Decléor Only Uses The Best

Decléor utilise only the very best ingredients: “Every essential oil we use has proven clinical efficacy,” explains Jen Hirsch, beauty botanist and Decléor ambassador. “The brand combines active ingredients with scientifically-selected essential oils so as you get great results for every skin need.

The Essential Oils Inside Target Every Need

The key to maximising the potential of essential oils is to suspend them in a nourishing base, which is exactly what Decléor do with other ingredients like apricot and peach kernel oil – these work in tandem with other essential oils to provide visible results. Each Decléor range has a key ‘essential oil’ at the heart to help you shop with ease and focus on your individual needs – for instance, White Magnolia is loved for its anti-ageing benefits while Lavender tackles fine lines and Green Mandarin helps those looking to re-energise their skin for better glow.

Each Formula Works Fast

When put in contact with your skin, your body heat activates the power of essential oils to give off the scent – the result? Not only a calmer headspace but speedy skincare benefits, too. It’s one of the reasons Decléor’s formulas as so popular – not only do they overhaul the appearance of your complexion, the entire process or applying the products is a hugely satisfying experience. Take the time to massage them into your complexion – breathe in the power of their essential oils before applying it directly onto your skin.
