Soul II Skin
When A Tribe Called Quest infected the hip-hop culture decades ago with the timeless classic “Bonita Applebum,” who knew that the phrase “you gotta put me on” would become the mantra of a fresh new collection of balms and butters? Bonita Applebalm, created from a love of peace, happiness and natural beauty, invites you to soothe your smackers and skin with offerings like Bees & Things & Flowers and S’i Butter composed of an amalgam of organic materials like cocoa butter, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, beeswax and raw shea butter. Pick the decorative tin that speaks directly to your personal groove theory and rock on ‘til the break of dawn (bonitaapplebalm.com).
