How to use

We recommend first misting clean skin with Healing Water Toning Mist. Then, use fingertips to smooth a small amount of serum onto the skin. Follow with Precious Oils Active Infusion.

Key active ingredients

Sodium ascorbyl phosphate (vitamin C) brightens dark spots and supports collagen production to promote firmer skin.

Hyaluronic acid binds moisture to the skin, boosting hydration while minimizing fine lines and other signs of aging.

Panthenol softens and soothes irritation and inflammation for smooth, calm skin.

Amino acids promote skin elasticity to reduce the visible signs of aging and support skin’s firmness.

Saccharide isomerate binds moisture to the skin’s surface for up to 72 hours for long lasting hydration.

All ingredients

Aqua, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Saccharide Isomerate, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Glycerin, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Glycine, Alanine, Serine, Valine, Proline, Threonine, Isoleucine, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Salicylate, Sodium Anisate, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate.

Active Hydration Serum has been our multi-year bestseller thanks to its ability to reveal healthy-looking, radiant skin while being supremely gentle.

This light, fast-absorbing liquid leads with a powerful dose of antioxidant vitamin C to brighten and prevent hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage or breakouts, as well as ward off DNA-damaging free radicals that cause visible signs of premature aging. It follows with hyaluronic acid and saccharide isomerate for serious hydration to help skin feel more plump, firm and supple.

Because we use a gentle, stabilized form of Vitamin C called Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (or SAP for short), you won’t experience any sensitivity or redness like other C serums may cause. It’s also packed with Vitamin B5 (Panthenol) and Amino Acids to truly nourish skin. Get ready to show off a more luminous complexion and notice your inner glow shining through.

Love this

This is now my go to for a vitamin C product that's low waste. It's easy to wear under other stuff in the morning or layer under moisturizers because it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave me shiny.

Wish it had more antioxidants

I really like this serum. It's great for my acne prone skin, but I do wish that the serum had more antioxidants. Currently, the serum only contains the antioxidant SAP which I love but because it only contains 1 antioxidant I have to use another product in the mornings. Please consider reformulating the serum to include not only the current 5% SAP but also other gentle antioxidants, such as Epigallocatechin Gallate, Resveratrol, Genistein, Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione, Silymarin, Acetyl Zingerone, Ubiqunone, or Ergothioneine. I wouldn't mind paying extra for a serum that has 5% SAP and some of these additional antioxidants as well as hydrating ingredients.

Love!!

I started off with the travel/trial set to try out a variety of products and after the first week I was obsessed! Activist Skincare is exactly what I was looking for when it came to high-quality products and sustainability. After a few simple questions I was able to set up a convenient subscription to fit my needs based off how often I would be using each product. They also go above and beyond with the packaging and even go as far to leave a handwritten note inside the box. I would 100% recommend to anyone looking to change up their skincare routine with sustainable products.

Love it!

This is a great serum! After a few weeks of using it, I can tell that my skin takes in moisturizers much better. Some of my dark spots are lightening too! I signed up for the membership and got the sweetest note and a sample of the precious oil :) Love this company and what they do.
