Meet Flora, a toning mist that integrates the best of both functional and holistic skincare. With bio-identical superoxide dismutase, a powerful cellular antioxidant depleted in acne and aging, and the energetic, artisan-distilled botanical waters of neroli, rose, and witch hazel, Flora gently, yet effectively encourages the skin back into optimal balance. A truly harmonizing, integrative addition to your skincare routine.

Flora is made without direct acids, alcohol, glycerin, or propanediol, some of which may irritate sensitive and acne-prone skin types.

For all skin types.

  • Supports the skin's antioxidant defense. Studies show that pretreatment of the skin with superoxide dismutase protects against the oxidative effects of UV rays. Superoxide dismutase is also responsible for quenching a powerful free radical, superoxide -- a free radical shown to contribute to the acne formation process.
  • Encourages skin barrier repair and a healthy skin microbiome. The skin's natural pH sits between 4.5 and 5.5. This slightly acidic pH allows for the production of ceramides that make up the protective skin barrier as well as the maintenance of a healthy skin microbiome. Flora contains the naturally acidic hydrosols of neroli, rose, and witch hazel, encouraging the skin back into its optimal pH range without the use of direct acids.

An optimal skincare regimen for restoring skin health and clarity always includes three critical components: a gentle cleanser, an ingredient to balance skin pH, and an oil specifically rich in linoleic acid. Together, these three components ensure the skin is detoxified, repaired, protected, and hydrated, and are further enhanced by targeted actives such as antioxidants, antimicrobials, and exfoliants.

As the SANA SKIN community has expanded, we have learned a lot from our customers. Together, through trial and error, we've identified the most effective (and most problematic) ingredients for various skin types, including and most importantly, acne-prone skin. This has allowed us to expand our offerings in a community-led way, releasing formulas that are not only what our customers want to see from us, but also the products with the ingredients that our customers have come to know and love through experience.

Combined with intensive research on skin physiology, we believe we have curated a simple, holistic, yet, effective 3-step system that encompasses all the necessary components for healthy, radiant, clearer skin.

For acne-prone skin, we recommend a combination of our Purity cleanser, Flora mist, and Clarity serum. If you are sensitive to strong smells, we recommend swapping out or diluting the Clarity serum with our Vitale elixir.

For all other skin types, we recommend a combination of our Purity cleanser, Flora mist, and Vitale elixir.

4 fl oz / 120 mL (~30-120 day supply, depending on use)

Citrus aurantium var. amara (Neroli) Hydrosol*, Rosa x damascena (Bulgarian Rose) Hydrosol*, Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) Hydrosol*, Superoxide Dismutase *Organically grown.

Our hydrosols are artisan distilled in small batches, from plants organically grown on small family farms and co-ops.

After cleansing, mist Flora all over areas that need some love. Then, seal in the hydration with our Clarity or Vitale oils. Repeat morning and night for best results. Product can be stored in the refrigerator to prolong shelf life.
