100% Grass Fed, Grass Finished Tallow
Grass-fed, grass-finished tallow is a non-comedogenic, nutrient dense moisturizer that is extraordinarily compatible with our skin due to its chemical similarity to our skin's natural oils (aka sebum). Tallow won't clog pores or compete for space thanks to its biocompatible fatty acid composition. Tallow contains vitamins A, D, E, & K, and high concentrations of oleic, palmitic, stearic, and conjugated linoleic acids. These fatty acids have moisturizing, hydrating, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Raw Wildflower Honey
Our Raw Wildflower Honey is sourced locally and contains a blend of coastal, urban, and rural honey. The wide variety of wildflowers used by the bees adds to the chemical diversity of the honey, and the blend of geographic regions takes the floral diversity and chemical complexity to the next level. As a natural humectant and emollient, wildflower honey helps repair, soften, and retain moisture in the skin. As a natural anti-inflammatory, wildflower honey calms irritated skin, especially hormone-imbalanced skin. With the exception of Manuka honey, Wildflower honey possesses the strongest antimicrobial qualities because of its numerous active compounds like the peptide Def-1, an enzyme called lysozyme, and hydrogen peroxide. Wildflower honey has been shown to be more effective in promoting wound healing than conventional wound dressings even in wounds infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria like MRSA. Raw Wildflower honey is perfect for all types of skin from severely dry and delicate, to overly oily and blemish-prone – even in cases of autoimmune skin disorders like eczema or psoriasis.
Our everyday balm uses only Golden Jojoba oil, which is cold pressed and unrefined to preserve the chemical compounds that give this popular skincare ingredient its exceptional properties. As a noncomedogenic humectant, emollient, and occlusive, Jojoba oil is a moisturizing marvel for all types of skin – it not only hydrates the skin, but balances, repairs, and protects without clogging the pores. The chemical makeup of Jojoba oil is remarkably similar to sebum, the oil your skin naturally produces, which allows the body to readily make use of it. The body uses Jojoba oil to increase or decrease sebum production, increase collagen synthesis, replenish ceramides, and restore the skin’s natural barriers. Jojoba oil is safe for all skin types and contains even more beneficial compounds like antimicrobial iodine, anti-inflammatory vitamin E, and antioxidant vitamin B complex.
Calendula oil is extracted from the petals of marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis), which are not to be confused with garden marigolds (Marigold Tagetes). This oil has demonstrated antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties thanks to powerful flavonoids, polyphenols, and triterpenoids, most notably faradol. These qualities make Calendula highly desirable for treating anything from burns, bruises, and cuts, to eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis. Calendula has analgesic properties on par with topical NSAIDs like trolamine, and proven benefits to wound recovery time, redness, swelling, and bruising. Additionally, Calendula helps eliminate oxidative stress, increase collagen production, reduce appearance of scars, and repair photo-damage.
Unlike our Everyday Skin Balm and Pain Relief Balm, our lip balm utilizes Beeswax, a time-honored lip balm ingredient. Acting as a protective, emollient, and humectant, Beeswax is a champion of lip care – not to mention its ability to enhance the other ingredients! Beeswax helps hydrate the skin, but also forms a protective barrier against environmental elements without stifling the skin.
Beeswax's unique composition closely resonates with the skin's own lipids, permitting your lips to make the most of its benefits. This helps to maintain a healthy balance of moisture, bolstering the lips' natural defenses and ensuring they remain soft, supple, and nourished, regardless of the season or weather conditions.
Boasting an impressive ability to lock in moisture, Beeswax provides a long-lasting protective seal that keeps your lips hydrated and helps prevent them from drying or chapping. Its high content of natural esters and fatty acids contribute to its excellent emollient properties, ensuring smooth, plump, and soft lips.
Moreover, Beeswax is rich in Vitamin A, known for its ability to support cell reconstruction and health. This, coupled with its anti-inflammatory properties, makes Beeswax an exceptional ingredient for managing and soothing any lip discomfort, from dryness to cracking.
Safe for all, Beeswax is a gentle yet powerful lip care ingredient, cherished for its ability to nourish, protect, and restore your lips' natural beauty. Its use provides an effective shield against the elements, ensuring your lips always feel as good as they look.
Rosehip Oil, exclusive to our lip balms, is cold-pressed and unrefined to conserve the natural compounds that impart its remarkable properties. Serving as a potent source of hydration, nourishment, and repair, Rosehip oil works wonders for all parts of the body - but especially the lips!
Rich in essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids, Rosehip oil absorbs easily, imparting a velvety texture and protecting lips from drying or cracking.
Rosehip oil is known for its astounding ability to promote collagen synthesis and accelerate skin cell turnover, which keeps the lips healthy, soft, and supple. Its high content of beta-carotene and lycopene, alongside other carotenoids, gives it notable antioxidative properties, helping neutralize harmful free radicals and protect the lips from aging and drying.
