  • Live Botanical

    A robust and luxurious oil serum highlighted with a cornucopia of vibrant berries, calendula, carrot, and dates. Elevated by a vitamin C ester and a vegan ceramide complex using pomegranate sterols. Collectively the formula supports collagen production and common skin concerns around fine lines, scarring, and discoloration.

    • Squalane¬†acts as a protective barrier to soften the appearance of fine lines. It absorbs quickly to provide a velvety finish.¬†Our luxe version is¬†extracted from sustainable amaranthus grain, which is one of the highest and most abundant¬†sources of plant-based squalane.
    • Ceramides¬†plus¬†pomegranate sterols¬†(cholesterol) create a unique complex (3:1:1:1) along with essential & non-essential fatty acids that mirror our natural skin to help improve the lipid barrier matrix for enhanced protection from water loss and in turn encourages long term vitality.
    • Date¬†extract has shown great promise in various studies to improve skin elasticity, increase brightness, greater hydration, and a decrease in redness and hyperpigmentation.¬†(Meer, S.; Akhtar, N.; Mahmood, T.; Igielska-Kalwat, J. Efficacy of¬†Phoenix dactylifera¬†L. (Date Palm) Creams on Healthy Skin.¬†Cosmetics¬†2017,¬†4, 13.)
    • Cranberry seed oil¬†is one of the most abundant sources of polyphenols such as tocopherols and tocotrienols (Vitamin E) which improve firmness and elasticity. It has¬†the perfect ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids meaning it‚Äôs better at absorption to deliver all its skin-loving properties.
    • Raspberry seed¬†is rich in carotenoids and vitamin E. The antioxidant profile is especially effective at supporting concerns around UV damage and calming reactive, sun-parched and inflamed conditions.
    • Rice bran oil¬†is a natural source of ceramides, peptides, ferulic acid, CoQ10, vitamins A and B, in addition to a range of antioxidants such as tocopherol, tocotrienol, and oryzanol. Together they repair lipid barrier damage and protect the skin from free radicals.
    • Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (10%), a stable vitamin C derivative that is suitable for sensitive skin. Coupled with whole plant-based vitamin E and ferulic acid in the overall formula, the bioavailability is measurably increased to¬†improve¬†clarifying and protective benefits.
    • Organic, fresh, and locally grown¬†calendula¬†flower protects skin from free radicals, reducing redness¬†for more acne-prone skin. It increases circulation to help with puffiness and dark circles as an eye serum and reduces¬†scarring as a spot treatment.
    • Supercritical extract of organic¬†seaberry¬†fruit has astringent properties to firm the skin. Extremely rich in carotenoids, a vitamin A precursor to enhance a healthy glow.
    • Carrot¬†root extract and carrot oil (carrier oil not the essential oil) imparts an additional surge of flavonoids to improve overall skin rejuvenation and skin brightening.
    • Daikon radish¬†extract¬†improves absorption¬†for a lightweight feel, making this a wonderful and protective oil for daytime use and under makeup.¬†

  • Add a thin layer all over with attention to fine lines and dark marks. Gently massage and press to assist absorption. For best results apply day and night after cleansing, toning, water-based serums and moisturizer. For dry skin, follow up with a facial balm.

    It can be used to boost your existing moisturizer, as an eye serum or spot treatment for discoloration.

    Allow 9-16 weeks with continued use to see effects, according to clinical testing.
