At Duckish Natural Skin Care, we are all about ingredients, which is why ours are all naturally derived and in some cases organic, too. We want you to know what's in our products and why. Shea butter, olive oil and coconut oil are the three ingredients we use most, which is why we wanted them to be organic. We're going to be incorporating more and more organic ingredients into our skin care products as we go.
As with any product, if you have existing health conditions, always consult your physician prior to use.
Here's a list of ingredients we use, and why they're great for keeping your skin looking its best. Each product label lists all of the ingredients.
Beeswax: When used in skin care products like our lip balms, lotion sticks and diaper rash sticks, beeswax helps create a protective barrier to keep moisture in while still allowing the skin to breathe. The Vitamin A found in beeswax helps to soften and rehydrate dry skin. Its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral qualities make it great for calming skin problems associated with rosacea or eczema.
Dead Sea Salt: Loaded with minerals like potassium, sulphur, calcium, sodium and magnesium, Dead Sea salt reduces skin inflammation and improves hydration. Dead Sea salt baths have also been proven to have a positive effect on skin conditions like psoriasis. The uniquely high magnesium content of Dead Sea salt also helps to improve blood circulation and detoxify the body by flushing out toxins from the skin’s pores. You can get all the benefits of a soak with Dead Sea salt in our Lavender Bath Salts, Mint Bath Salts, Citrus Bath Salts and of course, the Salt Detox Bundle.
Epsom Salt: Epsom salt is made up of magnesium sulfate, minerals that are easily absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream helping to detoxify the body. This mineral helps to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and are vital building blocks for healthy skin. Find Epsom salt in our Lavender Bath Salts, Mint Bath Salts, Citrus Bath Salts, the Salt Detox Bundle, or our bath bombs.
Grape Seed Oil: Grape seed oil contains antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, and astringent qualities that help tighten skin, close up pores and improve elasticity. It also contains linoleic acid, which is great for promoting skin health. Overall, grape seed oil is an excellent moisturizer that won’t clog pores, which is why we use it in our body butters, lotion sticks, and lip balms.
Himalayan Pink Salt: With its high mineral content, including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, chloride and potassium, as well as its detoxifying and skin hydrating properties, Himalayan pink salt is more than just a pretty face. Get all the benefits of a soak with Himalayan pink salt in our Lavender Bath Salts, Mint Bath Salts, Citrus Bath Salts and of course, the Salt Detox Bundle.
Jojoba Oil: Jojoba oil is non-greasy and has anti-inflammatory properties to help calm acne-prone skin. Similar to the natural oil produced by the human body, jojoba oil helps to regulate the production of sebum (or natural oil produced) by the skin. Jojoba is easily absorbed by the skin and has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits, making it perfect for our body butters and lotion sticks.
Organic Coconut Oil: Loaded with fatty acids, coconut oil is a rock star when it comes to keeping skin soft and moisturized. Naturally occurring capric, caprylic, and lauric acids in coconut oil also give it antibacterial and disinfecting properties. We use organic coconut oil in our body butters, lotion sticks, bath salts, lip balms, and diaper rash sticks.
Organic Olive Oil: Aside from its amazing skin conditioning qualities, olive oil has three important antioxidants (polyphenols, vitamin E and phytosterols) that help protect the skin. Olive oil also contains a compound called hydroxytyrosol, that helps prevent free-radical skin damage. We love organic olive oil so much, we use it in our body butters, lotion sticks, lip balms, and diaper rash sticks.
Organic Shea Butter: Packed with Vitamin A, organic shea butter is a superb moisturizer and has been used to heal a variety of skin conditions including minor skin irritations, eczema, stretch marks and insect bites for years. We use it in our body butters, lotion sticks, lip balms, and diaper rash sticks.
Rosemary Leaf Extract: Known for its antimicrobial properties, this antioxidant helps to preserve natural products and has its own skin conditioning qualities. We add a touch to our scented body butters and lotion sticks.
Sea Salt: Like Dead Sea salt, sea salt is also full of minerals that improve skin hydration, reduce skin inflammation, and alleviate muscle soreness by reducing the toxins that can build up in the body. Get all the benefits of a soak with sea salt in our Lavender Bath Salts, Mint Bath Salts, Citrus Bath Salts and of course, the Salt Detox Bundle.
Sweet Almond Oil: Not only is sweet almond oil packed with vitamins such as E, A and D, it's also rich in oleic and linoleic acids, making it ultra moisturizing and a great anti-inflammatory. Often used to treat various skin conditions such as eczema, sweet almond oil has fatty acids that help to calm acne-prone skin. Sweet almond oil also helps to restore the skin’s normal PH and preserve moisture, making it perfect for our diaper rash sticks, lotion sticks, and bath salts.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E is an antioxidant and is great for skin hydration and skin conditioning, tackling free radicals and repairing skin damage. We use it in our body butters, diaper rash sticks, lotion sticks, and lip balms.
Bergamot (FCF) Essential Oil: The oil from the rind of this lesser known citrus fruit is sweet-smelling, antifungal and antibacterial - qualities that keep skin, especially oily skin, looking its best. This oil is used in our delicious-smelling Citrus Bath Salts.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil: The antiseptic and antibacterial qualities of eucalyptus oil have made it a prime choice historically to heal minor wounds and abrasions. Its invigorating minty smell also stimulates blood flow that can contribute to improved mental acuity. This oil is used in our Mint Lip Balm and Mint Bath Salts.
Lavender Essential Oil: Aside from smelling simply amazing, lavender essential oil has a calming effect and a plethora of uses. But when it comes to natural skin care, its antiseptic and antifungal properties make it a winner. Historically, it has been used to minimize acne and wrinkles, alleviate eczema and psoriasis, and heal minor skin wounds and inflammation.

Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil: Great for oily and acne-prone skin, grapefruit essential oil doesn’t just smell amazing, it’s rich in antioxidants like Vitamin C and is known for its antiseptic properties, must-haves when it comes to keeping skin looking its best. Find it in our Pink Grapefruit Body Butter, Pink Grapefruit Lotion Sticks, Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm, and our Citrus Bath Salts.
Peppermint Essential Oil: Cooling peppermint oil has menthol and an array of vitamins and nutrients that can soothe skin, but given its potency, it’s best to avoid using peppermint oil on children under 12. Peppermint oil also has antifungal properties and has been used for years to treat a variety of skin ailments. Find it in our Mint Lip Balm and Mint Bath Salts.
(Rose) Geranium Essential Oil: Geranium essential oil keeps skin looking great due its natural antiseptic properties that can reduce skin inflammation. This sweet, floral smelling oil also has a calming effect that can help melt stress away. That's why we use it in our Coco Rose Bath Bombs, which are a part of the Best Kind Bundle, Duckish Starter Bundle, and Boat Load Bundle.
Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil: Naturally calming sweet orange essential oil is great for winding down at the end of a long day, and has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. It also smells amazing. See for yourself with our Citrus Bath Salts.
