Dr. Kristina Ivy—founder of Rica Bath & Body—is a longtime clinical psychologist and holistic doctor ‘by day’. Kristina founded Rica—named for the Spanish word for ‘rich and sumptuous’—as a tool to promote bath & beauty rituals to calm the mind and promote self-care. Kristina took a cue from her family—and based her product formulas on her great grandmothers’ time honored skincare recipes. She pours a lot of love and tradition into every one of her products—and makes them all in Brooklyn, New York. Rica’s whipped body butters and bath teas are two of our most popular products in store, and are absolutely perfect for unwinding, de-stressing, and loving your skin.
One of our most popular products in store, this whipped, light-as-air shea butter is incredibly nourishing and great for dry skin. For body, feet, hair and nails, its a quick absorbing butter cream with coconut, avocado and passionfruit oils that leave skin and hair nourished, protected and oh-so soft. Delicately scented with essential oils of lemon and sweet orange.
