Natural Products for Mom with Moxxie Essential Care


Many of you entered to win a soap, solid sugar scrub cubes, and body creme last month from Moxxie Essential Care. Jackie, the creator/owner, was so pleased with your interest that she has decided to sponsor another giveaway…a much bigger giveaway! For those of you that didn’t read my previous review, you can go HERE.


To remind you….Moxxie products contain no parabens, no phalates, no detergents, and no synthetics. Moxxie produces cold processed soaps that are made with fatty oils, with lye and water. This process is called saponification, which creates glycerin and soap. Many soap companies extract the glycerin and add synthetic fragrances, artificial moisturizers and other chemical additives to mass produce their cheap soap…but not Moxxie!


Moxxie’s cold processed soap is made with only pure food grade edible plant oils like olive, palm and coconut. These are the base oils for the soap. Combinations of aloe vera oil, castor oil, almond oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, wheat germ oil, and cocoa butter are added to create specific beneficial moisturizing and conditioning properties. Moxxie also uses essential oils to provide scent and other benefits, no artificial fragrance oils. For texture and color, Moxxie adds natural whole botanicals such as herbs, flowers and teas. In a few soaps small amounts of non-toxic clays, minerals and iron oxides are added to enhance color and texture and provide other beneficial properties. Moxxie soap cures for a minimum of 4 weeks. This process creates moisturizing soaps that are good for your body and the planet.


I was sent an assortment of Moisturizing Body Cremes. Jackie sent me a 4 oz Citrus Blend and 1 oz of each of the other scents: Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Peppermint. This package made for one happy girl! The body creme is made with Water, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Vegetable Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Phenoxyethanol and Caprylyl Glycol, Tocopherol (vitamin E), and pure essential oils. The body creme contains no parabens, no mineral oils, no petroleum products and no synthetics. Jackie is not trying to hide anything with her products. You can see ingredients to every one of her products online. Her body cremes are 95% natural, as you can probably tell from the ingredient list above.


The body creme is not greasy at all! It absorbs really quickly and is great for dry skin. I like that Moxxie products are scented with pure essential oils! The Citrus Blend has a mixture of grapefruit and lime essential oils and has a very sweet smell to it. The other cremes are more straight forward scented with peppermint, eucalyptus and lavender essential oils. The Lavender creme makes me feel like I am in the middle of a lavender field…it smells amazing! The Peppermint creme smells like a sweet candy cane and the Eucalyptus definitely smells like eucalyptus! My daughter is a little stuffed up right now and I am going to use the eucalyptus body creme on her and see if it helps! One thing I love about these body cremes is that the scent smells very strong in the container, but once you have been wearing it a while the scent goes down.  I can still smell it, but I it is not overpowering. I look forward to wearing these cremes more in the winter because it gets so dry where I live!



You can buy Moxxie products directly from the website or visit a few Southern California shops that carry their products. Moxxie is also available at the Fullerton Farmer’s Market every Thursday evening and the occasional craft fair! Moxxie Essential Care products are all made in Santa Ana, California. The soaps are valued at $5.95, the body creme is $7 for 4 oz and $10 for 8 oz, and the solid sugar scrub cubes are $8. {Moxxie Solid Sugar Scrub Cubes are the best solid sugar scrub I have ever used and I love the Peppermint ones}
