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.

Love this!

I use the Night Clarifying Treatment during the day as my moisturizer. I love that it's not too heavy or greasy, and it gives my skin a beautiful glow. I have struggled with acne for over 27 years, and my skin is beautiful, healthy, and clear now. My skin care regime includes this and the Neroli Clarifying Mist, Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud, and Herbal Detoxifying Steam as part of my arsenal against acne. These products are amazing! Highly recommend!!

Was recommended for my skin type... didn’t love. Drying.

I was recommended this oil when I took the skin quiz. I live in Arizona where it’s very dry, but I used to (and still sometimes) have acne prone skin and scars from it. This oil was very drying and I don’t recommend it unless your big concern is oily skin. It dried out skin around my eyes which kind of upset me. It was one of the pricier oils also, so I am a little upset about this one. I also did not love the smell.

Reply from Apoterra Skincare

HI Katie! I am so sorry to hear you didn't love the Night Clarifying Treatment! It is a wonderful oil for breakout prone skin but should be combined with a more nourishing oil such as our Night Regenerative Balm or Rose Nourishing Serum if dryness is an issue. Our favorite combo for dry/combo acne prone skin is to use the Night Clarifying Treatment during the day and the Night Balm at night. For best results pair with the Neroli Clarifying Toner. Please let us know if you would like to try pairing the Night Clarifying Treatment with those products.

My Skin Never Looked Better!!

I LOVE this stuff!!! I use it in conjunction with the entire clarify line and have had a complete transformation of my skin!!! I usually suffer with pretty bad acne and try all sorts of drying and damaging acne products. This is the first time I've used an oil on my skin (I was always scared to put oil on my face because I thought it would make me more oily and = more acne) and it has worked a miracle!! This product smells really good and REALLY hydrates my face and leaves it glowing before bed!! I've been using this product for 3 months now and have only used up about a quarter of the bottle!! You only need a tiny amount!! I cannot say enough good things about this product and the entire clarify line!! It can be pricey to by products that are natural and good for your skin but it is 100% WORTH THE INVESTMENT!!! They do last a long time and the results are literally unbelievable!! I have not had a breakout in the entire 3 months that I've been using the clarify line!!!! It also feels really nice to have a routine and use products that I love, getting my skin ready for bed has never felt more relaxing!
