Natural Ingredients

slide_natural_ingredientsThe skincare products in our Pixy Natural Skincare range are made lovingly by hand using no parabens, no SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), no SLES (sodium laureth sulfate) using natural ingredients, no ingredients made from animals and we don’t test them on animals. The use of packaging is kept to a minimum. Each Pixy product contains just the right amount of preservative needed to keep our natural skincare range in peak condition for you to enjoy.

Our Pixy body butters and creams are made with shea butter, cocoa butter and natural oils which are whipped up to be light, rich and creamy to gently moisturise the skin. Our lip balms, cuticle balms, hand creams and massage bars also contain beeswax which forms a barrier to protect the skin from the elements.

Sweet almond, apricot, and vitamin E oils moisturise and condition your skin. Some oils are rich in omega oils and vitamins to increase the elasticity of your skin.

The honey and goats’ milk powders draw water to the skin to retain moisture, maintaining your skin’s delicate pH balance. The essential oils add fragrance and their own distinctive effects – relaxing, soothing, healing, invigorating.

Some PIXY products are decorated with fruits and flowers – rosebuds, lavender flowers, dried peppermint leaves or studded with poppy seeds, loofah, candelilia beads and oatmeal to gently exfoliate.

Embracing the wisdom of thousands of years, PIXY’s natural ingredients harness the benefits of Mother Nature’s rich store of plants that promote well-being and regeneration.
