When most people think of the worlds most expensive spice, Saffron
($1290 a pound), we think of cooking. Saffron comes from a part of a
flower. The Crocus Sativus plant. Difficult to grow and to harvest,
hence the high price. Saffron does add wonderful flavors to our food.
Here in the USA, Saffron is not known as for it’s skin benefits.
Saffron is especially good for dry damaged skin. We have been itching to
use some new butters we have been testing. Namely Illipe butter from
Borneo. Sal Butter from India and Mowrah Butter from India as well.
Usually we use Jojoba, which speeds up absorption. We skipped the jojoba
on this time. We wanted this cream to sit on the skin’s surface for a
while. And then absorb.
What’s in it? (in order of prominence)
Spanish Saffron (Crocus Sativus) Steeped in Reverse Osmosis Purified
Water: Virtually all skin care products ‘say’ they use purified water.
But the real deal is reverse osmosis purified water. This mean ZERO
contaminants which means the starting point is pure. It’s expensive to
do (goes through 5 filters, which have to be changed often), but it is
the only water we use. We use the waste water from this purifying
process to water our flowers and landscaping. So there is no waste.
Don’t some products use distilled water? Yes but distilled water is
environmentally expensive to make (heat is used to boil the dirty water
and stream is collected). The problem we have with distilled water is it
has a lower pH due to the extra ions added during the process. We prefer
to work with pH neutral water. To me there is no more perfect water than
R-O water. I remember the 1st time we made soap with it. As we poured
the soap is was so creamy! It looked like home made ice cream right
before it gets solid. It’s one of our special secrets to how good our
products are. Again, no one does this.
Illipe Butter (Shorea Stenoptera): This butter comes from Borneo. It is
a premium butter renown for it’s healing properties. Each natural Butter
has it’s own unique nutrient profile. Our skin can absorb these
nutrients and use them. Natures little gift to us.
Sal Butter: (shorea robusta) tree natively found in India, Bangladesh,
Nepal and Burma. We use unrefined cold pressed sal butter. Sal Butter
has, excellent moisturizing skin properties that provides long lasting
flexibility to skin, reduces degeneration of skin cells, softens rough
skin (like feet, hands, elbows and knees), helps prevent chapping skin
from cold weather.
Sal butter is gentle on the skin, slows down moisture loss, increases
softness of the skin and easily absorbs into the skin. Excellent for
those of us with extremely dry parched skin.
Mowrah butter (Bassia Latifolia) Mowrah Butter is obtained from the
fruit of the Indian tree (Madhuca Latifolia). Mowrah butter is known to
prevent drying of the skin and development of wrinkles. Reduces
degeneration of skin cells and restores skin flexibility. All good
things for your skin.
BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate Cetearyl Alcohol): This
is a vegetable wax that is used to combine the oils and water.
Glycerin (vegetable). What skin care product doesn’t benefit from
Glycerin? Problem is most store bought and even high end moisturizers
often use animal derived Glycerin. You don’t even want to know how they
make this glycerin. Unless the label specifically says vegetable, it is
almost always animal derived. Yuck!
D-Panthenol (2%) Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) is present in all living
cells in the form of Pantothenic acid
which is a constituent of Co-enzyme A. A deficiency in Pantothenic acid
results in dermatological and many physiological disorders. It is used
in many hair care products but also is easily absorbed by the skin. Well
known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties for professional skin care
formulations where it also acts as a powerful redness reducer even when
used at only 1.0%. Hmmmmm, redness reducer? Anti-inflammatory? Problem
is… it is kind of expensive. At $15 a pound, manufacturers either don’t
use it, or use just barely enough to put it on the label. We use the
full 2% considered maximum usage. That’s a lot.
Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (vegetable) this is a waxy vegetable ingredient
used to give the moisturizers a bit of heft and contact feel.
Germall Plus (6/10’s of 1%) (diazolidinyl Urea,
3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate) (a vegetable derived preservative to
keep our product fresh) only needs 4/10’s of one percent to keep our
product safe. Look before you ask, no totally natural preservative
really protects products from bacteria. We don’t like using Parabens.
And since we pH balance our moisturizers we are limited in our choice of
preservatives. What’s great about this one is so little is needed to
Vanilla Absolute and Blood Orange essential Oil. I think I really like
this combination. Keep in mind we needed to use essential oils that
blend this with the natural scent of the saffron. I think this really
Best if used within one year of receipt. I’ll bet no skin care product
you have bought from a store was made within the last year. Most of the
products on store shelves, were made years ago. We find we can better
control our quality if we make products as they are used. Fresh just
makes for better skin care products. Our families all use our products.
We only sell what we would use.
pH neutral: And why is this important? Although we use ingredients that
have an acid pH, the finished moisturizer is pH neutral, like all of our
moisturizers. We believe the skin is actually stressed by acids.
Virtually all moisturizers on the market are acid. We wondered why? If
acids are so good for the skin as these products claim, why does it feel
so good to take a swim in the ocean? Ocean water pH is very much the
opposite of acid. Slightly alkaline. Why is it recommended to keep
swimming pool water slightly alkaline? There is a whole line of thinking
now that promotes alkalines. We believe the skin and all of nature loves
alkaline and hates acids. If the ocean were to all of a sudden become
slightly acid, mostly it would be a dead body of water. Forget this
nonsense of the ‘acid mantle’. Our bodies when healthy, are pH neutral
to slightly alkaline.
No animal ingredients or testing EVER! We also get assurances from our
suppliers that all of our raw ingredients are not animal derived or any
animal testing done there either.
Most skin care products you buy to use today, were made in large
factories years ago and have been in storage. Everything we ship was
made in small batches within a few weeks of shipping. Fresh matters!
Quality ingredients matter!
Most of our ingredients are as close to natural as possible. We avoid
overly processed ingredients. Processing means heat and that destroys
the goodness in these precious ingredients we use.
also include a free FULL SIZE bar of our Natural shea butter
non-drying soap with each jar. An $8.00 value if purchases
Natural soap has to be tried to be believed. It is nothing
short of wonderful.
