Powerful Ingredient Synergies For Radiant Skin
Multi-beneficial skincare starts with a refusal to settle for simply good enough. Why offer only hydration when you can add exfoliation, strengthening and brightening? Why simply nourish when you can also revitalize, firm and soothe? Rather than one hero ingredient doing all the heavy lifting, the formulas for Active Treatment Essence and Active Botanical Serum are like symphonies, with multiple ingredients playing together in harmony, each contributing to a long list of benefits. See which powerful ingredients work in tandem for a streamlined, two-step routine that is minimalist in effort and maximalist in results.
Step 1 | ACTIVE TREATMENT ESSENCE
With over 30 powerful botanicals, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, probiotics and adaptogens, Active Treatment Essence is formulated to deeply hydrate, brighten, firm and restore balance and radiance to the skin.
Micro and Mini Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe, Apple Pectin
Like sponges, absorbing and trapping water, these natural humectants all work to hydrate the complexion by increasing the water content in skin cells, making them the ultimate skin-plumping trio. The two molecular sizes of hyaluronic allow for deeper absorption into the skin, effectively delivering hydration on two different levels of skin for an even greater and more noticeable smoothing effect.
FOR BRIGHTENING AND COLLAGEN SUPPORT
Kakadu Plum, Acerola Fruit, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Marshmallow, Helichrysum
Antioxidant vitamin C is synonymous with brightening and firming, and the clinical levels of vitamin C in our formula come from fruits with some of the highest percentages of collagen-supporting vitamin C in the world. Together with niacinamide, a multi-tasking form of vitamin B3, which evens out skin tone while boosting radiance, as well as plants like marshmallow and helichrysum, with natural brightening abilities, it is a unique combination of ingredients that ensures skin is revitalized and the appearance of discoloration minimized.
Lactic Acid, Phytic Acid, Pineapple, Papaya, Phyto Ferment™
Layering multiple sources of gentle exfoliation was key to achieving a safe and effective daily exfoliant for all skin types. Plant acids such as lactic acid, which also hydrates, and phytic acid, an exfoliant found in seeds that targets blackheads and enlarged pores, pair with fruit enzymes to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a fresh complexion. Our fermentation component, Phyto Ferment™, amplifies the effects of these natural acids and enzymes while maintaining an exfoliation that is gentle enough for even sensitive skin.
FOR BALANCE AND STRENGTHENING
Probiotics, Adaptogens, Microalgae
Simply hydrating the skin can do wonders when it comes to a balanced complexion, but we also turned to ingredients that actively work to maintain equilibrium in the skin. The probiotics, or good bacteria, produced during our Phyto Ferment™ help maintain a healthy mix of bacteria for a balanced skin flora that is less susceptible to inflammation. These work alongside balancing adaptogens, naturally non-toxic medicinal botanicals with roots in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, including gotu kola, moringa and astragalus. And since strength and balancing go hand in hand, we added microalgae, which provides abundant bioavailable, fortifying nutrition, making our formula the ideal way to bring stressed skin back to baseline and remain there.
Step 2 | ACTIVE BOTANICAL SERUM
Crafted from 22 nutrient-rich botanicals and a strategic group of essential oils, Active Botanical Serum deeply nourishes the skin with restorative moisture to bring out a healthy, “I woke up like this” glow.
FOR BARRIER SUPPORT
Avocado, Evening Primrose, Nettle, Rosehip, Grape Seed
Our formula uses both nourishing oils and plant power to deliver profound moisture, reinforce the lipid barrier and lock in vital, balancing hydration. Avocado, evening primrose, grape seed and rosehip oils treat your skin to a full array of essential nutrients, rich fatty-acid content, omegas and skin-supporting ceramides while targeting oxidative damage. For an extra fortifying boost, we used nettle, which has more of the strengthening and elasticity-promoting mineral silica than any other plant.
FOR SOOTHING AND REDNESS REDUCING
Alfalfa, Calendula, Dandelion, Cypress, Rose
Nature is full of plants with soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. Combining a number of these extraordinary botanicals, our formula is a powerful salve for irritated skin. Alfalfa, calendula, and dandelion are all added to our infusion as whole plants, offering their natural ability to calm compromised skin, reduce redness and ease irritation. Along with these, our formula includes the leaf oil of the cypress tree and rose oil, both of which have been used since ancient times to soothe irritation in the skin.
Turmeric, Carrot Seed, Calendula, Frankincense, Tamanu
Part of protecting your complexion is a routine high in antioxidants, powerful skin-defenders and free-radical-fighting agents that help shield the complexion from environmental stressors. Because antioxidants are part of how plants protect themselves, they are abundant in nature. Our formula brings together a number of ancient protectors like turmeric, frankincense, tamanu, and carrot seed to support your skin and boost its defenses against free-radicals.
Lavender, Lemon, Carrot Seed, Sea Buckthorn
Our formula is filled with restorative botanicals. Among these are lavender, lemon, and sea buckthorn, which promote cellular renewal and increase brightness so your healthiest skin always shines through. The carrot seed oil in our formula is also a rich source of the antioxidant vitamin A (as beta carotene), which the body naturally converts into ultra-renewing retinol.
