If you are dealing with angry, red skin, you want Skin Zen in your life. If your skin is sensitive and freaks out at everything, you want Skin Zen in your life. Skin Zen Serum is the lightest weight product in my Skin Zen line, and thus, is great even for oily skin types. Active ingredients like bisabolol, cucumber extract, panthenol, and aloe help to reduce redness and irritation and function to keep sensitive skin calm and non-reactive. Because of its anti-inflammatory activity, Skin Zen Serum is even effective against bug bites, dermatitis, heat rash, and other inflammation-based skin issues. This is a must-have for everyone’s regimen!

NOTE: If your skin is actively irritated, I suggest getting the fragrance free version, as fragrance can be irritating.

Description

INGREDIENTS: Distilled water, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, panthenol, cucumber extract, aloe vera, hydroxyethyl acrylate (and) sodium acryloyldimethyl (and) taurate copolymer, rosehip seed oil, lactobacillus ferment, tocopherol, fragrance, bisabolol, phenoxyethanol,

INGREDIENTS EXPLAINED:

Jojoba oil: Jojoba oil is a lightweight, fast-absorbing oil with a structure similar to that of sebum, which is produced by the skin. It is a great emollient to use in formulas for oily/combo skin because it won’t cause breakouts. In this formula, it is present as a fast-absorbing emollient.

Grapeseed oil: Grapeseed oil is another fast-absorbing, non-greasy oil. It is also a good oil for combo/oily skin, as it won’t cause breakouts either. It has a high concentration of antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids. It is present in this formula as a fast-absorbing emollient.

Panthenol: This ingredient is able to penetrate skin fairly well and has softening and moisturizing properties. It also helps to soothe and protect irritated skin.

Cucumber Extract: Anti-inflammatory extract that hydrates, softens, and cools skin.

Aloe vera: Aloe vera has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, hydrating, and antioxidant activity with regards to skin. In this formula, it is present as both a moisturizing agent and an anti-inflammatory active.

Hydroxyethyl acrylate / sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer: This ingredient is the gelling agent for the serum. It is a Hydro-Swelling Droplet (HSD) form of emulsifier, and is used for cold emulsions, in which no ingredients are heated during the formulation of the product.

Rosehip oil: Rosehip seed oil has loads of antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids, so it is very anti-inflammatory. In this formula, it is present as an emollient and anti-inflammatory active.

Lactobacillus ferment: This ingredient is a preservative, and is responsible for preventing the growth of bacteria, mold, fungus, yeast, etc.

Tocopherol: Tocopherol is Vitamin E, and acts as a preservative in this formula, preventing the oxidation of the oils in the product and increasing the shelf life.

Fragrance: This is the scent that is added to the product. Fragrance oil manufacturers are not required by law to disclose what compounds are in their fragrance oils. However, some will tell you what is NOT in their fragrance oils, and I base my fragrance oil purchases on this information. I make sure my fragrance oils are free of phthalates and known carcinogens. Because fragrance may be a source of irritation in a product formula, I offer all my products fragrance free as well as scented.

Bisabolol: Bisabolol is an alcohol purified from the Candeia tree that is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, is skin protective, and helps restore elasticity to skin. It is also a penetration enhancer, which is a compound that opens a pathway into skin cells, allowing other ingredients greater access than they could get in its absence.

Phenoxyethanol: This ingredient is a preservative, and is responsible for preventing the growth of bacteria, mold, fungus, yeast, etc.

    This serum is nice and lightweight. I use it in the morning and it absorbs right away but leaves me with plenty of moisture for the entire day. I live in a humid area and this serum doesn’t over do it or melt off my face.

  2. Kristin Encarnacion (verified owner)

    This is by far my favorite skin serum. It absorbs wonderfully and helps keep my skin nice and refreshed. I usually have reactions to many skincare products but this is so soothing to my skin. I constantly buy it and it’s absolutely worth the price!
