VenaSilk Cream with Palmarosa and Elemi

VenaSilk Cream with Palmarosa and Elemi is based on our natural emulsification and conditioning system that includes Sodium Behenyl Lactylate (SBL), Behenyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate and VenaSilk. We have combined our natural emulsification system with Shea Butter Organic, Rice Bran Oil, and our Calendula Extract OS for optimum skin softening, conditioning and moisturization. Plantago Extract provides humectancy and skin smoothing benefits. Leucidal Liquid is a natural preservative that works well in this formula. Palmarosa Essential Oil and Elemi Essential Oil combine beautifully in this balancing and rejuvenating cream.
