MEL | Honey Whip
This gorgeous and uniquely formulated enzymatic, brightening, slightly astringent mask is intended to nourish and balance all skin.
We start with a base of raw honey from an apiary just outside of town. It's blended with potent plant oils with balanced fatty acid profiles to feed your skin as well as Ucuuba butter, a plant butter sustainably harvested from the South American Ucuuba tree known to treat acne and eczema, as well as dry and mature skin. High in Vitamins A, C, and E, Ucuuba helps to fight free radicals, protect against pollutants, rebuild the skin's lipid barrier, and regulate oil production.
The whole plants we've blended in are exceptionally high in Vitamin C, polyphenols, and antioxidants as well as cellular regeneration and skin repair properties. Our Aronia berries, native to North America, grow particularly well in the Pacific Northwest and are grown for us just up the road on a family-owned farm.
Plant Oils: Argan, Pomegranate, Cranberry Seed, Ucuuba Butter
Whole Botanicals: Aronia Berry, Hibiscus, Cordyceps, Gotu Kola
Essential Oils: Blood Orange, Frankincense, Carrot Seed, Peru Balsam
Suggested Ritual: Spread MEL on damp skin and gently massage into face and neck. Let it sit for as long as you desire, then rinse with a warm wash cloth and follow up with your hydrosol of choice and serum. We recommend using a spoon to scoop MEL out of the jar, but if you use your finger, make sure your hands are clean and dry.
My favorite way to use this mask is applying it right before getting in the shower or bath so the steam assists in opening up my pores and allowing the plants to deepen their magic.
Note: If the jar gets cold (as it might in shipment) it's easy to soften it by letting it sit in some warm water for a few minutes.
