About the ingredients:
Fractionated coconut oil is coconut oil that has had the long-chain fatty acids removed via hydrolysis and steam distillation. This means it can moisturize without clogging pores and stay liquid at cold temperatures. It is a feather-light emollient that softens and hydrates dry skin while increasing sparkle distribution. It readily absorbs into the skin, leaving it silky and smooth without a greasy residue.
Lavender strengthens the nervous system and studies have shown that it has anti-inflammatory and sedative effects. This is due to one of its major constituents, linalool. Its name comes from the Latin lavare, meaning “to wash,” as the Romans used the blossoms to scent their bath water. It is said to be an aphrodisiac for men.
Roses have been valued for their beauty and perfume for thousands of years. Because rose oil deteriorates rapidly with exposure to sun and wind, the content is highest on the first morning when the flower opens. Rose has a toning and balancing effect on the skin and lends its romantic, aphrodisiac scent to this product.
Jojoba oil is a botanical extract of the seed of the jojoba tree. Technically it is not actually an oil, but what is called a wax ester. Out of all of the compounds in nature, this wax ester is the most similar to human skin oil (sebum). It helps to strengthen and bolster the skin’s cellular matrix and can help prevent the formation of deep wrinkles. Studies have shown that it inhibits the effects of UV exposure on collagen expression, which gives it its anti-aging reputation. It’s rich in vitamin E, zinc, iodine, and other nourishing antioxidants, and serves as a humectant that draws water to the skin and is readily absorbed.
Synthetic Mica is chosen for the shimmer and sparkle of this product because of the use of child labor in mica mines (over 75% of mica is mined with child labor) and the difficulty in tracing the supply chain. It is nature identical, biodegradable, plastic free and not harmful to watersheds.
Vitamin E oil is a powerful antioxidant. It is essential for healthy skin growth, repair of wear and tear on the skin, keeping skin smooth, protecting it and preventing premature aging. It is nourishing for all skin types and prolongs the shelf life of the product.
Ylang ylang, Geranium and Lavender essential oils are added for an extragalactic scent.
