About our Ingredients:
All of our ingredients are carefully chosen for safety and effectiveness. We only buy from established suppliers that we have thoroughly researched and find to be reliable and honest. We don't believe in putting a drop or two of an exotic ingredient for label appeal, we carefully create the finest synergy of ingredients for your skin. While our products aren't only for use in our dry Arizona locale, all of our products are tested (by humans, not animals) in Arizona to provide optimal results in our dry Sonoran desert environment.
Here is more about some of our featured ingredients:
Olive oil: We believe that quite simply olive oil based soaps are the finest soaps on Earth, which is why all of our soaps contain a generous amount of olive oil. Olive oil soaps have been considered the finest soaps from around the world for hundreds of years. Olive oil provides gentle cleansing while conditioning the skin and attracting moisture.
Coconut oil: Coconut oil adds hardness and big, fluffy bubbles to our soap.
Avocado oil: Avocado oil is high in vitamins A, D and E, and makes our soap extra conditioning and non-drying.
Shea butter: Shea butter is one of our all around favorite ingredients, giving our soaps a creamy feel while ensuring that our soaps leave the skin feeling conditioned and never dry. For our soaps we have chosen to use the finest unrefined, natural shea butter from Ghana.
Cocoa Butter: Cocoa butter acts as an emollient on the skin, while adding hardness to the soap to ensure that our soaps are long lasting in the shower.
Castor Oil: Castor oil is high in ricinoleic acid, a humectant that draws moisture into the skin. Castor oil also stabilizes the lather, making the fluffy bubbles longer lasting.
Organic Jojoba Oil: Our jojoba oil is organically grown right here in Arizona! Jojoba is a liquid wax that is chemically similar to the sebum produced naturally by our bodies to lubricate and protect our skin. Jojoba oil penetrates the outer layers of the skin to provide long lasting moisture that reaches deep into our skin. We use organic jojoba in our lotion and cuticle balm for long lasting effect.
Shea Butter: Nourishing and highly moisturizing we love shea butter in our body butters, face cream and lotions. While shea is a thick butter it is also non-comedogenic, making it an ideal choice for all around skin care uses. For our lotions and face cream we use organic refined shea butter that is odor free.
Organic Sunflower Oil: Sunflower oil is a lightweight oil that leaves the skin feeling moisturized but never greasy. Sunflower oil works well for all skin types and is perfect solution for skincare products that are designed to hydrate without a heavy feeling.
