From The Archives: An Introduction to Ellovi
For those of you who miss the original Seed to Serum blog, I’m pulling vintage posts from the archives to introduce you to the lines I now sell in the shop and the reasons that I fell in love with them. Enjoy!
Kelly Winterhalter started Ellovi with one product. One perfect product. A body butter. It contains only six ingredients, none of which are fillers or synthetic ingredients. Which ingredients made the cut? Macadamia nut oil, coconut oil, marula nut oil, hempseed oil, non-GMO corn starch, and shea butter. And I have to say, the result is fantastic! The texture of this butter is unlike any I've tried before. It's thick and rich, but applies very smooth and silky. This is definitely not your average DIY concoction. I am so impressed by the quality and craftsmanship. And the finish is lovely as well. It's not too heavy or oily, which are indicative of lower quality butters in my opinion. Skin is left perfectly moisturized and baby soft. And the effect lasts for days.
Let's delve into the ingredients shall we? Macadamia nut oil is wonderful for dryness and readily penetrates the skin. Coconut oil is antibacterial and antiviral. Marula nut oil is a rich source of Vitamin C, fatty acids, nutrients, and minerals making it exceptionally healing and hydrating. Hempseed oil is anti-inflammatory, containing the perfect fatty acid profile. Last, but certainly not least, shea butter is nourishing and provides natural UV protection. Needless to say, your skin will look better over time when using this body butter. And isn't it about time we started treating our body with the same care and attention as our faces?!
There are no essential oils in this butter so when it comes to scent, what you see is what you get. Meaning it smells mostly of hemp, macadamia, and coconut (mostly coconut to me). As a result, the scent is very earthy. Not bad, just very natural. My world smells mostly of lavender and rose so I find this fact kind of refreshing.
Love the sound of the ingredients, but all stocked up on body lotions and oils? Try the Lip Butter! It instantly hydrates parched, cracked lips. And did I mention that it’s available in a spectacular tinted version as well? Yes, you definitely need one of each!
