With its creamy texture it is a delight to apply to the skin.

We use organic and fair trade shea butter which contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E & F, helping to maintain optimum skin health. Improving elasticity and abundant in fatty acids that help with collagen production, to help maintain youthful skin and with its mild SPF (thought to range from 4-6 SPF, naturally), anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce skin irritation shea butter is a true skin healer. Shea butter not only works on the surface of the skin, creating a protective barrier but it also penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of the skin to heal within.
Cocoa butter is a solid-at-room-temperature butter, that is extracted from the cacao bean, which grows on the cacao tree. The cacao pod is a large, gourd-shaped fruit; inside the pod are 30 to 40 cocoa seeds. These seeds are dried, roasted, and pressed and the fat is then extracted from the beans giving us this beautiful cocoa butter. That fat is what we know as cocoa ‘butter’. What is left over from this process is ground down to become cacao powder. We’ve chosen to use cocoa butter in our lip balms as a key ingredient due to its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture. Anti-oxidant rich, free radical fighting & anti-aging vitamin E, cocoa butter is rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The delicately blended balance of organic orange and grapefruit essential oils whispers to the luxury you’ll feel when you apply this lovingly hand poured lip balm.
