A creamy, velvety facial oil that hydrates, softens, and smoothes the skin without a heavy or oily feel. Hand-extracted, cold-press, unrefined babassu oil from Brazil plays a key role with its light and powdery feel, meltability on contact with the skin, and powerful redness- and dryness-reducing properties. This unique oil-butter heals and soothes, relieves itching or other discomfort, and also has gentle antibacterial properties (appropriate for acne-prone or pore-clogging-prone skin types).
Lightly scented with fresh white and pink lotus anchored by Haitian vetiver. Hints of forest-honey-like, delicate mimosa and nutty virgin babassu oil are balanced with subtle undertones from tobacco absolute (derived from the leaves and processed to be nicotine free), which lends a complex, leathery, moist-sweet natural fragrance and has grounding aromatherapy benefits.

This product is good for:
Shake periodically to remix. Massage a few drops or more into freshly cleansed, moist skin day and night. Use alone or over a facial oil primer—an aloe-based primer will merge with the oil and facilitate its absorption. Use more if you feel drier and less if your skin is moderately dry (oily zones can be omitted entirely). This serum can be used on the face, neck, décolleté, and under eyes. Store away from direct light exposure to protect the unrefined oils from light.

Hand-extracted, cold-press, unrefined babassu oil from Brazil, with its light and powdery feel, "dry butter" consistency, meltability on contact with the skin, and powerful redness- and dryness-reducing properties. This unique oil-butter heals and soothes, relieves itching or other discomfort, and also has gentle antibacterial properties, rendering it non comedogenic (appropriate for acne-prone or pore-clogging-prone skin types).
Babassu oil is also often described as slightly cooling, and this quality makes this ingredient perfect for a range of inflammatory skin conditions, from eczema to rosacea and psoriasis. It minimizes pores and decreases puffiness.
Brazil nut oil, with its exceptionally high linoleic acid content, is highly beneficial for the care of wrinkled, mature, neglected, and dry to very dry skin. It is also rich in vitamins E, A, B, and C as well as many minerals, especially selenium. It nourishes on a deeper level and improves firmness, and helps the skin to recover its healthy coloring over time.
Sacha inchi from Chile is highly praised for its skin compatibility and high content of Omega 3s. It is a thinner oil that is very hydrating and wrinkle reducing. Sacha inchi provides a high moisture factor, complementing the emollient and skin-tissue-healing components of Magical Babassu.
Pracaxi pod oil is a sacred healing oil known in the Amazon rainforest as “jungle suture” because it regenerates and repairs skin tissue powerfully and quickly. It improves the appearance of scars and is anti-acne.
The formula also includes a tiny amount of Fair Trade shea butter from West Africa. Totally unrefined and hand-extracted, it feels more powdery than oily, and penetrates dry skin well to soften it, improve its elasticity, repair damage, and protect from environmental factors like sun damage.
The consistency of Magical Babassu will range from almost liquid to semi-solid depending on your ambient temperature.
