Sweetcream: Organically Delicious Skincare

I've been trying to be more aware of the things I put in my body - trying to eat more veggies, drink more water, exploring organic food and such. So when I found out my friend Lisa was launching her own line of organic skincare products ( ), I got pretty excited about it. Lisa has a passion for organics, and as I explored her new website and read her vision, she taught me about a little bit about the things I use daily on my skin:

"...We make choices everyday to take care of our internal organs. Our skin is our largest organ, and we often neglect its power and influence over the rest of our body. Think about it…. many medications are applied to the skin, such as hormone creams, nicotine patches, and birth control. These work well because our skin absorbs them quickly and carries the medication to our bloodstream and throughout our entire system.
"Did you know that commercially produced bath and body care products contain ingredients and compounds known to cause organ toxicity, neurotoxicity, hormonal imbalance, immunotoxicity, and even cancer?"

Lisa offers a wonderful alternative in her handmade organic skincare. She has a nice selection of bar soaps and cleansers, scrubs, moisturizers and lip balms, even a section of baby products. And she has exciting plans for even more products in the future!
"Hand made with care, sweetcream uses only the finest pure, organic and natural ingredients for the highest possible quality... sweetcream is hypo-allergenic and free from parabens, pthalates, sulfates (SLS), synthetic fragrances, and toxic chemicals. " I ordered some things for Christmas gifts last month, and then a little for myself. When the package arrived, it smelled divine. I found the PiƱa colada lip balm and toasted coconut soap particularly yummy. And they were packaged in totally cute black and white damask labels. Tre chic!

I tried the shea butter spiced cider soap for myself. It smelled so nice (spicy - really just like apple cider!) and lathers up nicely on the loofah. I also treated myself to the citrus scrub. The scent on that one is almost intoxicating and I really felt like it exfoliated well. I used it especially on my forearms where I get alot of dry skin and some breakouts. The oils moisturized quite nicely without any residue. All in all I give Sweetcream Organic a big thumbs up! I think I'm gonna order one of her serums next!

Living more organically is a life-style change for me, but Lisa makes it easy with her delicious and beautifully wrapped products that feel so luxurious and help me feel better about what I put on my skin!
