As we age, our skin produces less of the oils it needs to lubricate and protect itself. The result: wrinkles, roughness and enlarged pores.
Replenishes the top layers of the skin so it can retain moisture and repel assaults from sun and wind.
Dry skin becomes soft, rough skin becomes smooth, large pores shrink, and wrinkles soften. Oily skin regains its balance and blemish prone skin clears up. WOW is right.
Buy together and save
Cleanse, hydrate, replenish and protect your skin everyday with these four essentials for aging skin.
Face the facts: Ingredients matter. Take seed oils for example. Needless to say extracting oils from a chia, rosehip, papaya or kiwi seed is no easy feat. But we still insist on using them in our Pacific Face Oil. The reason is simple: they’re extremely high in the antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids your skin needs.
KEY INGREDIENTSChia seed and kiwi seed oils
Chia seeds are the best natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and kiwi seeds are not far behind. Omega-3 fatty acids help strengthen cell membranes’ barriers. Good barrier protective function means water and nutrients can enter the cells while toxins are kept out. When your cells are adequately nourished, skin glows.
Passion fruit oil and papaya seed oil
Passion fruit and papaya seed oils are cold-pressed from tropical fruits high in Omega 6 and 9, Vitamins A & C and Potassium. They penetrate the skin quickly, conditioning the skin with special enzymes that help dissolve excess sebum and impurities on the skin’s surface.
Astaxanthin and red raspberry seed oil
Derived from Hawaiian red pond algae, astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant on record. Its anti-aging benefits are nothing less than stunning. Topical applications reduce wrinkle- formation, and in human trials, astaxanthin has been shown to reduce visible signs of UV-aging. With their natural sun protective properties, both astaxanthin and red raspberry seed oil help to prevent sun damage.

"I highly recommend these products, they are made from high quality ingredients and aren't cheap but they do what Marie says they'll do. My skin is fair and sensitive plus I live in the Mojave Desert so if MVO wasn't as advertised I would have known quickly. So very happy I followed the link that day in the Chronicle. If you decide to use MVO do your self a favor and take pictures of your face before you start using them, then again in three months..." -- Jackie Pelfrey

"In the nearly 2 weeks that I have been using the MV Pacific line, I have seen marked improvement in my skin. Amazingly, I have only had 1 rosacea flare-up in these entire 12 days (!), and it was very minor. This is truly huge because I previously had 1 to 2 significant flare-ups every single day for the past year, and my skin was in a constant "reactive" state. I am beyond surprised that I would see such a huge difference so fast (and also that anything could help my skin) especially given how many different skin lines I've tried in the past 13 months since developing rosacea. My skin truly appears to be healing. Even the persistent redness that is always there (regardless of whether I am having a flare-up) is diminishing. Marie was actually in the store when I was there 12 days ago and she suggested that I switch from the micronized zinc sunscreen I had been using for a couple of years to her non-nano formula instead, which I did. I think that this in particular has made a huge difference since it calmed my skin from the first time I tried it. She also suggested a daily Turmeric & Vitamin C supplement, which I have been taking. Anyway, I am beyond thrilled and plan to continue using the Pacific line. My skin hasn't looked this good in over a year!" -- Rebecca J.
"Your products are awesome and the customer service is even better. You have a happy customer for life! :) Thank you." -- Michelle M. via Facebook
"I’ll put in my two cents and say I recently tried MVO’s Pacific line (based on a recommendation from this blog) and my skin is completely transformed. I’ve tried every clean product on the market, and I can easily say these are the most effective products out there, for me at least. And I don’t work for the company! I’m just a product junkie. So while $375 may seem like a lot, I would go for it based on my experience with MVO. I completely trust them based on my experience so far." -- Alison
"I love your products and have been using your serums, oils and sunscreen for a couple of years now." -- Sophie on Facebook

Most people get a bit nervous when they hear the words oil and skin in the same sentence. But there’s no reason to get nervous. Our skin thrives on oil, and in fact waxes, not oils, are the major cause of skin congestion.
Applying oils to the skin, without the interference of a wax barricade, gives your skin the essential fatty acids it needs to stay healthy. These fatty acids, called lipids, are part of the environmental protection barrier that prevent outside elements, among them sun, wind and pollution, from assaulting the skin and compromising its integrity. Oils also work wonders for restoring elasticity and keeping your skin hydrated. Oils actually penetrate into clogged pores and break up congested matter—because oils dissolve oils.
At Marie Veronique Organics, we prefer oils to lotions because the small lipid particles penetrate past the epidermal barrier to deliver nutrients to deeper layers of the skin. This means that a very high concentration of therapeutic ingredients can reach the dermal layer where skin renewal takes place.
Our Philosophy"Intelligent Ingredients" is more than just a tagline. It’s the overriding principle that guides every formulation at Marie Veronique Organics. That’s because science tells us that what goes on your skin ultimately penetrates your skin and goes into your body. The right ingredients can do a world of good and the wrong ones quite the opposite. Before an ingredient gets added to a product we make sure it does the right thing, efficiently and without causing harm to you or the planet.
Using our deep scientific understanding of the aging process, we turn to nature for potent ingredients that will counter—and even reverse—the effects of aging skin. Our ingredients are selected to penetrate deep within the skin, working exactly where the aging action happens, rather than simply staying on the surface. And above all else, we stand by our philosophy that toxic ingredients, harmful chemicals, artificial agents and preservatives are not the solution for making your skin look and feel younger.
It’s probably no surprise that our entire company is dedicated to sustainability. Wherever possible we use natural, organic and fair trade ingredients, packaged in 100% recyclable materials. And we source them as close to our Mill Valley headquarters as possible to keep our footprint super small.
DAY: Apply a small amount of face oil to moist skin followed by one of our sunscreens. It will help the sunscreen go on smoother and create a perfect ﬁnish.
NIGHT: Apply a generous amount of face oil to moist skin followed by one of our night serums. It will help replenish the lipid barrier that diminishes as we age and give your skin a healthy glow over time
Shake well before use and keep in a cool place. Safe to use around eye area. If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician.
