Garden of Wisdom's Oat Enriched Facial Serum combines the healing powers of oats and honey to hydrate, comfort and calm the skin. Oats have been used across the ages to help soothe itchy, upset skin. Not only do they form a film to help protect skin from dehydration, they also heal and soften skin as well which aids in the lessening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Method of Application
Use this serum as needed to soothe and heal the affected area. Then use as needed for maintenance.
Due to this product having Fermented Oat Extract - also known as Oat Bioferment - it can continue to ferment which lends itself to a fermentation scent. This won't always be present if a batch has just been made. If this is an issue, ask us to scent it please!This serum is complementary to our other healing serums:
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.
