ARCANA

This creamy, green hydro-milk harnesses the resiliency of desert botanicals to stimulate hydration and cellular renewal without the use of irritating acids or actives. Plants that grow in desert ecosystems are rich in polysaccharides (water-loving sugars) and adaptogenic compounds which help them adapt to UV radiation and drought. We combine these desert adaptogens with other potent plant extracts that function as retinol-analogs, including Bakuchiol from the Babchi plant and Moth Bean extract, to stimulate the skin's own cellular turnover process.  

Tularosa should be stored in a cool, dark place to maintain its longevity as we did not include the use of traditional emulsifiers in order to maintain the most potent serum.

Benefits:

  • Smooths fine lines
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Strengthens skin barrier
  • Reduces Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
  • Hydrates
  • Evens skin tone and texture

Perfect for: All skin types; particularly dry, dull, hyperpigmentation, rough texture, acne-prone, inflamed.

KEY BIOACTIVES:

  • Chaparral (also known as Creosote) is native to the southwestern United States and is known to have anti-septic and antioxidant properties which are useful for oily and/or problem skin.
  • Yerba Santa is a desertic plant that is rich in mucopolysaccharides and glycoproteins. It has smoothing and hydrating properties.
  • Like many desert plants, the Blue Agave needs little water to survive, and contains a high amount of carbohydrates and polysaccharides (sugars) which allow it to store moisture to ensure survival during droughts. These natural sugars also help draw moisture to the skin and protect against environmental stress.
  • Prickly Pear Seed oil is prized for its high Vitamin E content, making it one of the most expensive carrier oils in the world. The oil contains many healthful compounds known to have hydrating, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. Research suggests that the contents of prickly pear oil can reduce skin inflammation, as well as prevent skin damage and acne.
