The scent is composed of freshly picked green coffee beans (very different from the scent of coffee, with green and fresh elements), an ancient aromatic spikenard from Nepal, frankincense, pinyon pine, and an everlasting (helichrysum) extract that adds layers and layers of something elusive, reminiscent of highest-grade cured tobacco and curry.
Ucuuba butter: Amazonian ucuuba is like a combination of beneficial herbs, hay, and nutmeg all in one butter. This traditional folk remedy is helpful for acne, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin issues, renews collagen, and promotes skin regeneration.
Kokum butter: Noncomedogenic, pore minimizing (astringent), and rich in vitamin E. Kokum butter comes from cold-pressing mangosteen kernels.
Sapote oil: A rare find, sapote oil from Guatemala is dry, creamy, and highly cleansing. It is called an oil but it has the feel of a butter, and it smells of roasted almonds.
Babassu oil: This oil-butter is a penetrating, lightly astringent emollient for dry to very dry skin, and it is noncomedogenic.
Green coffee bean oil: An extremely light and silky oil the color of dark green seaweed, green coffee oil has a pH similar to our skin, and it is abundant in phytochemicals. It is particularly beneficial for all mature skin concerns, but being so lightweight, it is also valuable in the care of acne-prone and oily skin.
Spikenard essential oil: Topically, spikenard is renowned for helping with stubborn skin issues, particularly acne, psoriasis, eczema, and scalp problems.
Usnea lichen extract: The usnea is a group of lichen often used by herbalists, and was chosen for its clarifying benefits and the speed with which it can dry up acne breakouts.
Frankincense essential oil: When it comes to fresh, unrefined botanical ingredients for wrinkles, signs of sun damage, loss of skin firmness, and age spots, frankincense is at the top of the list along with myrrh and rose. Frankincense also reduces puffiness and speeds skin healing.
For acne-prone, congestion-prone, combination, and oily skin types. We recommend that folks with sensitive skin order a sample and test it over the course of several days. Oftentimes, the skin needs a day or a few to adjust to these new ingredients and then begins to tolerate the balm well.
