Formally known as the Aer First Light Brightening Serum.
Please note the following changes: Now in a 30 ml dropper.  Added custom ceramide complex & date extract for additional skin barrier protection & regeneration.

Intention

A robust and luxurious oil serum highlighted with a cornucopia of vibrant berries, calendula, carrot, and dates. Elevated by a vitamin C ester and a vegan ceramide complex using pomegranate sterols. Collectively the formula supports collagen production and common skin concerns around fine-lines, scarring, and discoloration.

Essential oil-free, suitable for sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin types.

Botanical Profile

Squalane, a non-comedogenic emollient provides a protective barrier that hydrates the skin to soften the appearances fine lines. It absorbs quickly to provide a velvety finish. Our luxe version is extracted via Co2 from sustainable amaranthus grain, which is one of the highest sources of plant-based squalane.

Ceramides plus pomegranate sterols create a unique complex that mirrors our natural skin to help improve the lipid barrier matrix for enhanced protection from water loss and in turn encourages long term vitality.

Date extract has shown great promise in various studies to improve skin elasticity, increase brightness, greater hydration, and a decrease in redness and hyperpigmentation. (Meer, S.; Akhtar, N.; Mahmood, T.; Igielska-Kalwat, J. Efficacy of Phoenix dactylifera L. (Date Palm) Creams on Healthy Skin. Cosmetics 2017, 4, 13.)

Cranberry seed oil is one of the most abundant sources of polyphenols such as tocopherols and tocotrienols (Vitamin E) which improve firmness and elasticity. It has the perfect ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids meaning it’s better at absorption to deliver all its skin-loving properties.

Raspberry seed is rich in carotenoids and vitamin E. The antioxidant profile is especially effective at supporting concerns around UV damage and calming reactive, sun parched and inflamed conditions.

Rice bran oil is a natural source of ceramides, peptides, ferulic acid, CoQ10, vitamins A and B, in addition to a range of antioxidants such as tocopherol, tocotrienol, and oryzanol. Together they repair lipid barrier damage and protect the skin from free radicals.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a form of vitamin C that is suitable for sensitive skin. Coupled with whole plant-based vitamin E and ferulic acid in the overall formula, the bioavailability is measurably increased to improve clarifying and protective benefits.

Organic, fresh and locally grown calendula flower protects skin from free radicals, reducing inflammation for more acne-prone skin. It increases circulation to help with puffiness and dark circles as an eye serum and reduce scarring as a spot treatment.

Supercritical extract of organic seaberry fruit has astringent properties to firm the skin. Extremely rich in carotenoids, a vitamin A precursor to enhance a healthy glow.

Carrot root extract and carrot oil imparts dense nutrition to improve overall skin rejuvenation and skin brightening.

Daikon radish extract improves absorption for a lightweight feel, making this a wonderful and protective oil for day time use and under makeup. 

Ritual

Add a thin layer all over with attention to fine lines and dark marks. Gently massage and press to assist absorption. For best results apply day and night after cleansing and water-based serums.

It can be used to boost your existing moisturizer, as an eye serum or spot treatment for discoloration.
