Everyone's skin makes and needs oil. But sometimes our oil production goes into overdrive, leading to clogged and congested skin and uncomfortable, oily skin. I created this serum to address those exact problems. To my signature blend of botanical hydrosols and aloe, I've added a unique combination of skin soothing and oil controlling plant extracts. Control sebum production without drying or dehydrating your skin with my Balancing Serum. Use after cleansing, exfoliating, and toning as a gentle hydrating step before moisturizing. Always vegan, as organic as we can be, and kind. **Chaparral extract from the chaparral or creosote bush has powerful antiseptic and antioxidant properties and is excellent at helping to regulate sebum production. **Calendula is an absolute superstar vulnerary herb. Its extract is loaded with triterpenoids, saponins, and flavonoids and is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent. It soothes, heals, and helps repair tissue damage and balance the skin. **Chia seed biopolymer is the backbone of this formula. This modified chia protein is able to both regulate sebum protection while protecting your skin's moisture barrier and preventing dryness and dehydration. It is an absolute gift to skin that tends to overproduce oil. **Sea kelp extract is full of nourishing vitamins and minerals such as iodine and is also rich with antioxidants. It can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and breakouts, work to hydrate the skin and help it retain moisture, and can help to protect your skin from environmental stressors. **Ferments are full of probiotics, vitamins, and minerals that the ferment process has made bio-available. They balance the skin's biome allowing it to resist environmental stress, stay hydrated, and recover quickly. **Aloe is cooling, soothing, and moisturizing. It is also full of skin-rejuvenating enzymes and amino acids. **Rose geranium is a soothing, calming treat for the skin. It has anti-aging and skin-balancing properties making it excellent for mature, irritated, or acne-acne-prone skin. **Rose is known to soothe irritated and dry skin. It has anti-aging properties that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and thread veins. It is also a humectant - drawing hydration into the skin. **Calendula has been used traditionally to heal inflamed, damaged or irritated skin. It is a known anti fungal and antimicrobial. **Lavender soothes, cools, and rejuvenates dry, irritated skin. It also has antiseptic properties that can help control blemishes and aid in skin healing.

ADDENDUM I work hard to formulate and craft the finest products I can for you. This means ethically sourcing my ingredients, reducing my carbon footprint, and making sure my packaging is as recyclable as possible. I grow as many of the herbs that I craft with as I can, with the constant goal of 100% garden-grown. I source locally what I cannot yet produce myself. I am working to phase essential oils out of my products in favor of whole-plant infusions wherever possible. My preservative blend for my aqueous products is both good for your skin and good for the planet. No parabens, petrochemicals, or formaldehyde-releasers here! Please remember that all of my products are crafted by hand in small batches in my workroom. I follow standard sanitation procedures, but this is an environment that does contain gluten, nuts, a variety of plant/nut oils, and an abundance of both fresh and dried plant matter. Always patch test a new product, even if you are familiar with every ingredient. Allergies can appear overnight. ***Please see photos for complete ingredients. Thank you!***
