Tularosa Nocturnal Illuminating Milk
What is it? This creamy, green hydro-milk harnesses the resiliency of desert botanicals to stimulate hydration and cellular renewal without the use of acids or actives.
Notes from the Curator: With a scent of green sap and a light creamy texture, Tularosa utilizes plant oleosomes, or oil droplets, to delivery retinol-analog actives into the skin. Pure plant magic.
Let’s Get Nerdy: Plants that grow in desert ecosystems are rich in polysaccharides (water-loving sugars) and adaptogenic compounds which help them adapt to UV radiation and drought. We combine these desert adaptogens with other potent plant extracts that function as retinol-analogs, including Bakuchiol from the Babchi plant and Moth Bean extract, to stimulate the skin’s own cellular turnover process.
