Handcrafted, All Natural, Simple, Pure
Skin care with a conscience!
Summer's Skin was born in a small kitchen, looking to create skin care for dry skin in a desert environment. The first step was a solid lotion bar that healed cracked heels and scaly legs, from there lotions, body butters and lip balms evolved. I wanted skin care that worked without water, alcohols, chemicals, things that in the end dried my skin out more than healed and moisturized.
As I continued the creative process and decided to offer my skin care to others I knew I wanted to do so right, I may have supplies that were global, but I wanted to shop local and with the highest quality. My honey and beeswax come from our local beekeeper, I finish the processing of the beeswax in house. It retains a beautiful light brown (Honey) color without the bleaching of commercial beeswax, and gives a golden hue to our products. Our oils are purchased from a small company that imports plants globally from very select all natural growers, using a cold press or steam process only, no additives, fillers etc. just the highest quality grade A oils. For our butters I looked and found co-ops organized around and by the women who actually produce the product in Ghana and Costa Rica. I may buy global products, but do so locally!
As you use our products remember there are no additives to them, water, alcohol and chemical "dryers" are not added. It takes a very small amount of product and it will melt into your skin as it is absorbed by the skin, not at the rate of water, alcohol and drying agents evaporating off of your skin. It will leave your skin with antioxidants, vitamins and protection that are minimal in the "Store bought" products of today.
Here is our beautiful beeswax after processing, notice the beautiful golden brown hue similar to honey still present in the wax. Our beeswax is never processed with bleaching agents or other chemical processes like most of the commercial beeswax available. By not over-processing the beeswax we leave in the natural properties of the beeswax for the healing, moisturizing, and protection for your skin.
Our Shea, Cocoa and Mango butters are pure and of the highest quality. By working directly with the producers in Ghana and Costa Rica we are able to obtain butters that retain all the natural goodness for our products.
As you use our products you will smell the nuttiness and sweetness of our butters. Shea has a light nutty smell, Cocoa the scent of a chocolate bar and our Mango is slightly sweet and fruity.
The purity of our butters allow them to melt into your skin and bring all of their goodness, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and moisture to you.
