The first time I tried this Serum/Moisturizer I was excited by how soft my skin felt. I kept touching my skin surprised at how smooth my skin felt. A few hours later I took a shower and washed with our natural soap. My skin still felt softer than usual.


Why not just make a Serum? We tested Serums and were surprised how low the absorption rate was. They typically suspend anti-aging ingredients in propylene glycol or glycerin or alcohol. Mostly they sit on the skin's surface and eventualy evaporate.

So why a Serum/Moisturizer? Because our Moisturizers absorb deeply. Therefore pulling the valuable anti-aging ingredients deep into the skin.

Some of the best skin care ingredients come from Africa. Marula oil is extracted from the kernels (nuts) of the fruits of the Marula trees (Sclerocarya birrea), from the Anacardiaceae family.

Marula Oil: Marula oil is useful in cosmetics as it contains essential omega fatty acids such as linoleic, alpha‐linolenic and oleic acids. Marula oil is also naturally rich in tocopherols, sterols, and flavonoids. The flavonoids present (procianidine, galattotannin and catechin) deliver protective benefits and can help prevent reactive oxygen species and free radical damage that contributes to aging. The antioxidant content and high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids adds to the stability of the oil.

Most well known as the fruit that 'drives elephants mad' when dropped to the ground and lightly fermented, marula is a much-loved tree in the veld in Africa. It was a dietary mainstay in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia throughout ancient times.

Behind the scenes. I do all the formulating. I've been doing this since 1999. I work with a spreadsheet. It takes patience precise scales and a lot of trial and error. Many many batches before we find the right combination.

Skin's Structure: Yes as we age our collagen declines due to loss of lipids. Our moisturizers help stop this decline.


Reverse Osmosis Purified Water: Reverse Osmosis is the gold standard of water. Obviously we wanted fast absorption. Using a water with any hard water components or contaminants would slow down this absorption. Most companies use 'purified' water. Which may or may not be as good. Might seem like a minor point, but I saw a huge difference in the quality of our products when we switched from 'just purified' about 18 years ago. Now we only use R-O Water.

Marula Oil (Sclerocarya birrea) A full 15%. Most companies use a few drops and then they can legally call it after those few drops. Or use an extract or the juice. This is the real oil as a primary ingredient.

Hyaluronic acid serum. We use this ingredient correctly. Anything much over 100 degrees F and this ingredient is damaged. Most companies just add the powder during production during high heat. So even though it is on the label, it really isn't there. First we make a serum in pure reverse osmosis purified water. This takes a few days at a specific low temperature. It turns into a jell/serum. Then we add the serum at the end of the product mixing. When the temperature is below 100 degrees F. Any other way and the ingredient is ineffective. Very difficult for big manufacturers to do when they are mixing and pouring at high temperatures.

The magic of this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture; it's considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water!

This is important with regard to aging because one of the hallmarks of youthful skin is its moisture content.

As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and pliability. Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin's moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin's barrier; that is, the outer layers of your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper—all hallmarks of younger-looking skin! But, with hyaluronic acid, that's not all you get—there are many additional benefits beyond just a more youthful appearance.

We know that just about everything, from sun damage and acne to sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, so repairing skin's barrier with skin-identical ingredients, like hyaluronic acid (as detailed in this article), can go a long way toward fixing, or at least minimizing, those issues, which means it's helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture isn't an issue for oily skin, and it's gentle enough that it isn't a problem for sensitive skin.

Even better: Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation. Now that's what we call a multitasking anti-aging ingredient!

Bamboo Extract (Bambusa vulgaris (Bamboo) extract): Very eco-friendly ingredient. Ideal for sustainability claims in all-natural products. Multi-purpose ingredient offering various properties making it a valuable plant for a variety of cosmetics. Has good moisturizing properties. The bamboo stems are high in silica deposits which give smoothness to the skin.

Emulsifying Wax, a vegetable wax when used at the right temperature combines oils and water into a true fast absorbing moisturizer. This is not xanthan gum or algin or seaweed. Those are thickeners and make fake moisturizers.

Bisabolol: (Alpha-Bisabolol) Alpha Bisabolol Liposome PF offers a wide range of benefits. It is commonly used in cosmetic formulations for reducing wrinkles, dry skin to reduce flaking and restore suppleness. Formulators commonly use Alpha Bisabolol to take advantage of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Stearic Acid another vegetable wax that helps to make the moisturizer creamy.

Germall plus (diazolidinyl Urea, 3-Iodo-2-propylbutylcarbarmate) less than one percent. Vegetable derived. Proven Safe and effective. Paraben Free.

Natural Essential Oils Rose.

pH neutral (pH 7) Why is this important? Practically every skin care product on the market is acidic. We believe a lot of people are suffering with an overuse syndrome of too much acid. Nature loves neutral. Ask any experienced gardener how hard it is to grow vegetables in acidic soil. Your blood is neutral. Most of your body is. This whole story of the 'acid mantle' is unverifiable.

4 of 5 Less wrinkles but made me oily April 3, 2021
Reviewer: Kim  
I bought the night serum a few months ago and loved it so much I figured I'd give this a try.  I love the way it makes my skin feel and I saw noticeably less wrinkles however it made me terribly oily in the afternoons.  I will just use it at night and wash my face in the morning before I put on my makeup. The night serum is definitely my favorite out of the two though.
