WHY WE LOVE THIS
Rose Water // An ingredient that needs little introduction, rose water is popular for good reason. It is a mild astringent, skin tonic, humectant, and regenerative hydrosol. Hydrosols are also naturally hydrating and have an ideal pH for the skin — unlike pure water which tends to be more alkaline.
Rock Rose Hydrosol // A floral water with amazing skin healing, scar fading, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. Rock rose is high in antioxidants that protect skin, neutralize and strengthen skin’s defense against free radicals.
Frankincense Hydrosol // This anti-inflammatory and antiseptic keeps skin calm and clean. It’s distilled in Vermont from frankincense resin that was sustainably wildcrafted in Somaliland where the trade is creating healthy economic opportunities for locals.
Hyaluronic Acid // Naturally found in our skin, sodium hyaluronic acid is one of the best humectants available. It can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. It boosts skin's moisture content, reduces inflammation, and this version is produced from the fermentation of glucose, so it is vegan.
Rooibos Tea // Also known as red tea and red bush, rooibos is caffeine-free tea leaf high in flavonoids such aspalathin, a free-radical scavenging antioxidant. It is also high in vitamin C and zinc, and may help prevent sun damage when applied topically. It is also antibacterial and soothing to irritated or compromised skin.

Pro tip: Toners have gotten a bad reputation over the years because many are filled with alcohol or are just expensive water that simply dries out the skin. This toner is not that! A few mists of this natural toner will provide your skin with nutrient-dense hydration that protects from oxidative stress and will leave skin feeling healthy and happy. This toning mist is a concentrated aqueous botanical infusion filled with a complex and unique variety of antioxidants, including several polyphenols and flavonoids. It also contains one of the most effective humectants available: hyaluronic acid.
A natural toner like this one is also a vital component of a natural skincare routine. Unlike conventional toners, which dry the skin out, this toner provides hydration and water-based nutrients that are not present in waterless balms and facial oils. Facial oils and balms offer concentrated nourishment, protection and skin softening properties, but they do not contain water-based elements that are essential for healthy, hydrated skin. Combining a toner like this Rose Hydrating Toner with you favorite oil or balm of choice will provide your skin with a complete array of nourishment.
