Our Hotty Balm Mature to Dry was our original 'wrinkle' cream with rose and frankincense essential oils. This light facial balm is made from a fusion of timeless plant essences, herbs and vegetable oils in a shea butter and beeswax base to naturally soothe, protect and rejuvenate skin.
This is a waterless formula which means it is only the good stuff and none of the filler for powerful protection and moisturizing. Water based products no matter how expensive or natural, are 70-80% water and are not able to do much of benefit for our skin. Water is used to bring the minimal amount of oils into the dermal layer but the moisture quickly evaporates. We really wanted to put as much naturally potent ingredients together into a formula in such a way that it fits the skin to not only absorb but maintain moisture and plumping.
Beeswax can be thought of as heavy but when used properly in a formula, it is a powerful emollient rich in vitamin A, superior in locking moisture in for long term smoothing and has beneficial antibacterial properties for sensitive skin issues. Our Hotty Balm Mature to Dry has become known for soothing and aiding in inflammation of the skin due to eczema. This balm can be used head to toe. Beeswax has anti-inflammatory properties that can control the topical manifestation of eczema. Along with reducing itching and swelling of the skin, it creates an invisible, breathable barrier that allows the skin to maintain natural oils to heal. This blend also includes rose essential oil, the 'Queen of Essential Oils.' Rose is very high in terpenes. Terpenes are the major biosynthetic building blocks within nearly every living creature. Exactly what I want for my maturing skin! This balm is the queen of moisturizers filled with the nurturing power and grace of mother nature.
It can be used day or night, just warm the balm in your fingers and apply to naturally soothe, protect and rejuvenate your skin. It is safe for fragile skin areas and is excellent for eye care. This formula also has natural UV and SPF properties with the use of ingredients such as olive oil, jojoba oil, shea butter and vitamin E.
Hotty Body Balm naturally soothes, protects and rejuvenates your skin. The texture of this body balm smoothes onto the skin to leave it feeling silky soft. It is very nice to use after cleansing. Warm up a small amount in fingertips and gently smooth onto skin. Pat in around the eye, so as not to pull this fragile skin area. This beautiful balm restores, replenishes and adds a noticeable radiance to your skin.
Every ingredient adds a special element to this beautiful balm. Beeswax is one of nature's most valued moisturizers. Derived from the transparent fluid that is produced by a bee from its hexagonal booths, pure beeswax is safe and compatible to the human skin. It adds to the skin's moisture by boosting the natural oil supply.
Shea Butter is an important part of this base. For thousands of years, humans have applied and consumed shea butter for its skin-protecting properties. It is very rich in Omega-6 linoleic and Omega-9 oleic Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), which comprise over 50% of shea butter by weight. It also contains large, naturally-occurring concentrations of retinol, which is clinically shown to reduce wrinkles, as well as various highly beneficial naturally-occurring UV absorbers, antioxidants and Omega-3 EFAs. It also has a natural SPF of up to 8.
Shea butter is reported to be a natural moisturizer and emollient, as well as a competent cell regenerator. It pulls moisture from the air, allowing your skin to retain extra moisture throughout the day. This also provides your skin with added elasticity, which leads to younger-looking complexion as well as reduces the appearance of stretch marks, scars and other skin blemishes.
