INGREDIENTS AND SKIN CARE GOALS

Organic Golden Jojoba Oil hydrates the skin and has antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties. It is helpful in reducing redness and calming skin. As a wax ester, jojoba oil mimics natural sebum, so it helps condition & seal in moisture, softening and smoothing your skin. When combined with beeswax, it also helps protect the skin barrier, reducing trans-epidermal water loss and sealing in moisture.

Lavender is a powerful flower for the skin. It offers antioxidant benefits that can help clear bacteria and excess oil, while boosting cell regeneration & circulation. It can also help with reducing the appearance of scars & wrinkles, restoring the skin's PH balance, combating free radicals, reducing redness & inflammation, and helps with hydration.

Blue Butterfly Pea Flower contains antioxidants and polyphenols, helping the skin with firmness and brightness, while adding and anti-inflammatory properties.

Blue Cornflower can help to tone, freshen, soothe, restore suppleness and enhance the overall appearance of skin. The anthocyanins found in cornflowers are particularly useful to nourish dry, sensitive skin and eczema.

German Chamomile provides excellent aid for dry skin. The anti-inflammatory properties can help calm skin inflammation and redness, soothe skin pain and rashes, while the anti-septic qualities are said to alleviate acne and flare-ups. Its azulene is credited for the calming and anti-inflammatory properties. The chemical also protects the skin from free radicals and boosts cell regeneration.

Blue Yarrow is well-known for reducing inflammation and is a great choice for assisting with redness & inflammation. It is cooling and has astringent properties that May help with balancing acne or oily skin.

Shea Nilotica is creamier and softer and has more beneficiary properties than any other shea butter variety. It is known for its healing properties, thanks to the presence of numerous fatty acids and plant sterols like stearic, oleic, palmitic, and linolenic acids. Raw, unrefined shea butter is efficient in helping with skin rashes, scars, & acne. Shea butter has numerous derivatives of cinnamic acid that display anti-inflammatory characteristics. Inflammations from skin conditions like dermatitis, rosacea, rashes, cuts, sunburns, and scrapes may be soothed by using shea butter on them. Shea butter stimulates the making of collagen, the youthful protein present in the skin. The vitamins A and E present in this butter may help keep the skin supple, nourished, and radiant. If used daily, it may even decrease wrinkles and also help prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. Its anti-aging characteristics may also help increase circulation to the skin and promote cell renewal.

Illipe Butter is high in oleic and palmitic acids, as well as vitamins A and E. Illipe nut butter aids in the retention of moisture as well as the inhibition of future damage to the skin. Antioxidant properties may help improve the skin’s overall complexion and texture, help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and is a beneficial moisturizer for the skin.

Sugar Squalane is sourced from non-GMO sugar and is bio-based & Eco-Cert approved. Squalane helps restore skin hydration and is non-comedogenic. Because its molecular structure is so close to the skin’s own, squalane oil penetrates deep into the pores where it targets your skin care concerns at a cellular level. Squalane oil fights off skin-damaging free radicals, & helps balance oil production, providing just enough moisture to keep the skin clear and healthy. Squalane oil has anti-inflammatory benefits, and may help boost blood circulation, which promotes the formation of collagen.
