Clean beauty - Meet the ingredients

At Happi Body Co, there are 3 core values.

1. Clean ingredients choices matter. I use ingredients that are natural and clean. 

2. Clean packaging choices matter. Containers and packaging must be as planet friendly as possible.

3. Clean business motives matter. This means promotion of the importance of a positive self image and avoidance of cliches used by the mainstream beauty industry that prey on insecurities about how we look. 

This page goes into more information about clean ingredient choices. But first, why plant based skincare?  Plant oils and our skin oils share many of the same fatty acids.  You could say they naturally complement each other. Mineral oils, like you find in synthetic skincare, do not have fatty acid counterparts in our skin. You could say they don't naturally complement each other.  Plant oils interact with our skin; they compliment and supplement any deficiencies.  Mineral oils coat our skin like cling film.  I know what I'd choose.

So, let's introduce you to some of the ingredient team.

BISABOLOL

INCI: Bisabolol. A constituent of chamomile essential oil. It helps to soothe and calm things down.

SAFFLOWER OIL

INCI: Carthamus Tinctorius oil. Feeds your skin. A great natural source of vitamin E and linoleic acid, necessary for maintaining healthy skin barrier function.

SEA BUCKTHORN FRUIT OIL

Cupuacu butter

CUPUACU BUTTER

Mango seed butter

MANGO BUTTER

INCI: Mandifera Indica Seed butter.  A lovely, dry feel, skin softening butter. Melts into the skin quickly and doesn't leave an oily residue.  Reputed to lessen wrinkles (if you care about that sort of thing).

Sweet orange essential oil

SWEET ORANGE ESSENTIAL OIL

INCI: Citrus Aurantium Dulcis.  In feng shui philosophy, the scent of oranges can bring happy and life affirming energy. In the world of aromatherapy, it is said to encourage feelings of joy.

Lavender essential oil

INCI: Lavandula Augustifolia. Used for its uplifting aroma but has reputed antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties.

 Cocoa butter

Polyglyceryl-4 oleate

Polyglyceryl-4 oleate

This is one of the two naturally derived emulsifiers in the cleansing melts. It helps to remove the melt from your skin without leaving it feeling heavy.  It is made from sunflower oil and is both skin friendly and PEG free.
