Sun Serum: Phyto Defense + Repair is a concentrated moisturizer, treatment serum, and elemental defense oil that addresses the symptoms that come with overexposure to the sun. By combining the most current botanical research on phytonutrients with centuries-old plant traditions, this repairing serum delivers a firmer more supple appearance, a brighter more even tone, and a visible reduction in irritation and discoloration.
Our Sun Serum is ideally applied both before and after time spent in the sun, as it features whole plant extracts that address both prevention and repair through the use of antioxidant-dense and anti-inflammatory botanicals. Whole plants rich in carotenoids, resveratrol, flavonoids, polyphenols, and essential fatty acids are blended mindfully to help prevent UV damage. This Serum’s reported repairing abilities include quick recovery from sunburn to a slow and steady brightening of years of chronic sun damage. Tiny, sun-loving Scarlet Pimpernel flower has been used historically for sun-kissed skin, along with healing, resinous Calendula. Licorice Root and Bilberry have both been researched extensively for brightening-up long term sun-induced hyperpigmentation. While Licorice Root reduces inflammation and directly acts to reduce melanin production, Bilberry flavonoids prevent oxidation and work to strengthen and protect. Nutrient dense fruit and seed oils from Sea Buckthorn, Rosehip, and Red Grape provide elemental defense with EFAs, carotenoids, and resveratrol. Soothing plants Chamomile and Marshmallow Root soften and provide relief to immediate irritation and redness, while Gotu Kola and Carrot Seed firm connective tissue over time. Oils like our Red Raspberry and Jojoba are all raw and unrefined, offering additional antioxidant defense against UV induced oxidation.
After applying Elixir first for hydration, then apply 3-5 drops of Serum into fingertips and press into wet face and neck. Follow with Balm, if desired. This product works as a treatment serum, a moisturizer, and it strengthens your skin’s response to the sun and environmental elements.
Use within 6 months of opening and by the recommended use-by date, which is found on the bottom of the bottle. Store this product in a cool, dry and dark place.
