Miss Lily’s ‘Smarvellous Moisturising Cream

Certified-organic Camellia & Jojoba Oils, & unrefined Shea Butter, with therapeutic-grade Lavender, Rosemary, Frankincense & Helichrysum italicum essential oils. – 50 g

 

Miss Lily’s ‘Smarvellous Moisturising Cream is sure to care for your skin and give it a deep and lasting moisturising experience. Shea butter, the main carrier in this cream, is a superior active moisturiser known for its abundance of helpful ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique fatty acid profile said to restore the skin’s natural elasticity and enable it to absorb moisture from the air, keeping skin moisturised for longer. The shea butter is complemented by jojoba and camellia oils. Both are nourishing and hypo-allergenic and have deep absorption. Camellia oil, in particular is reputed to have highly restorative, rejuvenating, anti-aging and moisture-retaining qualities.

Rosemary derives its name from Latin, meaning “Dew of the Sea,” and its essential oil forms the basis of the soothing scent of this cream. It is also known historically as a powerful oil to moisturise dry skin. The essential oils of lavender and frankincense are also a must in skin care regimes for dry skin types. While lavender has a strong reputation for its antiseptic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and decongestant properties (an all-round healing agent), frankincense is said to be particularly beneficial for dry and mature skin, with its reputed anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent properties. Finally, we added a dab of Helichrysum italicum essential oil. This precious and powerful essential oil is highly valued by connoisseurs for its reputed extraordinary healing and rejuvenating powers.

If you are looking for a comprehensive day & night moisturiser combination, we recommend pairing Miss Lily’s ‘Smarvellous Cream for your nights with Miss Lily’s Swellegant Moisturising Cream for your mornings.

Although both are specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin, they do provide benefits for all skin types.

All the oils in this product are certified-organic. All essential oils are therapeutic-grade. We use unrefined, fair-trade, certified-organic Shea butter.

We use certified-organic, vegetable-based and palm-oil free glycerin. As this is a water-oil-based cream, we use Emulsifier O (cetearyl olivate & sorbitan olivate), which is derived from olives, and we use Geogard 221 (benzyl alcohol & dehydroacetic acid) as a preservative (a must-do in any cosmetics containing water), which is approved for use in organic products. Both are Ecocert approved.

We hope that in the future we will be able to obtain eco-certification for our products, so please support us on our journey, and let us know all your feedback.

What's in a name?

‘Smarvellous (adj.): contraction of the phrase “‘Tis marvellous” (itself a contraction of “It is marvellous”); appears in the 1927 popular song “‘S Wonderful”, written by George Gershwin (music) and Ira Gershwin (lyrics) for the Broadway musical Funny Face, starring Fred and Adele Astaire, later adapted to the 1957 movie of the same title, starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire.

    Fabulous moisturiser, am using it in conjunction with “Swellergent” and they both feel and smell amazing.

  2. Peter Fraser

    I love this product- I have been using it now for about a month. It really does feel luxurious to use, absorbs into the skin beautifully and is subtlety fragranced. Also great value compared to equivalent products. I highly recommend this product.
