Essential Oil Free


An elevated approach to balance the complexion, providing concentrated, rich hydration in a lightweight, silky, cooling gel while reconditioning the microbiome for clear, comfortable skin.

Skincare Benefits:

- Builds resilience and rejuvenates the skin by dispersing the rich minerals and nutrients from land and sea based botanicals.

- Concentrated hydration to drench parched skin.  Snow mushroom paired with sea kelp lends a stronger, more flexible film than hyaluronic acid, creating a second-skin hydration barrier.  Skin is left feeling fresh and bouncy.

- Postbiotic and prebiotics calm reactivity through strengthening the microbiome, which encourages the skin to repair itself.

- Full spectrum plant extracts of licorice, peony, milk thistle, oats, green tea, and echinacea soothe, diminish scarring, brighten, and protect against oxidative damage.

- Improves skin clarity.

Ingredient Benefits:

+ Post-biotics, the byproducts of probiotic fermentation aid in promoting skin clarity. Compounds, such as short-chain fatty acids and peptides, can support a balanced skin microbiome, contributing to a healthier complexion and reduced blemishes.  Additionally, they encourage hydration, improve elasticity, and reduce reactivity.

+ Snow Mushroom (Tremella fuciformis) offers a unique polysaccharide composition. Its branched β-glucans create a 3D network capable of holding nearly 500 times its weight in water. This exceptional water-binding ability ensures profound hydration to plump skin cells. Furthermore, it contains antioxidants that help combat free radicals, promoting skin health and radiance.

+ Fermented Sea kelp is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants; it helps hydrate and strengthen the skin's defenses.

+ Licorice is a skin-brightening champion, thanks to its active component, glabridin. This natural compound inhibits pigmentation, reducing dark spots and promoting a more even skin tone. Licorice is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, making it a gentle yet effective skincare ally.

+ Peony soothes the skin and promotes elasticity. Paeoniflorin, a bioactive compound, has anti-inflammatory effects, making it beneficial for reducing redness and irritation.

+ Milk thistle is a cellular waste removal powerhouse, and its active component, silymarin, supports the skin's natural clarification process. Rich in antioxidants, it provides a shield against environmental stressors, promoting a refreshed and revitalized complexion.

+ Green Tea is packed with antioxidants, particularly catechins like epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). These compounds fight signs of damage, protecting the skin from environmental stressors.

+ Echinacea invigorates the skin with its regenerative properties. Active compounds, including polysaccharides, flavonoids, and alkamides, possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Helping to soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and protect against environmental stressors. Echinacea may also support collagen production, contributing to skin elasticity.

+ Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) Root is a natural hydrator that drenches your skin with moisture, leaving it soft and supple, while also soothing irritation.  Abundant polysaccharides form a protective layer on the skin, sealing in hydration. Phenolic compounds like quercetin offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

+ Oats offer tender care for dry and sensitive skin. Beta-glucans in oats provide hydration and soothe irritation.

+ Squalane acts as a protective barrier and is noted to soften the appearance of fine lines. It absorbs quickly to provide a velvety finish. 

+ Hydrosols of Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir, Lavender, St. John's Wort, and Blue Cornflower, collectively calm the senses and the skin; provides a vessel for the clarifying and soothing properties of the formula as a whole.

Has a bright and refreshing scent.  Hydrosols of Douglas fir, ponderosa pine and lavender are the most noted.

Suitable for most skin types including sensitive. Especially beneficial to breakout prone, dehydrated skin that has excess to adeqaute oil production.

    I had an intense eczema/allergic/hives breakout recently and most of my usually-loved products are too harsh for my face right now. Most things with essential oil/natural scents are too harsh and sting.

    I purchased this hoping it would be well tolerated and it is! It is one of the things I can put on my face and it feels somewhat cooling and very soothing. I like mixing it with other oils. Nice product..

    You really can't go wrong...

    Pretty much anything from Live Botanical is going to be lovely. I'm a lover of the Ambient Moisture Liquid as a first layer of moisture in my morning & evening skincare routine. But I was curious about this product because it seemed similar. I'm not really sure if I like it more than the AML, but it is a fabulous product! I don't know if there is actually jasmine in it, but that is what I smell when I apply it. I do think my skin has gotten clearer since using this product, although I don't really have breakout-prone skin. I really enjoy this type of product as a first layer in my skincare because I have very dry skin and it feels like a moisturizer/hydrating essence/ serum in one. It's good stuff...

    The product your skin is been missing!!!

    I originally ordered the travel size to give it a try and see how it worked for my dry skin and let me tell you it was magical! I immediately ordered two full size bottles because I want to bathe in it! The texture is gel like and applies beautifully on the skin! Plus the scent is heavenly! Must have!!!
