Yuzu Vitamin C Serum
Complexion Saving Vitamin C Concentrate
An ultra limited edition Vitamin C powerhouse serum, composed with sun-infused extracts of Yuzu peel, pith and leaves grown on our Kangaroo Valley property. We only have one tree and usually have to fight the Kangaroos over the harvest of the super antioxidant citrus fruit, so there's only 50 odd bottles this year, maybe a few more if my 2nd batch turns out well in January 19.
Yuzu whole plant extract is entirely different from the usual 'natural derived' Vitamin C powder enhanced serums on the market:
Our slow and non-invasive extraction process doesn't break up the fruit's chemical structure.
We also only use biodynamic olive oil to extract the medicinal properties, never water, as the minerals in water degrade and oxidise the Vitamin C, rendering it useless, even aggravating to the skin.
Yuzu softens even the driest of skin, boosts collagen production, restores elasticity and cell turnover, and, according to Ayurvedic medicine, soothes the 'vata doshas' characterised by space, wind and air, which is why it has been traditionally used for dry skin conditions.
For women and men. Mature skin. Especially dry, lacklustre, sun-exposed and weatherbeaten summer or winter skin in need of special tender love and care and intense, deep hydration.
Use very little, a drop is ample. Mornings and evenings. Massage 1 or 2 drops max into still damp and warm skin every morning, using your ring fingers starting from the eyes. Your ring fingers have the lightest touch of all your digits and won’t pull your skin. This is a subtly fragrant composition that easily absorbs into the skin. Blend a drop with your night cream for a Vitamin night-repair boost.
