We're thrilled to be a two part feature on Jenni Kayne's fabulous blog, Rip + Tan
Take a peek at our interview with designer, Jenni Kayne. We're thrilled to be a two part feature on her blog which features artists, healers, gardeners, food, beauty, design and more! http://ripplustan.com Here's an excerpt from Evan's interview, part one: "R+T: Can you share a bit about what makes your Hydrosols so special? How are they distilled and from where do you source their ingredients? We refer to each hydrosol as a HydroSoul because they are Subtle. Energetic. Authentic. Hand crafted. Our Oregon Tilth certified organic Facial Tonic HydroSouls are sourced from a few small, family farms. Our HydroSouls are completely handcrafted: from working in the field harvesting plants to placing fresh plant material into the still to lighting the fires; from capturing the hydrosol’s first aromatic dribble (enchantingly referred to as ‘angel mist’) to filling, labeling and packaging each bottle. Every aspect of this process is done by hand. For me the word ‘artisan’ is not a marketing term, but rather an authentic description of the love and care that goes into making our products. Our hydrosols are distilled in copper alembic stills at low temperatures over a period of four hours. This ancient method of transforming plant material into subtle, vibrational essence has not changed in over two thousand years. Throughout the year we receive literally thousands of gallons of freshly distilled hydrosol. Each batch is like a fingerprint; there’s only one in the world and no two hydrosols, or batches, are alike. This rich complexity of biodiversity makes a significant contribution to the health of the skin....."
Pomegranate and Himalayan Sea Buckthorn are two exceptional oils known for their ability to soften, soothe and support the skin’s hydrolipid balance...
Pomegranate Repair Serum, with certified organic Supercritical Sea Buckthorn berry Oil, is an impressive combination highly regenerative seed and berry oils with an affinity for soothing the skin. It is unscented (other than the natural aroma of essential fatty acids), and daily use offers a nutrient-dense treatment for skin. Pomegranate Repair Serum visibly transforms the skin. Impressive cell-regenerating benefits are due to the high antioxidant content of polyphenol and conjugated fatty acids. Their combined effect results in strong anti-inflammatory properties, offering an effective solution for quelling the redness and heat of rosacea, psoriasis and eczema... or any sensitive, reacitve skin condition. Daily use increases vitality, elasticity, and suppleness while providing an elegant and silky feeling. Pomegranate Repair Serum has exceptional moisturizing and nourishing properties. Its visible healing effect on mature and aging skin, hyperpigmented skin, dry and cracked skin, irritated, sun-damaged and sunburned skin is truly remarkable. This Serum can also be used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, scars and wounds. Pomegranate Repair Serum with Sea Buckthorn Oil: Boosts restoration and repair of the skin Evens skin tone Scavenges free radicals Contributes to collagen production Helps reverse the damage of sun exposure Assists the skin in healing both new and old scars The addition of sea buckthorn oil adds a nourishing, revitalizing and restorative action. Studies of sea buckthorn oil have suggested that the restorative properties present in the fruit and berry extract may be due in part to its high content of essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols and phytosterols, elements which are all important in the maintenance of a healthy functioning skin. Which one is right for you? Choose Pomegranate Repair Serum instead of Rosehip Serum for more targeted repair on damaged or devitalized skin that requires additional nourishment and protection. Wear Pomegranate Repair Serum, and all our products, in radiant good health! - Evan
