HA Hydrating Serum

  • 50 ml

    A simple yet effective hydrating blend of just 4 ingredients. Mild enough for the most sensitive, reactive skin. The custom blend of HA molecular weights optimizes the skin's ability to hold water for a fresh complexion. The formula is enhanced with cold-processed aloe vera and fresh distilled green tea hydrosol to clear and soothe inflammation and acne.

    •Applied as a soothing, moisturizing treatment before facial oil

    •Cushioning effect optically smooths fine lines

    •Works well as a primer before applying makeup

    This product is good for:

  • 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 of 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, add the serum under and a second layer on top of your facial oil. This is especially helpful for day use underneath makeup.

    Recommended oils to be blended to create a customized moisturizer:

    For Oily Sensitive Skin: Awaken Clearing Oil

    For Combination Skin: Whipped Balancing Balm

    For All Skin: First Light Brightening Oil Serum

  • Formula notes from Live Botanical:

    “The sodium hyaluronate percentage is about 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. This proprietary blend ensures gentle and effective hydration.

    Sodium Hyaluronate is a lab-created synthetic HA derived from plant-based material using fermentation which is a sustainable and vegan-friendly alternative. HA does not exist naturally in plants, only animals and humans. Some plants can help our natural HA production and there are many amazing 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, beans, and grains), manufactured in the USA and has environmental stewardship practices to ensure watershed safeguards."
