Smart Skincare From Smart People
From the same Berkley labs where they created an accessible cure for malaria, a group of scientists wanted to take a scientific sensibility and create safe skincare that was smart and effective. The basis of Biossance is an ingredient called squalane, which they bio-ferment from sugarcane into a skin-friendly and stable hydrator. Your own skin creates a version of it called squalene (e not a), but slows that production with age. It’s a form of moisture your skin can recognize which is why it feels so completely invisible.
Did Someone Say Samples?
Anytime a line offers samples, I’m in. And had they not, I probably wouldn’t have invested right away. You can choose 2 samples for just $5 shipping so you can get a feel for the line. I got their Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil and the Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer.
Squalane + Probiotic Moisturizer
This will be one that I buy forever. I’m such a fan of that light, airy, whipped gel creme feeling that it has. It fades away into the skin and leaves behind pure softness. It’s easy to wear under makeup or at night. When my skin is feeling like it needs a little extra moisture, I’ll add a serum underneath but the weight by itself is just right for me.
This light oil brightens and gives tons of glow to the skin with vitamin c and rose extract. I also use it over makeup along my cheekbones as a natural highlight.
Safe skincare is getting better and better and this is such a great example of how elegant natural skincare can be in heavy glass jars and beautiful packaging. It’s a treat to use and really feels special. I love how it makes my skin feel and trust its safety and effectiveness.
