If you’ve tried our Carrot Seed Serum, you know that the obsession is real. Once you’ve incorporated it into your routine, it’s hard to ever look back.
Most of you know that I only create a product when I feel like there’s truly something missing in my own self-care routine, or when I’m hearing consistent product requests from you guys. This serum was born out of both. I knew that we needed a serum in our collection, but I really wanted something different and unique.
Traditionally, serums tend to be too lightweight or sticky for my tastes. I wanted a product that delivered potent plant ingredients while also giving a small dose of moisture for the skin. It took me almost a full year to get this formula just right, but it was worth it.
Using a serum in your routine is not a step to skip out on. With it’s powerful botanical ingredients, our Carrot Seed Serum packs a punch to lighten, brighten, and moisturize the skin.

Why carrot seed?
In my mid-20’s I started seeing darks spots, aka hyperpigmentation — pop up around the sides of my eyes and cheeks. This was due to being lazy about wearing sunglasses and sunscreen most of my life. I kind of had a freak-out moment, but the good news was that this was also the time in my life where I was deeply studying the power of plants. I began researching how to lighten the hyperpigmentation on my face and that’s when I discovered carrot seed and it’s incredible ability to brighten the skin. I found the highest quality carrot oil I could get my hands on and began blending it into formulas at home. Within a month the hyperpigmentation was gone. Thus, my love for this plant oil was born.
What does this serum do for the skin?
Our Carrot Seed Serum is packed full of powerful antioxidants and other plant ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties. This means that it’s extremely protective and also healing. So if you’re worried about aging and you have previous sun damage and/or want to prevent future damage, this is your serum.
Bonus: the squalane derived from olives, aloe vera, and rosehip seed oil bring a unique blend of moisture to the skin for additional protective and skin softening benefits.
What is the texture like?
The texture of this serum is milky and smooth. It glides onto the skin like a silky lotion — but quickly absorbs into the skin. It leaves your skin feeling soft instead of tight or sticky.
P.S. it smells like rosemary and citrus so the whole experience is truly uplifting.
What time of year should I use it?
This product is amazing for your skin year-round, but especially in seasons where you’re looking to lighten, brighten, heal, and add in more moisture to your skin. It can also be used both morning and night (which I do.)
So if your skin is feeling dull, damaged, and just needs some extra glow — look no further than our Carrot Seed Serum!
