Dry Skin Love Signature Aroma
Vanilla Bean. Virgin Coconut. Dark Patchouli.
Dry Skin Love signature aroma starts with extra virgin coconut oil, triple-infused with whole vanilla bean, chamomile and calendula. We then add a hint of dark patchouli, resulting in a rich, creamy decadent aroma.
Luxurious. Comforting. Sensual.
Vanilla Bean: warm, sweet, comforting
Vanilla bean (Vanilla planifolia) is rich, warm, sweet and complex, with soft notes of spice and hints of tobacco.
We only use whole vanilla bean extracts. We do not use isolated or synthetic vanillin, because vanillin on its own is pretty, but lifeless.
Real vanilla is expensive, but so worth it. When you smell the real stuff, you feel it- it literally stops time and makes your eyes roll back in pleasure. It is indeed an aphrodisiac.
Vanilla is also an antioxidant and can protect your skin against free radical damage.
We use organic Bourbon Vanilla Beans from Madagascar.
We use 2 types of vanilla bean to achieve our aroma:
Organic Whole Vanilla Bean
Organic Vanilla Bean CO2 Extract
We take whole organic bourbon vanilla beans and infuse them into virgin coconut oil. We then add organic bourbon vanilla bean CO2 extract.
Virgin Coconut: creamy, buttery, decadent
We use organic extra virgin coconut oil (Cocos nucifera) that is cold-pressed and unrefined. Our coconut oil is Fair Trade and comes from a sustainable source.
Our virgin coconut oil has a strong natural coconut aroma that is rich, buttery and sweet.
Virgin coconut oil makes your skin feel soft and lubricated.
Dark Patchouli - rich, earthy, mysterious
Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) is mysterious, warm and sensual.
Patchouli is often regrettably misunderstood.
Patchouli essential oil is used in aromatherapy to relieve stress, calm nerves, and as an aphrodisiac.
Patchouli is rich in pogostone, which is a potent antioxidant and also has favorable anti-inflammatory and anti-photoaging properties.
The aroma of dark patchouli is rich, deep, earthy, sweet-herbaceous, with ethereal, floral-sweet top notes and a woody-balsamic and cocoa body.
Patchouli is one of the rare essential oils whose aroma improves with age.
We use organic dark patchouli essential oil from Indonesia and India.
Blue Chamomile - rich, warm, inviting
The aroma of chamomile (Matricaria recutita L.) is rich, warm and herbaceous with pleasant apple-like undertones.
We use two types of chamomile in our face cleanser.
We use dried whole, organic chamomile flowers that we infuse into organic virgin coconut oil for its warm, calming aroma.
We also use organic blue chamomile CO2, which is rich in potent anti-inflammatory sesquiterpenes, α-bisabolol, β-farnesene and chamazulene.
Calendula - sweet, warm, calming
Calendula (Calendula officinalis) has a subtle floral aroma and provides warmth and depth to our formulas.
We use dried whole, organic calendula flowers.
