Of Buns and Zen Cream
The best laid plans of buns and zen will never lead you astray. This cream starts out with raw shea butter which is then whipped together with nourishing plant extracts (including not one, not two, but three different kinds of tea!) and light hydrating oils. The stars? Raspberry seed oil and real wasabi extract, both loaded with tons of those awesome antioxidants. Plus, wasabi extract actually has soothing qualities (SURPRISE!).
The natural aroma comes from shot of tea tree oil—traditionally valued for its natural anti-septic properties and useful for acne-prone skin—and lavender oil to soothe away irritation. Fresh and medicinal with back-notes of herbaceous floral and earthy spice.
Ingredients (net weight 2 oz): water, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, oryza sativa (rice) bran oil, emulsifying wax NF (vegetable based), butyrospermum parkii (shea butter) fruit, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, rubus idaeus (raspberry) seed oil, stearic acid, glycine soja (soy) oil, melaleuka alternifolia (tea tree) oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, syzgium aromaticum (clove) oil, glycerin, lactobacillus/wasabia japonica root ferment extract, gingko biloba leaf extract, olea europaea (olive) leaf extract, aspalathus linearis (rooibos) leaf extract, camellia sinesis (white tea) leaf extract, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, phenoxyethanol & caprylyl glycol (preservative), tocopherol (vitamin E)
(NOTE: Complexion Zen fans: the general formula of this cream remains the same, but we spiffed it up with a load of plant extracts. After over five years, the price was due to rise to catch up with ingredient costs, but we figured we'd give you a bit more for your money. Same great cream with the same texture... but FANCIER and even more nourishing!)
