Ingredient Highlights

Bai Xian Pi / Dicatamni Cortex / Cortex of Chinese Dittany Root

Used topically for thousands of years in East Asian Medicine to ‘treat oozing red skin sores with pus’ Antibacterial. Antineoplastic, meaning it prevents the formation of tumors.

Camellia sinensis / Green Tea extract


Salix alba / white willow bark

Contains salicin. Salicin purifies the skin AND reduces inflammation without irritating the skin. *** Salicylic acid is used topically to treat acne (but often overdries the skin-- then the breakout cycle never ends. When the skin is too dry, it produces more oil. Also, when there’s a layer of dry skin, the acne just gets irritated and/or gets trapped underneath the dry skin, as if there’s a brick wall there.

Gan Cao / Glycyrrhizae Radix / Licorice Root

Natural skin lightener and antioxidant. Antioxidants combat free radicals. Free radicals lead to ‘aging skin’.

Other ingredients: Grapeseed oil infused with a proprietary blend of East Asian Herbs, white willow bark (salix alba)* and tea flower (camellia sinensis)*; rosemary antioxidant, bergamot essential oil (bergaptene free)

30mL     pH6.5   


Ritual: Step 3 (AM/PM)

This oil may be used alone, or under a moisturizer. Apply after misting with Hydrating Emulsion Spray, day and/or night.

For all-over treatment of heavily stressed skin: massage 7-9 drops into your face, neck, and décolletage.

For all-over treatment of moderately stressed skin: mix 3 drops with your facial masque or moisturizer.

For spot treatment: apply directly to problem areas.

How it works: Acne occurs when the hormones of the body are overstimulated, producing excess oil that combines with bacteria and dead skin cells in your pores to form blemishes. If the skin is too dry — for example due to using overly harsh or toxic products — the skin will naturally produce more oil.

By gently hydrating and re-balancing the skin with proprietary East Asian herbs and willowbark, Mee Ra Purifying Oil stops this vicious cycle.
