Apis Apotheca Calm-C Illuminating Vitamin C Balm


This is a very special nature-meets-science hybrid product. It is a rich yet lightweight blend of organic New York state grown hemp seed oil and raw organic shea butter with the steam distilled blue extract of chamomile, blended with a fat-soluble, highly stable form of Vitamin C that rapidly fades hyperpigmentation, heals scarring, boosts collagen, and gives an undeniable glow. With a finishing touch of our whole frankincense extract, we have been shocked at how quickly and effectively this blend tames inflammation and evens skin tone.

  • Suggested Use: Massage small pea-size (or less) amount over entire face and neck after cleansing, misting, and applying serum. It can be used as a light moisturizer in and of itself or as a solid serum before a richer final moisturizing step.
  • Ingredients: cold pressed NYS grown hemp seed oil, shea butter, steam distilled extract of chamomile, Ascorbyl palmitate, Frankincense whole resin, jojoba oil, chamomile essential oil, local unbleached beeswax
  • About the maker: Aviva Skye Tilson, the creator, comes from a background in farming and is a certified community herbalist. She has her own farm in Germantown where she grows most of the products used for infusions and distillations. Her slogan is "farm to face skincare". If she does not grow the product herself, she strives to use local producers when ever possible and her products are labeled accordingly.
