Mountain Micellar Water

from 13.00

Micellar Water hails from France, and thank goodness someone figured that science out!

The “water” itself, {at least by our standards} is a combination of oils and hydrosols. When the two get shaken together they form little “micelles'“, or tiny oil molecules suspended in water. This solution does not leave your face oily, or greasy, and can be used over the entire face to remove makeup, or the dirt of the day. The small “micelles” latch onto the impurities of the skin and dissolves them with the wipe of a cleansing pad or washcloth.

Willow (Salix spp.) is extracted into this formula for reducing redness, inflammation and restoration to the sensitive skin of our face and especially around our eyes. Willow helps to tonify and smooth fine lines, while brightening the under-eyes.

Gumweed (Grindelia spp.) is used for its skin soothing and regenerative properties. I like to compare it to the often used calendula flower, but it is from the wild and much more rich in skin healing resins.

Hibiscus (Hibiscus spp.) is a part of the mallow family, and has all the skin soothing and moistening benefits of all Malvaceae’s. It is a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which helps to exfoliate, reduce clogged pores, and balance the oils of the skin.

All of these herbal ingredients are rich in antioxidants that help reduce the impact from environmental stressors. This combination is perfect for anti-aging and making the skin look more youthful and firm.

Ingredients: willow, hibiscus, gumweed hydrosol, castor oil, glycerine, rose hip seed oil, vitamin E oil, magnolia essential oil

All ingredients wildcrafted or organic
