Named for a goddess beloved by herbalists, this cream is something I dreamed up bit by bit, formulating it over a span of months, tweaking here and there, swapping out ingredients, before I landed on this combination of oils, extracts and herbs. I wanted something incredibly rich and hydrating, packed with plants that would help with these three things:
Repair damage from free radicals
Renew the skin and promote a healthy complexion
Protect the skin from further damage (think weather, pollution, too much time in the sun)
It had to look and feel like a luxury, too.
And so Circe was born. The star of this cream is a rich oil extracted from the berries of sea buckthorn, a beautiful plant with bright orange berries that grows by the ocean.
Renown for the magic it can work on the skin, sea buckthorn is said to protect from free radicals, promote collagen production, smooth fine lines, and balance oil production to encourage a clear, vibrant complexion.
Calendula flowers and raspberry seed, apricot and rosehip oils add to this effect, while tulsi hydrosol and rich organic beeswax give it a sweet, calming, subtle herbal scent.
