Product Description

Whether you call them "face oils" or "facial serums," nourishing, unrefined organic oils can moisturize, soothe and help restore natural balance to facial skin. 

A luxurious blend of organic facial oils and botanicals formulated for normal to oily skin. People with oily skin are often told to use oil-free moisturizers with harsh ingredients that strip skin of its natural oils which triggers the skin to overcompensate by producing even more oil.

  • Argan oil’s anti-inflammatory properties help with irritated skin, blemishes and acne for a firmer, smoother complexion
  • Argan oil contains Squalene, a natural component of our skin oil (sebum), helps the skin regulate its sebum production and adds natural moisture
  • Pumpkin oil is great for both oily/acne-prone skin and dry damaged skin
  • Pumpkin seed is loaded with essential fatty acids that help to balance skin moisture without a greasy feeling
  • The anti-inflammatory properties of Pumpkin Seed oil soothe and protect skin from irritating conditions like eczema and allergies
  • Nourishing oils help restore natural balance to skin by regulating oil (sebum) production, not depleting it
  • An infusion of organic botanicals in vitamin E rich sunflower oil can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles and calm inflammation
  • Recommended for Normal to Oily Skin

All Natural, Certified Organic, Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Non-GMO

FAQs

Whether you call them "face oils" or "facial serums," nourishing, unrefined organic oils can moisturize, soothe and help restore natural balance to facial skin. 

While many people, especially those with oily or acne prone skin tend to shy away from oil-based moisturizing, it can be a very important step in daily skin care. An organic facial oil helps to increase the moisture content in the skin and prevent further moisture loss.

Organic Argan Face Oil SerumIf you have oily skin, nourishing organic oils can help mimic the natural skin sebum which in turn sends signals to oil producing cells that say, "hey my skin is moisturized so stop producing oil." 

Using products created to "dry out" oily skin will actually trigger the oil glands to increase oil production, which only exacerbates the oily skin problem. A wholesome moisturizer helps balance skin oil production.

If you have dry skin an organic facial oil made from unrefined botanical oils creates a protective but breathable barrier that slows moisture evaporation and thus helps lock in moisture.

Natural Organic Facial Serum OilIf you have irritated skin a facial oil can help calm inflammation and soothe red irritated skin.

It is especially important for those (like me!) with maturing skin to keep your face adequately moisturized to help with fine lines and wrinkles. 

The main thing is to make sure that you are using the right kind of moisturizer.

The most nourishing face oils are those made with unrefined, certified organic plant-based oils.

Organic-Pumpkin-Seed-Facial-Serum


Unrefined oils are either cold-pressed or expeller-pressed.

They are minimally processed without chemicals under temperature controlled conditions.

Minimal processing ensures a nutrient-rich, high-quality natural oil.

USDA Certified Organic means the botanical oils are free of synthetic additives, pesticides, and preservatives. 

 

Stay away from petroleum-based products that contain mineral oils which clog your pores and cause breakouts.

The answer is, YES!


Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is a USDA Certified Organic company. Certified Organic Skin Care

The most important consideration in any business is its customers. Today's world of misleading claims, false advertising, and simple deception, often leaves consumers trying to discover the truth about personal products and their ingredients.

  • We want our customers to know that we are committed to transparency in everything we do.
  • We want our customers to know that when we say "organic," we mean it.
  • We believe that in becoming a USDA Certified Organic company, our customers do not have to wonder if we really use certified organic ingredients or if our organic products are truly organic.  
  • So we choose to be a certified organic company and abide by the strict standards required for organic certification. 

Why Did We Become a Certified Organic Company?

What Do All of the Organic Labels Mean?

Organic Soap Labeling

 

 

Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.

The Leaping Bunny Program was developed in 1996, by The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC), to identify and support companies that are doing their part to help eliminate the unnecessary use and mistreatment of animals to test cosmetic products and ingredients. The CCIC is made up of eight animal protection groups including the Humane Society of the U.S., as well as groups from Canada and Europe.

At Chagrin Valley we obviously do not test our finished products on animals (other than human volunteers), but what about the raw materials, the ingredients we use? Many products display labels claiming that their finished product is ‘not tested on animals’ but this does not guarantee that the product ingredients are actually free from animal testing.

The CCIC Standard is a pledge that a company makes to remove animal testing from all stages of product development. Our pledge to buy ingredieCruelty Free Natural Skin Carents that are cruelty-free is integrated into the purchase order contract for all of our suppliers.

Personal care products displaying the “real” Leaping Bunny logo are certified ‘cruelty-free' using the internationally recognized Humane Cosmetics Standards. These rigorous standards require that no animal testing is performed or authorized for finished products or ingredients in any stage of product development by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers after a fixed cut-off date. All Leaping Bunny companies are subject to independent audits and pledge commitments are renewed on an annual basis.

Natural Organic Face and Eye Cream

We hand blend all of our own products in small batches to ensure freshness, consistency, and perfection.

Our products are not made to sit on store shelves for years and years.

Although there are natural preservatives within the chemical structure of natural ingredients, they are nowhere near as potent as the synthetic preservatives used in commercial products to prolong shelf-life. 

Other than soap, our products are remade every few weeks and none are very old when they are sold. Our products, other than soap, should be opened within 6 months of purchase. 

Since we use no preservatives or chemical stabilizers, the more important question is, "how long will the product last once it has been opened? 

Once opened, skin care products become exposed to dirt and microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts, and molds) that are found in the air and on the skin.

As soon as you open and begin to use any product, simply the way in which you use it will affect its lifespan.

Natural Organic Skin CareSo, we are beginning to use the PAO (period-after-opening) symbol. These symbols are already available on the product pages of our website and we are in the process of adding them to all of our labels.

The POA symbol is a standard symbol that identifies the useful lifetime of a skin care product after it has been opened for the first time.

As you can see from the picture on the left, the symbol is an open jar with a written number and the letter "M" for the word "months."

A product with a "6M" would mean that it is good for 6 months after opening. 

Tip: write the date you open a product for the first time on its label so you can keep track of the period after opening. 

This POA number represents our best suggestion. There are many factors that can affect the lifespan of a product.  If a product is discolored, has an unpleasant smell or looks odd, the product should not be used and should be discarded.

  • Each time you place your warm fingers into a tin or jar, you melt some of the butter which can change the consistency of the product.
  • Fingers also introduce bacteria and other contaminants into the product.
  • If a product has not been stored properly, for example, if the lid has been left off for long periods of time, the product may ‘go off’ before the period after opening has passed.
  • As scented products age, some of the natural essential oil scent may be lost. Pure essential oils just do not have the staying power of synthetic fragrance oils.
  • Over time, natural colors may also fade.

If you’re like me, and you find an old dusty product hiding in a drawer, makeup bag, or even a suitcase from your last trip, you can call us with the lot number and we can verify its age. Obviously, if it seems off in any way, toss it!

Please note: This PAO symbol is widely used in Europe to recommend the length of time a product remains usable after opening, for products that have a shelf-life of at least 30 months. Our products do NOT have a shelf-life of 30 months before opening.

Testimonials

Dear Chagrin Valley Soap, I have had HORRIBLE skin since I started puberty.  I am now 35 years old and became fed up with continual break outs and terrible skin.  I began teaching at a local college this year and was actually embarrassed that my young students had better skin than I did.  I found your website via a google search for sensitive skin. After using your marshmallow chickweed soap, argan pumpkin facial oil, and whipped squalane moisturizer for only a month, my face is healed and CLEAR!  I have never had clearer skin, and to top it all off, I have NEVER been able to use any moisturizers that didn't make me break out worse than normal.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart, as now I have beautiful skin and actually feel like a 35 year old woman with a great complexion, not a teenager with nonstop breakouts.  Please don't ever stop making your wonderful products.  A heartfelt thank you to all of you there!  Catherine, Montana


Just wanted to let you know that i am LOVING the argan pumpkin facial oil.  I started needing some kind of facial moisturizer 2 or so years ago, but have been using nivea creams and things.  They seemed to work fine, nothing special but even though i liked how it felt going on it didn't seem to last very long.  By mid afternoon the dry flakes were back.  I thought that plain oils would make my skin feel oily but they soak in pretty fast and my skin is just glowing.  It is amazing.  I bought the tiny sample of that one and the pomegranate.  I suppose I will to try the pomegranate one too.  My face thanks you all.  Sarah, Virginia


Hi Chagrin Valley Family, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed using the Argan Pumpkin Facial Oil. This oil is a bit rich and I have to admit that my skin had to adjust at first…I have never used Argan oil before and I did get a few little bumps on my cheek, But after that…WHOA NELLY!  My oily skin couldn’t have asked for anything better! 

I found that my skin responded best to this product using the oil cleansing method. I wet my face, use exactly seven pumps, massage it in for a few minutes and then remove the oil with a wet washcloth heated up in the microwave. My skin has never felt softer and it glowed!  I have a light to medium brown complexion with deep yellow undertones and after using the oil, it looked like I had used a bronzer/highlighter on my skin.  I have tried the trial sizes of your other oils, but my skin loves this one the best. Thanks for such a wonderful product!  I will continue to use it as long as you make it! Thanks and God Bless! Stephanie, Kentucky
