While we love to drink water and bathe in it, we don’t really need it in our skin care products. That’s why our range of bath, body and baby care products are (and have always been!) water free.
Water scarcity is a serious and pressing issue. According to
the WWF, two thirds of the world’s population will experience water shortages by 2025. So for us, removing unnecessary water from bath and body products was a no-brainer. Not only do water-free products weigh less and therefore use less energy to transport, they are also much more concentrated and require less packaging, minimizing their footprint all around.
Our body balm sticks have the same moisturizing power as
lotions five times the size, but are definitely not five times the price, so you get more value for your money. Because we don’t use water, every ingredient is an active ingredient. Every tube of lip balm and stick of body balm and jar of body butter is full of nourishing and moisturizing oils and butters, which makes them both concentrated and effective.
The skin impact (or “skimpact,” if you will) is twofold. One: no water means more concentrated, and more concentrated products are often better at locking moisture into dry skin, working especially well on mature skin. Two: where there is water, there is life, including bacteria. That’s why products made with water also require preservatives, some of which can irritate your skin. Because we don’t use water, we use natural antioxidants like vitamin E and rosemary extract instead, which slow down the degradation of the ingredients and are great for your skin.
No matter what kind of bag you carry, whether it’s a purse,
a gym bag, a carry-on or a satchel, no one likes spills inside, especially lotion. Our water-free products won’t spill or leak, so they’re great for any bag. You can take it on the plane for mid-flight touch-ups. You can even slip a mini body balm inside those jeans pockets that are otherwise kind of useless! Being water free makes our products more concentrated, better value and easier to use, and that fits any lifestyle.
