Our faces are the first thing people (usually) notice when they meet us for the first time. It's how we're remembered. It's how we stand out from the stranger next to us.
And sometimes we forget to take care of our faces. Everyone's face is different, but should be cared for the same.
That's where we come in. We spent a long time trying our different combinations or ingredients, different Essential Oil blends, testing on our human volunteers, and ourselves, until we finally created products that actually worked.
Why do they work?
Well you see, when you go to the store, and a nice lady offers you a really pretty looking jar, possibly a shallow frosted glass with metallic lettering and a $$$ price tag, we're intrigued. It's the next best thing! But what's in that jar? Have you ever actually read the label? Usually there's so many words with X's and O's, but not the kind of X's and O's we want. Our products only contain ingredients you can read and pronounce- and are natural. Our face oil for example is pure oil- no water, no synthetic additives, no chemical preservatives, no added colours like red #(whatever one is bad for you, probably all of them?). So what you end up with, is a (affordable) bottle of concentrated moisturizer, a healthy oil to moisturize your skin and take care of pesky issues that maybe water based products are drying out.
But my skin is oily! Shouldn't I strip it with alcohol based products or moisturizers that have no oil, to get rid of all the oil?
I mean if you want to. But no, probably not. Have you noticed that you continually have to use these alcohol based products non stop and your face is still oily? That's because you're removing your skins natural oils. How do we stop that? By counteracting the issue. Like dissolves like. It's basic science! When you cleanse AND moisturize your skin with oil it helps to balance your overactive oil production. Some of our very favourite human volunteers suffer from oily skin and it's been a huge help to them. Don't knock it til you try it!
I have skin issues like eczema and psoriasis, will your products cure these?
Cure? No. But, we have had people tell us that using our products have helped soothe and relieve, and even diminish the appearance of these issues. We make no claim to cure anything, or that they will help everyone. However we love hearing back from people who have found relief after using our products. Remember, everyone's skin is different! What works for you might not work for your friend. But going the all natural route is definitely an amazing step to take towards better skin care.
My lips feel like glass cutting sandpaper, what can I do?
Start with exfoliating daily or several times a week until you see relief. Then, use our lip balms! They're great! Seriously. Do you ever find you're having to apply lip balm over and over and over again because it just doesn't last? Us too. That's why we created a lip balm that's long lasting, and will make your lips super duper soft. Although some of our lip balms contain flavour oil (which are either 100% natural, or a natural/artificial blend; concentrated in a cottonseed oil base, and are gluten-free), they're completely natural otherwise. With a beeswax base and super moisturize butters or oils, you can say "BUH-BYE!" to chapped lips.
