In addition, we use the 100% naturally sourced exfoliant crushed walnut shell powder, in many of our face scrubs. 100% naturally sourced moisturizers, like soybean oil and plant based glycerin, go into our our body lotions, and 100% naturally sourced extracts, like orchid, into our body washes. St. Ives is here to revitalize your skin, so give your skin what it craves. It’s glow time.
Where We Source Our Ingredients
We are inspired by nature’s most delicious and nurturing elements. Because of that, we work to source nothing but the very best We are inspired by nature’s most delicious and nurturing elements. Because of that, we work to source nothing but great ingredients. But where does the good stuff come from? All over the world really. Let’s take a look at the journey our ingredients take from nature to glow.
From the very beginning, we’ve been superfans of apricots. We know those fuzzy fruits well, it’s kind of our thing. We pick the juiciest fruits all year round from sunny California or North Africa, depending on the season.
Our walnuts are grown in California’s sun-kissed orchards. They are harvested in the fall after they have been nurtured and fully grown. The shells are then milled to just the right size with a rounded edge to give a deep but gentle exfoliation, just the way we like it.
Our shea butter comes from the shea tree, native to Africa. The shea tree grows nuts which hold all the good stuff that we love. The butter is extracted and refined so only great elements make it inside our bottles.
Our milky coconuts are harvested from Caribbean palm trees. The nuts are cracked open and the milk is extracted from the flesh by a gentle water-soaking process. No harsh chemicals! Just the irresistible coconut milk, the good stuff.
The 100% naturally sourced extracts we use in our body washes also come from around the world, from our zesty, Californian pink lemons and mandarin peels, to our pears that are grown in orchards across the USA. Pears ripen from inside out. They’re handpicked just before ripening and then the nectar is gently extracted to keep in all that juicy goodness. Our sea salt extract derives from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, bringing the best of the beach to your bath. All of our body washes have that ingredient that makes you go “ahh” and we are committed to sourcing wholesome ingredients to make you do just that!
Sourcing great ingredients is our passion to bring you the #DeliciousNature you deserve.
