For best results use as a gentle body polish in the bath or shower. Not for use on the face. Wash off and pat dry with a towel. External use only. Store in a cool dark place.
In the cooler months our body polishes can set firmly in the pots. This is due to all the nourishing cocoa butter that we add into our mix. Scoop out with a spoon or stand in warm water to soften before showering. This in no way adversely affects the products effectiveness.
Sodium Chloride, Theobroma Seed Butter, Persea Gratissima oil & Pure Essential Oils.
Sea Salt contains a variety of minerals and nutrients that benefit our bodies, particularly our skin. It can transform an otherwise ordinary exfoliation experience into a powerful tonic which nourishes, invigorates and detoxifies. Sea salt is an incredibly effective exfoliator it gently cleanses pores and helps slough off dead skin, revealing the softer, healthier skin underneath. Exfoliation is a must for healthy, attractive skin.
Dead skin cells typically cover our bodies, as skin cells die and are reborn constantly. This lifeless outer layer can give your skin a dull, lack lustre appearance and can even make us look older by accentuating the cracks on the skin’s surface. When you exfoliate, you remove the outer layers of dead epidermis (skill) cells. People use a variety of exfoliation techniques but our favourite is to use sea salt in our body polishes. As you gently scrub, your skin becomes stimulated as your circulation improves. Your pores open and are ready to absorb all the wonderful minerals and nutrients.
Avocado Oil is a cold-pressed ultra-rich & nutrient dense body oil that is full of vitamins & essential fatty acids beneficial for the skin. This rich oil is made from the fresh meat of the avocado and supports the skin’s ability to retain moisture. This wonderful oil contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, beta carotene as well as collagen-boosting plant sterolins making it nourishing & suitable for counteracting dehydrated, sun exposed & dry skin. It is known to have regenerative & rejuvenating properties; it significantly increases the amount of collagen in the skin & is especially useful for mature skin. It has been known to be effective in helping reduce the itchiness & discomfort associated with some skin conditions.
Cocoa Butter is made from the seeds of the cacao fruit, which are also used to make chocolate. It is cold-pressed, raw and rich in essential fatty acids, which deeply penetrate dry skin, helping to restore lustre and softness. Cocoa butter has a soft, sweet cocoa aroma, and is one of the most stable fats known. It contains natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity. An excellent moisturizing agent for the skin.
Lavender Essential Oil: The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, disinfect the skin, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to it’s fragrance which has a particularly clean aroma. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing – physically and emotionally.
If stored in a cool dark place the exfoliation body polish will keep fresh for up to 6 months. When used twice weekly as an all over body exfoliation treatment, the body polish for most of our customers lasts up to 4 weeks duration depending on how often you use it and how large the areas of coverage are.
Yes, absolutely. Our exfoliation body polishes have a strong following with our customers who spray tan. Our product allows the skin to be exfoliated and hydrated before the tan which is key for an even tan and the helps increase the longevity of the tan. Just be mindful that this is an intensely moisturising product so use 24 hours before a spray tan in order for your body to have time to fully absorb all the benefits of the moisturising components without leaving any existing residue.
Absolutely, our products are vegan friendly. They are also raw as we believe that by adding heat we could change the precious nutritional profile of the cocoa butter and the other cold pressed oils in our product.
Yes, it can! especially if used in combination with healthy lifestyle factors. We use an array of various sea salt textures in order to not only exfoliate the top layer of the skin but to also stimulate the circulation. Stimulating the circulation to targeted areas such as those where there is cellulite is paramount to help release the stored toxins and improve the dimpled appearance by smoothing the skin. Due to the naturally occurring detoxification properties contained within the sea salt and the essential oil, our product offers the added benefit that if used regularly (twice weekly) this may reduce the appearance of cellulite!
Our exfoliation body polishes are particularly well suited to dry, fussy skin that requires deep nutrition and moisture that locks in with the emollient properties of the cocoa butter. Typically exfoliation polishes leave the skin stimulated but requiring added moisturiser to soothe the skin afterwards. Our exfoliation body polish instead offers a protective layer of nutrient dense cold pressed oils to hydrate and leave the freshly exfoliated skin, deeply moisturised. No need for additional moisturising afterwards: exfoliate- wash off- gently pat dry.
Yes, the Lavender Bliss Exfoliation Polish not only is an effective exfoliator but it also acts as an emollient. Emollients trap moisture and lock it into the epidermis top layer of the skin. An emollient acts as a protectant from external environmental pathogenic factors while it also targets dry and sensitive areas on the skins surface. We have blended highly nutritious oils and essential oils to invigorate, plump, smooth and moisturize the skin, cocoa butter’s emollient properties 'hold' the nutrition in place and allow it to work at the correct skin layer for a protracted period of time.
Many of our customers with dry, sensitive and mature skin find that this product after exfoliating is readily absorbed. Leaving the skin glowing and hydrated.
In the cooler months our body polishes can set quite firmly in the pots. This is due to all the nourishing cocoa butter that we add into our mix. Scoop out with a spoon or stand in warm water to soften before showering. This in no way adversely affects the products effectiveness.
Venus of Beauty natural beauty products were developed after several disappointing decades of investing in products that didn’t help my dry sensitive skin. I invested in high end costly products that promised the world & I spent a lot of money trying so many green products that were kind on the environment but not kind to my skin. A few years ago, I cleared everything out of my bathroom cabinet & went back to basics. Using only whole ingredients, preferably cold pressed and favouring natural ingredients that have a shorter shelf life, because nothing lives forever that’s nutritious right? I began to combine my favourite base ingredients & experimented with creating products first on myself and then on my friends. When the positive feedback started flooding in about how problematic skin was soothed, nourished & hydrated with humble beginnings Venus of Beauty products was launched. We are a small team, using only wholesome natural ingredients as nature intended, simplified packaging to be kind to the earth, publishing only honest testimonials from real people. We hope you enjoy our natural nutritious beauty products, may your skin look radiant & you feel amazing. Love the skin you're in! - Francesca
