What Do You Recommend For Eczema?

Many who suffer from eczema experience dry, itchy and flaky skin. We recommend using a body scrub to exfoliate and remove old, dry skin. Then follow up with our Whipped Body Butter while the skin is still wet to lock in moisture. For extra moisture, finish it off with the Bath & Body Oil. 

Can I Use These Products On My Baby?

Yes! Our products are handmade with all-natural ingredients for sensitive skin. We recommended performing  patch test on a small area of skin prior to full usage. 

What Should I do if my products melt during shipping?

No worries! As our products are made with all-natural ingredients and zero additives, they are naturally susceptible to melting in high temperatures. If this occurs, simply place the melted butter into the freezer for 15-20 minutes so that it can return to a solid state. During the production process the product is whipped. Once melted, you may notice that your product has change din texture, density and consistency. The beneficial properties of the product remains. To return your butter to a soft and whipped consistency, it must be re-whipped.
