About Skin Free Non-Toxic Skincare
All products distributed by Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio are designed and formulated by owner and practicing pharmacist, Julie Hilton, who has over 30 years experience in compounding and natural skin care. I started the Studio in 2000 when my husband and I moved to the Blue Ridge of Virginia. Our friends were calling us gypsies so the name evolved naturally.
Working in a typical retail pharmacy setting, I was constantly frustrated when asked to recommend products for patients with difficult skin problems, especially those with fragrance allergies. I recognized a void in the market and knew that I could offer effective and affordable products to fill it. Atopic dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis are life-long conditions and need to be addressed for the long term. Patients with diabetes or renal disease, pregnant women, babies, the elderly, and patients treated with radiation therapy can all benefit from quality natural products. Even people who just have dry, sensitive skin can appreciate wholesome natural skincare products.
Since I personally suffer from chronic allergies and eczema, I understand that it is very important for people with these conditions to maintain the integrity of their skin and reduce their exposure to antigens to help prevent acute outbreaks. These diseases can be quite debilitating and cause increase depression, work loss, and pain.”
Naturally occurring vegetable oils and butters contain indigenous nutrients, antioxidants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), and antibacterial agents that petroleum-based oils just don’t have. Natural oils absorb into the skin and do not feel greasy. They also come from replenishable sources, which is a great environmental concern.
Skin Free products are recommended for:
- Extreme dry skin
- Skin or fragrance allergies
- Pregnant mothers
- The elderly
- Renal patients
- After radiation or chemotherapy
For my review, I was sent three products from Skin Free. The first product I reviewed was the Super Moisture Butter Creme. This is made with 100% natural ingredients. I feel like this was made just for me, even though I know sooo many people get great use out of it! It is for people with delicate, sensitive or very dry skin. Because I tan indoors a lot, I need to replenish moisture back into my skin. Super Moisture Butter Creme did just that. It revived my skin and made it soft and silky. There are no added fragrances, no colorants, no petroleum products and no harmful chemicals. This is a new, lighter formula based on their original balm formula. It still delivers the extraordinary moisturizing properties of their Super Moisture Body Balm, but instead…this is in a rich, saturating cream. The Super Moisture Butter Creme is soft on the hands, body and legs to soothe, soften and relieve dry or irritated skin. Skin Free has taken OUT the soy for those who are allergic to soy. It is very effective for red, irritated, flaky skin – cracked and dry feet, hands, elbows or wherever you need an intensive moisturizer.
You can use this all over your body right before bedtime to get rid of alligator skin. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and dehydration. Pregnant mothers can also use the Super Moisture Butter Creme to help prevent stretch marks because it has no harmful preservatives or fragrances.

I also received the Chemical Free All Natural Sensitive Skin Sunscreen SPF30+. It is an effective, pleasant-smelling, non-greasy sunscreen that is good for your skin. UVA and UVB protection for the beach, vacations and fun! I love that it absorbs into my skin rapidly. It smells great, also!

Last, but not least, I received the All Natural Deodorant Stick to review. Skin Free’s favorite antibacterial essential oil is Niaouli. They combine it with baking soda and naturally absorbing clay to make a pleasant, unisex deodorant. It is proven effective up to 102 degrees! This deodorant is aluminum free and effective! It inhibits the growth of bacteria which causes odor. The 2.65oz tube will last a long time and won’t irritate delicate skin! It glides on easily, but it stays on for hours!
