Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster
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 for bright, protected and rejuvenated skin.
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.

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.
Hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) CO2*, rosa canina (rosehip) CO2*, punica granatum (pomegranate) CO2*, boswellia carteri (frankincense) CO2, tocopherol (vitamin E), rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) CO2*.
Instructions: Add two drops of Antioxidant Booster to your serum or moisturizer and apply to face and neck.
Tiny but mighty!
This does exactly what it says it will...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 :)
Love this product!
I am very happy with this product. It leaves my skin feeling great and I love the little bit of flow or colour it adds too!
J'ai rÃ©ellement vu un changement avec ce produit combinÃ© a ma crÃ¨me. Je l'utilise en duo le matin :)
I've been using this for a week now, mainly once but sometimes twice a day. WOW. I've been lax with my skin care lately and this brought my skin back to an even better condition than before. It took away the crepiness under my eyes and made it look fresh and tight again. Gave my skin a glow that's still there in the morning and lasts all day. I had brown spots on my cheeks, those are fading fast (!!) The skin on my neck is tighter, and I'm a side sleeper so I had wringles all along my colarbone and down my neckline that are fast disappearing. I can't believe what this is doing! I add 4 drops to 4 squirt of my Rosey Cheeks Moisturizer and after washing and toning appy that to my face, neck, and cleavage. I'm going to start adding this to the back of my hands now too. I'm 47 year old and taking YEARS off my skin and I'm loving it!!
This was a gift and it's incredible! I mix a few drops with my face oil every morning, you instantly get a warm glow. I've gotten numerous compliments since using this product.
