Michigan Winter Skin Care

Michigan Winter Skin Care

Low humidity, cold weather, winds blasting out of our neighbors to the north! All of this sets Michigan residents up for skin problems such as chapping and dryness. We have developed lip balms, lotions, foot and body butters from natural oils to nourish and soothe and take care of that irritated skin. We used tamanu, karanja and black cumin seed oil for their wonderful skin loving properties. Non nano zinc has been included for it’s skin properties and to give more protection.

Products still coming:

  • Michigan Winter Ugly Foot Butter – Our feet take a beating during the winter stuck in sweaty boots, no air or sun and drying and cracking. This butter was developed just for those abused feet.
  • Michigan Winter Body & Hand Lotion – A lighter lotion to use off and on through out your day, with goodies to enhance and protect your skin.

40% Shea Butter Bar Soap by the Loaf

SAVE $15.00!! Bathe in luxury for less $$$. Our 40% Shea Butter Bar Soap by the Loaf is an economical choice and still made with the same wonderful natural ingredients. Our Shea Butter Bar Soaps are all made by hand from base ingredients and will produce an abundant creamy lather that pampers your skin. By ordering a whole loaf of soap it cuts production & overhead costs for us so we can pass that savings on to you. A loaf of our soap produces 9 bars of soap. You can order a whole loaf of soap (9 bars = $54 if bought separately) and we will cut it so it can dry (allow 10 days to 2 weeks) before sending it out to you.

Understandable Ingredient List:

Unrefined Shea Butter - We buy shea butter that has not been refined by a heating and chemical process so it contains all of its natural goodness. The only thing we do is filter the butter to make sure it is smooth and creamy.
Water - Hydrating wonderful stuff and we use distilled water so there are no elements that would interfere with the soap making.
Coconut Oil - This wonderful oil makes the big bubble lather and contributes hardness to the bar of soap. Although all oils when made into soap clean, this one is the strongest for that quality.
Palm Oil - Makes the bar hard and provides mild cleaning soap that is more emollient. Palm oil contributes to the dense creamy lather. We buy our oil from responsible growers who have not burned down rainforests to grow palm trees.
Rice Bran Oil - This soap contributes to the dense lather and keeps the soap from stripping your skin. It is a very good oil for your skin.
Glycerin - This is a by product of making soap but is stripped out of commercial brands that are made of chemicals that do not contain glycerin at all. We leave it in and add a bit more at the end of the processing because our skin loves this stuff and finds it soothing because it draws water to the skin.
Sodium Lactate - This helps keep the soap fluid while we are making it, but as it dries it makes bar soap harder. It is actually a salt that is formed by fermentation.
Granulated Sugar - Pure bit of sweetness added which actually enhances the lather.
NaOH or Sodium Hydroxide - This is mixed with the water, sodium lactate and a bit of sugar. The NaOH mixture is then added to the melted oils and stirred over heat until the mixture thickens and becomes soap. It is left on the heat until the NaOH mixture and oils have completely becomes one which is that bubbly stuff we call soap. We now add the glycerin and just the right amount of extra oil (superfat) so that our bars are mild and gentle for all skin types. Too much of this can make the bar soap soft and cut the lather so we have to be careful not to add too much. After this the fragrance and coloring added in and the mixture is put into the soap mold. We let it cool and harden up just enough so that we can cut the bars of soap. The soap can be used at this stage but it would melt fast so after cutting the bars we put on a rack to air dry completely which takes 10-14 days.

 

Just choose a scent below and we will use a natural color to match the scent. All scents marked EO are pure natural essential oils distilled from plant material.

Base Ingredients: Ingredients: Saponified Butyrospermum Parkii (Unrefined Shea Butter), Aqua (Water), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm RSPO) Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fragrance, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, Sucrose (Cane Sugar). Color added is herbal or clay to match scent that is chosen.

Basic Body Butter

We made a basic body butter to help with our winter skin. This is so creamy and soaks into the skin for all over the body goodness to help with that nasty dry skin we suffer through each winter. Made to use on any part of our skin. This butter is made with all oils and butters that are unrefined to get the benefits of each one onto your skin. Shea, Cocoa, and Mango butters whipped up with Hemp seed oil, Sweet Almond oil, Sunflower seed oil, Avocado oil and Rice Bran oil. We didn't add anything to this to further cut costs like the big commercial companies do. No synthetics or petroleum products like petrolatum or mineral oil and we don't cut our costs by adding water. Just nature's goodness.

Then we went a step further and to keep costs down put in it a container that is very cost effective so we could pass the savings onto you.

Just choose one of the many scents we have and you are good to go!

Comes in an 8 oz. deli container that is reusable by you.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter [Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter]; Mango Butter [Mangifera Indica Seed Butter]; Rice Bran [Oryza Sativa Bran Oil]; Sunflower [Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil]; Hemp [Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil]; Almond [Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil]; Shea butter [Butyrospermum Parkii]; *Cetyl Alcohol from Coconut Oil; Vitamin E; Fragrance Of Choice.

*Cetyl Alcohol - This is actually a waxy type oil that is pulled from a plant product. In this case coconut oil. So it is an emollient and not drying and used here to make the butter hold it's whipped consistency. It is not the type of liquid alcohol that comes to mind when we see that word.
