A powerhouse antioxidant booster packed with nutrient rich concentrated botanical extracts that act to support skin's barrier while creating a warm and healthy carotene glow.

CO2 (Supercritical Extraction) is one of the most efficient methods of creating a substance that embodies the entire plant and its capabilities. The CO2s of organic sea buckthorn, organic pomegranate and organic rosehip, all rich in powerful bioactives, work together to repair dry skin while Frankincense CO2 soothes and revitalizes it.

Customize your routine by adding two drops to your serum or moisturizer to boost its anti-aging activity.

Normal to Dry.

A concentrated formula of botanical extracts with high levels of antioxidants to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.

A cooling and soothing formula suitable for sensitive skin. Provides a warm glow to the skin.

Sea Buckthorn CO2: This CO2 extraction is from the pulp of the bright orange sea buckthorn berry and contains 34% palmitic acid and 31% palmitoleic acid, fatty acids found naturally in our skin. They function similarly to our sebum forming a protective layer that keeps moisture in. Sea Buckthorn CO2 has a high level of beta-carotene that transforms into anti-aging retinol, an active form of vitamin A.

Rosehip Seed CO2: The seeds of the rosehip from the rose bush are packed with the two essential fatty acids omega 6 linoleic acid and omega 3 linolenic acid that are known for their soothing moisture barrier repair and maintenance. This CO2 also contains oleic acid, beta-carotene, phytosterols, and vitamin E.

Pomegranate Seed CO2: The seeds of the pomegranate yield a lipid that contains 70% of the rare omega 5 fatty acid called punicic acid, which acts as a strong antioxidant to repair dry skin. Pomegranate seed CO2 also boasts other firming components such as linoleic acid, oleic acid, vitamin E, phytosterols, and squalene. The combination of these bioactives help protect skin’s moisture barrier and reduce the signs of aging.

Frankincense CO2 - Wild Grown & FairWild® certified: This CO2 comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree. Like all resins, this is the repair system of the tree and has soothing, rejuvenating properties. The main constituents are the antioxidant terpenes alpha-pinene, insensol, and caryophyllene. The last two are only in the CO2 and not the essential oil and boast many rejuvenating properties. The supplier of the extract we purchase is FairWild® certified. That means only a few collecting families are authorized, thus yields are extremely limited. Their precious groves of Frankincense trees are rotated and scratched for gum harvest only every third year.

Booster: A blend of concentrated plant extracts that are added to serum or moisturizer to enhance its bioactive properties.  

CO2 (Supercritical Extraction): A method of extracting plant chemicals by using pressurized CO2 as a solvent. It is one of the most efficient extractions to create a substance that embodies the entire plant rather than just the essential oils or triglycerides (cold-pressed oils).  

Carotene: In plants, these orange-coloured pigments turn light into chlorophyll and absorb and scatter UV light. In human skin, they convert to retinol, an active vitamin A that keeps skin smooth and firm. In higher concentrations, the orange pigment provides a warm glow to skin tone.

Add two drops of Antioxidant Booster to your serum or moisturizer and apply to your face and neck.

Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) CO2*, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) CO2*, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) CO2*, Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense) CO2, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) CO2*.

An Antioxidant Powerhouse

This little number has been a true powerhouse. 2 drops mixed into rosey cheeks is all I need to deliver my skin some serious antioxidants and GLOW! The bright orange colour of this might be intimating and it actually does add colour to the skin but it’s the most beautiful, glowy sheen. You really only need 2 drops though, any more and it will be too much (for my fair skin anyways)

For glowing skin

I’ve added this to my nighttime routine with two drops in my moisturizer. I love the texture and with that bright colour you know it’s full of antioxidants, just don’t overdo it, a little goes a long way for glowing skin!
