Skin Type: Oily, Acneic, Irritated, Rudy Complexion
Smooth correcting serum performs at the top of the class with non-drying, anti-inflammatory herbs to bring troubled skin to a state of health and balance.
Over 13 exquisite herbs offer a formula packed with toning and refining power with a hydrating, super light texture. Natural acne products tend to be themed on tea tree oil, but we chose Rose as a theme for our recipe. It's gentle, broad-spectrum therapeutic effects fuse perfectly with Organic Coriander, Goldenrod, Fennel, and Yarrow to cleanse and calm pores. Cold-extracted Olive Leaf offers a fraction called Oleuropein known for its potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Organic Licorice and Heather flowers help reduce hyperpigmentation on blemishes, damaged, or irritated skin.
This moisturizer is technically oil-free, as organic Jojoba is a liquid wax, not a triglyceride. It conditions skin without greasiness and allows skin to breathe fully. Sebum is regulated as our formula is neither too heavy or too drying.
There's no need for a harsh retinol when freshly juiced organic Carrot and Helio Carrot CO2 add natural source Beta Carotene. Niacinamide is included at 4% which is a level proven in studies to be more effective than a 1% clindamycin antibacterial gel at preventing acne breakouts. It maintains ceramide levels for ongoing hydration, synthesizes collagen, and evens coloration of the skin. And if we didn't tell you about the amazing scent from the Rose/Bergamot/Frankincense combination we'd be neglecting one of the best parts of this recipe. It is refreshing, and so much more than just a scent, as the essential oils are a key part of the medicinal aspects of our formula.
Individuals with inflamed, dry skin can use this treatment prior to final moisturizing. Individuals with oily skin can use it alone. For maximum effect combine with our Tone - Adaptive Energy Tonique daily and Refine - Clay Renewal Treatment on a weekly basis.
Please note that the Honeysuckle extract used in this product is created as a fresh, cold processed extract in our studio and is NOT the refined honeysuckle extract commonly known as "Plantservative". We were unaware of that product when designing our recipes and use only the whole herb extract which has been used by herbalists for generations.
