Universal, as in all-around and all-ways

Named for its deeply transformative nature, Alchemy is a highly multi-tasking blend formulated for all skin types across all stages of life. It is deeply nourishing and regenerative without being greasy, steeping the skin in topical micronutrients which work to eradicate blemishes, even out skin tone, plump scarring and fine lines, and boost overall radiance with every use.

Long term use of Alchemy is likened to being born again in new skin — a metamorphosis occurs where a new narrative on our relationship to our skin is written and harmony is brought back into every pore.

All oils are organic and cold-pressed. We never ever skimp on the potency of our plants.

Marula Seed Oil ⊹ Called the “elixir of youth”, Marula Seed oil is rich in anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial omegas that reverse sun damage, reduce the appearance of scars, boost cellular turnover, build collagen, and protect from environmental toxins.

Jojoba Seed Oil ⊹ The properties of Jojoba oil are the closest we have to our own skin’s oil properties, therefore it doesn’t clog pores and helps to keep our oil production balanced while being both astringent as well as deeply moisturizing. It helps to regulate hormonal imbalance and speeds up wound mending (like from popping a zit). 

Argan Oil ⊹ A rare oil that’s high in both oleic (omega 9) and linoleic (omega 6) fatty acids, both of which aid acne-prone skin tremendously. Linoleic acid reduces inflammation and acne flare ups, as well as increases skin moisture levels (when the skin is too try, it over-compensates and produces more oil, causing clogged pores and blemishes!). Oleic acid improves the skin’s permeability and assists other ingredients to penetrate the skin more easily.

Coconut Oil ⊹ The triglycerides within coconut oil help to retain skin moisture and keep the blend grease-free. Its lauric acid content makes it highly antibacterial + antiviral, helping to eliminate the bacteria which clog pores or worsen rashes. It’s perfect for sensitive skin.

Lavender ⊹ Tames inflammation, disinfects acne and blemish bacteria, and diminishes scarring 

Tea Tree ⊹ The most powerful disinfectant for acne and blemishes, and is anti-inflammatory

Frankincense ⊹ A powerful astringent that is so essential for clearing scarring, large pores, and wrinkles

Tetraethoxysilane ⊹ A key ingredient that we praise this oil blend for. It signals the body’s own innate immune system to work its magic from the inside, out. It is completely non-toxic.

Dicaprylyl Carbonate ⊹ This is another completely non-toxic, sustainable ingredient which helps the oils within this blend to penetrate even deeper into the skin. We rely on it as a catalyst for ultimate absorption of the powerful plants it’s mixed with.

Lovingly rub 5-7 drops onto clean skin both morning + evening after cleansing.

I use to be a massage therapist and I really believe in natural oils and I love this product. Absorbs quickly and it brings a calmness when I smell the tree tea and lavender. My skin feels wonderful!

I have tried everything under the Sun over the years. My fave has gone through many changes but all end the same -acne and scarring. I’ve been using alchemy for 3 months now and my skin looks and feels new. It’s healthier then I’ve ever experienced it and I’m hooked!! Just ordered a new bottle and I’m never looking back. Thank you Moon + Rock for lovingly creating this intentional skin care

Best simple one step magic!

I started using Alchemy a couple of years ago during my 2nd pregnancy. I was experiencing repeated hormonal and stress breakouts as I did my 1st pregnancy. I have combination oily and dry skin so was initially a bit apprehensive (as other oil based products I’ve used in the past made me break out) but once I started using it, within in only just a few days I started to notice my skin getting clearer and brighter. It doesn’t have a greasy after feel either which I cannot wrap my head around. I wasn’t sure if my eyes were just tricking me but the feeling of my skin felt healthier as well. I also love that the product came with a skin mantra that reminded me of how my approach was to skin and self. It seemed too good to be true and I wondered if it would all change once I gave birth and stopped breastfeeding but it never did. Her packaging has evolved and so has the quantity and price (bottle was twice as large but for a tiny increase) but after all these years it is just as effective as it was in the beginning. I love trying new products so when she released the Atone, I gave that a shot and found it to be a wonderful addition. It is moisturizing and a great primer to the Alchemy. I’m a bit of a product fiend and love to try new products still but no matter what new ones I get, I always keep coming back to these amazing Moon + Rock facial products. They really truly are the best and with a 1-2 step, I don’t really need much of anything else at all. Price point is also great especially for how effectively simple it works. Thank you for making these simple, pure and effective products! What a relief to spend less time obsessing over my skin and more time to spend living life. Big mahalo!
