PETRICHOR Purifying Tonic (hot weather and oily skin mist)

with white willow bark, cucumber, ferulic acid, green tea, watermelon and more!

A synergistic mist that purifies and protects the skin from the environment with super-antioxidant ferulic acid and green tea extract, while soothing skin with a double dose of cucumber, purifying with white willow bark and undoing environmental stress with nutritious watermelon extract. 

  • Petrichor is the distinct scent that emanates from the earth after a heavy and much-needed rainfall. It is actually a modern word that means "blood of the stone"... and how does one make a rock bleed? Simply by letting a few tears flow, a long-held outpouring when pregnant clouds finally can no longer bear the weight any longer. Few things offer that sense of renewal and possibility like the scent and the feel of the air after much-needed rain. Dust is rinsed away from sidewalks and buildings, gardens perk up and trees let go of a long-held exhale. It's not just refreshing, it's a promise of renewal.

  • Description

    Calms inflamed skin, protects skin with antioxidants and treats blemishes and promotes healthy looking skin! This POWERFUL mist is not a toner, but a skin tonic, and does not dry out skin (in fact, it's a light humectant and will increase skin's hydration. Rejoice!). This super-juice gently cleanses and exfoliates skin with the salicylic acid found in white willow bark, while aloe and cucumber soothe and cool skin. Ferulic acid, an incredibly potent antioxidant found in nearly every plant seed, boosts the effects of the other antioxidants, like the green tea extract, and the vitamins in the watermelon extract in this formula...and may even work better in the presence of UV! (Be sure to wear SPF anyhow.) Witch Hazel, native to eastern Canada, tones skin, reduces inflammation and irritation and makes pimples vanish. Watermelon extract provides a nutritious burst of vitamins to the skin (with purported UV-repairing properties!). Use after cleansing skin, before moisturizing. Can be washed off or left on. Has an earthy scent. Ideal for those living in heavily polluted cities, or for acne-prone skin that over-produces sebum.

    Who is it for?:

    • Oily, acne-prone and congested skin.
    • Combination skin needing balance.
    • Those living in a heavily polluted city.

    How to Use

    Spritz on clean, damp skin. One of two sprays is enough! You can let skin absorb in the goodies, or gently blot off with a tissue (or whatever you like.)  Apply your favourite facial oil afterwards (which is probably our CY or NL) while skin is still damp for best results. Some sedimentation can occur, shake before use! Some batches are cloudier than others, this is normal. :)

    • Ferulic Acid is an extremely powerful antioxidant derived the cells walls of rice bran and other plants (and not really an acid, per se). It's so good, it can help strengthen the effectiveness of other vitamins and antioxidants. White Willow Bark has long been used to help blemishes clear up with it's antibacterial and astringent properties, while gently exfoliating dead skin cells away. White willow bark is also great for controlling sebum. Aloe is an all-round skin superhero, with soothing and nourishing properties. Watermelon extract is rich in Vitamin C, which helps UV-stressed skin to rebuild and protect itself. Watermelon can also help skin protect itself from daily toxins. Witch-hazel is both soothing and astringent. Perfect for soothing irritated skin without adding any oiliness. Cucumber calms and cools skin while providing it with vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed for cell growth. It is also rich in antioxidants and gives skin a radiant glow. Green tea, rich in ECGC, is a great antioxidant and all-round do-gooder.
