Do You Know What's In Your Beauty Product?

Hey Y'all!!

I hope this post finds you having a spectacular day! Lately, I've been bothered by some of the TV advertisements from the "big box" companies. They claim their product will moisturize deep into the skin while other products of their competitors sit atop the skin.

Here's the skinny on the skin. The skin is the body's largest organ with an area totally around 20 square feet. With (3) three layers, the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis, it performs many functions. It serves as a moisture resistance barrier, protects against the environment and provides the sensations of cold, heat and touch.

Cactus & Ivy sources ingredients that are high in Omega 3, Vitamins A, C, D, E & F, Oleic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid and Linoleic Acid to revitalize and restore the skins normal balance. We utilize ingredients that will benefit the skin the most, creating a product with a specific purpose. A complete listing of the ingredients we use can be found

Take the time to read the ingredients on your bath and body product label. Cactus & Ivy has always believed in transparency and full disclosure of ingredients in our products. The consumer is savvy and is becoming more knowledgeable about what they put on their skin. We will always list our ingredients in descending order, as required by the FDA Labeling Guidelines. If you want to know which ingredient has the highest percentage that makes up your body product, it is the first ingredient listed. The last ingredient listed has the lowest percentage.
