With the great success and popularity of our “Get Your Glow Back Turmeric Mask”, we decided that a follow-up serum would be a great way to attack all the nasty pollutants we come across every day. With turmerics healing, anticarcinogenic, antioxidant, antiseptic. anti-inflammatory (the effective-ness of which is comparable to pharmaceutical medicines), and protective properties (curcumin, the same component that prevents deterioration of food can protect living tissue from degenerating), how could we resist?
Method of Application
Apply 3-5 drops to your moisten face. Gently spread with your fingertips. Let dry naturally and move on to the conditioning phase of your routine.
Shelf Life and Storage Information for
Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend their shelf life. Shelf life for most products is 9 - 12 months. Vitamin C and VitaResurface products should always be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months) and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).Please keep your products out of high humidity, heat, direct light and keep in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9 - 12 months. The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Serums or the Salicylic Acid Serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration
Hydrosols - Remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add into a separate, sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate all carrier oils although some of the very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it should liquefy. If not, setting the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shaking the bottle will hopefully turn to a liquid. ^There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil. Refrigeration is not necessary but it surely won't hurt.
Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.
Co2 Extracts - These should always be refrigerated.
Butters - We suggest refrigerating our "skincare' butters. You can take out what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - Keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - All herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and dry location.
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - These are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls the constituents from each herb. Root, Trunk, Leaves, and Flowers. Extracts have a shelf life of 3-5 years. They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
Other Various Raw Ingredients - i.e. Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan etc. will all have a different shelf life.

Turmeric (curcuminoids) tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC) are derived from curcuminoids (extracted from the roots of curcuma longa, commonly known as turmeric root). Tetrahydrocurcuminoids are phenolic in nature, acting as antioxidants, protecting against free radicals and preventing the generation of free radicals. Unlike yellow curcuminoids, THC is a colorless compound which can therefore be used in color free cosmetic products that currently employ conventional and synthetic antioxidants. Tetrahydrocurcumin has been shown to efficiently inhibit tyrosinase. As such, it is an effective skin lightening agent with multifunctional topical benefits. It has been tested to determine its safety for topical use with no irritant or sensitization side effects.The anti-inflammatory effects of THC combined with their efficient antioxidant action render them useful as ingredients in anti-aging formulations, skin lightening and brightening products and topical formulations designed to maintain general skin health and integrity.
