            Just wanted to let you all know how much I love your new Vitamin A moisturizer. I just got a sample this week and am already wishing I had more! I’ve been using it in the morning under your mineral foundation and it’s just amazing. Absorbs well and makes my sensitive skin feel wonderful. Thanks for making another fabulous anti aging product!


            Retinol encourages skin cell turnover ; this new skin is delicate and should not be exposed to the sun. That is why these ingredients should only be found in products intended for night use. Vitamin A derivatives, including retinol, rapidly break down when exposed to the sun. Retinol is known for helping to fight acne, reduce wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and promote cellular turnover. Retinol is also known for evening out skin tone and increasing blood flow to the skin.

            Serum/Moisturizer. Except this oil has Retinol anti-aging qualities just like the high end Retinol Moisturizers, but without the horrible other ingredients.

            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 eventually evaporate.

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

            Why not use the oil straight? Our skin is mostly water. Oils and water do not mix. Although some benefits come from using it directly. Deep results happen when made into a true moisturizer. Plus when you buy the oil there is no way to know if what you're buying is what is on the label. Often resellers mix lower cost oils in to make money.

            The Amazon Rain Forest contains thousands of species of plants that have had little to no testing. Recently Colombian Cacay Oil has come to be known as the next big thing in skin care. This is due to the unusual combination of components of this oil. It is high in Vitamins A and E.

            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 19 years ago. Now we only use R-O Water.

            Brazilian Buriti Oil
            (Mauritia flexuosa) A full 15%. Most companies use a few drops and then they can legally call it after those few drops. This is the real certified oil as a primary ingredient.

            Hyaluronic acid serum. We use this ingredient correctly. Anything much over 100 degrees F and this ingredient is destroyed. 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. This is 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 Buritipliability. 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.

            Optiphen Preservative.

            Natural Essential Oils Tiare

            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.

5 of 5 So far, wonderful! October 11, 2022
Reviewer: Caitlin D. from Austin, TX United States  
I am a couple of weeks in to my first jar of this retinol moisturizer, and so far, I love it!  Waking up the next day after my first night of use, I felt like my face seemed brighter and smoother!  I am battling fine lines, blackheads, and occasional breakouts, and this seems to be helping all of those rather quickly--I don't think it's my imagination!  I've tried many products, and I don't ever have a "wow" moment like I did and continue to do with this one.  I only hope it will keep improving things the longer I use it!  I'm also hoping it will work on some light age discoloration and acne scarring, which I figure will take some time.  Fingers crossed!  This also absorbs well and feels good on--feels moisturizing and not greasy.  Thanks for making this!

4 of 5 Vitamin A September 1, 2022
Reviewer: Sandra Raines from Bear Creek, NC United States  
I haven't used this long enough to give an honest review, I think it take products awhile to show up its results.  Goes on good and absorbs well. We'll see!

5 of 5 A lovely product July 28, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This moisturizer yields plumper, more toned skin when I put it on at night and wake up in the morning. It's light and smells delightful and helps my 30-something skin. Will buy again.
