FAQ's Polyglutamic Acid

IS THIS SUITABLE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN?

Yes, this serum is suitable for sensitive skin. 


WHEN LAYERING THIS SERUM WITH OTHER SERUMS, WHICH SHOULD GO FIRST?

Other serums should be layered first, and the Polyglutamic should be the last step before your moisturizer. Tip: this also can be added to foundation for an extra dewy glow.


WILL THIS HELLP WITH FINE LINES & WRINKLES?

Yes, Polyglutamic helps smooth out the skin while sitting on top of the skin


WILL THIS HELP BRIGHTEN SKIN?

Yes, this will help brighten the skin.


WILL THIS HELP PLUMP THE SKIN?

Yes, this helps plump up any fine lines and smooths out any texture.


IS THIS MORE HYDRATING THAT HYALURONIC ACID? SHOULD THESE BE USED TOGETHER?

Hyaluronic Acid sits below the surface and Polyglutamic Acid sits on top of the skin. Preventing any moisture loss. These can be used together as Hyaluronic Acid would go straight after cleansing and sinks below the surface and Poly should be applied before moisturizer, laying on top of the skin, preventing moisture loss


HYDRATING VS MOISTURIZING - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?


Hydrators work to increase the water content of the skin. These target dehydrated skin. E.G. Polyglutamic Acid. Moisturizers help seal moisture into the skin. These target dry skin. E.G. Peptide Moisturizer.


WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEHYDRATED SKIN AND DRY SKIN?


Dehydrated skin is caused by lack of water and can leave skin dull. Dry skin is caused by a lack of oil and leaves skin feeling tight and flaky. 


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS? 

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.


IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?

Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH LEVEL: 6.0-7.0

Good product, faulty bottle design

When I first received this, I tried to take the cap off and the entire lid popped off. Half of the container spilt when this happened so that was pretty frustrating. As for the product, it seems to be nice. My skin feel moisturized after applying it.
