Twice as strong as our original Oxygen Rich Gel, our Super Charged version is excellent for fighting acne. This product is our replacement for Benzoyl Peroxide. Here at Garden of Wisdom, we are truly opposed to Benzoyl Peroxide. From our research, we have come to strongly believe that benzoyl peroxide, although it helps to kill bacteria and fight acne, ages the skin tremendously over time. Eventually, Benzoyl Peroxide stops working altogether long term. We have learned that Benzoyl Peroxide is unstable, causing free radicals, while stabilized oxygen has the ability to fight the free radicals our skin is subjected to.
We do not believe all oxygen products are created equal. For those fighting acne, we feel they are lacking healthy oxygen to fight the bacteria. Typically, if not always, acneic skin is acidic in nature, so adding healthy oxygen (alkaline) will fight this condition without causing the aging process.
This product does NOT bleach the skin.
Sodium Chloride (Salt) is added to Water to increase electrical conductivity and facilitate the manufacturing process that separates the oxygen molecules from the H2O, and stabilizes the oxygen in the water. (this is a proprietary process from our supplier to achieve this) The end result is a highly stabilized oxygen that is far different than the original ingredients and very very low in sodium and chloride.
Method of Application
This oxygen rich gel can and should be applied twice per day after cleansing and before continuing your routine. This allows the oxygen to feed the skin and control the acne bacteria. Proceed once your skin has dried.
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).
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
