Description

The one piece of advice I tell my twenty-something year old daughter is that it is never too early to start taking care of your skin. Aging is inevitable, but we can have some control over how we deal with its effects.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize, however be aware that whatever is in that cream gets absorbed into your system. Life's stresses inhibit the effectiveness of our lymphatic systems and if we cannot eliminate toxins efficiently they accumulate and we develop a dull lack-luster appearance. Environmental factors such as sun exposure and airborne pollutants, the effects from lack of sleep and diet deficiencies all take their toll.

The key to a youthful skin is cellular regeneration. Wrinkle wrath cream starts with the nutritional value of hazelnut and almond oils. Rich in protein they are good for moisturizing and balancing all skin types. Processed using cold pressed extraction rather than chemical solvents these nut oils won't add to the overload our skin faces daily.
Those with nut allergies need to be aware these base oils use almonds and hazelnuts. If you have a nut allergy, let me know and we'll use a nut free blend such as apricot, sunflower and/or grapeseed oils.

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.

***Due to personal preference or known allergies, there is the option at checkout to choose which of these solid oils you would like in your cream.

Rosehip seed oil can often be seen in products advertised for maintaining a youthful appearance. High in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and essential fatty acids, this precious oil is very effective for healing and rejuvenating dry or damaged skin. It is a very gentle hydrator which means it quickly penetrates skin.

Essential oils used are known for their reputation as valuable skin tonics. Frankincense, myrrh, clary sage, rosemary and geranium are wonderful for calming the psyche and lifting the spirits. Geranium, patchouli, rosewood and carrot balance the production of sebum in the sebaceous glands of the skin keeping it supple and restoring elasticity. Hormonal like properties in fennel encourage detoxification of wastes. Promoting the production of new cells, all of these oils rejuvenate and enlivens pale blotchy skin.

A positive mental attitude along with healthy living results in feeling and looking younger. Give your skin the good nutrition it needs by way of a healthy diet along with plenty of exercise for good circulation. Though a tan is beautiful, the UVA rays penetrate deeply and cause wrinkles. Smoking denies your cells much needed oxygen, which eventually ages the skin beyond your years.

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.

Complaints people often have with moisturizers is that they seem to leave behind an oily residue. Of course a reason could be the quality of the oils used in the lotion, but it could also be because:
1. You are using too much at a time
2. You are applying the moisturizer to old, dead skin cells and it is not penetrating the upper layer of your skin. Exfoliating regularly with gentle scrubs or exfoliating cloths can help with this issue

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!

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.

Creams come in a choice of a 1/2, 1 or 2 oz. size jar

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."

Shipping policies

Packages are carefully wrapped to ensure it reaches its destination safely.
If the package weighs 13 oz. or less it will ship by USPS First Class Mail. If it is something perishable during the heat of the summer I'll send it Priority Mail. If the package is over 13 oz. it will automatically need to be sent Priority Mail.
Packages that ship Priority Mail are automatically insured up to a value of $50.

I live on the east coast, therefore depending on to what zone the package is to be sent will determine the actual shipping costs. Shipping costs for Priority Mail varies greatly as a package travels further across the country. Should the package need not travel as far the actual shipping will of course be less, therefore the buyer will receive a refund on the shipping costs charged at the time of purchase.

For buyers with multiple items, if they end up overpaying on the totaled shipping costs compared to the actual shipping costs, I will reimburse minus the packaging costs.


INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:

Should a buyer choose the Other option as payment please be aware that I cannot accept personal checks. There may be problems with a check drawn on a non-US bank in a foreign currency. In fact, I'm not sure our banks will accept the payment. Payment needs to be as an International Postal Money Order in USD.

Contents of the order are itemized on the custom forms which is the requirement of the seller. Customs duties are the responsibility of the buyer. Each country has different limits and it is up to the buyer to educate himself/herself on that particular country's fees. Custom fees are often based on the dollar value. Businesses are not allowed to mark an order as a gift, it is marked as merchandise.
