S.W. Basics takes care to make its face and body creams with as few ingredients as possible and highlights the four-ingredients that go into the making of its Juniper Cream and Lavender Cream products. Both products boasts ingredient lists that are so short that they fits onto the front of the recyclable metal tube packaging. They read: fair trade organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic olive oil and either organic juniper or lavender oil.
Although there are few ingredients that make up the products, each serves a specific purpose for skincare. While shea butter is rich in fatty acids that nourish the skin, coconut oil and extra-virgin olive oil are high in both in lauric acid and monounsaturated fats. On top of this, lavender and juniper are both known for their soothing properties and scents.
