For best results, we suggest keeping it simple with a 3-step routine. Choose a cleanser to cleanse and prime your skin, a spray to tone and hydrate, and a serum to moisturize and protect. If your skin is prone to sensitivity, the best practice for introducing any new skincare product is to first conduct a patch test or order our Discovery Trial Set.
1. Prepare your powder. Using your spoon, add equal parts powder and water into the bowl. The recommended ¼ tsp to ¼ tsp ratio will yield a thicker paste while adding slightly more water will yield a milkier paste. Play around to see which you prefer.
2. Prepare your skin. Using your dampened cleansing cloth, gently remove any makeup. Once fresh, leave skin feeling damp.
3. Apply. Using your fingers, apply product onto skin. The dampness will help the product spread beautifully. Work to cover your face and neck with a thin, slightly translucent layer of product for a mask and gently massage using circular motions for a cleanser.
4. Rinse. Using your cleansing cloth, gently rinse away your cleanser or mask to reveal visibly happier and hydrated skin.
After cleansing, close your eyes and lightly mist onto face and neck and let absorb without rubbing or massaging. Use however many spray pumps feels right for you. If following with Shield Face Serum, apply when your skin is still damp or wet from the essence spray.
Shield Face Serum: After cleansing and using our essence spray, dispense 2 to 4 drops of serum to your fingertips and gently massage into damp skin. Awaken Eye Serum: Gently roll around eye contour, avoiding contact with the eye.
While the length of time may vary depending on the individual, we have found in general that it takes about 2 weeks of daily use for skin to adapt and respond to our 100% active formulas.
Several elements make our skincare unique. First, For The Biome has spent considerable resources, time, research, and loving effort to formulate 100% active and effective skincare with ingredients that are ethically and sustainably sourced, cruelty-free, and organic. All aspects of our products, from the ingredients to packaging material, have been chosen with care and consideration.
Second, our products are specifically formulated to preserve and enhance the microbiome-skin relationship with the use of nature’s most talented communicators including prebiotics, probiotic lysates, fermented botanicals, and gentle botanicals. Our skincare supports the trillions of skin microbes who play a pivotal role in how skin adapts to stressors, both emotional and environmental. When crosstalk between the skin and its microbiome is supported, skin can reach its fullest potential, make educated responses to stressors, and naturally rejuvenate itself for radiance.
In addition, through the process of fermentation, the nutritional profile of our botanicals is enriched with increased antioxidant content, prebiotic nutrients, and postbiotic actives including skin-strengthening short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), peptides, and probiotic lysates. Condensing the molecular weight of nutrients through fermentation may increase absorption, biocompatibility, and efficacy.
We also choose ingredients processed with CO2-extraction, which yields botanical extracts with regal nutrient profiles and shelf-stability without the need for chemical preservatives.
