For most skin types this face balm is nourishing moisture without creating a shiny oily appearance. The Face Balm can be used as is or with added essential or fragrance oils for an incredibly moisturizing base or with added micas or oxides as a Color Balm. The hot new trend in make-up are Color Balms which can be applied to the entire face, or used on the lips or cheeks. Adding micas gives a dewy luminescence appearance. The perfect way to glow up the skin without heavy foundation and can be used for a makeup free appearance.
This clean beauty Face Balm uses olive oil esters and olive oil unsaponifiables along with coco-caprylate/caprate to deliver emollience, skin nourishment, a naturally derived dimethicone feel, and a non-greasy velvety skin sensation. These vegetable derived ingredients work as much like chemical and petrochemical ingredients such as mineral oil, dimethicone, cyclomethicone, cyclopentasiloxane, and cylohexasiloxane.
