Who is it for

Ideal for those living in heavily polluted cities, or for acne-prone skin that over-produces sebum but craves hydration and antioxidants. Also enjoyed by "normal"/temperate skin. 

Scent: Earthy and green, yet not over-powering and still light and fresh. Vetiver fan? You'll love this. 0.03% essential oil.
Texture: Liquid serum! Refreshing mist that leaves a hydrated, bouncy skin feel.

How to use

Use after cleansing skin, before moisturizing... or anytime you want a soothing, hydrating & protective burst! Reapply throughout the day, as required.
For scalp: Part hair in sections (where scalp is itchy) and apply 1 pump of Petrichor and massage in.

Apply your favourite facial oil afterwards (which is probably our City or Midnight!)) while skin is still damp for best results.


Ferulic acid, an incredibly potent antioxidant found in nearly every plant seed, boosts the effects of the other antioxidants, like the green tea extract, and the Oleuropein in the olive leaf extract... and some studies show may even work better in the presence of UV! (Be sure to wear SPF anyhow.)

Witch Hazel, native to eastern Canada, tones skin, helps reduce inflammation and irritation and makes pimples vanish quicker.

Aloe is an all-round skin superhero, with soothing and nourishing properties.

Green tea, rich in ECGC, is a great antioxidant and all-round do-gooder.
