Juniper berries are extremely healing for damaged skin, and can help address eczema flares. Can also be used to help treat minor wounds. As an antiseptic and antibacterial, Juniper berries help to eliminate acne and prevent future blemishes. Anti-inflammatory and soothing, Juniper berries calm and repair irritated skin.
Formulated in a liposome base, our Hydrosol Gels penetrate the epidermis more easily than other hydrators, while offering the properties of each hydrosol used. With a balance of corresponding essential oils formulated in a gel base, Hydrosol Gels restore water, nutrients and moisture back into 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).
List of Ingredients
- Juniper Berry Hydrosol anti-inflammatory, calming, wound healing, excellent to calm eczema flares, antiseptic
Liposome Base (soy based) penetration enhancer
Liposomes frequently favor the disposition of encapsulated active ingredients in the epidermis and dermis, while the permeation rate is decreased. This helps to fix active ingredients to the outermost skin layers as desired for cosmetic products. Simultaneously, the washing out may be delayed so that, for example, aqueous sun care products containing liposome-encapsulated UV filters are water-resistant.
- Gluconolactone (Glucono Delta Lactone) preservative, natural
- Cellulose Gum natural thickener
- Juniper Berry Essential Oil anti-inflammatory, calming, wound healing, excellent to calm eczema flares, antiseptic
At first I didn't know what to do with my Juniper Berry Hydrosol Gel sample. So what the heck, I tried it on the broken capillaries on my cheeks. I can't believe how it's minimizing the redness and the size of those annoying little veins. I hope this becomes a permanent product because I want to buy some!
I received a sample of the Juniper Berry Hydrosol Gel. This stuff is amazing. I had a small flare up of seborrheic dermatitis with the itching and flaking. After I cleansed my face, I put this on as a spot treatment on the flare ups and the itching was soothed immediately. It took care of the flaking. I didn't even have to moisturize. Really great stuff. :)
I also received the *Juniper Berry Hydrosol Gel* as my sample. I love the texture of this. It's a nice feel to smooth on my skin. The thicker weight is easy to apply and see where it's going. (Feels like less waste to me than some of the liquid serums. I always worry I'm losing some of those in application.) It smells fantastic. Nice fresh clean scent. Not overpowering or unpleasant. Smells botanical and light. I am using this in conjunction with other healing products, and I feel like this has wonderful healing properties! My active blemishes are improving and don't seem to be nearly as problematic as they previously were. Any active blemish that is popping up is much less troublesome and moves along quickly. Everything is healing rapidly. This is a fantastic product for healing, soothing, & hydrating. It's a pleasant product to apply, smell and use. It's beneficial and a great new idea. I really enjoy it! Thank you!
I have the Juniper Berry Hydrosol Gel and it's amazingly healing! I still don't know if I'm purging because of switching from prescription acne/rosacea topicals to GoW products, or purging from, or even having a reaction to, simple degunking sessions that I've done recently, but it's really soothing my painful skin, the acne blemishes, and the rosacea flare-up. It's also taking care of some of the thick, dry, flaky patches by finally evening them out. I'm hoping if I keep using it twice a day that it might also smooth out the weird, rampant skin bumpiness that has suddenly appeared all over the unblemished areas of my skin. This is a great product!
I am using the Juniper Berry Hydrosol Gel because I'm LOVING it so I'm sticking with that for now but might also try out the GoW Tea Tree Hydrosol Gel.
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.
