Organic Sunflower Seed Oil

Expressed from the kernel of the sunflower plant, sunflower seed oil is easily absorbed with a light texture. With a high amount of vitamin E, sunflower oil helps in the prevention of damage to sensitive skin cells by ultraviolet light, or UVA, from the sun. Additionally, studies have shown that vitamin E may prevent scarring, smooth the appearance of existing wrinkles and generally improve the appearance and health of your skin.

Organic Shea Butter

Our Unrefined, Fair Trade West African shea butter is a natural fat taken from the shea nut; with Vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E are particularly helpful for sun damaged skin and to prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. Vitamin F acts as a skin protector and rejuvenator. Shea butter easily penetrates the skin and it’s noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores). Stay tuned for a blog post about this gorgeous butter coming soon!

Similar in benefits to shea butter, mango butter is a powerful skin food, however the fatty acid profile varies slightly with an enhanced level of anti-oxidants and vitamins A, C, and E. Mango butter can act as an effective protectant for skin and hair, shielding against harmful UV rays and potential sun damage.
