Q + A with Amber Woods, Founder of Pink Light Botanicals
When/how do you love to use the product?
I’ve been using this product every single day for 8 years. I personally love to use it AM and PM as a moisturizer after cleansing, toning, and using one of our water based serums (Rose Petal Dew AM, Midnight Dew PM), but it works well on its own too on top of a spritz of toner or hydrator. It’s an ideal moisturizer and it also offers cellular renewal and protection & healing from sun damage. I call it a tonic, because using this product daily can actually improve and strengthen your skin over time. I recommend placing desired amount in your palm and rubbing hands together and using your whole hand to massage well onto a damp face, neck, and décolleté. I use ½ to 1 ½ dropperfuls depending on the season (usually more during dry times), but it’s great to experiment to find the amount that works best for you. Feeling too oily means you may be using too much, feeling too dry means you may not be using enough. Massaging it in well helps with absorption too.
What inspired the product/ingredients?
I wanted to create a product that would make you want to care for your skin by being extremely effective and also creating an extremely pleasant daily experience. I wanted to create something that would make you want to touch and massage your face to get the circulation moving, and something that makes you glow.
How long has it been part of the line?
This product launched in 2011.
Can you give us some insight on the ingredient formulation process?
When designing and formulating this product, I wanted a multi-tasker that could moisturize, protect, renew, and essentially work like a tonic, as mentioned above, to improve the health of the skin over time. I chose a blend of oils that would cover all of those bases, as well as whole organic Calendula Flowers and Comfrey Leaves infused into the formula. These two plants are famous for their healing skin medicine, and are able to repair and regenerate skin and heal wounds. Rose Otto, not only offers the most heavenly scent, but also sedates inflammation and increases product absorption. Essences of Gold and Diamond create a catalyst for healing and uplifting your energy to bring more self love to your skin care routine.
What is the star ingredient in the product and why?
Though every ingredient in this formula is incredibly skin healing, one I’d like to highlight is Unrefined Sunflower Oil infused with farm-grown Comfrey Leaves and Calendula Flowers. This oil is so healing and so compatible with most skin. Sunflower Oil in its unrefined form is so naturally rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acid, which work to reduce inflammation and renew skin cells. Infused with Comfrey and Calendula, which are wound healing, soothing, and antibacterial, it becomes doubly healing.
