Cat Out of the Bag: Our New Face + Body Cream

April 05, 2016

Isn’t it time we made healing and hydrating our skin easy… and dreamy?  Our new Face + Body Cream is exactly that. This head to toe wonder cream is an ideal daily moisturizer for all skin types– including those with eczema or psoriasis, mamas, babies, and everyone in between.  

The cream is packed with gorgeous organic butters and all-star organic plant oils like tamanu, rosehip and pumpkin seed. It refreshes dry, itchy skin while reducing scars and fine lines. Formulated for delicate facial skin and the whole body, our Face + Body Cream will penetrate quickly without clogging pores. Though it’s not scented with essential oils, the cream smells sweetly of the unrefined organic oils it’s made with. It’s deeply nourishing for skin and a multi-tasker at its finest. The cream can be used as a gentle makeup remover – it is especially great for stubborn eye makeup, and for growing bellies, sore nipples and even your little ones!

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!

Unrefined, Organic Mango Butter

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.

Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil

Cold pressed and unrefined, pumpkin seed oil is a delicious culinary oil and skin food! Rich essential fatty acids, it’s a champ at regulating proper skin sebum (oil) production, making it superb for both oily/acne-prone skin and dry skin. The seeds are rich in zinc, which is a great antioxidant and skin healer. Talk about a wonder-oil!

Pressed from the fruit of the wild rose bush, rosehip oil is a fast penetrating, non greasy oil for dry, weathered and dehydrated skin. High in lineolic acid, Vitamin C and A, it’s great for congested and aging skin. Read more about the importance of fatty acids here.
