In the northeast, where our business is based, we just transitioned from August hot and humid 80-degree temperatures to 40-degree crisp mornings in September.  Fall is definitely here and has a direct impact on our skin.  It is very important to think about which body soaps and scrubs are most beneficial to help nourish our skin and bodies during these cooler months. 

Eucalyptus Soap 

Eucalyptus is an evergreen tree, native to Australia, and now grown all over the world  It is mainly used for its medicinal purposes.  Eucalyptus has a gum-infused bark, long stems, and circular leaves. Eucalyptus is known to be high in antioxidants, relieves cold symptoms, treats dry skin, reduces pain, promotes relaxation, helps to keep your teeth healthy, and is a natural insect repellant. 

Our eucalyptus soap is the perfect body product for the fall and winter months. It will aid in loosening congestion, ease coughs, help to treat mild asthma and sinus problems, and help to soothe muscle pain and soreness.

Triple Butter Soap

Natural butters help to nourish and cleanse the skin. By doing this, they soften and restore skin to its natural health.  As the weather gets colder, the impact on our skin is harsher. 

We use three natural butters in our soups including Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter.  

  • Shea Butter:  Shea butter contains high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins, making it an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin. Organic Shea Butter is expeller-pressed from the kernel of the shea tree (Butyrospermum Parkii).  It is refined, bleached, and deodorized without the use of any chemicals.  The kernels resemble horse chestnuts and contain 45-48% fat, 10% protein, and 25-30% carbohydrates.  It is considered lactose-free, Gluten-Free, Glutamate Free, and BSE Free.  
  • Cocoa Butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it's touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over our skin to hold in moisture. Organic Cocoa butter is produced by pressing milled cocoa mass which is manufactured from cleaned, roasted, and hulled cocoa beans.  The product has a strong chocolate aroma. It is considered vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free, glutamate free, BSE free, and it contains no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, and preservatives.  
  • Mango butter is similar in consistency to shea butter, except mango butter moisturizes without greasiness. Mango butter contains several nutrients including Vitamin A, C, Calcium, Folate, and more. 

Our Triple Butter Soap is a blend of these three premium, luxurious butters: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. This soap will nourish and cleanse your skin to soften and restore it to its natural health.

Sugar Scrubs

Environmental conditions can worsen the condition of your skin.  Overexposure to wind and sun often causes further damage and flakiness to your face, body, and lips. Sugar granules are a natural abrasive. They can help to remove dry, flaky skin cells and brighten tired, dull-looking skin to promote smooth, healthy, and flawless skin. It also has a moisture benefit from all the luxurious oils. 

Our Sugar Scrubs are all Natural Body Sugar Scrubs and come in the following flavors: Almond, Blueberry, Candy Land, Cherry Almond, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Snow Fairy, Sugar Plum, Unscented, and Watermelon. Each batch of the Sugar Scrubs is made by hand with complete all-natural ingredients, poured in small batches in our studio, and wrapped with loving care. They are applied to the damp skin in a gentle circular motion and may be used from head to toe.  Once applied, rinse off the sugar, pat, or towel dry and the natural oils will remain on your skin, providing moisture.  

Whipped Body Butter

Whipped Body Butter forms a protective barrier over the skin to lock in moisture. Our skin already has a natural barrier to help protect us from the elements, but free radicals in the dry air, hot sun, and cold winter weather can all damage our skin. 

Our all-natural whipped Body Butters come in the following flavors: Almond, Blueberry, Candy Land, Cherry Almond, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Snow Fairy, Sugar Plum, Unscented, and Watermelon. The whipped body butter goes on creamy smooth and absorbs quickly. Your skin becomes soft and smooth after one application.
