The official Rhi Rhi Nails It Cuticle Oil is completed, we have a Cometic Product! With its own Cosmetic Safety Report and Sustainability/Compatibility Assessment. It’s been 2 years in the making, the initial idea came when I 1st started doing nails back in 2014! I then spent years researching oils our skin will love, testing formulations, working tirelessness on research. Patience really is a virtue.
Working on a passion project that you envisioned at the start of a new career is exciting but did I underestimate the process…. YES! Not only did I need to develop the administrative part of the process, I also needed the practical part. Then to top it off I needed the money to fund the project. All taking time and energy that luckily I had and was willing to apply. I’m extremely happy, I feel the finished product couldn’t be better. I have loved the journey and I’m loving the excitement of bringing it to the world.
Small steps every day still take you on the journey, the same as the large steps. I chose the small steps. I apologise if whilst taking those small steps, it’s meant you have been subjected to me continuously talking about oil for years. But I’m grateful for the patience everyone has granted me.
If you are new to Rhi Rhi Nails It and here for the Cuticle Oil story
Who I am – My name is Rhiannon Johnson-Smith I’m a working nail professional servicing the Bedfordshire area with mobile nail appointments. From manicures to spa pedicures and everything in between. I am trained by the biggest nail brands in the industry and have gained nearly 10 years experience and knowledge. I am completely personable with solid customer care skills.
As a professional, I am passionate about nail health so much so, that this is where the original idea came from.
When I was younger I used to mix creams and products together on my dressing table and call them my “concoctions”. Who would have thought 24 years later I would use those dressing table skills to help people have gorgeous nails.
It’s exciting times in the healthy nails journey. With COVID-19 terrorising the planet earth an antibacterial gel being applied tirelessly. We are required to pamper ourselves at home instead of going to spa’s and salons. It’s the perfect time to start caring from your hands and start fixing some nail problems!
Imagine the world where you use a product that only has the ingredients that you wanted inside of it……
This is the 1st product from the Rhi Rhi Nails It Mani/Pedi line. It has only 100% natural ingredients, it is vegan, vegetarian, cruelty free and non GM. All listed with no hidden items. Providing you the transparency needed to enjoy the product knowing we care.
The amazing 100% naturally occurring fruit and vegetable oils are blended to make a clean, simple and gentle cuticle oil. It is free from synthetic fragrances and preservatives. Manufactured in the UK by a qualified Nail Professional with close to 10 years of hands on nail experience.
Smaller molecules in oil products allows it to penetrate deeper into the top layers of skin, even more so than a moisturizer. Rhi Rhi Nails It Cuticle Oil is not too thick, is not gloopy and will absorb quickly. No one wants greasy fingers whilst trying to change gear on the way to work. Its light, its absorbent and a wonderful way to keep your nails looking healthy.
To ensure what I thought was true to be true, I carried out a case study. Heres what came out of it…..
Grape Seed Oil
Grape seed oil is a by-product of the winemaking process, pressed from the seeds of the grapes. The seeds are loaded with the natural plant compounds know as oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes, or OPC’s. These compounds have beneficial properties for the body, including being anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, anti-viral and anti-bacterial. The Main omega-6 PUFA in grape seed oil is linolenic acid, this fatty acid can help reduce inflammation in the skins middle and outer layers. The powerful antioxidant properties work to tighten the skin to feel firmer by promoting the restoration of collagen. Its high vitamin E, C and D content, proteins, mineral and linolieic acid make the oil an effective emollient that penetrates your skin quickly without leaving behind any oily residue.
Jojoba oil is the liquid produced in the seed of the Simmondsia chinensis plant, a shrub which is native to southern Arizona, southern California and north western Mexico. The plant is slow growing and difficult to cultivate, it thrives in the harsh desert climates that could kill most living things. Jojoba oil contains natural forms of vitamin E which works to seal your skin with a protective barrier to keep it from loosing moisture, which helps prevent bacterial infections from forming. This vitamin also works to help your skin fight oxidative stress caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and other toxins. Jojoba oil’s make up is so similar to the oil (sebum) your body naturally produces that your skin can’t tell the difference. This sends a signal to your sweat follicles that your skin doesn’t need additional sebum for hydration.
Avocado oil is an edible oil pressed from the fruit of the Persea Americana. It is pressed from the fleshy pulp surrounding the avocado pit and not the pit itself. The most abundant fatty acid in avocado oil is oleic acid, a fatty acid that provides numerous health benefits along with vitamins A, D and E to help moisturise and protect your skin from damaging UV rays and also increase collagen metabolism. With very high skin penetration ensuring rapid absorption.
Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil
Through a method of known as cold-pressing the oil is extracted from glands located in the peel of the grapefruit. The grapefruit is a citrus hybrid originating in Barbados as an accidental cross between two introduced species, the sweet orange and pomelo both of which were introduced from Asia in the seventeenth century. When 1st found it was nicknamed the “forbidden fruit”. Essential oils absorbed through the skin transmit messages to the brain region, positively assisting heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing and immune function. It can also reduce stress, stimulate circulation, increase energy, enhance mood and improve digestion. Calming effects with a decline in the hormone cortisol which is released in response to stress.
Direction for use
Apply a little oil onto the brush and massage it into the nail and cuticle area. The brush holds plenty of product so no need to dab dab dab in and out the bottle lots, which is great as this bottle will last you a considerable amount of time.
Take a few minutes to massage the product in, life is busy and fast paced, have just a few minutes for yourself, daydream, meditate, take deep breaths. Whatever it is you feel you don’t have time for in life. Try doing it whilst massaging vitamins into your nails. Massage is known to lower the stress hormone cortisol. The lives we live at the moment means we are very likely to have too much cortisol swimming around.
The best time to use cuticle oil is in the morning or before bed. The morning is potentially the easiest as you add it into your shower and dress routine. Brush your teeth, put your pants on, oil your nails. Easy!
