Healthy skin is beautiful skin and this product will repair damage and maintain skin health for long-term benefits rather than the short-term, short-lived plumping achieved with water-based products.
Naturally free of artificial fragrance and colour. By leaving out the water we can also avoid all antimicrobial preservatives (like parabens and phenoxyethanol) and emulsifiers (which play havoc with the skin's protective outer layer, the stratum corneum).
You get 100% active ingredients bursting with natural emollients, vitamins, antioxidants that fight the root causes of skin ageing.
The main causes of skin ageing are excessive free radical damage caused by exposure to the sun and pollutants and skin dehydration. This natural body butter addresses both issues with a rich blend of tropical and essential oils.
We have chosen natural oils that are easily absorbed right into the deepest layers of the epidermis. Used correctly (sparingly) you will find this 100% oil product absorbs remarkably quickly, leaving no greasy residue, and you will find a conveniently small jar lasts a very long time and is great value for money.
Dry skin, and consequent premature ageing are caused by a failure of the skins natural, lipid-rich, outer layer (The Stratum Corneum) which should prevent excessive moisture escaping.
Dry skin sags, wrinkles and eventually cracks allowing further moisture loss and invasion by pathogens. Successful moisturising is predominately concerned with repairing and maintaining this layer so that moisture drawn from the lower layers stays within the skin. Simply adding moisture from the outside is futile and even counter-productive. The natural fatty acids occurring in all the base ingredients of this body butter (which make up 98% of the product) are the very same natural lipids found in the skin. They are readily accepted by your skin and will repair and maintain the Stratum Corneum without upsetting it's natural balance.
This natural body butter does NOT contain a sunscreen, it does, however, contain tropical oils that have evolved to be extraordinarily sun stable by way of their high antioxidant content. These antioxidants will boost your skin's natural sun protection systems which limit the suns ageing effect. Antioxidants neutralise the damaging free radical scavenger cells created by exposure to UV rays and pollutants.
The blend of essential oils in this product not only smells divine but balances sebum and promotes good circulation helping skin function correctly. We also include our home grown Calendula extract which will penetrate deep into the dermis promoting collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid cell regeneration and speed healing of any minor inflammations.
Optimising purity and value
We insist on 100% natural ingredients never treated with heat or solvents, but not always 100% organic. We carefully choose organic ingredients when the benefits justify the cost. This is a very deliberate decision which enables us to deliver the purest skin care at the best price. For further explanation of this see our organic vs natural page.

This product may melt if shipped to very hot climates, This will not affect the efficacy of the product but it will affect it's texture. The product can be reset by placing in a refrigerator. We cannot replace or refund products that melt during shipping.
