What is an Oil Serum
Our Serums are made up of whole plant oils sourced directly from small family farms, women’s co-operatives and co-operative villages around the world. Our approach is a fusion of modalities centered around the goal of realigning skin with its highest potential and awakening its innate resilience. We are inspired by ancient beauty practices, nature and its cycles, ayurveda, homeopathy and traditional western herbalism. Oil Serums enliven, rejuvenate, repair, plump, soften, nourish and balance all skin.

You can always choose an Oil Serum simply because you are drawn to its scent, your skin or spirit calls for a particular plant, or because you enjoy the way it pairs with your favorite HydroSoul. Unless you have an allergy or a scent-aversion, there is no wrong choice when selecting an Oil Serum. To see results over a long period, we recommend sticking with 1 or 2 Serums that support your current skin condition.
Our Serums draw on a number of different plant oils and oil infusions. Some of the core plant oils we draw upon are:

For centuries, Rosehip has been used to care for skin that is damaged, scarred, burned, flakey and irritated. It is especially revered for its ability to beautify skin that is scarred or hyperpigmented. Rich in omega 3 & 6, trans-retinoic acid (vitamin a), carotene and lycopene, it restores, rejuvenates, and illuminates like no other singular oil. Our extraordinary rosehip seed oil comes exclusively from Chile, where it is wild harvested by hand, certified organic, and cold-pressed fresh to order.

A divine ingredient for supporting radiant, dewy, healthy and strong skin. It is a dream for dry, oily, combo, blemish-prone, mature, sensitive. An exceptional moisturizer, it minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plumps, softens, smoothes, calms and nourishes. Our Certified Organic Argan Oil comes to us exclusively from Al-Amal Women’s Cooperative in Morocco. There, it is harvested and pressed into oil by hand.
Vitamin E - smoothes, softens, tones and beautifies.
Sterols - supports protective barrier and encourage healthy elasticity.
Squalene - deeply softens & moisturizes.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) - hydrates skin & is supports natural barrier function.

Jojoba oil is created from the seeds of a humble desert bush and is technically not an oil but a liquid wax ester. Our certified organic Jojoba comes from a small, family-run farm in Arizona, its native territory, and is ideal for nourishing and balancing all skin conditions. Used for thousands of years by the indigenous people of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico to nourish and protect parched skin, its fatty-acid profile resembles human sebum more closely than any other plant oil.
S E A B U C K T H O R N
No other oil has such a tremendous diversity of nutrients in such striking amounts. Abundant in Vitamins A, B, C, D, K, Omega 3, 6, 7, 9 — Sea Buckthorn rejuvenates, pacifies heat, nourishes deeply, and minimizes the appearance of sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
