The human skin wraps and protects our bodies. It constitutes a living, dynamic tissue system. It has the remarkable ability to absorb applied products, partially or completely, into the bloodstream. In fact, up to 60% of the products we use on our skin are absorbed and deposited into the circulatory system (Fairley, 2001). For instance, the average woman absorbs 30 pounds of the ingredients contained in moisturizers over sixty years (Dr.Hauschka).
You'll be happy to know that our Scandle Essentials contain no syntheic ingredients that can be harmfully absorbed into the body. Scandles are made from soy butter, shea butter, jojoba, vitamin E, & essential oils.
