CoreComplex™ Oil Blends

bareLUXE CoreComplex Oil Blends

These oil blends are the foundation on which bareLUXE and our products are built. Each CoreComplex™ blend is a synergistic mixture of oils that complement one another. They are grouped together in ways that make biological sense based on their historical and medicinal uses. 

These proprietary blends have now been transformed into an entire line of natural skincare products by elevating them with high-performance botanicals that work.

Green Beauty Elevated  

CoreComplex base blends are not currently available for individual purchase. They can each be found as a component in our elevated, more active products. 


CoreComplex bare Essential Blend

These clean ingredients could be accused of being boring - but we strongly disagree! Many are often chosen as a dilution oil, but combining them creates a very soothing, light, and protective mixture. This blend is found in our bare Essential Elevated Face Oil.      

  • Camellia Oil: similar to our own natural skin oils, anti-oxidant, moisturizes, smooths, nourishes.
  • Grapeseed Oil: antibacterial properties, improves elasticity, contains proanthocyanidin which improves skin tone when used consistently, may help unclog pores by replacing deficient linoleic acid in the skin.
  • Hempseed Oil: moderates oil production, anti-inflammatory, hydrates and attracts moisture, soothes.
  • Jojoba Oil: similar to our natural oils, controls sebum production, improves texture, antibacterial properties, potent antioxidant, may support collagen synthesis.
  • Squalane (plant derived): similar to our natural oils, exceptional hydration particularly in aged skin, antioxidant.
  • Sunflower Oil: emollient, strong antioxidant, soothes, strengthens protective barrier, relieves temporary redness, often used by those with eczema or for babies. 


CoreComplex™ Northern Rescue Blend

These ingredients are native to Northern Europe and North America. Known for their very high antioxidant potency, these hardy plants withstand harsh environmental conditions. This blend can be found in our Northern Rescue Elevated Recovery Oil, a face oil for dry skin.

  • Cloudberry Seed Oil: high in beta carotene and ellagic acid (a powerful polyphenol).
  • Hempseed Oil: moderates oil production, anti-inflammatory, hydrates and attracts moisture, soothes.
  • Meadowfoam: 98% long-chain fatty acids gives strong emollient qualities without greasiness, may boost the performance of your sunscreen (but does not provide sun protection alone). 
  • Oat Oil: soothing and provides all-day moisturization with a silky feel, contains high levels of natural ceramides.
  • Plum Kernel Oil: antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties; more potent than both marula and argan oils.
  • Rosehip Oil: highly moisturizing, felt to improve skin brightness, and visible pore size. 


CoreComplex™ Age Support Blend

Whatever your beliefs about aging, supporting your skin through the process is important. These carrier oils were all selected due to their historical uses and their high value as antioxidants, emollients, and natural levels of Vitamin A and E. This blend can be found in our Bakuchiol Age Support Elevated Face Oil.

  • Babchi Seed Oil: historically used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic healing practices for conditions of the skin and scalp (note: this carrier oil is no longer used as pure Bakuchiol is added to the elevated formulation. This change was made due to the concern about psoralen content).
  • Buriti Oil: has more extractable beta-carotene than carrots. Also contains high natural levels of vitamin E, and oleic acid, so it is very moisturizing.
  • Daikon Seed Extract: natural antioxidant emollient that has a silky, light, non-oily feel. Enhances barrier function. High levels of bioflavonoids.  
  • Pomegranate Seed Oil: contains high levels of punicic acid which is known to have anti-inflammatory effects and offers regenerative benefits to maturing skin.
  • Rosehip Seed Oil: a mainstay in many skincare formulations, rosehip oil is very moisturizing and helps brighten and repair the appearance of sun damage and scars.
  • Sacha Inchi Oil: highest natural levels of Omega-3, contains beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol which have both emollient and humectant properties. 


CoreComplex™ Reveal Blend

These are all nourishing oils high in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Many were chosen for their natural aroma for our luxurious oil cleanser (coming soon!). They each add something unique to our selection of waterless exfoliating and cleansing products. The first product released that contains the CoreComplex Reveal blend is our Crystal Infused LUXE Polishing Balm.

  • Baobab Oil: With a life span of over 500 years, the Baobab tree is considered "Tree of Life". Baobab oil is non-greasy and is absorbed quickly. It has a light, nutty scent. It’s a multipurpose carrier oil that has significant skin, hair, and nail benefits.
  • Castor Oil: High in a unique fatty acid, ricinoleic, castor oil has antibacterial and humectant properties. This is a penetrating oil that’s favoured for the oil cleansing method due to its natural astringent properties.
  • Hibiscus Seed Oil: Though not a powerful exfoliant, hibiscus contains natural levels of alpha hydroxy acids – malic and citric. This helps boost the brightening and exfoliating power of other botanicals. It also has a gentle, floral scent.
  • Passionfruit Seed Oil: With a subtle, fruity, and tropical aroma, this powerful antioxidant and has antibacterial properties and is suitable for all skin types. Also known as maracuja oil, it is moisturizing and protective.
  • Sweet Almond Oil: This is another favourite oil for cleansing due to its light texture and delicate aroma.
  • Sour Cherry Kernel Oil: This oil has a unique, natural, pleasant scent. It also has naturally astringent properties that help tone the skin and balance your natural oil levels.
