Laurel Whole Plant Day BalmSee All Laurel Whole Plant
The Day Balm is a waterless, lightweight salve that effortlessly melts nto the skin, leaving a light layer of protection that keeps skin soft and seals in hydration and moisture throughout the day. It’s raw; whole organic plants were carefully chosen to help protect the skin from daily environmental stressors. The concentrated, antioxidant-rich botanicals delicately envelope each cell, creating a barrier of defense against free radical damage.
– Normal / Dry / Mature
– 100% Whole Plant Organic
– 28 Beneficial Active Ingredients
– Size: 30ml
Apply a very small amount (about 1/4 of a pea size) of Day Balm to face, neck, and chest after applying Elixir and Serum.
Use within 6 months of opening and within 18 months of the manufacture date found on the bottom of the jar.
Keep contents of jar dry and free of moisture, water, or contaminants. Store product away from light and heat in order to best preserve antioxidant contents. If Balm melts in transit and texture changes, this does not affect the product performance, only texture. If you wish to restore the Balm’s texture post melting please reach out to us for instructions.
Science: It is true that your skin can only absorb so much oil. If a product is seeming to not absorb into your skin – whether it be a facial oil or a facial balm, consider first that you might simply be using too much. A facial cream is always approximately 70% water; this is just how all emulsifiers work. In a cosmetic emulsion, the water has to be dominant at well over 60%, typically closer to 70-80%. When you are switching to a Balm or Oil from a Cream, it’s important to consider this information and use only 1/4 of what you would normally expect to use with a cream. Balms and Serums are dramatically concentrated in comparison to normal commercial skin care. If you are looking to reduce that shiny glow, then simply use less product.
Ritual: My personal favorite time to use Day Balm when I’m concerned with the elements – that might be cold winters or it might be too much sun; I find it helpful for both. I don’t have very dry skin, so I don’t necessarily have to use a Balm every day. But I love the extra antioxidant protection this product brings when I am concerned with UV damage, or skin dehydration in harsh dry winters. I apply a generous misting of Elixir, followed by a couple of drops of Serum, another misting of Elixir, and finish with a tiny amount of Day Balm before I head out to face the day!
Neroli – The scent of fresh bright citrus blossom, Neroli, is uplifting and joyful. In addition to brightening the scent of the Day Balm, Neroli also has a brightening, cleansing, toning, and balancing effect on the skin.
Calendula – Our vibrant Biodynamic® Calendula is farmed and harvested mindfully for Laurel Skin. Calendula is deeply restorative and healing on a cellular level. It is excellent for scarring and all forms of skin damage.
Carrot Seed – This oil contains carotenoids and specific nutrients that have proven to help prevent sun damage from occurring as well as repair UV damage related symptoms such as discoloration and loss of elasticity.
Rosehip – Our Rosehip Oil is incredibly special because it comes from both fruit and seed, making more vitamins and nutrients more bioavailable. There are no oils that match the unique chemical make-up of Rosehip Oil, which has been used for centuries and studied at length for its ability to reduce the appearance of scars, repair deep cellular damage, and minimize the appearance of fine lines by supporting collagen and connective tissue.
Gotu Kola – Gotu Kola is a plant that supports connective tissue and collagen, by protecting it and encouraging new growth. Our Gotu Kola is the most vibrant in the world and grown exclusively for us by a nearby farm. It is a plant that we truly cannot do without in any healthy aging formula.

Laurel Whole Plant Organics is a flower and herb based facial care line, firmly rooted in mindful beauty rituals, taking purity and efficacy to a new level by using the highest quality, artisan ingredients. A 100% organic, raw, unrefined, whole plant line, Laurel sources directly from bio-dynamic farms, handcrafting each product with love, integrity and unparalleled purity. Every formula is alcohol and water free, and made using the purest, most effective vibrant plants. Whether in spa or at home, Laurel Whole Plant Organics believes beauty should be a loving ritualistic practice that begins with nurturing self-care.
Our promise to our customers and ourselves is to never use parabens, synthetic fragrances, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, GMOs, non-organically grown plants, or any toxic chemical of any kind. Laurel WPO is committed to your health, well-being and your beautiful skin. It is a common misconception that putting toxins on your face is actually good for your skin – we beg to differ. A synthetic antioxidant in the presence of an abundance of carcinogens isn’t even remotely as powerful as pure antioxidants found in whole plants. Your skin can only handle so much harsh chemical treatment, before it starts to become harmful to your skin.
The Laurel line is also about taking time to care for yourself. We are strongly rooted in the spa and resort industry, which has taught us that slowing down and taking time to have a cup of tea and take a bath, really does take years off for the mind, body, and spirit. Everything we do is done with love; from the season it takes to grow our plants, to the months our handmade blends sit steeping, to the minutes we spend bottling a batch. From the farm to the lab – the whole making process is done with love and care, and you will feel that when you use our products. Make your skin care routine something you take time to do for yourself and it will be that much more powerful.
