Key Benefits: 

Almond Oil is packed with vitamins A, B, D and E, which promote healing, protection and cell turnover, while nutritive fatty acids have been found to soften, moisturise, and replenish the skin. Dry skin in particular loves it for its smoothing and softening effects.₁

Coconut Oil is extracted from the fruit of the coconut tree, and is full of fatty acids and proteins which nourish the skin. Containing lauric acid, it can also combat acne due to the way the acid reduces inflammation and bacteria.₂

Shea Butter is known for its smoothing and moisturising action on dry skin. More than this though, it can regenerate and soothe the skin, protects  from external factors like UV rays, and is rich in antioxidants and skin-loving vitamins A, E, and F. 

Lemongrass is pivotal to our Lemon Butter. It provides that signature fresh, natural scent that our customers know and love.

This fatty acid is used as an emollient and emulsifier. It has been shown to protect the skin’s moisture barrier, and vitamins A, E and F help to improve cell turnover and protect against free radicals.₄


Glycerin is a compound that naturally occurs in our skin. It helps to protect against irritation, strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier and it’s a humectant – a quality which means it retains water₅
