This botanical powerhouse is full of our favorite things, all non-negotiable in our clean beauty book: antioxidants, flavonoids, hydration, and soothing properties. It cultivates facial firmness and radiance without clogging pores, saturating mature skin in natural fatty acids that can help reduce the look of blemishes.WHAT MAKES IT A LUXURY?
This specialty collection is a culmination of our experiments and our experience—not only with organic, biocompatible formulas designed in-house, but also with the worldwide growers who harvest the wildcrafted, nutrient-dense ingredients we enhance.
Each ingredient is chosen not only for its individual high-performance properties and kinship to environment and community, but also for its synergy with other plants, your pores, and the planet. We are harnessing sun, soil, sea—and giving it back to skin.
The result is a breathtaking array of synergistic, supercharged products comprised of organic wildcrafted ingredients, sourced from around the globe. We've included helichrysum, chamomile, rose, and aspen in this nourishing elixir—we're breaking down each of these below.
Helichrysum is a darling of the natural skin care world. When used in skin care products, it is typically used in essential oil form.
It is rumored that the name Immortelle is also in reference to the plant's incredible anti-aging benefits. Helichrysum is an emollient, moisturizing oil that can help reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and even the appearance of skin tone and texture.
Stocked full of antioxidants, this essential oil can also help protect against environmental stressors. Antioxidants help revive the skin to it’s full radiance by working their magic on the appearance of dark spots caused by sun damage.
This oil is ideal for taking care of sun exposed skin, as it is incredibly soothing and rejuvenating.
WHO SHOULD USE HELICHRYSUM?
It is gentle enough for even those of us with sensitive skin, making it an accessible ingredient for all skin types.
A huge draw to immortelle is that it can serve dual purposes, by both moisturizing while still working effectively on oily skin. Those with oily skin may find it works to reduce the appearance of oil build ups while still delivering the moisture the skin needs. This oil works on reducing the appearance of blemishes, which can come hand in hand with oily skin.
Researchers are excited not only about chamomile's health benefits, but its potential in skin care. Many active ingredients in chamomile are powerful, including the flavonoids apigenin, luteolin, and quercetin, and the volatile oils including alpha-bisabolol and matricin.
These constituents all contribute to chamomile's antioxidant properties. Overall? Chamomile is calming and soothing.
Applied topically, chamomile is known to temporarily calm occasional red, dry, and irritated skin.
Chamomile contains numerous antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental stressors and reduce the appearance of aging.
Ancient Romans are said to have preferred baths with rose water, while Cleopatra used it in her various facemasks. Like most plants, roses have a lot of great benefits for the skin.
Here are just a few:
Rose helps minimize the appearance of pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
GENTLE AND MOISTURIZING
Rose is great for dry skin, as it helps increase its ability to hold onto hydration. It helps calm and soothe, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
SOURCE OF VITAMIN C
This vitamin is great for protecting the skin from environmental stressors, and preserving a youthful look to your complexion. Rose is a natural source of this potent vitamin.
Rose has some powerful antioxidants that can firm and tighten your appearance.
Aspen Bark extract acts as a natural preservative, but this ingredient also has skin conditioning properties. No surprise, as when you're dealing with natural ingredients, they often impart more than one benefit to your formula!
The main use of aspen bark extract in skin care is as a natural preservative. An excellent alternative to parabens, it protects your product from contamination. This helps to extend the shelf life of natural skin care products so you can use them until they're gone.
But aspen's benefits don't end there. Because of it's natural salicin content, it gives you a soothing feeling. The extract also has a conditioning property, helping to make skin smooth and soft to the touch.
Finally, the ingredient has a very low irritation potential, meaning that even those with sensitive skin can use it without worry. That's certainly something you can't say about chemical preservatives!

Prickly Pear Seed Oil...straight from Morocco!
But what does it do?...
If you are like us, when you hear Prickly Pear, you might start singing Bear Necessities from the Jungle Book... but in all seriousness you will be amazed at what this oil can do and does do for your skin and hair.
Psst... by the way.. we were really fascinated to discover that this is Nigella Lawson's skin secret...so quite literally, the proof is in the pudding!!
As well as using on her face, she uses on her hands and has reduced that "wrinkled-chiffon look", plus on the ends of her hair, dry elbows and cuticles.
