Inspired by moonlight glistening on the smooth surface of the Naiad’s pond; this brightening, clarifying, texture refining serum is bursting with bio-actives. Niacinamide visibly brightens, refines the appearance of pores, and balances sebum production. Bakuchiol is a naturally derived retinol-alternative that helps lessen the appearance of fine lines, and visibly smooth skin texture. Panthenol and Milk Thistle soothe, protect, and hydrate. Butterfly Pea Flower and Green Tea provide antioxidant protection.
This oil-free, hydrating serum features 4% Niacinamide, 2% Panthenol, and 1% Bakuchiol Extract. These bio-actives in these specific percentages are gentle, results driven, and suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.
Niacinamide: Also known as Vitamin B3, this skincare superhero has SO many benefits for the skin. It is a true multi-tasker that is perfect for both maturing and acne-prone skin. Some of Niacinamide's benefits include; minimizing the appearance of pores, improving the look of uneven or dull skin tone, softening the appearance of fine lines, balancing overactive sebum, and supporting a weakened skin barrier. It is the perfect ingredient to reach for if you are seeking smooth, bright, even looking skin.
Bakuchiol Extract: Bakuchiol has a wide range of skin smoothing and antioxidant benefits. It can help refine the skin's texture and tone, firm the appearance of skin, and reduce the look of fine lines. It is gaining popularity in skincare as a natural and gentle alternative to retinol, with people seeing similar benefits without the side effects that can come hand in hand with traditional retinol use. Bakuchiol is suitable for sensitive and reactive skin and can help calm visual redness.
Panthenol: Also known as pro-vitamin B5, Panthenol helps to soothe and soften the skin. This vitamin does double duty as both a humectant and an emollient, leading to instantly hydrated and softened skin. Panthenol contributes to the gorgeous slippery skin feel of Naiad Nectar Serum, making it an absolute joy to use.
Butterfly Pea Flower: This beautiful, blue bloom is an amazing source of antioxidants including anthocyanins, quercetin, polyphenols and flavonoids. Butterfly Pea Flower has been shown in studies to prevent glycation (a process that takes place in the body when sugar molecules break down proteins, which can cause collagen loss). Because these flowers don't contain scent molecules, Naiad Nectar remains unscented and suitable for those with fragrance sensitivities. Each bottle contains its own unique flower, so the shade of Naiad Nectar will vary from bottle to bottle (from light to deep blue/purple).
Hydration Matrix: Our blend of three ultra-low molecular weight humectants can penetrate the skin deeply and hold hydration where you need it. Tremella Mushroom, Vegetable Glycerine, and Propanediol keep your skin hydrated and dewy looking, while offering an instant plumping effect to lessen the appearance of fine lines.
Milk Thistle: Containing the powerful antioxidant Silymarin, Milk Thistle is known for its ability to soothe and protect the skin from environmental stressors. Milk Thistle is suitable for all skin types and can help regulate sebum production in oily/acne-prone skin.
Green Tea Extract: The active constituents in Green Tea are polyphenols known as Catchethins, which are potent antioxidants that help diminish visible signs of aging. Green Tea Extract's skin soothing properties help to alleviate dryness, and improve the skin's elasticity and suppleness.
Ingredients: Propanediol (Corn Derved), Glycerine (Vegetable), Niacinamide, Panthenol, Clitoria Ternatea (Butterfly Pea) Flower, Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract, Psoralea Corylifolia Seed Extract (Bakuchiol), Silybum Marianum (Milk Thistle) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract.
How To Use
Apply 2-3 drops to clean, WET skin after cleansing and before moisturizing. Massage gently until Naiad Nectar is almost soaked in, but skin is still a bit damp. Follow with, Moisturizer, Facial Oil or your favourite Face Potion.
Because this serum is waterless, it must be used on WET skin (right after cleansing, before moisturizers or facial oils). The concentrated, water attracting ingredients carry moisture deep inside your skin and hold it there. It increases your skin's hydration and dewiness while providing your skin with active herbal extracts. Because there is no water in the serum, it uses the water from your tap to hydrate your skin.
Alternatively, you can add one pump to a WET cotton round and swipe over your skin for use as a toner.
*Note: The beautiful colour of Naiad Nectar comes from natural Butterfly Pea Flowers, and each bottle contains its own flower. Each bottle will have a unique shade, ranging from light to deep blue/purple.
