Why this naturally sourced face cream is a must
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Beauty Kitchen. And that’s because sourcing the right ingredients responsibly, sits right at the top of our priority list.
Today we’re talking all about our Abyssinian Oil Facial Moisture Cream and how it gets from the farmer’s field to your face.
So, what is it exactly?
Abyssinian Oil is a multi-tasking miracle oil. Similar to Argan Oil, except turbo-charged, it’s carefully extracted from the tiny seeds inside the flowers of the Crambe Abyssinica plant. Honey bees love these delicate white and yellow blooms whereas farmers once toiled away to clear this ‘weed’ from their fields, they now grow and harvest it. Great news for the bees, the farmers and your skin.
How does it work?
The Abyssinian Oil we add to our lovely rich moisturising cream has been clinically proven to help boost skin lipids. These are the natural fats that form a protective barrier against damage and dirt and help battle nasty fine lines and wrinkles by keeping skin plump and hydrated. Abyssinian Oil Facial Moisture Cream is suitable for all skin types – even problem and oily skin and it’s fast become a Beauty Kitchen best seller.
What else is in the mix?
Once we’ve received a batch of freshly harvested flowers (sustainably sourced only!), the extracted oil is added to our secret skin nurturing mix of moisturising ingredients, including organic Shea Butter and sweet Almond Oil. We blend everything together naturally, by heating things up, then cooling them down again. Chemical nasties are a no-go for us, so you won’t find any sneaky fragrances, parabens or sulphates involved.
Who does the testing bit?
We only use natural ingredients with proven benefits but that’s not to say there isn’t a lot of mixing and measuring before we get the final formula just right! To make sure each and every jar of Abyssinian Oil Facial Moisture Cream delivers efficacy to the max, we do lots and lots… and lots of testing. But never with animals – we love them too much. We donate profits from product sales to help rhinos and seahorses and only humans get to be our guinea pigs.
And the jars?
Rest assured the ethical mission doesn’t stop in our mixing bowl. Every single 100 ml helping of Abyssinian Oil Facial Moisture Cream leaves in a recycled glass jar emblazoned with 100% recyclable , super- sustainable labels created from carbon-neutral waste limestone rock and vegetable based inks. Not a tree or drop of bleach in sight! And when you’ve used up your product and you’re ready to buy more, you can recycle the old jar or use it to store one of your own Beauty Kitchen Raw Inventions.
