HYALURONIC ACID HYDRATING SERUM
A simple yet effective hydrating blend of just 4 ingredients. Mild enough for the most sensitive, reactive skin. A custom blend of different hyaluronic acid molecular weights to optimize the skin's ability to hold water for a fresh complexion, the formula is enhanced with cold-processed aloe vera and fresh in-house distilled green tea hydrosol to clear and soothe inflammation and acne. The cushioning effect optically smooths fine lines and makes a nice addition to prime your skin before applying makeup.

Carbon footprint consideration: regionally sourced percentage refers to ingredients grown within the west coast of the USA and southwest Canada…where the sourcing is concentrated in Oregon, including Live Botanical’s micro-garden.
The sodium hyaluronate percentage is around 1% since higher dilutions tend to dry out the skin. The molecular weight does not go below 80,000 daltons due to research that extremely low weights can cause increased inflammation. Live Botanical’s propriety blend ensures gentle and effective hydration.
Sodium Hyaluronate is a lab-created Hyaluronic Acid (HA) derived from plant-based material using fermentation which is a sustainable and vegan-friendly alternative. Hyaluronic Acid does not exist naturally in plants, only animals and humans. Some plants can help our natural HA production and there are many amazing humectant qualities that mildly mimic HA in a range of plants; like marshmallow, violet leaf, and many more.
Live Botanical’s Sodium Hyaluronate is Ecocert certified, created using non-GMO plant materials (often starchy vegetables, beans, and grains), manufactured in the USA and has environmental stewardship practices to ensure watershed safeguards.
After cleansing apply 1-2 pumps to damp or wet skin. While damp, apply a small amount of facial oil to soothe inflammation.
If you have dry skin, add a pump of the hyaluronic acid to a couple of drops of face oil to your palm and create a micro-emulsion. Massage together onto the skin. Follow up with another layer of just facial oil to lock in the hydration.
For an alternative use: to help the absorption of your facial oil and give a more matte effect, add the serum under and a second layer on top of your facial oil. This is especially helpful for day use underneath makeup.
