Incorporating an active we commonly formulate with, Matrixyl 3000 (used for it's anti-aging, wrinkle fighting, and skin lifting qualities) to our Kigellia Extract (addresses sun damage, promotes smoother, tighter skin and elasticity) we knew we were on to something good. Little did we know how amazing this new product would really be! Amped up with Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (promotes skin elasticity and firmness), our Bio-Active Neck Firming Serum came to life and is now available for those who need a little pick me up where gravity and time is only bringing them down.
Method of Application
Apply to clean skin two times a day during the water soluble phase of your skin care routine (after you cleanse, tone, and exfoliate... before you apply any creams, lotions, or oils)
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 their shelf life. Shelf life for most products is 9 - 12 months. Vitamin C and VitaResurface products should always be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
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 keep your products out of high humidity, heat, direct light and keep in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9 - 12 months. The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Serums or the Salicylic Acid Serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration
Hydrosols - Remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add into a separate, sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate all carrier oils although some of the very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it should liquefy. If not, setting the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shaking the bottle will hopefully turn to a liquid. ^There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil. Refrigeration is not necessary but it surely won't hurt.
Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.
Co2 Extracts - These should always be refrigerated.
Butters - We suggest refrigerating our "skincare' butters. You can take out what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - Keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - All herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and dry location.
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - These are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls the constituents from each herb. Root, Trunk, Leaves, and Flowers. Extracts have a shelf life of 3-5 years. They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
