Cottonwood Anti-Aging Oil
Cottonwood buds contain rich supplies of salicin, a naturally-occurring plant constituent that increases gene expressions associated with youthful skin structure, pigmentation, and hydration. This Cottonwood bud oil has a scent reminiscent of autumn leaves and gives skin a lustrous matte glow.
Apply to face & neck after cleansing to keep skin plump, glowing, and youthful.
We believe in the power of whole, fresh ingredients and use an ancient, handmade technique to infuse whole Cottonwood buds into freshly-pressed Olive oil. This gentle and powerful process produces rich oils with a broad spectrum of healing plant constituents and subtle, dynamic aromas that delight the senses and deeply nourish even the most sensitive of skin.
From Cleopatra to Jennifer Lopez, Olive oil has long been used as a natural beauty powerhouse to keep skin plump, glowing, and youthful. Its rich sources of squalene deeply moisturize skin while phytosterols activate microcirculation and improve quality and evenness of complexion. Our Olive oil is grown, hand-picked, and pressed on a small, organic farm in Ojai, California.
Cottonwood buds contain rich supplies of salicin, a naturally-occurring plant constituent that increases gene expressions associated with youthful skin structure, pigmentation, and hydration. Bees value Cottonwood buds and collect the resin to make Propolis, a powerful antimicrobial agent which protects the hive from disease. Our Cottonwood buds are gathered by hand from buds that naturally fall to the ground. This wildcrafting practice leaves buds on the tree, which allows the tree to put out new growth in the spring and provide resources to the greater ecosystem.
Adding a splash of alcohol to the Calendula flowers before infusing them into oil opens up the plant cell membranes and makes for a deeper, richer profile of healing constituents while still being gentle on even the most sensitive of skin. Our cane alcohol is made from organic cane and distilled by artisans in Denver, Colorado.
