Yasuni Face Balm is based on fruit oils that have particularly high and wide-ranging phytonutrient levels and enzymatic action. This balm works similarly to a retinol on the skin, exfoliating and resurfacing it, but with none of the irritation, redness, or peeling often caused by actual retinol products. It is also an ideal balm for healing acne and reducing blackheads and oil production.

Yasuni is, one step lighter than even the Tigress face balm. The star feature of this balm is its enzymatic mild exfoliation from fruit oils alone. The açai oil exfoliates and resurfaces the skin similarly to a retinol product, but being a fruit oil, it doesn't overexfoliate or cause redness or intense peeling. Even more retinol-like action is supplied by the buriti oil, which is exceptionally high in betacarotenes. The enzymes keep sebum oil production in check, so oily skin types become more balanced and are not shiny at the end of the day, and the appearance of blackheads is greatly reduced over time. 

The acne sufferer's dream come true: this very light, extract-like oil heals and dries up acne due to its enzymes and high vitamin C content, and unlike most other effective acne ingredients, it is nonirritating. The açai oil's anti-acne action is supported by the astringent kokum butter (cold extracted from mangosteen kernels), which helps t minimize pores, speed healing of acne breakouts, and promote skin firmness.

Dry skin types can use Yasuni as an overnight enzymatic exfoliator or as their light summer "moisturizer."

The ingredients that make a difference

ACAI

The fatty acids in acai berries promote collagen production, leaving skin glowing. Combine that with their levels of copper, which hydrates and firms the skin.

RASPBERRY

Raspberry oil can moisturize and soften skin, as well as reduce flares and irritation like itching, swelling, and redness.

BACURI

Bacuri butter reduces inflammation and redness. It's also effective at reducing rashes, acne, hyper-pigmentation and scarring.

Ava's Tips

Yasuni may be blended with Farizad's Veil Sun Reflector to add sun protection and to mattify the skin. Yasuni may also be blended with a few drops of a facial oil of choice for a looser, juicier balm.

"I've been using this for a while and it goes a long way. Doesn't feel heavy either."
