How To Use

1. Following daytime Restore or nighttime Adapt Essence Spray, apply 2-4 drops of serum to fingertips.

2.Gently massage onto damp skin. Now you’re glowing.

3. Take a moment, revel in nature’s protection, and allow serum to absorb, seal in moisture barrier, and fortify your shield.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Combine your serum and moisturizer into one simple step with this multi-correctional formula. Our red serum embodies the color of microalgae-derived astaxanthin and wild-harvested rosehip, leaving your skin with a reddish glow that absorbs and fades once massaged into the skin for a translucent, mattified finish. Ideally apply after using an essence spray, but in lieu of this, simply apply after cleansing when the skin is still damp.  

Allow 2 weeks of use for skin to neutralize any impurities and adapt to our 100% active formulas.

Astaxanthin

Israel

Astaxanthin is one of the most effective carotenoids in the natural world, superseding the bioactivity of vitamin C, E, CoQ10, and green tea catechins while delivering harmonious results. This natural guardian shields skin exposed to blue light radiation and empowers skin cells with inside out free radical defense for skin that appears smoother, brighter, and hydrated.  Sourced from the Arava desert using zero-waste solar technology, astaxanthin is produced in microalgae when their environment is exposed to stress. In the face of damaging UV radiation, the algae transform from green to red, and at this very moment, we extract astaxanthin and encapsulate the full spectrum of nature’s protection.

Chamomile

France

Sourced from an organic French farm, our German chamomile extract is rich in comforting bisabolols and soothing chamazulene. The answer to dry, flakey, and irritated skin, our unrivaled bisabolol content helps stimulate a restored complexion while amplifying nutrient penetration to the skin’s deepest layers. Collagen production is uplifted for skin that feels firmer while tranquility envelops cells exposed to environmental stress. Chamazulene offers its mystical calming gift to help ease discomfort and reinstate balance for improved appearance of irritations.

Coconut

Sri Lanka

With a delightfully delicate aroma, our coconut oil not only rounds out the decadent scent of our serum but balances our formula with a supply of medium chain triglycerides. These fatty acids are shorter than most other fats and are just as necessary for hydrated, healthy skin.

x

Marigold

Germany

One of nature’s strongest soothers, Calendula marigolds boost our protective formula with restorative and protective properties. The therapeutic nature of marigold delivers highly concentrated faradiol esters capable of helping accelerate renewal and soothe irritated skin for a comforted complexion. Skin is left fortified in the face of free radicals and is left feeling firmer, smoother, and hydrated.

x

Raspberry Seed

Germany

Red raspberry seed provides a symphony of phytonutrients and polyphenolic compounds that speak to damaged cells for a restored complexion. Not only helping restore the appearance of aging skin, raspberry seed can also help fortify skin’s natural defense against such challenges. Raspberry is nature’s answer to soothing the appearance of wrinkles and dehydration for skin that feels smooth and balanced.

Rosehip

Chile

Our wild-grown rosehip fruits and seeds are born in the isolated mountains of Chile and harbor the richest nutrient content of any berry in the world. Hand-picked by indigenous people, our process supports both a guaranteed salary for the local workers while ensuring optimal levels of barrier-fortifying linoleic and alpha linolenic acids, free-radical fighting antioxidants, and soothing vitamin E. Skin is noticeably softer, smoother, and bouncier after just one use of this dry oil, while long-term use can restore the look of wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and improve skin’s natural ability to retain moisture.

x

Sea Buckthorn

Pakistan

A hardy plant that is tolerant of air pollution, drought, and frost, sea buckthorn transfers its evolutionary wisdom directly to the skin and its microbiome. Our sea buckthorn fruit is bursting with fatty acids that were born to envelop skin. Relish in the rare and valuable palmitoleic acid, a natural component of the skin’s lipid barrier that is vital to a healthy complexion. This unique composition of fatty acids seeps to the deepest layers of the skin, enhancing transportation of barrier-fortifying nutrients.

Vanilla Plana.

Uganda

The aromatherapy of vanilla planifolia radiates and revitalizes the mind with mists of happiness and relaxation. Our unique choice of this potent orchid hails from Uganda, where it supports the local community, pays fair wages, and delivers a high concentration of blemish-fighting vanillin. Just as the vanilla vines twist around a tree, let this soothing spice envelop your spirit while antioxidants replenish skin texture and tone

Coffee

If you asked me six months ago what I couldn’t live without every morning the answer would’ve been coffee! Now I won’t leave the house without my Shield facial serum. My skin has never been softer and more radiant. Like so many other kind compassionate Americans I also wear a face mask every day. And My Shield facial serum has protected my skin so beautifully from the irritants and sometimes harsh fabric in the masks leaving my face looking and feeling just as fresh and radiant at the end of the day... I ❤️ this magical product

Can't live without

This is my new (well, I've now been using this for 6 months) go-to, cannot do without, facial protection. Along with ForTheBiome Essence Sprays - I vary these based upon my pscho-physical state - I truly feel that the protection provided by Shield is providing benefits not only for my skin on the surface, but supporting deeper, systemic overall health. Thank you for this beautiful formula.
