The inspiration for our signature product, FACE FOOD came from my frustration with the expensive price of moisturizers and the long list of ingredients they have. After tinkering in my kitchen with the ingredients and experimenting on my friends for 18 months, FACE FOOD was finally ready to sell! It launched in May of 2012 and over 200 were sold the first month just in my local community. Apparently it really appeals to a lot of people who care about naturally nourishing their skin! Visit the Testimonials Page for comments about FACE FOOD. Since then, we have added several more products which we know you will enjoy!
As a nutritionist I am not only concerned with what people eat, but also with what they put on their skin. Many of the chemicals in lotions do not belong inside the body; however they soak through the skin into the bloodstream. That’s why I have formulated products that are made from nutritious ingredients We keep our products simple, which helps minimize the risk of skin sensitivities.
Because our products are made from natural ingredients they are not intended to have a long shelf life, so they are sold in small containers. The 1.5 oz. container of FACE FOOD is about a two months’ supply. Keep it refrigerated just until you are ready to start using it. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for several months. Due to the nature of the coconut oil, the thickness of our creams will change depending on the temperature at which they are kept.
