Get the most out of your Body Crème by saturating your skin with a Hydrosol first. Our Ylang Ylang Hydrosol & Body Crème Duo follows the Benedetta practice of Water Integration by introducing water to the skin prior to applying an oil or crème. When used together- you get better hydration and saturation your skin needs to be healthy and radiant, while using less product overall.
Each of our Body Crèmes is expertly formulated with African Shea Butter harvested and handcrafted by a women’s cooperative, following traditional ancient practices. Our luscious crème soaks into the skin and truly rejuvenates with moisture that lasts! Benedetta’s 100% Botanical Ylang Ylang Body Crème has a euphoric aroma with a rich blend of active ingredients. Collectively they create a fresh synergy that holistically aid the body’s ability to nourish the skin and bring it into balance.
The Ylang Ylang Duo includes our 3.4oz / 100ml Ylang Ylang Hydrosol (water) and Ylang Ylang Crème.
Day: First exfoliate with Dry Brush, then shower with our Citrus Sugar & Salt Exfoliant and Sacred Soap. Spray first with one of our Hydrosols, and apply crème all over body. A little goes a long way.
For many years I was asked to create a body lotion. As a formulator, I look for the right ingredients for the preparation to couple with improving a physical disposition or skin disorder.
It wasn’t until one of my farmers in California sent me 5 gallons of Lemon Cypress hydrosol with a note saying,” I hope you can use this”, did I decide to create a body lotion using this beautiful botanical water.
A body lotion to improve circulation was the intention and the ingredients just fell into place. A synergy using nourishing botanicals that would rid the skin of dryness, as it aided circulation was created.
The Vibrant Body Lotion was born and launched in the San Francisco Ferry Building to amazing reviews. Still our best seller, it possesses a unique fragrance coming from the fresh array of raw ingredients that uplift the senses as it works magic on the skin.
Our customers, young and old, all have outstanding reports suggesting increased circulation as well as improvement to skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, and various other types of contact dermatitis.**
After 4 years of success with the Vibrant Lotion, we launched the addition of two more lotions, the Lavender Body Lotion and Neroli Body Lotion, both having similar reports of success.
Our Lavender is an authentic aroma grown and processed by a California biodynamic farm. The Neroli is biodynamically sourced from Egypt and is processed slowly, omitting a delicate floral aroma. Both are calming and soothing to the skin, with the Neroli being more effective for the drier skin conditions.
