Skincare is an essential part of self-care- there are those like myself who have a very specially crafted skincare routine with a large number of products and there are those that indulge in a very minimalistic routine with a small range of essentials. No matter your skin care needs, there are a few things that you should never skip out on- face wash moisturizer, and face oil. To all my fellow oily-skinned women out there, YES, even we need to use face oil to have healthy skin!
Are you on the search for all-natural vegan skin care brand that has products that will make you look and feel good? Look no further. BUTTERelixir has a small yet beautifully formulated catalog of products including face and body oil, ultra-hydrating lip balm, and their fan-favorite BUTTERelixir face oil that contains only 4 humble ingredients (apricot oil, organic virgin oil, argan oil, and wild rose essential oil).
Our Raise Vegan team had the chance to meet with Lorenza Pintar, the founder and ultimate lady boss behind BUTTERelixir. BUTTERelixir is a revolutionary skincare brand hailing from NYC. Using exclusively vegan and naturally derived ingredients in their products, their mission of “providing unisex skin care products that are a sophisticated gift for all the senses” rings true.

Here are the excerpts from the interview:
We here at the magazine enjoyed spending some time in the Press section on your website. There is a really delicious buzz about BUTTERelixir! What is your team’s perception of the response around the globe to your product?
Lorenza: Thank you for taking the time to go through our website. Everyone has different needs and preferences. We hope that BUTTERelixir is simply perceived for what it is: an uncomplicated line of natural clean skincare that feels good to experience because of the high quality of the ingredients and its commitment to integrity and sustainable business practices. In all our operations we aim to do what is right, what is best and what is fair while delivering value. We are very grateful to everyone supporting our practice.
BUTTERelixir was born in NYC in 2015. Do you think there was energy specific to NYC and a synergy there that led to the birth of BUTTERelixir?
Lorenza: There was no real plan. My personal experience and interest in Ayurveda combined with Yoga practice naturally led to creating something I could use for myself and share with friends.
I grew up living and appreciating simplicity. Scents that are comforting to me (lavender and rose, for example, are aromas that instantly bring me back to my grandmother’s memory) but also universally recognized as positive became an immediate tool to connect through sensory experience and share to a larger circle. All products were born in my own kitchen! It interests me how the senses are a universal language that brings people together. I could never stand behind anything that doesn’t make sense to me. Like the food I grew up eating, BUTTERelixir is grounded in quality and simplicity. It has to be authentic or I am not interested.
Can your team share more about the concept of Radical Luxury as expressed by BUTTERelixir?
Lorenza: Radical Luxury is simply intended as working with nature with respect and gratitude and operating responsibly at all times. In other words Yoga, the luxury of integration that comes with freedom.
What is your team’s perception of the growth of interest and demand for vegan and cruelty-free beauty and body products?
Lorenza: We feel good about it! It spreads peace and responsibility and we like that.
Does your team perceive a rising interest for luxury, vegan body care in NYC specifically?
Lorenza: New Yorkers are demanding but also very hard workers. We keep the bar at its highest for ourselves first. We are very lucky to have some of the best and most integral Yoga teachers in the world (I am pretty sure mine is: Eddie Stern). A strong community that reverberates a message of peace and health for all is the ultimate dynamic creation of Beauty. We are willing to do the work for it.
Do you have any plans for other products on the horizon?
Lorenza: We just launched SADHU, a collaboration with a very special yoga and meditation teacher: Jocelyne Stern. SADHU is a unique and powerful relief oil and tonic, to me is mainly a work of art to be experienced.
Our products will tell everything there is to be said according to one’s personal level of receptiveness about feeling good, beautiful and clean.
