Blithe & Bright Moisturizer
What lies between blithesome optimism and dark despair? Plenty. But for the purpose of this introduction, let's imagine that it could be this moisturizer.
Blithe & Bright is a formulation that does not smother skin or sacrifice hydration. It is crafted with a trio of ceramides, niacinamide, and has no added fragrance (although it does have a slight scent from our other botanical ingredients). If you're after radiant, moisturized skin with a healthier skin barrier, you're in the right place.
"Niacinamide is a versatile skincare ingredient that’s beneficial for a wide range of skin concerns. It helps the skin produce more ceramides, ingredients that are essential for maintaining a strong and healthy skin barrier."
"Published research tells us that this vitamin works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, tighten lax or stretched out pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and diminish dullness."
"Ceramides are waxy lipids that can be found naturally in the outer layer of the skin. They play an important role in keeping the skin barrier healthy and the skin hydrated. Think of them as the mortar between your skin cells, forming a protective layer that limits moisture loss and protects against visible damage from pollution and other environmental stressors.
As skincare ingredients, ceramides can be derived from plants or bio-identical forms can be created synthetically. When used in skincare to help replenish what is lost (the amount of ceramides present in our skin naturally drops over time as we get older), they are known to improve skin barrier strength, hydration, and suppleness."
"The fragrant herb of buchu [pronounced boo-koo], which belongs to the Rutaceae family of flowers, has been used for centuries in South Africa. Buchu Leaf Extract is said to be helpful with reducing excess sebum, minimizing the appearance of large pores and mattifying shiny skin, thus improving the skin’s overall appearance and texture."
