Unveil a more luminous complexion with this wildcrafted, plant-based formula of rosa rugosa (beach rose) and lady's mantle infused in fractionated coconut oil, and Japanese knotweed roots infused in sweet almond oil. Over time and with daily use, it helps lighten dark spots and areas of discoloration, and evens out overall skin tone. You can use it as a targeted treatment or for your entire face. A little bit goes a long way.
Japanese knotweed is super-high in resveratrol, which brightens and protects skin, has skin-calming properties that can minimize redness, enhances tissue hydration, and can protect skin from environmental influences. It has also been shown to preserve dermal collagen, stimulate cellular renewal, and help increase skin's thickness.
Rosa rugosa, also known as beach rose, has many properties that are beneficial to skin. It's a natural antibacterial that heals acne, is anti-inflammatory so it can calm sensitive skin and help soothe rosacea and eczema, contains high amounts of vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant and has the potential to lighten ages spots, and contains natural oils that improve elasticity and help lock moisture into the skin to keep it feeling soft and smooth.
Lady's mantle's high tannin content provides astringency that helps tone and tighten the skin, reduces the size of pores, and promotes a glowing complexion. It's flavonoid content has anti-inflammatory properties that calm, soothe, and heal skin.
My oils of choice for this infused blend are fractionated coconut oil (not the same as non-fractionated) and sweet almond oil, both of which have a rating of 2 on the comedogenic rating scale, so they won't clog pores. Sweet almond oil contains three skin-lightening compounds (phytosterols, Vitamin E, and niacinamide) and is often used in cosmetic products to even out complexion, treat hyperpigmentation, and lighten dark circles under the eyes. Fractionated coconut oil also has skin-lightening constituents that will help brighten your skin and prevent future discoloration.
∆ This formulation comes in a 1/2 oz. amber (to protect from light) glass bottle with dropper. It is airtight and leak-proof.
∆ No essential oils were used in this formula.
