Being all of our Aimee Raupp Beauty products are pure enough to eat, the answer is: yes. But, children don't need all of Aimee's products. However, Aimee has regularly uses the following products on her son Jaymes: the Happy Baby Balm (this product was handcrafted for his baby soft skin), Mag- Ease Oil (but she does only 2 sprays TOTAL; and this product is not recommended for use on children under 1 years of age), Blemish Be Gone stick (works amazing for any bug bites or warts), Body Butter and Lip Balm. And, when Jaymes can, he sneaks in a bite or two of the Organic Sugar Scrub.
Aimee Raupp Beauty is packaged in all glass containers. As well, we ship our products in recycled packaging materials (and sometimes we even repurpose used boxes). We do our best to keep our footprint as small as possible.
When using natural ingredients, there can be a variance of color and even consistency. With using organic and wildcrafted ingredients, the weather conditions and season impact the product. Although the color in some products may vary in appearance it does not alter their effectiveness. The same goes for consistency, as some of our oils are more solid in colder temperatures and more liquid in warmer temperatures but are not negatively impacted by either. Since we are adamant about not using any colorants or additives our products may appear differently from batch to batch but that will never impact their performance.
There are a few ways our products can help to balance your hormones AND rejuvenate your glow:
- Our products are 100% free of toxins that are known endocrine disrupters. Even most natural skincare still use such chemicals. We don’t craft the products with anything potentially harmful including soy or any of its derivatives – many vitamin E oils come from soy.
- The ingredients we use are powerful anti-inflammatory agents that are high in essential fatty acids (EFAs). Essential fatty acids are three types of unsaturated good fats: Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9. These fats act to create responsive and healthy cell membranes, allowing hormones to adhere to the cell more easily. Omega-3 fatty acids also aid the body in keeping the cellular receptor sites (where hormones bind) repaired and in optimal condition. Additionally, these EFAs not only support a graceful aging process and leave your complexion glowing, but they also bring balance to hormones. Some of these hormone-balancing EFAs that you’ll find in our formulas include cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil, rosehip oil, sesame oil, and argan oil.
- All our formulas support liver detoxification by being void of harsh chemicals, but also by containing good-for-you ingredients that help harness the liver’s powerful detoxifying pathways. Essential oils like blue chamomile, lavender, lemongrass, lemon and grapefruit help the liver do its job so that your hormones don't get backed up.
