The preliminary report that I created in the Cosmetics Database gives this product a hazard score of 2. The only ingredients with hazard scores above a 3 are emulsifying wax (4) and unspecified oils (4). I left out absolutes since the site didn’t recognize it, but Persephenie has since assured me of their safety.
Some great things about this product:
1.It’s free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrance.
2. It contains organic ingredients.
3. It’s cruelty-free and vegan.
Product Description(provided at persephenie.com)- “An incredibly rich regenerative butter formulated specifically to balance, soothe, buffer, and heal. Botanical extracts of rose, helichrysum, pomegranate, and calendula, all known for their beneficial properties, work synergistically to restore and renew. A wonderful replenisher against the effects of the sun, aging, and wind. Rose Paka’s Organic marula oil is hand pressed from a woman’s collective in South Africa. Completely botanical. 75% ORGANIC. ”
Price– $36.00 for a 3.4 fl. oz. tub.
Performance– This body butter is unlike many other body butters I’ve used in the past in that it doesn’t make my skin feel sticky or greasy. It’s more hydrating than lotions tend to be, but it’s not excessively rich (which means I can safely moisturize my neck and chest with it). I’m a fan!
Scent– This product has a deep and rich floral scent that’s surprisingly long-lasting. It could actually effectively be worn in place of perfume, which I love.
Rating– 8.5/10. I subtracted half a point for the price and a whole point for the 2 ingredients with hazard scores above a 3.
Would I purchase this item again? You betcha!
