Black Locust Firming Concentrate

$36.00$86.00

Black Locust Firming Concentrate is a rich, nourishing product for mature and dry skin. the formula is modern, sophisticated, and noncomedogenic—not oily or heavy.  Earthwise Beauty created a flexible facial-care concentrate that improves a wide range of mature skin concerns; including wrinkles, loss of firmness, loss of elasticity, and roughness, all without causing clogged pores or sensitization.

Black Locust Firming Concentrate is a product of contrasts.  It contains extremely nutritious seed and fruit extracts and anti-acne plant-derived ingredients in very specific ratios, for an overall effect of noncomedogenic nurturing. This oil-based concentrate can be used by itself day or night, or it can be dosed with a few drops mixed into a favorite moisturizer or face oil.

For scent,  there is an added a touch of exotic feminine florals to the usual earthy-mossy palette of scents, with Indian golden champaca flower (perfumers’ gold), Nepalese rhododendron, and the unusual herbal scent of the herb babchi.

With Black Locust, you are venturing deeper into the territory of botanical ingredients that are being newly proven in scientific studies. Many of the ingredients are organic herbs Earthwise Beauty grows themselves or that are grown for them by organic farms, and  have for a long time focused on plants that have been used in skincare preparations since antiquity (such as calendula, chamomile, and frankincense). In Black Locust, you will find scientifically studied bakuchiol extract from the Ayurveda babchi herb, and two types of extracts from the wildflower white lupine.

The result is a thicker oil serum that delivers a wide spectrum of vitamins, essential fatty acids, and other phytonutrients for firmer, more elastic, and thicker skin.

The Brand

Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.
