Extra Virgin Olive Oil Olea europaea >> Olive oil contains antioxidants that fight free-radical damage, preventing premature aging and repairing environmental damage. It contains a compound called squalene, which is extremely hydrating and nourishing for the skin. We use organically grown, cold-pressed olive oil from the Ojai Olive Oil.
Raw Beeswax >> We use raw, unfiltered beeswax from our local beekeepers at Mission Beekeeping. This incredible substance is made by bees in the hive and consists of fatty acids and long-chain alcohols. It has humectant properties which means that it helps to draw and lock moisture in the skin for ultimate hydration.
Propolis >> Propolis is a waxy combination of tree sap and beeswax formed by bees in the hive to ward off bacteria, fungus and other potentially dangerous microorganisms. This sticky substance has powerful antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that help to keep the bees and the hive healthy. Our propolis also comes from our friends at Mission Beekeeping.
Hemp Cannabis Sativa >> We work closely with our cultivators to ensure 100% organically grown, pesticide-free, full-spectrum hemp oil (FSO). The results of using CBD on the skin can be immediate and lasting, as it helps to nourish and repair damaged or problematic skin. You can read more about the benefits of CBD in our Hemp Guide.
Calendula Calendula officinalis >> This aromatic flower contains several nutritional constituents such as carotenoids, vitamins A and E, and linoleic acid. Calendula is naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and helps to soothe many problematic skin conditions, ranging from infections to scar tissue. This abundant, resilient herb is grown on our partner farm, Shear Rock Farms in Upper Ojai.
Douglas Fir Needle Pseudotsuga menziesii >> This evergreen tree is native to the Northwestern United States and can be found throughout the Los Padres National Forest north of Ojai. Douglas Fir Needle has long been used to aid in healing topical wounds, scar tissue and other skin conditions.
