Winter Moisture Trio: three formulations for highly moisturizing natural beauty products.

It’s safe to say that 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. With the pandemic still causing uncertainty globally, consumers are craving comfort, now more than ever. Many beauty practices that were taking place in the salon are happening from the comfort of home, and as the winter months approach, consumers will flock to their favorite brands for help with dry skin and hair.

Use the following formulations from our Winter Moisture Trio to inspire your line of winter care products and encourage your customers to create healthy self-care rituals that will keep their skin and hair moisturized and protected during the colder months. 

These formulations focus on all three areas that need winter protection: hair, body, and face. We used highly nourishing oils that are packed with antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and tocopherols. With all three of these products, you’ll find that a little bit goes a long way, making them necessary beauty staples that could last all winter long.

Winter Hair Serum

Natural hair care serums with hair brush

Our Organic Kalahari Melon is the star ingredient in this liquid serum, supported by Organic High Oleic Safflower Oil and Organic Natural Jojoba Oil. Kalahari Melon Seed oil is showing up in many trendy beauty products on the market, and with good reason: this remarkable oil boasts an impressive 70% linoleic acid (omega-6 essential fatty acid) content and is an excellent source of natural tocopherols. 

As a finishing touch, we used a calming blend of Patchouli and Lavender Essential Oils in this serum, but you can also substitute with any of our Essential Oils, CO2 Extracts, Plant-Based Fragrance Oils, or Fragrance Oils.

Winter Hair Serum Formulation

Procedure

  1. Combine Phase A in your container.
    We used our 2 oz. PET Cosmo Round Bottles With Disc Caps.
  2. Shake well to blend ingredients. 

Application

Three ways in which this serum may be used:

  1. Add a few drops of the oil to your palms and massage into dry hair, starting with the tips working up to the scalp.
  2. Work a few drops into wet hair as an after-shower hair conditioner.
  3. Gently heat the oil bottle in a warm water bath for 5 minutes to create a hot oil treatment. Leave on for 20 minutes, then wash and style as usual.

Winter Body Balm

Natural body balm and natural ingredients

This all-over body balm offers deep moisture to dry and weary winter skin. Our premium Calabash Oil and Organic Calendula Extract blend with substantial butter and natural beeswax to create a luxurious balm that glides on the skin with ease. Not only is our Calabash Oil packed with 78% skin-loving essential fatty acids, but it is also ethically and sustainably sourced, lending a positive story to any product that includes this unique ingredient.

We blended our Frankincense CO2 Select Extract with Organic Bergamot Essential Oil to create a warm, bright, and slightly citrusy scent that complements this balm perfectly. We used Deodorized Cocoa Butter for this formulation, but the irresistible chocolatey scent of our Organic Cocoa Butter also pairs surprisingly well with this essential oil blend.

Winter Facial Serum

Natural facial serum

The last of our Winter Moisture Trio is perhaps our favorite. We focused on using ingredients that will keep skin looking vibrant and smooth all winter long. Most importantly, these lightweight oils will not clog your pores or leave skin feeling greasy.

The key ingredient in this serum is Tomato Seed CO2 Total Extract. Rich in lycopene, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this oil is an exceptional choice for delicate facial skin that needs some extra protection. 

We blended oils of Myrrh, Frankincense, and Clary Sage to imbue a warm, seasonal aroma to this serum–however, you may wish to leave these out and let the mellow, fruity aroma of the Tomato Seed Oil shine through.
