We often get asked how we make our little tins of scented wonder?! Well, it's a mixture of hard work, months of development and magic! What we often forget to tell people, is the benefit it brings ... above and beyond smelling great all day long!
Ingredient number one... Shea butter. In it's natural form, is an all natural Vitiman-A cream. It's super hydrating and even has healing super powers for the skin (used to treat blemishes, wrinkles and even eczema.
We source our super soft shea from Africa - harvested in its pure form from the nut of the Shea Tree.
So next time you reach for a chemically enhanced moisturiser - think of the humble Shea Butter.
Produced for M.V Kingston by the industrious worker bees, which form honeycomb cells in which to raise their young. Our British Beeswax, when applied topically, has amazing benefits for our skin. It has antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties are why it's often used in things like lip balm - these hold true for our skin too...
Why stop there? Beeswax has been known to be used to clean hair (particularly Dreads) and even waterproof clothing and those trusty old boots!
Vitamin E, vitamin A, mono-saturated fatty acids, protein, potassium, and zinc. BOOM! Almond oil has it all.
Vit E keeps your skin cells healthy, protects your skin from UV rays and helps your skin look smooth, soft, and free of those lines on your face that suggest one to many nights on the sauce... The fatty acids help your skin retain moisture.
The Scent ...
Locked deep in the vault at the good ship M.V Kingston - is our amazing scents which bring the product to life and stands us out from our pesky imitators!
Months of development goes into getting our recipes right, so of course, we're not going to let you know exactly what's in it! What we will tell you is that the scents are formed from carefully mixing essential fragrant oils, they are paraben free and vegan friendly.
Our products are NOT TESTED on Animals or contain any Animal Derivatives.
* Note that beeswax is present in M.V Kingston, this is a by-product of the bees hard work, this means our products do contain animal products and are not 100% Vegan (however many vegans are comfortable with the use of Beeswax as it is a by product).
