Hello, The cooler weather will soon be upon us and it often takes a toll on my dry skin. My skin can get very dry and chapped in lower temperatures. I stumbled upon McEvoy Ranch 80 Acres Verde Olive Oil Body Balm and it is amazing! McEvoy Ranch is located in Petaluma, California and they are known for their certified organic olive oil. The olive oils are sold in certain supermarkets and you can taste the olive oils before you buy at their retail store in San Francisco. You can get more information about the olive oils and their 80 Acres body care products in their website.
This body balm is made with their trademark certified organic extra virgin olive oil along with a few other simple natural ingredients. This is everything I look for in a body moisturizer. I will tell you why......
Ingredients - 97% certified organic ingredients. Olive oil content is 81%. You will see the full ingredient listing from the back label in the picture above. Ingredients include olive and jojoba oils, beeswax, and vitamin E. All come with natural antioxidants that can provide protection and nourish the skin
Texture - It comes in a soft balm in a glass jar. Take a little, warm and melt it in hands, then spread it onto the skin. I prefer a balm or oil based moisturizer. I like the feel of how the product glides on, it feels like a luxurious treatment. My dry and sensitive skin can tolerate the oils in this product. It absorbs into the skin quickly without a lot of massaging. The product will leave a light protective film on the skin which does not bother me because it is not a greasy film
Scent - Verde is mostly citrus with some lavender and ylang ylang. It is a fresh and green scent. The body balm also comes in Lavender and Blood Orange (new) scents
