FROM OUR FARM TO YOUR HANDS: Our restorative, high-performance nightly serum, formulated with the 2018 harvest of biodynamically-grown botanicals from our family herb farm in Burgundy, France, is our foundational skincare product. This 100% bioactive oil-based serum is holistically designed for the colder months of the year by providing a synergy of Earth’s most effective phytonutrients to balance and replenish the epidermal lipids in the stratum corneum, induce skin vibrancy, and support the natural physiology of the skin. The plethora of lipids, nutrients, antioxidants and active compounds in our formula has perfect affinity with the skin and helps minimize the production of free radicals and rejuvenates, promoting and sustaining the inherent properties of a healthy, youthful complexion.

KEY INGREDIENTS AND SYNERGIES:
Jojoba, Walnut, Amaranth and Macadamia have supreme affinity with the human skin’s lipid composition. They provide phyto-lipid compounds that replicate those that make up the epidermis (fatty acids, ceramides, cholesterol) to balance, repair and protect the integrity of the Natural Skin Barrier, essential for healthy and beautiful skin. They also quiet epidermal moisture loss (TEWL), and impart a deep restorative effect.
Elderberry, Blackberry, Rice Bran and Red Raspberry supply the skin with a full spectrum of oil-soluble antioxidant compounds to counterbalance the domino effect of free radicals, delaying and minimizing the natural aging process.
Pear, Cacay, Milk Thistle, and Avocado rejuvenate. They stimulate cellular regeneration and repair; they enhance elasticity, plump and smooth lines; they aid in healing environmental damage.
Calendula, Oat, Yarrow and Black Cumin ease out inflammation fast and efficiently.
RITUAL: Shake before use. Warm one pump of serum in your palms and gently massage over clean, damp face, neck & décolleté with upward and circular movements. Ideal for nightly care, especially when paired with a good night’s sleep, but can be used during the day as well. Ideally, apply everyday for a full skin-renewal-cycle (approximately one month) and then use 3 to 4 times a week as night treatment. Repeat these intervals a few times a year.
Our MAISON/MADE BIODYNAMIC FARM HARVEST EXTRACT is the base of the Extrait de Maison Serum. Made with plants we grow ourselves or grow wild around the farm, the M/M Extract is a synergy of vital nutrients for the skin. It is created through a slow extraction method in which plant material is allowed to macerate in a solvent over several weeks (Jojoba oil in our case, since it is the most versatile, skin positive, stable oil there is) so that the herbs gently release their healing properties (their unique phytochemical matrix) into the jojoba oil with the help, once again, of the Sun’s warmth. And this is something that no other extraction method can replicate.
Also, the choice of herbs to grow on our farm for this serum wasn’t left to chance: all these plants complement each other. Many are considered weeds and it’s exactly that fact which makes them special. In order to become weeds, to survive against many odds, they have to be strong, resilient, and potent and that, at their molecular level, translates into an abundance of active healing compounds of lipid nature, such as vitamins, macro minerals, trace minerals, large terpenoids such as phytosterols, large terpenes and pigments like carotenoids and chlorophyll, and phenolic elements. For these compounds to be present in the plants - and not just theory in books - it is important how a plant is cultivated, harvested, handled, stored and extracted. This is crucial to achieve potency in a product. The more colorful the plant material, the more of these compounds it will likely have, and therefore the more our extract will be brimming with them.
SKIN: All skin types. Especially those in need of renewal, repair and rejuvenation, skin barrier balance, and mature skin types. Particularly good for stressed, lifeless skin.
CHARACTER: Lightweight and penetrating, yet of the ideal texture and protection for the winter season.
SCENT: Subtle, harmonizing, enveloping. Herbal with floral and fruity undertones. The aroma of plentitude.
— Each one of our ingredients is the life force of a particular plant in time.
