SCIENCE behind our SERUM

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.  The information presented here is not intended to treat, prevent, cure, or diagnose any disease.

 

Background:

Your skin & hair continuously secrete a nourishing substance (called sebum) that imparts strength & elasticity, protects from moisture-loss, and acts as a physical barrier to irritating bacteria, toxins, and other inflammatory agents.  When the body is out of balance, an exaggerated inflammatory response can cause the over- or under-production of sebum, which may be expressed as acne, redness, dryness, or diminished strength & elasticity.

Our Serum acts as a topcoat for your skin & hair that seals in moisture, returns strength & elasticity, and acts as a physical barrier to keep the nasty stuff out.  It is made with a very specific ratio of over 50% organic jojoba oil (which is not actually a true oil but rather a liquid wax) and organic coconut oil that allows deep penetration and a non-greasy finish. 

Jojoba oil is chemically very similar to human sebum and has an exceptional oxidative stability, as does coconut oil.  This means they do not easily go rancid or create harmful oxidants.  Coconut oil also possesses natural antibacterial activity and, due to its medium chain fatty acids, can be impressively deep-penetrating when properly paired with jojoba oil.

The organic marshmallow root provides a multitude of anti-inflammatory compounds to help return your body to balance.  Our Serum contains a potent extract of organic marshmallow root that helps soothe irritated skin follicles and guides them back to a harmonious rate of sebum production.

Unlike synthetic anti-inflammatory drugs, marshmallow root is unique in that it cannot be over-used, even with repeated use, and it will not inhibit an appropriate immune response from your body. Uniquely, marshmallow root is one of the only medicinal herbs in the world that has no contraindications.

As it turns out, it only takes 3 ingredients to make soft & happy skin & hair.  Our Serum is a proof-of-concept.
