Mother Nature has an abundance of ingredients that purify and nourish our skin and also elevate our well-being. Being a small-batch beauty company, we are involved in every step of the process of creating and formulating our products to delivering to our beau-TEAL-full customers. We are really proud that our products are handmade with 100% pure ingredients that we absolutely love.
Nadia, our founder, has always had a passion for skin and body care; self-care is a big part of not just the women, but also the men of her family. She carries their mantra that the best ingredients are 100% natural, free of chemical toxins. While at school, Nadia started working at the counters of major cosmetic brands. She followed this passion and worked in the marketing and advertising of global luxury beauty brands.
Teal N Bronze is Nadia’s celebration of her love for pure natural ingredients where less is definitely more. Her passion for the environment puts sustainability front-and-center for the brand. We are mindful, from the sourcing of premium plant-based USDA-certified ingredients, to toxin-free formulations, to the design and packaging of every single product. Yes, each of our products are vegan and gender-neutral. And rest assured, the only testing we do is with the team and human volunteers. This is our clean and ethical beauty story and thanks for being a big part of it.
Here are our favourite ingredients straight from Mother Nature with our special touch.
1. SHEA BUTTER Specially Whipped Silky & Smooth
Extracted from shea tree nuts, Shea Butter is rich in fatty acids and vitamins perfect for softening your skin. Using shea butter on your body will condition, tone, and soothe your skin.
Beau-TEAL-ful Fact: Did you know this favourite ingredient also reduces inflammation and blemishes?
Mix with different essential oils, all carrier oils are whipped perfectly to leave a long-lasting, but light finish using just a small dab. Ascension Armour Body Butter is for those who want a richer treatment with four of the richest carrier oils.This has more moisturizing than any other product on the market. You can choose our Zen-Z Body Butter with lavender essential oil to nourish your skin, with aroma-therapeutic properties to calm your mind. This plant wonder is also perfect for dry feet as it reduces skin cells that retain odour. And have you met our coffee and lemon versions?
2. COFFEE OIL to Arouse Your Body & Senses
Java Jazz Body Butter combines the power of coffee and cinnamon bark oil with our whipped shea butter. Coffee has high amounts of Vitamin E, antioxidants and other essential nutrients to further soothe and moisturize your skin. Combined with cinnamon oil, this butter blend also helps with acne and skin conditions while moisturizing and improving blood circulation. This is one of our first products and continues to be a top seller.

3. LEMONS are definitely not just for Lemonades
Cold pressed from the fresh fruit peel of lemons, you get lemon essential oil that is cleansing and detoxifying. This oil is perfect for treating and clearing skin by reducing excessive oil. Lush Lemon Body Butter combines the anti-bacterial power of lemon oil while you are also moisturizing. The 100% natural lemon scent will bring a ray of pure sunshine with its mood-enhancing qualities.

4. MINERAL SEA SALTS to Soothe & Detoxify
Sea Salts come directly through the evaporation of seawater with minimal or no processing. Our Restoration Salt Soak contains all the minerals in sea salt, plus magnesium flakes to bottle the healing power of the sun. All these natural ingredients not only detoxify but also help with blood circulation and any skin inflammation. We love how just a single bath can relax and sooth your muscle and joint aches. This is the perfect treat especially after a long stressful day.
Beau-TEAL-ful Fact: Did you know the National Eczema Foundation in the US recommends adding one cup of salt to bathwater to help relieve irritation from eczema and provides relief for psoriasis?
5. MULTANI MITTI CLAY to Purify for Your Best Skin Health
Multani Mitti clay is often called the miracle beauty of today. This ingredient has been used in traditional remedies to improve skin health for centuries in India. Multani Mitti clay truly purifies your skin with its deep cleansing properties and removes excess oils. We incorporated this in our soap formulation for our Multi-Use Cleansing Bar. Infused with essential oils, this gentle exfoliating bar makes it the perfect starter for any daily regime. The high composition of the clay in our Purifying Masque makes this the perfect complement for an even deeper pore cleanse. Your skin will feel luxuriously light and smoother instantly.
