WHY WE LOVE IT
- The groundbreaking Cellular Oil is fueled by micro-lipids from the stem cells of the Spanish millennial olive tree. For the first time, using Ayuna’s patented technology, oil is extracted directly from the stem cell’s membrane. The result? An advanced daily treatment that revives dull, energy-depleted skin for a soft feel and a luminous look. The Mediterranean blend also includes hazelnut and sweet almond oils to nourish and smooth.
