*Carrot Seed Serum is a luxurious blend of nutrient-rich oils and a long list of therapeutic herbs known to nourish, restore and protect, leaving even the driest skin smoother, brighter, and with a radiant glow. Use it with your favorite hydrosol for deep hydration and to lock in moisture.
With my Lavender Cleanser/Toner's success, I was motivated to create a second product that would provide even more nourishment and protection to my skin – I wanted to make a serum.
Serums are generally used on clean skin to provide nutrition and protection. My whole life I struggled with sensitive and oily skin, so the idea of using an oil-based serum seemed crazy, but more research only turned up more benefits of using oils. Digging a little deeper, I learned that some especially, nutrient-rich oils also balance sebum production (the skin's natural oil) – a win/win!
After creating, loving, and obsessively using my first Serum(Rosemary), I started talking with friends and family about my formulas and asking questions about their skin and their issues. Among the first was my mother-in-law Marie who is in her 70's and has lived all of her active outdoor life in the sun and sea of California. She shared with me that her skin was dry and getting drier as she got older after many years of sun damage.
Not long afterward, I formulated SOiL's Carrot Seed Serum for dry and mature skin.
Carrot seed was the obvious choice as the primary ingredient for its ability to boost collagen production, smooth lines, repair sun damage, and reduce scar tissue appearance. I picked oils with many similar properties to those in the Rosemary Serum but are richer to help with more severe dryness.
Marie loved the Carrot Seed Serum immediately and has continued to use it to this day. She said, "My mature, dry skin drinks the serum and lines and wrinkles visibly relax and smooth out!"
Like all SOiL products, these two serums were initially created for me and people I know and love (not to sell). I am SO excited to put them out into the world. I hope they increase your skin's health and beauty and your life as much as they have for Marie and me.
