Great for Men and Women too!
For quite some time I have been searching for the ‘right’ combination of
ingredients to make a superior shaving product. Little did I know the
missing ingredient was sitting in one of our refrigerators where we
store delicate ingredients.
A lot of people know that shaving creams just don’t work that well.
Especially if they are like me and very easy to get a burn after a
shave. Recently several companies have come out with Shaving Butters.
Most of the time it is difficult to even find out what the ingredients
are. They brag about all the good extracts. Extracts typically amount to
only 1% or less of a product. I wanted to know what the other 99% of the
ingredients were. What we found, was these Shaving Butters are all
pretty much the same silicone based products that are in regular shave
creams, except a bit thicker. Silicones make things slick by leaving a
film. Unfortunately this film stays on the skin. In case you are just
discovering us, we don’t like silicones. (also known as dimethicone and
dozens of other names, silicones are in practically everything) We think
Silicones are ruining our skin and hair.
So how do we make a product that gives a super gliding action without
using silicones? And that helps the skin to be healthy? And not clog the
razor blade? Easier said than done.
When making our very popular hair conditioner, I noticed due to it’s
unique properties, it made a serviceable shaving lotion. Although it
tended to clog the blade. I decided what we learned from the hair
conditioner would help us develop a superior shaving butter.
I knew we couldn’t use Argan Oil because it absorbed too fast. We needed
a butter or oil that would lubricate the skin while shaving but absorbed
after the shave was done. So there was no greasy film. A high hurdle, we
didn’t think we could find. Most butters tend to be a bit gritty when
they are in their solid form.
Looking for the missing ingredient. Many years ago, we had bought a
pound of a butter that comes from a tree in India called Mowrah. Its
nicknamed the Butter Tree in India. I just never got around to testing
it. So when I was working on the shaving butter I went through several
of our ingredients refrigerators to see if there was anything I had
missed. I decided to break out this Mowrah Butter to see how it might
work. Mowrah Butter is solid at room temperature. I noticed even though
it was cold, it immediately melted on my skin. And it had a silky
feeling unlike any other butter I had tried. I just knew immediately
this would be the missing ingredient. And I was right.
Oil and water don’t mix. Our bodies are over 65% water. Our skin is even
higher in water composition. Oils and water don’t mix naturally. So when
you apply an oil to the skin it just sits there. It feels like it is
absorbing into the skin, but it is just sealing the skin. Holding water
in. That’s why your skin will feel moist. You might as well use Crisco
How do we benefit from oils and butters rich properties? In order to get
the benefits of an oil or butter, it must absorb into the skin. For that
to happen the oil has to be part of a true moisturizer. That’s what we
do, make true moisturizers, unlike anyone else. It’s truly a lost art.
An artisan process that involves specific vegetable ingredients and
timed mixing at specific temperatures. Most moisturizers out there are
just oils and thickeners. Not what you want.
I have a terrible beard to shave. It seems to go all directions. And I
have tender skin that burns and cuts easily. And I like a close shave.
The only way to get a close shave is to shave against the grain. And
that usually causes me to have a razor burn, especially on my neck. I
have to keep shaving at so many directions in order to get all the
stubble. I have tried so many different moisturizers and creams and
soaps. By the time I get all the beard I usually have a burn. This was
the first product that didn’t.
So why don’t I get a burn? Not sure exactly, except the superior
lubrication properties of this butter. I just kept trying different
formulations until I got it just right.
And after several weeks of daily close shaves I still am burn free. And
here’s also what I noticed. My beard shaves easier (no razor drag) and
the skin where I used to burn (my neck) seems healthier.
What about our testing? Everyone we’ve tested it with loves it. It comes
in a jar and is so incredibly thick. A thin layer seems to be all that
Should I wash it off after shaving? You may if you like. I just leave it
on. It eventually absorbs and the skin feels super moisturized.
For women too? Why not? My wife loves it.
What about ingrown hairs? First it is important to exfoliate. Our
anti-aging exfoliant is very good, or one of our acne treatments also is
very good. This opens up those pores and pulls out the curly hairs from
the skin. Follow directions, then rinse and apply a thin layer of this
butter (enough to lubricate) and enjoy your shave…finally.
Unscented? Why? Mainly because we could. Many butters and some oils have
a very earthy strong scent. Not something you want to smell like. We
typically use essential oils to cover those scents. This Mowrah Butter
is totally without a scent. Rather than adding in another scent, we
decided this was going to be easy. Besides, whenever you choose a scent
there is always someone who doesn’t like it. No one won’t like this. In
fact, I’m betting unscented will be a pretty strong selling point for
Why not make oil free products? Oils and butters are mother nature’s
little miracle gift to our bodies and our skin. Many plants produce
seeds to pass along their genes to the next generation. The mother plant
creates food for the baby plant to live on until it can put down roots
and make its own food. This food is in the form of oils and butters and
is very nutritious. Luckily these mother plants produce many more seeds
than is needed to maintain their species. We can take these seeds and
crush them and make oils and butters . Each plant produces it’s own
special formula of oil. If you did a chemical analysis of these oils you
would find that they have hundreds of ingredients. They are a bounty of
nutrients. We use them because they can solve skin issues that chemicals
cannot even come close to solving.
But what about oil free products? Oil free are basically chemical stews.
Nothing much there the body can use. And maybe some stuff that the body
doesn’t need. Oh I know oil free has been sold hard by the big companies
as good for the skin. I’d like someone to prove that to me. Anyone?
Don’t oils block pores? Another lie we have told over and over until we
think it is the truth. The molecules of oils are much much smaller than
the size of the pores. I don’t know how they could ever block pores.
What does block pores are the bacteria responsible for acne causes an
infection which makes the body produce materials to fight this
infections and that’s what blocks pores. Acne and blackheads are caused
What’s the difference between oils and butters? Butters are oils that
are solid at room temperature.
What do you mean by Precious Oils and Butters? The prices of a vegetable
oils are determined by how much is available and where it must come
from. and the old supply and demand. People are rapidly discovering this
oil free fad is ending. And how valuable oils are to the skin. For some
reason many of the best highest valued most nutritious oils are the most
expensive and rare. We use a lot of precious oils and we use them as
primary ingredients. Almost no one is doing this. Most skin care
companies would rather use less pricey oils and spend the big money on
marketing. We do the opposite. Our advertising budget is almost zero. We
depend on making products people will order and reorder.
Why are our products so special? Heat is the enemy of high end oils.
Excess heat destroys their delicate properties. We are able to use these
kind of precious ingredients because of our methods treat our
ingredients so delicately. Almost all moisturizers are made by a few big
manufacturers. Big manufacturers make their products in huge batches
(100’s of thousands of jars at a time) and use high heat to speed and
simplify production. We are completely different. Our products are
anything but simple. All products are made in small batches of a few
hundred jars at a time. We carefully control temperatures so precisely,
that the oils never go above damaging temperatures of 140 degrees F. And
the mixing takes place at exactly 126 degrees F. We use precise scales
and spreadsheets to insure batches are made exactly as planned. This is
an artisan process. Almost no one is doing this. Plus everything is made
and shipped fresh.
We first started offering skin care products in 1999. At first an acne
product. Then came our natural soap. At first we were asked to look at
moisturizers to see which ones we could recommend. We were horrified
when we saw practically all had awful animal ingredients, a myriad of
chemicals and were very acidic. Even the high end moisturizers were
pretty bad too. And everything carried incredibly long shelf lives.
Nothing you buy today was made recently. Usually years ago. I just knew
we could do better. Now we have ten’s of thousands of customers who I
believe would agree.
We’ve continued adding to our line because people are different and they
also need moisturizers for different situations, skin conditions and
skin types. Unless you have an identical twin, your skin has it’s own
unique skin chemistry.
Every oil and butter we work with has different properties. And
combining them will also change how they perform. The possibilities are
endless. Our goal is mainly just to solve skin issues and in so doing
earn your continued business.
Why pH neutral (balanced)? This is another reason our products are so
different. Just about everything out there for the skin is acidic. In
the beginning we wondered why? It used to not be so. Before this crop of
preservatives came on the market it was believed that most skin products
were pH neutral. These paraben preservatives worked remarkably well.
Long long shelf lives meant manufacturers could make huge batches and
just store them until sold. Of course they had to set their marketing
machine loose to tell us how good acids were for the skin. Because these
preservatives required an acid formulation. Since adult acne is a rather
new phenomenon, ask those adults with acne how all these acids are
working out for them.
Our bodies crave balance. Our blood is pH neutral, to slightly alkaline.
This fantasy about the ‘acid mantle’ was made up out of whole cloth to
sell these acid products. Think about it: if acids were so good for the
skin why does it feel so good to take a swim in the ocean? Which is the
opposite. Alkaline. Fact is, if pollution ever turned our precious
oceans acidic, most sea life would be dead. So why are we polluting our
skin with acids?
In the moisturizer business there is a rule called the ‘One Drop Rule’.
What is it? As long as a product has one drop of the ingredient it can
be named after that ingredient. So we could legally call our moisturizer
Mowrah and only have a drop in it. It would be legal, but in our mind it
would be wrong.
So why do companies do this? Mainly to save money.
So why are we so different? We decided a long time ago, not to go big.
Not to sell out. Our business model was the very best ingredients, fresh
made and shipped direct to our customers. No retail stores to get in the
way and tell us what to do. We are not perfect. We make mistakes. We are
working with highly precious ingredients that make producing products
with them difficult. If our products aren’t good enough, then we keep
improving them until they are the best. We listen to our customers and
respond to their requests and suggestions. Our only boss is our
customers. Our guarantee comes with no time limit.
What’s in it? (in order of prominence)
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 steam is collected). The problem we have with
distilled water is it has a lower pH due to the extra ions added during
the process. it’s very harsh. 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 it 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
Mowrah Butter: (Bassia latifolia seed butter) Also known as Mahua
butter, it is derived from the fruit kernels of the Madhuca (butter)
tree, which is native of India. In India this butter has both cosmetics
and edible uses. It is known to reduce the degeneration of skin cells,
prevent wrinkles, and restore skin flexibility. Although a solid at room
temperature, Morah butter melts when it comes into contact with skin.
Mowrah butter is high in oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and
linoleic acid. Mowrah butter is regenerative and emollient.
BTMS (Behentrimonium Methosulfate Cetearyl Alcohol) This is a vegetable
wax. Sulfate and sulfur free.
Glycerin (Vegetable) Unless a skin care product specifically says
vegetable glycerin on the label, the glycerin they almost always use
contains animal derived glycerin. I won’t even get into describing what
part of the animal they use. Think of everything in a cow and pig they
cannot sell as food. Yes everything. EVERYTHING! Put it this way it is a
big joke in the cosmetic community how many vegetarians are using animal
based products and don’t know it. We don’t use animal derived
ingredients because we just don’t know what is in them. To increase
their weight, they pump a lot of stuff into animals right before
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? No good
shaving product should be without it. Problem is… it is expensive. At
$15 a pound, manufacturers either don’t use it, or use just barely
enough to put it on the label. We use 2%. That’s a lot.
Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (vegetable wax) this is a waxy vegetable
ingredient used to give the moisturizers a bit of heft and contact feel.
It also is a lubricant.
Plus (4/10’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
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 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
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.
We also include a free 1/2 bar of our Natural shea butter
non-drying soap with each jar. This
Natural soap has to be tried to be believed. It is nothing
short of wonderful.
