Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer
1 oz / 30 ml
The mysterious Ambrosia do Cerrado Liquid Moisturizer, with an irresistible guava-plus-citrus scent, feels like applying brightening yellow dewdrops that are fully charged with unrefined, whole-food (not isolated or factory-produced “nature identical”) nutrients from the superfood buriti, pequi, and moringa oils.
Earthwise idea was to create a formula that would be truly nourishing, yet ultra-light and breathable at the same time, to deliver a bright, radiant glow and lots of moisture without a waxy, heavy, or overly emollient feel. This format is very appealing for the times when the skin is dehydrated but you don't want oil or an emulsion (lotion or cream) on your face because you prefer a lighter feel. By light, we don’t mean “just a little bit effective”: this moisturizer is highly effective in what it is designed to do; you will be amazed by how much and how quickly your skin can absorb in each single application.
For all skin types. Contains no emulsifiers or essential oils, making it suitable for the most sensitive skin. Acne-prone, combination, sensitive, and oily skin types can enjoy hydration without the risk of breakouts or the oily or waxy feel of moisturizers that are too rich for them. Dry and normal skin types will benefit from the nutrients and hydration when using this potion as the first step, before applying a richer cream or facial oil.
HOW TO USE
Shake well and apply generously onto freshly washed face or over your aloe-based serum of choice. Most skin types will benefit from following immediately with an emollient moisturizer, facial oil or balm. Ideally REFRIGERATE to protect freshness and enhance the cooling, refreshing, and depuffing properties.
Despite its deceptively light feel, this moisturizer is deeply hydrating and nourishing, and also has an overall brightening effect. The carefully-sourced oils chosen for this formula include:
Hand-extracted pequi fruit oil: This unique, extract-like oil from the Cerrado savanna in Brazil is rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene (which the body converts to vitamin A), and vitamins B1 and B2, all of which promote firm, supple, even-toned skin. The high vitamin C content makes pequi fruit oil a top choice for lightening skin discolorations as well as encouraging a brighter, more vibrant, youthful-looking complexion.
Buriti oil: Also from Brazil, this oil is highly praised for its anti-aging results. Like pequi fruit, buriti oil is an excellent source of beta-carotene, a natural antioxidant, as well as vitamins E and A. This makes it a natural emollient, and an extremely effective choice for improving the appearance of brown spots, scars, and sun damage. Together, these two oils can significantly improve the appearance of dull, pasty, or dry skin, and contribute to an overall radiant, healthy glow.
Moringa pod oil: Another nutrient-rich powerhouse, moringa is an especially hydrating oil that also delivers an incredible range of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (too many to list all of them here, but for starters, it contains beta-carotenes, several B vitamins, selenium, and zinc).
We find that skincare products are amazingly skin-compatible with minimal risk of allergic reactions if the vitamins and minerals are included in the form of pure, fresh plant oils, rather than vitamin powders that come in a plastic bag from a cosmetics ingredients supplier.
This liquid emulsion-type moisturizer contains no emulsifiers, and there are no fragrances added, not even essential oils, to allow the unique fruitiness of the pequi fruit to come through. Moringa oil provides a complementary green note.
