Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer

$44.00$70.00

Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer is an irresistible guava-plus-citrus scent that feels like applying yellow dewdrops that are fully charged with unrefined, whole-food (not isolated or factory-produced “nature identical”) nutrients from the superfood buriti, pequi, and moringa oils.

The idea was to create a formula with that would be truly nourishing, yet ultra light and breathable at the same time, to deliver lots of moisture without a waxy or overly emollient feel. This format of Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer is very appealing for the times when the skin is dehydrated but you don’t want oil or an emulsion (lotion or cream) on your face because you prefer a lighter feel. By light, we don’t mean “just a little bit effective”: this moisturizer is highly effective in what it is designed to do; you will be amazed by how much and how quickly your skin can absorb in each single application.

The Portuguese name for this product is intended to draw attention to the Cerrado area in Brazil, as this beautiful savanna is considered the biologically richest savanna in the world by the Word Wide Fund of Nature. Earthwise Beauty wants to shine a spotlight on areas of the world that are overlooked or insufficiently known about by the Western world, and that need our attention to protect their natural environment and biodiversity.

To support the indigenous populations of these regions so that their livelihoods will be rewarded and appreciated and their culture will be respected and protected. To that end, they choose fair trade ingredients from these regions, extracted sustainably by small cooperatives using their traditional tools of choice, and  have chosen some of their product names and designs to provoke  customers’ curiosity about these areas, their natural bounty, and their peoples.

The Brand

Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.

Ingredients

Cold-press whole-leaf Aloe barbadensis leaf juice*, cold-press unrefined Caryocar braziliensis (pequi) fruit oil†, cold-press unrefined Mauritia flexuosa (buriti) fruit oil†, cold-press unrefined Moringa oleifera seed oil† or *, Sambucus nigra (elderberry) fruit extract, polysorbate 20 (naturally derived), tocopherol (vit. E from non-GMO sunflowers), potassium sorbate (natural food-grade preservative), xanthan gum, ascorbic acid (vit. C), citric acid.

*Certified organic. †Responsibly wildcrafted.

Aloe certified by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC) for purity and content.

Our polysorbate 20 is carefully sourced and naturally derived (from cornstarch). According to the MSDS sheet (Material Safety Data Sheet) we received from the manufacturer, there are no impurities or hazardous components in this ingredient. We use polysorbate 20 in minimal amounts (0.5–1.5%) to emulsify essential oils and carrier oils into an aloe base. Emulsifying of essential oils is important to prevent “pockets” of essential oils in a product, which could potentially be sensitizing. We are aware of recent concerns over the purity of polysorbates available on the market and are currently testing other naturally derived alternatives.

Certified cruelty free, vegan, handcrafted, small batch, no fragrance added.
