Blue Lotus Face and Body Oil.
Action--action, begins by loving ourselves. This Body Oil is skin therapy for all! No matter the state of our skin, we all need to protect our skin from harsh external elements while feeding it with skin-enhancing properties that allow the skin to do what it’s meant to do: protect, maintain moisture and regenerate skin cells. Phytonutrients were carefully selected for their ability to condition skin, protect from oxidation, water-loss and UV damage, maintain suppleness, support collagen production, increase elasticity, and carry vitamins A, B, C and E that are naturally abundant in these oils) into your skin. Is this not the best therapy or what?
Directions: Apply onto face after your cleansing ritual, while your face is still damp. Apply on your body after showering and toweling down (pat dry so skin remains a bit damp).
Ingredients: Grapeseed Oil, Camellia Oil, Wild (or Organic) Passionfruit Oil, Organic Macadamia Oil, Organic Borage Seed Oil, Organic Baobab Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Meadowfoam Oil, Capric Triglyceride, Vitamin E (from Organic Sunflower or non-GMO Soy), Marine Algae Extract*, Wild Blue Lotus Essential Oil, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, and Organic Rosemary Extract.
Blue Lotus & Green Tea Face Mist.
Awaken-- we need to awaken our senses in order to spot the injustice. This Face Mist provides your skin with readily absorbed nutrients, calming teas, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and skin moisturizing phytochemicals is the best remedy for soothing and improving your skin condition.
They say, and I say, that our skin reflects our internal health so the real cure to skin problems starts internally. I still stand by this. However, harsh external elements affect our skin, too, so external remedies are equally important. Unhappy skin doesn’t always to reflect your state of being, it can simply reflect the stress your skin is facing under harsh environments.
Directions: Mist face after your cleansing routine. Use in lieu of a toner. You can also mist throughout the day as needed.

But, this cleanser does have what you need to enjoy a naturally soft, refreshed, moisturized and cleansed face, leaving you feeling healthy, beautiful and smelling like “ahhhh”.
Directions: Instead of soap, use this. Apply 1 garbanzo bean-size of BMC onto wet face. Wash as if you were using soap. Great for underarms and genitals, too.

Therapeutic Lip Cream
Inspire--What you speak is an opportunity to inspire. Our TLC is crafted with precision to perform four tasks whereas traditional lip balms perform two--they condition and seal in moisture that you usually don't have (which is why your lips get chapped and keep cracking). Instead, our Therapeutic Lip Cream adds moisture, attracts more moisture, seals it in and nourishes your lips as it is rich in gamma-Linoleic acid. Enjoy moisturized, supple and healthy while shielding them from sun & weather damage. All this sans the use of harsh chemicals....and no more need for Vaseline!!
Choose from Clear and Riesling Rose--a soft shimmer with a hint of soft rose.
As I became aware of the beauty industries’ botanical ingredients and society’s exorbitant demands for miracle herbs that would reverse signs of aging and shave off layers of fat, I quickly saw that believing in nature’s curative abilities alone wasn’t going to make this world a better place...not if there wasn’t a plant revolution that would change the way we understood agriculture and international trade. Until then, I was deadly ashamed of, and ever so angry about, being a part of the green beauty movement for it was a movement that only enabled the exploitative practices of stolen harvests that have been destroying our resources and the lives of so many. The botanicals are angry.
Angry Botanicals is more than a green beauty movement. It’s a plant revolution that demands more than organic. Angry Botanicals takes a stance for earth justice and human rights because as it is now, our needs for botanical ingredients in skincare products means that agro-industries appropriate land from host countries throughout South East Asia and Latin America to grow cash crops that are sold to the US and Europe. This leaves the people of these places unable to grow their preferred foods on their own land, negatively affecting local food supply, access and prices, and significantly distorting traditional food culture. These people are also forced to work as farm laborers, receiving measly wages instead of being able to be their own farmer of their own land. To make matters worse, these agro-industries use synthetic fertilizers and pesticides—even when claiming to be organic as “organic” can imply a minimum use of these toxic inputs. Not only are these toxic to our skin—which the green beauty movement has done a great job bringing to our attention— these toxic chemicals have serious implications on our earth: it stresses our earth, pollutes waters sources and it kills biodiversity, including the micro-organisms that strengthen our soil and nourish the plants.
All this destruction—whether it’s the plundering of resources or the disruption of local economies and cultures—caused by the senseless practices of agro-industries, is magnified as our desires for botanical ingredients increase. It's time we changed this, and this Kit does this by calling attention to something we have been long ignoring. Leading by example the botanicals used to make our products have been cultivated, harvested and sourced responsibly and with love.
The Kit is made of organic and fair trade cotton and is handmade by a women's collective in India. These women have been rescued from sex trafficking and have started this business to sustain their lives as they work towards fulfilling their dreams.
