Calendula and St John’s Wort support the skin's natural repair processes. Yerba Mansa, a lesser known herb to many, is native plant to CA. The leaves of Yerba Mansa promote the healthy proliferation of cells. Comfrey is the botanical cheerleader doing impressive flips in the air in support of skin repair.

About Fat and the Moon
Fat and the Moon, at its core, is about healing. Self-care is fundamental to showing up fully to care for others, and our world.
Healing is reflected in the way we choose to do business, in intentional relationship with people and plants. We work with plants that are abundant, ethically harvested and organically cultivated and combine them in formulations that are non-toxic. Our commitment is to use reusable, recyclable containers, whenever possible and to minimize superfluous packaging.
Healing is reflected in our wholehearted support of Self Care and Self Love which stands in opposition to the pervasive message that something is inherently wrong with us, and that we need a product to fix it. We see the beauty in all bodies, all backgrounds, all ethnicities, all races and all genders. Our potions are mediums of empowerment through self care.
Healing is in the intimate connection we have with our products; each one is handmade and hand shipped, under one roof. The products we make are collaborations with tried and true medicinal plants that have been effective for generations.
