Key Actives & Botanicals

plump & hydrate
Squalane is a natural supplement for one of the most important oils your skin produces to stay healthy and supple. Your skin will absorb this bioidentical oil as its own.
 

Hyaluronic Acid plumps and hydrates by holding up to a thousand times its weight in water! Together, these ingredients indulge your skin in much needed hydration.

renew & glow

Vitamin C is scientifically proven to brighten, reduce signs of photo-aging and stimulate cell renewal for firmer-looking skin. 

Niacinamide works to smooth, lock in moisture, and reduce discoloration, all while building strength and elasticity. 

Gluconolactone, a mild Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA), stabilizes the formula and promotes gentle exfoliation suitable for sensitive skin.

soothe & protect
Cold-brewing our Green Tea base doubles its antioxidant content, helping to protect skin from damage and pollution.
 
Green Tea also helps to reduce redness and irritation.
smooth & prime
We use natural plant sugars and phospholipids to create a luxurious glide and smoothness, without  the need for silicones. Plus they're hydrating!

 

Full Ingredients

Aqua, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Niacinamide, 3-Glyceryl Ascorbate, Glycerin, Squalane, Gluconolactone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopherol, Xanthan Gum, Lecithin, Sclerotium Gum, Pullulan, Phenoxyethanol*, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Citrate

* Phenoxyethanol is a safe preservative naturally found in green tea, but we use a synthetic version for consistency. This ingredient  protects the formulation against bacteria, yeast, and mold.

How to Use

Gently apply to clean skin after using Double Cleanser. For maximum hydration, apply while skin is still a little damp.

Some skin types may feel a mild stickiness immediately after application, but this will disappear after a few seconds and leave you with a smooth, no-slip base for sunscreen and makeup that lasts all day!

If you like, follow with All-Over Oil Balm for lips and areas of your skin that are prone to dryness, or blend Oil Balm directly into Gel Cream for a richer feel.

For daytime use, follow with a sufficient quantity of your favorite sunscreen.

wonderful face cream!

I really love this face cream! It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. It keeps my face moisturized all day. I struggle with perioral dermatitis and this cream has been wonderful and not caused any reaction.

Great!

This gem cream is incredibly hydrating. I have really dry skin and using this as my first step after washing my face has prevented itchy dry skin. I still use a moisturizer after but I feel like the gel helps a lot. It’s gentle and smells delicious!

Love!

Love this as a day cream; I agree with the underlying reviewer, people with drier skin (like me), you'll need something ontop like an lil/shea if you want to use this as a night cream...or if you have a retinol uglies... I love it right now in my morning routine, adding The ordinary's resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% for a super boost!

Repeat customer!

I absolutely love this line. It matches my values of supporting small, female owned business; cruelty free; refillable, natural, powerful ingredients; and great skin results! I highly recommend, and as the headline says -- I'm a repeat customer!

Wonderful Product and People Behind This Gel

This green tea gel cream is beautiful in all aspects which includes its packaging, ingredients, texture and effectiveness. It comes out jelly-like from the pump and bursts into a more fluid consistency that is easily spread onto your skin when rubbed between your hands or applied directly to the face. It is best to have your skin damp for increased hydration and ease of application. Although this is not oil-free, it does not make t-zones oilier nor does it feel greasy and heavy. Dry skin types will need another occlusive layer on top of this.

While using potent serums that contain vitamin c and niacinamide alone can irritate most people, I was able to apply this gel cream twice daily (AM/PM) as recommended without any problems despite my sensitive skin prone to redness. However, as everyone is different, do what works best for yourself. It has only been 7 weeks I have already noticed significant brightening to my skin so do be patient by consistently applying each day and it will be rewarded.

If you have concerns about sourcing, scientific studies regarding effectiveness of ingredients, if it affects malassezia, initiatives for the environment or anything, know you are in excellent hands. The owner is welcoming to questions and is quick to respond.
