Soothing and Moisturizing Facial Mist
This facial mist contains two plant hydrosols; lavender and chamomile, to soothe sensitive, dry skin. Aloe vera juice is a source of micronutrients and has great moisturizing properties. Allantoin stimulates skin cell regeneration to help heal and protect sensitive skin while it soothes and softens. The formula also includes a water soluble preservative to protect the mist from microbial spoilage.
Directions For Use
Mist onto the face as required throughout the day to hydrate and soothe. Could be applied directly before an anhydrous facial serum to aid absorption of the serum.
Potential Substitute Ingredients
You can use different hydrosols if you wish. If you don’t have allantoin, this could be omitted (although you’ll lose some of the soothing and regenerating properties of the product).
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
