I’ve been using the Bio Mineral Mist during Advanced Treatments in my studio. I didn’t realize it’s daily benefits until I incorporated it into my own daily skincare routine.
It’s hard for me to describe this product. It’s more than a traditional “toner.” It’s a cross between a toner and a serum. It’s like giving your skin a huge drink of mineral water while feeding it all it’s vitamins.
Using this product in your daily skincare routine will basically AMP up your routine. The best part, it’s quite inexpensive considering the loaded ingredients.
I had a hard time trying to explain all the skin benefits this mist as to offer. So instead, I broke down the ingredients for you in the order in which they appear in the formula.
There’s no way you’ll read the ingredients and benefits and not want to slather this product all over your body. And for $24.00, you actually CAN afford to!
Critthmum Maritimum Extract AKA Sea Fennel Cell Extract is one of THE best skin care ingredients for anti-aging and over-all skin strength and luster. It’s a natural brightener.
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract: Green tea extract. A botanical ingredient that is naturally rich in antioxidants and other youth enhancing compounds. It reduces redness, inflammation and irritation. It has antibacterial, healing, UV protection properties. It helps to reduce puffy eyes.
Spiraea Ulmaria Flower Extract: Spiraea ulmaria extract, commonly known as meadowsweet, is a plant whose various parts calm factors in skin that lead to signs of irritation. Antioxidant flavonoids and phenolic acids in meadowsweet such as flavonoids rutoside, spiraeoside, and isoquercitrin are believed to be the key contributors to this benefit. Calms redness. This plant extract inhibits an enzyme in skin (5-alpha reductase) that can trigger excess oil production. Therefore, it’s likely to have a noticeable effect on skin’s surface oil for those struggling with oily skin.
Centella Asiatica Extract: Rich in amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and numerous potent phytochemicals. They’ve been found to calm inflammation, speed wound healing, stimulate new cell growth, build collagen, and improve circulation.
Leucine: One of the nine essential amino acids. Lysine helps visibly firm skin’s surface by reinforcing its supportive elements.
NOTE: Amino acids are naturally present in skin, as part of what’s called our natural moisturizing factors (NMFs). Within the uppermost layers, amino acids work as conductors, orchestrating a complex “concert” that allows our skin to thrive and stay hydrated.
One of the ways they do this is by working in harmony with aquaporins (the body’s water transport system) to move moisture throughout skin. The amino acids help maintain skin’s smoothness and hydration.
Some amino acids work as antioxidants while others go beyond and play an even greater role by helping skin create more of its own antioxidants, such as glutathione.
They also help strengthen skin’s natural defense system, making it less likely to show signs of aging from environmental damage.
Valine: Another Essential Amino Acid
Tyrosine: Another amino acid complex that functions as a skin-conditioning and brightening agent.
Arginine: Helps protect the skin from free radicals, increase skin hydration, and boost collagen production. Arginine has been shown to also have antioxidant activity. Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals, the unstable molecules that contribute to the formation of premature wrinkles and fine lines on the skin.
Another function of arginine in skin care products is to increase skin hydration by acting as a humectant. A humectant is a substance that often has a molecular structure with several hydrophilic (water-loving) groups. This structure allows humectants to attract and retain the moisture in the air nearby through absorption, drawing the water vapor into or beneath the surface.
Arginine also helps to synthesize components of the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF), such as ceramides, cholesterol, urea, and glycosaminoglycans.
Lysine: An essential Amino Acid that helps visibly firm skin’s surface by reinforcing its supportive elements.
Sodium Citrate: Balances the pH levels in the skin.
Citric Acid: Used to adjust the pH of products to prevent them from being too alkaline. (Super Important!) NOT to be confused with a high percentage to exfoliate.
Pomegranate Extract: A powerful fruit rich in polyphenols like anthocyains, ellagic acid, and many other plant polyphenols. Effective in detoxing the skin of free radicals while also repairing skin that could have been damaged from environmental factors like UV radiation.

Leontopodium Alpinum Meristem Cell Culture: Powerful antioxidant that exhibits skin rejuvenating properties including helping reduce fine lines. Inhibits collagenase and hyaluronidase to limit hyaluronic acid degradation and skin firmness loss. Contains cell protective properties.
