A powerhouse antioxidant booster packed with nutrient rich concentrated botanical extracts that act to support skin's barrier while creating a warm and healthy carotene glow. CO2 (Supercritical Extraction) is one of the most efficient methods of creating a substance that embodies the entire plant and its capabilities. The CO2s of organic sea buckthorn, organic pomegranate and organic rosehip, all rich in powerful bioactives, work together to repair dry skin while Frankincense CO2 soothes and revitalizes it. Customize your routine by adding two drops to your serum or moisturizer to boost its anti-aging activity.

Skin Types: mature, dull, dry, dehydrated

Key Ingredients:

Sea Buckthorn CO2*: This CO2 extraction is from the pulp of the bright orange sea buckthorn berry and contains 34% palmitic acid and 31% palmitoleic acid, fatty acids found naturally in our skin. They function similarly to our sebum forming a protective layer that keeps moisture in. Sea Buckthorn CO2 has a high level of beta-carotene that transforms into anti-aging retinol, an active form of vitamin A.
 
Rosehip Seed CO2*: The seeds of the rosehip from the rose bush are packed with the two essential fatty acids omega 6 linoleic acid and omega 3 linolenic acid that are known for their soothing moisture barrier repair and maintenance. This CO2 also contains oleic acid, beta-carotene, phytosterols, and vitamin E.
 
Pomegranate Seed CO2*: The seeds of the pomegranate yield a lipid that contains 70% of the rare omega 5 fatty acid called punicic acid, which acts as a strong antioxidant to repair dry skin. Pomegranate seed CO2 also boasts other firming components such as linoleic acid, oleic acid, vitamin E, phytosterols, and squalene. The combination of these bioactives help protect skin’s moisture barrier and reduce the signs of aging. 
 
Frankincense CO2 - Wild Grown &  FairWild® certified: This CO2 comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree. Like all resins, this is the repair system of the tree and has soothing, rejuvenating properties. The main constituents are the antioxidant terpenes alpha-pinene, insensol, and caryophyllene. The last two are only in the CO2 and not the essential oil and boast many rejuvenating properties. The supplier of the extract we purchase is FairWild® certified. That means only a few collecting families are authorized, thus yields are extremely limited. Their precious groves of Frankincense trees are rotated and scratched for gum harvest only every third year.

Booster: A blend of concentrated plant extracts that are added to serum or moisturizer to enhance its bioactive properties.  

CO2 (Supercritical Extraction): A method of extracting plant chemicals by using pressurized CO2 as a solvent. It is one of the most efficient extractions to create a substance that embodies the entire plant rather than just the essential oils or triglycerides (cold-pressed oils).  

Carotene: In plants, these orange-coloured pigments turn light into chlorophyll and absorb and scatter UV light. In human skin, they convert to retinol, an active vitamin A that keeps skin smooth and firm. In higher concentrations, the orange pigment provides a warm glow to skin tone.

Smells Like: frankincense

Packaging: glass vial with dropper

Size: 7.5 ml/.25 fl oz

       

      Ingredients:

      I absolutely love this product I'm already on my second bottle. I love the way it makes my skin look. Sometimes I even mix it with a little bit of moisturizer and don't bother with makeup on a hot summer day. I love it so much I also use it at night time with my night moisturizer. Would definitely recommend this product.

      Glow

      The Carotene Glow Antioxidant Booster really does give an orange tint to your skin (that seems to mellow after a bit) so be careful to blend it well into your hairline and neck! I mix the Nordic Boost Serum with 2 drops of the Carotene Glow for easier application and together they feel wonderful on my face.

      Great product, and smooth delivery!

      Love the carotene glow booster! I have never used a booster before, but will definitely incorporate it into my moisturizing routine going forward. As with some others, I am quite pale and find that just using one drop, mixed in with my regular moisturizer, does the trick. It blends easily and gives a nice, healthy-looking glow. While the product is very orange (it's carotene, after all!), as long as I mix it with a moisturizer and blend it in, I haven't found any issues with residue or staining on clothes/face mask or anything like that, even when I use it right before leaving the house. Will definitely buy again, and try other products!

      Great!

      I tried this product recently for the first time and quite like it. It does have an orange colour to it but even in winter with my very pale skin it rubs in well when mixed with my face cream and makes my skin look slightly tanned. It doesn't leave any marks on my clothes either.
