Mokosh Skincare Certified Organic Fair Trade :: Containing pure, ethically sourced ingredients that are strictly free of potentially harmful additives and unsustainable ingredients found in almost all skin care products.
Formulated differently from virtually all other skin care - they contain no water, whereas mainstream skin care contains up to 85% water. The absence of water means Mokosh products require no preservatives, since microorganisms are unable to grow in a water-free environment. Further, they require none of the other synthetic compounds required when water is present - emulsifiers, stablisers and thickeners. Mokosh products are pure plant ingredients - unrefined, and unchanged from their natural form.
Because they contain no water, Mokosh moisturisers are up to 5 times the concentration of standard skin care. This means you need use only one-fifth the amount you would normally use.
Key ingredients are Fair Trade - shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, coconut flour, marula oil and coffee. We do not add preservatives of any description - not even those approved for use in certified organic cosmetics, because we are not satisfied with their safety. Nor do we use artificial colours or fragrances, or synthetic ingredients- all our ingredients are used in their natural form. We don't use palm oil in our soaps and other products for environmental reasons. It seems that Mokosh is one of the few skin care brands that is genuinely free of palm oil derivatives.
