From Vintage Tradition:
TOUCH THE SKY
A bright sun comes up, dewdrops glisten. The perfect morning, the perfect skin care.
Tighten and lift lax and fine-lined skin. Even skin tone, and diminish scars and blemishes.
Butterflies fly in the warmest glow, relishing in the beauty that comes with change.
MAKE A WISH
Look and feel better by boosting your skin’s health.
Reduce inflammation and puffiness while naturally soothing the effects of allergens.
Moonlight glimmers, and the skin is refreshed. Wishes can go far.
The ingredients in all other face serums are either chemically synthesized or chemically refined to the point that they are no longer in their whole-food matrix and beneficial to the skin. These chemical processes can also leave toxic residues in the product that aren’t even listed in the ingredients. (For just one example, see Harmful Ingredients of Modern Skin Care.) That means that if the ingredient looks like a chemical, it IS a chemical. Our face serums contain many of the same ingredients of much more expensive products but in their naturally occurring, whole-food form. Here’s a run-down of some of those ingredients:
Antioxidants: The #1 purpose of a face serum is to deliver antioxidants to your skin. The whole-food ingredients of our face serums are chock-full of antioxidants like the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, many fatty acids like conjugated linoleic acid, as well as beta-carotene and many other potent antioxidants.
Retinol/Retinoids: In all other face serums, these are synthetic forms of vitamin A which have been shown in studies to be toxic (see Harmful Ingredients of Modern Skin Care), but the naturally occurring, whole-food form of vitamin A is found abundantly in our face serum ingredients.
Botanicals: Instead of highly refined plant botanicals, our products provide whole botanicals in the form of the most pure essential oils available, therapeutic-grade and produced to the highest standards in the industry, steam-distilled from plants grown at the highest standards and not adulterated, extended, synthesized, or distilled using chemicals or high temperatures and pressure, with no middlemen, eliminating the possibility of adulteration. People who have had problems with other essential oils have found that they don’t have problems with the ones that we use.
Squalene: This antioxidant is a known constituent of fermented skate liver oil and helps the skin to deeply absorb the other nutrients in our face serums.
Collagen: Chemical analysis has shown that fermented cod liver oil contains naturally occurring collagen in a very bioavailable form.
Proteoglycans, Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate), and Melatonin: These are closely related to collagen and are often derived from fish and dairy, so, while there is no testing yet to prove it, it is very likely that these are also found in our face serums’ fish and dairy ingredients in their naturally occurring, whole-food forms.
