What’s In the Bottle and Why? (3-min read)

Dearest friends of Sage Abbey,

Goodness Face Elixiris my labor of love.  I say that “a piece of my heart is in every bottle,” because the elixir features what I loved as a child, spending summers by the pristine blue Adriatic Sea or running in the meadows of awe-inspiring Dinaric Alps.  I fondly remember picking ripe pomegranates off those coastal trees.  I vividly recall enjoying red, delicious raspberries freshly plucked off the mountain bushes.  So many wonderful memories are hidden behind that intoxicating scent of immortelle and citrus trees swaying in the coastal breeze.  I am delighted to share the same natural goodness with you through each carefully selected, responsibly sourced, and scientifically proven ingredient:

Golden Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) 100% pure, first-press and unrefined, nutrient rich in vitamin E, B-complex, copper, zinc, selenium, chromium & iodine gives jojoba powerful soothing, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties.  With skin barrier restorative benefits for all skin types, this amazing wax ester readily absorbs, doesn’t clog pores and balances skin’s natural oil production

Pomegranate seed (Punica granatum) oil – cold pressed, rich in omega-5 (punicic) acid, vitamins K, C and B6, folate, potassium, and phosphorus. Incredibly nourishing, moisturizing and softening, promotes skin regeneration and renewal.  Vitamins in this oil revitalize skin, helping to even skin tone and reduce signs of aging.

Red raspberry seed (Rubus idaeus) oil – cold pressed, high antioxidant content of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, excellent free radical scavenger, and rich source of Vitamin A.  With superb anti-inflammatory, hydrating and moisturizing properties, it is specifically beneficial in restoring skin’s radiance after repeated sun exposure and fighting wrinkle formation.

Rosehip seed (Rosa mosqueta) oil cold pressed, high antioxidant content and natural form of Vitamin A revitalize the skin, improving its texture, signs of hyper-pigmentation and sun damage.  With potent anti-inflammatory benefits, this oil promotes skin barrier renewal.

Olive (Olea europaea) squalane – powerful fruit-based antioxidant and emollient, fights the effects of free radicals, preventing moisture loss while restoring skin’s suppleness and flexibility.

Botanical & fruit extracts with plant actives – native to the Adriatic and Mediterranean regions of Europe, this wholesome blend of nature’s goodness with calming, light notes of citrus, revitalizes your skin, restoring its radiance and promoting a clear, balanced complexion.  Features Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum), Elderberry (Sambucus nigra), Rose (Rosa damascena), Marigold (Calendula officinalis), Sage (Salvia officinalis), White Lupine (Lupinus albus), and Bergamot (Citrus aurantium bergamia).

Vitamin E (d-alpha, d-beta, d-gamma, and d-delta tocopherols) – plant-sourced from non-GMO sunflower (Helianthus annus) oil, vegan, potent antioxidant protects the skin against free radicals and premature aging, as well as helps maintain skin’s elasticity.

This product and all its ingredients are vegan, gluten free and never tested on animals.

I wish you all the best as you travel your path to self care and wellness.

Botanically yours,
