carotene glow booster dropper

A powerhouse antioxidant booster packed with nutrient rich concentrated botanical extracts that act to support skin's barrier while creating a warm and healthy carotene glow. CO2 (Supercritical Extraction) is one of the most efficient methods of creating a substance that embodies the entire plant and its capabilities. The CO2s of organic sea buckthorn, organic pomegranate and organic rosehip, all rich in powerful bioactives, work together to repair dry skin while Frankincense CO2 soothes and revitalizes it. Customize your routine by adding two drops to your serum or moisturizer to boost its anti-aging activity.

Booster: A blend of concentrated plant extracts that are added to serum or moisturizer to enhance its bioactive properties.  

CO2 (Supercritical Extraction): A method of extracting plant chemicals by using pressurized CO2 as a solvent. It is one of the most efficient extractions to create a substance that embodies the entire plant rather than just the essential oils or triglycerides (cold-pressed oils).  

Carotene: In plants, these orange-coloured pigments turn light into chlorophyll and absorb and scatter UV light. In human skin, they also protect cells from UV damage and convert to retinol, an active vitamin A that keeps skin smooth and firm. In higher concentrations, the orange pigment provides a warm glow to skin tone.

Skin Types:
mature, dull, dry, dehydrated

Smells Like: frankincense

Packaging: glass vial with dropper

Size: 7.5 ml/.25 fl oz


  • Rejuvenating, anti-aging concentrates from plants
  • Protects and rebuilds skin’s barrier
  • Cooling, soothing formula suitable for sensitive skin
  • Provides warm glow to skin tone
  • Creates customization in skin care routine

    Key Ingredients:

    Sea Buckthorn CO2*: This CO2 extraction is from the pulp of the bright orange sea buckthorn berry and contains 34% palmitic acid and 31% palmitoleic acid, fatty acids found naturally in our skin. They function similarly to our sebum forming a protective layer that keeps moisture in. Sea Buckthorn CO2 has a high level of beta-carotene that transforms into anti-aging retinol, an active form of vitamin A.
    Rosehip Seed CO2*: The seeds of the rosehip from the rose bush are packed with the two essential fatty acids omega 6 linoleic acid and omega 3 linolenic acid that are known for their soothing barrier repair and maintenance. This CO2 also contains oleic acid, beta-carotene, phytosterols, and vitamin E.
    Pomegranate Seed CO2*: The seeds of the pomegranate yield a lipid that contains 70% of the rare omega 5 fatty acid called punicic acid, which acts as a strong antioxidant to repair dry skin. Pomegranate seed CO2 also boasts other firming components such as linoleic acid, oleic acid, vitamin E, phytosterols, and squalene. The combination of these bioactives help protect skin’s barrier and reduce the signs of aging. 
    Frankincense CO2 - Wild Grown: This CO2 comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree. Like all resins, this is the repair system of the tree and has soothing, rejuvenating properties. The main constituents are the antioxidant terpenes alpha-pinene, insensol, and caryophyllene. The last two are only in the CO2 and not the essential oil and boast many rejuvenating properties.

    Glow Up!

    I’ve been exploring a number of products in the line and this is my third purchase from the skincare range. I have a fair complexion with redness around the cheeks and nose and wanted a product that was hydrating for my skin but also able to provide warmth for the summer. I was quite surprised by the colour out of the bottle and even more surprised that the dropper was so small, but good things come in small packages on this formulation. Right out of the gate I noticed my skin was given a wash of warmth that was natural, and since I started using the product, I have barely had to apply any foundation, which is the goal with all skincare, right? I’m very impressed and loving the results. I’ve tried other serums and oils but this one is fantastic! I highly recommend and can’t wait to explore more items in the range of products.

    Someone thought I had been on vacation

    I love using the Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster. Back in February, someone asked me where I had been. They thought I had been on vacation because my face looked so bright and healthy.

    Carotene Glow

    This product gives my skin such a pretty bronzed glow. I've used it for two weeks now and the overall tone and texture of my skin has improved. Definitely recommend.

    I'm glowing!

    I started adding 2 drops to my Orange Blossom Moisturizer in the morning and what an immediate difference it made. My skin has a lovely glow and feels super soft. I don't wear a lot of makeup, but this freshens and brightens the skin so much that I am good to go with just lip gloss and mascara. It's like sunshine in a bottle!

    A definite boost !

    I've been using Rosey Cheeks, Rose Dew and Petal Purity for a number of years. When I added Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster to my daily ritual, the results are wonderful. I've never liked wearing makeup, and the glow of this booster has eliminated any need for blush...even in the dark, cold winter :) I love the look, feel and smell of this product.

    What a Glowing Surprise!

    I love everything I use from Cocoon Apothecary and ordered Carotene Glow because I wanted to try something new. I started adding 2 drops of Carotene Glow to my 4 pumps of Rosie Cheeks moisturizer and was very surprised with the extra glow it added to my face. I tend to have oily skin and was worried about adding the extra oil, but it’s great! And goes on really well. I would definitely purchase again!

    I just started using the Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster and I really like it. I put a couple of drops in the Purist lotion and use it every night as a night cream. It makes my face so soft and smooth!

    Tiny but mighty!

    This does exactly what it says it's tiny, but powerful! I add it to my sunscreen for a all-over glow, but I've also used it on my lips for a quick perky color :)

    Good !

    J'ai réellement vu un changement avec ce produit combiné a ma crème. Je l'utilise en duo le matin :)
