      Full Ingredient List:
      Key Botanical Ingredients:

      Rich in nutrients, coconut also has high levels of vitamin C, which helps maintain skin elasticity & flexibility. 
      Abundant in copper, it also helps prevent crepey skin & pesky pigmentation. 
      It smooths, softens & brightens!

      Papaya
      Papaya, so lovely & sweet, yet so powerful & exotic. Not only are Papaya Enzymes the source for our Probiotic, we also make use of Papaya Oil, which promotes cell regeneration & fights pigmentation!

      It has antioxidant, anti aging, anti acne, & anti dermatitic properties, meaning it is just lovely for your skin...& pits!

      Calendula
      Calendula has been historically used by those who came before us to calm & soothe skin, as well as repair damage done by that nasty inflammation. 
      Rich in flavonoids & saponins, Calendula can help promote healing, prevent tissue degeneration & protect the skin from free-radicals.

      Aloe 
      Aloe is just fabulous! It has been used topically since ancient times for its skin soothing properties. 
      It is full of vitamins, minerals, & anti inflammatory compounds, making it an ideal ingredient for any skin type.

      Candelilla Wax 
      100% plant wax that provides a hardness to make our Pit Petioles™ easy to use without the mess. 
      We also choose this plant wax because it is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores!
      It's also a rich source of Vitamin A, which helps promote cell regeneration!

      Diatomaceous Earth 
      Ancient fossils of mineral-rich algae help neutralize odor & absorb excess moisture. 
      Diatomaceous Earth works to draw out toxins & heavy metals from the body, ridding us of harmful elements.
      It is also found in abundance & so lovingly sustainable due to the fact that it is constantly regenerating & clearing out carbon dioxide in our atmosphere!
