Black Locust Firming Concentrate
With an intoxicating scent of exotic feminine florals dancing with the earthy-mossy palette Earthwise Beauty is known for, this versatile concentrate (it can be used by itself day or night, or dosed with a few drops mixed into your favorite moisturizer or oil) is as much of a sensory delight as it is effective.
With its foundation of scientifically studied and ethically sourced bakuchiol extract from the Ayurvedic babchi herb that has received a lot of attention as a safe natural replacement for retinol and has been shown to improve aging skin and to cause a significant improvement in acne, as well as two types of extracts from the wildflower white lupine, this thicker oil-serum delivers a wide spectrum of vitamins, essential fatty acids, and phytonutrients for firmer, more elastic, and thicker skin.
Uniting in beautiful harmony with these powerful ingredients are vitamin E- and carotenoid-rich sea buckthorn berry to help even skin tone, brighten, and calm; calendula to help soften skin, balance, deeply regenerate, and brighten; acai berry to help reduce acne and soothe the skin; and kalahari melon seed oil to provide expansive hydration and help acne-prone skin thrive.

Founded by herbalist, flower essence practitioner, and studying aromatherapist, Ava Zhan, Earthwise Beauty was built upon a lifetime love of skincare products and immersion in nutritional and herbal healing, homeopathy, and aromatherapy.
When she lived in New York City in her early 20s, she worked at a book publisher and would create products in the evenings with ingredients from the local health food store. Soon her coworkers were begging her to make products for them, and her nights were filled to the brim with crafting products. And, so, the spark for Earthwise Beauty was born.
Now with a deep focus on freshness, purity, quality, and luxury, and based in Spokane, Washington, Earthwise Beauty has evolved into a small-batch, organic skincare line based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients with a commitment to preserving the life force contained within the plants. And sourcing is paramount: Ava has close partnerships with organic gardeners, two beekeepers, and a small handful of essential oil and hydrosol suppliers and distillers (who are all dedicated to authenticity, purity, freshness, and organic and sustainability standards). Earthwise Beauty also stays focused on their pro-environment practices and fair trade commitment, and their passion for sustainability informs everything they do: from ingredient selection and product development to packaging and shipping materials. They also have set up an ongoing quarterly donation program to nonprofit organizations that not only spread the word about man-caused damage to the planet earth, its climate, and its fauna and flora, but that have the know-how to effect real changes.
