Deeply nourishing and conditioning beard oil.
Imagine yourself in a forest, the scent of the fir and cypress comes alive and starts dancing with the seductive smoke of the campfire . As you brush needles away, a hush of sandalwood and sweet orange is rounded out with the sweet aroma of vetiver and marjoram.
Camellia Seed Oil, also known as tsubaki oil has been used in Japan for skincare for thousands of years, for its conditioning, protective, ability to repair and help with scarring. It is also an excellent 'dry' and astringent oil very well suited for all skin types, including oily or acne-prone skin.
Rice Bran Oil is also non-greasy, nourishing, provides great shine and supports hair growth.
Ingredients: Rice Bran Oil, Camellia OIl, vitamin E, essential oils of Fir, Cypress, Vetiver, Marjoram, Amyris Sandalwood and Sweet Orange.
Strawberry + Lavender Makeup Remover
for healthy skin, eyes & lashes.
Suitable for all skin types, especially dry/mature skin
Benefits: Removes eye and facial makeup & dirt. Moisturizing, soothing, skin-balancing, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and promotes optimal eyelash health. This is more than just a makeup remover: it provides a highly concentrated treatment to your face, leaving it deeply nourished and velvety soft. Non-greasy!
Ingredients: Jojoba, Castor, calendula-infused Apricot, Avocado, and Argan oils, strawberry extract, vitamin E, essential oils of lavender, frankincense & geranium.
Use: Using firm and circular motions, slowly massage a quarter size amount onto your DRY face and eyelids, including the eyelash roots. Soak a washcloth in hot water, wring it, and place on your face until it cools. Wipe off. Rinse washcloth & repeat last step 1-2 times. Use 2-3 times per week. The skin will need to adjust and adapt to this method, as it is essentially unblocking the pores and allowing fresh natural skin oils to flow through, so increased oil flow may be present at first. This will quickly regulate itself and result and clear, glowing and naturally moisturized skin.
*Disclaimer: it may take your face one week to adapt.
“You can’t, even for a million dollars, get a drug for the coronavirus - but your grandmother’s soap kills it…” from The Guardian
1. COVID-19, SOAP & DRY HANDS
Wash your Hands. It’s one of the best ways to prevent Covid-19.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about which of our many soaps we recommend, and if soaps with anti-bacterial/anti-microbial herbs or essential oils are better. As much as we love them, essential oils and herbs have not been proven to be effective against Covid-19. The answer is ANY of our soaps and proper hand-washing will work to kill the virus.
Are your hands terribly dry from the constant hand-washing? Our soaps have the added benefit of providing deep nourishment, moisturizing, and reparative benefits. For dry skin we especially recommend our Nourishing and Moisturizing Soaps collection
2. DIY HAND SANITIZERS, the good the bad and the ugly.
In the current frenzy where it’s nearly impossible to find alcohol-based hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, gels or creams, there are a lot of DIY recipes on the internet. Most of them won’t work, and they will trick you into a false sense of safety.
Please, DO NOT attempt to make your own hand-sanitizer!
We’ve done a lot of research looking at multiple articles by experts in the field, and they all agree that unless you are a chemist or pharmacist, your final product will not be guaranteed to kill the virus. There is TOO MUCH at stake: health and potentially life itself, for us to gamble with this.
So, why don’t DIY hand-sanitizers typically work? For multiple reasons. Here are the key points to know: hand-sanitizers need to contain at least 65-95% alcohol, and to be in contact with your skin for at least 60 seconds to reliably inactivate the coronavirus. Not all alcohols are made equal (drinking alcohol is not strong enough, some ethanol and very high percentage alcohols actually do not work!), alcohol evaporates very quickly, and aloe vera gel will disintegrate when mixed with 65% alcohol, unless it is thickened with polymers which you cannot make or get as a DIYer.
Basically, just stick with soap as much as possible, and when you are out and about, refrain from touching your face, keep your social distance and only use commercially made hand-sanitizers.
