  • oliveoil

    Olive Oil Olea europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil

    With the highest level of polyphenols, as well as potent antioxidants Vitamin E and phytosterols, olive oil decreases the exposure of free radicals, known to damage the skin’s healthy cells and advance the appearance of aging. Historically, due to its powerful antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, ancient Greeks and Egyptians have used olive oil as a cleanser and topical remedy for injuries and wounds for many thousands of years. The specific compound oleocanthal, found in olive oil, is said to stop certain enzymes that cause inflammation, which makes this oil a great remedy for inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis, and eczema. Olive Oil is also rich in monounsaturated fatty acids that deeply moisturize, lubricate, and regenerate the skin on a cellular level.

    We source this incredible gift from Bari Olive Oil out of California, a family based operation who is authentic in their cultivation.

  • Sunflower Oil Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil

    Sunflower oil acts as an effective emollient, which means that it helps the skin retain moisture without clogging the pores. Acne is caused when excess oil and sebum get blocked in the follicles under the skin and get infected by bacteria. Sunflower aids in this process by nourishing the skin with antibacterial and antifungal properties, while simultaneously cleansing the poors. The vitamins A, C, D, and E, along with the essential fatty acids that are present in sunflower oil form a protective layer, which prevents bacteria from coming in contact with the skin and works to diminish the exposure of the skin to damaging free radicals.

  • Squalane

    Many skin care experts and other medical professionals assert that squalane has a number of positive effects on uneven skin pigmentation, scars, and age spots. Much like retinol, this oil is believed to fight free radicals in the skin that are caused by the sun’s UV rays. This is an important consideration, because dark spots on face and hands are often caused by the skin’s reaction to long-term exposure to the sun, which creates more melanin in those areas to protect it. The use of beauty products that contain squalane may fade these marks over time because of the oil’s ability to sink deep into the skin and repair it.

  • bee

    Beeswax Cera Alba (Beeswax)

    When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, allowing the pores of the skin to breathe while sealing in the healing constituents of the other ingredients in the formulation it is used in. It is also considered a humectant, an ingredient that “attracts” water. Therefore when you put it on, you attract water molecules, helping to keep skin hydrated over time.

    Our beeswax is locally sourced here in Colorado, and is manufactured sustainably. Beeswax is a byproduct of the production of honey, and therefore its use within skincare is not only healing but regenerative as well.

  • Shea Butter Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit

  • Jojoba Oil Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil

    This is a magic ingredient. Your skin recognizes the liquid wax produced from the seed of the jojoba plant as similar to its own natural wax ester. And, because the skin can recognize this chemical compound, when applied topically skin pores remain open, allowing jojoba to penetrate beyond the epidermis layer, carrying other important nutrients with it.

    Jojoba naturally contains vitamins A, B, D, and E which are known as skin healing vitamins, as well as minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, nourishing the skin on a cellular level.
