Our Ingredients

Every ingredient we use is grown and processed with the highest degree of respect for protecting the environment, the workers and the natural properties of the plants.

Coconut Oil

(Cocos nucifera) Expeller Pressed – Certified Organic (Samoa). This Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is hand-processed within an hour of cracking open the shell, thus the aroma, vitamins, and nutrients are retained, creating a fragrant and health giving oil rich in vitamin E and naturally occurring antioxidants. It is a soothing moisturizer with a heavenly scent.

Beeswax

(Cera Alba) Traditionally Processed Wax – Certified Organic (Canada/India). Pure Golden Beeswax reduces moisture loss from the skin and has an almost immediate soothing effect on skin cracks and fissures. It has a sweet honey-like fragrance and a golden color. We use Beeswax as a natural thickener in all of our balms.

Cocoa Butter

(Theobroma cacao) Traditionally Processed Butter – Certified Organic and Fair Trade (Peru/Uganda/Kenya). Derived from the cocoa bean, Cocoa Butter is a deliciously rich and creamy skin soother and moisturizer that has been used as a dry skin healer for generations. It provides a protective barrier that helps retain and restore the moisture that your skin loses from cleansing and exposure to the elements. All Cocoa Butter purchased and included in our products is Fair Trade Certified by Fair Trade USA.

Jojoba Oil

(Simmondsia chinensis) Cold Pressed Oil – Certified Organic (Israel/Argentina). Jojoba oil is a liquid plant wax made from a desert shrub. It has the unique property of being similar to naturally occurring human skin oil, thus being an excellent carrier oil, as it is readily absorbed and very safe to use.

Seabuckthorn

(Hippophae rhamnoides) CO2 Extract – Certified Organic (Lithuania). Sharp and pungent in scent, this brilliant orange oil has remarkable cell rebuilding and restorative properties. High in unsaturated essential fatty acids, Seabuckthorn helps to maintain healthy skin and is an effective treatment of burns, sunburns and general wounds.

Shea Butter

(Butyrospermum Parkii) Cold Pressed – Certified Organic (East Africa). Made from the African Karite Nut and cold pressed, thus retaining its rich antioxidants and high levels of vitamin A and E – well known for skin healing. It has excellent moisturizing and emollient properties and has a phenolic profile similar to that of green tea.

Sunflower

(Helianthus Annuus) Cold pressed seed oil – Certified Organic (Mexico). Hailed for its high Vitamin E content, lightweight Sunflower Oil is a robust antioxidant and has traditionally been used as a skin emollient to help prevent scarring. Sunflower Oil is also a source of essential fatty acids, which maintain soft and supple skin.

Almond Oil

(Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis)

Kukui Oil

(Aleurites moluccana)
