2.5% Panthenol (B5)
9% Green Tea Extract (liquid)
40% aloe vera gel (99.9% from Garden of Wisdom)
10% seamollient (liquid algae extract)
30% Hyaluronic Acid serum (1% premade)
0.5% Optiphen preservative
(note: I used the maximum recommended concentration of actives ingredients) You end up with a gel consistency serum that has a pretty silky feel (I had to play around a bit to get the texture right so that it wasn’t sticky and not too thin)
At the moment I like layering my night time skin care, so I apply this after a shower, apply a moisturiser on top, then massage a treatment oil to seal it all in (I’m using my Marie Veronique Anti Aging Oil+, which I review here) As with all my DIY skin care products, I’m always experimenting with new ingredients with each new batch, so I’ll see how this batch goes for the next 2 weeks and probably play around with tweaking percentages and/or adding new ingredients. ?
Why Niacinamide and NAG?
