Jasmine Hydrosol – Our rare artisan Jasmine hydrosol is truly a Slow Beauty ingredient, with delicate hand harvested fresh flowers combined with the slow process of a custom created hydro-distillation process. We have simply never experienced the beauty, purity, and authenticity of Jasmine until this ingredient.
Hibiscus – Our house-made Hibiscus macerations use fresh hibiscus fruit to ensure maximum vitamin C presence and potency. Hibiscus is exceptionally high in Vitamin C, but only when sourced fresh, making it incredibly rare. Our hibiscus is freshly harvested and sent directly to the Laurel Lab and hand processed the same day of harvest, and then macerated for several months prior to pressing for maximum potency.
Camu Camu – Our raw Camu Camu is one of the highest plant sources of vitamin C in the world. It has shown to support natural collagen production, brighten skin, and repair the cellular damage which leads to discoloration and loss of elasticity.
Sea Buckthorn – This concentrated superfood extract is made of the whole fruit and the seed, which makes it incredibly high in the entire range of essential fatty acids, vitamin C, and carotenes. It works to strengthen connective tissue and prevents its breakdown.
Rosehip – Rosehip has a unique chemical make-up that includes high Vitamin C content as well as Vitamin E and Vitamin A, making it an excellent brightener. It has been used for centuries and studied at length for its ability to reduce the appearance of scars, repair deep cellular damage, and minimize the appearance of fine lines by supporting collagen and connective tissue.
Gotu Kola – Gotu Kola is a plant that supports connective tissue and collagen by protecting it and encouraging new growth. Our Gotu Kola is the most vibrant in the world and grown exclusively for us by a nearby farm. It is a plant that we truly cannot do without in any “healthy aging” formula.
Astragalus – Astragalus has been closely studied for its ability to strengthen and repair telomeres, which are responsible for cellular aging. Telomere repair is essentially DNA repair. Astragalus is also anti-inflammatory, stimulates surface immunity, and supports connective tissue health.
Turmeric – This powerful whole plant extract is anti-inflammatory on multiple pathways and an immediate redness reducer and brightener.

Science: There is no debate that Vitamin C is beneficial to the skin. However, ascorbic acid doesn’t exist in solitary in the plant world. It only co-exists amongst many helpful co-factors. One of those helpful constituents is Flavonoids. Flavonoids serve many purposes, but the one that I find most fascinating is its job of metabolizing ascorbic acid after it has oxidized. An antioxidant is only an antioxidant until it lends its electron to a free radical, and then it too becomes a free radical. Once it is a free radical it will then create the same level of harm if it is not metabolized, which is what flavonoids help with. The presence of Vitamin E, Carotenoids and other beneficial nutrients also help to keep the Vitamin C stable. All of these nutrients work together to support each other, and are never found without each other when in the context of WHOLE plant medicine, as opposed to isolated components.
Ritual: This product immediately transports me to Hawaii, where my skin is plump and dewy with humidity. After cleansing your skin, close your eyes. Breathe deeply. Mist the Jasmine Elixir C onto your skin. What visuals come to you in this moment? Where are you in your mind’s eye? Imagine each tiny delicate flower being hand harvested for distillation. Imagine the journey each of these plants has taken to get to you. Breathe deeply, in gratitude for their journey. They are here to support you on your journey to vibrant healthy skin.
