When you have a doctorate in pharmaceutical science with a focus on skin radiance and have worked for major skin-care brands, you know how to get the best glow. But when Natacha Bonjout examined what was on the market, she found most used oils and mica, which only delivered a surface-level “superficial glow.” Bonjout decided to create a multipurpose product that delivered true radiance. After analyzing hundreds of ingredients and versions over five years, Le Balm Skin Savior Solid Sérum was born last spring. Because it is waterless, Bonjout could pack it with over 60 actives. Key ingredients are stem cells from hibiscus and prickly pear. “It’s the most potent part of the plant,” she says.
