Starting with the first batch of sunscreen mixed in the family kitchen, our skincare products use all natural ingredients to protect the skin and feed it the nourishment it needs. Because every ingredient comes from nature, all our organic skincare products are safe for people and the planet. And if you’re wondering about those long names in parenthesis after some ingredients, don’t worry! They’re based on the ingredient’s scientific name and are required on cosmetic packaging. We included them so you know what to look for.

Vanilla Bean Extract (Vanilla Planifolia)

Warm, sweet and sensual, vanilla has been touted as a love potion, intimately linked with romance and desire since the early Aztec days. Loved by most, the scent is known to boost mood and trigger happy memories. In aromatherapy, the familiar scent is used to heighten mood and reduce stress. Vanilla absolute is often used as a deodorizer, in part due to its pleasing aroma, but also because of its purported ability to kill the bacteria that causes the odors. Ours is organic.

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)

Studies show vitamin B3 dramatically reduces the appearance of dark spots. It has a long history of safe use in skincare and offers the wrinkle-reducing power of retinol, without the risk of retinoid dermatitis.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol)

A strong antioxidant, vitamin E also hydrates and moisturizes the skin. Its antioxidant properties help protect the skin from oxidative stress. It does the same for oils, and can increase their shelf life by inhibiting oxidation. Our vitamin E is distilled and derived from rosemary.
