100% Certified Organic Beauty Products: Babassu Oil from Brazil
If you haven't tried the Inara (Wild Earth Inc.) line of 100% certified organic products made with Babassu oil yet, you've been missing out!
Brazilian women have used Babassu oil for hundreds of years to keep their skin soft, smooth, and beautiful. Babassu oil derived from the Babassu palm kernel native to Brazil, is the signature ingredient in Inara's line of 100% organic beauty care products. The Babassu oil is combined with essential oils to create three different signature fragrances: Enliven, Ignite, and Quiet--each with their own attributes based on the mix of essential oils.
Babassu oil natural skin care products are well suited to the bath so that's where I tested three of them one day last week. While drawing the bath, I lit the Amaté Bark Lantern Candle that was also included in the sample kit. The candle is made from beeswax and essential oils of frankincense, sandalwood, chamomile and sweet orange encased in Amaté bark paper. The delicate scent really helped set the tone for this experience.
I poured several drops of the Babassu Bath & Body Oil into the water, swirled it around, and then stepped into the tub where I soaked for a few minutes before trying the Babassu Sugar Rub on a couple of rough patches of skin--namely my hands, knees, elbows, and feet. I soon discovered the Babassu Sugar Rub was gentle enough to use on my face as well.
When I stepped out of the tub my skin was definitely silky and very aromatic. I applied the Babassu Body Crème to the same rough spots I had tested the Sugar Rub out on. Amazingly it melted into my skin right away leaving it feeling smooth, and once again, quite fragrant. My normally dry skin was definitely enjoying all the attention.
The Bath & Body Oil is made from soybean, babassu, and grapefruit oils, along with rosemary leaf extract, and essential oils of geranium, mandarin, and sage. The Sugar Rub is made from the same ingredients, plus raw sugar (ingredient #1), and Babassu is listed before soybean oil for this product. The Body Crème is made with olive, palm, and Babassu oils along with beeswax, rosemary leaf extract and essential oils of grapefruit, bergamot, and jasmine with a just a touch of honey.
Mmmmm….Need I say more? This is one bathing experience I won't be forgetting anytime soon.
