Salves and balms are usually made with oils, as opposed to lotions which are made with water. We are of the belief that oils penetrate the skin layers faster and have longer effectiveness. Did you know that European women, especially those in the Mediterranean, use olive oil directly on their skin, nothing else? And have you seen their skin? WOW. Asian women, too, have a very simple skin care regimen that involves oils and serums. Our Happy Face moisturizer is made from the most highly recommended oils for the face - grapeseed oil, avocado oil, apricot kernel oil, and carrot seed oil. And that's all we use. These oils are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins and will create lasting benefits for your face and neck.
