Moisturizing: The Path To Beautiful Skin

Natural Organic Body Cream

The Path To Beautiful Skin Begins With Natural Cleansing and Moisturizing

Moisturizers seal keep your skin hydrated and supple. The cosmetic industry preys on our desire for beautiful skin by bombarding us with an overwhelming collection of beautifully packaged expensive products that promise a miracle in a jar.

We do not promise miracles. What we do promise are natural safe products made with plant oils and butters that are easily absorbed and nourishing to your skin.

No synthetic fragrances or colors, no chemical preservatives, just wholesome natural and organic ingredients you can trust.

Typical moisturizers are either called lotions or creams based on the proportion of oil to water. The first, and most abundant, ingredient on a bottle of lotion is water. The water evaporates quickly and you are left with dry skin. Our moisturizers do not contain water.

Generally, products with more oil are more emollient and provide greater long lasting protection. However, the more oil a product contains, the greasier it feels on the skin initially. Notice I said initially. Where a lotion will absorb in a few seconds, a concentrated cream make take several minutes. However, once absorbed it will no longer feel greasy and you will notice that it needs to be applied much less often.

A common question we often receive is... “You have so many different moisturizers, what's the difference?” We hope the information below will help you choose the best moisturizer for your skin.
