Oil and Water - Butters & Balms
The Foundational Ritual. The most important thing you can do for your skin. When it comes to our Butters & Balms, they create a vitality you can feel. A vitality you can smell. A vitality you can see on your skin. Nourish. Hydrate. Moisturize.
Oil and Water is our unique moisture/hydration technique that Evan developed in her esthetics practice to treat both the dryness and chronic dehydration that she was seeing in her clients, as well as to help rebuild the skin’s protective hydrolipid barrier. It was a staple in her practice in the early nineties, and it has been the foundation of our skincare line since our inception in 1999.
Why? Together they mimic the topmost layer of the skin — the hydrolipid barrier — and infuse the skin with moisture, hydration, and deep nutrition. This simple pairing realigns our skin with its own innate rhythm, supports the skin’s own natural defenses, enhances the skin’s ability to detoxify, and encourages the skin’s own moisturizing and hydration strategy. When layered together oils hold the waters to the skin, while waters anchor the moisture from the oils more deeply. Daily application of our butters & balms rejuvenates and restores, and has an remarkable effect on wrinkles, softening and smoothing, easing and erasing signs of stress held in our face and eye area. After a few days of consistent use skin appears noticeably improved.

How to Use Butters & Balms:
As Moisturizer:Melt a small amount in the palm of your hand, then massage into skin. For deeper moisture, blend with one of our Facial Tonic HydroSouls.
As Moisturizing Mask: Massage about two fingertips of Balm into skin. Lay a warm, damp washcloth over face to steam into skin, pressing over cheeks, chin and forehead. Repeat until completely absorbed.
Day Moisturizer:Taking a finger-full of Shea Butter warm and soften between the palms of your hand. Massage into area of face or body to be treated. Finish by misting with of one of our Facial Tonic Hydrosols to increase hydration and penetration.
Shea Treatment Mask: An alternative to our Clay Treatment Masks, our Whipped Shea Butters make ideal regenerating, nourishing and restorative treatments for dry and/or sensitive skin in need of rebuilding from over-use or over-reliance on harsh glycolic (AHA) treatments, fruit enzymes, or dermabrasions. It is worth noting that ‘natural’ fruit enzymes can weaken the integrity of the epidermal layer resulting in thin, desperately dry and splotchy skin.
How to apply a Shea Mask
Step 1:Warm a small amount of Whipped Shea Butter between the palms of the hands and massage into clean, slightly damp skin. Leave on to fully absorb – at least 15 minutes.
Step 2:Enhance the Shea Butter Treatment by pressing a series (two to three or more) of warm washcloths just against face, allowing the moist warmth of the washcloth to penetrate the Shea Butter into the skin.
Step 3:Finish with a final wipe, removing any remaining Shea Butter off face. Your skin will look and feel exquisitely clean, velvety smooth, and calm.
This treatment helps to restore, protect and strengthen skin structure.
