All clays help to stimulate circulation and you may notice a gentle pulsating sensation after using clay masques. This will typically resolve within 15 minutes.
Chaga is sustainably wildcrafted and has always been a staple adaptogenic ingredient in our formulas - and for good reason! Chaga has the innate ability to restore elasticity to the skin, aiding collagen production and has a unique form of Betulonic acid; notorious for skin regeneration. Chaga also contains powerful kojic acid which helps to fade skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation.
Reishi mushroom is often referred to as the mushroom of immortality and is most beneficial in skincare with its adaptogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-redness, and antioxidant properties. Reishi contains beta-glucans, which are responsible for attracting water from the environment to the skin, resulting in a healthy and hydrated complexion. This creates the perfect groundwork for the synthesis of ceramides, which are the building blocks in the protective layer of your skin that keeps environmental aggressors out and hydration in. The bioactive components of reishi mushroom includes polysaccharides, triterpenes and peptides.
Golden chanterelle mushrooms are also some of the best natural sources for vitamin B3 and are a real Newfoundland treasure! They contain high levels of vitamin B3 or niacinamide – a bioactive compound that is amazingly effective in reducing skin redness, inflammation, irritation.
Licorice Root Extract is a potent adaptogen that dramatically brightens and evens skin tone by inhibiting the production of tyrosinase – the enzyme that triggers the formation of dark spots.
Co-enzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance present in every cell of the human body and is a very powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger.
L-ascorbic acid weighs in at 10% in this waterless formula, packaged in UV blocking violet glass, and is activated at each use, maximizing freshness and efficacy.
Aloe Vera is a soothing adaptogen that hydrates and actively increases adaptability of stress.
Allantoin (vegan source) is extracted from the roots and leaves of the comfrey plant which has long been used for its skin restorative and soothing properties.
Panthenol (vegan source) is a very gentle water-soluble vitamin and powerful humectant used to sooth, hydrate, and repair the skin barrier to prevent trans-epidermal water loss.
