There are many benefits to the natural ingredients used in our skin care products and we wanted to talk about some of them! In this blog, we are going to go over some of the ingredients we use to make our bath and body products and what benefits they can offer you. Read on to learn more and make the switch to natural products by shopping Sweet Grass Farm!

Shea Butter

You may know that shea butter is moisturizing and great for your skin, but this ingredient used in our lotions offers some additional benefits that you may not know about! One of the main benefits is that shea butter can offer anti-aging properties. Shea butter promotes collagen production in your skin and contains palmitic, oleic, stearic, and linolenic acids. These acids nourish and protect the skin to keep it moisturized and looking healthy. The vitamin A and E in shea butter helps to prevent wrinkles and fine lines.

On top of keeping your skin nourished, youthful, and hydrated, shea butter can provide a variety of other benefits. These include:

  • Providing itch relief
  • Reducing razor burn
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Soothes skin and diaper rash
  • Reduces skin inflammation


There are many benefits to shea butter which makes it a great addition in our natural lotions. But this is only one of the beneficial ingredients in our lotions and natural skincare products.

Beeswax

Beeswax is naturally produced by bees to form the structure of their hives. Bees use their beeswax to form the perfectly shaped honeycomb. While bees are incredible for their ability to create perfect hexagons over and over again, we are not here to talk about how amazing bees truly are. We are here to talk about the benefits of beeswax.

Our olive oil and beeswax lip balms contain beeswax, which may be obvious since it is in the name! But do you know why beeswax is so beneficial? One of the main benefits of beeswax is its ability to seal in moisture. This ingredient creates a barrier on the skin, or in this case your lips, and helps keep them moisturized and hydrated. This can be extremely beneficial during the dry and cold winter months. This barrier can also help prevent toxins and irritants from being absorbed by the skin.

While beeswax creates a barrier, it does not suffocate the skin, as petroleum jelly does. This allows your skin to breathe while being protected. Beeswax also contains Vitamin A. This helps with hydration and promotes the regeneration of skin cells. We add beeswax to our natural lip balm because of the hydrating and protective properties that it can provide you!

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is another beneficial ingredient that we use in a few of our bath and body products including our hand lotion and gardener’s bar soap. There are many benefits that coconut oil can provide your skin. No matter what skin type you may have, coconut oil can help improve the quality!

If you have acne-prone skin, coconut oil can help thanks to the antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is also great for hydrating the skin. Coconut oil can help retain moisture in the skin’s epidermal layers, which keeps the skin well moisturized. This can also help reduce fine lines that can be caused by dryness. Coconut oil also promotes the production of collagen, which can help tighten skin, even out skin tone, and make it more elastic!

Coconut oil is a great ingredient to look for in natural skin care products. Plus, if you simply buy a jar of coconut oil at the grocery store, you can use it for everything from a natural mouthwash to cooking substitute!

Essential Oils

All of our natural bath and body products also include essential oils. There is a huge variety of essential oils and each can provide a unique mix of benefits. Not only do they help make our products smell delightful, but they can also offer you the benefits you need. You can shop our bath and body products by fragrance, to help you get the scent and benefits you want or you can just find the product you want and enjoy the benefits the essential oil can offer.

From stress relief to improved brain function to natural bug repellant, these essential oils can provide you with a variety of benefits! In future blogs, we will talk about different essential oils and what benefits they can provide you.


These are only a few of the many natural and beneficial ingredients that we use in our skincare products. Each of these ingredients can provide you with benefits for your skin and health!
