Resilience of Nature

Strength and beauty of balance.

Santa Fe and New York, seemingly opposite, both environments experience symptoms of stress - whether that be a desert drought or the strenuous pace of city living – there is something profound that keeps the beings in these places thriving.

It is the strength, beauty, and resiliency that prevails over the stress, working with the hardships to make flowers bloom in the desert, and creativity flourish in the city.

Using a balance of botanicals that are unique to dry, xeric landscapes and nutrient-rich plant oils from around the world, we consciously choose the natural elements that encourage your skin to thrive, stress-free, no matter the environment.
