Organic Body Care Products

It all started with soaps.  Seems like a lifetime ago in a little garage below a little house at the top of the Oakland Hills I was happily making soaps when I began to take note of toxic skincare products being made by large commercial, and surprisingly, small scale skincare makers.

Nasty ingredients everywhere and even more ridiculous formulations using good ingredients. Ingredient labels have become an art in misdirection. Omissions. Deceptive disclosures. What a mess.

It was my customers. They all began requesting more and more variety of clean, organic naturally produced body care and face care products. Creams, lotions, deodorants, masks, serums and on and on.

And so here we are.

Organic Skin Lotion

$20.00

This all natural, vegan, and raw body lotion is very similar to our Deep Hydration Face Cream with adjusted viscosity so it's easily pumped from a bottle. Like all of my products, this lotion is carefully blended by hand at just a few degrees above body temperature to assure the integrity of the naturally therapeutic ingredients. Designed to absorb quickly into your skin; nobody likes standing around cold and naked waiting for their lotion to absorb.

Your whole body will be as soft as your face. 

Perfect for morning, afternoon, or evening. On your sink, in your car, on your desk.

I love this lotion. You will too.

A Few Words On Ingredients:

Obviously, pristine super quality ingredients are very important. Every constituent of a skincare product should be either organic or wildcrafted; ours are. Ingredients considered separately should all be what skin readily considers a nutrient source and non threatening; ours are. And lastly formulating an ideal skincare product is a lot more than just randomly assembling a list of good ingredients, it's understanding the secondary and sometimes tertiary interactions and achieving the ideal ratios, we do.

Moisturizing Body Wash

$15.00

We hand-craft our body wash with organic, natural and nontoxic ingredients. We don't add anything synthetic, this liquid soap is all natural, vegan and hydrating. Moisturizing and feels good; leaving your skin soft and nourished. Everywhere. Think of our Body Wash as a liquid version of our bar soap. We adjust the pH with a very nice collection of therapeutic oils and herbs, so our body wash will not dry your skin like many liquid soaps.

Like our Delicate Facial Cleanser, this Body Wash is formulated without any synthetic binders, so it requires a little shake before each application. We reccomend to apply the soap to your skin using your hand or a wash cloth.

Smells magnificent.

Natural Deodorant

Natural Deodorant

$15.00

No zinc. No aluminum. No Zinc. No toxins. Nothing synthetic. Nothing with tiny particles to clog pours. 

And absolutely none of the extremely unhealthy synthetic ingredients designed to stop perspiration. Perspiration is good and that's not what gets stinky anyway, unless you've been eating asparagus or lots of garlic, and that's not really all that bad.

Our Natural Deodorant simply inhibits the growth of stinky producing bacteria with an organic enzymic liquid derived from the skins of Red Radish Root. Suspended in our pure organic Rose Water with a tiny touch of 100% Pure Clary Sage Essential Oil. 

Into your freshly cleansed underarms, a few spritzes and you'll be on your way. Now some folks may need a couple of reinforcing spritzes at the end of the day so we recommend you have an extra bottle on hand. We should also mention it feels great on your skin.  Hooray!

Non Metalic Organic Sun Screen

$27.00

Yes it is absolutely possible to protect your skin from the sun without toxic synthetic chemicals, harsh metals or anything harmful. Period.       
No Zinc.* No Titanium. No Copper. No Parabens.
No Endocrine Disruption.
No Synthetic Ingredients. No Waxes.
No PABA. No Petrochemical Derivatives.                                                   
Our organic sun screen relies upon the absorption characteristics of Red Raspberry Seed Oil to naturally and safely screen more than 98% UVA and UVB. It would take an SPF rating of at least 35 to match this performance.                                                                                              
So while extremely respectable protection from the sun's harmful radiations without any of the very harmful ingredients found in commercial sunblocks; Red Raspberry Seed Oil does not carry an FDA rating for SPF.

For Best Results: apply a thin application to exposed skin every two hours, after swimming, or working out (perspiration weakens the protection). This is especially true for playing children.                              
Note: Red Raspberry Seed Oil is high in linoleic fatty acids and as such is absolutely wonderful for your skin!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  1.  Why is there a range in SPF? To answer this you have to understand how the SPF rating system works. SPF makes an assumption about how long someone can stay in the sun without getting burned based on the percentage of UVB rays blocked, absorbed or deflected by a sun screen or sun block. SPF 30 protects against 97% of UVB rays and SPF 50 protects against 98% of UVB rays. The difference is one percentage of UVB rays. 
  2. So does it have UVA and UVB protection? Yes! Raspberry Seed Oil has almost equal UVA and UVB protection. 
  3. How often should I reapply? We want your first experience to be a really good one! So we recommend that for your first time you set a timer and reapply every half hour. This way you're sure not to get burnt. But depending on how much you sweat, if you're exposing yourself to water or completely dry, and how strong the sun is you can reapply every half hour to two hours. 
  4. Is it safe for kids? Yes, there's really nothing safer. The only problem is that kids are very active and they tend to sweat which interferes with Raspberry Seed Oil's ability to absorb and deflect the sun. So only use on kids if you are able to reapply every half hour.
  5. Can I exercise with it on? Yes, but sweat interferes with the absorption capability (as mentioned above) so reapply every half hour.
  6. What does it smell like? It smells like Raspberry Seed Oil. We do absolutely nothing to alter the smell. To some people with very sensitive noses it smells a bit fishy. But most people don't notice it much. The good news is that if you do have a strong sense of scent, it absorbs quickly and the scent doesn't linger. 
  7. Can I apply it over my make-up? Yes, absolutely. Keep in mind that it's an oil so the best way to apply is first squirt it onto your hands and rub them together. Then pat your hands onto your face. This way you won't get a huge oily spot on your cheek. This is also the best way to reapply throughout the day without disturbing your make-up.
  8. I have acne will it make me break out? Not at all! Raspberry Seed Oil has a very high profile of Linoleic Fatty Acid which actually dissolves sebum (sebum is the oil your skin naturally produces but when over produced it clogs your pores causing pimples and acne). Raspberry Seed Oil is so nourishing that we often recommend it as a pre-cleansing oil for people with dry or dull skin.
  9. Can you make it into a lotion? Unfortunately no. In order to make a lotion we would have to dilute the oil with water lowering the SPF considerably.
  10. What is the shelf life of Raspberry Seed Oil? Raspberry Seed Oil is a very stable oil and you could use it many years after you bought it and be fine, but we've decided to be very conservative and claim a two year shelf life.

Hand Cream

$18.00

We've found the perfect balance between a luxuriously thick and fast-absorbing cream designed to leave your hands velvety soft, deeply hydrated. Never greasy or sticky.  Just moments after applying our hand cream you'll grip your coffee cup both with confidence and with sensually soft hands. 

It's also wonderful to keep your cuticles moisturized and healthy.

We prefer to leave our products unscented to reflect the natural scents of the ingredients, but we've had so many requests for a lavender hand cream that we couldn't resist adding a touch of Bulgarian Lavender. So now we have two options: Blissfully Unscented and Lavender, both come in a 4oz glass jar.

A note on scent: we consider synthetic fragrances toxic and so when we do offer a scented product you can rest assured the scent is from 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. So, if you're in a fragrance-free work environment, our subtle Lavender Hand Cream will not trigger a scent alarm. Most folks who suffer from fragrance-induced reactions are reacting to the highly toxic ingredients found in all synthetic fragrances. 

So. We're extremely picky about what we use to make our products. Fact is very ingredient we use in any of our products is a nutrient for your skin. Food for your skin. Yum!

Organic Foot Cream

$18.00

This organic, vegan and natural foot cream is an extraordinary moisturizer for dry feet and feet suffering from athletes foot. And just excellent for diabetics. 

Like many of our products there is a personal story behind this cream.

I have diabetes and like all diabetics have to be very careful with my feet to avoid issues with over abundance of moisture and fungus. Frustrated with all the over the counter remedies full of stinging alcohol and nasty and synthetic anti bacterial and anti fungal additives, I decided to make the perfect foot cream. It's formulated with a collection of natural deep penetrating oils and herbals designed to keep feet healthy with increased circulation, along with three natural, broad spectrum anti-bacterial and anti fungal compounds.

The cream absorbs completely into your feet within 10 minutes leaving your feet soft and silky. Non greasy. Very nice.

Now, you don't have to have diabetes to consider this cream! It's for everyone who'd like to keep their feet deliciously hydrated, wonderfully soft and healthy. I use it every day.

Tip: Find a nice comfortable place where you can put your feet up, massage the cream into your feet and give it ten minutes to absorb. If you put your socks on before the 10 minutes are over you will be nourishing your socks :

Our Skin Butter is by far the richest moisturizer we make. Fluffy and light. Rich! Profound in its simplicity; Argan, Kukui and Avocado oils whipped over a couple of days into a silky, delicate mouse.

An elegant moisturizer for people with large or small areas of dry skin. Anywhere and everywhere. Anytime. 

Eczema, Psoriasis or Dermatitis. Just wonderful.  While it won't cure the condition, it will help with the itching and the scaliness.

Pregnant women find enormous relief from itching and stretch marks.

Swimmers, desert or high mountain dwellers, and folks who just prefer a richer moisturization are some of our most devoted customers. 

A little goes a long way. Absolutely non greasy. And vastly superior to Shea Butter.

While this is not a product we ever thought we'd make, one of our customers requested an organic natural and absolutely non-toxic personal lubricant. An interesting thought. So we made enough to give samples to a few friends and customers and to say it went over well, is, well, the understatement of the century. 

One of our customers described the experience as having "a Tantric Moment".

Apparently Cacao Butter is an amazing Aphrodisiac. 

Another customer kept coming back for more, asking for the "Holy Cacao" and the name stuck!
