Snow mushroom extract (Tremella fuciformis) is a natural ingredient that provides many benefits for the skin. It is rich in polysaccharides, specifically beta-glucans, which have the ability to hold and retain moisture. Snow mushroom extract is sometimes used as a natural alternative to hyaluronic acid. The particles in snow mushrooms are smaller than those in hyaluronic acid, so they have the ability to penetrate the skin more easily. This means snow mushroom extract offers similar, if not better, effects when used in a skincare formulation. As an added bonus, they are sustainably cultivated. It doesn’t take large amounts of land or water to grow them.
Buriti Oil, also called Mauritia flexosa oil, is extracted from the nuts of the moriche palm tree. It is native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical regions in South America. It has gained popularity for use in skincare products as a natural, gentler alternative to retinol. This makes it a great option for people who have not been able to tolerate retinol. Additionally, the combination of antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids in buriti oil help to combat the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Regular use can help contribute to a healthier more radiant complexion.
Vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) is a stable, oil soluble vitamin C ester that helps clarify and brighten skin tone by inhibiting melanogenesis (production of pigment).
AOS Herbalbright ComplexTM is our proprietary blend of skin brightening botanicals.

Swiss apple stem cells are collected from rare Uttwiler Spatlauber apples of Switzerland. Uttwiler Spatlauber is an endangered apple variety that was well-known for its excellent storability. It protects the longevity of skin stem cells, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and preserves the youthful look and the vitality of the skin
Japanese knotweed is rich in resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that helps to care for your skin with natural defenses and protect it from environmental stressors. Ours is wild harvested right here in Oregon.
Olive squalene is a light emollient oil that is similar to the skin’s natural sebum (oil). It penetrates the skin easily to help lubricate, boost moisture and protect skin from moisture loss.
