Hi there! Adele here.
Thanks for visiting the home of my lotion love child, Essentiel Moisture.

I’m a body parts model – you may have seen my hands in Revlon ads, my lips in Deborah Lippmann campaigns, or my legs in Louboutin heels. I’m often asked how I keep my skin in shape for macro close-up photography. My motto has remained the same throughout a 20-year career. One word: MOISTURIZER.

Every part of me is magnified under the lens, so even my nails need to be well nourished. Ever notice how dry nails become brittle and break? Early on, I realized I needed something to keep my skin healthy and camera-ready from head to toe. I wanted a lotion with a lovely relationship to light so I got the glow, yet didn’t feel greasy or look shiny.

I experimented with many products and soon became overwhelmed by the massive selection of moisturizers on the market that were all parts-specific.

I began asking myself: ‘How can I get a premium product that serves many purposes and truly performs into one bottle?’

Eventually I took matters into my own hands and started creating lotion-potions in my kitchen, using ingredients I grew up with while raised on an organic farm in Northern California. Then teamed up with a top formulator and set out to spread the lotion love!

Simplifying Skincare

If you’re tired of countless steps and confusing promises to ‘perfect skin,’ Essentiel Moisture is a simple solution to having high-quality skincare at an affordable cost in ONE beautiful bottle. My belief is that you don’t need a bazillion bottles in your bathroom – you simply need a few potent products that work. Personally, I’ve gotten the best results using minimal skincare of maximum quality. When you’re using a product that delivers the essential nutrients skin needs to stay healthy and hydrated, it doesn’t matter if it goes on your nose or your toes.

What differentiates a fine face cream from a typical body lotion are quality of ingredients. So I set out to a create a luxurious ‘face cream’ affordable enough to use on the entire body.

Why Essential Oils Are Essentiel

Essential Oils are concentrated plant extracts that have been used for thousands of years to tone, balance, relax, cleanse and invigorate the skin. Cleopatra’s ancient beauty secret is said to have been essential oils. The health benefits are potent – i.e. the antioxidants in one ounce of clove oil is equivalent to that of 450 pounds of carrots! Essentiel Moisture contains my favorite blend of oils for skin.

GERANIUM: brings out the glow that makes skin look luminous again and is ideal for stressed skin. Improves elasticity and calms the skin.

FRANKINCENSE: soothes skin and contains natural antibacterial properties that help heal acne, infection, and age spots.

HELICHRYSUM: helps accelerate healing and regeneration of healthy cells. Strengthens capillary walls that help prevent broken blood vessels.

LAVENDER: potent antiseptic and soothing properties that restore balance and calm irritated skin. Helps improve acne, psoriasis, wounds, sunburn and other skin conditions.

Beauty and Health Go Hand In Hand

Maintaining gorgeous skin is an inside/outside job. Superior skincare, as well as a balanced diet, are the foundation for beautiful skin. Skin is the largest organ and up to 60 percent of products used are absorbed into the bloodstream. The harmful effects of toxic chemicals, preservatives, additives, colorings and artificial fragrances are well documented, and many have been exposed as potentially carcinogenic. Whatever goes ON the body goes IN the body.

Gorgeous Skin at Any Age

Healthy skin is beautiful skin. I’m an old bird in the beauty biz, yet I’ve doubled for models who could be my daughter. Well-nourished skin looks luminous at any age. Feed your skin the vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, oils and other essential nutrients it needs. Whether you’re 15 or 50, your skin will thank you for incorporating Essentiel Moisture. – a healthy habit that takes a minute a day, yet will keep your skin healthy for years to come!

MSM - A 'Magic' Ingredient

MSM, methylsulfonylmethane, is a food-source odorless sulfur compound that’s been called a ‘beauty mineral’. Sulfur is the third most abundant mineral in the body, most concentrated in skin, nails, and hair. Ancient Romans soaked in sulfur baths and some say it was the original ‘fountain of youth’. MSM helps bind keratin proteins and is essential for the body to produce collagen. I like to call MSM a miracle mineral.
