Hyaluronic Acid Hydration Serum
Hyaluronic Acid. What is not to love about this very special polysaccharide that is already naturaly occuring in our own bodies. It is responsible for helping to support our connective tissues and protecting and hydrating our cells, especially the cells near the surface of our skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is purported to be capable of attracting and holding up to a thousand times its weight in water! It is considered a humectant and can help draw moisture from the air to the skin and also prevent moisture from evaporating. How cool is that?!
Hyaluronic Acid is known in not just the cosmetic industry, but the medical industry as well, and has increasingly become more of a necessary staple in skin care. It has made its way into most skin regimens by ways of lotions, creams, injectables, serums, gels, body butters, masks, etc.
Prior to formulating this Hyaluronic Serum, I have been purchasing and using it from between $30-$100+ for years on my super sensitive, freckled, light-toned skin. My usual go-to formula consisted of Distilled Water, Aloe Vera Juice, or Floral Waters, Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin. With Trial and Error, I set out to pump up my basic formula and was super charged by the inspiration from extremely reliable sources, research, and personal use. Now my Basic Formula is ANYTHING BUT BASIC!
This Hydrating, Soothing, Skin Softening Serum smells lightly of Rose, due to the Floral Water.
Dispense 1-2 pumps ( 1 is usually sufficient), onto clean and dry fingertips and apply to clean and dry face and neck and/or back of hands, up to twice a day. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer. If irritation occurs, discontinue use, or use less often.
My ingredient list for this serum is: Aloe Vera Juice, Distilled Water, Floral Water (Rose), Extracts of Burdock Root, Cucumber, Rosehip and Goji Berry, Propanediol (Corn-Derived Humectant), Provitamin B5, Vitamin B3, Allantoin, Lactobacillus Ferment (Natural Preservative), 1% Hyaluronic Acid (sometimes referred to as Sodium Hyaluronate).
