Body Balm - 3.2oz
Body Balm - 3.2oz
Our Body balm is our very first product. It contains only oils and butters, no preservatives or synthetic ingredients. All the ingredients work towards locking in the oils your skin naturally makes, encouraging new cellular and collagen reproduction, and aiding in elasticity and tightening. We wanted to come up with a product that could serve everyone in the family from the littlest to the oldest, as well as serve many different skin care needs. It might not be perfect, but we think we got pretty close. A product that is completely natural, contains no chemicals, parabens, sulfates or phthalates, and helps our skin to be as healthy as it can be. Here are some ways we like to use ILO.
The 3.2 oz ultraviolet jar is our largest size, and great for larger families. Nothing artificial ever, all natural always, purely plant based and made by hand with joy in Nashville, TN. Our balm is shelf stable for at least 6 months, but we hope you’ll have used it up long before then!
