PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS SOAP
This handcrafted vegan soap is blended with 100% organic vegetable and essential oils, shea butter, prickly pear powder extract, and pink french kaolin clay. They are all small batch.
PHYTORETINOL BAKUCHIOL BEAUTY OIL
This oil is the new retinol, with soothing Rose Damask + Olive Squalane + Pomegranate Sterols + Ayurvedic botanical extracts to tackle fine lines and wrinkles, skin spots and uneven texture. It's the perfect oil for all skin types.
LILY OF THE VALLEY BODY PERFUME
