The Science Behind Our Unique Phospholipid Delivery System

The Science Behind Our Unique Phospholipid Delivery System

Shiitake, Chamomile, Gogi, and Acai. You'll see them in other botanical brands, but you probably won't see them in the unique way Telluride Glow organically delivers them, as dehydrazomes.

Imagine a skincare solution that not only moisturizes but works intelligently with your skin to reduce fine lines, enhance serum absorption, and prevent moisture loss, resulting in plumper and intensely hydrated skin.

Understanding this takes a little science to speak, so we'll try to break it down in the section below. This is where the science comes into organic skincare, and hope you find it as fascinating as we do!

You can find these plumping actives in our Purist Delicate Skin and Alpine Phytonutrient Serum so that you can experience the transformative power of our dehydrazomes for yourself.

When dehydrasomes are applied to the skin, the hydrophilic (dissolvable) portions of the phospholipids naturally migrate to hydrophilic environments where they assemble into a multi-vesicular system that communicates with lipid exchange. 

This moisture causes these vesicles to swell and minimizes the appearance of fine lines by plumping the skin.

Because the vesicles penetrate the stratum corneum (deep into nooks and crannies) and bind with the moisture present, they can inhibit trans‐epidermal water loss (TEWL) to increase moisturization.

In addition to swelling capacities, dehydrasomes enhance the delivery of all additional active extracts.

Our unique phospholipids:

Phospholipids form the structural basis of dehydrasomes, creating vesicles that mimic the natural lipid bilayers of skin cells. This biomimicry allows dehydrasomes to merge effortlessly with the skin's barrier, ensuring a more efficient and targeted release of encapsulated actives into the skin. 

Corthellus Shiitake (Mushroom) Dehydrasomes

Shiitake Dehydrasomes consists of certified organic phospholipids dispersed in biomimetic-certified organic sunflower oil. Shiitake Mushroom extracts are credited with boosting life force energy or “qi” while preventing premature aging.

Dehydrazome Organic Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria)

We combine Shiitake with Dehydrazome Organic Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract in The Purist Delicate Skin Serum to utilize the potent nutritive benefits of Shiitake with the soothing, calming properties of Chamomile, rich in flavonoids that provide antioxidant protection.

Dehydrazome Goji (Lycium barbarum)

Our red goji berries originate in the Nepalese mountainside. These berries are rich in carotenoids, and contain more beta‐carotene than carrots!

Dehydrazome Organic Acai (Euterpe oleracea)

Acai berry extracts are rich in healthy fatty acids, Vitamin A, Iron, and Calcium. Combining certified organic acai with Goji extracts in The Alpine Phytonutrient Serum allows us to harness the nutritive benefits of the fruit.

The Purist Delicate Skin Serum For Your Eyes

The Purist Delicate Skin Serum For Your Eyes

It seems many of us have been searching for the best eye cream, seemingly our entire life, trying dozens of brands at every price point.

The Purist Delicate Skin Serum was formulated to revitalize the face and also happens to be the best solution we’ve experienced to moisturize the delicate eye area and diminish fine lines and dull, rough areas.

Our anhydrous formula softens crow’s feet and helps reduce dark under-eye circles, firms, and tones like nothing else. It's also the best for reducing puffiness to brighten the skin around the eye area and prepare for concealer or makeup application.

Why an oil vs an eye cream?

"Oils serve a similar function to traditional eye creams; however, they use an oil vehicle and often contain all-natural and botanical ingredients," says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, a dermatologist at Zeichner Dermatology in New York City.

"Eye oils do not contain water or water-based ingredients," says Dr. Hadley King, a dermatologist at Day Dermatology & Aesthetics in New York City."If you're prone to puffiness, an eye oil could be your best bet over a cream." And we've added Arnica Montana flower from Alpine meadows to further combat puffiness.

Don't be afraid of plant oils

"Oil" used to be a dirty word in skincare, because no one wants to appear greasy. Today's beauty industry has come around to oils, realizing that it's not about cutting out all oils, but rather about using the right ones. Beauty brands and shoppers alike decided to ditch mineral oil and petroleum products and their pore-clogging ilk, instead turning to lighter, antioxidant-rich versions, many of which absorb so quickly they feel "dry" to the touch in seconds.

The Purist Delicate Skin Serum

The Purist Delicate Skin Serum was formulated for sensitive skin, which makes it ideal for the eye area because it is free from all potential irritants that could leave the eye area red or contribute to dark circles.

This serum is the epitome of anti-aging antioxidant nectar with Pomegranate, arctic Cranberry, Camellia, Hemp, Nepalese Goji, and natural Vitamin E from Sunflowers.

Why we love The Purist 

  • When used only for the eye area, it uses such a minuscule amount that a bottle should last a year or more.
  • Subtle honey-vanilla scent.
  • Hardworking yet free from fragrance allergens, essential oils, photo-sensitizers, gluten, alcohol, and nuts.
  • No synthetic fragrance, synthetic colors, T.E.A., D.E.A., glycols, silicones, PEGs. Ethoxylate, Formaldehyde, or any harmful or controversial ingredients.
  •  No balling up under makeup.
  •  One product for two solutions: face and eyes in one swoop.
  •  Smooths the skin so concealer goes on evenly.
  •  100% lightweight, unprocessed, noncomedogenic seed oils for fast absorption.

How to use The Purist as an eye serum

 Gently dispense half a drop from the pipette of the Purist Travel Size. Or, if you’re using our full-sized Purist bottle, use slow pressure to release half a drop onto your finger tips. dispense half a drop from the pipette. Massage under the eye for daytime, and over the entire eye area at night until it disappears. Night-time is your skin's chance to recover and repair. If you don't use eye makeup, then it's fine to use over the lid area for daytime as well. If you've used too much, keep spreading and massaging to treat more areas. 

One and done

We believe in effortless skincare; isn't it nice to take care of your eyes with the same product that rejuvenates your face? If you are already using the Purist to revitalize the face, don't be afraid of the eye area. And if you haven't tried Telluride Glow and are looking for a better eye treatment, this may be it.

Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Oil for Skin Rejuvenation

Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Oil for Skin Rejuvenation

Sea buckthorn is a super-nutrient oil revered in skincare for its unparalleled ability to enhance skin radiance, boost hydration, and combat premature aging. 

This "liquid gold" is not an oceanic extract but a precious yield from the Sea buckthorn shrub, thriving in the lofty realms of the Himalayas. 

Meticulously extracted via mechanical cold pressing from Sea buckthorn berries ensures a potent blend of omegas essential for skin health.

A jewel in traditional medicine

Rooted in centuries-old wisdom, Sea buckthorn has been a cornerstone in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) since the Tang Dynasty (618-907 C.E.), cherished for its holistic health benefits. 

Its Latin name, Hippophae rhamnoides, meaning 'shiny horse,' hints at its historical use for enhancing the vitality and coat health of horses, a testament to its nourishing properties.

Omega-rich rejuvenation

The secret behind Sea buckthorn oil's remarkable skin benefits lies in its comprehensive fatty acid profile, encompassing omega-3, 6, 7, and 9, making it a unique botanical source of all four essential omegas. 

These lipids are pivotal in moderating the skin's inflammatory response, which is crucial since chronic inflammation is a precursor to premature aging and DNA damage. 

The anti-inflammatory properties of Sea buckthorn oil not only soothe the skin but also protect it against the ravages of time, promoting a youthful, vibrant complexion.

Beyond inflammation control, these fatty acids facilitate deep skin penetration, promoting regeneration, collagen production, and renewal. This action is critical for epidermal recovery and helps minimize the look of scars. 

Omega-9, for instance, enhances the skin's absorption of other beneficial compounds, whereas omega-6, converted into prostaglandins, plays a vital role in skin recovery and nutrient transport.

A standout feature of Sea buckthorn oil is its omega-7 content, a rarity in the plant kingdom, known for boosting keratinization, telomerase activity, and collagen formation. 

These processes are essential for slowing aging and reducing hyperpigmentation.

Strengthening the skin barrier

The integrity of the skin barrier is fundamental to overall skin health, serving as a defense against microbial invasion and moisture loss. It is also easily compromised as we age, due to a reduction in our skin’s natural oil production.

Sea buckthorn oil's rich phytoceramide and lipid content fortifies this barrier, effectively reducing transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and shielding the skin from inflammation-induced aging and structural damage. 

Its barrier-strengthening properties also offer support for inflammatory skin conditions, such as dermatitis and rosacea, comforting sensitive reactive-prone skin.

Antioxidant power for smoother firmer skin

Environmental stressors like UV radiation, pollution, and psychological stress contribute to increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, accelerating skin aging through oxidative stress. 

Sea buckthorn oil is a powerhouse of antioxidants, including polyphenols and vitamins A, E, and C—boasting a vitamin C content 15 times higher than that of oranges!

These antioxidants mitigate ROS damage, support collagen synthesis, and provide regenerative benefits, crucial for preventing premature aging and facilitating skin recovery.

Moreover, the oil's phytonutrients can help curb the activity of sun-induced MMP enzymes responsible for collagen degradation, offering further protection against aging and inflammation.

Enhanced radiance

Sea buckthorn oil may help support skin detoxification and oxygenation, culminating in a more radiant and glowing complexion. 

This improvement boosts skin barrier health and resilience, something that is especially beneficial for those who spend time in extreme climatic conditions, like skiing in Telluride!

Sea buckthorn oil stands out as a multifaceted elixir in skin care, offering a spectrum of benefits from anti-inflammatory and barrier-strengthening actions to antioxidant protection and radiance enhancement. 

You can find Sea buckthorn in our best-selling Alpine Phytonutrient Serum and Purist Delicate Skin Serum.
