Our Answer for Winter Skin
Whipped Shea Butters are at the top of our list for winter skin. The secret to retaining the beautiful moisture created by your daily Oil & Water application is to seal it in with ingredients that prevent transepidermal water loss (the evaporation of water from skin into our external environment). After applying your daily Oil Serum & HydroSoul, apply one of our simple, rich Shea Butters.
The versatility of our Whipped Shea Butter is astounding. Use atop an oil and water ritual, as a daily moisturizer (when paired with a HydroSoul), as a moisturizing mask and even as a cleansing balm. Shea butter locks in hydration and nutrients, while allowing skin to breathe and pores to remain unburdened.
Relationships are the foundation of who we are. They are the strongest threads within our tapestry, and they are the roots that anchor us. We've partnered with Baraka to bring you Shea Butter that comes directly from the hands of the women of the northwestern region of Ghana, where they transform the raw, unadulterated shea nut into the rich, creamy yellow butter that plays a central role in so many of our products. For these women shea butter production is their sole livelihood and it plays a key role in the economic vitality of the whole community.
The ultimate refuge for dry, troubled & sensitive skin. Whipped Shea Butter with Olive Leaf rejuvenates and protects extremely dry and dehydrated skin, having a remarkable effect on wrinkles, softening and smoothing fine lines, all signs of stress held in our face and eye area. After a few days of consistent use skin appears noticeably improved. Our Whipped Shea Butter, rich in essential fatty acids, cinnamic acid, and vitamins C, E, and K, heals dry, sensitive skin conditions while providing maximum barrier protection without a heavy feeling or clogging tiny dermal pores. It is especially effective when treating red/angry skin conditions.
Our Whipped Shea Butters are a combination of luscious and nourishing oils: California- grown extra-virgin olive oil, and a Madagascar vanilla- infused jojoba oil. These restorative and concentrated butters are prepared by hand in small batches. Over a period of four to six hours we slowly add each oil into the raw unrefined shea butter as it gently and continuously whips. At the end, we add a proprietary blend of Flower Essences.
If you’re a fan of aged patchouli you’ll love this Shea Butter. We’ve added aged Indonesian patchouli to a luscious vanilla from Madagascar, and both are woven into our base of Shea Butter and nourishing oils.
A nourishing, softening, revitalizing moisture for the face. Think of it as a multi-omega, multivitamin, multi-nutrient for skin. An efficacious blend of shea butter and oils of rosehip, argan, pomegranate, prickly pear, sea buckthorn, calendula-infused olive, and frankincense resin infused jojoba.
Rich with boswellic acids that have maintained integrity through a laborious maceration and infusion process. Boswellic acid is known to have anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating effects, especially on mature skin. Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes. Frankincense is the second ingredient in our Sanctuary Butter.
