Our Ingredients


We want what is best for your skin and the earth and that is why we use cruelty free, organic, vegan, raw, and unrefined ingredients. 

By using unrefined ingredients, each product has the highest nutrient content possible. Each product has undergone minimal processing, so we can ensure that you will have the cleanest, all natural ingredients for your skin!

*With our ingredients being unrefined, the scent will be stronger. Shea Butter will have a nutty scent, while Cocoa will have a chocolate scent.* 

Never will any of our products be tested on animals. We believe never under any circumstances should products be tested on animals. This is a practice that needs to end and that is why one of our charities of choice is an organization to help end animal testing and find other ethical alternatives.

     Cocoa Butter 

    Cocoa butter has a great amount of vitamin E, Fatty Acids, and skin healing properties. 

    • Contains a high amount of fatty acids that are the best for hydrating the skin. The fat allows the butter to create a barrier on your skin that holds in moisture and prevents your skin from becoming flaky and dry! 
    • Cocoa butter has skin healing properties. The moisture content and richness of the butter eases itching and helps the skin heal after a flare up from eczema, psoriasis, and more.  

    Cocoa butter can protect against sun damage. The phytochemicals in cocoa butter can help protect you from harmful UV, so you can enjoy your long day at the beach with no worries!

     Shea Butter 

    Shea Butter has fatty acids, is an anti-inflammatory, and antioxidants that are gold for your skin. 

    • fatty acids that get absorbed into your skin. These oils act as a “refatting” agent to restore your moisturized skin. It holds the moisture inside of your body, so you can be soft and moisturized for good! 
    • The anti-inflammatory properties of shea butter makes inflammatory cells slow their production, which can minimize irritation caused by environmental factors or skin conditions. 
    • Antioxidant and holds a large amount of Vitamin A and E that help with anti-aging.
