Massage a few drops of this rose-alicious oil into the skin after cleansing and toning.

If you prefer, you can also blend the serum with one of our toners in your palm to create an emulsion, and then massage the emulsion into the skin. This serum works as both a serum and moisturizer so there is no need to follow with a moisturizer.
Rosehip oil // This unique oil is extremely high in essential fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6 and 9 which provide regenerative properties, as well as trans-retinoic acid (a cousin of vitamin A) which helps prevent premature aging. This oil absorbs into the skin quickly and is excellent for dry skin. It is known to help fade scars, help repair damaged tissue, increase cell turnover, and for its regenerative properties.

CoQ10 // A naturally occurring substance that is present in human cells. It protects the cell and is a component of our body's production of energy. As we age, our body produces less CoQ10 which in turn decreases collagen production and the skin's ability to regenerate itself. Studies have shown that topically applied CoQ10 may have an effect on the appearance of wrinkles, reduce UV damage, stimulate collagen production, and help prevent skin damage. CoQ10 benefits also include antioxidants and anti-inflammatory effects. Our CoQ10 is vegan and non-GMO.

Rose absolute // 60 000 roses must be harvested and distilled to create 1 fl oz of rose essential oil. Rose is a mild astringent, antibacterial, a skin tonic, humectant, and has anti-aging and regenerative properties. The aroma is soothing to the heart and encourages feelings of self-love.

Pomegranate oil // Useful for cell regeneration, anti-aging, and deep nourishment. Pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, and unique components such as ellagic acid which helps prevent UV damage and puninic acid (omega-5) which helps reduce skin inflammation and prevents moisture loss. Pomegranate oil has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin to nourish, fight free radicals that cause aging and may also help improve the skin's texture.

Carrot seed oil // This oil is cold pressed from the seed of the plant commonly known as "Queen Ann's Lace". This oil is known for its skin healing abilities and rejuvenating effects. There are studies that show that a main component, carotol, may help regenerate the skin.

Jojoba Oil Infusion // Jojoba oil is naturally high in vitamin E and is chemically close to our skin's sebum. We infuse this oil with skin healing flowers such as chamomile and calendula to create a deeply nourishing oil that soothes and promotes regeneration.

Lovely

I've had my eye on this product for a while, but was waiting to run out of my last face oil before purchasing something new. When I initially got it, I was a bit hesitant that it said it was for dry and mature skin - I'm only 27! However, I live in a very dry climate and this stuff really hits the spot. While darker in color and thicker than expected, it absorbs really well into the skin and doesn't leave a residue. The rose scent is light and comforting and not too overpowering. I've noticed a difference in my skin not just in softness, but in how much acne I get now. Overall a lovely little serum.

Love the scent it's not overpowering at all.

It leaves my skin feeling so soft without an oily residue. A repurchase indeed.

Thank you for formulating a beautiful serum.

Mixed Bag

I absolutely love the ethics and the company and how it's all natural. The serum that I was using prior was Rose D'orient by decleor. It was a little richer and thicker and had a very light rose scent. With Apoterra I feel like I need to use a lot more to feel as hydrated.

Amazing!

I use this as my daily daytime serum and under makeup when I wear it. While I am out and about I like it to do it’s thing because I normally wear treatment serums at night and because makeup can be a skin stressor I like to pamper it before applying.

This serum is amazing! Absorbs quickly, deeply nourishes, is not greasy or sticky, is heavy enough to feel substantial when applying but not too thick or like you’ve applied too much product. I like to work it down into my neck, too!
