Inspired by the crisp, cool energy of the high-desert. Scents of sage and juniper delicately dance in the air. Creating feelings of clarity from within the mind to the spirit. A careful, yet potent blend of pumpkin and cranberry enzymes plus mandelic acid to quickly reveal a ‘lit from within’ glow. Paired with uva ursi, licorice, hibiscus, rice and whole rosehip fruit oil to even out discoloration. Where the creamy hydrating base is elevated with soothing rose-water, wild melon seed oil, marshmallow, horsetail and skullcap to calm inflammation.
In the facial ritual, this represents the air element and highlighting the progression from the cool Spring into the cusp of the Summer Solstice.
Suitable for most skin types though we recommend using the sensitive skin recommendations & patch testing in the beginning. It can also be used as a spot treatment.
Our perspective on exfoliation is definitely on the ‘less-is-more’ spectrum. We use the term Peel to signal a stronger effect than our other products. Also that it was designed to be removed rather than a leave-on treatment.
It contains 10% mandelic acid, a more gentle cousin of Lactic acid. The large molecular weight tends to fair better with sensitive skin. This is enhanced with fermented Pumpkin & Cranberry enzymes for a more potent effect.
With the lower pH (3.2-3.7) to help improve function, it is neutralized by water when removed with a damp cloth. Where it will continue to work its magic as it’s initially absorbed fairly quickly.
Due to AHAs sunscreen should be worn during the day when in use.
Apply a thick layer (3-5 pumps) of solution over clean, dry skin. For sensitive skin, focus just on areas needing more refinement or clarity. You can also apply the Ambient Moisture liquid underneath to dilute the blend.
Take deep breaths, envisioning clear endless skies that extend beyond the conscious realm. Wait 3-15 minutes for the solution to gently dissolve congestion.
Remove with a cool damp cloth to neutralize and wipe away any excess product.
Follow up with serums, moisturizer, and/or balm. Use 1-5x a month.
