our cleansing balm was clinically tested and none of the participants experienced any allergic reactions.  

yes! but as with any new product, we always recommend performing a patch test. apply a very small amount to one of the softer areas of your skin. observe for 12-24 hours. if no irritation or redness develops you are good to go!

our cleansing balm is 99.97% natural. however, we use a teeny tiny amount of iron
oxide to give it its blush hue.

yes, it is FDA approved for food grade as well as cosmetics. iron oxide in cosmetics is made synthetically. natural iron oxides cannot be used as color additives for cosmetics and personal care products in the US because it is much easier to control trace levels of heavy metals in a synthetically produced mineral than it is in a naturally mined mineral.

oils & aromatics.

derived ingredients.

our cleansing balm contains coconut oil. The AmericanCollege of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) states: “Coconut is not a botanical nut; it is classified as a fruit, even though the Food and Drug Administration recognizes coconut as a tree nut. while allergic reactions to coconut have been documented, most people who are allergic to tree nuts can safely eat coconut. If you are allergic to tree nuts, talk to your allergist before adding coconut to your diet." 

our cleansing balm contains tamanu oil. research suggests contact with tamanu oil may cause allergic reactions in some people. if you are allergic to tree nuts, talk to your allergist about using tamanu oil topically, since it's derived from a kind of tree nut.
