WHAT'S IT MADE OF?
BAUME is an opulent formulation made with the finest butters, botanical extracts, and cold-pressed oils to give your skin nourishment and deeply restorative moisture. Naturally essential-oil free, the aroma stems from the velvety touch of rose wax and traditional whole-plant infusions.
BAUME is perfect for skin that’s feeling dry, agitated, and sensitized or if your skin could use a plumping boost.
╰ Melt a small dollop in between your fingertips and press onto your wet skin. BAUME can be used externally on any skin surface, head to toe.
╰ Mix with a generous amount of water or a hydrosol in the palms of your hands to create a creamy experience—the balm will transform into a pudding-like cream with high friction and water.
╰ Layer BAUME on top of ELIXIR and/or other serums you’re using to lock in the healthy-aging benefits.
╰ For an extra indulgent treatment, apply a thicker veil at night for a decadent overnight mask. If you’re experiencing any dry patches or stripped skin, simply wet the area and massage BAUME onto your skin, finishing it off with pressing motions. Wait a few seconds while the gorgeous formula integrates with your skin.
WHAT IS THE MASCOT FOR BAUME?
The artwork is a dreamy companion to the hard-working formulas you’ll find here. The goal is always to connect with nature, tangibly through the freshly sourced botanical ingredients to the surreal and whimsical illustrations—taking your senses through the endless potential of the natural world.
Each formula in the Dr. Sebaa Skin series has an overarching mascot. BAUME holds the serenity of a swan. 🦢
⛲ Just as a swan glides effortlessly on the water, this balm can help the skin glide into a state of radiance, calm, and rejuvenation. The nourishing ingredients in the balm can help to restore the skin’s lipid barrier, repair damage, and provide intense moisture, much like the soft, waxy feathers of a swan protect and preserve her delicate beauty.
🪶 Furthermore, just as a swan is known for its elegant, radiant appearance, this balm can help the skin to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion. The ingredients in the balm help to soothe and calm irritated skin, reduce inflammation, and provide antioxidants and other nutrients that protect against environmental stressors.
✨ Whether you are looking to improve your skin health, calm irritation, or achieve a radiant complexion, this balm can help you to achieve your goals and embrace your inner swan.
“Our skin is a remarkable organ, and there are times when it needs extra attention.
Whether it’s because of environmental or internal distress, we want to give our skin the care it deserves while respecting its natural functions.
BAUME came to be when I wanted to create an industrious and wholesome skin-restorative solution for my patients and loved ones suffering from dry skin. This healing balm is a versatile formula that can help prevent rapid water loss, alleviate scaly skin, and serve as an indulgent overnight mask for a plumper, more supple complexion.
The formulation weaves herbal medicine and modern science into a botanically-rich and fresh salve that provides a cushion of comfort for your skin.
I put a lot of love into creating this luxurious yet practical treatment, and I’m excited to share it with you!”
– Dr. Aïcha Sebaa, Founder x Formulator
the best of both worlds
BAUME is a nourishing and deeply restorative face and body balm, designed to provide extra care and moisture to dry and stressed skin.
Dr. Sebaa spent years refining her formulas and the results continue to deliver. As a busy mother and clinician, she wanted to simplify her skincare regimen and harness the beauty of botanical intelligence with contemporary dermatology. And she wasn’t the only one—her clients and students wanted it, too. So she set out to create superior, skin-loving skincarethat Mother Nature could stand by.
After experimenting with a slew of ingredients and formulas, she developed a tightly edited series of skin-loving formulas that simplify and elevate your routine. What you’ll find here is straight from the heart and years of development. It’s such a joy to share this with you!
Ensuring the freshness, permeability, stability, and synergy of all the ingredients remains key when designing any formula. To further support this, Dr. Sebaa’s skincare products are housed in biophotonic dark violet glass.
Once used by ancient Egyptians as a preservation vessel, this unique glass adds additional UV protection and extends the shelf-life of the already fresh ingredients. Now, this is extended to you as a way to provide additional care for your skin treats.
BAUME includes a variety of intentionally selected botanical ingredients that provide a range of benefits to the skin—always, better together. Some of the key ingredients are known for their moisturizing properties, such as Candlenut Oil, Milk Thistle Oil, Japanese Snow Rose Oil, Murumuru Butter, and Beeswax. These ingredients help to deeply hydrate the skin and improve its overall texture and appearance.
The balm also contains ingredients that are beneficial for repairing and protecting the skin’s lipid barrier. These include Arctic Cranberry Oil, Lauryl Laurate, and Cacay Seed Oil. These ingredients help to restore the skin’s protective shield, which can help to protect it from damage and irritation.
Oat Kernel Extract, Kakadu Plum Oil, Damask Rose Flower Cera, Kokum Butter, and California Jojoba Seed Oil help to calm and soothe irritated skin, and provide a protective cushion that helps to support skin healing.
An additional botanical layer of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties come from Nigella Sativa Extract, Tea Seed Oil, Thyme Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Elderberry Fruit Extract, and chamomile-derived Bisabolol. These ingredients help to reduce inflammation and protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can help to improve its overall health and appearance.
All in all, this formula works in synergy to create a balanced skin-loving experience that you’ll keep reaching to. Overtime, your skin will crack less, feel fully supported, and remain strong through the seasons. A benefit of this is more graceful aging and peace of mind, knowing that you’re giving your skin the best in design and quality.

BAUME BODY PRESSED SERUM FAQ
How do i integrate BAUME in my skincare routine?
BAUME blends beautifully into any skincare routine.
BAUME is a multi-purpose face and body balm that deeply moisturizes, restores, and nourishes the skin, helping to protect it from rapid water loss and mend scaly, stressed, or dry skin.
To incorporate BAUME into your skincare routine, start by using it as a nourishing treatment to provide your skin with extra care and moisture. You can mix a pea-sized amount with a few drops of water or your favorite hydrosol/essence to create a pudding-like texture in your hands. Then, simply press the mixture onto your skin and allow a few minutes for it to absorb fully. You can also use it as an overnight mask for a plump and glowing complexion the next day. BAUME is suitable for use on the face and body, making it a versatile addition to any skincare routine.
Is BAUME good for my skin type?
BAUME is designed to support your skin’s vital lipid barrier and is suitable for all skin types—especially dry, sensitive/sensitized, and maturing skin.
Will BAUME clog my pores?
BAUME is a carefully crafted formula with a balanced fatty acid matrix that integrates harmoniously with the skin’s natural matrix. The ingredients used are supremely high quality and freshly sourced. As BAUME is highly emollient and thick, be especially mindful to apply on thoroughly cleansed and wet skin. Your skin will find BAUME to be quite the treat and will happily soak it up after a few minutes.
Is BAUME safe during pregnancy or nursing?
We love Mamas! Dr. Sebaa developed her formulas with pregnancy and nursing in mind and used BAUME + ELIXIR (along with a few others we’re excited to share in the future ;)) during her pregnancy and nursing days. As always, do consult your doctor about integrating a new product you have questions about.
When will i see results?
Results simply get better with time. Immediate smoothness will be noted as you provide your skin with a wonderful dose of nourishment and moisture replenishment. BAUME is considered preventative medicine for your skin as it acts on multiple planes—protecting your skin from the damaging effects of pollution and weather extremes to nourishing your skin’s barrier so that it can be at its healthiest. The synergy of other ingredients helps bring forth your healthiest skin. Some notice results right away while others see the benefits with time. It all depends on what you’re looking for but we hope you enjoy every drop of this skin loving-treasure as much as we do!
How long will BAUME last me?
Unlike our wonderful ELIXIR, which is best used daily (often twice a day), BAUME can be indulged in less frequently. This results in a longer-lasting formula. We advice using your balm within a year of purchase to ensure the utmost potency of the fresh ingredients. As an overnight rejuvenation treatment, 2x/week is best. As a healing anointment, use liberally as needed on affected areas. A 50ml jar will typically last anywhere from seasonal – 1 year.
Help! My BAUME melted and looks weird.
No need to worry! 🙂 This is perfectly normal. The balmy texture will fluctuate depending on the temperature its in—from rock solid in super-cold temperatures to fully thick liquid in heat. If your balm as fully melted, simply leave it in the freezer for a few minutes. If you notice cracks or “sweat” beads on the surface, this is normal too. It’s like a living sauce of goodness. Embrace it through the changes. The formula will still extend the same wonderful benefits to your skin.
What is the shelf life for BAUME?
Once opened, the optimal shelf life of BAUME is 12 months. Please keep away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. No need to refrigerate.
Does BAUME have any added fragrance? What about essential oils?
Our commitment to using only premium ingredients means that we don’t rely on artificial fragrances in our products. The delicate and soothing aroma of BAUME is a result of its natural components, such as rose wax, which not only benefits the skin but also calms the mind. As an essential-oil free formula, it’s perfect for those with extra-sensitive skin. The rose wax also provides a velvety finish, a traditional extract from herbs like vanilla, arnica, and thyme. Indulge in the botanically intelligent formula and experience every facet of its luxurious nature.
What does it mean that there are “layers of solutions” in your formulas?
As an classically trained herbalist, Dr. Sebaa’s formulas are developed with a systematic approach that considers the individual benefits of an herb and how it works (or doesn’t) with others. Dr. Sebaa brings this depth of herbal materia medica knowledge into every formulation. Some ingredients are “Chiefs”, bringing the primary benefits. Others are “Deputies” or “Assistants” which aid the main functions, bring secondary functions, and/or mitigate the effects of potent Chief herbs. “Guiding” ingredients serve to ensure that the ingredients are directed to where they need to go while “Harmonizing” ingredients loop the formula into one inseparable entity, which work together to bring the best to your ever-healing skin. This may seem like a foreign concept in a time where ingredients are simply studded into a formula for the singular benefits along with a buzzword ridden industry, however, this is indeed the ancient and time-proven way of constructing reliable sub-groups of the whole.

I have more questions. Take me to the FAQ page.
We’re here to help and update our FAQ page (here) with more questions as they come.
"My skin CRAVES Dr. Sebaa's Elixir. I've never had this experience with any other product. I actually look forward to my skincare routine now because massaging all this in feels like the most decadent dessert for my skin. I hope she never stops making this because it's made such a difference on my skin. I use way less products now and have even better results. I can't wait to try everything else Dr. Sebaa makes!"
- Natasha L. - Long Beach, CA
"I'm one of the lucky ones who got to try this serum early on and I've been hooked since. It was my best kept secret and my skin soaks this stuff in like it's nobody's business. I've been through so many face oils and serums since they've been hot for a while but nothing compares to Dr. Sebaa's Elixir. It leaves a silky finish and my complexion glows the whole day. This is a must-have in my skincare routine. I'm so excited that she's bringing it online so I can share it with everyone who's asked me about my skin. The secret is out, ha!"
- Camila J. - Spring Valley, CA
"Literally, 1-2 drops in my foundation and my skin radiate its own sun rays. It's that good. I wear way less makeup because this stuff makes my skin better than I ever thought it could look. I travel a lot and this is what I use before getting on the plane to protect my skin. This is hand down my favorite skincare product."
- Jessica M. - Banker's Hill, CA
"My skincare routine slimmed down so so much since using Dr. Sebaa's botanical facial oil. I don't even use all the creams and lotions and expensive serums I used to layer on before. A pump or two massaged in does the trick. My skin is way less sensitive than it used to be and I feel hydrated all day. This really should be called a Skin Treatment because that's exactly what it does. I'm excited that it'll finally be online so I don't have to keep bugging my friend who's her patient for more!!!"
- Asma A. - Encinitas, CA
"It's been 8 weeks now and I can't believe my eyes. I don't wear any concealer anymore and I just love my skin as it is. My smile lines have smoothed out and the crepiness I used to see before is completely gone!! I used to dread my lengthy morning routine from skincare to makeup but now that my skin looks this good, I barely wear any makeup. If you caught me a few months ago, you would never dare to see me without my full coverage face. Now, my skin breathes."
- Sherlynn D. - Chula Vista, CA
"I only use this at night because I prefer to leave face oils for the evening. During the day, I'll dab a little on my highlight points (Pro-tip from Wayne Goss!). In just a few weeks my skin looks the healthiest it's ever been. I eat really healthy and work out regularly but I still deal with pigmentation issues, dryness, and just a sallow complexion. This stuff just wakes up my skin. I couldn't be happier with this product."
- Valeria P. - Solana Beach, CA
"My facial oiliness issue actually got better and more balanced after using it regularly. I used to use all those oil-free products left me with acne WITH dry skin.. the worst!! But now, I'm acne-free besides the zit here and there and my scars are slowly fading. I wish I could give Sebaa a big hug right now because this is the only thing that's made this much of a difference on my skin. I recommend this to anyone with adult acne prone skin."
- Mylie F. - Del Mar, CA
"What I really like about this is that it's not just a bunch of oils slapped together that I could get from anywhere. I can really tell that a lot of thought went into making this. It has vitamin C, enzymes, and all this good stuff with the plant extracts. It's really an art that I feel I'm massaging into my skin. Since using this a few months ago, I've gotten so many compliments about my skin and I know exactly why that is ;)"
- Dr. Michelle R., Carlsbad, CA
"I just love ANYTHING and EVERYTHING Dr. Sebaa makes! She's been my acupuncturist and herbalist for years and I trust her to the end. I know that she thoroughly researches everything and treats everyone like they're family. When I first tried this, even though my expectations were pretty high, I was blown away! First of all, it smells AMAZING..secondly, it really is an anti-aging miracle. I'm in my mid forties and my skin has changed so much."
