THE HONEST ELIXIR
Retinol - Squalane - Antioxidants - AHAs - Humectants - The Honest Elixir has been newly Reformulated with Natural Retinol Alternative, "Bakuchiol"
Our complete concentrated deep green answer to fatigued skin, for use in tandem with your favorite serum. Our most potent double infusion of botanicals for maintaining youthful skin focus on collagen-boosting plant-based retinol, hydrating vegan squalane, protective antioxidants and moisture-attracting humectants. Each of our botanical ingredients is praised for one of these 5 benefits, to keep skin aging gracefully while minimizing undesirable skin issues such as fine lines, dryness, crepiness, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and loss of volume. We chose to include powerful supercritical extractions of plants like rosehip, seabuckthorn and helio carrot root, as well as berry seed oils, locally sourced marshmallow root and hibiscus. Its finished off with a few drops of orange blossom absolute and rare frangipani absolute. We source many of these ingredients from our local Maine supplier and herb farms.
This is named as an elixir rather than a serum to differentiate its purpose... the Honest Elixir should be used a a super-booster treatment BEFORE your favorite daily serum/oil you use. It's a powerful way to boost your skin care and promote better product penetration.
This product contains 1% Bakuchiol(made from the Psoralea Corylifolia seed), the first natural alternative to Retinol without any of the negative symptoms associated with Retinol, such as irritation and barrier disruption: promotes collagen stimulations, encourages hyaluronic acid synthesis and clinically proven to reduce multiple signs of aging. Significant reduction in appearance of roughness, dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, elasticity, firmness, radiance and brightness. Our Bakuchiol ingredient is a natural and well-defined material with a purity level of > 99%.
THE VERBENA HYDRATING MIST
Our beloved Verbena Mist contains a nature's bounty of aromatic hydrosols with medicinal benefits and a nirvana of fragrance. What's more, we craft our own Elderflower Extract here in house, and incorporate it's magic into the Verbena Mist - supercharging circulation, free-radical protection, and nutrient absorption. The carefully chosen botanical ingredients help to promote circulation, which brings oxygen and essential nutrients to the skin cells. Gentle plant astringents work to keep bacteria at bay and regulate skin oils, quickly resolving breakouts while maintaining hydration. Bright and active flower essences brighten dullness and balance complexion. Powerful elderflower antioxidants protect from free radicals that damage skin. All of this, with a slightly acidic PH, welcoming to our skin's microbiome and hostile to harmful pathogens.
