A light daily moisturizer formulated to work well with sensitive, oily or blemish prone skin. A blend of organic Willow Bark, Clove Essential Oil, organic Juniper and organic Cayenne help prevent excess oil production while organic Lavender and MSM support healing. Gentler on your skin than typical anti-blemish products, this moisturizer helps to calm and clarify without dryness, irritation or redness. The non-comedogenic formula provides a perfect amount of moisture to balance oil production. This is a great daily moisturizer for face and body.
Directions for Use: Apply in a light circular motion to freshly cleansed and toned face, neck and upper chest areas, avoiding direct contact with eyes. Moisturizer application should follow serum application, if used. Allow time to absorb prior to makeup application.
Key ingredients and benefits
Organic Willow Bark Extract: has been used for centuries to soothe irritated skin. Containing salicin—from which salicylic acid is derived—this versatile ingredient is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, clearing pores and alleviating acne and irritation.
Organic Cayenne: Great for minor and major blemishes, can improve the look and feel of your skin and increase blood flow to your skin, flooding it with it oxygen and many essential nutrients.
Clove Essential Oil: contains a compound called eugenol which is known for its antibacterial properties. It can prove effective in curing acne, reduce swelling and kill infectious bacteria at the same time.
ProVitamin B5: helps keep skin soft, smooth and healthy
Gotu Kola: helps encourage collagen production, reduce scarring, stretch marks, and increase antioxidant levels in newly formed tissue.
