Posted on March 14 2023
Did you know, keeping your nails and cuticles healthy and moisturized is important for maintaining strong, beautiful nails? Neglecting your cuticles can lead to dryness, cracking, and even infections. Cuticle oils and balms are essential products in any nail care routine. They can improve the health of your cuticles and nails, prevent dryness, and help you achieve beautiful, healthy nails.
Cuticle oils are specially formulated to moisturize and nourish the skin around your nails. They contain a blend of oils that are easily absorbed into the skin, delivering essential nutrients and hydration. The oils help to strengthen and protect your nails, preventing breakage and promoting healthy growth.
We've specially formulated our cuticle oils with the best oils for nail growth and hydration. They include:
Jojoba oil is a highly prized oil for nail care because it closely mimics the natural oils produced by our skin, known as sebum. This means it is easily and quickly absorbed into our skin. When applied to the skin, jojoba oil moisturizes and protects the skin, keeping it soft and supple. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant, and vitamin B complex, which is essential for healthy skin and hair. Jojoba oil also contains minerals such as zinc, copper, and selenium, which help to nourish the skin, promote healthy cell growth, and soothe irritated skin.
Sweet Almond Oil:
Sweet almond oil is another natural and effective ingredient for promoting healthy nails. It is rich in vitamins A, B, and E, which nourish and hydrate the skin, promoting healthy nail growth. The high levels of vitamin E make it a great antioxidant that can strengthen the nails and protect them from damage caused by free radicals (such as pollution, UV radiation, and cigarette smoke). Antioxidants, such as vitamin E, can help to neutralize free radicals and protect the body from their damaging effects. Free radicals can damage the nails and make them more brittle and prone to breakage, which is why using products that contain antioxidants can help to strengthen and protect the nails. Sweet almond oil also contains protein, magnesium, and zinc, which stimulate nail growth and prevent breakage, as well as moisturize the cuticles, preventing hangnails and promoting healthy nail growth.
Sunflower Seed Oil:
Sunflower seed oil is an excellent moisturizer that can help prevent dryness and promote healthy nails. It contains fatty acids and vitamin E, which help to protect and strengthen the skin. The high levels of vitamin E can also help to strengthen nails, preventing them from becoming brittle and prone to breakage. Essential fatty acids in sunflower seed oil are crucial for healthy nail growth as they stimulate nail growth and prevent the nails from becoming thin and weak. Sunflower seed oil also moisturizes the cuticles, preventing hangnails and promoting healthy nail growth.
Macadamia Seed Oil:
Macadamia seed oil is easily absorbed into the nail plate and skin around the nails, providing deep hydration and preventing dryness and brittleness. It contains antioxidants and monounsaturated fatty acids, which strengthen nails and prevent them from becoming weak and prone to breakage. Macadamia seed oil also stimulates nail growth, protects nails from free radicals, and moisturizes the cuticles, preventing hangnails and promoting healthy nail growth.
Wheat Germ Oil:
Wheat germ oil is a nutrient-rich natural ingredient that can provide many benefits for nail care, including protection from damage caused by free radicals, healthy nail growth, and prevention of nails becoming thin and weak. Rich in vitamin E, this oil also promotes cell regeneration and protects the skin from damage. In addition to vitamin E, wheat germ oil is rich in other vitamins and minerals that can nourish and strengthen the nails, such as vitamins A, D, and B-complex, as well as zinc, iron, and magnesium. The oil is an excellent emollient that can deeply hydrate the nail plate and skin around the nails, preventing dryness and brittleness. Wheat germ oil can also be used to soften and moisturize the cuticles, preventing hangnails and promoting healthy nail growth.
A powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage and promotes healing. Vitamin E is a crucial nutrient that offers many benefits for nail care. As an antioxidant, it helps to protect the nails from damage caused by free radicals, which can cause the nails to become weak and brittle. Vitamin E also helps to promote healthy nail growth by stimulating circulation to the nail bed and supporting the production of healthy nail cells. Additionally, vitamin E is an excellent moisturizer that can penetrate the nail plate and the skin around the nails, providing hydration and preventing dryness and brittleness. This nutrient is also known to strengthen the nails, making them less prone to breakage and damage. Vitamin E can also help to soften and moisturize the cuticles, which can prevent hangnails and promote healthy nail growth.
Our cuticle oils are designed to deliver maximum hydration to your cuticles and nails.

The rollerball tip on our cuticle oil makes it easy to apply the oil precisely where you need it, without making a mess. Unlike cuticle oil pens, our rollerball tips won't clog, and you won't have to worry about too much oil coming out all at once either. Because they hold so much oil our cuticle oils will last you longer and won't require constant refilling like the cuticle oil pens.

Use daily or as needed to keep your cuticles moisturized and healthy. For best results, use in combination with our cuticle balm (more on that below).
Cuticle balms are thicker and more concentrated than cuticle oils. They contain a blend of oils and waxes that help to lock in moisture and protect the skin from environmental damage. The beeswax in our cuticle balm forms a protective barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss and keeping your cuticles soft and supple.

Cocoa butter is a natural and highly effective ingredient for promoting healthy hands and nails. Its moisturizing properties can deeply penetrate the skin, providing hydration and preventing dryness and cracking. The rich texture of cocoa butter also makes it an excellent emollient, providing a protective barrier to the skin and nails against harsh external elements. Additionally, cocoa butter contains antioxidants, such as vitamin E, which can help to prevent damage to the skin and nails caused by free radicals. These nutrients can also stimulate healthy nail growth and prevent the nails from becoming brittle and prone to breakage. Furthermore, cocoa butter can help to heal and nourish the skin around the nails, preventing and treating hangnails, and keeping the cuticles soft and moisturized. With regular use, cocoa butter can help to promote healthier, softer, and more beautiful hands and nails.
Beeswax is a natural ingredient that offers many benefits for hand and nail care. One of its primary benefits is its moisturizing properties, which can help to prevent dryness and cracking of the skin around the nails. The wax creates a protective barrier on the skin, locking in moisture and preventing further damage. Additionally, beeswax contains vitamin A, which can help to stimulate the production of healthy skin cells and promote skin regeneration. This nutrient can also help to improve the appearance of the nails, making them stronger and less prone to breakage. Beeswax is also an effective emollient, which can soften and nourish the cuticles, preventing hangnails and promoting healthy nail growth. Furthermore, beeswax has natural antibacterial properties, which can help to prevent infections and keep the skin and nails healthy.
How To Use Cuticle Balms:
Take a small amount of cuticle balm and massage it into the skin around your nails, focusing on the cuticles. Be sure to gently rub the balm into your skin until it is fully absorbed. For optimal results, repeat this process as often as needed, ideally at least once per day, to keep your cuticles moisturized and healthy. This routine can help prevent dryness and cracking, promote healthy nail growth, and keep your nails looking and feeling their best.
But, for even better results, use your cuticle oil and cuticle balm together! Using a cuticle balm in conjunction with a cuticle oil is a great way to maximize the benefits of both products. Start by applying the cuticle oil to each cuticle and massage it in gently. The oils will penetrate the skin and deliver essential nutrients and hydration. Once the oil has been absorbed, apply a small amount of cuticle balm over the oil. This will lock in the moisture and intensify the hydration, ensuring that your cuticles stay soft and supple. Repeat daily for best results.
