Wild Foraging

Wild Foraging

An ancient practice of gathering plants in their natural habitat. Unassisted by man, fortified solely by nature, and left to fend for themselves, these wild botanicals build resilience and strength. 

In harmony with nature, we seasonally forage these Extremophyte™ plants in their natural communities because this enables them to produce intense concentrations of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. Our wild-foraged botanicals boast some of the highest nutrient and antioxidant levels and yield potent bioactives for our products.

We have exclusive access to a breathtaking cornucopia of wild organic plants with specific skincare benefits and rich medicinal histories. Because of the unmatched botanical diversity and the vastness of the Estate, we are able to wild forage organic ingredients on a grand scale.

Plant Community Harvesting

Plant Community Harvesting

Our wildly potent formulas are made from plants harvested from whole communities. This agricultural practice honors the diversity of the natural ecosystem while optimizing the potency of nutrients and antioxidants that the plants produce.

We have discovered plants work as a team, forming synergies and friendships, sharing strategies to protect and strengthen each other. They function best when part of a diverse community, so we make sure to grow and harvest them collectively.

Soundbath™ Extraction Method

Soundbath™ Extraction Method

Our Soundbath™ is a bio-natural green technology that was first developed in the pharmaceutical industry to optimize the potency of the active ingredients with precision and consistency.

Botanicals are freshly picked, fastidiously cleaned, dried, milled into fine particles, and immersed in either oil or hydro-glycerin. The mixtures are gently processed at low temperatures in ultrasound baths for a quick extraction that preserves the full potency of nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, phenols, and aromatic essences inside.

The resulting Soundbath™ infusion is packed with concentrations of bioactive nutrients for more effective products.

Interlocking Delivery System

Interlocking Delivery System

Our product development process begins and ends with nutrient-packed, whole plants. After we extract the water and oil components of the whole plant via our Soundbath™ method, we reunite the parts, through science or skincare rituals, to create an interlocking delivery system for our bioactive ingredients.

Our water- and oil-based products complete and complement each other to provide the full scope of nutritional benefits for skin. The blends nourish skin with balanced nutrition to leave it glowing with vitality. 

Testing Methods

Testing Methods

We've partnered with a top testing facility in Princeton to measure an ingredient’s anti-oxidizing effect in a way that’s specific to skin. Our lab determines an ingredient’s ability to protect the skin against environmental stressors such as free radicals, UV, IR, and blue light. We bucked the trend of relying solely on food-based ratings, since antioxidants work differently on skin than on the digestive system.
