Nighttime Repair Serum - A Backstory

Nighttime Repair Serum - A Backstory

Back in 1986 when I started the process of creating the Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixirs, created to use under oils and primarily for nighttime renewal and balance, I did not foresee a time that I would create a Nighttime Serum.

Well… never say never! About two years ago I started investigating some plant nutrients that could be made into waters and extracts to feed the skin on the water saturation level we all crave. Many of these botanicals have a rich antioxidant profile unequaled in the pharmaceutical world for bioavailability where it counts.

I’m talking about the mainstream vitamins in many trendy skin care products including Vitamin C, K, A, amino acid peptides, stem cell therapy, and of course hyaluronic acid. 

The idea crossed my mind to create a non-lipid formula that would saturate the skin with free radical fighting nutrition while we slept. I wanted another process to compliment the daytime usage of the rich antioxidant oils we use to filter and protect our skin. 

Voila! The Nighttime Repair Serum was born. In standing with our Benedetta ethic of unifying ingredients with strategic purpose, this formula does not disappoint.

The Purpose: To feed the skin with bioavailable plant material that supports the skin while it repairs atmospheric damage during sleep.

The Foundation: By supporting the skin’s natural immunity and disarming cells from free radical degradation, the skin’s ability to repair and regenerate is pronounced. The skin recognizes clean unadulterated molecules from plant sources to penetrate and sustain the skin’s overall terrain. This said, a clean nourishing diet with fresh air and water is key to our largest organ’s sustainability. As all of our body’s cells, tissues, organs and systems work in unison to oxygenate one another and lead a healthy existence.
