A message from our founder, Jillian Ehrenberg
The Petal + Hive skincare line has been well received and successful for several years. The formulas are all developed in-house. Two cleanser formulas, two serums, and an eye cream are my own formulas, and the beloved Intense Hydration Moisturizer was developed by my husband Jeff, also a cosmetic chemist.
The world of plant-based, clean skincare is moving forward at record speed. There are so many more sophisticated ingredients available than ever before. Ingredient manufacturers hear the demand for natural beauty products and they're developing new products that have the potential to take clean beauty to new places.
I've been following the developments, and over the past year I reformulated the Petal + Hive line to include new ingredients.
As with every formula I bring to market, the new ones produce visible results when you use them, and they feel luxurious when applied to your skin. My goal as a formulator is to set you up with a routine that is easy to follow, feels fulfilling, and results in positive changes in your skin.
The new products are part of an entirely new brand, called Acta Beauty. The brand name “ACTA” comes from the Latin phrase “Acta Non Verba” meaning “Actions Not Words”.
The products in the Acta Beauty line are based on the successful principles behind the Petal + Hive brand, and are boosted with cutting edge components.
If you liked Petal + Hive's Intense Hydration Moisturizer, you'll love Acta Beauty's Moisture Infusion Day Cream.
Moisture Infusion Day Cream is a unique moisturizer, perfect for dry or sensitive skin.
Composed of "liquid crystals" and rich botanical extracts, this moisturizer feels silky smooth all day long without ever feeling heavy or greasy.
Quench your skin’s deepest thirst and promote the delicious, dewy glow we all seek with our Moisture Infusion Day Cream.
This incredibly rich and luscious cream delivers optimal hydration to the skin both instantly and consistently throughout the day. Acta Beauty Moisture Infusion Day Cream is designed to help reduce trans epidermal water loss and retain moisture, plumping the skin and aiding in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Overnight Moisture Revitalizing Cream is a completely new formula that is specifically designed to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Skin cells are primed to receive active ingredients and hydration at night. This rich, nourishing cream delivers the goods via our cutting edge star ingredient - plant-based stem cell extract derived from pure, non GMO oranges that works to refine and renew skin.
Gotu Kola, a supercharged healer that has been used for centuries, helps relinquish dryness, calms and protects skin’s lipid barrier.
Petal + Hive's popular Firming Serum and Brightening Serums have been reformulated, and their Acta Beauty formulations are even more effective.
The form of Vitamin C that was in the Brightening Serum (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) is also present in the current Acta Beauty Illuminating Serum with Vitamin C.
The new Acta Beauty serum also contains a second form of Vitamin C (3-Glyceryl Ascorbate) that offers the "Vitamin C glow" we all want to see on our skin.
The Illuminating Serum with Vitamin C is a delight to apply because it's an emulsified serum, meaning the form has a thin lotion-like consistency. This format helps to deliver the actives into the skin and provides a substantial moisture layer.
Bakuchiol is one of the hottest new ingredients in skincare. An alternative to retinol, it can be used day or night, without unwanted side effects such as sun sensitivity, stinging, or burning.
Our new Resurfacing Serum with Bakuchiol contains 1% pure Bakuchiol and is designed to reduce the occurrence of acne and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you liked the texture of Petal + Hive Firming Serum, and appreciated its hydrating benefits, you'll enjoy the Resurfacing Serum with Bakuchiol, with it's added anti-aging and anti-acne boost!
Ever since we introduced the Petal + Hive Eye Cream with Stem Cells and Collagen, so many lines and wrinkles have seemed to disappear!
The reformulated Acta Beauty Luxe Moisture Eye Cream with Bakuchiol is a moisture rich, thick cream that, like it's Petal + Hive cousin, contains botanical stem cells, vegan collagen, hyaluronic acid, and botanical extracts.
To this luxurious formula, we added Bakuchiol, the same form of the retinol alternative that is found in Acta Beauty Resurfacing Serum with Bakuchiol.
If you liked Petal + Hive's Collagen and Stem Cell Eye Cream, you'll love Acta Beauty's Luxe Moisture Eye Cream with Bakuchiol.
This one-of-a-kind formula works hard to decrease the appearance of fine lines around the eyes. A concentrated, exquisitely textured cream, Acta Beauty Luxe Moisture Eye Cream provides superior benefits thanks to the addition of a unique form of vegan collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Apply the eye cream both morning and evening to experience the amazing brightening, firming, and soothing effects faster! Those who wear makeup to conceal dark circles may find that with regular use, they will find themselves using less as time goes on and the skin continues to appear brighter and more radiant.
Your choice of cleanser is one of the most personal parts of your skincare routine. How a cleanser feels on your skin, and how your skin responds to it, is very individual.
Some of us need a cleanser with exfoliating actives. Exfoliants will gently remove a layer of dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking more smooth and vibrant.
For those of us with dry or acne prone skin, an oil-based cleanser works well because it lifts dirt, oil, and makeup without disrupting the skin barrier.
Acta Beauty offers two cleansers - one is an exfoliating cleanser, and the other is a jelly cleanser, which functions similarly to an oil cleanser. If you liked the Petal + Hive Exfoliating AHA Cleanser, you'll like the Skin Refining Cleanser with AHA and BHA.
Minimize the appearance of fine lines, improve skin texture, and achieve the ultimate glow with our Skin Refining Cleanser.
This unique formula works to exfoliate and encourage the turnover of new skin cells with naturally derived alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) from sugar cane, citrus, and sugar maple. AHAs are powerful ingredients for addressing acne, brightening the skin, modulating hyperpigmentation, and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Wash away the day with our uber powerful yet gentle Vitamin Splash Jelly Cleanser.
This cleanser works hard to remove makeup, impurities, and dirt. This innovative gel formula contains lightweight, all-natural silicone alternatives, making its texture far more delightful than that of traditional oil cleansers. Our Vitamin Splash Jelly Cleanser is boosted by the addition of Vitamin C and Watermelon Fruit Extract - two of nature’s best skin brighteners.
