Oily Skin

Genetics play the largest role in determining oily skin, although just like dry skin, oily skin can be impacted by skin care products, the seasons, weather, diet, health and more. Managing oily skin, or oily skin with acne can seem like walking a tight rope. One day it may feel dry and the next oily. 

Understanding how the skin functions helps to keep oily skin balanced. Using the right combination of ingredients will assist your skin to behave in a predictable and reasonable manner. One of the most important elements in helping to balance oily skin is providing hydration. Oily skinned people who do not use a moisturizer will often suffer dramatically from being tight and dry to super oily in the skins attempt to obtain balance. Cleansers that deeply clean the skin are ideal, but then it's of the uttmost importance to hydrate it after, ideally with a water based ingredient. Because the skin cannot manufacture water, when it's depleted of this integrall component, it will instead do what it can....make oil to compensate. You in turn, sensing the oiliness, will wash it more or use harsh ingredients like alcohol in an attempt to reduce the oil and around and around you go! 

Each of the products listed on this page are perfect for oily skin. You'll find several of the water based products (Freedom Rose, *Apple Each Day, and Dry Erase Serum), all of which are ideal to use every day either as a stand alone moisturizer, toner, or underneath a lightweight moisturizer such as Vodka Tonic or Salvation Lightweight Facial Cream. We'd love to help you solve your challenged skin issues, so feel free to email us if you need direction.

Concord Grape Distillate and Hyaluronic Acid is loaded with valuable nutrients to combat damaged cells that lead to sun damaged and aging skin.

For those suffering from extreme dryness and tighness we suggest also adding Veggie Moist to your skin care regimine in addition to this serum.
Hyaluronic Acid: Also know as Sodium Hyaluronate, has the ability to retain water - much like a sponge. Not just a little, mind you; it goes above and beyond happily supplying up to a thousand times it's own weight making it a superb skin humectant. Because of this amazing quality, hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in tissue hydration and moisturization. It's quite simply the ultimate skin plumper! It increases skin smoothness, softens and decreases wrinkles, and even protects cell structure.  We believe plants, herbs, extracts, butters and oil provide the best nourishment for the skin and we only use the plant based variety of this precious ingredient, which is obtained through producing enzymes from a bacteria-based biofermentation process that it is 100% animal free.
