Extracts Included
Aloe Extract: The formulation contains a high percentage of Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, which is known to protect skin without leaving a greasy layer. Aloe also contains various antioxidants.
Carrot Seed Extract: Contains regenerating and toning properties which are excellent for mature and congested skin. The extract is also rich in Vitamin A, which helps keep your skin looking smoother by aiding in hydrating it.
Grape Seed Extract: Antioxidants protect cells from unstable molecules that can cause damage to healthy cells on the skin and in the body, according to the National Cancer Institute. Two of the most famous antioxidants are vitamins E and C. Grape Seed Extract contains several plant compounds, including oligomeric proanthocyanidins, or OPCs. OPCs are powerful antioxidants and according to a report from the Food Research Center in Guelph, Canada, OPCs in Grape Seed Extract contain 20 times the antioxidant power of vitamin E and 50 times the antioxidant power of vitamin C.
Pomegranate Seed Extract: Carries excellent skin care properties including fantastic moisturizing properties. By promoting hydration, the extract delivers a powerful anti-aging effect as it helps the skin retain moisture and maintain proper hydration.
Algae Extract: Known to increase surface hydration. Thanks to its water-binding properties, algae extract supports other moisturizing factors and contains vital trace elements for the skin such as Iron, Zinc, Magnesium, Copper, and Silicon - which are imperative to the metabolic processes of the skin.
What else is inside?
Other non-oily ingredients which are excellent for the face have been included
Saccharide Complex (Derived from Apples): An ingredient with an impressive efficacy record that increases skin hydration by 88%. We love this ingredient because not only it is natural but, unlike glycerin, it will not increase tackiness.

C-12-15 Alkyl Benzoate: A non-toxic, non-comedogenic ingredient which provides light conditioning and is a great oil free moisturizer.

Polyglyceryl 3-Diiosostearate: Aids in emulsifying and helps stabilize secretion of sebum.

Linoleic Acid and Linolenic Acid (omega 3/omega 6 vitamin blend): A long chain fatty acid required for healthy skin that cannot be synthesized by our bodies.

We do our best to use natural plant derived ingredients whenever possible. This formula is vegan friendly and is 90% natural; It contains no parabens or known formaldehyde donors. While it is classified as "odorless" a very slight smell from the natural ingredients may be detectable.

This base can be customized with even more extracts or peptides to increase its' effectiveness. However, we recommend testing percentages first before committing to a full batch, as some additives may change the viscosity and color. Click here to take a look at the raw materials we offer.

When scenting facial formulations, we recommend starting at .30% and going no higher than .60%. It is important to note that the skin on the face is very delicate. Should you choose to scent at .60%, those with sensitive skin run the risk of irritation, especially around the eyes.

While this formula is intensely hydrating and moisturizing, the formulation was developed for day and night use on face and neck and is therefore not as thick as a standard nighttime face cream.

Paraben Free Satin Skin
If you love the original hand and body moisturizing lotion base, you will fall in love with this one. It is very emollient without being greasy. It left my skin silky smooth, soft and moisturized. Believe me, I am a tough grader but I give this one an A.

No Comparison!
As a licensed Esthetician, I have been asked numerous times where I purchased this lotion. It is the only one I use and the only one that my clients and friends ask for. I will always have a gallon on hand, because I, myself use it 4-5 times a day. Thank you, Essentials!!
