FAT AND THE MOON || BEAM SHIMMER
In the spirit of aligning with that place in all of us that wants to shine, Fat and the Moon presents ‘Beam’, taking the notion of ‘highlighter’ literally and figuratively.
The light and silky, mineral based glimmer can be applied any place you want to glow. The shimmer of Beam is magnified with the addition of Madrone spirit medicine, a tree native to the Pacific Northwest that helps us stay connected to ourselves despite whatever influential winds might be blowing. Beam is the magic love child of plant medicine and a desire to shake what your mama gave you. Fat and the Moon takes the root word of ‘cosmetics’, ‘kosmos’, seriously. Kosmos meaning order, to arrange and ornament. Our cosmetics aim to adorn, rather than cover, the unique arrangement of each personal galaxy.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
