Hydrating Elixir I: Phytonutrient Replenish is a combination of deeply hydrating, nutrient and antioxidant rich whole plants that keep skin looking healthy, firm and supple. Our Hydrating Elixirs are an essential step to hydration within a Laurel Skin ritual. This is a hydrating mist/serum combination, made of artisan distilled single farm hydrosols, along with a combination of herbalist-made and housemade whole plant extracts. The plants chosen for this Elixir bring an abundance of polysaccharides, B vitamins, enzymes, bioflavonoids, polyphenols, resveratrol, vitamin C, and plant humectants that mimic hyaluronic acid; all phytonutrients within their whole plant synergy. This microbiome balancing Elixir is good for all skin types, and is best suited to dry, mature, sensitive, and rosacea symptoms.
Heirloom Rose is the prominent plant in this formula, while earthy roots, barks, mushrooms and spicy resins play an important role to make this formula more deeply hydrating, restorative, and diverse in beneficial plant constituents. Marshmallow Root is a key player, which has the ability to deeply hydrate fascia and move through stagnation with its unique combination of helpful minerals, B vitamins, and mucilaginous compounds. Polysaccharides found in Reishi Mushroom and Saponins in skin-brightening Licorice Root soothe the skin and help nutrients to move through the lipid barrier. Resins and barks strengthen and promote cellular healing and repair from artisan distilled Sandalwood and Frankincensehydrosols. Vitamin C, alongside all of its helpful co-factors, is present and plentiful in Hibiscus, Hawthorn, Schisandra, and colorful Rose petals. Rose is an ideal plant for sensitive skin and repairing a damaged skin barrier. Roses are present in this Elixir in five different forms: hydrosol, two different types of fresh heirloom petal infusions, Rosehip supercritical extract, and a hint of rare White Rose essential oil.
Hydrating Elixer I
Rose – Multitude of Roses! Rose hydrosol and rare White Rose essential oil both have hydrating and barrier strengthening properties. Housemade extracts of local heirloom roses within two different mediums, each capture an abundance of nutrients such as Vitamin C, flavonoids, anthocyanin, and gallic acid. Roses are gentle and soothing to the skin, while deeply hydrating and supportive to connective tissue.
Marshmallow – This mucilaginous and polysaccharide rich root has an incredible ability to hydrate. It is nature’s form of hyaluronic acid, plumping up each cell with hydration and wrapping them in what feels like a cooling hug. It is high in B Vitamins and betaine making it soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory, and softening to the skin.
Rose Geranium – Our biodynamic Rose Geranium Hydrosol from California is an extraordinary gem. Rose Geranium is strengthening and repairing to broken capillaries, as well as balancing to oil production, pH levels, and the skin’s microbiome.
Calendula – Find both Calendula Hydrosol and a whole plant Calendula extract in this Elixir, in order to fully capture each medicinal compound within this powerhouse plant. Calendula is a resinous, healing humectant that helps our skin retain its hydration and a supple glow. Calendula is a true tonic with an impact on a cellular level and can restore skin health like no other.
Astragalus – Astragalus has been closely studied for its ability to strengthen and repair telomeres, which are responsible for cellular aging. Telomere repair is essentially DNA repair. Astragalus is also anti-inflammatory, stimulates surface immunity, and supports connective tissue health.
Helichrysum – Grown in the Pacific Northwest and artisan distilled, our Helichrysum Hydrosol is powerful medicine. Cooling and soothing Helichrysum is deeply regenerative to the skin, and healing to scars and sun damage.
