What’s a water-based serum good for? To enhance your creativity and improve your skin’s health.

With Skin Actives new Base Serum and Base Toner Spray, you can do many things!  Our water-based carriers will dissolve many different actives, like epidermal growth factor, ROS BioNet with antioxidant proteins, hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and many more.

This is your opportunity to do DIY (do it yourself) skincare by adding active ingredients that attract your attention and make your unique serum or spray.

Our ready-made bases already include preservatives that protect you from bacteria and mold that could spoil your “concoctions” and even infect your skin and eyes (this is why skincare products always contain preservatives, by law!).  They also have the pH (level of acidity) your skin needs. What else? They have moisturizing capacity built-in, with glycerin, and more. The spray contains Tremella polysaccharides (read here about Tremella), xylitol (anti-inflammatory), and hyaluronic acid (film-forming and wrinkle “iron”). The serum base contains our special sea kelp bioferment, witch hazel water, and delicious orange flower water (agua de azahar in Spanish). You get prebiotic activity, as the Tremella solution and the Kefir bioferment discourage “bad” microorganisms from getting comfortable in your skin.

DIY Toner base: Water, Glycerin, Propanediol, Sea Kelp (Lactobacillus/Kelp Ferment Filtrate) Bioferment, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Water, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Flower Water, Phenoxyethanol (and) Chlorphenesin (and) Caprylyl Glycol.
DIY Serum base: Water, Sorbitol, Propanediol (and) Ethylhexylglycerin (and) Benzoic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Hyaluronic Acid, Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract, Xylitol, Panthenol.

Possible additions

and any water-soluble actives you fancy!



Don’t forget that there is a limit to solubility. A chemical that is soluble in water will dissolve to some extent and “that’s it”, just like when you keep adding sugar to your tea, there will be a point when sugar starts accumulating at the bottom of the cup!

If you are planning to use actives that are oil-soluble, a cream base like Canvas will be more suitable. Canvas cream is non-greasy, so it shouldn’t be a problem for skin prone to acne.
