What is it?
A beautiful, moisturising body cream that will protect you and your family from biting bugs and insects such as mosquitos, midgees, and sandflies without being a repellent.
How does it work?
We’ve harnessed natural plant and flower extracts (think sweet Vanilla and fresh Spearmint) in this formula, and when applied to your skin it helps mask your scent. This tricks insects into sensing that you’re a flower instead of their next meal ticket. No chemicals are spritzed, no bugs are harmed, and you’ll become bite-proof. It’s a win-win! Think of this product as a veil, and definitely not a repellent because that would mean our formula contains harmful pesticide ingredients. Our cream is packed with nothing but lush plant oils, butters, waxes, and essential oils that will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
Why you’ll love it:
You care about the products and ingredients that you apply to the skin on your face, and we think the same goes for your body and your approach to insect protection. This nourishing moisturiser will mean you can ditch the toxic sprays and roll-ons, we’ve got one word for those guys: nasty. Our cream is for the conscious consumer, who considers their environment and cares about the chemicals we leave behind us at the end of the day.
Usage and directions:
Apply as the last step in your routine (after SPF), and as you would your moisturiser. Ensure you cover all exposed skin, and for best results reapply every 2 hours (minimum). Vanilla Mozi has been designed for sensitive skin and all ages. It is safe for the whole family, including breastfeeding mothers and babies. We recommend that you do a patch test prior to use.
It’s the perfect secret weapon for mothers during mozi season and campers will fall in love with this cream. If you’re a ‘mozi magnet’ then we recommend this as your new daily moisturiser. It can also be applied before bed to ensure you’re protected overnight.
What is in Vanilla Mozi Bite-Proof Body Cream and why?
WATER: Purified aqua.
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL: A wonder oil! Known as a skin softener with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, who wouldn’t want this beautiful organic oil on their skin! Another super power is its ability to keep your skin hydrated.
ORGANIC SHEA BUTTER: A rich and luscious butter that is super moisturing and conditioning for the skin. Extra lovely because it is organic.
GLYCERYL STEARATE SE: NO Palm Derivatives and Vegan, tick. This ingredient acts as an emulsifier which means it blends oils and water together.
BEHENYL ALCOHOL: Made from flowers like jasmine, hyacinth, neroli, rose and ylang ylang, this ingredient acts as a beautiful natural preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria and mould. Why wouldn’t we use flowers as one of our preservatives at Vanilla Mozi.
GLYCERYL STEARATE CITRATE: Plant based and Palm Oil free. This emollient protects and moisturises the skin. More softness and smoothness for you.
ORGANIC GLYCERIN: Vegan. Glycerin is used in many skin care products for its skin conditioning and protection qualities. Its role as a humectant prevents the loss of moisture from the product, locking in moisture for your skin.
VANILLA MOZI PROPRIETARY BLEND: Since 2006, Vanilla Mozi has used an exquisite blend of vanilla ingredients and pure spearmint essential oil to create not only our beautiful signature scent but the essence of Vanilla Mozi Body Cream. In 2021 we have created a Vanilla Mozi Proprietary Blend which is a combination of these natural, botanical ingredients that we can call our own.
The exoticness and luxury of the second most expensive spice in the world- Vanilla, marries perfectly with the freshness and coolness of spearmint. The secret ingredient in our recipe that keeps you and your family bite-proof, naturally.
HYDROXYPROPYL STARCH PHOSPAHTE: Vegan. A modified sugar that puts the “body” in our body cream. This natural ingredient makes Vanilla Mozi Body Cream feel conditioning and soft on the skin, not greasy.
ORGANIC OLIVE FRUIT OIL: This amazing oil is an excellent moisturiser. It is packed full of natural, skin friendly vitamins that your skin will rejoice over.
Olive Oil is also a champion ingredient for locking in moisture therefore keeping your skin hydrated.
ORGANIC AVOCADO OIL: This incredible ingredient is a “must have” in our product. Packed with so many benefits, Avocado Oil has natural anti -inflammatory properties, making it a winner for skin problems. It also helps the skin hold its hydration and minimises damage from free-radicals.
CASTOR SEED OIL: This magic oil has been around for a long time, but has only recently claimed its amazing benefits for the skin. Hydration and soothing are its main roles.
LEVULINIC, BENZOIC AND SORBIC ACID: These 3 ingredients together provide an innovative and organic preservative. A natural broad-spectrum preservative system that prevents against both bacteria and fungi growth. Here at Vanilla Mozi, we persisted with finding a super effective, natural preservative. And we found it!
XANTHAN GUM: Another ingredient that gives “body” to our body cream. It assists in holding the Vanilla Mozi scent on your skin for longer, therefore offering you “bite-proof” protection for longer.
VITAMIN E: An amazing oil with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties just to name a couple. We love Vitamin E for overall skin health.
SODIUM PHYTATE: An all-natural chelating agent that acts to stabilise Vanilla Mozi Body Cream therefore offering you a longer shelf life.
SODIUM HYDROXIDE: The smallest amount of this ingredient is used to hold the PH balance in Vanilla Mozi Body Cream at the perfect level.
