As we age, our skin undergoes significant changes- Drying, thinning, and becoming more demanding. What once worked may not be as effective or healthy anymore!
Enter oils—a natural solution for sensitive aging skin, free from fillers and heavy artificial scents found in creams. Oils create a protective barrier, nurturing and preserving your skin's natural moisture. Your skin craves the right oils, not a bewildering mix of 40 ingredients found in face creams. Embrace the magic of oils and let your skin thrive!
Hi there, we are Jenny and Joyce, the Co-founders of Velvette!
We are sisters, and an Accountant and Cosmetic Chemist/Chemical Engineer duo from Calgary, Alberta, Canada! Joyce, a certified Cosmetic Chemist, has consulted for numerous multi-million dollar beauty brands in North America.

With premium plant oils like sea buckthorn, and extracts like hibiscus and white willow bark ferment, our richest face oil is packed with vitamins and antioxidants that work overnight to promote skin elasticity and moisture.

Sea Buckthorn Oil: Contains the elusive omega-7, and may stimulate skin regeneration and promote skin elasticity. Prorevive Blemish Balm Complex (Lactobacillus/Salix Alba Bark Ferment Filtrate): An all-natural extract clinically shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhances the skin's ability to retain moisture. Hibiscus Flower Extract: Also known as "nature's botox", hibiscus extract helps to firm skin and boasts high levels of Vitamin C to even out skin tone.
Warm three to six drops in the palms of your hands and apply them on your face with a gentle pressing motion. Best used on damp skin. Apply as the last step of your skincare routine. May be used alone or with other skincare products.
Not all face oils are created equal! At Velvette, we researched, analyzed, and tested over 200 different plant oils to find perfect combinations that absorbed quickly and left the skin feeling velvety soft.
One drop of oil is just as, or even more moisturizing, than one pump of cream! Think of how much you'd save on your skincare if you switched to oils instead!
Creams typically consist of 60-70% water, 5-10% oils, and numerous other ingredients in trace amounts. Your skin produces oil for moisture and wants more of the right oil. Why are you giving it 40 ingredients in your face cream instead?
Because creams are mostly water, the water content delivered by the cream initially would have provided some hydration to the skin, but evaporates quickly, which is why you'd have to reapply cream over and over throughout the day. However, oils don't need to be reapplied as frequently since they resist evaporation, and will act as a breathable film to help seal in moisture, and protect your skin from the elements!

We have three different types of face oils: Clarifying, Calming & Anti-Aging.
Clarifying: For oily or combination skin types looking to balance and regulate their sebum production.
Calming: For dry or sensitive skin types to soothe inflammation, irritation and skin dryness.
Anti-Aging: For dehydrated skin types showing signs of aging, our richest, youth preserving series aims to nourish and protect the skin free free radicals.
When designing Velvette's face oils, we made sure to only use ingredients that were low on the comedogenic scale - Meaning they are unlikely to clog your pores! In fact, our Clarifying Face Oil series contain ingredients known to regulate and balance your skin's sebum, and were created specifically for those with oily, blemish prone skin.
Your skin produces different levels of oil (sebum) throughout the day, with sebum levels peaking during the mid-day. Your skin cells also regenerate (cell mitosis) at different rates throughout the day, with the peak around nighttime during sleep.
We have optimized our oils to match your differing sebum levels by creating a lighter formula for the daytime, and a richer formula at night. During the day, we've created an oil that blends well with your existing sebum, whereas at night, an oil that works to replenish lost sebum!
Our daytime oil contains ingredients that provide more barrier functions to help protect your skin from the effects of the elements, whereas our nighttime oil contains powerful and effective extracts and ingredients that take advantage of your skin's peak repair and recovery period at night.
Our all-natural oil blends contain only pure, luxurious, premium-grade plant oils, vitamin E, and trace essential oils. There are no synthetic perfumes, drying alcohols, harsh ingredients, or known irritants used in any of our products. Our gentle oils have been the favorites of many customers with sensitive skin!
All of our oils are formulated only using natural or naturally derived ingredients! Our flagship oil blends are made of only the most luxurious, premium organic plant oils in high ratios not found in most other skincare products on the market. Our ingredients all comply with ECOCERT's standard on natural ingredients.
Our oils feature subtle scents that are not overpowering or artificial smelling.
We do not use any synthetic fragrances in our products. We use small quantities of essential oils in our formulations, which provide both therapeutic benefits and a pleasant aroma. Each oil blend has been formulated by a certified Cosmetic Chemist, and all essential oils used are within safety limits. If you have any known sensitivities, please review our ingredients list and perform a patch test before use.
Our oils absorbs quickly, and only a small amount is needed per application! As long as you apply just enough for your skin or hair and let it absorb properly, the oil should not stain your clothes or bedding.
All of our face, body and hair oils are proudly made in Canada. Our beauty tools, such as our Gua Sha for Facial Massage, are sourced from China.
Meticulously Designed:Through extensive research and testing of over 200 different plant oils, Co-founders Joyce, a certified Cosmetic Chemist, and her sister Jenny have created powerful blends of face oils that leave your skin healthy and glowing.
Non-Greasy & Quick-Absorbing:Unlike other oils on the market which feel greasy and sticky, ours leaves you feeling velvety soft! Try and feel the difference for yourself!
Customized & Specialized:Through a deep understanding of each plant oil's unique properties and textures, we've created six different blends of oils for the face, one for the body, and one for hair! Each of our oil blends features distinctly different plant oils, and works together to deliver effective results!
