Who doesn’t like using a mist as part of their skincare regime nowadays? We use them as the step before using a face oil or serum, we use them during the day to refresh our faces or to cool us down during hot weather. A few years ago your average mist was composed of water [of course] and maybe a flower essence or two and which was lovely enough but they didn’t really deliver anything useful to the skin. I noticed this especially when I used them as part of my skincare travel kit – I’d use a mist a couple of times on a flight and seem to find my skin drier and this is because I was merely spritzing with water which would simply evaporate without doing anything to hydrate my skin.
More recently as skincare brands step up their game, we are benefitting from a mist that delivers so much more, thanks to the inclusion of ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid which is loved by many for its hydrating ability [it is proven to hold 1000x its weight in water] This gorgeous organic and vegan-friendly mist includes some seriously skin-boosting ingredients making it the perfect addition to your skincare collection. Wildcrafted Organics is a brand very committed to bringing the highest quality ingredients to use in their formulations – so that the products deliver tangible results. Nicole, the founder has a background in herbalism, having studied botanical medicine and nutrition, she is passionate about using Australia’s unique wild harvested botanicals.
What’s in it and why
Rose Otto Hydrosol ‘Super’ (Certified Organic) is produced using Bulgarian organic roses – firms and tones the skin, gently balances sebum production and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of the skin and it decreases as we age- we need it to keep our skin cells nice and plump, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Kakadu Plum Extract contains the world’s highest levels of bio-active Vitamin C – increasing collagen production while being slightly exfoliating.
Illawara Plum & Burdekin Plum Full of the strong antioxidants anthocyanins and Vitamin C. This extract has been shown to increase production of Hyaluronic acid and Collagen synthesis.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) improves the skin’s elasticity, enhances barrier function, promotes healthy skin tone and texture, prevents moisture loss and stimulates microcirculation.
PHA Gluconolactone PHAs or polyhydroxy acids are the second generation of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are chemical exfoliants. They are milder and unlike AHAs they do not increase sun sensitivity. PHAs fight glycation, which is a natural chemical process that weakens your skin’s collagen and elastin. PHAs are rich in antioxidants and they also stimulate epidermal growth and repair, meaning your skin will appear plumper and smoother.
