Nourish Face & Body Cream
Available in Plain, Refreshing Mint, and Soothing Calm varieties.
Also available in a Minipack - (3) 5ml jars; 1 each of Plain, Refreshing Mint, and Soothing Calm
Made from certified organic unrefined shea butter, and certified organic sunflower oil, this light, whipped cream is perfect to use as face moisturizer after cleansing, lotion everywhere your skin needs extra nourishment and moisture, or even as a tattoo aftercare product.
Sunflower oil and shea butter both have 0 rating in terms of comedogenic ratings. This means that they will not clog your pores. Sunflower oil also penetrates your skin with oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid) helping to maintain proper natural moisture levels, but it also has a thin viscosity and absorbs quickly so your skin is not left feeling greasy. Shea butter is much creamier and imparts long lasting moisture as it absorbs into your skin. A little goes a long way with this product!
There are no added fragrances in this product. While sunflower seed oil has no smell, shea butter has a very distinct scent. Some people love it! Some people don't consider it their favorite thing. Because this product is only made from these two ingredients with no fillers, additives, or preservatives, the smell of the shea butter will come through very well. I've found that I really only smell it when opening the container. As soon as I rub it on my skin, I no longer smell it.
I love to use this cream daily as my face moisturizer after using Island Ash Moisturizing Cleanser. My skin is always left feeling soft and clean, never greasy like other moisturizers that I’ve tried.
I am not a medical professional, just someone who is looking for natural alternatives for my own and my family’s well-being. We use all products that I make or I would not be willing to sell them.
CAUTION: Refreshing Mint
Sometimes there is a very low risk that peppermint may irritate mucous membranes. It is advised not to be used near the face of infants and young children. I keep the dilution rate below max recommended levels to minimize this possibility. However, it is always a good idea to check with your own or your child’s physician. It may also present a risk in cases of cardiac fibrillation or in those with a G6PD deficiency. Eucalyptus oils of all varieties present similar issues and are not recommended on or near the face of children under 10. I also keep the dilution rate of eucalyptus lower than max dilution to help minimize this possibility. The variety of eucalyptus is radiata, which is milder and more child friendly than the more traditional eucalyptus globulus. The smell of radiata is generally considered more pleasant as well.
This product is not meant for internal consumption as eucalyptus can be very toxic when taken internally. However, no essential oils should be used internally without guidance from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner.
