🧪 INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN 🧪
🌱 SUNFLOWER OIL – Composed primarily of linoleic and oleic acids and rich in Vitamin E. Sunflower oil has excellent penetrating and moisturizing qualities while displaying good spread ability on the skin. Sunflower oil is well-tolerated by all skin types.
🌱 SOYA OIL – Composed primarily of linoleic acid and oleic acid but also rich in alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), stearic acid, and palmitic acid. Soya oil allows for the infusion of lipids to hydrate and protect skin cells. Soya oil helps replenish the lipid barrier to help hold in the skin’s intrinsic moisture while softening dry, chaffed, and damaged skin.
🌱 VEGETABLE GLYCERIN – Glycerin serves as a humectant helping to draw water in to nourish dry skin
🌱 STEARIC ACID, CETYL ALCOHOL, AND PALMITIC ACID – These are naturally occurring waxy compounds that help thicken lotions and creams
🌱 EMULSIFYING WAX – E-waxes prevent separation of the oil phase and the water phase of lotions and cream, so the lotions are able to have both nourishing (oil phase) and hydrating (water phase) properties.
🌱 VITAMIN E – This fat-soluble vitamin serves as an anti-oxidant.
🌱 POTASSIUM SORBATE – Potassium sorbate is the stable salt of naturally-occurring sorbic acid and serves as a preservative in personal care products.
🌱 MEADOWFOAM OIL – Meadowfoam oil is one of the most stable triglyceride oils due to a composition of over 98% long chain fatty acids. Meadowfoam seed oil leaves skin feeling very soft without being greasy. It is absorbed quickly and leaves a lighter feel than many other oils.
🌱 JOJOBA OIL – Despite its name, jojoba “oil” is technically a liquid wax. Jojoba oil moisturizes the skin while providing a soft, silky feel.
🌱 YOGURT – Rich in milk fats to nourish and lactic acid to help stimulate collagen production.
🌱 ALOE VERA – Aloe Vera has been in use for medicine for thousands of years with references in both the Old Testament of the Bible and Egyptian writings from about 1500 BCE.
🌱 VITAMIN C – Vitamin C is used in the formulation of personal care products as an antioxidant to improve stability.
🌱 CITRIC ACID – Citric acid helps to inhibit the growth of microbes and helps buffer the pH of the final product.
🌱 GERMALL PLUS – Every lotion MUST have a preservative, because bad little microbes like bacteria and mold love those nourishing fats and oils just as much as our skin. Without a preservative, EVERY lotion and cream will become unsafe to use within a few days. Although they are beneficial for other reasons, antioxidants like Vitamin E and Vitamin C do not serve the same function as a preservative.
🌱 FRAGRANCE – All fragrances that we use in our lotions and creams are phthalate free.
🌱 PIGMENTS AND COLORING AGENTS – In some products, a very small amount of pigments have been added to shade the final product. Generally, these are products like mica (silica) or nature-identical colors like titanium dioxide or iron oxide. Sometimes their name can be a mouthful — like fluorophlogopite but that’s just a specific white-colored mica.
