Description +

Essential Oil Free


An essential oil free balm in a rich yet breathable formula.  A moisture-locking blend filled with nutrient-dense raw butters and oils plus plant-based waxes, sterols, and phospholipids.  Working in harmony to provide sanctuary for dry, sensitive conditions.

What sets this balm apart from others is the inclusion of unrefined oil-based phospholipids.  On a cellular level, the molecules attract and hold onto water while also organizing themselves into a structure similar to natural skin.  So when layered on damp skin, it creates an effective skin-identical layer.

It also helps improve the absorption of active ingredients and the delivery of sustained moisture throughout the day. Acting as a mild emulsifier to better incorporate water-based hydrating serums without causing harm to the lipid barrier.


+ Amazonian butters of murumuru, tucuma, ucuuba and bacuri are abundant in naturally occurring inflammation modulation compounds that soothe irritated skin.  Helping to maintain elasticity, a key component to healthy skin.  Raw enzymes from the butters feed the skin to better protect against hypersensitivity while the emollients soften rough, dry patches.  If the skin is damaged, the properties help repair wounds such as sun or wind-burn.

+ Buriti, graviola/soursop, and carrot seed oils (not essential oils) provide a complex array of antioxidants such as flavonoids and polyphenols to protect against cellular degradation from UV and other environmental stressors.

+ The ceramide rich rice bran wax and protective pomegranate sterols create the seal providing the final occlusive element - preventing water loss and supporting the other ingredients to improve all-over moisture. 

Has a natural, earthy scent.

*Please be aware butters in this formula have a low melting point and can melt in transit. This does not impact the product's efficacy in any way.

Size: Full Size 30 ml or Travel Size 5 ml (Travel Size packaged in Live Botanical box and amber glass branded packaging.)


Apply as the final layer in your skincare routine. For best results, ensure the skin is damp/hydrated to improve moisture function.  It can also be used as a restorative night mask by applying a thicker layer, allowing a slow absorption while you sleep. 

During warmer months or when not as dry, mix in your palm with a hydrating serum to create a day cream for a lighter application.

Best paired with the Ambient Moisture Liquid for increased hydration.

My skin loves it!

It seems a bit heavy but after it soaks in I wake up with plumped baby soft skin! This is the only thing I have tried that actually makes my skin look fresher.
