Commercial beauty products often contain harmful chemicals, preservatives, and other fillers. Most lotions and creams on the market contain a lot of water, which tends to dry out the skin rather than moisturize it. The mere presence of water in a lotion or cream promotes bacterial or fungal growth, which requires a preservative to avoid contamination. On the other hand, vegetable butters and oils are stable on their own and have a long shelf life.
Plant-based butters and oils are the best way to keep your body hydrated and healthy. While the beauty industry would like us to believe that oil clogs pores and causes breakouts, botanical oils and extracts actually have strong antiseptic, purifying properties. Phytonutrients help repair, restore and maintain skin cells. Essential oils, whose aroma can be very therapeutic, have been used for centuries.
MIZTERA products don't contain water. Instead, they are composed of vegetable, fruit and seed butters and oils. Never greasy and deeply nourishing, they are suitable for all body parts and all types of skin, especially sensitive types.
Crafted with high quality, therapeutic-grade essential oils, they are always handmade, in small batches. At MIZTERA, I am dedicated to using eco-friendly, cruelty-free, locally-sourced materials.
