Sample - Black Locust Firming Concentrate

Description +


Powerful plant-extract serum for mature skin

Black Locust is a flexible, noncomedogenic concentrate that was designed especially for mature and dry skin. This rich, nourishing concentrate can improve a wide range of mature skin concerns, including wrinkles, loss of firmness, loss of elasticity, and roughness, all without causing clogged pores or sensitization. The oil-based formula is filled with nourishing botanical ingredients that deliver a broad spectrum of vitamins, essential fatty acids, and other phytonutrients for firmer, thicker, more youthful skin.

Skincare Benefits:

  • Phytonutrient-rich ingredients provide a long-term improvement in the skin’s elasticity, firmness, and thickness, not just a temporary lift.

  • Bakuchiol, extracted from babchi herb seeds, works like a retinol to diminish wrinkles, reduce acne and inflammation, increase elasticity, and stimulate the production of healthy new collagen, all without side effects and without the risk of photosensitization.  Formula contains Bakuchiol 1% concentration, which has been shown to improve aging skin in several categories (wrinkles, roughness, dryness, uneven skin tone, lower elasticity, etc.), and to cause a significant (57%) improvement in acne in seven weeks. Unlike potentially-damaging retinol, however, bakuchiol does not cause side effects and it can be used for the daytime without the risk of photosensitization.

  • Lupine seed extract improves the appearance of wrinkles, firms the skin, and improves elasticity and sagging facial contour.

  • Seabuckthorn berry is a superfood for the skin that can help improve eczema, psoriasis, and acne as well as help the skin recover a healthy, even coloring.

  • Calendula softens the skin and helps to diminish stubborn dryness and roughness; açai berry oil reduces acne and soothes the skin, and kalahari melon seed oil hydrates dry skin and can also reduce acne.

  • Açai berry is a very light oil, derived in this case from whole açai berries; it has superior acne-reducing and skin-soothing benefits. 

  • Kalahari melon seed oil is great for dehydrated or dehydration-prone skin. Many acne-prone skin types thrive on this oil as well.

Skin Type Recommendations: ​Mature, wrinkled, sagging, with low elasticity, sensitive, and dry to very dry; also for eczema and psoriasis.

Color and Texture:​  This is a thicker dry oil; its color is amber orange with hints of mossy green, but the concentrate is nonstaining.

Scent: Herbal babchi and exotic floral champaca combine with green, fruity-floral rhododendron flower and a grounding backnote of sweet beans and buttery nuts from the lupine seeds.

Size: Sample
