The sun melted my moisturizer...?

melted moisturizer

'Tis the season.. for salty hair, beach curls, glowing skin... and melting Moisturizer? 😜 If your Moisturizer arrived to you looking like that photo, don't panic just yet, you're in good company.

Before I tell you how to fix your Moisturizer, though, I want to tell you about something I stumbled upon last week...

I was online and came across a facial cream that was $260 for 1.7 ounces. Yes, people pay this much for face cream. And yes, there are even more expensive creams out there that people also pay for. Of course, the first thing I wanted to know was: what "miraculous ingredients" are in this moisturizer?

Now, I really, really wish I could say I was surprised when I looked over the ingredients and saw that it was mostly water, alcohol and wax. But, I wasn't surprised. Why?? Because I see it every day.

Almost all moisturizers are comprised of mostly water with a bit of oils emulsified by wax, filled with binders to keep it from separating, and finally formulated with preservatives to keep the aqueous (water-based) substance from growing bacteria.

I'm not kidding when I say that this same said moisturizer contained several well-known carcinogens. Yes, people are paying $260 every 4 weeks to put cancer-causing water and wax onto their skin. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I digress...

The good news? Our moisturizers are made without water, wax, preservatives or stabilizers, which means only nutrient-rich ingredients make it to your skin.

It also means in extreme temperatures, your Moisturizer may arrive to you melted. If you experience this, just give your Moisturizer a good, vigorous shake and pop it in the freezer until it solidifies (usually between 30 minutes and an hour). Take it out and it'll be as good as new.

Keep your Moisturizer stored at room temperature away from direct sunlight to maintain consistency. It's a little more work but we promise it's better than buying carcinogenic water and wax. πŸ€—
