I recently discovered Graydon Skincare, which is a cruelty-free plant-powered brand, that creates healthy ultra-effective products that deliver real results, and that are a pure joy to use.

Meet Graydon, the eponymous founder of this magical skincare line, whose passion for wellness prompted the creation of this healthy and sustainable skincare company:

Combining food and beauty started early for me. As a child, my family moved to France and where I was blessed to be able to explore lavender fields, flower markets and delighted in fresh produce. I was captivated by the beauty of Parisian women and how they cared for their skin. I was the kid who would concoct my own face masks and apply them to any willing victim.

Fueled by my fascination with the alchemy of food, I studied and worked in the culinary arts early in my career, and moved to Southern California for graduate school lured by the farm to table cuisine I was exposed to as a child.

After some experiencing some health issues, it was in Santa Monica that I deeply connected with the wellness world and my passions came together. I became a certified yoga instructor, worked as a raw, vegan chef and began developing skincare remedies for my clients based on superfood ingredients.

As demand for my small-batch, superfood concoctions has grown, I have learned to scale my formulations to deliver plant-based skincare using high performing clinically-proven superfood actives like such as botanical retinol, oligo peptides, collagen, ceramides and probiotics blended with result-driven vitamins (including a, b, c & e) and minerals (such as magnesium, copper & zinc) to properly nourish your skin, from the outside in.

The inter-connection of yoga, nutrition and beauty will always be where my inspiration comes from. I am so honoured to have you along on my journey and I can wholeheartedly promise to help you look and feel your best no matter your skin type, your birthdate or gender. It all starts with feeding your skin!
Graydon Fullmoon Serum is a featherweight gel-like, ultra-luxe, vegan serum that immediately melts into the skin, and that is formulated with potent actives that, among other things, help soften the appearance of fine lines. High quality Vitamin C brightens the complexion, Hyaluronic Acid plumps fine lines and facilitates serious hydration, Retinol exfoliates dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of fine lines, Peptides help to firm the skin and Collagen proteins help diminish the appearance of enlarged pores. Furthermore, Blue Tansy, which is an effective anti-inflammatory ingredient, calms red and irritated skin, while a whole host of plant actives hydrate and nourish the skin.

Formulated for all types of skin, Fullmoon Serum, which is a superfood plant powered gem of a serum, was "inspired by the beauty of the moon and feminine lunar cycles...Fullmoon Serum helps improve and protect your skin’s natural beauty." It helps to protect skin from daily assaults from the environment, such as pollutants, it reduces inflammation and it leaves skin renewed, soft, smooth, supple, luminous, nourished and hydrated. Additionally, this magical elixir has a light natural aroma that is derived from the natural plant-based ingredients, but Graydon does not use essential oils or any added fragrances.
According to Graydon,

Combat comprehensive signs of aging with our hydrophilic, feather-light Fullmoon Serum. This multi-functional vegan serum soothes, smoothes and protects for a more radiant looking complexion.

Formulated with botanical collagen, vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, oligopeptides and retinol, anti-inflammatory blue tansy, an anti-pollution complex, and infused with Graydon's favorite gemstone malachite, our Fullmoon Serum helps to improve and protect your skin’s natural beauty while combating comprehensive signs of aging. 

Perfect for every skin type, this feather light botanical serum will help shield your delicate facial skin from everyday pollutants and calms inflammation.

Worn solo, or blended with your favourite face oil or moisturizer, you can't help but notice a more supple, smooth skin and a more radiant complexion.

Loaded with all your favourite actives that help visibly reduce signs of aging, Fullmoon Serum is what skin dreams are made of!

Directions: Apply 4-6 drops onto your fingers, and using Graydon’s ‘effleurage’ technique gently sweep this botanical serum onto your freshly cleansed face, neck and décolleté before moisturizing with your favourite moisturizer or face oil. Suitable for both morning and night and appropriate for all skin types.
