A soothing, moisturizing, protective Serum which aides in the defense and repair of UV and elemental oxidative damage.

The Arizona Wolfberry Chia Serum was inspired by the joyful yet powerful sun and fully embraces Miraval Arizona’s surroundings and native plants that can be found throughout the diverse landscape. The Wolfberry Chia Serum is full of moisturizing and soothing unrefined lipids meant to protect and repair UV induced oxidative and inflammatory damage. Chia Seed, Prickly Pear Seed, and Jojoba are all raw and artisan cold-pressed to perfection, and all three plants can be found growing right on the Miraval Arizona property. Three-month-long infusions of flavonoid-rich Wolfberry, nourishing Mesquite, and deeply healing Creosote were mindfully harvested by Tucson, Arizona herbalist, Ash Ritter.

Red Raspberry Seed Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil support the other lipids in this formula with their assistance in UV and elemental protection, by their powerful free radical defense. Skin-loving and soothing plants like Lavender, Chamomile, and Calendula are included alongside the desert flora to calm and cool the skin after time spent in the sun. Wolfberry Chia Serum fully enhances its Arizona partner, the Honeysuckle Sage Elixir, with soothing, moisturizing, and elemental protective ingredients.

The Wolfberry Chia Serum is the Mindful Ritual Step 3 in this collection.

Wolfberry – A type of native Goji berry, harvested locally to Miraval Arizona. Wolfberry is full of hard working carotenoids and flavonoids that brighten, strengthen, and protect skin from oxidative stress.

Prickly Pear – Found abundantly throughout the Miraval Arizona property, this rich unrefined oil is soothing and anti-inflammatory. Prickly Pear stimulates new cell growth and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It is incredibly high in vitamin E and phytonutrients that repair free radical damage, soften, and regenerate skin.

Chia – Cultivated in Arizona and artisan-pressed by our favorite seed oil presser, Chia is high in a range of omegas and minerals. It is soothing, protective, supportive to our skin barrier, and plumps and firms the skin.

Jojoba – This Arizona organically farmed and pressed oil embraces desert life. It thrives in the heat and sun and helps our skin do the same. Jojoba is naturally rich in ceramides and is protective to our skin’s natural lipid barrier.

Desert Willow – Harvested locally to Miraval Arizona, this gentle and calming plant ally helps to strengthen connective tissue. Desert Willow’s soft pink flowers and strong leaves help to reduce redness and inflammation to the skin.

*Wildcrafting is not a term that you see used often at Laurel Skin. In the commercial beauty and health industries wildcrafting or wild-harvesting can put a strain on the environment, animal habitats, and Indigenous communities. Laurel Skin does not condone wildcrafting plants on Indigenous lands unless it only and directly financially supports the Indigenous folks doing the harvesting. Laurel Skin does not condone any scale of wildcrafting that may bring harm to the micro-ecosystems of a particular area. This is especially seen in the essential oil and supplement industries, and we genuinely wish for that type of wildcrafting to come to an end. That said, some of the herbs (not essential oils) for the collection made exclusively for Miraval were ethically and mindfully wildcrafted in small and limited amounts by herbalists local to their regions. The amount we could harvest actually determined how much product we were able to create, and that is weather and yield dependent. Especially with the desert plants, we wanted to utilize these plants which were native and abundant to the desert region. These medicinal plants are not farmed or cultivated. None of these plants were harvested on Indigenous lands, and all were harvested on privately or publicly owned lands where each plant is abundant or even invasive and not at all at-risk. This responsibility is something Laurel personally takes very seriously, and we do not encourage wildcrafting for those who do not have this level of awareness around this global sourcing concern.

Put 4 drops onto fingertips and press onto clean face and neck. Apply Elixir first for hydration, followed by Serum and then Balm. This product works as a treatment serum, a moisturizer, and it strengthens your skin’s response to the sun.

Ritual Step 3 – After applying the Honeysuckle Sage Elixir, massage 4 drops of Serum into damp skin. Allow the soothing Lavender and Chamomile to calm your skin and spirit. Follow with the Tulsi Rose Balm.

Use within 6 months of opening and within 18 months of the manufacture date, found on the bottom of the bottle.

Arizona Sourcing Story:

“After I spent some time at Miraval Arizona getting to know the plants on property, I still felt I needed to get to know desert plant medicine better before I could take on this formula. Working with herbalist Ash Ritter in Tucson was a huge help, but I still wanted to know these desert plants more intimately myself. I decided to rent a cabin in the Joshua Tree desert for two months, where I surrounded myself with these plants. Creosote, Juniper, Desert Willow, Chia, Jojoba, Prickly Pear, Pinyon and Mesquite were just a few of the plants that I had the privilege to sit with on a daily basis. These plants took hold in my heart so deeply and so completely that I let go of my dream of stewarding land in Northern California, and I bought land to steward in the desert instead. My time with these plants and developing these products deeply changed my life. The medicine of the desert is so powerful, and I’m honored to share my heart with you in this way.”
