When I purchase hair and body products, I do my best to check the ingredients and make sure they're strictly organic and simple - no added fillers or harsh chemicals. It's also important to me to find companies that truly care about my health as well as the health of others. I crave the opportunity to "meet" the face behind the brand and choose to support a world changer.
Jillian Haddad, the owner, creator, and maker of Butter Me Up Organics, is a phonomenal woman who has poured her heart and soul into providing high quality products. Here is a powerful statement from her website:
"I started Butter Me Up for myself back in 2008. I was living in Pasadena and had always been VERY particular about the products I used on myself. At that time, that meant you shopped at Whole Foods or the lucky boutique you ran across once every 5 years that didn't just make things that smelled good. Finally, one day after spending $25 on a body butter, I thought to myself, 'I can make this'...and Butter Me Up Organics was created. I spent the next THREE years pouring over ingredients, benefits, quality, safety, certifications and where the ingredients came from and carefully crafted each recipe with purpose. Each recipe is my own and many, many hours of care and research was poured into every one. I chose things not on the cost but for the most benefit each recipe could bring. I designed everything to have the most therapeutic qualities possible in the bottle/jar/tin. I continue to hand make each product today."
Jillian sent me 3 different products to try: Pink Himalayan Sea Hair Texturizer Spray, Citrus Calendula Soap and sunscreen. She has definitely left an imprint on my life and I couldn't be more honored to share about my experience with her beautifully and purposefully made products.
First up is this incredibly smooth and wonderful smelling sunscreen. Jillian has combined simple organic ingredients to naturally protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays. My skin naturally doesn't sunburn unless at the beach under the intense sunshine for hours at a time. On normal days, however, I still spend every opportunity outside in the sun. Because of this, I do want to protect my skin and help deter some of the harmful exposure. I've been searching for a sunscreen that I could trust and that doesn't have the chemicals and fillers. I definitely recommend this sunscreen. It doesn't take much product to apply it to exposed areas.
I can hardly contain my excitement about this Pink Himalayan Sea Hair Texturizer Spray! Just the name of it inspires me! And the smell?! JASMINE ROSE! I literally want to spray it around my room! I have used it several times and couldn't ask for a better product. I have very fine hair so I'm always looking for added texture - even to just throw my hair up in a bun. It definitely gives the perfect messy beachy waves.
Last but definitely not least, is the Citrus Calendula Soap. It reminds me of the homemade organic soap my mom used to make. It's AMAZING! Besides being beautiful to look at, it's silky smooth and has a slight lather. You know that amazing earthy/herb smell when you walk into Whole Foods? This soap captures that scent :) Quick tip - If you're like me, you leave the soap in the shower only to have it wasted by the water continually running over it. Make sure to keep your soap out of reach from the water. :)
