Oil + Water
By using Oil and Water we support and mimic the skin’s protective hydrolipid barrier. This simple pairing realigns our skin with its own innate rhythm, supports the skin’s own natural defenses, enhances the skin’s ability to detoxify, and encourages the skin’s own moisturizing and hydration strategy. When layered together oils hold the waters to the skin, while waters anchor the moisture from the oils more deeply. This pairing is a perfect delivery system for nutrients. Essential fatty acids, antioxidants and both water-soluble and fat-soluble phytonutrients are delivered and completely bioavailable in this form. Most people who apply a twice daily application of their Oil Serum and HydroSoul find that this simple pairing provides enough moisture and hydration so that they need nothing else for their skin to feel properly hydrated and moisturized.
The Nourishing Duo
Our Nourishing Duo is our first choice for skin that is dry, dull, depleted, devitalized and in need of some extra nourishment. It is also our first choice for someone looking to bring more softness and suppleness to their skin.
Argan Intensive Serum delivers a soothing feast of essential fatty acids, softening squalene, revitalizing tocopherol, barrier-supporting saponins, and the plethora of phytochemicals from frankincense, sandalwood, and jasmine essential oils. It is a deeply nourishing and revitalizing. Argan is especially abundant in oleic acid (omega 9), an essential fatty acid that is often deficient in dry skin. We exclusively use hand-harvested, hand-pressed argan oil from the Al Amal Women’s Co-operative in our formulations. There is nothing quite like this traditionally processed oil.
Tulsi HydroSoul enlivens, protects, and supports the skin's ability to adapt to the ever-changing rhythms of life. Its slightly spicy, slightly sweet, herbaceous aroma is awakening and revitalizing.
Together this Duo leaves the skin incomparably silky soft, and infuses the skin with a vital luminescence.
