Mist your way to dewy, hydrated skin any time of day: This moisturising spray harnesses the anti-aging, cellular-energizing superpower of snow algae extract to reinforce the skin barrier and stimulate its defense and energy system. Healing, antioxidant-rich vitamin E and plant-sourced glycerin, a universally tolerated humectant that binds water to the skin for lasting hydration, are blended into a complexion-boosting base of coconut water and soothing aloe. Combined with our signature Céla Complex, a protective blend of Canadian botanicals (blueberry, elderberry, evening primrose, juniper berry, rosemary and lavender), the Essential Face Mist effectively calms stressed skin, leaving you feeling hydrated and refreshed.
This single-cell algae grows on glaciers and permanent snow, thriving in polar and Alpine climates by producing stress-response molecules with remarkable anti-aging and barrier-protecting skincare benefits. While smoothing and moisturising, snow algae extract works at the cellular level, stimulating production of collagen, the longevity gene Klotho, as well as AMPK, the master-switch enzyme responsible for regulating cells’ energy and defense systems.
Use of this stemless succulent can be traced as far back as ancient Egypt, when it was referred to as the “plant of immortality”. The pulp extracted from the aloe plant’s thick leaves is rich in water and polysaccharides, as well as anti-inflammatory sterols. In addition to promoting skin hydration, aloe has been shown to accelerate healing of wounds and burns.
The body produces its own reserve of vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant essential for healthy skin due to its ability to absorb UV light, reducing damage from free radicals, as well as its anti-inflammatory qualities. As it is susceptible to depletion via environmental exposure, it is beneficial to compensate for the loss via topical application.
Gently shake the bottle, then spritz onto your freshly cleansed face and neck with your eyes closed, prior to the application of our Essential Face Moisturiser. Reapply whenever you desire a boost of hydration, whether on bare skin or overtop makeup.
Mist your face after applying your foundation, prior to the application of powder products, once more as a light setting spray once your makeup is complete, and as needed to refresh throughout the day.
