Why Do I Need To Mix It Up Before I Use It?
Mix it up or shake it up, chances are you might need to give your Très Spa product a stir before using. Not all things, but some things like the body scrubs and the aromatic mists may separate when they are resting on the shelf. No need to panic. It's perfectly normal.
Squeeze To Mix
Sometimes, like with the body scrubs and the organic face cleanser, you need to mix it up. That is because the products do not contain any artificial stabilizers or suspenders to “hold it all together”. They come together like a handshake. When they are resting the heavier items may fall to the bottom while the oil rises to the top.
We could use wax to help with suspension and we do in a couple of products like the organic lip balms and the organic butter sticks, but wax has no place in an exfoliate. Even if the wax is from a leaf (we are Vegan Friendly so no Bee's wax for us). It's just too heavy and may build up. This would be counter productive for a scrub of any kind. The purpose of a scrub is to open up and flush out the skin pores while encouraging cell regeneration. That would be difficult to do if you are applying a layer of waxed oils over your skin.
Our purely natural products have a combination of plant oils and botanical ingredients. They don't all weigh the same. So, when the oil gets warm, heavier items will fall to the bottom and lighter oils lift to the top. No biggie, you just stir it up a little. (it's like using fresh handmade Almond milk or Cashew milk in your coffee or tea, without the guar gum, you gotta' stir it up a little.)
Shake It Up
If you have an Aromatic Mist from Très Spa, you're going to want to shake it up before you spray it. Oil and water don't mix. That is just a physical fact that will never change. Some things can be used to help the two get along and seem to mix better but that is as far as well can go naturally. Certainly there are synthetic chemicals that can help force the situation, but that is not us. We use only plant based ingredients and we tend to take a more gentle approach to nature. Trying to force things is just…. well… not natural.
So keep it natural, simple, elegant, and eco chic. Shake that bottle and give that bag a little squeeze when needed.
