If it could somehow do the dishes too-it'd be just about perfect!  Silk Naturals was the first company to release a niacinamide, and vitamin c serum over 10 years ago!  It's a tried-and-true ingredient for us, and we love the results that niacinamide gives us.  Over the years new ingredients have been introduced, so we thought we'd revisit our old friend, and come up with a simple, budget-friendly serum. 

Let's look at the ingredients:

Niacinamide:Helps build keratin, restores ceramides to reduce water loss, regulates oil production, helps fight acne, reduces pore size, reduces irritation, hyperpigmentation, and even fine lines

Snow Mushroom Extract- a superb plant-based hydrator.  It's rich in polysaccarides to help your skin hold moisture.  It's a smaller molecule than hyalauronic acid, so it penetrrates the skin better, and provides deep, lasting hydration.

Licorice root extract- also helps fight hyperpigmentation, redness, and irritation

Wasabi Extract- a powerful anti-oxidant, and anti-microbal ingredient with skin soothing properties

Certified Organic Green Tea extract is loaded with polyphenols and is a fantastic anti-oxident.  It also helps with inflammation, and has slightly astringent qualities, so it feels fresh and lovely.

This is a fantastic skin smoothing all-in one serum for all skin types.  It's Vegan, Gluten Free, and Pregnancy Safe.  pH of 5-5.5  Shelf life 3 months.

We recommend sampling this before committing to the full size.  It's pretty potent stuff.

Instructions:  Apply to skin before moisturizer or sunscreen.  Great day, or night.

It's compatible with everything in our line, BUT can't be used at the same time as our AHA, or BHA toner because if the pH of your skin is below 5 it will cause redness.  Use this serum in the morning, and the acidic toners at night, or give skin about 30 minutes to return to its normal pH after you've used something acidic to avoid redness.  

For even better anti-aging results we recommend adding a Vitamin C serum to your routine.  It will help restore collagen, and give more anti-oxidant protection.
