Herbal Clarifying Facial Oil
An antioxidant-rich herbal serum infused with blemish busting and oil balancing botanicals. Tamanu oil and thyme fight bad bacteria that cause acne, while blue chamomile and immortelle essential oil reduce inflammation and heal damaged skin. The result is a clear, calm and hydrated complexion.
Breakout-prone skin needs moisture too. Here’s one of the best serums for oily skin that both unclogs pores and puts back much needed nutrients to keep skin calm, clear and protected. Green tea, safflower oil and grapeseed oil sink in easily and help balance the skin. Pomegranate oil and evening primrose provide anti-aging and skin enhancing nutrients for softer, more youthful skin — and more than 12 active botanicals in this herbal infusion deliver antioxidants and vitamins deep down to help soothe inflammation, decongest and replenish moisture.
Blue Chamomile essential oil, also known as German chamomile, is a blue essential oil and is one of the most powerful healing oils for the skin. Close in kin to blue tansy, or Moroccan chamomile, this version is high in flavonoids, terpenoids, oxides, and azulenes (chamazulene is what gives the essential oil its beautiful blue color). It has antioxidant, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to help get rid of bad bacteria, it’s an anti-inflammatory and has powerful skin healing effects that work wonders on problematic skin.
Helichrysum, also known as immortelle or everlasting, is a small yellow flower with amazing healing and regenerative properties. It gets its name from the fact that the blooms never wilt! The essential oil extracted from it is a powerful healer and has cell regenerative properties. Used in synergy with blue chamomile, it creates a powerhouse skin healing combo, great for diminishing redness and speeding the healing of blemishes. This is a wonderful anti-aging and healing ingredient.
Tamanu oil is pressed from the nut of the Ati tree, this exotic oil has skin-healing and regenerative properties. It’s also an antibacterial, is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it especially useful as one of the best oils for acne and for treating and other skin irritations.
Pomegranate oil is useful for cell regeneration, anti-aging, and deep moisture. Pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, and ellagic acid, which helps prevent UV damage. There’s also punicic acid (omega-5) which can calm and soothe inflammation and prevent moisture loss.
Grapeseed oil is cold pressed from the seed of grapes, which is rich in beta-carotene, Vitamins D, C, E, and essential fatty acids like linoleic acid. It is a lightweight oil that absorbs easily into skin and can help retain moisture, help skin repair itself and increase elasticity to help reduce signs of aging.
Safflower Oil Infusion - Not all safflower oil is created equal. Apoterra uses a high quality oil that is extremely high in linolenic (Omega-3) and linoleic acid (Omega-6), both beneficial fatty acids. Research has shown that linoleic acid is effective in cell regulation, skin-barrier repair, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Linolenic acid helps speed up wound healing and reduce inflammation. Safflower oil is a light to the touch, but great for both dry and breakout prone skin. Our blend is infused with blemish-busting thyme and sebum-balancing green tea.

I have sensitive skin and had lots of hormonal acne. This is the first product I tired that actually works! I've been using it for 2 years now along with the Smith Farms gentle cleanser and they have done wonders for my face. I still get occasional breakouts (usually tied to hormones during my cycle or a phase of poor eating choices) but very minor relative to my life before this product. I use it in place of a moisturizer. It doesn't leave my face oily for long but does take a few minutes to absorb before applying makeup.
Only been using this produce for a few weeks, but already seeing smoother skin and fewer breakouts. Using this as my AM and PM moisturizer - definitely helping to simplify my skincare routine!
My 13 year old has started to use this when he gets acne and it works really well. His skin is clear and this has become a staple for him!
this serum is amazing. it's light weight and you notice improvements right away. it cleared up my acne around my chin, and i haven't had a bad breakout since i started using it. it's a staple now!!
