A simple yet effective blend that acts as a hydrating serum and toner in one. Mild enough for the most sensitive, reactive skin. Initially designed for oily to combination skin types though dry skin types can reap the benefits when used as a micro-emulsion with their facial oil.
We custom blend a mix of hyaluronic acid molecular weights to optimize the skin's ability to hold water for a fresh complexion. The formula is enhanced with aloe vera and fresh distilled green tea hydrosol to clear and soothe inflammation and acne.
The cushioning effect optically smooths fine lines and makes a nice addition to prime your skin before applying makeup.
The sodium hyaluronate percentage is around 1% since higher dilutions tend to dry out the skin. The molecular weight does not go below 80,000 daltons due to research that extremely low weights can cause increased inflammation. Our propriety blend ensures gentle and effective hydration.
Sodium Hyaluronate is a lab created synthetic Hyaluronic Acid (HA) derived from plant based material using fermentation which is a sustainable and vegan friendly alternative. Hyaluronic Acid does not exist naturally in plants, only animals and humans. Some plants can help our natural HA production and there are many amaxing humectant qualities that mildly mimic HA in a range of plants; like marshmallow, violet leaf and many more.
Our Sodium Hyaluronate is Ecocert certified, created using non-gmo plant materials (often starchy vegetables and grains), manufactured in the USA and has environmental stewardship practices to ensure watershed safeguards.
Ritual: After cleansing apply 1-2 pumps to damp or wet skin. While damp apply a small amount of facial oil to soothe inflammation.
If you have dry skin, add a pump of the hyaluronic acid to a couple drops of face oil to your palm and create a micro-emulsion. Massage together onto the skin. Follow up with another layer of just facial oil to lock in the hydration.
For an alternative use: to help the absorption of your facial oil and give a more matte effect, apply the serum as a last step over your facial oil. This is especially helpful for day use underneath makeup.
