Besides the wonderful integrity of your skin care line, these products smell better than anything I’ve encountered before!

Great products! Well worth what I paid for them. They are not an extravagance, they are a necessity! My pores appear smaller, and the Garnet Exfoliant has just about completely gotten rid of the bumps in my skin by opening the clogged pores.

In my mid twenties I found out I was allergic to most kinds of chemically derived fragrance. And as most products, cosmetics, toiletries has these, I was so glad to be introduced to a true organic product. My skin has never looked better.

Ingredients Benefits
Certified Organic Aloe Barbadensis (aloe vera) Leaf Juice Aloe vera has healing soothing, antibacterial and moisturizing properties. It is used to relieve burning, itching, minor cuts and first and second degree burns. Recent studies indicate that aloe vera has the ability to accelerate cell (basal keratinocyte) growth in the skin.
Certified Organic Helianthus Annuus (sunflower) Seed Oil Sunflower oil is expressed from sunflower seeds. It has a very high level of linoleic acid, which demonstrates superior skin compatibility and increases the moisture content of the skin (skin hydration is proportional to the level of linoleic acid in the skin).
Certified Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Seed Oil Jojoba oil is a yellow liquid wax pressed from the bean of the desert Jojoba plant. The wax, similar to skin sebum, gives a silky smooth feel. Jojoba has excellent moisturizing and protective effects.
Zinc Oxide A soft, heavy, white mineral ground to a powder that acts as a natural UVA/UVB sun block and creates a soothing, protective barrier for the skin. Zinc brings coverage and a colorless base to our cosmetics.
Certified Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (shea) Fruit Butter This organic plant butter is produced from the nuts of the large Karite tree in West Africa. Some clinical observations suggest that Shea Butter increases local blood circulation in the skin, improving the elimination of waste products. Other studies suggest that Shea Butter helps to improve the elasticity of the skin, making it a valuable addition to products for all skin types. The unsaponifiables and cinnamic esters in Shea Butter give it anti-microbial and moisturizing properties and provide light protection against UV rays of the sun.
Certified Organic Zea Mays (corn) Starch Cornstarch is an ultra-fine, powdery flour ground from the endosperm, or white heart, of organic corn kernels. It is soothing to skin and very absorbent of moisture.
Certified Organic Ethanol (sugar cane alcohol) A product of organic sugar production and is of the highest food quality. It is beneficial by carrying active plant extracts deeper into skin. Sugar cane ethanol is a natural solvent for organic herbal extracts, a natural emulsifier and stabilizer.
Non-GMO Lecithin A natural plant phospholipid from non-GMO soybean oil. The uses of phospholipids in cosmetic products are many - they are superior skin restorative agents, moisturizers and have the remarkable ability to penetrate the epidermis (top layer of the skin) and carry substances to the cellular level.
D-panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) Panthenol is the provitamin of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). It improves the moisture-retention capacity of the skin and stimulates skin regeneration.
Aroma (proprietary blend) A proprietary blend of organic Essential Oils to add a wonderful aroma to our cosmetics.
Sclerotium Rolfsii Gum Sclerotium rolfsii gum is a natural gum sourced from bacteria that produces an instant gel base when combined with water. It is a polysaccharide produced through a fermentation process of sclerotium rolfsii on a glucose-based medium. Sclerotium Gum has natural skin smoothing as well as soothing properties. It is used primarily in the cosmetic industry, but can be safely ingested.
Certified Organic Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender) Essential Oil The pure essential oil from the freshly cut tops of lavender flowers is useful for all skin types. It regulates sebum production, fosters the regeneration of new skin cells and soothes inflamed skin.
+/- iron oxides Natural ground mineral pigments that provide color to our cosmetics. The "+/-" indicates "more of / less than" iron oxides. For example, the foundations are all basically the same formula but as the product gets darker (from porcelain through to almond) there are 'more of' the iron oxides that give the product its color.
