Why We Like It

How It Works
Only in nature will you find ingredients that can be described as both ÒpotentÓ and ÒgentleÓ. If youÕre fighting acne and aging at the same time, these superheroes of the plant world are your skinÕs best friend.
Green Tea and White Tea:
Few ingredients have so many superpowers as green and white tea. ThatÕs why we use them instead of just water as our base. Besides delivering all the glorious benefits of antioxidants and polyphenols Ñ astringent, toning, skin soothing, anti- inflammatory to name just a few Ñ white tea is one of the most powerful anti-aging agents, inhibiting enzymes that attack collagen and elastase.
Black Willow Bark Extract:
Meet the original source of salicylic acid. It exfoliates dry, dead skin cells and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, but unlike its synthetically derived clone, it delivers all the benefits without irritation Ñ even at 100% concentration. ItÕs also lipid soluble, so it outperforms other acids on skinÕs outer layers, where cell turn-over slows down over time.
Leave it to nature to create a stunning contradiction like the helichrysum. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties have been used for centuries to fight infection, but itÕs also a soothing anti-inflammatory that heals wounds and minimizes scarring.
