Garden of Wisdom's Blemish Prone Moisturizer (Oil and Wax Free) is formulated to be moisturizing for acne prone skin without the waxes or oils that are in many other products. So many goodies in here. Thyme and Neem Hydrosols, Niacinamide and Azelaic Acid, Manuka Tea Tree Oil and Holy Basil Essential oils (just enough, not too much!) Specialized Liposomes emulsify this without the waxy emulsifiers that often clog skin and cause acne.
NOTE: azelaic acid being phased out for azeloyl glycine.
Method of Application
Apply a pea sized to a dime sized amount, depending on what your skin needs, after the water soluble phase of your routine. Spritzing your face with spring water or a hydrosol will allow this moisturizer to glide gently across your skin. This should be the final step in your skincare routine.
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
Hydrosols - Take out 1/2 oz to 1 oz in a separate spray bottle from your original container and keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator!
Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate ALL carrier oils, they will solidify in some cases. This is FINE all you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it will be liquid again!
There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like coconut oil for instance! That does not need to be refrigerated, but it cannot hurt it either!
Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.
Co2 Oils - These should always be refrigerated.
