Ethical Body Butter


A few weeks ago I made an amazing batch of body butter using a few new ingredients after much research. I was hesitant to talk about the new body butter as I use myself as a Guiney pig to test out all my products. I feel that if I cant use it on my sensitive skin and my son’s  even more sensitive skin then I can’t sell it.  These new indigents help to make up our new Ethical Body Butter. All the ingredients used are certified organic and Fair Trade. We stand by this guarantee as we believe in fair wages, sustainable living, equal opportunity for everyone and a childfree workforce. The same tried and true ingredients stayed the same, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E oil. but the new ingredients are amazing and are as followings:

-Kokum Butter:  Kokum is indegious to India Aids in skin regeneration and is often used as a substitute of cocoa butter. Kokum is a harder butter which doesn’t work too well on it’s own part of the reason we incorporate it into our recipe. Kokum’s main usage is for dry, cracked and hard skin.

  • dry skin therapy

– Aloe Vera Butter:

Aloe butter is an extract of aloe vera, aloe barbadensis, in a coconut fatty fraction. It is solid at room temperature, but melts on the skin. Can be used for dry skin and moisturizing after sun exposure. Helps to repair sunburns and soothes skin ailments.

Hazelnut oil is a lightweight oil ideal for oily skin, and said to be appropriate for acne-prone skin as well. Has astringent qualities to it, and said to be easily absorbed into the skin. High in essential fatty acids, more so in oleic than linoleic. Its skin tightening qualities can allow it to be used as a toner, it can help strengthen capillaries and regenerate cells, and is said to have potential UV filter capabilities.

staying on top of things


Blogging as we all know is a tough job! it’s tough to keep yourself motivated to post interesting content at all times. How do you fellow bloggers do it? I find myself posting quite a bit to my other social media networks such as instagram and Twitter. And as a result neglecting my other blogs.  Do you believe that the face of blogging is changing? And maybe we are leaning more towards “140 characters” or less and more frequent updates, and a picture is worth a thousand words? Rather than updating our blogs such as wordpress and blogger?  I’m curious to know how all the bloggers out there remain revelant and up to date with the changing stream of social media.

Thanks!

Spring is in the air


I love Vancouver when the streets are damp and coloured pink by a sea of evenly fallen cherry blossoms. There is a certain stillness, a certain calmness as if you’re the only one experiencing this beauty. I can get lost in these blossoms forever.

Sketching on Plexi


My work was throwing out plexi glass, from a window display so I took a few pieces home and decided to sketch on them. This is the result.

“Lately, I’ve been loosing sleep!”


For the past couple of weeks I can’t seem to get into the right head space creatively. I’ve even tried meditation, but nothing.. I don’t understand what’s causing this blockage. But I’ve started exercises, like forcing myself to draw, read, brainstorm ideas for projects. The result of which is I’m up all night trying to get my brain to stop. Wind down a little. But still producing no real work. Very frustrating
