Lavish your skin with exquisite organically grown botanicals: pomegranate, borage, seabuckthorn, white tea, carrot seed, and rose geranium—a serum in cream form. Rich and intensive, yet fast absorbing, and leaves skin dewy, soft, and plump with locked-in moisture. Over time, this cream refines the texture of skin, smoothing and evening out skin tone, resulting in naturally lustrous, radiant, healthy skin.

The botanicals in this cream brim with beneficial phytochemicals: unusual essential fatty acids that help skin maintain a strong and supple barrier to the outside world; phytosterols that reduce redness and tone skin; humectants that draw moisture to the skin; and polyphenols and other antioxidants that scavenge free radicals associated with collagen destruction. For more information on these remarkable ingredients, and on the way I formulated this cream, see below.

Deep Radiance is formulated to benefit all skin types, from sensitive to dry to oily to mature. Those with very oily skin should apply this sebum-balancing cream sparingly, perhaps using only as a nighttime treatment.

Directions: Cleanse and tone skin. Dot with very small amounts of this concentrated cream, and gently smooth into skin using upward strokes. A little goes a long way, so start with less than you would think. Applied morning and night, this size jar of cream will last four to six months!

A BIT ON FORMULATING THIS CREAM:

I love this cream, my pride and joy, the result of lots of experimentation and many months of formulation and testing on myself, friends, and family. As with all of my products, this cream is truly purist all natural. Of course there are no petroleum derivatives, synthetic fragrances, parabens or formaldehyde-releasers - but I also go without synthetic preservatives and highly-processed vegetable emulsifying wax, both of which are very common in otherwise all-natural moisturizers. A great deal of thought, care, and experimentation went into creating this naturally self-preserving, truly all-natural emulsion! The result is a gorgeous cream in which every single ingredient is pure, honest, and amazing for the skin.

And oh, what ingredients they are. I packed this cream with my ingredient obsessions, ingredients that work wonders for skin health and have a soft, light, silky skinfeel. Every ingredient counts - this is a serum in cream form.

Deep Radiance smells delightful and is a pleasure to use, leaving skin soft, dewy, and well-hydrated. Over time the botanicals work their magic, leaving skin smoother with a more even tone. Skin develops the natural luster and radiance that come with health.

Here are a few tidbits about some of the star ingredients in this cream:

*organic pomegranate oil - the same ingredient I use in my Pomegranate Eye Serum (www.etsy.com—pomegranate-eye-serum-an-intensive) <http://www.etsy.com/listing/63908895/pomegranate-eye-serum-an-intensive)> for its amazing qualities. powerful and gentle, there is no better skincare botanical than pomegranate. regenerating, evening, toning, and elasticity-supporting.

*organic white tea - I handmake an extract of this wonderful botanical. packed with free radical-scavenging antioxidants

*organic rose geranium essential oil - balances combination skin, is an all around tonic for the skin

*organic carrot seed essential oil - smoothing and refining. I think of this as the essential oil for skin texture.

*organic borage oil - exceptionally silky and penetrating, loaded with the essential fatty acid GLA, which helps to restructure and smooth skin, ease irritation, and assist chapped and damaged skin

*organic meadowfoam seed oil - light, silky, and penetrating, helps draw beneficial botanicals into the skin

*grapeseed oil (expeller pressed, not extracted with the solvent hexane) - lightweight, fast absorbing, and packed with omega-6 fatty acids to help skin maintain a strong, supple barrier to the outside world.

*organic seabuckthorn co2 extract - a wonderful ingredient for environmentally damaged skin. the free-radical scavenging carotenes in seabuckthorn lend this cream its rich color.

Frequently asked questions about PriyaMeansLove

No, never -- this is very important to me. My passion, which became my business, stems from my reverence for natural, minimally processed beautiful materials, and from my own profound chemical sensitivities -- so you can be sure that my none of my products will ever contain these sorts of materials. My products are truly, radically all natural.
That's a tough question to answer in a short space. But, in essence: there's no standard definition for what "all natural" means in the bodycare and cosmetic world.* Different people have different definitions, and I often see products labeled "all natural" that contain dubious ingredients.

What I mean by radically all natural is that every single ingredient I use would fit anyone's notion of what it is to be natural. My products are made from simple, elemental, minimally processed ingredients like herbs, clays, essential oils, oils, and beeswax. Good, clean food, basically!

*In fact "all natural" isn't a regulated term, and any company can call their products natural, even if they contain synthetic fragrances, preservatives, etc.!
Quite a while! Typically 1-3 years. I formulate my products to be enjoyed over time, and each product is labeled with its batch number and with an "enjoy by" date. The shelf life depends on the particular oils in the product -- just as you wouldn't cook with olive oil that's a few years old, so also will the natural oils in bodycare go rancid over time. If you get to the end of the stated shelf life and your product still feels and smell fresh (no gumminess to a balm, no whiff of old oil), feel free to keep using it! I am pretty conservative when stating shelf life, so products typically last months longer than indicated.
Away from sunlight and at consistent room temperature is ideal -- your medicine cabinet or a shady dresser top is perfect. No need to store in the fridge. Think of it like how you'd store dried herbs -- sunlight steals the mojo of these products, and heat can dull the aromatics over time. And repeated fluctuations from very warm to very cold can change the texture of body butters and creams,

A few places to *avoid* storing your goodies: in a car (big temperature swings!), on top of a radiator, on a sunny windowsill.

Because my products are made from natural oils, butters, and waxes, they may become softer in very hot weather or harder in cold weather. These texture variations are normal and won't affect the performance of the product.
My products are rich in botanicals, which speak to our bodies in complex, profound ways. But with plants, allergies are always a possibility. Please read ingredients lists, know your own allergies, and ask questions; when in doubt consult your doctor and/or do a patch test. All the descriptions of my products and ingredients are for educational purposes only.
My products are cruelty free and always will be. I am personally against animal testing, and I will never test my products on animals. To be cruelty-free, a company's ingredients must not be tested on animals either. Part of the reason I use simple, natural ingredients with a long history of human use is that they sidestep the supposed "need" for animal testing, because they're already known to be safe.

My products are all vegetarian (like me!), and many are naturally vegan. The only non-vegan ingredients I use are beeswax from local farmers who use good bee-friendly practices, natural lanolin (extracted from sheared sheep's wool), and powdered milk. Many of my products can be made vegan on request -- feel free to convo me!
I try to avoid bringing more packaging into this world! Most of my glass packaging can be returned to me for a refund of $1 per piece. Unfortunately I'm unable to cover shipping expenses, so I recommend saving up a handful of containers before mailing your glass packaging back to me. Convo me for my shipping address; when I receive your packaging, I'll issue you a refund on a previous order or via PayPal.

I often vend at markets in the Baltimore/DC/Philadelphia area -- if you live in the area, you're welcome to return packaging to me in person!

All of my products are handmade from scratch by me! I formulate and handmake everything in my Baltimore workshop, using only radically all natural, minimally processed ingredients, most of which are organic or wildharvested. I aim to make my products as from-scratch as possible, starting with herbs, some of which I grow, wildharvest, or source from a nearby farm. My workshop is always brimming with herbs infusing in oils and tinctures brewing, raw materials that will end up in my Deep Radiance Face Cream, Balsam Fir Deodorant, Lavender Mud shampoo -- you name it!
