Locally Grown Ingredients
Balm of Gilead
Balm of Gilead, our signature ingredient, is a fragrant medicinal resin that we meticulously handpick from the woods of Northern Wisconsin. It has been used for centuries because of its natural healing and pain relieving properties. Balm of Gilead can help to reduce inflammation, scarring, blemishes and soothe the skin.
Harvesting Balm of Gilead can be incredibly time consuming and a labor intensive process, but we do it to make sure we have the highest quality product to hand on to you. Once the buds have been harvested, we gently crush them to release the powerful resin contained within, then we infuse the mixture into an oil blend designed to provide the most effective and nourishing benefits to your skin.
Aloe Vera Water
Aloe is one of the leading therapies for sunburn. It nourishes the epidermis, providing it with high levels of moisture and has been proven to help dry and flaky skin. It has also been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and contains naturally high levels of salicylic acid, which reduces blemishes on the skin and treats irritation. Only the finest quality, organic aloe water makes it into our product, ensuring there are no harmful contaminants that could sit on top of your skin and cause irritation and dryness.
Rosemary has a universal nourishing effect on all skin. It features many great benefits such as reducing inflammation and oiliness while naturally tightening pores.
Our hydrosols are 100% contaminant and chemical free so you don't have to worry about putting toxic chemicals on your skin. Unlike other hydrosols, which are produced as byproducts and contain foreign chemicals and toxins, our rosemary hydrosol is delicately stream distilled in-house from the highest quality organic moroccan rosemary leaves leaving your skin feeling recialized and refreshed with its sweet fragrance.
Balsam Fir Hydrosol
Our balsam fir hydrosol is sustainably harvested by hand and steam distilled from our family-owned farm. We combine the invigorating combination of balsam fir boughs, needles and twigs to produce a powerful and 100% natural product. Balsam fir is one of of the most potent and versatile ingredients we use in our products and emanates a fresh and uplifting aroma.
The balsam fir hydrosol is a natural astringent and contains some of nature’s best antioxidants. Because of this, balsam fir hydrosol has been proven to reduce inflammation, kill harmful bacteria and deliver hydration to all skin types. When applied daily, balsam fir hydrosol will restore pH balance while refreshing and toning the skin and pores, readying your skin for makeup application. Because we control the entire process from forest to product, we know there are no synthetic chemical or contaminants in our high quality final product.
Ginger root, also known as Zingiber Officianale, has a long standing history of medicinal use. Due to its powerful herbal components, ginger extract is a wholesome go-to addition to any skincare regimen.
Ginger extract contains a high percentage of gingerols, the active ingredients in ginger root that contain antioxidants, or as we like to call them “super ingredients” that approve the appearance of the skin. Antioxidants protect the skin by reducing the amount of free radicals that cause damage to the skin. Gingerols and other components of the ginger root have been proven to have excellent anti-aging properties due to their ability to almost totally prevent the collagen in your skin from breaking down by inhibiting the enzyme collagenase leaving you with youthful and smooth skin.
Known as a “miracle oil” by thousands because of its nourishing effects on the skin, Rosehip oil is a relatively new oil to enter the holistic skin care marketplace. Harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, rose hip is packed full of nourishing fatty acids and vitamins A and C, along with other powerful antioxidants.
Rosehip oil has a light, non oily feel, and absorbs into the skin quickly, delivering its super-powered nutrients where the body needs it the most. All of these factors combine to deliver moisturizing, anti-aging benefits to the skin while removing blemishes and traces of fine lines and scars on the skin.
Free of animal products and produced from wheat-free fermentation, Hyaluronic Acid is one of the most potent moisturizers on the market today. Hyaluronic acid is gentle on the skin and helps to keep the skin nourished and soft.
Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in your body’s skin and cartilage. It is proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines by naturally aiding in the production of collagen. Hyaluronic Acid will naturally draw moisture into the upper layer of your skin, where it is needed the most.
A well known and respected skin care ingredient, Vitamin E is excellent at neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise damage your epidermis. Vitamin E plays a huge role in increasing the levels of nutrients in your skin, aiding in the anti-aging process by smoothing and treating dark circles under the eyes.
Incorporating vitamin e is an essential to any skincare routine. Vitamin E has been proved to treat blemishes, scars and stretch marks with the powerful antioxidants it contains and will leave your face feeling more youthful and healthier.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea extract is one of the most powerful natural anti-aging products on the market today. Applying green tea deeply nourishes the skin by increasing circulation and providing oxygen to the cells that need it most.
We source pure and 100% organic green tea in the green tea extract used in our skincare products. Our green tea extract contains over 50% polyphenols, superpowered free radical scavengers that protect and nourish the skin. Results from a clinical study showed that use of products containing green tea extract had a huge reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
