Earthwise Beauty - Ambrosia del Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer and Toner

The mysterious Ambrosia del Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer, with an irresistible guava-plus-citrus scent, feels like applying yellow dewdrops that are fully charged with unrefined, whole-food (not isolated or factory-produced “nature identical”) nutrients from the superfood buriti, pequi, and moringa oils.

Our idea was to create a formula with that would be truly nourishing, yet ultra light and breathable at the same time, to deliver lots of moisture without a waxy or overly emollient feel. This format is very appealing for the times when the skin is dehydrated but you don't want oil or an emulsion (lotion or cream) on your face because you prefer a lighter feel. By light, we don’t mean “just a little bit effective”: this moisturizer is highly effective in what it is designed to do; you will be amazed by how much and how quickly your skin can absorb in each single application.

We chose a Portuguese name for this product to draw attention to the Cerrado area in Brazil, as this beautiful savanna is considered the biologically richest savanna in the world by the Word Wide Fund of Nature. Earthwise Beauty wants to shine a spotlight on areas of the world that are overlooked or insufficiently known about by the Western world, and that need our attention to protect their natural environment and biodiversity.

We also want to support the indigenous populations of these regions so that their livelihoods will be rewarded and appreciated and their culture will be respected and protected. To that end, we choose fair trade ingredients from these regions, extracted sustainably by small cooperatives using their traditional tools of choice, and we have chosen some of our product names and designs to provoke our customers’ curiosity about these areas, their natural bounty, and their peoples.

Indications

FOR ALL SKIN TYPES. Acne-prone, combination, and oily skin types can enjoy hydration without the risk of breakouts or the oily or waxy feel of moisturizers that are too rich for them. Dry and normal skin types will benefit from the nutrients and hydration when using this potion as the first step, before applying a richer cream or facial oil. 

AMBROSIA DO CERRADO LIQUID MOISTURIZER: Cold-press whole-leaf Aloe barbadensis leaf juice*, Caryocar braziliensis (pequi) fruit oil†, cold-press unrefined Mauritia flexuosa (buriti) fruit oil†, cold-press unrefined Moringa oleifera seed oil† or *, Sambucus nigra (elderberry) fruit extract, polysorbate 20, tocopherol (vit. E from non-GMO sunflowers), potassium sorbate (natural food-grade preservative), xanthan gum, ascorbic acid (vit. C), citric acid.

*Certified organic. †Responsibly wildcrafted.

Our polysorbate 20 is carefully sourced and naturally derived (from cornstarch). According to the MSDS sheet (Material Safety Data Sheet) we received from the manufacturer, there are no impurities or hazardous components in this ingredient. We use polysorbate 20 in minimal amounts (0.5–1.5%) to emulsify essential oils and carrier oils into an aloe base. Emulsifying of essential oils is important to prevent "pockets" of essential oils in a product, which could potentially be sensitizing. We are aware of recent concerns over the purity of polysorbates available on the market and are currently testing other naturally derived alternatives.

Directions

Use as much as your skin wants to drink in (use generously), day and night on a freshly washed face and neck. Shake the bottle often to re-emulsify. Suitable for use under the eyes. For added benefits consider adding Ferns and Moss Face Serum or your favorite facial oil: simply dispense a single use amount of Ambrosia del Cerrado into a small ceramic mixing bowl and combine with a few drops of your serum or oil to create a moisturizer that is even richer and more nourishing. 

Filled to the brim. Freshness guaranteed for 6 months. Full sizes 1 fl. oz. (30 ml) or 2 fl. oz. (60 ml).
