Ingredients

When I was researching and developing this collection of products, I was interested in exploring some of the ingredients my Latin American ancestors turned to for centuries.  Not only were these ingredients time-tested and proven effective, I loved that they provided a rich sensory experience and allowed me to connect with my heritage.

I worked with a team of experts to create my final formulas, carefully choosing and vetting each and every ingredient.  They need to pass my personal “non-irritating” skin test as well as meet my standards for being high-quality, safe, and natural, plant-derived ingredients.

 Our formulas are cruelty-free, vegan and contain no synthetic chemicals, parabens, phalates, artificial fragrance or colors, and are made to be gentle and kind to sensitive skin.

Bamboo

Bamboo is a prolific, eco-sustainable and versatile plant. Bamboo is grown on every continent of the planet (except the poles) and is considered one of the most renewable plant resources because it has the ability to rapidly self-propagate. Bamboo fiber is used as an exfoliator and Rebekah chose bamboo for it’s ability to adapt to sensitive skin. Exfoliating removes corneus cells accumulating on the skin surface, helping to refine the appearance of skin texture and brighten skin tone.

Mango

As with most natural fruits, the seed has just as many benefits as the flesh. The mango comes from a tropical fruit tree cultivated in Brazil and Mexico. It’s rich in oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated omega-9 acid; and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid. These are ingredients that the skin readily recognizes, takes up and uses to help add moisture to the skin as it tightens and firms the appearance of skin.
