Our Ingredients and our Methods
The ingredients in our preparations treat skin kindly in the now and over the long run. Mineral rich clays, hydrosols, botanical herbs and oils, organic yogurt, and raw honey make up our preparations. Each ingredient is exceptional for its purifying, regenerative, healing, anti-inflammatory, and/or anti-aging properties. Our short list of essential oils has the following criteria: each essential oil must have significant value for the skin, be non-phototoxic, be deemed generally safe and non-sensitizing on contact and/or over time.
All Balbec ingredients are wildcrafted, organic, and or cultivated without chemicals. We source each one through sustainable channels.
Made to order and delivered directly to you.
Our skincare contains no preservatives, fillers, or stabilizers. Balbec products are skin food and meant to be enjoyed within their given shelf life, which is: 3 months for oils, 2 months for hydrosols, and 6 weeks for our clay and yogurt cleansers. Refrigeration for cleansers and hydrosols keep products fresh for their guaranteed life span. Please note that when properly refrigerated, cleansers and hydrosols can keep fresh longer. We use violet glass for all our products for its preservative qualities.
Because our products are fresh, we do not sell them through retail outlets. Once we prepare your skin care, we deliver them directly to you. This ensures that you can enjoy the experience of using high quality skincare in its freshest state.
A note on our cleansers
Clay has a slight natural electrical charge and works through ionic exchange to absorb heavy metal, toxins, debris, and dirt from the skin. To maintain this charge and keep our clays effective, we make sure that they do not contact any metal during production and provide a bamboo spoon for use. This allows clays to perform their exchange to keep skin detoxified and nourished.
We triple sift our clays to a silky texture and each cleanser is hand blended to achieve a texture that machines can't quite produce. We hope you enjoy them in good health.
Our Scent Profile
The fragrances of Balbec naturally occur from the ingredients we use to create safe, comforting, softening, balanced, and delightful skincare.
Our formulations smell clean like incense and the woods. They are floral, earthy, herbaceous, and grassy. Some fragrances are warm and dry, some are deep and fresh at once. Please take an extra moment as you enjoy your products to breathe in and relax to make the most of this contact with nature.
