Our Body Icing is handcrafted, vegan, all-natural, and cruelty-free. Our owner has been working on this icing for the past 2 years and it has finally met her expectations. The excitement has been unreal and so has the response of this one of a kind product.

So we will take you on a journey of the main ingredients and what their benefits are for the skin.
