Hello, our names are Johnny & Alissa Dimov. We live in Perth, Western Australia where we love the sunshine and open spaces. We are a dedicated Christian family, living our lives according to God’s Word, by His grace. Our two young children certainly keep us occupied, while filling our days with love and joy. They both teach us so much continuously, and we feel very blessed to be their parents.
We are passionate about natural health which includes skin care. For us, this means realising that health and wellness isn’t found in a pill, but in the thousand choices, both big and small, that we are faced with each and every day. We try to make those choices, whether it be for our children, for ourselves, or our home, by determining God’s principals for a natural and holistic lifestyle.
One of the ways we do this is by avoiding toxic synthetic chemicals through using alternatives provided by nature. We have seen firsthand the devastating effects of harmful chemicals, and attempt to reduce the toxic burden for our family wherever we can.
We founded Earthen Vessel Care in 2013 to fill the breach in natural and organic skin care products that were locally made. The name Earthen Vessel Care comes from 2 Corinthians 4:7, and reflects the fact that we have a responsibility to care for our natural body, which in no way subtracts from the glory of God and His power to sustain and heal us.
"But we have this treasure in
that the excellency of the power
may be of God, and not of us"
2 Corinthians 4:7
Solid Butter Bars
We are excited to introduce our luxurious range of Solid Butter Bars. We have carefully selected each ingredient to ensure that it has profound nourishing and moisturising effect, without unnecessary fillers that could potentially dry the skin. Our ingredients are as close to nature as possible, and contain no synthetic substances, parabens, sls or palm oil.
We have combined several natural ingredients such as shea butter, beeswax and coconut oil, along with a blend of therapeutic and essential oils to formulate a solid bar of butter which melts into your skin with your body heat. The satin-soft result is our Solid Butter Bar which has lasting moisturising qualities.
Natural Skin Care
What we put on our skin is just as important as what we put in our bodies. Like our gut and intestines, our skin has its own microbiome consisting of trillions of microorganisms. Our skin acts as a barrier, protecting us from harmful toxins, chemicals and pollutants which we come in contact with or in the air around us. When our skin barrier is compromised, small micro-openings develop in the skin and allow toxins and chemicals to permeate into the bloodstream and cells.
Our skin barrier can be compromised and broken down through environmental factors, including the use of products such as hand sanitizers which dry out the skin. The phospholipid membrane which protects the cells are predominately made of fat. This means that the nourishing oils in our Solid Butter Bar are not only readily absorbed by the skin, but also assist to strengthen and protect the natural skin barrier.
Aromatic Essential Oils
Using the power of essential oils, our Solid Butter Bars also take on aromatheraputic qualities. Because essential oils are volatile orgainic compounds that are also made of fat, they are best used diluted in a carrier oil to maximise absorbancy.
Essential oils have a very light chemical weight, allowing them to readily absorb through our skin, and into our cells and blood stream, but it also means that they evaporate very quickly. Our Solid Butter Bars provide the benefits of aromatherapy in a convenient package that can be used at any time.
We believe that essential oils are a natural product that have been given by God for our benefit. Our body can readily absorb and metabolise them without any harmful side effects.
As the butter melts into your skin, the oils quickly absorb along with the beeswax and shea butter, leaving your skin feeling soft and moisturised. You will just love the aroma and feel as the "Butter" absorbs into your skin.
We hope you enjoy your experience!
