Benefits for Skin:

We have been talking a lot about our Organic Moisturizing Facial Serum lately and that's because we think its so amazing!!! However, we didn't want you to take our word for it so we decided to put "our ingredients were the science is." 
We found all the science backed research to back the skin loving ingredients in our serum.

Now there are some benefits that we might have mentioned in the past that are not listed here; and that's because no one has done extensive human research or experiments to verify the efficacy of the ingredients, even if the components exist in the herbs. For the purpose of this blog we decided to focus on researched backed benefits only.
