We’ve finally welcomed the newest addition to our naturally exfoliating PRISM collection! 

Our Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial joins our Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum and gentle Prism 5% Exfoliating Fruit Acid Glow Potion, providing you with varying levels of exfoliation for visibly brighter skin that feels fresh, youthful, soft, and renewed.

Herbivore is committed to using only all-natural ingredients, and we frequently get questions about preservatives. How do our PRISM formulas stay stable over time (without changing color)?

The beauty of natural skincare is that botanical preservatives boost benefits to your skin! Read on to discover how the natural preservation system used in our PRISM formulas is also beneficial for your skin. This kind of ingredient synchronicity is skincare magic, suspended.

The following ingredients provide product-preserving support and glow-boosting benefits. They are included in all Prism products to give them a shelf life of twelve months:

  • Aspen Bark Extract: Also known as Populus Tremuloides Bark Extract, this bark prevents molding in natural cosmetics and skincare products by acting as an effective preservative and alternative to parabens, which may pose health threats. Not only does aspen bark extract keep our PRISM products fresh, it also offers benefits to the skin by boosting a more refined overall skin tone overall.
  • Leucidal/Leuconostoc Radish Root: This ingredient is made from radishes fermented with a lactic acid bacteria called leuconostoc kimchii. The resulting leucidal liquid has been shown to provide antimicrobial benefits, preserving our Prism products and helping to clear the skin!
  • Sodium Phytate: Found abundantly in plant tissues (especially bran and seeds) this all-natural chelating agent (a.k.a. preservative potentiator) acts as a stabilizer and prevents color changes in natural skincare products. This ingredient also works synergistically with antioxidants like lemon, orange, and bilberry in Prism formulas, enhancing their skin-softening properties.
  • Orange + Lemon Citric Acid: Citric Acid is a natural preservative that’s included in our Prism formulas. This magical ingredient is sourced from citrus fruit, and helps the skin to stay strong against damage!
