The Next-generation formula takes a three-phase approach to replenishing protective lipids that are depleted by aging and environmental stress. First, phytoactive’s from Camellia and Tamanu oils help restore the skin’s natural barrier. Then, an essential lipid blend that includes Orchid Flower and Chia Seed Oil smoothes visible lines and locks in critical moisture. Finally, Sunflower, Rice Bran, and Rosemary Extracts create a luminous antioxidant shield against free radical damage. Ideal for daily use on normal to dry skin.

Leaves the body soft to the touch and feeling nourished, and of course, skin is left delicately fragranced with that lovely signature scent.
