Desert Rose Moisturizer – 1 oz
Desert Rose Moisturizer is a dynamic multi-purpose facial oil with a potent array of botanical bio-actives that support the function of healthy skin. Suitable for just about every skin type, this oil blend can be used as a daily moisturizing layer or as an eye cream, as well as being an excellent night time moisturizer. Just a half a pea-sized amount applied to toner dampened skin is all you need for moisture that lasts and nourishes deeply.
When we developed this particular blend we had several goals in mind that we wanted to encapsulate into one single product. The driving forces behind the creation of this moisturizer was the desire to achieve the following:
- deeply penetrating moisture that is completely non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types
- protect skin cell structure and aid in cell repair/regeneration/renewal
- rich and diverse source or bioavailable nutrients
With these factors in mind we began with a luxurious base blend of raw shea butter, cranberry seed oil, CO2 extracted Sea Buckthorn Berry and olive-derived squalane. Combined, this base oil blend sets the tone with a wide profile of essential fatty acids, vitamins, phytosterols and antioxidants to aid in collagen production, even skin tone, increase blood circulation and reduce inflammation. Then we added an essential oil blend of Rose Absolute, Wild Corsican Helichrysum, CO2 Wild Frankincense Carteri, CO2 wild myrrh and organic carrot seed. Each of these essential oils hold a myriad of properties that aid in the healing, protection and function of naturally healthy skin.

After cleansing, spritz face and neck with toner and disperse one TINY dab of moisturizer across the skin using the moisture from the toner to help even application. Increase amount as required according to your specific application or skin type… better to start with too little than too much. It is surprising to most how little product is required and just how far a single jar will last!
