Finding Balance Face Serum

$22.00


Chia seeds aren't just glitter for your smoothie bowl - they contain a fabulous and skin loving oil as well! Our cold pressed and organic chia seed oil is loaded with high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients. When applied to skin it helps regulate sebum while the zinc and B vitamins make it perfect to level out surface oils. It also has a wonderful balance of linoleic acid (omega-6) at 12-23% to oleic acid (omega-9) at 5-12% which makes it especially beneficial to oily or problematic skin.

We spike this serum with organic castor oil. Castor oil is incredibly viscous and gets overlooked because of it's thick and sticky touch. However, if you've ever tried castor oil packs, or used it as a hair treatment, you probably don't need much convincing that it is amazing. This oil is calming, soothing, hydrating, and wonderful at cleansing thanks to its high ricinoleic acid content. By adding this impressive oil along with ylang ylang essential oil to our Finding Balance serum, we've made oily skin's worst nightmare in a bottle.

Three mindful and purposeful ingredients:
•Organic Chia Seed Oil
•Organic Castor Oil
•Pure Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

To use, apply 1 to 3 pumps of serum to clean hands and gently massage into clean skin. This serum is perfect for day or night use.

This 1 ounce glass bottle with a treatment pump will yield over 280 pumps (seriously, we counted, it was brutal). That's about 3 months worth assuming daily use of no more than 3 pumps.

As with any product containing essential oils, always check with your doctor if you are pregnant or have a medical condition before use.

The Granola Goat is proud to be registered with Leaping Bunny and PETA as cruelty free! All of our products are vegan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are all of your products vegan and cruelty free? How do you know your suppliers aren’t testing on animals?

YES! All my products are certified vegan AND cruelty free by PETA. The Granola Goat is also certified cruelty free by the Leaping Bunny program. I care about this deeply and if I cannot verify my suppliers are cruelty free via their own literature, I contact them to make sure.

Where do you get your ingredients?

I source from major companies as well as small and indie businesses when possible. I love to buy directly from the farm, producer, or maker but if I must purchase through a distributor, I choose companies who have a reputation to protect. All the essential oils I use are grown without pesticides, synthetic chemicals, herbicides, gmo's, harmful chemicals or fertilizers. I will never purchase cheap products from suspect suppliers, no matter what their claims are. Saving a dime is not worth putting old or adulterated ingredients in my bottle and on your skin. I want you to be healthier, and safer when it comes to your beauty choices.

Are your products recommended for sensitive skin?

Oh yes. You might find that the culprit behind the burning and itching your face feels when using certain products is the preservative. Products containing water must be preserved to inhibit bacterial growth. If you have sensitive skin, you might just need to avoid preservatives.

Your ingredients lists are pretty short. Why don’t you put more stuff in your stuff?

Keeping it simple is kind of my thing. I believe in getting the full benefit from few as opposed to minimal benefit from many. If you want to go crazy and get lots of ingredients at once, mix some of my products. It’s not unheard of for me to sport a face mask that was mixed with the last little bit of three different jars. My serums play well together if you want to mix them (Brighter Days and Keep Calm are glorious together!), and we even love to combine a little makeup removing oil with serum for a nice oil cleanse.

Are all the ingredients listed in the product descriptions?

Absolutely! There are no hidden ingredients, no undisclosed use of solvents like hexane (because I don't use solvent extracted oils at all), no preservatives, and nothing disguised.
