Though elderberry has taken more of a back seat in the health industry in recent years, the super-berry has recently gained it’s status as the ultimate flu-fighter.

Good news for sensitive skin! Skin-care formulas are about to get a little kinder and a lot less irritating.

In fact, skin buffs are opting for facial oils that combine bakuchiol with products like buckthorn berry, rosehip and sweet almond oils to hydrate and boost collagen production naturally.
