Laurel Whole Plant Organics
A pioneer in the "farm-to-facial" space, Laurel's all-natural products are certified organic or certified Biodynamic.
Using the latest research in plant science and herbalism to guide its formulas, Laurel focuses on using the whole plant (as opposed to an extraction or derivative). Each ingredient is raw and unrefined with no chemical solvents used during the production and manufacturing process.
The Unburden Serum is crafted to soothe sensitive and breakout-prone skin by addressing blemishes, excessive dryness, broken capillaries, inflammation, redness and rosacea, loss of elasticity, and even hyper-pigmentation.
Tip: Spritz with a mist, or slightly dampen your face with water before using an oil serum, says holistic esthetician Britta Plug. "Your skin needs to be hydrated to prepare the skin to absorb the oil, otherwise the oil will just sit on top of your dry skin and you'll have a bad experience. You won't feel moisturized but you'll still feel greasy—neither of that sounds good!"
