How to Use
Apply oils after the skin has been cleansed and toned. Lighter water-based serums should be applied before oils or mixed together.
• Start by gently shaking the bottle to activate the concentrate.
• Dispense onto the palm. The amount needed will differ from a few drops to a dropper full based on individual skin condition and climate. Use a light hand when introducing into a regimen, starting with just 3 to 5 drops and adjust to the desired amount based on skin feedback.
• Bring fingers from the free hand together with the oil so it is dispersed on both hands. The palm will serve as the passive-smoothing instrument while the fingers provide more targetted massage for optimal absorption.
• Press palm on cheeks and forehead and use fingers to gently massage skin in upward motions moving away from the center of the face.
• Pay attention to press the oil into fine lines, wrinkles, and areas prone to dryness.
• Massage along temples and jawline, the oil serves as a conduit to ease tension and lift stress.
• Use daily morning and evening, or as a super-charged serum when skin needs a boost from regular oils.
Use within 8 months of opening for optimal freshness.
Select Key Actives
• Bio-Retinol Complex: A full-spectrum bioactive retinol complex to accelerate collagen production, speed up epidermal cell renewal, increase repair and boost skin's natural renewal process. Naturally derived using the antioxidant-retinol analog to mitigate risks of skin irritation, volatility, and photo-sensitivity. These food-grade Vitamin A derivative retinol analogs are entirely bio-available so they're fully absorbed by the skin without irritation or downtime.
• Omega-Lipid Complex rich in Essential Fatty Acids and ceramides is deeply restorative and replenishing. Necessary for supplemental skin barrier and tissue health, our omega-lipid complex is engineered with the optimal ratio of omega 3, 6, & 9 to improve moisture retention, soften fine lines, calm inflammation, prevent UV aging, and rejuvenate skin. Shown to prevent collagen loss and stimulate new cell growth. The essential fatty acids in this complex neutralize inflammation that ages skin and energizes cell metabolism.
• Supercritical Rosehip Seed a high-potency concentrate that regenerates and repairs. Rich in trans-retinoic actives and carotenoids extracted from the nutrient-dense seed to create a non-irritating, natural, high-potency form of retinol to improve skin appearance and supercharge epidermal regenerative processes. Assists with repair from sun damage, aging, fine lines, and scars. Supercritical extraction preserves the full spectrum retinoic properties and unlocks the full potential of Rosehip Seed's transformative nutrient profile.
• Frankincense, Rose, and Helichrysum multitask to restore collagen and elasticity, repair damaged cells, and target melanin synthesis to improve skin clarity. Skin density is restored, its texture is tightened, as the composition is improved.
• Bio-ferment Tamarind Seed Infusion: A bio-ferment rich in polysaccharides especially advantageous in significantly improving skin elasticity, hydration, and smoothness. Provides an active plant-delivery compound bio-identical to skin’s natural hyaluronic acid to restore moisture and smooth fine lines. Studies indicate this compound outperforms hyaluronic acid in moisture retention, skin plumping action, and long term hydration. This plant bio-ferment effectively penetrates deeper into the dermal layers than hyaluronic acid isolates to replenish the depleted viscous gel layer commonly found in dehydrated skin. Also promotes wound healing and self-correction of damaged or problematic skin cells.

Frequently Asked Questions
As the most nourishing of the serums, will this cause congestion?
Great question! Modern Alchemist is non-comedogenic, as it's very important to us that our formulas help the skin properly function without being weighed down.
While the ingredients provide deep nourishment that can satiate dry/mature skin needs, it should not cause congestion.

Can I apply Modern Alchemist around my eye area?
We recommend a careful hand when applying oil-format serums around the eyes to prevent them from travel.
