Prickly Pear Seed Oil //
Also known as barberry fig oil, this luxurious and nutrient-dense super oil has a higher vitamin E (a youth preserving antioxidant) content than any other oil on the market. This oil also contains vitamin K (which has shown to brighten the skin), belatains (a super-antioxidant), and essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid (omega-6). Prickly pear oil is easily absorbed into the skin, protects against free radicals, refines the skin's texture, helps prevent premature aging, provides nutrients, and brightens a complexion.
Cupuacu Butter //
A rare butter derived from the seeds of the Cupuacu tree fruit. It has the amazing ability to attract 240% more water than other butters, making it a very effective hydrator and moisturizer. Easily absorbed by the skin, it makes skin supple, soft and more elastic.
Rosehip Oil //
This unique oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6 and 9 which provide regenerative properties, as well as trans-retinoic acid (a cousin of vitamin A) which helps prevent premature aging. This oil absorbs into the skin quickly and is excellent for dry skin. It is known to help fade scars, help repair damaged tissue, increase cell turnover, and for its regenerative properties.
Sea Buckthorn Oil //
This cold pressed oil has a deep amber color because of its rich content of the anti-oxidant beta-carotene (it contains more than pumpkin!). It is also loaded with skin-loving/free radical fighting compounds such as vitamin A, C, E, fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6, 9, the very rare Omega 7, phytosterols, and flavonoids. Some research has shown that sea buckthorn can help reduce sebum production, reduce the occurrence of break outs, speed up healing, and promote healthy skin.
A naturally occurring substance that is present in human cells. It protects the cell and is a component of our body's production of energy. As we age, our body produces less CoQ10 which in turn decreases collagen production and the skin's ability to regenerate itself. Studies have shown that topically applied CoQ10 may have an effect on the appearance of wrinkles, reduce UV damage, stimulate collagen production, and help prevent skin damage. CoQ10 benefits also include antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects. Our CoQ10 is vegan and non-GMO.
Vitamin C //
We use an oil soluble and stable version of Vitamin C (versus absorbic acid) called ascorbyl palmitate. This form of vitamin C is readily absorbed into the skin, immediately delivering the multiple benefits of this vitamin deep with the skin. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help improve elasticity by promoting collagen production, prevent breakouts, clarify a complexion, fade discoloration and reduce inflammation. Our vitamin C is vegan.
Immortelle essential oil //
Helichrysum, also known as immortelle or everlasting, is a small yellow flower with amazing healing and regenerative properties. It gets its name from the fact that the blooms never wilt! The essential oil is a powerful healer and has cell regenerative properties. Used in synergy with blue chamomile, it creates a powerhouse skin healing combo, great for diminishing redness and speeding the healing of blemishes. This is a wonderful anti-aging and healing ingredient.
Turmeric Extract //
The vibrant orange root of turmeric is naturally high in curcumin, a potent antioxidant. The root is also well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is a great option for sensitive skin to help alleviate redness, irritation and break outs, but also helps prevent premature aging.
Pomegranate oil //
Useful for cell regeneration, anti-aging, and deep nourishment. Pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, and unique components such as ellagic acid which helps prevent UV damage and puninic acid (omega-5) which helps reduce skin inflammation and prevents moisture loss. Pomegranate oil has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin to nourish, fight free radicals that cause aging and may also help improve the skin's texture.

Note: Sea buckthorn oil is a magical oil, but it’s deep orange hue can stain fabrics. We recommend letting this balm sink in for at least 15 minutes before going to bed or face planting on a pillow ;) Don’t worry, this balm will not stain the skin.Although we recommend using this balm at night because of its orange hue, it is perfectly safe to use during the day if you choose.
(note: our jar is taller than most small jars that contain balms. This may give the appearance of being smaller since it is less wide, but it contains a full and long lasting 1 oz of this luxurious balm).
