties, making it feel wonderfully smooth and silky. Argan oil also contains vitamin E, a natural antioxidant.

Cranberry seed oil is another popular oil rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C, E and K and natural fatty acids which can help to improve the skin’s elasticity, boost collagen and firm skin.

Sunflower seed oil is a well known oil which is also non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores and typically won’t irritate most people. Sunflower oil can be used on all skin types, including dry, normal, oily, and even acne-prone.

Look for an oil that addresses your particular skin concern and which suits your skin type. The Brightening facial oil not only hydrates, protects and nourishes your skin it also helps to lighten pigmentation and brighten the complexion.

24K Gold Face Oil

One of the easiest ways to bring an instant visible radiance back to skin is by using the Manuka Doctor 24K Gold & Manuka Honey Face Oil. Formulated with real 24K Gold, the subtle gold shimmer gently illuminates skin to highlight facial contours and give a silken sheen. Not only that, the 24K Gold is also renowned for its age-defying properties. Skin dryness is one of the main causes of dull skin and the 24K gold actually helps to lock in moisture to keep skin firm by maintaining collagen and inhibiting the breakdown of elastin.

Our ‘Tried, Tested and Loved’ 24K Face Oil not only provides a subtle gold shimmer, it’s also clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and improve skin radiance. After just one application skin is visibly nourished, smooth, revitalised, brighter and more radiant. After 28 days use skin appears more younger looking and feels more even, firmer and well moisturised.

Designed for all skin types, we’ve also added ultra-hydrating New Zealand Manuka Honey to our 24K Gold & Manuka Honey Face Oil. Manuka Honey is a natural humectant that draws in moisture from the air and is a powerful elastin booster, whilst precious plant oils including Cranberry, Baobab and Marula deeply hydrate, condition and protect giving skin a healthy radiance.

“Absolutely love this product! Skin feels amazing even after 1 use, only 1-2 drops required for my whole face and neck, happy I don't need a huge amount of product compared to other products and the texture is fantastic, not greasy at all!”
Keegan C
“Lovely facial oil, does not make me break out with spots like other oils. I have dry skin and I apply this oil to my skin before bed and find it to be kind to my skin and no stinging sensation. I use it along with my gua sha stone it works a treat!”
Shabnam K

To use any facial oil, a top tip is to make sure you exfoliate regularly so it can sink right in to get maximum benefit. Try massaging your skin with upward strokes, this will increase blood flow and help move and drain any excess puffiness. Just use 2-3 drops of oil each time, remember a little goes a long way. You can mix it with your moisturiser for speed and if you wish also apply to your hands, elbows and around the eye area.
