Natural Beauty: The Revitalizer by Biossance

When it comes to skin care and facial moisturizers, I’m not easily impressed by most products. First, I have sensitive skin. Second, I have an allergy to the horrifically-prolific preservative Methylisothiazolinone.

So when I was asked to try The Revitalizer by Biossance™, the first thing I asked was: What’s in it?

Imagine my surprise when I learned there was only a single ingredient in the product: 100% Neossance® Squalane, which according to Biossance, is a “plant-derived [from Brazilian sugarcane], patented emollient that replenishes your skin by using a moisturizer found naturally in your body.” It’s also dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, vegan-friendly, and paraben-free.

All natural and all that? OK, sign me up.

The Revitalizer

When I received a full-size bottle of The Revitalizer, I was immediately thrilled with the clean, minimal packaging, and the fact that the product came in glass bottle with a glass dropper (I try to avoid plastics and BPA as much as possible). In fact, the packaging and company philosophy felt so in tune with my own commitment to living a healthy lifestyle, that I actually couldn’t wait to try it.

The very first night I received the product, I gave it a whirl. The Revitalizer is a skin oil that feels and acts very much like 100% Argan oil, which I love. It has no fragrance, no color, and absorbs quickly and fully, provided that you don’t use too much. Just a drop or two is plenty. And like Argan oil, this product is also multi-use: it’s safe for moisturizing your face and anywhere on your body, and can also be used on your hair.

The Verdict

I love this stuff! It is gentle, very moisturizing, and your skin looks amazing when you wake up! Plus, $58 for 1.7 ounces is an absolute bargain for a high-quality, natural moisturizer that will last months.

The Revitalizer is the first product to be launched by Biossance, but there is more to come, so stay tuned.

The Biossance Brand

So The Revitalizer passes the test…just wanted to make a couple observations about the brand as well.

I’m a firm believer in supporting brands that are innovative, socially conscious, and against animal testing. Biossance is all that; it’s also a brand that is leveraging science smartly, in order “to make the scarce abundant, the rarified accessible, and the natural sustainable.” Two thumbs up to that.

I only collaborate with or feature brands here on G&G that measure up to my personal tastes and expectations, and Biossance is one of the few brands that does, on every level. There is thoughtful science behind the name, plus a true commitment to not harming our Mother Earth or her creatures in the creation of its products.

  1. Sounds fantastic! I like the more natural products too, and I’ve become very wary of anything with a lot of fragrance in it. Ever since I switched to products with less fragrance my skin has become much more lovely.
