Sun Elixir - Face
Sun Elixir - Face
The human race evolved under the Sun and lived in harmony with its heat and light since the beginning. Just like a flower, a bird, we are nature itself and meant to have a healthier, wiser relationship with the Sun.
During the day, Sun emits different frequencies (colours) of light and these frequencies are essential for certain physiological processes in our bodies (Read more here). By using the latest scientific research and the centuries-old knowledge of plants, Sun Elixir is an invitation to establish an adaptable, flexible boundary that helps you receive the Sun's life-giving light while strengthening your skin's response to Sunlight and supporting the health of your skin microbiome.
HOW TO USE: Apply before and after sun exposure to strengthen your skin's response to Sunlight, repair damage, and reduce discolouration, uneven skin tone, redness, and discomfort felt after midday sun exposure with the help of whole plants full of life.

We believe in a return to nature, centred around a sustainable cycle where we should only take what we can give back. That’s why every Earth To You order starts and ends its journey as a seed in the soil.
With the intention of revitalising arid farmland, we donate a portion of each sale to a programme called the Forest Garden Approach. Run by a charity called Trees For The Future, the 4-year programme gives farmers the skills they need to sustainably support their communities and grow thousands of trees. Every seed planted helps to reverse environmental degradation, restore biodiversity, and remove megatons of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. But more than that, Forest Garden Farmers gain access to income and food for themselves and their families, breaking the cycle of poverty and hunger. Just as the earth gifts us with healing and nourishing herbs and botanicals, we must give back and do what we can to protect the soils we come from. This sustainable approach to re-forestation brings valuable nutrients back to the soil, breathing new life and hope into over-farmed and arid lands.
Ingredients & Plant intelligence
Bilberry leaf and fruit (Vaccinium myrtillus) – This botanical is rich in antioxidant phenolic acids, which studies show have a UV B sun-blocking capability (without being harmful to the skin microbiome). These include petunidin, malvidin, and resveratrol.
Calendula flower (Calendula officinalis) – Already a popular ingredient being added to natural botanical sunscreens, research shows calendula has sun protective factor on top of being good for conditioning skin.
Comfrey leaf (Symphytum officinale) – Comfrey is well-established as a skin- and tissue-healing plant, as it can help jump-start the healing process in the body. Studies show that it can protect living things from UV damage. Contains allantoin, known to be its active ingredient and compound for skin healing and protection.
Grape seed oil (Vitis vinifera) – Thanks to its naturally occurring antioxidants, studies show grape seed could protect human skin cells from sun damage, especially when combined with other botanical ingredients (it enhances their effects, and they enhance grape seed's). Contains oligomeric proanthocyanidins, powerful skin-healing antioxidants.
Green tea leaf (Camellia sinensis) – This Asian tea is so rich when it comes to healing antioxidants: like EGCG, L-theanine, and more. Like other plants with antioxidants, green tea, too, can provide a natural shield against the effects of the sun and UV rays, according to research.
Olive oil (Olea europaea) – Also a treasure trove of plant antioxidants, studies show that topical use of a high-quality, high-grade olive oil can reduce the risk of cancers on the skin after sun exposure in animals, thanks to the free radical-fighting activity.
Pomegranate oil (Punica granatum) – Pomegranate fruit extract, when used on the skin, protects it against UV A and UV B radiation and reduces cellular death, according to research. It also has an anti-inflammatory skin-healing effect thanks to one of its active antioxidants, delphinidin.
Pumpkin seed oil (Cucurbita moschata) – High in antioxidant tocopherols and phenols. In one study, a mixture of pumpkin seed oil and other natural ingredients was used to support and enhance the effects of a UV protector. It was effective at enhancing the UV-protective qualities of other ingredients.
Sea buckthorn fruit and oil (Hippophae rhamnoides) – An incredible botanical, sea buckthorn was tested in one piece of research that showed it stopped disturbances in the skin caused by UV rays— and also restored skin health balance. It has long been an antioxidant-rich healing plant (containing linoleic acids) popular in the folk medicine ways of Turkey, China, and Russia.
Cranberry fruit – Contains skin-quenching antioxidants quercetin and resveratrol, which can provide additional sun protection.
Elderberry fruit – Contains cyanidin, a free radical and wrinkle-fighting antioxidant.
Parsley leaf – Contains apigenin, a healthy plant antioxidant.
Raspberry seed oil – Rich in antioxidants in all parts of the plant, great for healthy ageing of the skin
Witch hazel leaf – Contains oligomeric proanthocyanidins, powerful skin-healing antioxidants, as well as astringent tannins that help tone and cleanse the skin.
Rosehip seed oil – Contains vitamin C, beneficial for skin health and regular collagen production (supports supple and youthful skin)
Jojoba oil – Mimics the nature of human sebum closely, thus a great natural ingredient for helping balance and restore the skin microbiome.
Sesame seed oil – Naturally rich source of vitamin E

Embrace the powers of nature rather than fight against it.
