Introducing, The Base Layer

The Base Layer is a nutrient-dense day moisturizer formulated to defend against environmental stress, pollution, and blue light radiation.


Powered by botanical ingredients, plant stem cells, and soothing adaptogenic actives, The Base Layer delivers intense hydration with a subtle matte finish.



Each morning after washing and drying your face:


Scoop a dime-sized amount or less of The Base Layer with your finger. Apply evenly to face and neck.


Start small and apply more product only if necessary; a little goes a long way.



Each jar (1.7oz/50ml) lasts most customers two months.

Committed to Excellence

Caldera + Lab was founded with one pioneering goal: to build a results-driven men’s skincare brand that was uncompromising in its commitment to social and environmental well-being.


We are proudly now one of only 70 US-based personal care companies to receive the prestigious B Corp certification.

What is a B Corp?

B Corporations open their doors to be assessed and monitored by the nonprofit B Lab, to verify that their business practices positively impact employees, communities, and the planet.


Caldera + Lab was graded on everything from supply chain operations and input materials, to charitable giving and employee benefits. Even our choice to use the only biodegradable adhesive in existence on our packaging.
