Aurum’s calming birch serum offers soothing nourishment for dehydrated and reactive skin. It is suitable for sensitive, atopic acne prone and post-procedure skin. Once applied, skin feels hydrated and smooth with a slight matte finish.
Aurum was born of a deep love for the Yukon; the haunting beauty of its landscape and the dauntless nature of its people. It is here, on the traditional territory of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, that friends and co-founders Elise and Joanne found inspiration amidst the luminous trunks of boreal birch (betula neoalaskana). In forestry, birch is known as a pioneering species for its ability to spread across bare and fire-swept land. With casual elegance the trees flourish, withstanding harsh conditions while quietly shedding twigs and leaves, season after season, until the ground is fertile enough to welcome other species. This became the impetus that led the co-founders to tap into the subarctic application of raw birch water as a curative tonic.
