Himalayan Geranium Essential Oil, Wildcrafted: A beautiful and multifaceted essential oil, Geranium has protecting and balancing properties made more potent by the fact that it is grown at an extremely high altitude. It is a humectant for drawing moisture to the skin, firms and tones, promotes vitality, balances sebum (oil) production, rejuvenates, supports the skin’s own production of collagen, reduces puffiness and strengthens the skin. Its scent is balancing, calming, and uplifting.
Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil Blend: This unique, highly antioxidant blend of pomegranate oils contains special fatty acids which have significant natural restorative and protective properties, valuable anti-aging cosmeceutical polyphenols and gamma-tocopherol, a rare and potent form of vitamin E. It has the ability to improve elasticity in the skin, firm and tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, prevent visible signs of aging, support the restoration of sun-damaged skin and reduce irritation and puffiness. It does these things by supporting the skin’s own production of collagen, moisturizing and nourishing the skin while promoting rejuvenation.
Pomegranate Seed Oil: Packed with polyphenols - antioxidant warriors that combat destructive oxidation of the cells. These antioxidants restore and repair tissue on a cellular level, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and sun damage. Thanks to powerful anti-inflammatory properties, fatty acids work hard to reduce puffiness, soothe and ease stress (yes, your skin gets stressed, too). Ever generous in its benefits, Pomegranate Seed Oil also supports collagen production, meaning it helps firm and even out skin tone to create that youthful glow.
Organic Tamanu Oil: Cherished as a sacred gift by the Tahitian natives, Tamanu is a beautiful restorative oil with a multitude of beneficial applications. Tamanu assists with overall skin vitality, moisture retention and wrinkle reduction due to its high content of Omega 6 & 9 essential fatty acids. The oil is best known for its wide-spectrum first-aid benefits and is commonly used for burns, sunburn, cuts, rashes, chapped and dry skin, acne, eczema, and to reduce the appearance of scar tissue.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Do Pangea products contains GMO ingredients?
No. Pangea products are made using Non-GMO ingredients.
Why is Lavender Alcohol in Pangea Organics Products?
Pangea Organics Lavender Alcohol (SDA 38 B Organic Lavender) is a natural and stable preservative, suspension agent, absorption aid, carrier for aroma, and a skin toner/astringent. Please do not confuse Pangea's Organic Non-GMO Corn Grain Alcohol with the lesser-quality, drying forms of alcohol, such as isopropyl which is wood grain alcohol denatured with petroleum. Isopropyl is a form that is well-known to be both toxic and drying.
The safety concerns associated with alcohol commonly have to do with its function as a carrier and absorption aid and with whatever the alcohol may be denatured with. Alcohol will increase the penetration into the skin of whatever else may happen to be in the formula alongside it. Since Pangea Organics uses only beneficial ingredients that are biocompatible and generally recognized as safe, this penetration enhancement becomes a non-issue.
Denaturing alcohol is a legal necessity, as it deems the alcohol un-drinkable. Pangea Organics denatures their organic alcohol with steam-distilled organic lavender essential oil. Commonly, alcohol is denatured with petroleum-based agents, which of course increases potential toxicity. Pangea Organics stands behind their Organic Lavender Alcohol as non-drying and beneficial, as it increases the efficacy of their individual ingredients by driving these nutrients deeper into the intercellular cement of the skin.
Are Pangea products hypoallergenic?
All ingredients are generally safe for all skin types, yet some people may still have individual allergies to certain plant botanicals. (The same holds true for any cosmetic or food ingredient). Those with extremely sensitive skin should conduct a patch test prior to use. Pangea Organics offers an open disclosure policy regarding ingredients, so if there is any particular botanical you seek to avoid, you will see it clearly listed in both the Latin and common English names on the ingredient panel.
Are Pangea products gluten-free?
Yes. All products are gluten-free, with the exception of the Oatmeal Bergamot Bar Soap; due to possible gluten contamination of the oats from nearby wheat fields. This is called “blow-by contamination” for true celiacs. Panges's Vitamin E is sourced from either soy or sunflower, rather than wheat germ.
Are Pangea products vegan and cruelty-free?
Pangea Organics products are vegan with the exception of the following:
- Australian Wild Plum & Willow Facial Cleanser (contains honey)
- Turkish Rose & White Tea Eye Cream (contains beeswax)
- All Lip Balms (contain beeswax)
- All Body Lotions (contain beeswax)
Are Pangea products certified organic?
Pangea Organics has always used certified organic ingredients in their products. Through their commitment to organic purity, Panges Organics ia now working to achieve organic certification for their entire product line. Right now Pangea Organics has12 SKUs Certified Organic by the USDA; they are: bar soaps (3), lip balms (3), body oils (3) and facial toners (3).
Why are glyceryl stearate, saccharide isomerate and sucrose stearate in Pangea's prodycts? Are they natural?
Because an ingredient sounds of unnatural origin does not necessarily mean it is. Take glycerol and sucrose stearate for example; these are emulsifiers that Pangea Organics uses to assure that their formulations stay together at the molecular level. Emulsifiers keep oils and water blended in an emulsion (in products like lotions). Without emulsifiers, oil and water would separate into layers. Emulsifiers surround oil particles, allowing them to remain evenly distributed throughout the water. They can also act as thickening agents giving cosmetics their distinctive feel and form.

Deeply Penetrating / Weightless: Pangea Organics formulates products to penetrate the intercellular matrix. Pangea Organics' products are intended to feed the skin, rather than simply sit on the surface. Your customers can feel good about that because our skin is truly the largest organ, absorbing approximately 80% of what we put on it. Pangea Organics says that if you wouldn’t think of eating a particular ingredient, why would you put it on your skin?
All Natural Preservative System: Pangea Organics incorporates all natural preservatives such as antioxidant rich, performance ingredients including: SDA 38 B Organic Lavender Alcohol (which also increases efficacy), Vitamin E, and Rosemary Essential Oil instead of using petrochemicals and parabens.
Environmentally Responsible Packaging: Pangea Organics always selects packaging that benefits their products and supports a more sustainable environment. Never one to shy away from the more expensive choice, from plantable outer cartons to UVB protecting glass.

Antioxidant-Rich Formulas For Anti-Aging Results
With the ancient wisdom of Mother Nature as their guide, Pangea Organics sources organic antioxidants for anti-aging and restorative benefits. The high antioxidant content in Pangea Organics' products helps defend the skin against free-radicals (a primary cause of the physical signs of aging), supports collagen retention, helps stimulate micro-circulation, gently purifies, brightens skin tone and helps prevent discoloration and moisture-loss.
Seriously Pure, Biocompatible Hydration
Pangea Organics formulates with bioavailable hydration (easy for the body to absorb and assimilate) and skin restoration in mind. Pangea Organics designs long-lasting hydration formulas to restore suppleness and deliver optimal moisture levels for each skin type. Pangea Organics' unique combination of humectants, emollients and protein rejuvenating agents immediately relieves dehydrated skin, prevents further moisture loss and protect from environmental damage.
A few noteworthy hydrators found in nature:
- Essential Fatty Acids
Pangea Organics uses cold-pressed, food-grade oils that are rich in fatty acids Omega-3, 6 and 9 and offer a multitude of skin-beneficial nutrients. Fatty acids help to plump the skin and impart substantial hydration by allowing heightened moisture retention to smooth and soften, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Hylauronic Acid
A naturally-occurring substance found in the skin that has phenomenal water-binding capabilities. The amount of hylauronic acid produced by the body decreases with age, rendering topical supplementation beneficial to all skin types for improving visual radiance. Appropriate for all skin types to use daily, hylauronic acid delivers biocompatible, oil-free hydration that protects and restores suppleness.
- Olive Squalane
A weightless, non-clogging emollient that is extremely biocompatible with the skin. Squalane firms and softens while protecting and boosting the skin’s ability to recover from damage.
- Saccride Isomerate
A complex carbohydrate or sugar chain that simulates the carbohydrate fraction naturally occurring in the skin. It is a highly effective, plant derived “water magnet” that regulates and retains moisture in the skin; providing superior, long-lasting moisture binding properties even under low humidity conditions.
Pure Plant Botanicals For Aroma and Skin Benefit
Always Beneficial, Never Artificial; Pangea Organics aroma profiles are blended using the highest quality supercritically extracted (CO2) and steam distilled essential oils and extracts, from the best sources around the world. The plant botanicals in Pangea's formulations not only provide luxurious aroma but also impart their skin-type-specific benefits to soothe, purify, hydrate, nourish, calm, protect and restore your precious skin.
No Fillers, So Every Ingredients is Both Functional and Beneficial
Pangea Organics believes that each bottle and tube should contain as much performance-focused antioxidant-rich nourishment as they can squeeze in. Eliminating fillers slows the speed of consumption; thus increasing value and reducing the need to recycle or throw away profuse amounts of packaging. Good for your skin, good for the planet!

Herbs transform the earth’s nutrients into a form that our bodies can utilize. Pangea Organics then utilizes these whole, living plant essences in their products so you can benefit from their vitamins, minerals and essential oils in the purest way possible.
