nourishing hand wash
a handful of hydration
any hand wash can clean, but our nourishing hand wash goes one step further. it moisturizes too. and your hard working hands deserve nothing less. we hand-selected nutrient-rich botanicals, like seaweed and kelp extracts, and combined them with our unique, naturally derived hydrating complex. the result is a fabulous formula that leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth + luxuriously clean. and our heavenly, nature-inspired scents mean your nose is in for a treat too.
what's that smell?
cute little olive leaf walks into a bar. there it meets some fresh herbs and a tiny bit of citrus. they mingle, have a few laughs, and become great friends. that's it. no punchline to this joke, just a really nice smell.
there’s a reason a coconut is hard on the outside. it’s protecting a precious cargo of fragrant coconut milk. and when you smell this rich + indulgent scent you can see why. one whiff and you’re transported to a swaying hammock, listening to the palm fronds gently rustling in a balmy tropical breeze.
we keep debating what’s best about this scent—the earthy almond side or the sweet flowery side. but then we remember how they’re one and the same. sometimes it’s easy to forget that even nuts have a sensitive side.
cherry blossoms are the celebrities of the floral world. people travel from all over to experience their breathtaking beauty and subtly sweet scent. but we know not everyone has time to travel. so we’re bringing these blooms to you.
