Known for its immune-enhancing properties, Echinacea (E. purpurea, angustifolia, pallida), has a rich history of use by Native American and indigenous groups to address external injuries.
Since then, modern science has demonstrated the plant extract's cleansing, purifying, and rejuvenating properties. Chemical constituents of echinacea have been shown to improve hydration and to protect skin from environmental damage.
Our Lavandin Cleansing Milk works wonders on young, oily or congested skin to not only sooth blemishes but heal and improve the look of scars from past breakouts. This cleanser leaves skin refreshed and protected, and its classic calming aroma is a therapy in itself.
Anti-Acne Facial Serum helps purify and balance troubled skin with a gentle, non-sticky, and lightweight formula that can be used as a spot treatment, or as part of an all-over preventative facial regimen.
