Younger skin contains abundant amounts of water, so increasing your skin’s water content will help restore the youthfulness of your skin. The pure, distillate water produced from steam distilling plant material for essential oils, hydrosols, contain the properties associated with the oil, but in a less concentrated form. They are gentle, can be used without further dilution and are naturals humectants.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural compound serving as a viscous medium in the tissues of the body and as a lubricant in joints. It is also a humectant, which absorbs and retains moisture, capable of holding 1000 times its weight in water. When hyaluronic acid is plentiful in the skin, the skin looks plump and dewy. However, as we age and our supplies of HA lessen, our skin becomes thin, dull and less hydrated. Due to its high, relative, molecular mass Hyaluronic Acid HMW does not penetrate and instead sits of the skin surface where it binds to water to maintain hydration and cross-links with other HA molecules, to create a temporary barrier, making it very useful in helping to maintain the skin’s barrier function.
Rose hydrosol is soothing and cooling to hot, irritated skin. High in vitamin C, it attacks free radicals and balances sebum production, while the anti-bacterial and astringent properties may help prevent acne and wrinkles.
Neroli hydrosol is a gentle astringent and a great application for oily and acne prone skin as well as sensitive, aging, or problematic skin issues in general.
The preservative used, Leucidal Liquid SF, which is approved for use with organic cosmetics, is derived from fermented radish root, thus providing a safe and natural alternative to preserving product.
Although HA serums are wonderful for all skin types, for oily skin it provides hydration without added oil.
Apply to damp skin, after cleansing and before moisturizing. May be used morning and/or night,
