Buddha And The Bees uses only the freshest ingredients that are well-known and easy to pronounce. We do not add petroleum-based agents commonly used to extend the life and enhance the “face feel” of other facial creams on the market. To ensure the cream stays fresh for months, we use a natural preservative, leucidal liquid, derived from radish root ferment. Plus, we make our products so you’ll want to use them, rather than sitting unused in your medicine cabinet for years. The Rose Face Cream contains aloe vera to further soothe and smoothe your skin.
