This toner is the perfect companion for oily, breakout-prone skin. Adaptogenic and antioxidant herbs work together to help with hydration balance, microbiome health, pimples, and reducing stress on skin.
Potent Organic Green Tea, Eleuthero Root, Rhodiola and Red Clover combine to assist skin beset by hormone fluctuations and inflammation. Our high energy herb combination synergistically reduces the appearance of hormone and stress based changes to skin including oil production, irritation, and blemishes. Organic Calendula deeply hydrates to reduce the appearance of blemishes and other skin damage. Whole-herb, unprocessed Honeysuckle extract is included especially for skin suffering from bacteria overpopulation.
The base is a specially prepared infusion of fresh organic cantaloupe. It brings Super Oxide Dismutase, Vitamin A, B3, B6 and potassium to our blend as well as a fresh melon aroma. To create this delightful infusion we peel, slice, soak, and strain many pounds of organic Cantaloupes. It's a lot of work but the result is worthwhile.
Normally the Super Oxide Dismutase antioxidant present in cantaloupe is destroyed by stomach acids when we eat it, but in a cold processed, topical formulation you can benefit from it. We love eating our way to better skin, but sometimes topical products win!
The fermented Wasabi extract helps boost the activity of the SOD from the cantaloupe and also helps with fostering a healthy microbiome on the skin. You can keep skin looking clear and also fight the visible signs of age-related damage. Our intelligent recipe design proves that you don't have to go synthetic to get incredible results.
The essential oil blend in this product has a fruity and floral aroma to it due to the combination of Cantaloupe infusion, Rose Geranium, and Bergamot. Essential oils in our products are included for their therapeutic properties and not just for scent.
Blissoma's toners are not astringents. They are actually hydrating for your skin. You can use them after cleansing and before moisturizing like many lines recommend. If you are using our Fresh Mild Rice Cleanser or Free Rejuvenating Herbal Gel Cleanser your skin won't actually need PH balancing, as those are acidic cleansers that won't disturb your acid mantle.
Do you really need a toner? Well, that's up to you. Toner is not a mandatory step in our opinion, but can be beneficial in increasing overall hydration and nourishment. Some people really love this step in their skincare routine. We have also made sure to create them with ingredients that we handle differently than in some of our other emulsion based products. That means these carry a different nutrient load than our creams, so even the same herb in both products may yield different phytonutrients because of a different production process.
Toner can also be used as a refreshing mist throughout the day. Keep a toner in your desk at work or in the fridge to give yourself a cool spritz on warm days. You can also use our toners to set your mineral makeup, such as Alima Pure foundation or blush. A couple sprays will lay the minerals down into the skin so that the makeup blends seamlessly in.
Spray directly onto facial skin after cleansing, mask treatments, or anytime during the day to give skin a boost of hydration and high functionality. Allow to absorb and then moisturize. Can also be used to set mineral makeups.
