MARFA MEDICINALS - THE EVERY SKIN SERUM
A serum formulated to help every skin reach its natural equilibrium, this blend of active botanicals works in tandem with your unique skin chemistry to optimize moisture levels, luminance, and clarity.
A light yet deeply hydrating base of jojoba, sweet almond, and soy nourishes dry skin while correcting overproduction of sebum. A double infusion of calendula decreases redness and irritation. Rosehip seed CO2 extract stimulates collagen production, fends of free radicals, and lightens sun spots to reverse signs of aging. Sea buckthorn encourages cellular renewal to prevent signs of aging. Lavender calms, sweet orange brightens, and geranium balances and prevents scars. The result is a product that both penetrates and protects, that will leave your skin vital, elastic, and radiant- even out here!
FOR: all skin types, even the most sensitive. Especially suited to dry and irritated skin.
APPLY: morning and evening to clean, damp skin. Mist skin with chosen floral water, then warm a few drops of serum between your fingertips. Inhale deeply to enjoy the aromatherapy aspects of this fresh, floral oil and massage lightly over face, neck, and décolletage using upward circular motions. Mist with toner, pat your face gently, and the oil will fully absorb.
**Marfa Medicinals is a collection of streamlined organic skin care. Our formulas are thoughtful and stripped down: we use a minimum of plant-based ingredients to maximum effect, creating products that are as efficient and as easy for the skin to assimilate as possible.
Our aim is to help every skin achieve its own unique balance. We do this by developing products that support rather than interfere with your skin’s natural functioning, which respect its individuality, it’s integrity, and it’s capacity for renewal. Instead of emphasizing cosmetic correction, we work hard to formulate products that equip your skin with the tools it needs to heal itself. We choose our ingredients very carefully for their ability to increase the rate of cellular turnover and decrease inflammation without disrupting the skin’s acid mantle.
Marfa Medicinals products are made without fillers. That means they don’t merely contain active botanicals - they are made up entirely of active botanicals. We develop all of our own formulas, blending and packaging each product by hand in micro-batches to ensure optimal freshness. Even our packaging is hand-stamped and hand folded!
Marfa Medicinals is developed in the high desert of far West Texas. Our approach to skincare is very much influenced by this arid climate- by the unrelenting sun, the biting winds, and withering dryness. In a place where it is nearly impossible to keep skin hydrated, where moisturizer appears to disappear instantly, where fine lines are exaggerated and chapped lips can seem incurable, we started making products tailored particularly to the the rigors of such a rough environment. That’s why you’ll find that our formulations emphasize feeding the skin over stripping it, and why so many of our products are in oil or salve form, as opposed to less nourishing foams and gels. This does not mean that our products are only suitable for desert climates; on the contrary, it means that if our products can keep skin healthy and glowing out here, they can do it anywhere!
Founder and formulator Ylana Frydman has been a Marfa resident since 2002, when she first began researching herbalism and developing her line of natural skin care.
