Magical Babassu Face Oil
Magical Babassu Face Oil is a creamy, velveteen, light-feel Face Oil that is all about hydrating, softening, and smoothing the skin without the heavy or oily feel of some richer, thicker face oils meant for drier or more mature skin types. We recommend this oil as your first choice among the products for stubbornly dry or rough facial skin for all ages.
The scent of this magical babassu face oil comes foremost from the un-deodorized, virgin babassu oil, which is a little nutty and earthy. Then, softer, sweet florals have been added in a small amount: forest-honey-like, delicate mimosa, and aquatic, fresh pink lotus (I take a whiff of my properly diluted pink lotus and want to swoon).
Tobacco absolute derived from the leaves and processed to be nicotine free is a highly praised ingredient in perfumery, as it lends a rich, complex, leathery, moist-sweet natural fragrance element that has, in my experience, grounding aromatherapy benefits; it makes one’s spirit feel full and complete. Haitian vetiver is a root whose scent I would describe as “dry bark and roots” (in a good way). Calming to the spirit, the vetiver anchors the elusive, more fleeting scents of pink lotus and mimosa.
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.Browse All Products
