So, we were on the phone with your skin the other day, and it told us what it yearns for... hydration, protection, and a little help on slowing down that aging process we're all experiencing. We decided that actions speak louder than words, and have responded with a serum... our Concord Grape AntiOxidant Serum, to be precise. Concord Grapes are full of polyphenols and help to prevent damage to skin cells induced by pollution and other environmental toxins. We decided to amp this serum up with our infamous Hyaluronic Acid, a humectant that can hold more than 1,000 times its weight in water... but, oh no, we were not going to stop there. We also added Resveratrol, an antibacterial, antiviral antioxidant that protects cell degradation, and L-Carnosine (a cell rejuvenating, cell life extending active that protects skin cells from oxidation induced stress). Enjoy! We know your skin will.
Method of Application
Apply one to two times a day during the water soluble phase of your routine (after you cleanse, tone and exfoliate...
before you apply any creams, lotions, and oils).
This serum is excellent to use before a Vitamin C serum as it helps the cells to accept and absorb the Vitamin C.
Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).
Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!
Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.
The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.
Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration
