Mugwort (artemisia vulgaris) is a bitter herb known to humanity since the Iron Age. The entire plant is decocted as a wash for wounds and ulcers internally and externally. She's traditionally used in herbalism for eczema, quickened wound healing, headaches, anxiety, and nightmares. As a light, silky cream, it sinks deeply into the skin to deliver her healing properties. The formula is rounded out with calming oatmeal protein, allantoin from the comfrey plant, and skin-similar niacinamide. This herbal face cream protects, plumps, and supports all skin types. 

Smooth, silicone-like skin feel that isn't greasy or waxy. Absorbs quickly for a matte finish. Light mugwort scent.


After cleansing, toning, and serum stage: gently rub a dime-sized amount in your hands to warm up cream. Swipe across face, neck, and hands and pat until fully absorbed. Suitable for use under makeup. Use AM and PM. Apply more often to speed up healing of razor bumps, cuts, and inflamed skin.

My small business is 100% vegetarian and cruelty-free! Some of my products contain locally- or ethically-sourced beeswax, but beeswax is not vegan. I only ship within the United States; nothing is sold in Mainland China or anywhere animal testing is required.
