Step 1 in our superior lipids+serum moisture system

Feed your skin with a light facial oil designed to match the lipid structure of sebum. It contains fatty acids, triglycerides, wax esters and hydrocarbons in the correct percentages to feed your skin’s microbiome and deliver deep moisturization.

 

The Lipids form part of a two-step moisturization routine – a Lipid phase (step 1) with oil-soluble actives and a Serum phase (step 2) with water-soluble actives. Take the Lipids and pump it into the palm of your hand. Then add Sapienic Serum and mix. You will see a creamy texture starting to form and can then apply to your face. This allows you to tailor the product to your needs as you make your moisturizer in the palm of your hand. On hot humid days you would only use two or three drops of Lipids, but in mid-winter you might need eight or nine. The amount of serum is a constant two pumps.

How it works

To mimic sebum we have blended Ximenia, Squalane and Jojoba oils. Ximenia oil provides triglycerides and ultra-long-chain fatty acids as well as other eclectic fatty acids. Squalane acts as a non-nutritive hydrocarbon to replace the squalene naturally found in human sebum. Jojoba provides the wax esters.

How to use it

Use 2 to 4 drops for oily skin and 4 to 10 drops for dry skin. Tailor the amount of oil to suit your skin condition. Apply to facial area before a Sapienic Serum (Phase 2) to enhance penetration.

Future forward packaging

The outer carton is fully compostable, made from recycled card with an organic cotton tag.

The primary packaging is glass. We chose glass because it is more likely to be recycled and has no environmental impact if isn’t. The pump is polypropylene with aluminum trim.

The embodied carbon of the whole product, delivered to your door, is 215g and we have purchased carbon credits to offset this. There is 6.7g of plastic in the packaging and we have recovered an equivalent amount of plastic from the ocean to ensure plastic neutrality.

All the ingredients

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Ximenia Americana Seed Oil, Squalane, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Vanillin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil

What do we mean by carbon neutral?

We account for the carbon that is emitted in the manufacture of our raw materials and packaging (embodied carbon). This is partly why we use glass wherever we can. We also audit the carbon that we produce in the manufacture and transport of the product to its final destination. We make every effort to reduce these emissions. We purchase ethical carbon offsets for the emissions that we cannot avoid. As we grow our sphere of influence, we will be able to put more pressure on our suppliers to reduce their carbon footprints.

Vegan & Cruelty Free

We will not test our products on animals. We will not purchase raw materials from suppliers that test on animals or that contract with other entities that do. Animal testing is still required for products that are sold in China, so our products will not be available in that country. We will not use animal products of any kind in our range… not even beeswax.

Plastic Neutral

We use glass packaging where we can. It has high recycle rates and isn’t toxic in the environment.
We have not been able to find an alternative for plastic for our closures. To offset our plastic footprint, we have purchased offsets to prevent plastic from entering the ocean. This means the safe collection and recovery of ocean-bound plastic waste. The contribution supports clean environments and creates sustainable jobs.
We will extend and expand this project as we grow.
