coming full circle when I think about – homestead body was already in development when i was a little girl. one day i opened my grandmother’s fridge and saw something that i had never noticed before - pure cocoa butter in a push-up white tin with blue letters on it.
curiously, the first time i saw it – i picked it up, took off the little tin lid and was taken by the beautiful smell of the butter – the smell enveloped my space and until that point – i had never smelled anything like it. i asked my grandmother what it was for – she replied that “it was to help burns and scars heal”. of course, i immediately had to start rubbing the butter on my forearms to test it out. the butter softened on my skin as i glided it up and down my arms, my legs – even all over my face. as you may guess – that stick of cocoa butter didn’t last long – i knew it was something special.
we are a husband and wife team who founded homestead body on the principle of going back to the basics for clean body care. we are committed to using only all organic, plant-based, vegan and cruelty-free ingredients that anyone can feel good about putting on their skin, and....we wanted to make products that weren't complicated - using ingredients that you understood and were perhaps familiar.
