Odaja Alchemy

Odaja for dark skin tones, is an intensely nourishing, brightening, and hydrating formula loaded with highly active plants and raw superfoods. Shea Nut, Cocoa, and Coconut Butters keep skin plump and dewy along with skin-replenishing Manjistha and Marshmallow root. Formulated with a focus on brightening and repairing, this performance driven formula is infused with an Antioxidant Complex of Chai Tea, Moringa, Amla, and Chaga Mushroom expertly combined with an Anti-inflammatory Elixir of Plantain, Ashwaganda, and Suma root.

Usage/Application

Eyes for Odaja, is an intensely nourishing and hydrating whipped cream serum. Take a pea sized portion of the concentrate and melt between finger tips. Apply to the entire eye area by massaging in circular motions for a few minutes. Massaging the eye area encourages lymphatic drainage, blood flow, circulation, and cellular oxygenation which minimizes puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines, and dark shadows. This is not your typical eye cream, and we do not believe in the 'dab-and-tap' methodology. Our Eye formula was designed to be massaged into the skin. No need to worry about getting too close to the eyes with this rich cream, since it is formulated with premium food-grade ingredients. It will NOT sting if it gets in your eyes, like other formulas.

Use morning and night. Eyes offers an anti-pollution barrier and contains natural sun protection. This all-in-one product can also be used as an intensive night therapy moisture mask on the entire face, neck, and lips.

Eyes will offer on average 90-120 applications.

Benefits

Formulated to offer performance driven results, PH balanced and oxygenated, this superior hydrating formula offers a pollution barrier and natural sun protection to inhibit oxidative stress and environmental damage. Improves skins elasticity, reduces the appearance of dark shadows and fine lines, visibly evens skin tone, reduces puffiness, hyperpigmentation and inflammation.

Fortified with multi-layered antioxidants, vitamins, and vital nutrients. The Odaja superfood complex is designed to stimulate cell renewal, combat free radical damage, inhibit oxidative stress, and reenergize and awaken tired, aging skin.

Odaja Skin Personality

Dark skin tones contain larger and more numerous fibroblasts, smaller collagen fibre bundles, and more macrophages. The dermis is thicker and more compact in dark skin with the thickness being proportional to the degree of pigmentation. The photo-protective effects of melanin and a thicker and more compact dermis in dark skin tones, minimizes severity of the signs of aging such as formation of crow's feet and wrinkles.

Since inflammation and hyperpigmentation are the main concerns of darker skin, ODAJA is formulated with a focus on brightening and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Though dark skin has a stronger barrier it has lower ceramide levels, so we have added skin-replenishing ingredients to ODAJA to keep dark skin healthy and prevent moisture loss.

Youthful food for your eyes.

After years of searching for a product with the substance, depth, and ability to hydrate my eyes longer than a couple of hours, the search has ended with the intensely nourishing 'Odaja'. After struggling with severe allergies that resulted in dry, cracked and irritated skin under my eyes, I decided to try an eye cream that would pertain to my dry, mature skin, and one full of superfoods and nutrients so I didn't have to fear it being so close to my actual eyes. I first tried 'Kavesi' which I found perfect for starting my mornings with, and if needed in the day. In the evenings before bed, I switch to 'Odaja', which I find hydrates my eyes well past my morning alarm. The aroma of 'Odaja' is by far my favourite, with it's cocoa essence and buttery texture. My eyes feel nourished and reinvigorated daily. I couldn't be happier with this product.

The care and detail that goes into not only the product, but the packaging, is hauntingly beautiful.

Thank you Virginia Stone!

The one for the mornings

This is the one I use in the morning has it has UV protection and it’s for a darker skin. It’s been only one week using it and I already feel the bags in my eyes lighter. Amazing!

Truly Innovative Skincare Product

After trying all 3 products from the Virginia Stone line, I can confidently say 'Eyes' for Odaja is my absolute favorite! I love that each formulation is made to cater to each individual's skin tone, however I cannot really say I noticed a quantifiable/visible difference in results between the 3 formulations (they all work wonderfully well/the same to me - I just personally enjoy the aroma of Odaja the most). This product may be too rich for individuals with oily skin, however could not be more perfect for those with dry and/or mature skin.

Even though this cream is marketed solely as an eye cream, I find it is best used as a night mask applied to the entire face, neck, and décolleté in the even before bed - when I wake up in the morning, the majority of the product is absorbed. I have tried a lot of pricy eye and face creams over the years, and can truly say this product is comparable/superior to the $450+ creams I have tried - without the use of synthetic fragrances, artificial dyes, harsh detergents/dry agents, etc.

Tips: I like taking a nickel-size amount and warming it between my hands until it has a melted/oil-like consistency. Then I close my eyes and press my hands unto my face, neck, décolleté area (pressing on the skin and holding for 1-2 seconds) to create an even surface area coating everywhere applied. Lastly, I rub the remaining product onto the back of my hands and into my cuticles - you cannot forget to take care of your hands! Make sure to store in a cool…
