More about this item
HERBIVORE E M E R A L D emerald Deep Moisture Glow 8mL
Packed with Omegas 3, 6, and 9, which are “gamma linolenic acids,” and while that sounds like some Star Trek $#*+, it just means it’s super moisturizing and won’t clog pores. However, it might not soak into the skin very fast, she noted, which explains why I felt shiny versus glowy. “Glow is light reflecting off face,” Mattioli reminded me; I really need to stop talking about it like it comes from within.
Ashwagandha, turmeric root, shiitake mushrooms. That’s right, there are adaptogens here too. Touting mushrooms in skincare is a sign of the times, (not to say that the ingredients and herbs themself are new—they’re ancient); it just hasn’t been studied extensively yet in the ol’ journals of medicine. For that reason, it’s hard to say if the shiitake in the product is the cause for say, reducing inflammation, more so than other ingredients also present. “Stress and inflammation, that’s where adaptogens come into play,” said Mattioli. “I don’t think [adaptogens in skincare are] harmful, and we know how awesome they are when taken internally, so I’m all for anything that would help reduce stress in the skin”
Squalane is first in the ingredient list, meaning it’s the major player. Squalane is a hydrocarbon that’s found in your own skin as well as in plants, which is how Herbivore gets it in Emerald. Plant-based squalane is “totally safe and fine,” Mattioli told me. Also: super-hydrating. A-ha.
