From A Celebrity Facialist
Schisandra, The Queen Of All Medicinal Herbs
There is a lot going on in the products we use everyday and naturally, our clients often ask very interesting questions about our ingredients.
Just a few days ago Laura was asking me about Schisandra, the ultimate superberry we use in our incredible Botanical Facial Oil and I wanted to talk to you about it.
I grew up in Korea drinking this delicious berry tea. It’s popular as a health drink as it’s known to work as an adaptogen — to help the body adapt to stress and normalize bodily processes. We call it OMIJA, OH means “five”, MI means “flavor,” and JA means “son”.
The five elements
The five flavors (sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent) correspond to the five elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal. This berry has so many health benefits internally and externally. In terms of skincare, it is known to be a powerful antioxidant, balancing for the skin, stabilizing for the lipid membrane and reduces facial redness by decreasing cellular sensitivity to environmental and bodily stressors.
Scientific Names: Schisandra arisanensis Hayata, Schisandra chinensis (Turcz.) Baillon, Schisandra fructus, Schisandra rubriflora Franch, Schisandra sphenanthera Rehd. Common Names: Gomishi, Hoku-gomishi, Hoy tsi, Ji-chu, Kita-gomishi, Limonnik, Maximowich's red grape, Omiza, Schisandra, Schizandra, Wu-wei-zu.

Reveal your natural beauty
And inspire your self-confidence
My clients often tell me they are frustrated with their lotion, but don’t know why.
I tell them it’s because so many contain wax emulsifiers that sit on top of their skin and don’t absorb to give it the nourishment and nurturing it craves.
Tulura was made for people like you. People who believe in the transformative power of advanced botanicals to reveal their natural beauty and inspire self-confidence, naturally.
