To hydrate and soothe
Essential Hydration Serum
A unique milky emulsion, The Essential Hydration Serum hydrates, fortifies and plumps the skin for immediate and long-term comfort. A cocktail of 32 biomimetic amino acids, natural moisturising factors (NMF’s) and electrolytes intelligently optimise your skin’s natural water reserves to provide skin-drenching hydration that lasts. Microbiome-loving probiotics and Marula Seed Oil feed your skin essential nutrients whilst Oat Ceramides immediately soothe and fortify the skin barrier, resulting in dewy, plump skin.
Meet your all-in-one hydration and barrier repair serum. The Essential Hydration Serum intensely hydrates, fortifies and firms to instantly revitalizes dry, dehydrated and irritated skin. This three-in-one serum combines 35 compounds that are naturally present in your skin - such as Natural Moisturising Factors, Ceramides and Fatty Acids. Think of these ingredients as a protective coat or the building blocks to your skin - they help keep the outer layer of the skin protected against environmental stressors while encouraging the natural skins processes needed to rebuild the moisture barrier for healthy, hydrated skin.

In the AM and PM, after cleansing, apply 2-3 pumps and massage into your skin. Follow with a moisturiser and/or SPF (in the AM).
**Where in my routine do I apply the Essential Hydration Serum? ** We generally recommend applying your products in order of thinnest-to-thickest in texture, with a few exceptions. With the Essential Hydration Serum, we recommend applying after your thinner textured products, such as a toner, chemical exfoliant or mist. You would then follow with your moisturiser and/or SPF. If you are oily, you may find you are able to skip moisturiser and go straight to SPF due to its milky and nourishing texture.
**How do I layer it with the Pigmentation Corrector Serum? ** We would recommend applying the Pigmentation Corrector Serum first on clean skin and then following with the Essential Hydration Serum since the texture is more viscous.
**Can the Essential Hydration Serum be used every day? ** Yes, the Essential Hydration has been formulated to be used daily and be combined with any other product.
“The Essential Hydration Serum is your hydration and barrier-repair serum all in one. I wanted to create something that felt more substantial than traditional water-based serums by combining both water-loving and lipid-based ingredients in a luxurious emulsion that infuses the skin with skin-identical ingredients. It hydrates, calms, fortifies and protects the skin from external aggressors - you won’t want to be without it!”
