Willowherb Clarifying Essence



  • Details
    Is your skin feeling congested? Inflamed? Covered in acne? This oil-dissolving liquid serum is your answer. With 1.5% Salicylic Acid, the only oil-soluble exfoliant, meaning it is also the only one that actually gets into clogged pores and blemishes to clear away bacteria and inflammation. Backed up by Willowherb, White Willow Bark, and Meadowsweet (all containing this BHA's botanical precursor, Salicin), this essence will cut the grease and calm your face.

    Key Ingredients:
    ~1.5% Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid that dissolves oil and kills acne-causing bacteria
    ~ Salicin-rich extracts of Willowherb, Willow Bark, and Meadowsweet Herb
    ~Anti-inflammatory beauty Calendula Marigold
    ~Tetrapeptide-1, which aids in collagen production and tissue repair
    ~Chickweed, which contains saponins that molecularly resemble cortizone

    Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Juice, Propanediol, Salix Alba (White Willow) Bark Extract, Spiraea Ulmaria (Meadowsweet) Extract, Sculletaria Laterifolia (Skullcap) Extract, Stellaria Alsine (Chickweed) Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Water (and) Dextran (and) Tripeptide-1, Salicylic Acid, d-Panthenol, Calendula Officinalis (Marigold) Extract, 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!

    A repurchase. I absolutely love this, and it has become a holy grail. I wear a variety of sera, but I put this on top of all of them day and night. Haven't had a breakout since I started using it consistently!

    This is amazing!! Really helping with hormonal breakouts, and feels great on the skin. It honestly works so much better than neutrogena and other chemical-ridden brands. I've been putting this on top of my sera every night. The owner is so helpful with answering questions. She also included a sample of the eye cream which is lovely! I'll have to get a full size of that soon. I love this shop and knowing my skincare has natural ingredients from the Pacific NW. Will be a forever customer.

    So far it's what I expected, essentially the rosy cheeks mask in a form I can use every day without rinsing off. My skin is so soft and extreme exam stress hasn't produced any new breakouts yet. Cute packaging and handwritten notes with all the purchases (:
