What do we add to HelloECO recipes?
Water and hydrolates
Water is the basis of our cosmetics, without it it is difficult to talk about good absorption and hydration. It is not a cheap filler, but an element without which most of the ingredients would not penetrate further. Cosmetics based only on fats and oils, precisely because they do not contain water, should be applied to a wet body ...

Our favorite is the geranium hydrolate because it intensifies the action of other hydrolates and moisturizes well. You will find it in our face serum.serum do twarzy
