- About Garden of Wisdom
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 their shelf life. Shelf life for most products is 9 - 12 months. Vitamin C 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, direct light and keep in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9 - 12 months. The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic 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
Hydrosols - Remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add 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 temp and it should liquefy. If not, setting the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shaking the bottle will hopefully turn to 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.
