Organic Unrefined Avocado Oil

This is a truly luxurious and very useful ingredient.  The dark green colour and the fruity fragrance both indicate the quality and purity of the oil we source.  Avocado oil is rich in over 25 vital nutrients including vitamins A,B,C,E and K.  It is also rich in various beneficial minerals.  It is widely used for dry skin and hair, and known for its anti-ageing properties.  It can help with stimulating and maintaining collagen and elastin in the skin, hence it is one of the key ingredients in the Beginnings Whipped Beauty Butter (facial and body butter)and the Beginnings Botanical Balm (for fine lines and wrinkles, general anti-ageing).  It is a mild and gentle oil even for sensitive skin and so is one of the three oils in the organic Bubbly Baby Soap Bar, and the Unscented Moisturising soap bar.  Overall, it is an excellent moisturising and conditioning oil.

Organic Unrefined Shea Butter

Shea butter is one of my own personal favourites.  It really is an amazing ingredient, being a highly effective moisturiser, conditioner and healer.  We only use the top quality organic, unrefined shea butter.  Refined and bleached shea butter retains moisturising properties but loses other unique benefits to the skin.  The Beginnings Organic Whipped Beauty Butter and our Organic Almond & Shea Hand Salve both contain over 50% organic, unrefined shea butter, pure luxury.

Pure Essential Oils

At Beginnings we NEVER use synthetic fragrances.  See the About Us page for details regarding the dangers of phthlates which are often found in these fragrance oils.  Pure essential oils are a treasure I knew little about until a few years ago.  The fragrance is only the tip of the iceberg, essential oils can be soothing, healing, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal etc etc!  Once you switch to pure, TRULY natural products the artificial fragranced products begin to smell unappealing and unnatural. Some of our favourite essential oils are Lavender, Patchouli, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Sweet Orange, Tea Tree and Peppermint.

Vitamin E, Tocopherol

Beginnings products often have a little naturally sourced Vitamin E added for two reasons.  One, it helps increase the shelf life and freshness of the product. Two, it has benefits for the skin.  We do not use synthetic forms of Vitamin E, known as tocopherol acetate, which has been linked with health concerns.  

Green Clay 

 Green clay is a wonderful addition to soaps, absorbing excess oils and grime for a gentle yet deep cleansing of skin and hair.  Full of minerals and healing properties, great for clear skin and a healthy scalp.
