Ambient Moisture Liquid
Elevated Formula! New emulsifier-free carrier system that is even closer to the skin’s lipid matrix, gentler preservation, and enhanced botanical extractions.

A creamy serum for everyday moisture while offering comfort to compromised and dehydrated complexions. A unique emulsifier-free blend that mirrors the skin’s lipid matrix for enhanced protection against moisture loss and strengthens overall barrier function. The skin is left feeling incredibly soft and calm.
Soothing humectants from a potent marshmallow root extract, snow mushroom, and linden flower infuse the skin with hydration. Whole plant extracts of gotu kola, plantain, self-heal, red clover, and horse chestnut ignite cellular regenerative communication pathways to help firm, soften texture, even out redness, and recover from environmental stress.
Includes our Botanical Enrichment Method with advanced, potent extractions and encapsulation for optimal bioavailability & efficacy.
Scent: No essential oils added, the aroma is herbaceous with a hint of strawberry.
Skin Types: Most, including sensitive. For skin with little to no natural oil production, pair with an oil or balm of choice.
Texture: Creamy, absorbs quickly, and has a matte finish with a more subtle glow.
Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) Leaf: Known as one of the “miracle elixirs of life” in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Promotes firmness, reduces scarring, and softens skin texture. It is rich in triterpenoids, which enhance collagen synthesis and inhibit inflammation through compounds like asiaticoside.
Snow Mushroom (Tremella fuciformis): Offers a unique polysaccharide composition. Its branched β-glucans create a 3D network capable of holding nearly 500 times its weight in water. This exceptional water-binding ability ensures profound hydration to plump skin cells. Furthermore, it contains antioxidants that help combat free radicals, promoting skin health and radiance.
Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) Root: Loved by herbalists, this natural hydrator drenches your skin with moisture, leaving it soft and supple, while also soothing irritation. Abundant polysaccharides form a protective layer on the skin, sealing in hydration. Phenolic compounds like quercetin offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Plantain (Plantago major) Leaf: A skin superhero, Plantain Leaf calms redness, making your complexion even and radiant. Phytocompounds of allantoin and tannins, strengthen our connective tissues and reduce skin irritations. It also contains aucubin, known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Self-Heal (Prunella vulgaris) Flower: Acts as your skin's bodyguard, shielding it from environmental stressors and maintaining its resilience. Contains a reservoir of phenolic acids, flavonoids, and rosmarinic acid, which confer strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Linden (Tilia cordata) Flower/Leaf: Its tranquil properties reduce inflammation and redness. Flavonoids, such as quercetin and kaempferol, counteract oxidative stress, while mucilage soothes irritation, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) Flower: A potent antioxidant, high in isoflavones like genistein, Red Clover Flower combats environmental stress and supports collagen production, promoting skin elasticity.
Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) Seed: Extending into an eye cream, the phyto-compound aescin, strengthens capillaries and reduces under-eye puffiness. Overall it improves circulation, leaving your skin refreshed and glowing.
Phosphatidylcholine (non-GMO sunflower derived, COSMOS approved) benefits the skin by reinforcing its natural lipid barrier, reducing moisture loss, and enhancing protection against environmental factors. Its moisturizing and soothing properties make it effective for softening the skin's surface and reducing irritation. Additionally, it promotes better absorption of other beneficial skincare ingredients while being compatible with a wide range of skin types.
Highly purified phosphatidylcholine and specialized formulation processes create lamellar structures mirroring the skin's lipid matrix: Medium-chain triglycerides, Squalane, Ceremide 3, Phytosterols (from Shea Butter), and Phospoholidids. Collectively it promotes skin barrier recovery while eliminating the need for traditional emulsifiers that can strip away essential skin lipids. The result is a gentle, irritation-free solution that helps maintain a healthy, resilient complexion.
After cleansing and water-based serums or elixirs. Massage 1-2 pumps onto face and neck.
For dry skin follow up with a layer of facial oil and balm of choice.
Designed to be used day and night to moisturize the skin, maintaining long-term vitality and integrity of the skin.
