  • Details
    While potent, the purest form of Vitamin C, Ascorbic Acid, is incredibly unstable. For an antioxident, it itself oxidizes at an alarming rate. To combat this, skin care brands use variations created chemically that aid in stabilizing. That's great for them, but I thought I'd look to the ground.

    So many very effective chemicals derived from herbs just don't quite work as well as the whole plant, a fact that befuddles and frustrates scientists (St Joan's Wort is a great example). Here we have a concentrated combination of extracts packed with Vitamin C of their own, plants we've been using forever to stave off good ol' scurvy.

    Key Ingredients:
    ~Rosehip Extract, which boasts literally 800% more Vitamin C by weight than oranges
    ~Pine Needle, when brewed in tea, was used to combat scurvy once upon a time
    ~Gotu Kola, a powerful antioxident packed with Vitamin C as well as A, D, and B

    Ingredients:
    Infusion of Pinus Contorta and Rosmarinus Officinalis, Aloe Barbadensis Juice, Thuja Occidentalis (Arborvitae) Extract, Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Extract, Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hop) Flower Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract, Sodium Lactate, Allantoin, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Lysolecithin (and) Sclerotium Gum (and) Xanthan Gum (and) Pullulan, Arctium Lappa (Burdock) Root Extract, d-Alpha Tocopherol, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate

    Note about Pre-Orders: Due to it being only me doing all this wonderful work, I can only keep a small amount of stock at a time, which I will of course replace as it needs but not always reliably. Thus the Pre-Order option. If you select the Pre-Order option, it may take as long as 2 weeks to fill the order. If it is the only option (other options are sold out, which again, I will try to prevent but will happen) and you would like it by a certain date, shoot me a message along with the order and I will try to accommodate you. If you are strictly time constrained, message before you order so I can tell you if I am able to make that constraint or not so as not to waste your time. Thank you!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Have a particular skincare concern that you don't see addressed in any of the products listed? See something you'd love if it weren't for that one ingredient that you hate/are allergic to/makes you break out? No problem! I can replace most ingredients with something different with little or no change in price in most cases. I can also give you a personal consultation if you'd like! Just shoot me a message.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I can gift wrap anything you'd like! Just please add the Gift Wrapped listing to your cart and note whether you'd like a box or bag.

    Wholesale availability

    As I am only one being I am unable to accommodate wholesale orders at the moment. If you're interested in stocking these in your shop, please message me and we might be able to work something out.

    Returns and Exhanges

    Because these are all natural personal care items, I cannot accept returns for refund after 15 days. I will however accept returns for store credit or exchanges up to 30 days (both deadlines are for contacting me, shipping allows for about 10 days more). If you are unhappy with anything, please contact me and I will try to remedy the situation any way I can. That said, I'm a very small business so I will not be able to come through like Sephora (yet!) so bear with me

    Why are there still chemicals in my "natural" product?

    Chemicals are not inherently bad. We are made of chemicals! What you see on the ingredients list is called the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) and is the name of the chemical compound. I strive to use compounds derived from all natural plant sources as much as I can without sacrificing efficacy. In the description of each product, I describe what each ingredient does and why it is there. I encourage you to do your own research as well and be an informed consumer! If you have further questions about ingredients or formulations or suggestions for different ones (always seeking to improve!), don't hesitate to shoot me a message!

    This is such a great serum, it really seems to tighten my pores! Seller is super easy to communicate with as well.


    Both my husband and I find that this serum really helps improve skin appearance.


    I really like this serum. It only takes a little bit because it spreads so well. I love the smell too.


    I have been using this serum for two weeks and I am obsessed! It has been a complete game changer for my skin. I have dry skin with some redness, hyper pigmentation, and roughness. This serum (along with the sweet bean cleanser) has almost completely cleared up a lot of those issues. My skin is visibly brighter and dewier. I love that these products balance the science behind skin care while using all natural ingredients. Plus, the pine smells amazing and so fresh.
