Seabuckthorn All Over Lotion - Body & Face
One application will make you feel completely immersed in soothed and smoothed skin. This replenishing lotion is moisturising enough for the body yet balancing enough for sensitive facial skin. Each opulent ingredient is selected for its strong skin affinity, combining the most effective elements found in botany. Throw in omega fatty acids, and hundreds of bioactive compounds and you hold moisturizing marvel in the palm of your hand.
This lovely lotion begins with crystalline spring water to which we add wholesome Jojoba for moisture, timeless tamanu for the love of lipids, satiating Seabuckthorn, seaweed to boost elasticity, Aloe Vera to hydrate and ancient acacia to soothe and fuse.
We then invite into the fold five herbal infusions with stories untold. While Marshmallow Root moistens, Slippery Elm silkifies skin and Chamomile calms and balances, cheerful chickweed infusion soothes skin that is drier than the desert, while Rose Hips moisturise, harmonise and oh-so-much-more. Essential essences of Lavender, Vetiver, Grapefruit and Palmarosa encourage elasticity to advance the appearance of smooth, hydrated skin while supercritical extracts of Rosemary and Sage boost stability and bioactive compounds.
Directions: Apply as an emollient to add moisture to dry skin from head to toe. Whenever your skin's feeling thirsty, massage this lotion into any area that needs satiation – elbows, knees, hands, feet, you name it! Add to your facial moisturising regimen as well for a radiant and supple face. For desert dry areas, or if winter dryness has you withered, combine with a squirt with our Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever to further hydrate heels, elbows and parched patches.

This beneficial and ancient ingredient also helps to join spring water with lipids in this lovely lotion.

Seaweed protects the skin layers from environmental irritants, may fade or reverse wrinkles, and is used to give the skin a healthy glow.
