Inspired by a quest to use expert science in helping women of all ages to enhance their biological beauty, The Nourisher's simple, yet powerful formula enhances the natural beauty you have within through a dynamic blend of ingredients designed to enhance radiance and increase firmness. The ultimate result: skin is left feeling firm, hydrated and smooth, exhibiting an overall healthy glow.

"Building on the strong sales performance of the Revitalizer and with a growing consumer desire to use safe and sustainable beauty and skin care products with fewer ingredients, we stand by our skin care philosophy - less is more," said Caroline Hadfield, Amyris's Senior Vice President, Personal Care.

The Nourisher embodies this philosophy, utilizing just a few ingredients:
  • 100% sustainably-sourced, plant-derived squalane, a natural skin emollient that simulates a moisturizer found in our bodies that starts to decline as early as our 20's. The Nourisher's squalane acts as a barrier, protecting skin from moisture loss.
  • Chios crystal oil, extracted from crystal drops gathered from a tree native to the Greek island of Chios. This oil leaves skin firmer and more supple.
  • An oil-soluble form of vitamin C acts as a natural antioxidant, rejuvenating the skin while helping to fight free radicals. It is 50 times more powerful than ascorbic acid, leaving skin exceptionally radiant.

"This rose face oil is an ideal complement to our first celebrated Biossance™ product, The Revitalizer," added Hadfield. "And, once again, this new product aligns with our No Compromise® commitment to providing sustainable products that enhance women's biological beauty. Using Biossance products frees you from having to choose between something that is effective, safe and good for the planet."

Clinical validation tests conducted for The Nourisher have found that skin radiance is increased by 32%, 95% of women using the face oil agreed that skin suppleness and firmness were improved, and 91% reported that the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles was reduced.

About Biossance

Biossance pioneered the most sustainable 100% plant-based squalane in history to replenish your skin and enhance your biological beauty. Squalane simulates a moisturizer found naturally in our skin that can start to decline as early as our 20's. We created our squalane-based brand in response to the prevalent use of squalane derived from sharks as an emollient in cosmetic products. We won't compromise, so we've carefully selected our ingredients and avoid those that are potentially harmful to you or the planet.
