The Balanced Buddha is made with all natural, RAW, kosher, cruelty free, certified organic, vegan ingredients along side CPTG (certified pure therapeutic grade) essential oils. Products are made in house and prepared in small batches to insure high quality and potency. The recipes are a blend of plants, leaves, wood, bark, roots, seeds, nuts and peels containing the minerals, vitamins, fats and nutrients the cell structure requires for healthy development. 


First you need to know the basic structure and function of the skin. Below i will go in to detail about the layers of the skin, absorption and benefits of using the balanced Buddha custom skin care. 

First things first! The skin is coated in a layer called "The acid mantle layer". This is a very fine, slightly acidic film on the surface of human skin acting as a barrier to bacteria, viruses and other potential contaminants that might penetrate the skin. 

⭐️Sebum is secreted by the sebaceous gland and when mixed with sweat becomes the acid mantle. ⭐️The pH of the skin is between 4.5 & 6.2, slightly acidic.

⭐️ blood is slightly alkaline

Pathogenic bacteria that become adapted to the pH of the skin and are able to reach internal tissues will encounter an environment to which they are less well adapted. This combination of acidic exterior and alkaline interior is one of the body's non-specific host defences against bacterial pathogens. 

By removing or compromising the acid mantle layer threw over washing, using harsh products, exposure to chemicals Ect. you are exposing the skin and removing its defence system as well as providing a gateway for pathogenic bacteria (bacteria that cause Disease!) to get in to the body. 


Living in the acid mantle layer are skin microbiome. A healthy skin microbiome protects against infection in much the same way a good gut microbiome does, by crowding out overgrowth of pathogenic organisms.

microbiome also ✔️aids in wound healing, ✔️limits exposure to allergens and ✔️UV radiation, ✔️minimizes oxidative damage, and ✔️keeps the skin plump and moist.

⭐️An imbalanced microbiome is associated with many diseases including ✔️psoriasis, ✔️allergies, ✔️eczema, ✔️contact dermatitis, ✔️acne, ✔️poor wound healing, ✔️skin ulcers, ✔️dandruff, ✔️yeast and ✔️fungal infections, ✔️rosacea, and ✔️accelerated skin aging.

Did you know that your skin microbiome works closely with your gut microbiome communicating as a network to maintain homeostasis threw the entire body, meaning when one is off it can effect the other !

Now lets get in to the layers of the skin and there function. The epidermis is the outermost of the three layers that make up the skin, the inner layers - dermis and hypo-dermis.

The epidermis layer is composed of multiple layers of flattened cells that overlie the dermis. The epidermis itself has no 💉 blood supply and is nourished almost exclusively by diffused oxygen from the surrounding air. Blood capillaries are found beneath the epidermis in the dermis, the capillaries connect to veins and arteries; the transport system of the body - for waste and nutrients. Keratinocytes make up 90% of the cells of the epidermis. There primary function is the formation of a barrier against

⭐️ environmental damage (make-up, skin care products, chemical exposure ect.) 

⭐️ pathogenic bacteria 

⭐️ fungi 

⭐️ parasites

⭐️ viruses 

⭐️ heat 

⭐️ UV radiation and

⭐️ water loss

⭐️ epidermis provides a barrier to infection from environmental pathogens and

⭐️ regulates the amount of water released from the body into the atmosphere.  

Once a disturbance becomes apparent the keratinocytes can react by producing chemokine which signal cells to aid in balancing the environment. This can cause a variety of inflammatory and skin responses depending on the disturbance and severity. When we use skin care ingredients that alter the pH level of the skin, and or remove the acid mantle layer we are then altering the epidermal layer and contributing to the natural defence response of the skin. Using products that the cells recognize and thrive on will improve the appearance of the body’s skin and strengthen your first response against infection and disease as well as strengthen its barrier. 

The skin and what you put on it gets absorbed first ☝️ by the epidermis. Then one of ✌️ things will happen

 1. If the skin rejects what your putting on it you may see an immediate response through activation of the keratinocytes defence mechanism.

2. The product and its ingredients get absorbed in to the layers of the skin. Depending on the size of the molecule will dictate the level of absorption an ingredient has, if it is a small molecule it will get absorbed in to the dermis and in to the capillaries then in to the blood stream, if the molecule is bigger it will linger in the epidermal layer.

The Balanced Buddha custom skin care  +  The cell 

The balanced buddha is made of all natural ingredients, from the earth such as carrier oils - derived from seeds, kernels, nuts and essential oils derived from flowers, wood, bark, roots, seeds or peels.

These ingredients are composed of oils, minerals, vitamins, fats and other nutrients the body creates to maintain homeostasis and proper function of the body systems.

The skin is composed of oil, sweat and protein. When we use a carrier oil on the skin the response is positive, like attracts like - The carrier oil does just as its name suggests carries oils and because our skin is made of oil it recognizes it welcoming it deep in to the hypo-dermis and dermis where the oil glands and capillaries are located. The capillaries take the nutrients in the ingredient in to the blood stream, the blood stream brings that to every part of your body.

The carrier oil is enhanced with essential oils to treat presenting condition. The balances buddha is a custom skin care line that utilizes the function of a specific essential oil to enhance the function of the skin and balance the body systems.

How we choose the appropriate blend of ingredients is by looking for any presenting conditions. This can show up in a physical, emotional or energetic manor and reside with in the body, on the body or in the auric body.

Here at BALANCE at the spa Yoga + Retreat centre we will discuss in length with you to make sure we are providing the ingredients that will bring your body in to homeostasis. When the body is in a balanced space it will run in perfect efficiency, providing you a long life of vitality and pure bliss.
