Ayuna celebrates the endless potential for innovation through their annual reveal of Terra, a luxury leading edge formula, always contained within a handmade ceramic vessel. As we approach 2021, Ayuna reveals within this discovery its newest Terra innovation, Terra Bella.
Terra Bella is an artisan innovation by Ayuna, the pioneering brand that elegantly bridges green chemistry and sustainable luxury. Terra Bella is a scientific breakthrough in both; the first ever topical application of cannabis sativa cell cultures, recognized as the most innovative ingredient in the world.
Terra Bella, a limited edition face cream, is the first formula to feature cannabis sativa stem cell technology. The supreme cream is held in a delicate vessel made of clay. While the ceramic pot was created to be a keepsake, Terra Bella was developed to be decidedly ephemeral. Once this limited edition runs out, Terra Bella will cease, but the Terra technology will live on.
Never before used in a cosmetic application, Ayuna has safely extracted rich cannabis sativa cell cultures in a unique cocktail of terpenes and micro-lipids that unlock our skin’s endocannabinoid receptors to stimulate the epidermal neuroendocrine cascade, increasing oxytocin in the skin.
This leads to the experience of embodied beauty - a radiance that beams from the inside out, as feel-good hormones are released throughout the body.
HOW TO USE ITTerra's dense texture transforms on your fingertips and melts perfectly into the skin when applied, quickly penetrating. Apply daily - morning and/or night - onto cleansed skin. Using your fingertips, gently massage onto the face, neck and décolletage, including the eye contour.

ABOUT THIS BRAND
Ayuna was founded by Isabel Ramos and Begoña San Juan, two seasoned beauty professionals with a vision for innovation. Begoña is a master esthetician, passionate beauty industry professional and expert in product development, Spa and Wellness therapies and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Isabel Ramos has a PhD in chemistry and is an expert in Green Technology and the development of natural cosmetics with a unique understanding the science of the skin, biochemical and biophysical mechanisms and the art of product textures.
Through Ayuna's essential skincare products, Begoña and Isabel introduce a whole new dimension to how to treat the skin based on topical fasting and well-aging. Topical fasting has the same basis as general fasting; eliminate overstimulation, limit intake and provide a balanced diet to allow for self-repair and self-regeneration mechanisms to be immediately activated. Well-aging applies the principles of epigenetics and the brain-skin connection to refocus our view of skin aging. Research shows that our thoughts, lifestyle and environment can alter our DNA. Ayuna skincare embraces this research, with a slow and intentional approach to aging that gives us the space to connect with beauty in a positive way and adapt the teachings of mindfulness to the realm of beauty. Begoña and Isabel’s experience in skincare, combined with their extensive understanding of the sophisticated beauty client, active ingredients and application methodology led them to a natural evolution in the field of skincare. From this alliance of knowledge and experience Ayuna, Less Is Beauty was born – an evolutionary scientific-botanical approach to cosmetics that favors simple beauty and a commitment to pure, effective and clean cosmetics.
I discovered Ayuna through Beauty Heroes, and loved their light rejuvenating cream that I received in one of my first boxes. This terra bella cream is more like their rich rejuvenating cream - it’s a bit heavy for daytime use (at least for me, with combination skin), but it works wonders at night. My husband uses it, too. My cheeks are frequently pink, and this cream helps to maintain the right amount of moisture, and I’ve noticed a reduction in the redness. I only need a small bit each night, so I expect it’ll last me at least six months. The ceramic jar is really nice, too, and I’ll reuse it once I’ve finished the terra bella. This is an amazing discovery!
Thank you so much for sharing your experience Andi. We are thrilled we were able to introduce you to Terra Bella and so happy to hear you and your husband are both fans. It is definitely the perfect overnight cream for the winter months.
Love the earth friendly clay jar but in practice it’s very **** to screw back on after use. The cream itself is very heavy and seams to sit on the skin’s surface even after rigorous massage - unless mixed with an oil. I have extremely dry and rosacea prone skin.Again, beautiful packaging - didn’t love the cream.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Nene. Terra Bella is certainly a thicker cream so a little goes along ways. We really encourage using a bit less to see if you can make it work for you but it does take a bit to massage into the skin.
