Our recently-released Rejuvenating Facial Oil is a luxurious and transformative elixir for glowing skin—not to mention a truly sustainable, earth-friendly formula.
Take four of its incredible seed oils, for instance: baobab oil, marula oil, mongongo oil, and moringa oil. We sourced these botanicals from South Africa ethically and intentionally, without harming the local ecosystem. The farm employs over 1,000 Botswana citizens who are paid fair wages—including farmers and coordinators—across 25 villages, several of which are certified organic.
Today, we’re spotlighting the formula’s signature ingredient—butterfly pea flower. This venerable vine is absolutely bursting with beneficial polyphenols, flavonoids, and antioxidants, each proven to revitalize, fortify, and firm the look of skin.
It’s also cultivated fairly and responsibly, to ensure a planet-friendly product that improves the lives of the local population.
Ingredient spotlight: Sustainably-sourced butterfly pea flowers.
The renowned butterfly pea flower (Latin name, clitoria ternatia) is native to Thailand, where our sourcing partner works with families to farm and harvest this fast-growing vine. It is a member of the legume family and is used to improve soil for other crops, adding nitrogen into the ground and nutrients from the pea itself, without disrupting the existing ecosystem.
According to our partner, these flowers are “grown with organic practices, which is actually fairly easy to maintain. We have been growing this stunning little blue flower for 10 years, so really do understand farm-to-supply systems backed by quality assurance and control.”
Perhaps most importantly, the farm communities are given autonomy, since they “understand their land best, tending to it each day while growing the highest-grade of butterfly pea flowers” in the world. An example of their expertise comes into play if pests—a rare occurrence—begin to affect the generally-resistant vines: smoke-water is used, a natural bi-product of charcoal that deters insects and is completely safe. Plus, it’s an added revenue stream for the farmers.
Additionally, no chemicals or pesticides are used at any stage, local water systems are kept clean and vibrant, and the work is done by hand, ensuring lower emissions than other crops (which often require more effort, along with pesticides and expensive chemicals).
Great for your skin and better for the planet…
Infused into organic jojoba oil for rapid absorption and maximum results, our butterfly pea flower oil contains a rich concentration of polyphenols, flavonoids, and antioxidants. Among the most powerful? Proanthocyanidin, proven to revitalize, fortify, and firm the look of compromised skin.
