This review speaks to the quality of this product. Allow me to give you a bit of background. Back in 2010, I attended an expo where I met the lovely woman (and her mother) behind the Adiva Naturals product line. Here we are in the third quarter of 2012 and I have just finished using the product - on purpose!
What attracted me to the line originally was the booth. I was enticed by the earth tones and that fragrance. Whoa! You turn the corner and it just grabbed you! Her earth-tone product labels include instructions, ingredients and applicable imagery. With this particular product, I would have preferred a different lid. I found that it was a bit challenging to remove the product from the container- especially after it settled a bit.
Normally, the consistency is nice and creamy. It is similar to that of a thick oil mixed with a little bit of grease. Over time however, some of the ingredients separate and you can actually see the pellets used to make the product. If the product gets too cool, it will solidify a bit. What I have come to learn is that many product lines add unnatural thickeners and other components to maintain consistency. I would rather have a product that changes state and works regardless of state. It went from cream to oil, to solid and back and still worked the same! Love it!
