Q. Your products contain Hemp Oil. Will this show up positive on a drug test?
A. No. Our products are made from hemp seed oil which contain no traces of THC. THC is the ingredient in cannabis that gets you high and that will show up positive on a drug test.
Q. Do any of your skin care products have preservatives?
A. No. We make all of our products with natures ingredients. We don't add artificial fragrance, dyes, alcohol, preservatives or any other chemical. The ingredients in our products contain their own natural preservatives to protect them from bacteria.
Q. What is the difference between a lotion and butter?
A. Lotions are made with water, creams are made with water but not as much as lotions. Butters contain no water. When ever you add water to a product you take the risk of introducing bacteria. So companies that make body lotions and creams use preservatives to protect their products and giving them extended shelf life.
Q. How long will your products stay good?
A. Our butters, scrubs should be good up to a year, oils longer and toners up to 6 months. We hope that nobody holds on to their their skin care products for a whole year. For any skin care product to be effective, you have to use it on a regular basis. Don't buy it, use it and store it away.
Q. How can I care for my skin care products?
A. Do not place any of the products in the direct sun, keep them in a cool place. If butters melt, just stir, place in the refrigerator until it firms then remove. Toners can also be refrigerated. Under no circumstances allow water to enter the butter or scrubs. This is why we provide a small container for your scrubs to take into the shower with you. This will keep water and moisture from entering your main scrub jar.

Q. How do I use a scrub?
A. First thing you do when you open the jar you want to make sure the scrub is mixed thoroughly before each use. Take the spoon we provide and stir the scrub until the sugars or salts are combined with the oils.
You can use the scrub in the shower, bath or sink. Always place the amount of scrub you are going to use in the container we provide. Place the lid back on the main scrub jar. This will prevent water or moisture from entering the main jar. Apply water to skin. Scoop out a little scrub into your hand, using the portioning spoon we include with your purchase and rub onto your wet skin. Scrub gently until you feel the sugar melt and then rinse off. Your skin will feel amazingly smooth.
