Are you wondering what a toner is and what it can do for you? You're not alone! Many of our clients have been asking us why a toner is an important part of any skincare regime - we're here to clear that confusion once and for all.

Why do skin care experts claim that toners must be used after cleansing? This is because toners should be replenishing the skin with what cleansers wash away. An effective toner will rebalance the skin's natural PH and replenish moisture levels, among other benefits! A toner can quickly feed the skin antioxidants and soothing agents, thus brightening the skin and reducing redness.
Our Moisturizing Cleanser + Makeup Remover does not strip your skin of it's natural oils - it instead hydrates the skin and helps to naturally diminish the appearance of black heads.

Toners are often formulated very differently depending on the brand. It's widely common that toners will contain aggressive, highly astringent and drying ingredients such as: witch hazel, tea tree oil, menthol and alcohols. Most toners marketed for oily or acne-prone skin types contain the above ingredients. We recommend avoiding those ingredients, as they can irritate and dehydrate the skin. Toners should be rejuvenating, revitalizing and re-balancing, and they can only supply those benefits if they are of a non-irritating formula.

A Toner can help activate your oil-based serum or face balm. The secret to hydrating your skin with pure, concentrated plant oils is to always apply on damp skin, or add a few spritz of toner to your face serum. Watch it magically emulsify in your hand. Allow the powerful phyto-nutrients in the toner blend to make a beautiful raw cream that will nourish, hydrate and repair your skin.

Our Invigorating + Balancing Toner is free from the aforementioned avoidable ingredients, as well as: petroleum, parabens, synthetic fragrances and ingredients, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, dyes, solvents, pesticides, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), palm oil or derivatives, cosmetic grade ingredients and toxins of any kind.

Key Ingredients:

Organic Rose Floral Water is a rich source of antioxidants, which can help strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissue. It helps to reduce inflammation and calm inflamed and irritated skin.

Geranium essential oil is a powerful skin healer, improving tone and texture by fading imperfections and constricting blood vessels. It also controls sebum production to balance oily and combination skin.

Reviews of our Invigorating + Balancing Toner


"I've always been something of a skeptic about toners, but this one finally converted me! After I started incorporating it into my routine, I noticed a definite improvement in my skin - it feels much softer and more hydrated. I also find the toner calms redness in my skin and helps my facial serum absorb better, keeping my skin softer throughout the day.

It also smells wonderful! Like all the PA products I've tried, it really feels like the essential oils have a specific, therapeutic purpose, instead of being some kind of perfumed afterthought.

Wonderful results and a total pleasure to use!



"The best toner I've tried! I truly look forward to using this product after washing my face. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. I love the fresh scent and the spray application feels like a spa-experience. Definitely recommend. Also very affordable, especially for a high-quality natural product."



"Calms & soothes my breakout prone skin. Since I started using this, I can see the severity and redness of my breakout has gone down and it looks like it is clearing up. I've already ordered another bottle so I never have to be without :)"


Try incorporating a natural toner into your routine and let us know how it changes your life (because it will)!
