Facial Serums, treatment oils are applied before we apply anything on the face. Facial Serums can be easily made at home. Since these are light and non-comedogenic facial serums can be made to suit all skin types.

Facial Serums are a combination of cold pressed vegetable oils, gels, gums, infused extract, and essential oils.

The following blends can be tried to make Facial Serum
