Why edible?

An edible body butter has its fair share of benefits! Some of the best include:

  • Absolute purity and complete non-toxicity
  • High absorbability by the skin due to it being naturally digestible by the body
  • Edible oils are naturally high in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants like vitamin A
  • Brings nourishment to the skin as well as moisture to improve the overall tone, texture, health and moisture level of skin with daily use
  • Safe and beneficial for use on all skin types, conditions, ages, and dryness levels–from very young to mature and from extremely dry to oily

ALAL_ingredients

Most of the skin moisturizers on the market contain some form of petroleum byproduct, parabens, chemical dyes and fragrances, and/or┬ápolypropylene glycol (which is plastic–yuck!). Not only do these ingredients offer absolutely no nutritional value for skin, they suffocate your skin by clogging its pores. What’s even worse is that they are also non-sustainable ingredients, so they create an imbalance both in the health of your skin and the health of our planet.

The edible oils in all Aloha Alchemy products absorb deep into the layers of the skin providing long lasting moisture and bringing the nutritional benefits along with them. They are also completely sustainable, biodegradable and chemical-free, making Mother Earth and your skin happy at the same time!
