This process of breaking down our skin proteins is called oxidative stress or oxidation, and our skin becomes more prone to wrinkles, sagging, stretch marks, and scars.

Youth is a precious fleeting condition which is not truly appreciated until it is gone. Helichrysum, a plant granted the common name of Immortelle or Everlasting, is both the inspiration for this mist and a key ingredient. Its flowers dry in a perfect eternal state. Highly prized in aromatherapy is the essential oil of this plant, and research shows it to be regenerative. It’s known for stimulating healthy cell growth and revitalizing damaged skin tissue. This plant is highly antioxidant and one of our absolute favorite ingredients for the skin.

Helichrysum originally comes from the Mediterranean. This plant used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years, especially in countries like Italy, Spain, Turkey, Portugal, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. This beautiful plant brings with it some very active antioxidant properties. Why is this so important? I’m glad you asked.

Every day we are exposed to a tremendous amount of free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules that create oxidative stress and damage cells, proteins, and DNA). The amount of damage caused by the environment, EMF’s and blue light-emitting from computers and electronic devices is enough to stress anybody out, and finding ways to minimize the impact and subsequent damage is super important.
