Meet beauty’s most inclusive luxury serum. Whimsy Official's Halcyon Botanic Serum is the first clean beauty serum formulated to mirror the skin’s natural oil production (sebum) while providing a full spectrum of protective vitamins and nutrients. This golden-hued, silky-textured serum is formulated with 8 pure, cold-pressed botanicals that work in tandem to purify pores, deeply penetrate with long-lasting hydration, reduce redness and inflammation, and naturally slow down the speed of aging via rich antioxidants and omega 3s and 6s. Our regenerative, skin-balancing facial serum is allergen-free, vegan, cruelty-free, low comedogenic, all natural, and compatible for all skin types, ages, and seasons.
When we say inclusive, we mean inclusive. Halcyon Botanic Serum is safe and effective for everyone, including those with sensitivities to the top 8 allergens, those with problematic skin, and women who are pregnant and/or nursing. We've taken the time to learn and understand real life problems so that we can deliver honest solutions. Our '3 Official Pillars' redefines the standard of clean, sustainable beauty by creating a kinder approach to supporting our skin's natural function.
The 3 Official Pillars
01. Free from essential oils + absolutes
While plant-derived extracts offer tantalizing scents for skincare, it can often cause underlying issues such as deterioration of the skin's acid mantle (protective outer barrier). Since essential oils and absolutes are highly concentrated forms of natural fragrance, even small amounts can cause damage to the skin when used for an extended period of time. When the skin's acid mantle is disrupted, it damages the skin's ability to fight off free radicals and UV A/B rays. Essential oils and absolutes can cause dryness, excess oil production, and allergic reactions disguised as blemishes.
02. Free from unsafe comedogenic levels
The comedogenic scale determines the propensity an ingredient has to cause breakouts or clog the pores (the scale ranges from 0-5 with 5 being the most likely to cause breakouts). Ingredients such as coconut oil (also known as capric/caprylic triglycerides on INCI lists) are very high on the comedogenic scale, and over time may severely clog pores and restrict proper hydration and airflow to the deeper layers of the skin. Even when immediate breakouts do not occur, clogged pores cause bacteria and excess oil to remain inside the pores, encouraging breakouts to happen later on. Halcyon Botanic Serum is a 2 on the comedogenic scale, making it safe to use on the skin, even in abundance.
03. Free from allergens
Halcyon Botanic Serum is free from all the top 8 allergens – even nuts, gluten, and soy. Even when an individual does not have allergy concerns, using skincare containing an allergen can be dangerous to friends and family members who do. Our allergen-free formula is safe for all individuals and eliminates cross contamination entirely.
How to use: In the AM and PM, apply 4-5 drops into the palms of your hands, rubbing together to warm serum. Carefully press onto the face and décolleté, covering all areas. Pat 1-2 drops around the eye and mouth areas, also covering lashes and eyebrows for conditioning and strengthening.
Kalahari Watermelon Oil: Rich in fatty alpha-linolenic acid, allowing it to act as a cleansing, pore-unclogging agent for the skin. Helps pores to receive moisture and nourishment from other oils.
Rose Hip Seed Oil: Rich in vitamin A which helps to smooth texture of the skin.
Jojoba Oil: Helps to repair scarred, damaged skin while reducing dryness and creating a smooth, protective barrier due to the liquid, waxy contents.
Camellia Seed Oil: An ultra-light, omega 3- and omega 6-rich oil known in Japan as Tsubaki. This delicate, luxurious oil is widely used in Asian skincare because of its ability to absorb quickly and preserve youthfulness.
Apricot Oil: Reduces fine lines and wrinkles through high levels of vitamins E and C, helping the skin to produce collagen naturally
Strawberry Seed Oil: Contains powerful antioxidants which naturally brightens the appearance of the skin
Borage Oil: Calms redness and improves discoloration in the skin. Can help to reduce inflammation. Used as an active ingredient to treat rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions.
Carrot Seed Oil: Cold-pressed to preserve the naturally occurring high levels of vitamin A, C, and E. Aids in repairing sun damage and helps produce collagen for a full spectrum of anti-aging effects. The high level of antioxidants helps to naturally preserve the serum while also acting as a natural, chemical-free retinol formula for the skin.
