What makes [be] essential’s products different from what I can get in the store?
Most of the traditional products you will find in stores are loaded with artificial and synthetic colors and fragrances, as well as chemicals, preservatives, and harsh ingredients which are often not only toxic to you and your family, but can be very drying and irritating to your skin. [be] essential products are made with only 100% all natural, non-toxic ingredients, most of which are organic. No preservatives, no harsh chemicals, fillers, or artificial ingredients – only safe and effective products.
What is the significance of the name [be] essential?
Each of our products begins with a unique blend of 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, specifically blended to be effective, yet safe to use. So, the name [be] essential refers to the essential oils that make our products so naturally awesome! Our name also has another significance in that we both believe in the importance of just “being”. Be present. Be awesome. Be alive. Be amazing. Be who and what you want to be. Just be. And as our tag line says….be well. be balanced. be essential.
What are essential oils and why are they so important?
Essential oils are the potent essences that come from various parts of a plant including the flowers, leaves, roots, seeds, resin, fruits, and wood, depending on the plant species. These essences are 100% pure and concentrated. Each essential oil has its own unique properties, which are beneficial to the mind and the body. By blending different oils together, we not only have each oil’s own unique properties, we also create other therapeutic compounds which are able to address things that the individual oils cannot do on their own.
What is the [be] essential guarantee?
Our [be] essential guarantee is our promise to you that you will never find any harsh chemicals, synthetic ingredients, colors or fragrances, or fillers. Only the real deal, in the purest form.
Are your products really safer and better?
Yes, and yes! By using only 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, and all natural (mostly organic) ingredients, our products are not only safer, but work just as well, if not better than other toxin-laden products. Our products contain no phthalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, parabens, benzene, chlorine, synthetic fragrances, triclosan….or other nasties…..EVER!
Are your products tested on animals?
“Tested”…..no NEVER! We are cruelty free…always! That’s not to say that we have not used some of our products on our fur babies before….because, they are our babies after all, and we believe in only the safest products for them as well!
What do I do if my deodorant is making my underarms red and irritated?
Occasionally, when stopping the use of a traditional chemical laden antiperspirant and starting the use of a safe and non-aluminum deodorant, redness in the pits will occur. Usually this is a detox symptom and it's your body adjusting to the new safer formula. It should subside within a day or two. Rarely, someone will have a sensitivity to the baking soda that is used in our deodorant. If the redness and irritation persists, stop use of the deodorant and contact us for a refund. We are currently working on a sensitive formula for those that need a lighter formula.
I left my body butter (or deodorant) in the hot car (or house, or purse, etc.) and it melted!! Now what?
Because these products are made with all natural ingredients (like Shea Butter, Coconut Butter, etc) they do melt at warmer temperatures. The best thing to do obviously is to keep these products in a cool, dark place.....but that's not aways possible. If any of your [be] essential products should melt, no worries!! First things first.....don't open it while melted, to avoid oil going everywhere! Pop them in the fridge to help them solidfy, and then continue using them. They may look different, but they will still work the same. The body butter will no longer be whipped, but it will work just as well. If you have any specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!
