Nourish | Hydrate | Soften
Delicate, yet powerful, our Skin Oil delivers nutrients and anti-inflammatory compounds through a powerful blend of traditional herbal extractions and dynamic oil, all while protecting our skins from further damage. Jojoba oil, sea buckthorn oil, and local Temecula olive oil together form a deeply hydrating base. The medicinal herbs infused into our olive oil, such as Calendula, are rich in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that soothe, repair, and restore burnout skin cells while diminishing sun spots in skin. Yarrow helps reduce the appearance of broken capillaries under the skin by strengthening the blood vessels and improving circulation, thus promoting a more even and healthier complexion. Gotu kola aids in improving skin health by stimulating collagen production, promoting wound healing, and enhancing skin's elasticity and firmness, resulting in a more youthful and revitalized appearance. Comfrey, known for its skin-regenerating properties, helps diminish the appearance of sunspots by promoting cellular turnover, reducing melanin production, and enhancing overall skin tone and texture, resulting in a more even and radiant complexion.
The Sunshine Difference
what sets us apart
Sunshine Rituals breaks from traditional sunscreen and skincare companies that recycle and reuse product recipes throughout the industry. Rather, we dedicate ourselves to creating the safest, most effective, and pure products to provide true transdermal nourishment and cellular optimization for the body’s largest organ, the skin.
Each ingredient is chosen for both its singularly potent and complementary effects, that marry with each and every single other ingredient, resulting in a rounded and multipotent formula.
At Sunshine Rituals, we challenge the norm of skincare. Our Naturopathic Doctor consciously crafted our unique formulas through extensive research and design. With knowledge and years of education in traditional herbal medicine and plant-based practices, we ensure our products are backed by the latest scientific research.
Full-spectrum extracts work due to their complexity in nature. Hundreds, if not thousands of molecules found in plants are tailored to work together for a specific purpose, making them more effective at lower doses with fewer side effects.
These vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants create a symphonic harmony allowing cells to properly absorb, metabolize, and utilize the herbal medicine to its full potential.
It’s the ancestral, genetic wisdom in our cells that requires all the components to work together properly, each serving as a vital cog in the ability of the medicine to take effect in the body.
In addition to boasting these synergistic, full-spectrum healing qualities, the oils form the base of our products. That means no empty fillers that typically make up the bulk of most skincare products. This truly packs in the maximum therapeutic potential for each Sunshine Rituals products, especially when we pair our herbal oil extracts with other organic, natural, and nutrient-dense ingredients.
We hope you enjoy each blend and Earth's powerful gifts within them.
What elevates our products above the rest is our natural ingredients and herbal oil extracts that form the base of our formulas. For most of history, topical formulas were typically crafted by macerating fresh or dried medicinal herbs in a variety of oils. All knowledge, then, of the healing effects of topical herbal medicine, has been acquired over the centuries of trial and error, is applicable largely to oil extracts.
The reason oils have long been used as a base for topical medicine is because oils are able to extract the majority of the anti-oxidants and volatile compounds that are essential for skin health and healing. Not to mention, oils are vital for optimal function at the cellular level where they are utilized to fortify cell membranes.
We gently heat and macerate our herbs in organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil grown locally in Temecula for long durations of time allowing the oils to fully penetrate the herbs before we strain and separate them. This gives us the most complete, full-spectrum, herbal extracts that create the bulk of our formula and what makes them so noticeably effective and delightful.
In the modern world, herbal extracts, isolated ingredients, and synthetic ingredients will typically be produced with the use of harsh solvents and reagents that alter and strip away most of the beneficial ingredients that were once part of a whole. These toxic ingredients and chemically modified substances leave residues behind and alter the natural activity of organically occurring compounds. This means that there is a trace amount of toxins being rubbed on your body, damaging DNA, and compromising long term skin health.
We partner with environmental focused nonprofits and foundations that help clean & protect our oceans, plant more trees, stop deforestation, and protect our open lands.
