Like a drink of water for your skin, this featherweight hydrator is perfect as a stand-alone moisturizer for those with oily-prone skin or as the ideal first step to seal in moisture for those who are extra thirsty.
This pure, nourishing serum formulated with fractionated hyaluronic acid penetrates deep within the dermis to draw moisture in and hold it there. A universal booster in any regimen, it provides all day moisture retention and skin barrier repair; with each drop skin appears brighter, firmer and rejuvenated. Moisturizers with hyaluronic acid are common in the marketplace, and for good reason, this highly desirable ingredient is proven to help the skin retain water, but does not clog pores or feel greasy. BMD’s Hydro Peptide Gel recipe is unique in that it includes a healthy dose of Essential Mineral Complex which includes Zinc PCA and Copper PCA. These two elements serve to condition skin, help reduce excess oil buildup, AND give the product its cool blue color. Because it is a stand alone product, and not a heavyweight moisturizer, it can be used in combination with other clinical skin care with ease. It layers underneath sunscreens, night creams, and whichever anti-aging product best suits your skin. We recommend this soothing concoction as a base hydrator for all skin types.

- Improves skin tone
- Non-irritating and non-comedogenic
- Skin feels softer and looks more firm
- Appropriate for all skin types
- Simple to integrate into your regimen
What is hyaluronic acid (HA) you ask? It is technically your body’s natural lubricant, cushion and hydrator. It is found primarily in your joints, eyes, and skin where its hydrophilic (water-loving) propensity allows it to draw in and retain water. As we age, as with most body structures, the quantity and quality of our body’s stores of HA decreases. In your skin, this results in a dwindling ability to absorb and retain water which can be seen as a decrease in turgor (a measure of a cell’s distension due to fluid content), resilience (ability to bounce back) and pliability (ability to stretch without breaking). In layman's terms this equals a decline in plumpness, strength and flexibility. Replacing the HA that your body can no longer produce at the rate of your youth can help counteract these visible signs of aging. The blue color of this product is due to its content of PCA Zinc and PCA Copper. These are amino acids that help regulate the production of sebum - your body’s natural oil. Unlike other oil-regulating agents PCA Zinc and PCA Copper are also humectants - so while they can reduce the amount of oil you produce, which can help control acne breakouts and the subsequent inflammation, it is also hydrating.
