Ferns And Moss Face Serum
- KEY BIOACTIVES:
- HOW TO USE:
Ferns and Moss Serum is a deeply nurturing, concentrated treatment created especially for the skin that needs serious nourishing, repair, moisture retention, healing, or detoxing. It is a deeply yet slowly penetrating formula particularly suited for skin that seems to be thoroughly dehydrated, mature, wrinkled, prematurely aged, chapped or tight.
Two of the key ingredients in this original formula come from the Amazon rainforest: the medicinal andiroba oil, with a long list of healing properties, from detoxing (removes puffiness) and antibacterial effects (heals and prevents acne) to skin rejuvenating powers (increases the levels of collagen); and copaiba balsam, with its unique sweet scent and well-documented anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, antiviral (helps with cold sores), and foremost soothing properties. Both of these Amazonian oils have been used and revered as rainforest medicines for centuries. Both of these oils render Ferns and Moss noncomedogenic, a unique quality in a strong anti-aging facial serum.
Next comes the Madagascar tamanu oil, an oil that heals wounds without scarring, rejuvenates the skin into its deep layers, and is also antibacterial.
Our seabuckthorn berry oil is a rich red-orange, derived from the berries. This is one of the most powerful botanicals for achieving a youthful, firm skin.
Calendula is an all-time popular ingredient, but there are many different ways of using it in skin care products, from infusions in water or oil to using powdered flowers or just petals. This CO2 extract from whole flowers uniquely retains the flowers' scent and is the most concentrated calendula extract we have come upon, with a texture of thick honey and a soft red, translucent color.
Manquetti mongongo, a relatively unknown as of yet botanical oil from Africa, is thick and rich for amazing nourishing, wrinkle reducing, and anti-aging benefits. Moringa, the superfood from India, offers a green string-bean-reminiscent scent component and hydrating properties. Iranian galbanum is an ancient skin healer with a dry earthy-leafy scent.

Shake periodically to remix. Massage a few drops or more into freshly cleansed, moist skin day and night. Use alone or over a facial oil primer—an aloe-based primer will merge with the oil and facilitate its absorption. Rub in with fingertips, creating outward, upward circles, to stimulate circulation and enhance absorption. Use less during the day and more at night, or use only at night, more if you feel drier and less if your skin is moderately dry (oily zones can be omitted entirely). This serum can be used on the face, neck, décolleté, and under eyes.
