Intensive Serum from Refresh Botanicals is one of the best organic and natural face serum that comes with a powerful mix of eleven active botanical ingredients! It helps diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from your face skin.
If you want to take your skin care routine to the next level then we highly recommend adding a serum into your daily routine. The particles in a serum are smaller and more easily able to penetrate the pores to deliver their infusion of powerful nutrients and antioxidants. If your skin is need of some extra oomph then we recommend wearing our serum alone or layering it under our daily moisturizer.
Our Intensive Serum is extremely concentrated and jam-packed in antioxidants to completely transform the way your skin looks and feels. Fig fruit extract and grape seed extract work together to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving elasticity, boosting collagen and strengthening the skin’s barrier to prevent moisture loss through the pores.
This serum also contains Calcium Ketogluconate, which helps to promote the formation of hyaluronic acid and elastin for smoother, firmer, more dewy looking skin. In fact, thanks to the addition of our exclusive aquacell blend of apple, lentil and watermelon extract, you will notice smoother skin within just two hours and an increase in intracellular water by 85% in just two weeks!
Cucumber is full of water, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and caffeic acid (amongst other antioxidants), vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes. To name a few, you’ve got iron, potassium, magnesium, folate, molybdenum, and silica – all in one simple fruit (yes, it’s a fruit). It is one of the best friend for the skin.

Just want to reiterate again, as with all Refresh Botanicals products, this product is is devoid of any petrochemicals, parabens or gluten that can damage your sensitive skin. Also, it is an animal cruelty free which means it has not at all been tested on animals.
Organic sweet almond oil and coconut oil infuse your skin with healthy fats to reduce inflammation, while providing a deep dose of moisture for a smooth and glowing complexion. Jojoba oil closely resembles your skin’s own natural sebum. This is excellent news because it means that jojoba will be readily absorbed, leaving behind no greasy residue at all while softening your skin, fighting bacteria, and reducing damaging free radicals. The addition of jojoba oil to this moisturizer makes it a must for all skin types because while coconut provides that deep down hydration, jojoba helps to control and even out oil production in the skin.
Best Organic and Natural Face Serum - What you should you look for in your face serum?
1. Choose a serum which has hyaluronic acid (remember, natural source is always better!): Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a carbohydrate, more specifically a mucopolysaccharide, occurring naturally in all living organisms. It is a key molecule in skin aging and one of the most hydrophilic (water-loving) molecules in nature that absorbs water almost 1000 times of it's weight and can be described as nature’s moisturizer!
2. Combine hyaluronic acid with Vitamin C: It has been found from research studies that an anti-aging skincare routine containing hyaluronic acid and vitamins (including vitamin C) significantly improves the biomechanical parameters of the skin, which includes wrinkles and skin texture, as well as elasticity, without notable adverse effects.
3. Moisturizers can not and should not replace face serums: There is a fundamental difference between serums and moisturizers and some of us wonder if they can substitute one with the other. The answer is big NO! Lotions and creams have a thick, rich consistency that creates a barrier on top of the skin in order to lock in moisture. They are full of fillers, thickeners and lubricating agents, so they’re heavier and have less room for active ingredients. A serum is made of smaller molecules that can penetrate the skin on a deeper cellular level. It’s literally working on a different level than your moisturizer. The best face serums work faster and more effectively than arguably any other product in your bathroom vanity.
4. How and when should I apply: How—and when– you apply a serum also makes a difference, as there is an optimal way to apply a serum. Most should be applied in the morning – preferably after a shower when the skin is still damp. A little bit goes a long way so a very small quantity (very small pea size) is usually enough. Pat, don’t rub, the serum into your skin. For more details, see our video on how to apply.
Extra tip for best results: To get the best results, wash your face with Refresh Botanicals Facial Cleanser before applying this serum.
