Ideal for all skin types, this Serenity Cream is a soothing facial moisturizer utilizing only natural wholesome ingredients. Sensitive, allergy prone skin types tolerate and benefit from this choice in facial cream. Appealing to both men and women, the scent is a nice blend of musky sandalwood and herbal/flowery lavender. Men often mistakenly think they have no need for facial moisturizers. While true the facial skin of men may not dry out as easily as women, it is still important to be aware of its proper care.

Essential oils lavender and sandalwood both offer antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits.

It can be said that lavender essential oil is a combination first aid and beauty kit. Its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties make it beneficial for blemishes, sunburn, bug bites and skin regeneration. The aroma can be stimulating as well as relaxing.

Exotic sandalwood essential oil offers an earthy, sensual scent with subtle lingering power. Besides its wonderful hydrating effects for dry skin, sandalwood is a balm for the mind and spirit as well.

Rich in nutritional value almond and hazelnut oils absorb quickly into the skin without leaving an oily residue. They are light and odorless which are a plus in body care products. Both oils are unrefined and cold-expeller pressed which means there are no chemical solvents used to extract the oils.
People with nut allergies need to be aware these base oils contain almonds and hazelnuts.
If you have a nut allergy, we can substitute the nut oils with other types such as apricot, sunflower, and/or grapeseed.

Coconut oil is added for its cool, creamy texture as well as its help to stiffen the cream. Its unique molecular structure allows it to easily absorb into your skin while not leaving behind a greasy film. The natural antioxidants found in coconut oil fight against free-radicals which damage connective tissue and cause the skin to lose elasticity and wrinkles

For those who prefer a substitution for coconut oil, we use what is called African Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturizing, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating. Shea Butter easily penetrates the skin allowing the skin to breathe without clogging the pores. The addition of shea butter is a good idea for those with oily skin. Shea butter offers a little fluff to the final cream .

No fragrance oils, synthetics or parabens. Please read NOTE below about preservatives.

Moisturize as needed onto clean skin, ideally while the skin is still moist after cleansing. Use gentle, circular motions with your fingertips, paying special attention to the delicate area around the eyes. If you wear foundation wait a few minutes for the moisturizer to soak in or you could dab any "shine" with a soft cotton square. Due to various skin types, you may need only a tiny bit at a time, or perhaps only the cheeks and around the eyes, or you may just need a moisturizer as a night cream. Keep in mind that this cream has a higher oil:water ratio than you may be used to; very effective for dry skin.

To minimize the risk of contamination make sure you have clean fingers before dipping into the cream or use the little wooden spatula (included).

Beauty tip: Don't forget to moisturize your neck!

Cream comes in a 2 oz. jar

NOTE ON PRESERVATION:
Items are made in small batches as they are needed. The concept behind this shop is for the consumer seeking all natural products with the understanding that the items are not intended to sit around and only natural preservatives are used.
Natural preservatives are antimicrobial grapefruit seed extract, antioxidant Vit. E and the concentration of essential oils. What this means is that while these natural preservatives deter the growth of bacteria and molds, they are not broad spectrum and offer a limited shelf life. Being the risk of contamination and loss of potency over time is present in any perishable product, please try to use the item within 3 to 4 months. Products which contain water such as the creams and lotions are the most at risk for contamination. The salves, containing no water, are very stable as is and are fine for months. Keep any of the products in a cool location, out of exposure to heat and sunlight, and be sure to have clean hands before using. Refrigeration will extend the shelf life of perishable items.

NOTE ABOUT COCONUT OIL:
Ordinarily, in the making of my creams, I use refined coconut oil for the reason that not everyone enjoys the smell of coconuts. To avoid the smell of coconuts interfering with the final scent of the product (either the scent-free cream or the essential oil blends), I use the refined coconut oil unless by request to use the unrefined. Below is a bit of information to explain the differences between the refined vs. unrefined.
The differences between refined and unrefined coconut oils used for my products are in how the oil is processed.
Both the refined and unrefined coconut oils have been expeller, cold-pressed without the addition of any chemicals.
There are refined coconut oils on the market that use a chemical distillation process dependent on solvents such as lye. These products may be hydrogenated using high heat which should be avoided as they create synthetic trans-fats. The refined coconut oil I use are refined using a natural, chemical-free cleaning process involving steam and/or diatomaceous earth. The cold pressed extraction method yields an oil of higher nutritional value than extraction methods that use chemicals or heat.
The smell of coconuts in the refined coconut oil is removed by heat, but the temperatures do not go over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Some antioxidants are destroyed but some can actually increase.
Antioxidants must still be present and not destroyed through processing in order for coconut oil to fight free radical damage.
As to whether coconut oil is comedogenic, meaning it clogs pores, depends on a person’s skin type, pore size, and the quality of the oil itself. Overall, good quality coconut oil can be wonderful in skin care.
Creams made with the unrefined coconut oil do have a noticeable scent of coconut, however it is pleasant and not at all overwhelming.



"After washing my face, even just rinsing with plain water, my skin starts to feel so tight. The feel of any one of these creamy moisturizers is like a little bit of heaven."

"This moisturizer is replacing my department store brand moisturizer for sure. Not one break out and I like how quickly this moisturizer absorbs into my skin and how soft and smooth my skin feels after use. This moisturizer is a must staple in my daily skin care routine."
