introducing the new *matcha face moisturizer* and *prebiotic body scrubbing clay*

deliver smooth, soft skin from head to toe

They’re finally here! The matcha face moisturizer and prebiotic body scrubbing clay have just arrived and are ready to transform your skin all over.

Let’s start with the matcha face moisturizer. Ideal for those with dry or mature skin, this velvety moisturizer is brimming with powerful superfoods to deliver softness, smooth texture, and all-around more radiant skin.

Our energizing formula contains two types of green tea: matcha powder and green tea extract. Organic matcha powder, which we source from Japan, is rich in antioxidant catechins, which both repair and protect against damage and reduce the appearance of redness in skin. Green tea extract, a buttery wax derived from the surface of green tea leaves, is packed with fatty acids, which help support skin’s barrier function and seal in nutrients. They work closely together to nourish and defend skin.

This moisturizer also contains organic pomegranate oil. It’s naturally packed with punicic acid, which offers antioxidant benefits; this makes it an ideal ingredient for protecting against oxidative stress. 

This combo of ingredients helps leave skin soft, radiant, and deeply hydrated.

how do I use it?

Simply massage into skin after cleansing and toning. It can be used as a daily moisturizer for dry or mature skin, or as a restorative nighttime treatment for all other skin types.

what else is in it:

sclerocarya birrea seed oil

Fatty acid-packed marula oil nourishes the skin and provides a lightweight lipid barrier.

radish root ferment

Derived from radishes fermented with the same lactic acid used to make Korean kimchi, this natural preservative helps prevent microbial growth in our formula.

tetradecane

This vegetable-derived emollient works alongside marula oil to serve as a natural silicone alternative.

butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter

Rich in fatty acids, organic shea butter helps moisturize and improve the skin’s barrier function.

water

Good ol’ H2O serves as the liquid base of this moisturizer, acting as a solvent and improving our formula’s texture and spreadability.

glycerin

This plant-derived, soy-free humectant draws in moisture and retains it in the skin.

glyceryl stearates

This plant-derived mixture of glycerin and stearic acid, which can be found naturally in the human body, helps stabilize our formula, reduce evaporation, and prevents the oils in our moisturizer from leaving a greasy feel on skin.

caprylic/capric triglyceride

Made by combining fatty acids and glycerin, this compound helps condition the skin.

cetearyl alcohol

This plant-derived fatty alcohol helps soften skin, deliver actives, and prevent the ingredients in our moisturizer from separating. It also thickens our formula and improves spreadability.

cetearyl olivate

Derived from olive oil, this ingredient works to condition skin.

sorbitan olivate

This combination of sorbitol (a sugar) and fatty acids from olive oil helps keep our moisturizer stable.

potassium cetyl phosphate

This compound prevents our moisturizer from separating.

xanthan gum

This plant-based, FDA-approved food additive helps thicken and stabilize our formula.

sodium dehydroacetate

This baby-safe preservative prevents growth of fungi and bacteria in the formula.

Next up, let’s talk scrubbing clay.

This prebiotic scrubbing body clay isn’t your average body scrub. First of all, it features upcycled coffee grounds, which we source from a local coffee manufacturer that would otherwise toss them. These coffee grounds offer physical exfoliation, while their high caffeine content helps firm skin and improve its radiance. Chicory root extract is a prebiotic, meaning it serves as a snack for the good bacteria on skin and ultimately helps them flourish. Since exfoliation can sometimes interfere with or even damage the skin’s microbiome — leading to an overgrowth of bad, inflammation-causing bacteria — it’s important to support the growth of good bacteria and ensure a healthy microbiome. Prebiotics do just that.

Finally, like a detoxifying clay mask for your body, kaolin red clay works to clarify skin, decongest pores, and just deep-clean skin — that’s one of the reasons this formula can help with body breakouts. In this formula, these ingredients work together to soften, smooth, and balance skin in one restorative (and mess-free!) step.

how do I use it?

In the shower after cleansing, rub a quarter-sized amount of clay between your hands. Massage in circular motions all over your body to slough away dead skin, then rinse off residual polish. Use up to 3x a week.

*Optional: leave on for two minutes as a body mask before rinsing! This is particularly helpful on breakout-prone areas.

water

H2O serves as the liquid base of this scrub, acting as a solvent and improving our formula’s texture and spreadability.

This natural skin-conditioning compound, derived from olive fruits, replaces silicone in our scrubbing clay.

stearic acid

This fatty acid supports your skin’s barrier function, while also thickening and stabilizing our formula.

glyceryl stearate SE

This plant-derived mixture of glycerin and stearic acid, which can be found naturally in the human body, helps stabilize our formula, reduce evaporation, and allows for residue-free rinse-off.

cetyl alcohol

This plant-derived fatty alcohol helps soften skin, deliver actives, and prevent the ingredients in our formula from separating. It also thickens our formula and improves spreadability.
