You guys have heard me say it over and over again: I don’t develop a new product unless I feel like it’s something that’s absolutely necessary for our skin and our line up of offerings. Well, a few years ago I felt like my skin was really craving something “more.” Read on for the inspiration for creating the Blue Tansy Cream!
I’m in my 30’s now, and while I’m all for aging gracefully, I’m also about keeping my skin dewy and youthful — the natural way. For the past 6 years, I have reached for plants to help with any and every skin concern that I’ve had. Since having a baby a few years ago, I noticed that my skin was more dull, tired, and showing fine lines. I started incorporating frankincense (a key ingredient in the formula) into my skin care routine and fell in love with how diverse and powerful it was in bringing new life to my skin. I would blend it with other ultra-moisturizing and healing ingredients, and found that this was exactly what my skin needed at this stage in life.
I started developing this product for others who also wanted to rejuvenate their aging skin. Enter the Blue Tansy Cream! I chose blue tansy for its anti-inflammatory properties and because it blends beautifully with frankincense. It has an incredible sedative nature that calms and soothes the mind. This cream sinks deep into the skin and the aromatherapy benefits continue long after it’s applied. I’m so thrilled to be able to bring this product to market and can’t wait for everyone to try it!
