Renewing Polish, we love you. The gooey formula that makes us admire our complexion the second you've washed it off. The results are undeniable. Smooth, brand new, fresh skin. The formulation is one of the originals from 2009. True and tested, tested and true. So, how could we possibly make it better?
When we learned about the power behind raw buckwheat honey we had to test it. And we did so for nearly a year.
What we found out
Buckwheat honey is a gorgeously delicious, full-bodied polyphenol-rich darkhoneyendowedwithnotableantioxidantandanti-inflammatoryproperties. It has been clinically compared to manuka honey, in some instances surpassing its healing and antioxidant activity. This clinical study, also shows buckwheat exhibiting better absorption rate over manuka. So, the more we learned, the more we thought that Raw Buckwheat Honey deserves some spotlight. And, it's in our own Pacific Northwest backyard.
Renewing Polish will remain 100% true to its original formula with the substitute of this powerhouse superfood in its raw form. One thing to note is the scent. If you loved the old scent, this scent... the dark molasses, caramel-like notes mixed with rich brown sugar and lemon... It simply must be experienced.
If you're human, you need to exfoliate. Renewing Polish is packed with natural source of glycolic acid, vitamin C, enzymes and minerals. This formulation is the one product that will save your skin from dry patches, sun kisses (buy a hat!) and post blemish marks. Always follow with a toner and a nourishing oil.

We are here to deconstruct conventional beliefs of ‘perfect’ beauty. Luxury is synonymous with being seamless and unattainable. We believe that self-clarity and sovereignty is the true definition of luxury. What you choose to put on your skin and how you choose to wear it is part of that definition.
