Soybean oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the soybean plant (glycine max). Soybean oil is used for its hydrating properties in skincare products like creams, serums and body lotions. It can also be found in lip balms and sunscreens.


Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil


Soybean oil is derived from the soybean plant, which is native to East Asia and is now cultivated worldwide.


Soybean oil is generally well-tolerated on most skin, but those with soy allergies should avoid products that contain soy-derived ingredients.


Creates Moisture-Rich Skin

Soybean oil is rich in essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, that help hydrate and lock in moisture.

Strengthens Skin Barrier

The fatty acids in soybean oil can reinforce skin's natural barrier to prevent water loss and maintain skin elasticity and suppleness.

Protects against Environmental Damage

Soybean oil contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that protects skin from free radicals and environmental damage that causes premature aging.

Smoothes and Calms Skin

It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm and soothe sensitive or irritated skin.

Evens Skin Tone 

Regular use of soybean oil can contribute to the reduction of hyperpigmentation or uneven pigmentation for a more even skin tone.

Manages Acne

Despite being an oil, soybean oil has a lightweight texture that can be used on acne-prone skin. It can also help balance oil production and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
