Product Highlight - Facial Cream

Facial Cream - Urban Oreganics - Botanical Apothecary - Natural Skin Care

What if you could have an all-day facial moisturizer that never felt greasy and didn’t contain harsh chemicals? Well, look no further! Perhaps our most popular product to date, our green tea Facial Cream is the perfect, non-toxic alternative to store bought moisturizers. Our Facial Cream actually started as a request from a friend. She was wanting a facial cream that would be anti-aging and also prevent and treat acne. After weeks of research and development, we were able to nail down this best-selling formula. From that first full batch, it was an instant hit!

Our Organic Ingredients:
+ Pure Virgin Coconut Oil has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It hydrates and conditions skin, and helps skin retain moisture.
+ Candelilla Wax is naturally anti-inflammatory and has been known to help treat acne.
+ Aloe Vera Gel is a common household item especially if you’ve ever experienced a bad burn! But, it also treats acne, is anti-aging, and soothes irritated skin.
+ Jojoba Oil might as well be called the hair and skin cure-all. As we age, our sebaceous glands produce less sebum (healthy oil that moisturizes your skin and hair). Jojoba Oil has the same properties and consistency of sebum, therefore, is an amazing alternative to help restore moisture naturally. It also promotes skin health and improves acne as it is rich in iodine and other antibacterial properties. Finally, it contains Vitamin E, which combats aging, sun damage, and reduces scar appearance.
+ Green Tea was always at the top of my list for this product. It treats acne, is anti-aging, and protects against sun damage. This is exactly what you want (and need) in your facial moisturizer!

We offer the option of adding our non-nano and uncoated Zinc Oxide to your facial cream.

A quick vocab lesson: "non-nano" refers to the size of the zinc oxide powder in its molecular form. Non-nano is safer as it poses a smaller risk of skin-penetration. Nanoparticles also have a shorter record of safe use and pose potential environmental concerns. Historically, certain toxic chemicals found in commercial sunscreens have ended up causing damage to the coral reefs. Uncoated zinc oxide is a mineral-based filter that is a much safer alternative to conventional chemical-based filters. In summary, this is the good stuff that protects against the sun’s harmful UV rays AND is the most eco-friendly option.

Recommended Uses:
Our Facial Cream is specially formulated for all skin types to moisturize deep without any buildup. Applying it with your fingertips (even clean ones) can cause grime and oil to be trapped in your pores and cause breakouts. Because of this, we always recommend applying using a cosmetic brush or sponge. This is especially important with our cream, but also a good rule of thumb with any lotion/serum/cosmetics you apply to your face.

For best use, apply a thin layer to clean skin using a cosmetic brush or sponge. Continue to blend in a circular motion until fully absorbed. To help reduce inflammation or puffiness, follow with a gentle facial roller massage; your skin will thank you!

Since our Facial Cream contains healing ingredients, like aloe vera gel and green tea, it also works wonders on small kitchen burns. A nice layer over an oven burn really helps pull the heat, reduce inflammation, and prevent scarring. Or create your own tinted moisturizer by mixing in a mineral powder!

“Just as background, I have very dry skin at times but some of my face also gets oily (sometimes parts are oily and dry/flaky... how?!) but this cream paired with the bare cleansing grains works wonders! I thought all of the butters and oils would clog pores, but not at all! It moisturizes all day and gives my skin a natural glow. Totally recommend!” - Tori

“as someone who struggles between oily and dry skin the facial cream has helped to provide balance to my skin and keep it well moisturized year around!” - Taylor

“I found this product on Etsy in 2014. I fell in love with it then and I'm still in love with it now. It works wonders. It makes my skin glow. I love that there is nothing nasty/harsh/toxic in it. I will continue to buy and recommend it for others as well!” - Amber

  • The facial cream is the product that hooked me with UO. My skin is very dry, but most products I used either made my skin oily, greasy feeling., or made me breakout. UO facial cream is perfect so moisturizing my skin actually feels amazing and it doesn’t break out. Honestly as a mama to two kitties sometimes it’s UO facial cream that makes me feel like my face has been brought back to life.
