Our ingredients are very important in our recipes. Every ingredient is chosen for its unique properties and ability to help heal and sooth tired skin. Many people react adversely to the thought of oil and wax in their products. The myth is that these ingredients are greasy and that they will plug your pores and cause pimples. This is completely false. Large cosmetic companies have lead us to believe this myth in order to sell us patented chemicals that they can make a killing on. The majority of these are contaminated with toxic components that do more damage than good. Natural oils, waxes and butters are provided free by nature and anyone can use them. This does not bode well to the cosmetic giants that want exclusivity on certain patented chemicals so they can charge a huge premium. The funny thing is that the natural antioxidant and emollient qualities found in oils, butters and waxes does a way better job of actually healing the skin and reducing wrinkles than any synthetic chemical ever could! Natural ingredients our skin understands. Hundreds of thousand years of using natural ingredients has made our skin especially receptive to fast nutrient absorption. Modern chemicals used in commercial products have only been around since the early 1800’s. Unfortunately our skin has not developed the ability to distinguish the difference between good and bad and will absorb anything you put on it. This is why natural is so important to us. Feeding your skin what it craves results in noticeable rejuvenated skin that no synthetic chemical ever could reproduce!
