The benefits before we get onto the formulation is that the serum is alcohol free, fragrance free, and also essential oil free, making it be a great product to select if you have reactive and sensitive skin, or if you cannot tolerate these ingredients in general. The moisturising serum contains the following, though it is noted the ingredients list could change because Ecooking pride themselves on their continuous effort to improve their products according to the latest knowledge about the effect of the ingredients on the environment and health:

The vegan friendly and dermatologically tested serum is superb when applied to the skin after cleansing morning and night. It glides over the skin easily and absorbs really quickly to leave the skin feeling immediately hydrated and comfortable. You will find it does NOT leave the skin feeling sticky or tacky and does NOT ball or flake off because there are no silicone's present in the formulation that can contribute to this happening. The no added fragrance or alcohol means you can take this serum around the delicate eye and mouth area for immediate soothing and hydrating benefits whilst the complexion improves each time the serum is used. Applying your chosen skincare products over the top, this weightless serum may "Feel" like its not doing anything but your soon "See" improvements when adding the Ecooking moisturising serum into your skincare routine, x Neil.
