OILS - We use a wide variety of organic oils in our beauty products. Each oil has a specific purpose and health benefit, depending on the product. All of our body scrubs contain sweet almond oil, which is produced exclusively with edible almonds. Sweet almond oil is very mild, and great for sensitive skin; it delivers moisture and keeps skin soft. Sweet almond oil also contains vitamin A, which is known to help reduce clogged pores (produced in USA).

Vitamin E oil is also used in all of our beauty products. This oil is an antioxidant with powerful anti-aging properties. Vitamin E also acts as a natural preservative (produced in produced in CA, USA).

We use crushed rose buds (produced in France), and we use rose petals and french lavender (grown and picked in Olesia's Organic garden in Hamptons, NY); all of these floral elements create a delicate and beautiful natural aroma. We also use rose essential oil, which has antibacterial, and antiviral properties, making it ideal for healing the skin when damaged (produced in NY, USA).
