Aluminium and amber bottles are accepted in kerbside recycling, pumps unfortunately are not (as is with most closures)
Niacinamide: strengthens barrier function (among a wide variety of other benefits), resulting in better water retaining abilities of the skin.
Ceramide complex: key components of your skin’s natural lipid mix, this skin-identical lipid complex contains 3 different types of ceramides, cholesterol and the ceramide precursor phytosphingosine to help form a protective layer and reduce moisture loss from the skin's surface.
Hyaluronic acid: instantly hydrates, plumps and smooths the skin.

Dispense less than half a pump and apply to damp clean skin. Immediately follow with a moisturiser (+ oil if needed) to seal in moisture. Use morning & night, and under the eye area. Complete your daytime routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin.
TIP: If you haven't used niacinamide before, introduce gradually (once every other day) and build up slowly to once or twice daily use. As with all products, patch test first and discontinue use if irritation occurs.
You may notice the serum turns a little white as you apply it - this is perfectly normal (it immediately disappears) and is just the serum emulsifying with the natural oils on your skin surface.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Once opened use within 12 months.
