Our Hand & Body Moisturizers are formulated using Jojoba Oil as our base oil. We have also sourced several “super fruits” from Scandinavia that result in a synergistic blend that creates a very premium moisturizer. Arctic Cloudberry Seed Oil (Finland) and Arctic Lingonberry Extract (Sweden) are highly antioxidant ingredients that are excellent for skin cell regeneration and a reduction in wrinkles. Our moisturizers are blended with therapeutic grade essential oils (some are organic), several use fragrance oils and one contains an absolute oil. We use “sulfate/ paraben free preservatives” phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol in all of our hand and body moisturizers. Our moisturizers are packaged in white PET bottles and a black pump with a rectangular label attached.
The quality ingredients that go into this product include the following:
Organic jojoba oil is a botanical extract of the seed of an evergreen shrub. Technically it is not exactly an oil, but a wax ester. This wax ester is very similar to human sebum (our natural skin oil). It is extremely close to our skins natural pH and aids in the balancing of our skins oil production. The ingredient Jojoba provides all day moisturizing, and it is used in all of our hand and body moisturizers, deodorants, facial products and beard oil.
Used in the base mix of oils, coconut oil is derived from the coconut fruit. This vitamin rich oil is used in body care products for its naturally emollient (softening) and lubricating properties. This gentle oil is naturally antiseptic and antioxidant, making it a great ingredient for the skin. Hydrating and soothing make this oil a perfect addition in skin care.
Cloudberries are wild berries that grow all over Finland, but are most abundant in boggy areas around the Arctic Circle. Because of its ability to survive temperatures of -40° F, the Cloudberry is one of the few flowering plants to have spread to the farthest north. Its geographical location, with nights that are significantly colder than the days, enables Cloudberries to produce twice as much vitamin C as oranges. Cloudberry Seed oil contains large amounts of linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid (omega 6 & omega 3), vitamins A and E, and plant sterols. It strengthens skin, prevents aging and due to its antioxidant effects, protects skin from external factors. Moreover, the detoxification properties of Cloudberry Seed oil help to make the skin look brighter and more radiant. The benefits of Cloudberry seed oil have been studied in numerous independent cosmetic labs. It has been proven from investigations in independent labs in Finland to be one of the most effective antioxidants for preventing oxidation of the skins structure.
The Lingonberry is Scandinavia's most widely harvested wild berry. It grows in dry soil, especially in spruce forests and lichen-covered ground. Lingonberry is very popular as an ingredient for its beneficial effects on skin. The berry extract contains large amounts of flavonoids, moisturizing properties, phenol compounds and antioxidants. The seed oil promotes skin renewal. Antioxidants and essential fatty acids (omegas) provide the skin with important nutrition. The leaves of the Lingonberry plant contain arbutin, which has a lightening effect on skin discoloration. Lingonberry has high levels of vitamin C, which protects and brightens the skin.
Phenoxyethanol is an organic compound derived from Sage essential oil. It is one of the most widely used safe and effective preservatives in dermatological products such as skin creams. Phenoxyethanol also works as a topical antiseptic. It provides a broad spectrum anti-microbial activity against either gram-negative or gram-positive bacteria, yeasts and molds. (sulfate/ paraben free)
Caprylyl Glycol, which is probably the most effective “humectant” available today. It is naturally derived from coconut and has the unique property of protecting against microbial growth from bacteria and yeast, while giving the finished product exceptional feel. (sulfate/ paraben free)
Tea Tree essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Tea Tree plant, also known as Melaleuca. This oil is known for its antimicrobial properties. Tea Tree is naturally astringent and is excellent for acne prone skin. Tea Tree is the most medicinal essential oil that we use in our products.
An extract derived from the oat kernels. Used traditionally to reduce inflammation and calm irritated skin, naturally soothing and rich in nutrients, organic oat kernel extract is great for skin conditioning.
Borage seed oil is derived from the extracted oil of the seeds. It is extremely high in gamma linoleic acid (GLA) that is extremely beneficial to skin. It exhibits a potent anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and also is very effective in regulating water loss and protecting the skin from injury and damage. Borage seed oil is especially beneficial to people with eczema and psoriasis. Simply put, Borage seed oil is just good for your skin.
Sea Buckthorn berries come from a shrub that grows in mountainous and coastal areas of Northern Europe to Asia. The oil from these sour orange berries has been used in Russia to treat radiation burns, sunburn, and eczema. In China and India the oil has been traditionally used to relieve coughs and colds. Sea Buckthorn oil is a great source of vitamins C & E, and omega 3 oils. The orange color comes from beta-carotene, which the berries have in greater concentration than is found in pumpkin or apricots. Sea Buckthorn oil is very beneficial to the skin due to its high antioxidant level to fight free radicals that attack our skin on a daily basis.
We recommend that you apply your Hand & Body Moisturizer every day. Because of the formulation that creates a thick consistency, only a small amount will be necessary. Smooth into skin, massage gently and enjoy your soft great smelling skin. Many people use our moisturizer on the face as well as the rest of the body. The Jojoba oil base that we pride our formulation on creates a very grease-free feel to the skin. Most everyone who samples our Hand & Body Moisturizers at the Raleigh Farmers Market buy one or more bottles.
