Garden of Wisdom has created a new exciting hydrating serum: A Magnificent Glow Hydrating Serum, which leaves a beautiful glow on your skin. Combining two powerhouse ingredients of polyglutamic acid and pantothenic acid can provide intense hydration and nourishment to the skin. With the addition of two molecular sizes of hyaluronic acid and antioxidant ECGC from Green Tea, this serum helps to boost moisture levels, improve skin elasticity, and promote a smoother complexion. It can be particularly beneficial for those with dry, dehydrated skin or individuals looking to enhance their skin's hydration and overall appearance.
Polyglutamic Acid (PGA) is a naturally occurring biopolymer derived from fermented soybeans. It is often used in skincare products for its excellent moisturizing properties. Polyglutamic Acid (PGA) can hold up to 5000 times its weight in water, making it a highly effective humectant. It forms a film on the skin, h polyglutamic acid and pantothenic acid can provide intense hydration and nourishment to the skin. This serum helps to boost moisture levels, improve skin elasticity, and promote a smoother complexion. It can be particularly beneficial for those with dry, dehydrated skin or individuals looking to enhance their skin's hydration and overall appearance. Pantothenic Acid helps to prevent water loss and keeps the skin hydrated and plump. Pantothenic Acid is also known to enhance the skin's natural exfoliation process, resulting in smoother and brighter skin. Pantothenic Acid, or vitamin B5, is essential for maintaining healthy skin. It synthesizes Coenzyme A, which is required to metabolize fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.
EGCG is a concentrated form of green tea high in epigallocatechin gallate, a potent antioxidant and one of green tea's most active and beneficial components. EGCG has been shown to have anti-aging and skin-soothing properties.
If you have sensitive or reactive skin, you must perform patch tests, as your skin may be more prone to adverse reactions. Patch testing can help you identify potential irritants and prevent more widespread adverse effects when introducing new products or ingredients into your routine.
Method of Application
Apply 5-6 drops to moist skin before oils and creams. Can be applied 2 x per day as necessary. This will feel sticky until it soaks in. Feel what happens the next morning as you rince your face. It becomes incredibly moist and soaks in again!

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. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months.
Vitamin C Serum(s) 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, and direct
light, and keep them in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9-12 months. The only things we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Acid 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
and/or Kept in the Dark
Hydrosols - remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add it 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 temperature and it should liquefy. If not, setting the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shaking the bottle will hopefully turn into 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)
Other Various Raw Ingredients - i.e. Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan, etc. will all have a different shelf life.
