You all know of my tales of woe with my super dry skin…well I have a great solution for you in the form of a tried and true product in a new formulation. Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter [$35] is a TMG Faves item and a must have on my counter for silky smooth skin with absolutely no dryness. This is whipped, fluffy and light as air it also smells divine. Not in that perfumey way but in a natural clean way that doesn’t compete with your fragrance. The cream should last a good long time as a little bit goes a long way. Very light on the skin yet rich in 24-hour hydration.
- Shea Butter the natural fat obtained from the fruit of the African Karate tree and is widely used in lotions and cleansing products for its hydrating properties. Protects skin from dehydration, restores skin’s suppleness and improves the appearance of dry skin.
- Squalane a highly refined moisturizing oil derived from the olive; Squalane is very silky and easily absorbed and has been found to be extremely compatible with the natural oils of the skin; we use Squalane in many of our formulations.
- Jojoba extracted from the beanlike seeds of the desert shrub Simondsia Chinensis and has been traditionally used by both Mexicans and Native Americans for skin care purpose. It reduces transepidermal water loss without completely blocking the transportation of water vapor and gasses, providing suppleness and softness. It is nurturing for the skin and helps to restore skin’s natural lipid barrier.
- Beta Carotene a naturally derived antioxidant predominantly found in many orange/red vegetables such as carrots. It is used in Vitamin A production and gives an orange tint when used in skin care products.
