Now is the time to start taking better care of your skin
Life is too short to spend it on complicated 10-step skincare routines. Our proprietary blends of pure, luxurious plant oil blends will give you the best skin you’ve ever had. We believe so much in our product, that we’ll give you your money back if you’re not satisfied!
Through meticulous 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 oils that leave your skin healthy and glowing. And the best part? Three to six drops is all you need for your face, and you’ll only need to apply it once during the day and once at night!
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.
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 regenerates (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!
Most commercial hair oils consist of 70-90% silicones, and often less than 5% are actual plant oils! Silicones are a plasticky, man-made lubricant that contains no nutritional value, and leaves hair feeling gunky and limp. Ever feel like the longer you use certain commercial hair products, the more weighed down your hair feels? It could be due to silicone build-up! Silicone is not water soluble so it's hard to wash our completely.
Silicone is much cheaper than plant oils, and certain kinds evaporate quickly, leaving the illusion of a dry finish.
Our hair oil is 100% plant oil! It's super concentrated, so you only need one to four drops per application. To put that into perspective, you'd have 10x or more the amount if you were using silicone based hair oils instead. Think of how much you'd save on your skincare if you switched to oils instead!
Our hair oil is made of 100% plant oils, and 0% silicones!
Pixie cut to ear-length: 1 drop
Ear to chin-length: 2 drops
Chin to shoulder-length: 3 drops
Shoulder-length and longer: 4 drops
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.
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!
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 and hair and let it absorb properly, the oil should not stain your clothes or bedding.
Our oils last 12 months after opening, and 24 months on the shelf. We have included Vitamin E (Tocopherol) in our products, which is not only nourishing, but helps reduce the rate of oxidation in the product!
Please remember to store our products in a cool, dark area away from light in order to extend shelf life. If you detect any changes in smell, it may have oxidized.
Love it, or receive a full refund on all purchases! We have implemented a 100% satisfaction guaranteed return policy, valid for 60 days after the original date of purchase! Products must be new or in lightly used condition - we reserve the right to void our guarantee on products that are heavily used.
Thank you for the chance to try your product through a sample. I am enjoying the daytime face oil. The nighttime is a little thick for the summer, especially with this summer's humidity. I am thinking it will be a perfect winter time face oil. Still looking forward to trying my hair and body oil samples yet.
I like this product. I liked how it felt on my face and how it absorbed into my skin.
Clarifying Face Oil Night and Day Oil Samples
Beautiful oils that glide on the skin, nourish and seem to brighten as well. I love the offer to purchase samples. I will purchase full size products.
Anti aging oil
I really like this product. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any oily residue on my face. As for the anti aging results it's a difficult to judge based on the amount of product I've used and the short amount of time.
Love the Oils
I am a 58 year old new fan of the oils! I ordered trial tiny bottles for the anti-aging facial oils and they sent me the oils for the body and hair as well. I like how the body oil smells and how it makes your skin smells so nice, fresh and soft after showering. The anti aging facial oils also makes your face feels soft. I pat the oils onto my skin after my usual facial routines. I like the oil for the hair too - it makes my hair soft and supple. I have short hair and I can really feel how nice my hair is when I ran my fingers through it after applying the oils.
