Leaves skin feeling silky soft and ultra- hydrated for a visible youthful glow.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA): Our perfect molecular weight, plant-sourced Hyaluronic Acid was specifically selected for its unique ability to penetrate and provide hydration to the deeper layers of the skin. HA also has the ability to act as a carrier to help deliver other beneficial ingredients to the deeper layers of the skin.
An important note: If a skin care product uses HA along side toxic ingredients, the likelihood of those penetrating to the deeper layers of the skin / blood vessels becomes higher as well. This enables damaging ingredients to reach the most important layers of the skin, and allows hormone disruptors and other chemicals make it to the circulation of the body. With the ability to hold up to one thousand times its own weight in water, this special molecule can help regulate inflammation, helps balance skin’s immunity, and hydrates the extracellular matrix. The correct HA also increases blood flow and stimulates fibroblasts, contributing to tissue regeneration for more youthful, more radiant skin. (1,2,3,4)
Organic Extract of Gotu Kola: Considered a sacred herb and used for centuries, particularly in Asia and India. (1) Gotu Kola is a powerful antioxidant, helps stimulate collagen synthesis, accelerates tissue repair, improves blood flow, decreases scarring, helps rebuild skin’s protein, tightens, tones, and promotes healthy skin. (2,3,4)
Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein: Sourced from lupine flower protein, these peptides are effective MMP inhibitors (1) – meaning that they help stimulate and protect collagen and elastin. This delicate vegan protein also improves skin’s radiance and luminosity, contributing to more youthful and healthier looking skin.
Squalane: Our plant-sourced squalane is a concentrated, highly absorbent, and effective moisturizer. With powerful antioxidant action for all skin types – including acne prone skin, squalane mimics the skin’s natural sebum and improves elasticity along with nutrient retention. It helps detoxify skin and leaves skin silky soft, plump, and hydrated. (1,2)

HYDRATE / ˈhīˌdrāt / to Infuse / to Receive
Water is essential to life – to the life of your cells, to the life of your body, and to the life of our planet. It is as effective at purifying, as it is at delivering life-giving nutrients – but only if it is absorbed. Absorption is defined as the ability of our cells to receive and to fully take in. The right Hyaluronic Acid is key to delivering hydration in a way that cells and the extracellular matrix can effectively absorb and use water.
From a wellness perspective, we have to be as willing to receive as we are willing to give. As you engage in the Ritual of hydrating your skin, be conscious to what you could be better at receiving (love, help, money, a compliment…). What would change if you made the choice to receive?
How to Hydrate Your Skin:
After cleansing and toning, gently massage then press onto face and neck in the morning and evening.
