Green People founder Charlotte Vøhtz has expanded her signature skincare collection with a new 99% certified organic Age Defy+ Purifying Balancing Oil Serum. Designed to offer a luxury approach to decongesting skincare, the oil serum blends ‘cutting-edge age confidence’ botanicals with sebum-balancing phytoactives. The complexion-calming oil serum can be applied directly to blemishes or combined with day creams and moisturizers for a personalized skincare solution. The formula uses stem cells from ginger leaf extract to balance the skin’s sebum production, help decongest clogged pores and restore skin clarity and confidence to women experiencing blocked pores, skin congestion and blemishes in their 30s, 40s and post-menopause. The blend also includes black cumin seed oil and jojoba oil and is delicately scented with a refreshing citrus blend of lemon, bergamot and bitter orange.
