What exactly do we use in our products?

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter is obtained from whole cocoa beans which are the seeds of Theobroma Cacao Tree. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it's often used for it's ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve it's elasticity. The fat cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold the moisture and improve it's natural glossy appearance. 

Shea Butter

Shea Butter is a fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea Tree. It's high in vitamins and linoleic, palmitic, stearic and oleic fatty acids, providing the skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for collagen production. 

Essential Oils

An essential Oil is a botanical extract that comes in a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile chemicals compounds from plants. They are extracted from different parts of a plant such as flowers, herbs or roots. The oils are pure extractions that are obtained through the process of steam. These 100% pure oils are neat, meaning that they have not been processed, diluted or manipulated in any way with solvents or other additives.  

Vitamin E Antioxidant

Vitamin E is a general term used to refer to a group of eight fat soluble compounds produced by plants known as tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and protects the cells from damage by molecules called "free radicals". Free Radicals initiate the deterioration of your skin's structural support and decrease it's elasticity, resilience and suppleness. 

Arrowroot

Arrowroot is a starch obtained from the rizomes of several plants. Arrowroot is used in cosmetics as a thickener. Unlike most thickeners arrowroot has the ability to thicken at room temperature, and at varying pH levels.

Agar-Agar

Agar is a jelly-like substance derived from red algae. Agar is used to gel, thicken and stabilize cosmetic formulations.

These are just a few of the many natural ingredients we use in formulating our products. We believe that using a natural product with no harmful chemicals is better for your skin, better for your health and better for our planet.
