Countdown to Christmas: A Week Of Lush Never Mind The Ballistics

Countdown to Christmas: A Week Of Lush Never Mind The Ballistics

Every year people panic to find the perfect gift. We at T2C have been collecting idea’s all year long to bring you the perfect gift guide at all price levels. When you’re at the end of your rope trying to find the perfect Christmas present this year, come to this guide for some great suggestions.

One of my favorite products is Lush. Lush produces creams, soaps, shampoos, shower gels, lotions, moisturizers, scrubs, masks and other cosmetics for the face, hair, and body using only vegetarian or vegan recipes. Lush products are 100% vegetarian and make you skin, hair and body feel as if you have been transported. Lush is  known for their bath bomb which are solid bars of sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, essential oils and natural butters that fizz out and can produce an array of colors.

Never Mind The Ballistics, LushIn Never Mind The Ballistics ($7.95), lime and sweet wild orange oils are exciting the senses and shaking up your mood. There’s no time for apathy in the bath, with this no-holds-barred energy. Fair trade cocoa butter melts alongside fresh bananas to soften both the water and your skin.

The cacao tree (Theobroma cacao – ‘the food of the gods’) is native to tropical America and can grow up to approximately thirty feet tall. The tree yields fruit in its fourth year in the form of dark red or brown pods. These pods, in turn, yield up to fifty seeds.

To make cocoa butter, these seeds are fermented, which removes their bitterness. They are then cleaned, roasted and cracked to remove their hard shells. These ‘cocoa nibs’ are ground to a thick, oily paste called chocolate liquor.

The fat removed from the liquor goes through high pressure to separate the cocoa butter and cocoa powder. The butter is more than 50 % of the cocoa bean. It is rendered into pale yellow cocoa butter. Unlike most fats, the butter is not greasy. It has a hard consistency and smells like chocolate.

We owe our knowledge of cocoa to the Aztecs. They created the original form of hot chocolate, which was a fiery, chocolate drink.

The butter is a natural emulsifier and softening for the skin. It is said to effectively relieve itchy, dry skin when applied topically. We use it across our entire range of products for its softening, moisturizing and conditioning properties.

Cocoa butter is a stable and dry butter. It can be used in combination with other natural butters to create rich blends. In our massage bars, including Wiccy Magic Muscles, Therapy, Heavanilli and Strawberry Feels Forever, cocoa butter works with the other natural ingredients, reacts to the temperature of the body and melts over the skin, making it supple and smooth.
