— Each one of our ingredients is the life force of a particular plant in time. The quality of air it breathed, the water and nutrients from the soil it absorbed.
Our MAISON/MADE BIODYNAMIC FARM HARVEST EXTRACT is the main ingredient in the Extrait de Maison Serum. Made with plants we grow following the Biodynamic principles exclusively to use in our EdM Serum, 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 an organic solvent over a period of time (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) with the help of the Sun’s warmth and our closest care. 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 commonly considered weeds and it’s exactly that fact which makes them special. In order to become weeds, to survive against many odds, they need to be strong and resilient, and that, at their molecular level, translates into an abundance of active phytonutrients such as vitamins and provitamins, macro minerals and trace minerals, phytosterols, large terpenoids and pigments like carotenoids and chlorophyll, and phenolic elements. For these compounds to be present in the plants - and not be 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 fresh and colorful the plant material, the more of these compounds it will likely have, and therefore the more our extract will be brimming with them.
KEY INGREDIENTS AND SYNERGIES:
Cacay, Pear, Lupine, Gotu Kola, Elderflower, and Blackberry rejuvenate and revitalize. They stimulate cellular regeneration and repair; they enhance elasticity, plump and smooth lines; they aid in healing environmental damage.
Raspberry, Nettle, Elderberry, Rice Bran, and Avocado supply the skin with a full spectrum of vitamins A, E, D, and K, minerals, and antioxidant compounds to counterbalance the domino effect of free radicals, delaying and minimizing the natural aging process.
Calendula, Oat, Yarrow, Cucumber and Black Cumin soothe, protect and ease out inflammation fast and efficiently.
Jojoba, Kiwi, Strawberry and Macadamia provide the optimal 3:1 ratio of Linoleic and Alpha Linolenic Acids and also have supreme affinity with the human skin’s lipid composition. They offer naturally occurring phyto-lipid compounds that replicate those that make up the epidermis and the sebum (free fatty acids, waxes, ceramides, cholesterol, and squalene) 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.
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 every day for a full skin-renewal-cycle (approximately one month) and then use 3 to 4 times a week. Repeat these intervals a few times a year.
SKIN: All skin types. Especially those in need of renewal, repair and rejuvenation, skin barrier balance, loss of elasticity and firmness. Particularly good for mature, dry, stressed, and lifeless skin.
CHARACTER: Lightweight and penetrating. With the ideal texture and protection for the summer season.
SCENT: Subtle, harmonizing, enveloping. Herbal with floral and fruity undertones. The aroma of plentitude.
