What’s important to you when choosing your massage oil? Ingredients? Lightness? Purity? Spread-ability? Cost? Works for all the treatments you offer?
We really are spoilt for choice with the selection of base massage oils available in Ireland today. From grapeseed, rapeseed, almond, apricot, sunflower, coconut, avocado to name but a few. Each different oil offering different ingredients and qualities.
Well I know a little about one massage oil – Pure Pro’s Ultra – and I use it because it ticks all of boxes and offers me, and my clients, much more than just being a base oil. I believe Ultra is THE best oil for Irish therapists and this comes down to the unique combination of natural ingredients – and the years of research that it took to get the formula just right.
According to Dianna Dapkins, creator of Pure Pro products:
“I worked on the formula for three years. Just tweaking it and tweaking it. I discovered in my research that there are quite a few types of Fractionated Coconut Oils ranging from Industrial grade all the way up to Pharmaceutical grade. Ultra is only made with the top Pharmaceutical grade. It was a matter of adjusting all the ingredients so that Ultra would have that "liquid lotion" texture without becoming sticky or too greasy”.
These ingredients are: Fractionated Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, Safflower Oil
Apricot Kernel Oil and Avocado Oil. So, here you have five different oils combined in Ultra – I actually think it should be re-named Ultimate Massage Oil.
I will be sharing more about these oils and their qualities in later posts - so keep checking in.www.purepro.ie/oil
