    Experience skincare simplified with our 'routine-in-a-bottle' approach.

    1. Your skin (and hair) is an ECOSYSTEM of elements that require a specific balance.
    2. Like all ecosystems, when they’re in balance, they’re self-regulating and self-correcting. Meaning they solve their own problems in the long-run.
    3. To restore balance, we prioritize ingredients that:
      1. Replenish the elements that are naturally occurring.
      2. Recharge those same elements by boosting your body’s natural production of them.
      3. Reinforce those elements by slowing slow down their aging process.

    A triple-threat of magical ingredients that work better by working together - not separately - to maintain balance, and removing the need for “layering”.

    That's true synergy. That's long term care. That's prevention. And all it takes is some basic maintenance.

    • Suitable for all skin types and conditions, this non-comedogenic, ultra-productive lotion was formulated for anyone looking to make the most of their time - and their skin - with as little effort as possible.
    • For best results, apply to damp skin right after washing or showering. Clean and damp skin allows for the optimal penetration of active ingredients.
    • A little goes a long way. Apply less than a dime sized amount. Gently massage into skin until it disappears. 
    • For extra dry skin - add on a second layer. 
    • Product was designed for near instant penetration so you are free to relayer as much as needed without fear of overdoing it.
    • Best results when used after F02: The Face Wash
    • Product lasts appx 4 months if used twice a day.

    The only condition is consistency. Use 1-2 times daily, day and night.

    • 1 week: oil production starts to regulate, inflammation calms and new breakouts begin to wane. Skin is visibly healthier, appears clearer, more supple and vibrant.
    • 2 weeks: blemishes and dark spots will begin to fade and complexion will even out.
    • 3 weeks: skin will appear firmer, and more elastic with a visible reduction in the appearance of current wrinkles.
    • 4 weeks+: collagen production improves, new wrinkle formation slows down and skin approaches a steady-state of self-regulation.

    Key Ingredients

    Famously fresh. Locally formulated and micro-batched for unmatched consistency.

    Polyglutamic Acid

    Polyglutamic Acid is a super hydrator, holding more water than hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturize your skin. It boosts your skin’s own moisture levels and works hand-in-hand with hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated and slow down aging signs like wrinkles. This ingredient leaves your skin looking fuller and smoother, making it feel soft and youthful.


    SK Influx V MB intensively hydrates and restores the skin's natural barrier, reducing dryness and flakiness for a smoother complexion. Its lipid-rich formula helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, enhancing skin firmness and elasticity. Ideal for sensitive and mature skin, it rejuvenates and imparts a youthful, radiant glow.


    Phytosphingosine is a natural fat in your skin that strengthens its protective layer, helping to keep moisture in and irritants out. It's a key ingredient for ceramides, which keep your skin smooth by filling in tiny cracks. Plus, it fights against skin problems like acne and eczema, making it great for keeping your skin clear and calm.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    Hyaluronic Acid deeply hydrates your skin, holding over 1000 times its weight in water, giving you a plump, refreshed look. It boosts collagen production, vital for firm, healthy skin, and speeds up healing, making it great for recovering from skin damage. As a powerful anti-aging ingredient, it helps maintain skin hydration and elasticity, keeping your skin looking youthful and vibrant.


    Squalane (Olive derived) is a light oil that deeply moisturizes your skin and protects it from things like pollution, thanks to its antioxidant power. It calms redness and makes skin tone even, which is great for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Squalane also helps control your skin's oil levels, keeping it balanced and smooth without blocking your pores, for healthier-looking skin.


    Ceramides are like the glue that holds your skin cells together, keeping your skin strong and smooth. They help lock in moisture and protect your skin from things like pollution and sun damage. Keeping your ceramide levels up is important for healthy, hydrated skin that looks young and feels soft. Replenishing ceramides can also help soothe and reduce skin issues like dryness, redness, and signs of aging, making them a key ingredient for maintaining your skin's overall health and appearance.


    Allantoin, derived from the comfrey plant, is a gentle yet effective skin care ingredient that deeply hydrates and soothes. It acts as a natural emollient, preventing dryness and reducing irritation, making it ideal for sensitive skin. Its exfoliating properties help remove dead skin cells, improving skin texture and brightness. Additionally, allantoin supports collagen production, aiding in skin repair and rejuvenation for a healthier, more youthful appearance.


    Glycerin is a natural moisturizer that draws water to your skin, keeping it hydrated and preventing dryness. It strengthens your skin's barrier, protecting against irritants and boosting skin's resilience, making it healthier and more robust. Additionally, glycerin aids in healing, has mild germ-fighting properties, and replenishes essential moisturizing factors, keeping your skin soft and supple as you age.


    Urea, found naturally in your skin, helps keep it moist and soft by drawing in and holding onto water. It also gently removes dead skin, making your skin smoother and helping other skincare products work better. Plus, urea can help fight off mild fungus, keeping your skin free from flaking and rough patches.

    Hydrolyzed Collagen

    Hydrolyzed Collagen, with its small molecules, easily penetrates the skin, enhancing its ability to retain moisture for a smoother, more hydrated complexion. While applied topically, it provides a visible smoothing effect on fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a more youthful appearance. As a humectant, it locks in moisture, ensuring your skin stays hydrated and plump for longer periods.

    Tocopherol (Vit E)

    Vitamin E is your skin's shield against environmental damage, actively fighting signs of aging caused by UV rays and pollution. It promotes healing and relief from skin irritations like eczema, while effectively regulating oil balance for a clearer complexion. Essential for keeping skin hydrated and supple, Vitamin E strengthens your skin's natural barrier, preventing dryness for a smooth, youthful appearance.
