Chuck and Sam
Just Like Honey
Description: Skin that’s dry AND acne-prone? Most products out there only address one of those problems while exacerbating the other. Raw honey to the rescue!
We source our 100% raw and organic honey from the Canadian wilderness, miles from any residential, agricultural, or industrial site. Since bees have a flying radius of around 5 miles, it can be nearly impossible to ensure that honey is truly “organic.” To be on the safe side, each batch is tested for the presence of glyphosate and other pesticides. The honey is never heated above 90 degrees (hive temperature), ensuring that the beneficial enzymes are active. Like the bees use their wings to create friction and raise the hive temperature, we whip our honey to get it (moderately) pourable, giving it a light and smooth consistency. It’s unlike any other honey we’ve tried! (And we’ve tried a lot).
Size: 4oz (120mL)
The enzymes in honey naturally fight acne-causing bacteria while balancing skin pH to prevent future breakouts. Even better: honey draws moisture into the skin to balance oil production.
Organic neroli oil is known to regenerate skin cells and improve skin elasticity. Organic red mandarin oil reduces stress.
Remove makeup and pat face dry prior to use. Massage a bit honey into the skin; leave it on for 10 seconds (for a quick face wash) to 10 minutes (for a deeper hydrating mask). (Pro tip: we like to leave it on as we brush our teeth nightly, so around 2-3 minutes). Rinse with warm water; follow with a toner, mist, and oil-based moisturizer.
For an acne-fighting sucker punch, use as a mask after the Green Monstah to deliver moisture and balance skin pH.
Raw organic orange blossom honey, organic coconut sugar, Citrus aurantium (neroli) oil, organic Citrus reticulata (red mandarin) oil. ****About the Brand: We make plant-based, organic skincare products in small batches in Oakland, California. We source medicinal herbs directly from farms (some we even grow ourselves). We are minimalists who avoid clutter on our shelves and in our ingredients. We’re also anti-hype: we take a scientific, evidence-based approach to formulation, using minimally processed natural ingredients that deliver maximum results.
Chuck and Sam began as our wedding website. On the big day, we gave handmade lotion as thank you to our guests. When people kept asking us for more, the idea for Chuck & Sam was born.
Sam is a writer and herbalist with a background in environmental science and sustainability; her husband Chuck, a designer and former chef, is her only guinea pig (animal testing = gross). We’re up front about what goes into our products because we respect our customers and the earth. We want skincare to become second nature, with products so simple and effective that they become staples in everyone’s daily routines. High-quality ingredients, simply prepared, no added clutter or wasted time.
