Antioxidant Serum has every nutrient imaginable for our skin to be vibrant, radiant and healthy. This Serum starts with a 3 month infusion of fresh plants like Gotu Kola (for connective tissue strength), Calendula (for barrier support and carotenoid activity), and Comfrey (for cell proliferation and regeneration), all mindfully sourced from our local artisan farms.
After pressing the infusion by hand, Laurel layers freshly pressed oils like Sea Buckthorn, Pomegranate, and Rosehip for their rich nutrient dense profiles that offer protection from oxidative stress. Infused with essential oils like White Rose, Carrot Seed and Frankincense; each powerful healing plants in their own right for barrier support, tissue repair, and brightening.
Laurel Says: This product was the first I ever created and continues to be the one that I cannot live without. I use it all year long as my primary moisturizer. Sometimes I add our other serums into my daily ritual, but always gravitate back to this one. One of my favorite things about it is when I use it I always notice there are no overpowering essential oils. When I breathe it in deeply, I smell all the fresh carrier oils and whole plant extracts and I know the journey they took to get to the bottle. I think of the Evening Primrose Oil that was freshly pressed for us in California, the artisan pressing of Rosehip that includes the plant’s whole fruit, and the vibrantly colorful Biodynamic® extracts that we make in-house from farms that we have cultivated relationships with over many years with great care. This product to me is the ultimate luxury because I am always thinking of the path each plant took to get to the bottle. This product to me represents freshness, vibrancy, and optimal health.
Gotu Kola - Gotu Kola is a plant that supports connective tissue and collagen, by protecting it and encouraging new growth. Our Gotu Kola is the most vibrant in the world and grown exclusively for us by a nearby farm. It is a plant that we truly cannot do without in any vibrant-aging formula.
Calendula - Calendula is another plant that is a true necessity for healthy skin. It is deeply restorative and healing on a cellular level, with an abundance of carotenoids and resins that our skin can use with ease. It is excellent for forms of skin damage.
Frankincense - Our certified organic Frankincense is distilled in Vermont by a family who travels to Somalia each year for harvesting. This beautiful resin has been used for centuries to revitalize and strengthen the skin.
Pomegranate - This thick and rich seed oil is incredibly protective and nourishing. It visibly moisturizes and plumps immediately, while its vast and unique essential fatty acid profile and antioxidants get to work to deeply restore skin health.
White Rose - Our rare and unique White Rose is gentle and soothing to the skin. It is regenerative to numerous skin functions, including barrier function, hydration, and strengthens and plumps connective tissue.
Jasmine - Our unique Jasmine is hydro-distilled specifically for us. This is the only hydro-distillation done with the Jasmine flower in the world, which prevents the use of hexane extractions while still offering a true representation of this beautiful delicate flower, that also happens to be regenerative to the skin and spirit.
Science: Facial oil efficacy directly relates to the oil quality and source. It is important to keep in mind that antioxidants are not stable, and they vary incredibly from source to source. Things like the weather, farming techniques during growing season, processing and handling during pressing, as well as handling post pressing all play an important role in the phytochemistry of each unique botanical. No oil has a chemical profile that can be relied upon to be consistent across all sources. We choose all sources for our ingredients based on the level of vibrancy and antioxidant activity; making our facial oil ingredients second to none. Most of our oils are pressed to order for us, which is unheard of in the cosmetic sourcing industry. The fact that all of our oils are unrefined means they possess levels of antioxidants and nutrients that are not found in commercial cosmetic oils.
