A scented version of the original Skin Food.
Hand-crafted with tallow from grass-fed UK cows for its superior moisturising properties and ability to slow transdermal water-loss. Sophie at Absolutely Pure worked in the cosmetics industry, but developed her range of natural Paleo skincare after conventional beauty products left her skin dry, red and swollen.
Tallow is fairly low odour and the predominant smell of Skin Food is actually babassu oil.
Here’s the sciency bit: It’s low in PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid), high in vitamins A, D, E and K and the potent anti-inflammatory nutrient CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) to nourish your skin, balance sebum, improve hydration, strengthen and maintain integrity of cells, and reduce your risk of developing liver spots and premature aging. What more could you ask for from a face cream? (In fact it’s so pure you can eat it too – it probably doesn’t taste great but it’s 100% safe!)
Sophie who makes this says she would always recommend unscented products whenever possible, especially if you have sensitive skin – even if the fragrance comes from essential oils – but she has also made this Skin Food with the lovely floral aroma of rose geranium for those who want the choice.
Sophie at Absolutely Pure started her business 15 years ago after reactions to high end conventional products. More recently she has developed these 100% natural, edible (and Paleo!) products after learning about the dangers of PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids to you and me). These damaging oils are in 99% of ‘natural’ products and can prematurely age us – inside and out. Her products are PUFA free, hand-crafted in small batches with no water, emulsifiers, preservatives, artificial fragrances or synthetic colours and in her words are ‘Pure enough to eat’. Sophie found us on Instagram, but before we spoke to her we did a mystery shop and were super impressed. Then she called us and challenged us – she has super high standards (just like us) and wasn’t sure if we were tough enough for her. We love a good challenge. And we love her products.
