SCENT PROFILE
Herbal notes of babchi, floral golden champaca, and a fruity-floral scent of the rhododendron flower. Lupine seeds provide a grounding backnote of sweet beans and satisfying buttery nuts.


KEY INGREDIENTS
Bakuchiol: Bakuchiol has recently received a lot of attention among cosmetic chemists as a safe natural replacement for retinol. Bakuchiol 1% concentration (which is what we are using in this product) has been shown to improve aging skin in several categories (wrinkles, roughness, dryness, uneven skin tone, lower elasticity, etc.), and to cause a significant (57%) improvement in acne in seven weeks. Unlike potentially drying or sensitizing retinol, bakuchiol does not cause side effects and it can be used for the daytime without the risk of photosensitization.


Lupine seed: Lupine extracts have been scientifically proven to improve wrinkles, skin firmness, skin elasticity, and sagging facial contour.


Seabuckthorn berry: This vitamin-E- and carotenoid-rich berry is one of the superfoods for the skin. Supplemented with an extra dose of fruit-pulp extract, this boosts the incredible range of seabuckthorn's tocopherols and tocotrienols (vitamin E compounds) and carotenoids (including beta-carotene and lycopene).


Calendula: Quality calendula extractions excel at normalizing the skin, helping with stubborn dryness, roughness, eczema, psoriasis, cold-sore outbreaks, and acne. Calendula adds significant skin-softening benefits and helps the skin recover an even tone.


Açai berry: This very light oil, derived in this case from whole açai berries, has superior acne-reducing and skin-soothing benefits.


Kalahari melon seed oil: For dehydrated or dehydration-prone skin. Many acne-prone skins thrive on this oil as well.


SKIN TYPE
Mature with low elasticity, sensitive, dry to very dry; also for eczema and psoriasis.
