New oil drilling technologies could increase the world’s petroleum supplies six-fold in the coming years to 10.2 trillion barrels, says a report released today by market research firm Lux Research.

But don’t ditch your electric car just yet. The development of such technologies is predicated on high oil prices – at least $100 a barrel – to offset the costs and induce a conservative industry to invest in and deploy new methods. And many of the technologies are still young.

Chemical EOR injects polymers and alkaline compounds into oil fields to help loosen oil from rock formations and push it into production wells. The China National Petroleum Corporation is the leader in this method, which it is betting will be 20% more efficient than just flooding wells with water to bring oil to the surface. But in the US, expect opposition to introducing large volumes of chemical underground anywhere near water supplies. Some other drawbacks: Chemical EOR doesn’t work well in oil reservoirs where temperatures are high and there’s a lot of salt and sulfur.

Still, here are some of the technologies startups and multinationals alike are pursuing:

Thermal intervention injects steam into wells to extract heavy oils or oil sands. The problem is, it takes a lot of energy to generate that steam, so some oil companies are turning to solar energy instead of natural gas or other fossil fuels. Chevron, for instance, has deployed solar fields built by BrightSource Energy and GlassPoint Solar at old oil fields in California to help recover heavy petroleum.

Derived from the nuts of the African shea tree, shea butter is a tallow-like substance that is commonly found in a solid form, but it melts at body temperature, and is sometimes used as a moisturizer and hair product, says Katta, adding she hasn’t seen her patients have allergic reactions to it. Unrefined, organic shea butter can also be combined with olive oil or coconut oil to create a smoother texture for application.

That said, Dr. Katta advises making sure your regimen is suitable for your skin — especially your face. For instance, she says, if your skin is prone to acne, consider using natural oils to moisturize only your body, and talk to your dermatologist before putting any new oils on your face. Skin type, whether dry, oily, combination, or sensitive, can play a major role in how skin-care products can affect your skin, according to an article published in May–June 2016 in the Indian Journal of Dermatology.

Olive oil doesn’t typically trigger allergic reactions, Katta says, but for the best results, be sure to opt for the extra-virgin variety. Olive oil contains vitamins A, D, E, and K, and some research, such as a study published in October 2016 in the journal Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology, offers scientific evidence of its potential as a moisturizer. With its heavy consistency, it is a great choice for an all-body application, Katta says. You may even want to try an olive oil cleanser or bar of soap for a clean that won’t dry out your skin.

Containing vitamin E and essential fatty acids, grapeseed oil is lightweight compared with other natural oils. It also offers antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, according to an article published in September 2016 in the journal Nutrition and Metabolic Insights. From her experience, Katta says grapeseed oil is less commonly used for skin than the other oils, but she’s optimistic about its potential use for this purpose. “I have not seen allergic reactions to grapeseed oil,” she says. “It definitely has a number of phytochemicals that have antioxidant benefits, too, so that's kind of intriguing.”

Katta cautions that some oils may be more likely to cause negative side effects than others. “If you have sensitive skin or eczema, I've seen a lot of reactions to things such as oil of cloves, oil of cinnamon, lavender oil, lemon oil. Those are some of my top concerns in terms of essential oils that can trigger allergic reactions.”
