Our small part trying to help a big problem

Sunfood All-Natural Skin Care Products

Very common, barely talked about

One of the least talked about side effects of cancer treatment is a condition known as radiation dermatitis. Patients endure dry, sore, itchy, sensitive skin and chapped lips as a result of the treatment methods often used(1). In fact, an estimated 95% of patients receiving radiation therapy will experience some degree of skin reaction(2), varying from redness, itching, and drying, to peeling and pain.

Because of this, many patients seek out relief in the form of pure, natural skin care that contains as few ingredients as possible. It’s imperative to avoid any possible chemical interactions from fragrances, alcohols, and parabens that can cause reactions, discomfort, or worsen the condition.

Many people who suffer from psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and other skin conditions have these very same concerns and also seek all-natural products with only a few ingredients. There are hundreds of thousands of people in need of a solution, but the truth is there aren’t a lot of options available.

Our small part

With our new line of skin care products, our goal is to help cut back on the unnecessary chemicals adding up in your life. That is the mindset behind using simple, all-natural superfood ingredients. Take a look at the labels of other lotions and moisturizers and you’ll see a long and confusing list of ingredients.

The only ingredients we use are cacao butter, shea butter, bees wax, sacha inchi oil, tocotrienols, MSM powder, and coconut oil. We don’t even add water to dilute it. We believe in feeding your skin with nutrients, not chemicals.

Success against Psoriasis with Healing Skin Repair
“I have psoriasis on my elbows. They have cracked open and bleed and have been very tender. Always bright red and raised skin. I have used Healing every day and have been overly surprised and joyful at the results.  Within a month, no more cracking. The bright red skin is gone and my skin is smooth, not rough anymore. At this time my elbows just look a little ashy. I can wear short sleeves without feeling self conscious. Unbelievable!”
– Lorraine

Carcinogens, chemicals, and more

We already know there are big risks from absorbing chemicals through the skin, leached from beauty products that contain carcinogens and endocrine-disrupting chemicals(3). It’s smart to make a decision to avoid these products altogether, even if you’re perfectly healthy.

But most of us don’t have perfect skin and we use some type of moisturizer or cream already. The problem is almost every cream and lotion on the market has tons of extra ingredients. This is because preservatives and emulsifiers must be added to turn water into a cream or lotion. These products simply cannot be made without a large number of ingredients.

Food for your skin

We believe everyone should be fully aware of everything touching their skin and going into their body, whether or not your skin is healthy. Our aim is to provide a better option that can work for anyone, with any skin type. We think everyone can achieve the beautiful, healthy, radiant skin they desire with fewer, but superior ingredients.

Try feeding your skin with nutrients instead of chemicals, and see what it does for you.
