Balance Serum: Clarifying Relief is a moisturizer, treatment serum, and elemental defense oil, all in one. The lightest facial oil in the Laurel line, its rapid absorption is perfectly suited for skin that is oily or breakout prone. It restores balance to excess oil production, decongests pore build up, and dissolves impurities. As the name implies, it brings harmony and equilibrium to skin’s microbiome while calming and soothing irritation and active breakouts.
Formula Update: Our Balance Serum didn’t change much from its previous version. In fact, the ingredients are the same! However, we learned through our research that there were a few things we could adjust in terms of percentages and ratios to strengthen this formula. We increased the oils most responsible for barrier repair and functioning, as well as increased oils that were high in tannins and balanced omegas, making this product well-suited to all forms of dermatitis. This Serum is still the lightest in our line up, and perhaps even lighter than it was before. The essential oils have been reduced a bit, making this Serum smell slightly less medicinal than it did before. The essential oils that are present were chosen specifically for their balancing effect on oil production, the microbiome, and depleted nervous systems. The skin’s response to stress, and acne as a result of stress, is proven and becoming more recognized in the world of dermatology, so breathe deeply and be held by these plants.
