ANTIOXIDANT SERUM: Vibrancy Revival
With 31 of the freshest and most potent, powerful botanicals, Antioxidant Serum: Vibrancy Revival is a concentrated moisturizer, serum, and elemental defense oil in one that restores vitality in just one drop. Its nutrient density combined with antioxidant, vitamin, and mineral activity is meant to meet the surface level symptoms that come with vibrant-aging with ease, and to deeply restore the radiant skin health we are all meant to have.
With every beneficial essential fatty acid possible, alongside potent antioxidants like carotenoids, vitamin E and polyphenols, Laurel’s Antioxidant Serum has it all. It has every nutrient imaginable for our skin to be vibrant, radiant and healthy. This serum starts with a 3-month infusion of fresh plants like gotu kola (for connective tissue strength), calendula (for barrier support and carotenoid activity), and comfrey (for cell proliferation and regeneration), all mindfully sourced from local artisan farms. After pressing the infusion by hand, Laurel then layers on freshly pressed oils like sea buckthorn, pomegranate, and rosehip for their rich nutrient-dense profiles that offer protection from oxidative stress. And finally, Laurel infuses the serum with essential oils like white rose, carrot seed and frankincense; each powerful healing plants in their own right for barrier support, tissue repair, and brightening. With Laurel Skin’s Antioxidant Serum, radiant skin health is inevitable, and vibrancy will be restored.
Containing 31 beneficial active ingredients and 100% whole plant organic, this serum is a beautiful choice for all skin.
Gotu Kola – Gotu kola is a plant that supports connective tissue and collagen, by protecting it and encouraging new growth. Laurel’s gotu kola is the most vibrant in the world and grown exclusively for them by a nearby farm.
Calendula – Calendula is another plant that is a true necessity for healthy skin. It is deeply restorative and healing on a cellular level, with an abundance of carotenoids and resins that our skin can use with ease. It is excellent for forms of skin damage.
Frankincense – Laurel’s certified organic frankincense is distilled in Vermont by a family who travels to Somalia each year for harvesting. This beautiful resin has been used for centuries to revitalize and strengthen the skin.
Pomegranate – This thick and rich seed oil is incredibly protective and nourishing. It visibly moisturizes and plumps immediately, while its vast and unique essential fatty acid profile and antioxidants get to work to deeply restore skin health.
White Rose – Laurel’s rare and unique white rose is gentle and soothing to the skin. It is regenerative to numerous skin functions, including barrier function, hydration, and strengthens and plumps connective tissue.
Jasmine – Laurel’s unique jasmine is hydro-distilled specifically for them. This is the only hydro-distillation done with the jasmine flower in the world, which prevents the use of hexane extractions while still offering a true representation of this beautiful delicate flower, that also happens to be regenerative to the skin and spirit.

“I believe love is the most powerful healing tool available.” -Laurel Shaffer, Laurel Skin founder + skin-specific herbalist
Founded by skin-specific herbalist + plant communicator + engine of love Laurel Shaffer and located in a beautiful renovated barn in Petaluma, California, Laurel Skin is the culmination of Laurel’s winding journey filled with education, research, and extensive study that led to her path as a sommelier, and eventually skin-specific herbalist. Those formal training paths, as well as her experience in farm, spa, and mindful wellness, have made it possible for her to live the life of a slow beauty advocate and creator of farm-based and hyper-localized spa rituals and formulas. She walks a balance beam with one side in wonderment and appreciation of phytochemistry and the other a world of intuitive trust and respect for whole plant wisdom and ancient traditions. That balance allows her to create formulas of long-standing efficacy.
The Laurel Skin line is a ritualistic range of flower and herb-based skincare, formulated with impeccably sourced, highly vibrant whole plants picked at their peak for unmatched transparency, purity, and results. Firmly rooted in the principles and practices of slow beauty, Laurel’s first and most critical relationship is with the land. Her exclusive partnerships with local artisan farmers ensure the highest quality and most stringent transparency. Their mutual commitment to only 100% organic, raw, unrefined plant materials guarantees unparalleled freshness and efficacy. Laurel Skin believes beauty should be a loving self-care practice that begins and ends with mindfulness.
Leading the way with unparalleled sourcing, a commitment to farmers, and a mission built on transparency, the Laurel Skin line captures California’s hearty terrain and natural abundance in each and every bottle, and relies on their own manufacturing and production capabilities to ensure the freshest, most efficacious products are produced.
Every single whole plant they work with is certified organic or certified Biodynamic®, and they make no exceptions. Laurel Skin partners with artisan farms within 100 miles of their Lab to source all of the flowers and herbs that can grow in their California climate. They begin working with their partnering farms in the Winter during seeding and continue through to harvesting season when each plant is picked at their peak of vitality. Once the plants are harvested, they make their way to the Laurel Skin Lab where they are turned into plant medicine for the skin. Of course, each plant is processed as little as possible to maintain the freshness, purity, and vitality of each plant. Laurel extracts are made in-house, without the use of chemicals, to preserve the integrity and efficacy of the whole plant. All oils used in Laurel Skin creations are certified organic or Biodynamic®, raw, cold pressed, unrefined, and pressed fresh for Laurel by the farms that grow them or by artisan pressers. Their oils are richly hued and have an unmistakably fresh smell: indicators that they are pure and unrefined. Laurel uses only certified organic and Biodynamic® essential oils; many of which are distilled in incredibly small batches just for the Laurel line. Every hydrosol they use is certified organic or Biodynamic® and made exclusively for Laurel Skin by their artisan partnering farmers along the west coast.
Laurel Skin is committed to your health, well-being and, as a result, your beauty. Their commitment begins with the quality of the soil that nourishes and optimizes the ingredients they select. This is the foundation of slow beauty. The Laurel team then follows each ingredient from seed to harvest. Through the season it takes to grow their plants, to the months their handmade blends sit steeping, to the hours they spend bottling each batch, the Laurel Skin team practices slow beauty with patience and intention. Their greatest reward is knowing you feel this when you use their products.
