GREEN TEA + ELDERFLOWER | Hand Whipped Face Cream | Limited Edition Summer 2020
GREEN TEA + ELDERFLOWER
Intensely Rich Repair Hand Whipped Face Cream
limited micro-batch summer 2020
A hand whipped emulsion for healing parched, mature, or sun drenched skin. Infused with anti-iflamatory botanicals like my homegrown elderflowers, wild linden blossoms, and homegrown hypericum in high performance base oils (camellia, jojoba, cherry kernal) mean that each phase of the cream is potent with healing properties and void of useless fillers like plain water or plumping agents. Floral Hydrosols and Aloe vera gel compose the water phase to soothe and hydrate, while medicinal herbs work to regenerate the skin while maintaining cellular integrity and genetic expression. Meticulously selected aromatics like green tea, linden, elderflower, orange blossom and carnation provide sensory pleasure and antioxidant action while cooling, calming, and revitalizing the skin from the deepest layers. Protective lanolin and frangipani floral wax gives unparalleled emolliency and liquid probiotics help keep the skin balanced despite a mask-wearing day.
Less is more - apply a very small fingertip amount to clean, moistened skin, allow a few minutes for full absorption, enjoy deeply nourished supple skin. Ideal for dry skin, after-sun, and makeup prep. Can be used just as an eye cream or night cream if you prefer richer creams for that purpose.
Consistency - soft and lotion-like to the touch, yet quickly revealing its denser nature, absorbing into the skin over a few minutes, penetrating into a perfectly supple finish. Non "sweating" like a glycerin based lotion, and non drying like oil free moisturizers. Superb for overwashed hands and dry patches. If the cream begins to show some oil floating, do not fret, it happens sometimes to natural creams when the temperature fluctuates. If you like, you can give it a good stir with a clean spatula.
Aroma - light and polleny floral at the opening from the elderflower and linden (slightly bubble-gummy), then settling into an earthy green-tea yerba mate aroma. Doesn't linger long.
