SATYA IS MADE WITH ONLY FIVE WHOLE INGREDIENTS. SIMPLE, NATURAL AND EFFECTIVE.
WE NEVER ADD FRAGRANCE AND ARE CERTIFIED ORGANIC.
BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING ON YOUR SKIN
Calendula officinalis, also known as pot marigold, has been used for centuries on chapped skin, burns, insect bites and bee stings, rashes, and other irritations of the skin. This versatile botanical is also gentle enough to use on children and animals.
We do not use extracts for our calendula either. We infuse pounds and pounds of actual flower petals directly into our oils.
By using organic flowers, Satya supports organic farmers and bees. Bees that are vital to our lives and our economy as pollinators of our food supply. Besides who wants chemicals on their flowers OR on their skin?
Sweet almond oil is high in vitamin E, zinc and is a natural anti-inflammatory. It also softens and helps skin retain it's natural moisture. However, not all almond oil is the same.
In the US, since 2007, all non organic almonds are sprayed with a chemical called PPO (propylene oxide). PPO is a suspected carcinogen and in fact, most countries, including the EU, ban imported nuts treated with PPO. It is so nasty that it was banned for use as a fuel additive.
Our certified organic sweet almond oil is from steam pasteurized almonds. No engine fuel, pesticides, GMO, or similar poisons. Certified organic is the only way to go.
Beeswax protects and moisturizes the skin and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits. Also, almonds are also 100% dependent on bees for pollination. Hardly makes sense to kill off vital partners in creating Satya Skin Care does it? No to neonicotinoids!
Jojoba closely resembles our skin's own natural oils and is high in antioxidants. Jojoba is also an anti inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and great moisturizer. Although I could not find a specific reason for going organic with the jojoba, I believe it is better to be safe and go 100% organic and all natural.
Organic Colloidal Oatmeal
They are also rich in saponins, which are chemical compounds found in plants. These saponins give oatmeal cleansing, moisturizing and soothing qualities that are wonderfully nourishing. *We specifically buy GLUTEN FREE oats.
And a few words on the packaging:Why glass - Glass is inert. It won't change over time, leaching nasties into your product.
Why a metal lid - It's called a lug lid. It's air tight, and easily comes off with a 1/4 turn.
Our labels and boxes - are made from 100% post consumer waste fiber. The paper manufacturer offsets 100% of its electricity with wind power renewable energy credits. It is chlorine free, FSC Certified and created by Woman Owned Business Enterprise.
Our inks - all soy and/or vegetable based.
*and why not Canadian organic labeling you ask? Turns out they don't certify skincare with Canadian organic labelling, however I received my USDA certification papers through a Canadian agency.
** Those with tree nut allergies should consult a doctor before using any almond products.
