“Press and massage a few drops of ELIXIR onto your freshly cleansed, slightly wet skin, and experience just how quickly this potent serum will become the best part of your skincare routine, simplifying it like never before.
I made this ambitiously nourishing and protective formula to be the only oil-serum you’ll ever need. My hope is that this brings you peace to your skin and mind.”
Dr. Aïcha Sebaa
the best of both worlds
ELIXIR is a potent, multi-functional complexion-correcting lipid serum full of carefully curated ingredients that bring forth your skin’s natural luminosity.
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 loved ones wanted it, too. So she set out to create superior, skin-loving skincare that Mother Nature could stand by.
After experimenting with a slew of ingredients and formulas, ELIXIR came alive in carefully crafted seasonal iterations. She used this formula as a companion to rejuvenating facial gua sha massage and as a standalone beauty potion. It quickly became essential to her and all those who got a hold of a fresh bottle. Now, you too can claim this as a gift to your skin.
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.
This unique Spring/Summer formula is a powerhouse of antioxidants including premium stable vitamin C ester, plant-derived collagen-boosting amino acid DPHP, and skin-healing bisabolol from chamomile, along with the anti-pollution hero, Lipochroman-6, which triple scavenges reactive carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen species.
Supercritical fluid extractions and slow solar infusions of nutritive nigella sativa, lithospermum root, red raspberry leaf, and gracious jasmine blossoms are laced in carefully selected cold-pressed oils like cucumber and wild melon to balance, nourish, renew, and enliven your complexion.
Patented date seed, lithospermum root, and elderberry extracts condition and smooth the skin while increasing your robust skin barrier’s natural defense mechanisms against indoor and outdoor pollution.
Notes of aromatherapy add a touch of indulgence and will bring ease to your mind without compromising the skin—azulene-rich blue tansy is the sweetest fit. Nothing short of the best swims in this carefully crafted formulation. It’s truly a multi-functional and multi-correctional essential in your skincare regimen.
Artisanal Batches from California
Dr. Sebaa Skin Co. holds true to traditional herbal medicine and is handcrafted in small batches in Southern California. Every single product is cared for and treated as a gift—from curating to mixing and filling to shipping. The result is something totally unique and meant just for you (and those whom you extend to.)
As nature craves change herself, so too do our formulas. A compliment to the seasons and peak bio-availability of ingredients, each iteration of ELIXIR is carefully crafted. Despite the variations in seasonal batches, the effect and potency remain the same. Embrace this. Consider it nature’s signature. And know that what you hold, in this moment, is perfectly yours.
How do i integrate elixir in my skincare routine?
ELIXIR blends beautifully in any skincare routine. As a facial oil serum, ELIXIR is a nourishing moisturizer and antioxidant serum in one. Simply cleanse, apply a toner/essence if desired, and massage ELIXIR into your skin. Alternatively, add a few drops of ELIXIR into your daily moisturizer for an added boost or your makeup for a fine dewy finish. ELIXIR may also be patted on areas of the skin that require more care. ELIXIR is also suitable as a part of your GUA SHA FACIAL MASSAGE routine to add more slip and assist your smooth supple skin tone. ELIXR can be used day (before sunscreen) and night (alone or before heavier creams/balms).
RETINOL NOTE: If you’re using a retinol product, skip ELIXIR on the nights you’re using retinol as ELIXIR is high in vitamin C, which may not be a suitable mix for some. Consult your dermatologist regarding your individual skin’s needs and tolerances.
ELIXIR is a wonderful treatment for the morning after your retinol use and on nights you’re not using retinol.
Is elixir good for my skin type?
ELIXIR is designed to support your skin’s vital lipid barrier and is suitable for all skin types including sensitive, acne-prone, maturing, and combination skin.
Will elixir clog my pores?
As a perfectly oil soluble formulation that absorbs harmoniously in the skin, ELIXIR will not clog your pores. ELIXIR is a carefully crafted formula with soothing and penetration enhancing ingredients that ensure your skin enjoys the full goodness of every drop. The ingredients used are low on the comedogenicity scale with low surface tension. Your skin will find ELIXIR to be quite the treat and will happily soak it up.
Is elixir good for acne prone skin?
While there are numerous skin conditions with a plethora of causes, here’s what we can say: the ingredients are superb and incorporate botanicals that are exceptional at mending the skin’s woes. Specific to acne, our linoleic rich fatty acid matrix laced with black cumin seed, prickly pear, elderberry, and schisandra work in synergy to combat common acne among other skin healing benefits. Dr. Sebaa also shares internal issues worth assessing for acne. Follow us to learn more about how to beautify your skin inside-out and outside-in @drsebaa and @drsebaaskin.
Is elixir safe during pregnancy or nursing?
We love Mamas! Dr. Sebaa developed her formulas with pregnancy and nursing in mind and used 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. ELIXIR 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. Stable collagen-boosting vitamin C also assists with collagen production so that you can retain your plumpness longer, and the synergy of other ingredients help 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 elixir last me?
There are about 200 pumps in every 30ml bottle—about 2-seasonal of use, depending on how much you use daily. We’ve been hearing that one bottle lasts surprisingly long given how beautifully potent and easy to spread it is. We hope you enjoy every bit and come back for more skin goodness.
What is the shelf life for elixir?
Once opened, the shelf life of ELIXIR is 9 months. While it may be fine for a few months past this point, this product is most potent when fresh—try to use within 9 months of opening. Please keep away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. No need to refrigerate.
Do you use fragrances?
We do not use any artificial fragrances in our products. The aroma you smell is a waltz of premium ingredients along with supercritical and hydro-distilled oils that are not only beneficial to the skin but calming to the mind. The resulting scent is one that imparts benefits to the whole—mind, body, and soul. Breathe deep. Exhale slow. Enjoy every facet of this botanically intelligent formula.
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.
Here is a brief sheet of some of the SOLUTIONS layered into:

"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!"
"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!"
"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."
"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!!!"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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 ;)"
"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."
