Did you know that soap isn’t just used to keep our bodies clean? Soap is also used in textile making and is a key ingredient in many lubricating greases. We think it’s funny that one of the main things you need soap for (to wash off grease) has soap already in it!
Shea Butter, the moisturizing ingredient in our lip balm is made from the nut of the African Shea Tree. The nut is cracked, roasted and then ground into a paste to remove the oils which are great moisturizers and absorb quickly into skin.
Lip gloss was invented in the 1930s so that film-actresses would have shiny lips in Hollywood movies. Ours will help make your lips shiny and bright whether you’re in the movies or not!
Even though our Bath Fizzie’s formula is a secret, we feel safe letting you know that it’s made up of a mix of normal baking soda (Calcium Carbonate) and citric acid (just like in lemons). Once the two ingredients mix in water, the baking soda effervesces, which means it releases bubbles.
The reason our hair chalk is so vibrant and shimmery is because we use mica in them. Mica is made from a mineral called Muscovite that breaks up into thin flakes that look a lot like glitter. When ground up, these flakes work like glitter too, reflecting light and giving things a shimmery look.
Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? Like your heart or lungs, your skin is essential to keeping you safe and alive. It serves as a kind of armour to keep the outside out and the inside in, its nerves let you sense the world around you with your sense of touch, it regulates your temperature through sweat and the dilation of your blood vessels and it helps you breathe by absorbing oxygen and other gases. It does all this and more, so make sure you protect it!
Face painting is one of humanity’s oldest forms of self-expression. There is evidence that even Neanderthals who lived from 300,000 to 35,000 years ago had tools to paint their faces!
