Massage a few drops of this nutrient-dense 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.

Note: Sea buckthorn oil is a magical oil, but it’s deep orange hue can stain fabrics. We recommend letting this oil sink in for at least 15 minutes before going to bed or face planting on a pillow ;) Don’t worry, this oil will not stain the skin. Although we recommend using this treatment at night because of its orange hue, it is perfectly safe to use during the day if you choose.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil // Also known as barberry fig oil, this luxurious and nutrient-dense super oil has a higher vitamin E (a youth preserving antioxidant) content than any other oil on the market. This oil also contains vitamin K (which has shown to brighten the skin), belatains (a super-antioxidant), and essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid (omega-6). Prickly pear oil is easily absorbed into the skin, protects against free radicals, refines the skin's texture, helps prevent premature aging, provides nutrients, and brightens a complexion.

Sea Buckthorn Oil // This cold pressed oil has a deep amber color because of its rich content of the anti-oxidant beta-carotene (it contains more than pumpkin!). It is also loaded with skin-loving/free radical fighting compounds such as vitamin A, C, E, fatty acids such as Omega 3, 6, 9, the very rare Omega 7, phytosterols, and flavonoids. Some research has shown that sea buckthorn can help reduce sebum production, reduce the occurrence of break outs, speed up healing, and promote healthy skin.

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.

Sugar Extract // Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, a superior exfoliant that helps slough away dead skin cells to help reveal a brighter, more youthful complexion.

Blue Chamomile essential oil // Also known as German chamomile, this blue essential oil is one of the most powerful healing oils for the skin. Close in kin to blue tansy, aka Moroccan chamomile, this oil is high in flavonoids, terpenoids, oxides, and azulenes (chamazulene is what gives the essential oil its beautiful blue color). It has antioxidant, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and powerful skin healing effects. A great addition to skincare products for problematic skin.

Immortelle essential oil // Helichrysum, also known as immortelle or everlasting, is a small yellow flower with amazing healing and regenerative properties. It gets its name from the fact that the blooms never wilt! The essential oil is a powerful healer and has cell regenerative properties. Used in synergy with blue chamomile, it creates a powerhouse skin healing combo, great for diminishing redness and speeding the healing of blemishes. This is a wonderful anti-aging and healing ingredient.

Tamanu oil // Pressed from the nut of the Ati tree and a gorgeous green color, this exotic oil has cicatrisant, antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This oil is especially useful for healing acne and skin irritations.

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.

Great replacement for a more expensive oil...

I had been using True Botanicals Clear oil for the last few months but wanted to switch to something cheaper (man, does that stuff break the bank...). Apoterra’s clarifying treatment is less than half the cost, and seems to be a better fit for my skin! I love the scent of this line, too. I usually mix about three drops with two of rosehip oil every night before bed, and it feels really nice and moisturizing. I’m giving it four stars because while I like it, I haven’t noticed any major changes in clearing up my acne or scars.

Used with Neroli toner: treated dry skin

The scent of this took a few days for me to get used to; I wasn’t used to my beauty products smelling so NATURAL. Ha! Now I realize the scent reminds me of a sage plant that grows near my home and it’s soothing. I spray the Neroli toner on in the morning and wipe with a cotton pad, then follow with this night oil; at night I wash with the pumpkin soap bar, spray the toner and follow with the night oil.

For the first week of using this with the neroli toner my face looked pretty good, but this week I think I’ve been touching my face too much because I’m starting to break out again. Hopefully if I’m more conscious of my hands, my face will be nice again...

One GREAT thing that has come about: my face used to have extremely dry spots and now they’re completely gone!!! That’s a win in my book.

Skin saver!

I thought my main skin concern was dryness, until I took the skin quiz and realised the effect the humid climate I live in was having on my skin congestion! This little beauty has whipped my skin back into shape, I'm so grateful!
