Nurturing face oil designed for very sensitive, reactive, and hormonally-challenged complexions / .7 fl oz
de Mamiel Phyto-P Elixir is a nurturing blend of soothing, nutrient-rich oils specifically chosen to restore calm to skin as it undergoes hormonal shifts.
Revered skincare therapist Annee de Mamiel created this beautiful facial oil to address skin’s needs during a variety of challenging moments — perimenopause and menopause; pregnancy and breastfeeding (it’s suitable after the first trimester of pregnancy); and even during times in monthly cycles when skin can be fussier than usual. Its calming effect makes it a wonder on sensitive skin, too.
Phyto-P’s base oils were chosen specifically to calm sensitive skin, support a healthy skin barrier, and nourish a range of skin types. In its blend, you’ll find nourishing sea buckthorn, borage, and rose hip, which create a rich texture without heaviness. Annee also added bisabolol to help calm sensitized skin; bacillus ferment, a probiotic peptide, helps support skin’s microbiome and reinforces the integrity of its barrier.
Phyto-P Elixir has a much lower concentration of essential oils than de Mamiel’s Seasonal Oils, and it’s an absolutely beautiful blend that adds just enough scent to the application experience (uplifting benzoin, balancing rose geranium, rejuvenating frankincense, and calming chamomile flower).
We adore Annee’s seasonal oils, too, but we’re happy that we can use this one year-round — its calming scent, beautiful texture, and soothing effect will always feel right.
Annee says: “I wanted to create a facial oil that tackled ALL the problems faced by hormonal skin, as well as being the perfect partner for menopause and pregnancy-related skin issues. I’m so excited to introduce the new Phyto-P Elixir, your new secret weapon targeting super sensitized, reactive, and unbalanced complexions.”
