Metamorphic Eye Serum
What is it? Second Sight Metamorphic Eye Serum is deeply nourishing eye serum with essential fatty acids and nutrients for delicate thin skin around the eyes.
Notes from the Curator: The eye serum is made with solar-infusion of herbs traditionally linked to vision ( both physical and spiritual) provide micronutrients to prevent inflammatory ageing, darkness, and puffiness.
Let’s Get Nerdy: The serum is sun-infused with seven biodynamic plants in alignment with the moon cycles for the most potent extractions. Wood Betony has a rich history as a tonic herb. Here its used to strengthen skin, but it has also been used for centuries to ward off negativity, induce prophetic dreams, and cure head pain. Spirea acmella, also known as Electric Daisy, reduces muscle tension and softens lines caused by facial tension. Ginkgo biloba stimulates peripheral bloodflow to the skin while its high antioxidant properties inhibit free radicals. Bilberries are rich in anthocyanosides, polyphenols and antioxidants, and help to tone and tighten skin and heal microdamage causing wrinkles and sagging. Eyebright holds toning and soothing properties, historically used in a wash for eyes to combat eye health problems. Artichoke leaves contain polyphenols which have been found to significantly improve skin’s cell functioning, mitigating the impact of vascular damage. Calendula is a superlative skin healer with emollient properties.
