This lush, creamy face balm with a satin finishing texture provides deep moisturisation and enhances skin elasticity.

The Earthwise Beauty face balm collection has long been missing a product for very dry skin. The Isadora Face Balm fills this gap. Boasting a buttery, creamy, delicate texture, Isadora offers outstanding hydrating, conditioning, emollient, and protective qualities.

All skin types, especially dry to very dry and with eczema or psoriasis.

We also recommend this balm for daytime protection for use on ski slopes or when traveling to windy or high-altitude destinations.

Colour: A pale opaque yellow with a hint of green.


This lush, elegant, easy-to-spread face balm is named after Isadora Duncan, the pioneer larger-than-life American modern dancer who stirred dance audiences, particularly in Europe, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Duncan's dance style was lyrical and feminine, yet had a certain intensity and was often read as provocative. She loved to perform in flowy, ancient-Grecian-inspired gowns. Duncan's mission was to choreograph for women and express through her dance pieces the full range of what a woman could be, in opposition to the prevalent view of the time which said a dancer must be a barely-there nymph imprisoned in a corset and toe shoes. Duncan held bold views and was a thought pioneer, while as a dancer she was full of originality, artistry, and femininity.

For a product named after a light-footed dancer like Isadora, the scent of course had to be lifting, elevating, ethereal, with rose and neroli in the mix. Of course, even the lightest and airiest of dances is underpinned by a strong sense of connection to the ground, and we added a smoky component at the base of this scent to offer balance and originality.


BENEFITS

Face balms come in a wide range of textures, which is one reason they often attract skincare texture collectors and connoisseurs. Isadora Balm is created without any potentially pore-clogging waxes, and has a fine, delicate, slightly powdery but still juicy texture. This balm delivers deep and lasting moisture, a dose of antioxidants, and protective qualities from a wealth of ultra-effective plant oils and butters.

  • Shea butter: Earthwise Beauty's hand-extracted, unrefined, undeodorised shea butter from Ghana smells smoky, yet also woody. Because shea butter does not become fully absorbed, but remains on the surface of the skin, it offers lasting protection from moisture loss and from harsh wintry or windy weather.
  • Tomato seed oil: An especially effective oil for dry and mature skin, tomato seed oil dramatically improves the appearance of wrinkled, sun-damaged, dull, or neglected skin. It contains protective carotenoids (lycopene, zeaxanthin) and vitamin E, and has a delightfully creamy texture.
  • Baobab seed oil: This sustainably sourced baobab oil is a thick oil that is indispensable for alleviating very dry skin. Baobab seed oil is rich in vitamins E, D, and F, and also contributes firming and pore-minimising properties.
  • Prickly pear seed oil: EWB sources their precious prickly pear oil from a certified organic grower in Morocco. This noncomedogenic oil is high in vitamin E and linoleic acid, has a fine, silky texture, and is very promptly absorbed by the skin.
  • Moringa seed oil: Unrefined moringa oil smells of freshly picked, homegrown string beans, so perhaps unsurprisingly, this superfood oil is as healthy for our skin as fresh vegetables are for our diet. The moringa leaf is used in Ayurveda as a tonic and detoxifier. The oil is thick and dry, contains a plethora of vitamins and minerals, and hydrates the skin. It also helps to extend the shelf life of the balm.
  • Copaiba balsam resin: This cold-press, wildcrafted resin is a traditional herbal medicine in the Amazon region, revered for its antiseptic and pain-relieving properties. In skincare, copaiba offers powerful long-term skin-firming effects, anti-inflammatory soothing properties, and protection against acne breakouts.
  • Vitamin C: EWB has included a relatively low percentage of oil-soluble active vitamin C in the form of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. We have found that many customers with sensitive or dry skin have trouble tolerating products with a high percentage of active vitamin C, as they can cause persistent skin dryness. We experimented and found that low-percentage oil-soluble vitamin C is very well tolerated by these groups, and still delivers results. With daily, consistent use of this face balm, you can expect to see a brightening effect from the vitamin C, as well as a reduction in skin discoloration.
  • Carrot seed oil: Carrot seed oil is one of leading aromatherapist Valerie Ann Worwood's top recommended oils for mature and wrinkled skin. It's also found that it benefits skin types with psoriasis or eczema.

 

THE SCENT AND ENERGETIC IMPACT

The scent of Isadora starts with a base of fresh yet smoky shea butter, which is elevated by high notes of Tunisian orange blossom, green and subdued Moroccan Rose de Mai, pink lotus from India, invigorating citrus leaf, and marzipan-like ambrette. Overall, the scent is light and is designed to dissipate quickly.

The energy of Isadora is like that of a dancer: It lifts you off your feet with thoughts of air, a light breeze, and running barefoot on fine sand on the beach.

 

EARTHWISE BEAUTY FACE BALM COMPARISON

EWB currently offers multiple face balms, which are all quite different from one another.

Choose Isadora Face Balm if you are seeking an intensely hydrating and emollient face balm for dry skin or facial protection from harsh winds and cold. The next step lighter product is Thelma Lip Treatment, which makes for an excellent healing, soothing, and deeply penetrating all-over-the-face balm.

While all dry skin types will benefit from incorporating both of these products into their routines, very dry skin types, especially with eczema or roughness, will benefit most from layering Thelma and then Isadora as a facial treatment, especially for nighttime.

Acne-prone and combination skin types may choose between Tigress Face Balm and Yasuni Face Balm. Tigress contains antibacterial and anti-acne ingredients along with dry, noncomedogenic oils and butters. Yasuni Face Balm is a versatile, multitasking, noncomedogenic light face balm.

Normal, combination, and young skin will do best with Yasuni Face Balm most of the year, but keep in mind that you should boost your routine with a face oil underneath the balm whenever Yasuni seems too light. Ruby Face Oil is EWB's lightest face oil and Black Locust Firming Concentrate is a second, richer choice.

Green Leaves is a "juicy" type of balm that was designed for dry and mature skin with acne. It heals acne breakouts with lemon thyme while preventing acne scars. Its base is melt-on-contact anti-inflammatory and hydrating virgin coconut oil, and the scent of Green Leaves is just irresistible: violet leaf, holy basil, and French lavender.

 

SKIN TYPES

All skin types, especially dry to very dry and with eczema or psoriasis. We also recommend this balm for daytime protection for use on ski slopes or when traveling to windy or high-altitude destinations.

 

HOW TO USE

Massage into freshly cleansed skin day and night. We particularly recommend using Isadora as a nighttime nourishing and protective balm-mask.

Massage a relatively generous amount into the skin thirty minutes to one hour before bedtime using outward circular motions. If using for daytime for very dry skin or as a means of protection from wind and cold, follow with a mattifying foundation, tinted moisturiser, or face powder.

 

PROTECTING THE FRESHNESS & POTENCY

EWB's small-batch, organic skincare is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. EWB products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with them. So, here is our suggestion:

  • Order only as much skincare at a time as you hope to use within 3 - 6 months
  • Store the skincare products you use daily or almost daily at room temperature (even better if you are willing to store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 months)
  • To avoid microbial contamination, reach into the jars with freshly cleaned, dry hands or use a clean, thoroughly dry scoop. Always close the lids and caps tightly.
  • Protect all products from excessive heat. Shake the closed bottles periodically to mix.
