Overnight Treatment Balm with Chamomile, Sake, and Vitamin A
If you are looking to treat your skin to a rich, overnight mask that does more than just moisturize and prevent transepidermal water loss - this is for you! This balm starts with a base of three excellent emollient plant butters that together deeply moisturize, restore elasticity, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and prevent dry skin. To that base of butters (mango, cupuacu, and shea), I add the following potent extracts: **Carrot Seed Extract with vitamin A This blend of carrot seed oil, sunflower seed oil, and carrot extract enriched with beta-carotene and vitamin C can prevent and reduce free radical reactions and oxidative/free radicals-induced damage. Carrots are rich in carotenoids and carotenes, tocopherols, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins and this blend has a fatty acid profile ideal of restoring skin elasticity and promoting skin regeneration. Read more about vitamin A below! **Sake extract is rich in vitamins, minerals and essential amino acid and is used to smooth, soften and protect the skin. **Rosehip extract is intensely hydrating and can be used topically to reduce the pace of aging via the regenerative action of topical retinoic acid (vitamin A) which can promote protein synthesis and cell regeneration and produce a smoother more radiant complexion. **Plant-derived bisabolol is a potent antioxidant with well-known soothing and anti-irritant properties that can protect the skin from daily stressors as well as improve the penetration of other ingredients. **Chamomile extract contains alpha-bisabolol, azulene, chamazulene, and matricin which contain anti-inflammatory and anti-erythema qualities and may help to promote skin healing and recovery. **Pomegranate sterols are able to hold more than double their weight in water and are excellent at restoring skin barrier function. If you’ve been looking for a vegan alternative to cholesterols and lanolin, this is for you! **Elderberry extract offers antioxidant and anti-aging skin conditioning benefits.

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!***
