We blended our favorite mature skin hydrosol—Frankincense—and then I started playing. I added some water soluble hydrolized oats to leave a soft, velvety feel on the skin (studies have shown that hydrolyzed oats retain significantly more moisture no matter what the humidity, and gain up to 50% more moisture at relative low humidity when extra moisture is most needed). We were finally able to source more hydrolized rice protein (Colhibin), a plant derived peptide that protects collagen fibers from degradation, protecting the natural collagen in your skin, promoting smooth skin and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We have been without this additive for a long time and are delighted to be able to formulate with it again! For product safety, we added a proven, paraben-free preservative, Optiphen ND, (Phenoxyethanol (and) Benzoic Acid (and) Dehydroacetic Acid).
This toner leaves mature skin feeling velvety soft with a youthful glow.
Use on a cotton ball after cleansing, upon awakening, or under your moisturizer. Great to use any time, but I love it in the morning…I’ve cleansed my face at bedtime, how dirty can it be? A spritz of our Toner on a cotton ball leaves me feeling ready to face the world.
