(Formula #100-33)

Facial Serum

Why we love it:

Part of a multi-step K-Beauty facial regimen, this face serum features botanical extracts and oils to add moisture to skin and form a protective layer to improve skin barrier function and decrease Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). It makes an excellent primer under foundation or may be added to a day cream for a boost of moisture.

Formulation highlights:

Meadowfoam CP contains higher levels of tocopherols and phytosterols than fully refined grades of vegetable oil. Meadowfoam Seed Oil XPR is blended with Marula, Argan and Rosehip to increase the oxidative stability of these popular oils. Daikon Seed Extract provides a light, smooth non-greasy feel after rub-in and improves skin barrier function. Botanically based preservatives include honeysuckle extract and honeysuckle flower extract.
