This precious flower fills up with lipids to produce a special oil that attracts pollinators and prompts a complex of sugars to travel through the flower to activate its blooming . This process creates the most unique of skincare ingredients, used in Pure Shots Night Reboot Serum to protect, resurface and rejuvenate the skin.
