Nordic Adaptogen complex:
Finland’s pure and pristine forest ecosystem is home to some of the cleanest air and water on the planet. The powerful plant extracts native to Finland and its Nordic neighbours are widely known to help boost resistance to the impact of stress and oxidative damage on cells in the body. These antioxidants are among the highest rated on the ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) and can support skin health by protecting cells against the impact of internal and external stress.
Our Adaptogen blend comprises several of these high potency, natural antioxidants. Sourced in the Nordic region and known for their ability to thrive in harsh environments, we have sourced some of the hardest-working skin supporters known to nature.
Using only the highest quality extractions from abundant plants we are able to provide highly bioavailable and sustainable sources of adaptogens which deliver remarkable skin benefits.
Cloudberry extract: ideal for sensitive, inflamed or acne-prone skin, this golden berry grows naturally in the northern climes of Scandinavia. Our wild golden berries are handpicked in Finnish Lapland and are extremely rich in natural antioxidants. Whilst sour to taste, these natural skin calmers have been shown to soothe even the most compromised skins. They are rich in beta-carotene, anthocyanins & vitamin E.
Siberian Ginseng: known for its anti-fatigue properties, this adaptogen is packed with antioxidants and rich in nutrients that support and offer environmental protection. This plant grows naturally across Scandinavia, Russia and Northern Asia.
Rhodiola Rosea: this anti-ageing adaptogen is known for its ability to support skin repair, boost firmness and improve the look of lines and wrinkles. Known to grow mainly in Arctic areas – and also known as ‘arctic rose’ – it is naturally high in antioxidants and flavonoids.
Seabuckthorn oil: the rich, bright orange oil from the buckthorn plant has been proven to help heal and reduce scarring from acne and improve discolouration caused by environmental damage. Rich in omega acids 3,6,7 and 9, and natural vitamins A,E and C (at the concentration of 10 times that of an orange) it nourishes and supports skin repair.
Our special boosters are chosen to support even sensitive skins, and work to rapidly deliver key benefits beyond the surface. They work synergistically to improve skin’s brightness, tone and texture, while also restoring feelings of comfort and resilience to compromised complexions.
Birch sap: you won’t find water as the base of our Nordic Adaptogen Serum. Instead, we’ve boosted our formula with the natural sap from the revitalising Birch Tree. Rich in myriad trace minerals and antioxidants, it is also wonderfully soothing and hydrating.
Spruce knot extract: this powerful extract brims with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits and is harvested from the Northern European (Christmas) tree. Spruce knot possesses many stellar skin benefits including gentle, anti-bacterial properties that make it a great ally in the treatment and prevention of acne, alongside natural sebum-balancing benefits.
Ferulic Acid: this natural organic compound is abundant in the phenolic phytochemical found in plant cell walls. A natural skin booster, it can help improve skin’s appearance by reducing the look of lines, wrinkles and discolouration. It is also a powerful antioxidant that protects against free radical damage, promotes firmness, and also helps to stabilise vitamin C, thereby making it far more effective.
Lactic Acid: this gentlest, naturally exfoliating alpha-hydroxy-acid is ideal for sensitive skin, because it is able to renew the skin’s texture without irritation, leaving skin smooth, clear and even. Improving tone, texture and hydration, it also supports optimal collagen production.
Our Forest Scent blend:
At the heart of our Nordic Adaptogen Serum is our signature blend of natural essential oils – designed to transport you to the heart of the salubrious Nordic Forest. Invigorating woodland resins and green plant aromas mingle with revitalising tree notes, which are then softened with the sweetness of wild summer forest flowers – a sensorially delicious experience that lifts the mood, refreshes the mind and rebalances the body. Designed to imbue your bathroom with the benefits of forest bathing, this all-natural scent helps to reduce the effects of stress, transforming your routine into a sauna-like ritual. And, in keeping with our holistic approach, our chosen essential oils are also proven to soothe and strengthen the skin.
