Red and green are complementary colors, being directly opposite each other on the color wheel. This super nourishing, green tinted concealer was created to tone down the redness from inflammation in the skin such as broken capillaries, eczema, rosacea, and to treat + soothe discomfort while camouflaging acne breakouts. Blended with the perfect amount of anti inflammatory (non nano) zinc oxide for added coverage + fair trade cacao for additional mineral content, this little balm can even out and treat even the most problematic or sensitive skin. This, as with all of our balms, is made in micro batches and holds up to even the most humid, tropical conditions.
A Few Key Ingredients:
Prickly Pear - Having 150% more vitamin E than argan oil, prickly pear is a super antioxidant, fighting free radicals and increasing cell renewal. It also has vitamin K, which can lighten under eye circles. Holding a high percentage in unsaturated fatty acids, prickly pear absorb easily into the skin without leaving any greasy residue behind. The fatty acids help moisturize while supporting the collagen production, giving the appearance of lifted and glowy skin.
Blue Tansy - From very sensitive skin to serious acne or severe dryness, blue tansy treats a number of diverse needs. As part of the chamomile family, blue tansy is full of calming soothing benefits, very effective at treating conditions conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and other inflammatory issues. It's beautiful blue color, derived from the azulene, is what naturally gives this balm its green, camouflaging hue.
Evening primrose - Having high concentrations of Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), an omega 6 fatty acid, as well as skin loving Oleic & Palmitic acids, evening primrose is very effective in reducing the appearance of aging, such as premature wrinkles, fine lines, and achieving a moisturized, clear, brightened complexion.
Astaxanthin - Rated as containing the highest antioxidant content (ORAC scale) of any known super "food", astaxanthin has incredible UV-blocking properties, helping to assist the skin in protecting itself against sun-related damage. In clinical studies, astaxanthin has been shown to increase skin's moisture, moisture retention, and elasticity, as well as promote smoothness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles.
Mango Butter - Because it’s rich in vitamin C, mango butter can help encourage a smooth, plump skin texture and promotes a firmer appearance. It's also high in vitamin A, the "skin vitamin", encouraging a revitalized, glowing complexion and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increasing the skin’s overall youthful look. Mango butter is deeply moisturizing, helping to soothe dry patches, flakiness, and is gentle for sensitive skin. We also love it for being one of the most sustainable butters on the planet due to the number of mango trees all over the world. Our goal is to produce our own mango butter from our numerous trees while also working in higher yields with farmers here in Hawaii!
Turmeric - Used in beauty rituals for millennia, several recent studies have shown the compounds found in turmeric aid in skin regeneration in a variety of respects, from boosting collagen production, diminishing psoriasis and protecting against free radicals. Rich in curcumin, a natural active ingredient that promotes the healing and brightening of the skin, turmeric is also highly revered for its anti inflammatory benefits and can aid in treating dark under eye circles and puffiness.
Sea Buckthorn - Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, sea buckthorn is helpful for inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, and even acne. This cherished “super fruit” is rich in antioxidants which protect from free radicals that can cause skin damage and cancer. We also love it for her rich color which helps to brighten even the darkest of under eye circles.
