Urban Alchemist is a local Toronto based brand that crafts unique self care products with simple ingredients.
What Are the Ingredients?
Urban Alchemist uses just a few, simple ingredients in every product, using organic and fair trade as much as possible.
- Organic + Fair Trade Olive Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Organic Hemp Seed Oil
- Organic Beeswax
- Organic + Fair Trade Shea Butter
- Organic Matcha Green Tea
- Rosehip Oil
- Organic Bergamot Oil
The olive, sweet almond, and rosehip oils seriously hydrate, while the hemp seed oil and shea butter reduce inflammation. The beeswax gives the balm a wonderful texture that's not too light or too heavy, and the matcha green tea gives you a healthy dose of antioxidants.
What's So Unique?
Well I've never come across a body balm that combines the antioxidants in matcha with the calming properties of bergamot oil.
But it's not just the ingredients, it's the texture and scent of this balm that made it an instant favourite.
The texture isn't thick, but it's not light, it's somewhere in the middle. The balm is instantly soothing, hydrating, and it works on even the driest areas.
The scent is light, with natural, herbal notes from the matcha, but floral notes from the beeswax, and of course a light scent of bergamot, one of my favourite scents. They all work together beautifully.
As with all of the Urban Alchemist products I've tried, I'm super in love with this hydrating balm. It's become part of my evening ritual that I really look forward to.
