Protective balm for very dry skin

Boasting a buttery, creamy, delicate texture, Isadora offers outstanding hydrating, conditioning, emollient, and protective qualities for very dry skin or for facial protection from harsh winds and cold. 

The Isadora Balm was created without any potentially pore-clogging waxes, and has a fine, delicate, slightly powdery but still juicy texture. This balm delivers deep and lasting moisture, a dose of antioxidants, and protective qualities from a wealth of ultra-effective plant oils and butters.

Skincare Benefits:

+ Shea butter: A hand-extracted, unrefined, undeodorized shea butter that comes from Ghana and smells smoky, yet also woody. Because shea butter does not become fully absorbed, but remains on the surface of the skin, it offers lasting protection from moisture loss and from harsh wintry or windy weather.    

+ Tomato seed oil: An especially effective oil for dry and mature skin, tomato seed oil dramatically improves the appearance of wrinkled, sun-damaged, dull, or neglected skin. It contains protective carotenoids (lycopene, zeaxanthin) and vitamin E, and has a delightfully creamy texture. 

+ Baobab seed oil: Sustainably sourced, this thick oil is indispensable for alleviating very dry skin. Baobab seed oil is rich in vitamins E, D, and F, and also contributes firming and pore-minimizing properties.  

+ Prickly pear seed oil: Sourced from a certified organic grower in Morocco.  This noncomedogenic oil is high in vitamin E and linoleic acid, has a fine, silky texture, and is very promptly absorbed by the skin. 

+ Moringa seed oil: Unrefined moringa oil smells of freshly picked, homegrown string beans, so perhaps unsurprisingly, this superfood oil is as healthy for our skin as fresh vegetables are for our diet. The moringa leaf is used in Ayurveda as a tonic and detoxifier. The oil is thick and dry, contains a plethora of vitamins and minerals, and hydrates the skin. It also helps to extend the shelf life of the balm. 

+ Copaiba balsam resin: This cold-press, wildcrafted resin is a traditional herbal medicine in the Amazon region, revered for its antiseptic and pain-relieving properties. In skincare, copaiba offers powerful long-term skin-firming effects, anti-inflammatory soothing properties, and protection against acne breakouts. 

+ Vitamin C: A relatively low percentage of oil-soluble active vitamin C is included in the form of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate.  A low-percentage oil-soluble vitamin C is very well tolerated by those with sensitive or dry skin, and still delivers results. With daily, consistent use of this face balm, you can expect to see a brightening effect from the vitamin C, as well as a reduction in skin discoloration.

+ Carrot seed oil: One of leading aromatherapist Valerie Ann Worwood's top recommended oils for mature and wrinkled skin. It also benefits skin types with psoriasis or eczema. 

Skin Type Recommendations: For all skin types, especially dry to very dry and with eczema or psoriasis.

Color and Texture:​ A buttery, creamy, delicate texture. 

A pale opaque yellow with a hint of green. 

Scent: ​Starts with a base of fresh yet smoky shea butter, which is elevated by high notes of Tunisian orange blossom, green and subdued Moroccan Rose de Mai, pink lotus from India, invigorating citrus leaf, and marzipan-like ambrette. Overall, the scent is light and is designed to dissipate quickly. 

Size: Full Size 30 ml / 1 fl oz or Trial Size 6 ml / 0.2 fl oz (Trial Size packaged in Earthwise Beauty miron glass branded packaging.)

Application+

Massage into freshly cleansed skin day and night.  It's particularly recommended to use Isadora as a nighttime nourishing and protective balm-mask. Massage a relatively generous amount into the skin thirty minutes to one hour before bedtime using outward circular motions. If using for daytime for very dry skin or as a means of protection from wind and cold, follow with a mattifying foundation, tinted moisturizer, or face powder.
