Garden of Wisdom's Manuka Honey Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a must have for anyone with fragile, irritated, hurting, acne prone, blemish prone, hyper-pigmented, and uneven textured skin. Manuka Honey 16+, made from the pollen of Tea Tree flowers, is an amazing natural product. Stronger than average honey in every aspect, Manuka Honey is incredibly healing and an amazing antibacterial. Manuka Honey has been used to treat wounds, and even cure drug resistant strains of bacteria, making it perfect for fighting acne and stubborn blemishes. Even though powerful, Manuka Honey is gentle and great for any skin type. Extremely healing and soothing, Manuka Honey is great for sensitive and damaged skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a famous active known for its ability to hold over 1,000 times its weight in water. This ability makes it one of the best hydrators a person could turn to. Hyaluronic acid also protects skin, while allowing it to breathe. It causes skin to appear more plump, fills in fine lines, and dries quickly without leaving a sticky residue on the skin.
Method of Application
Apply a few drops of this serum on your clean finger tips, and smooth it across clean skin. Use during the water soluble phase of your skin routine (after you cleanse, tone, and exfoliate, but before you apply any oils or creams). Spritzing with spring water, hydrosol or one of our fruit hydrating mists first will allow this serum to glide across your skin evenly and without the familiar tugging of the skin.
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!
