Simmer Down Serum Neighbourhood Botanicals

Say hello to the latest launch, a sign of the times, a calming serum for angry skin, Simmer Down Serum!

I get asked often to make an oil for oily skin, those suffering with breakouts, stress pimples, flareups... so here it is! Simmer Down Serum was formulated especially for you.

This is a potent thin serum, jam-packed with plant actives to help keep bacteria in check and calm down misbehaving skin, with a unique INCI list of unrivalled quality.

The oils in this blend are raw and cold-pressed, extracted without chemical solvents and unrefined to preserve the maximum potency of the plants.

Suitable for oily skin, and those prone to redness and breakouts.

Quickly absorbed serum with no lasting oily film.

This serum draws from traditional herbal staples for their supreme nourishment, and antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

The oil extracts in this blend have been carefully selected for different reasons:

Chaulmoogra
Long used in traditional Eastern healing for skin inflictions. Unique antimicrobial acid profile of chaulmoogric acid, gorlic acid, and most importantly hydnocarpic acid, used to treat skin lesions.

Hemp
Shown to soothe inflammation, has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Tomato
A zero-waste oil produced from seeds discarded in the food production process. Improves the smoothness of the skin, and can reduce hyper-pigmentation and scarring. 

Dragon Fruit
Anti-Inflammation, skin smoothing and firming.

Radish
Another zero-waste oil full of vitamin C and shown to have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Castor*
A unique oil with a thick feeling but ultimately drying (astringent) effect on the skin, helping to regulate oily skin.

Plum
A zero-waste oil from the fruit industry. Antioxidant-rich and soothing.

Eucalyptus
Little Aussie classic for clarifying mind and skin alike. Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

Vetiver
Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. Used in aromatherapy to promote tranquility.

Rosemary Antioxidant
An antioxidant added to stop the oils going rancid.

Verbena
Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. Up-lifting.

Sage
Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. Calming.

*This one oil (castor bean oil) is refined because the cold-pressed version has a really awful pungent aroma!
