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 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.
