Skin has an affinity for the emollience, lipid barrier protection, hydration sealing effects, and dense nutrient profiles of oils + butters. They sink deeper into skin's surface layer, bringing with them their beneficial nutrients. So, we want to make sure we use the most pure, vibrant + nutrient dense we can find. Our oils + butters are unrefined, containing the highest amount of naturally occurring nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids. Rich in their natural color - vibrant + full-strength in their unfiltered state, their nutrient profile is obvious in their texture, aroma + more importantly, their superior nutrition for skin.
THERAPEUTIC GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils are powerful, concentrated botanical therapy. It takes hundreds of pounds of plant material to produce one pound of essential oil. We use them with great consciousness, care + respect, for both the plants who contribute them, and for your skin, by using them in conservative dosages that provide the greatest benefit for your skin without overpowering your skin or your senses.
IN-HOUSE MADE BIOFERMENTATIONS EXTRACTS + INFUSIONS
Plants, flowers, fruits, roots + barks contain nutrients + constituents that impart valuable health, strength, restoration + protection to skin. We produce in-house biofermentations, extracts and oil infusions, and work with the most integrous wildcrafters + herbalists to offer you the freshest, most potent, most bioavailable ingredients for your skin.
Biofermentation increases the nutrients of plant material, making them more abundant in nutrients than their un-fermented counterparts, and exponentially more bioavalable + absorbable by skin.
Extracts use water and glycerin to extract the water soluble components of plants, flowers, fruits, barks + roots into the extract base. Nutrients that translate to water or glycerin extract include Flavanoids, Amino Acids, Enzymes and water soluble vitamins, such as Vitamin C.
Oil Infusion extracts the oil soluble components of plants, flowers, fruits, barks + roots, infusing the oil friendly properties of the botanic into the carrier oil. Nutrients that translate to oil infusion include Omega Fatty Acids, Polyphenols, and Carotenoids.
Water is not the first ingredient in our cleansers, mists, serums + moisturizers. In fact, we don't use it at all. While water does have benefit for skin when used consciously, we prefer to leave it out of our formulas in order to offer you the most concentrated, undiluted products. Instead, nourishing, active, hydrating elements like organic aloe vera + plant and flower distillates are included in our "water"-based recipes.
NATURAL, NON-TOXIC PRESERVATION
Our products are made weekly, to offer you the most fresh, nutritious, active + beneficial skin + body care. To keep our products at their most vital and free from potential spoiling, we preserve them with safe, non-toxic botanically based technology, such as Radish Root Ferment Filtrate (probiotic fermented radishes), Aspen Bark Extract, Potassium Sorbate, and Rosemary Extract CO2.
