INGREDIENTS

Tri filtered water, extra virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, emulsifying wax, vegetable glycerin, stearic acid, arctic cloudberry seed oil, arctic lingonberry extract, geranium and grapefruit essential oils, green tea extract, phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol

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

Jojoba (pronounced ho-HO-ba) oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree (Simmondsia chinenis). Technically it is not actually an oil, but rather what is called a wax ester. Why do we care? Because out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). It is theorized that applying jojoba to the skin can “trick” the skin into thinking it is producing enough oil, thus balancing oil production. The bottom line for acne-prone people is that jojoba oil is non-comedogenic so you can use it without fear. Jojoba provides all day moisturization, jojoba oil doesn't evaporate like water based moisturizers can.

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut 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.

Arctic Cloudberry Seed Oil

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.

Arctic Lingonberry Extract

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 (preservative)

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 (preservative)

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)

Red Grapefruit Essential Oil

Cold pressed from the peel of the Grapefruit, this essential oil has a light and fresh aroma. Naturally astringent, it is toning and revitalizing to the skin. High in antioxidants and vitamin C, Grapefruit has been known to help prevent certain types of cancer, fight the common cold and even repair DNA. This light fresh scent is a favorite of many.

Geranium Essential Oil

This essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the Rose Geranium plant. It has a gentle floral scent with a minty, fresh finish. Geranium essential oil has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Used in skin care, it can help balance the function of the oil glands and has cellular regenerating properties.

Green Tea Extract

Green Tea Extract is derived from the leaves of the “Camellia Sinensis” plant. Green Tea Extract is naturally rich in antioxidants, which has a cell-protecting function as well. It's a strong antioxidant effect that protects the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals. Green Tea Extract is a good anti-inflammatory agent thereby reducing inflammation in the skin, and most importantly having an inhibitory action on collagenase (a collagen-reducing enzyme that breaks down collagen). Since Green Tea Extract helps to inhibit collagenase, the topical use of Green Tea helps to promote the health and quantity of collagen, thereby maintaining a firm and elastic skin. In one clinical study is was shown that the skin had measurably more elastic tissue content after continuous application of a product containing Green Tea Extract.

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.
