Before using any skincare product, we recommend that you read the "warning" section below.
Your skin will become:
Deeply moisturized: Macadamia oil deeply nourishes your skin, contributing to the maintenance of its hydrolipidic layer. Its fatty acid composition is very similar to that of sebum, making it ideal for oily skin. It also repairs and regenerates skin cells to fight against aging.
Smoother and softer: Grape Seed oil combined withJojoba oil (which is similar to human sebum) helps regulate sebum production while nourishing your skin, refining its texture by removing dead cells and cleansing your pores.
Brighter: Sea buckthorn oil repairs and regenerates skin cells to fight against aging cells. Its healing and softening properties give a smooth and soft appearance to the skin. Thanks to its high level of carotenoids, your complexion becomes brighter.
Characteristics of oily skin
- The entire face is shiny;
- Has a dull complexion and dilated pores;
- Has a thick texture: fine lines and wrinkles are less pronounced and appear later;
- Is less vulnerable to external aggressors and stressors, although it may have some imperfections (like pimples and blackheads).
The skin can be both oily and lacking moisture.
In fact, oily skin overproduces sebum because it lacks moisture, compensating for its vulnerability to external elements (like wind, cold and pollution).
It is therefore important to properly moisturize oily skin with products suitable for its specific characteristics. Choose serums specifically formulated for oily skin that are non-comedogenic and have non-occlusive vegetable oils. Avoid cleansers and products that strip your skin of moisture—they alter the hydrolipidic layer of your skin, which stimulates the production of sebum to compensate for its deterioration. A vicious cycle of overproduction of sebum then sets in.
Directions for use
Apply 2 or 3 drops with your fingertips, morning and / or evening, depending on the needs of your skin.
You can also alternate with a treating serum as needed (morning: GAIA Serum and evening: "A" Serum, for example).
MORNING: Spritz some Geranium mist onto your face (2 to 3 spritzes). Then apply some GAIA serum (2 or 3 drops) to your entire face.
EVENING: Cleanse / remove make-up from your face with HYPNOS cleanser and then spritz some Geranium mist onto your face. Afterward, apply some GAIA serum or your usual serum.
You can also decide not to put anything on your skin overnight.
Note: If your skin doesn’t require serum at night, remember to dry your skin after spritzing a mist.

* Certified ORGANIC
We primarily select oils certified "organic" by ECOCERT, PRO CERT, QUEBEC VRAI or oils produced from "wild" plants, that is, plants grown on wild lands where they are not exposed to synthetic pesticides.
Obtaining organic certification is very expensive and some small local producers who work according to the standards of organic certification cannot finance this labeling. We work with trusted producers who are not certified but who respect traditional cultivation methods without the use of pesticides or chemical ingredients. In such cases, we make note of this on our product information pages.
All our products are free of synthetic fragrances and emulsifiers, dyes, synthetic preservatives (parabens, phenoxyethanol), GMOs and petrochemicals (mineral oils, paraffin, silicone, PEG). Not tested on animals.
WARNING (1): Although our treatments are formulated with natural and organic oils, it is your responsibility to consult the list of ingredients in detail to verify that it does not contain any plant or other substances to which you may be allergic. If you have allergies (including food allergies) to any plants used in one of our products, we recommended that you not use the product.
Before using any skincare product, we recommend that you first do a skin test: Apply 1 drop of the product to the crease of your elbow and wait 24 hours to verify that there are no allergic reactions.
