H₂O Hydrating Complex

NZD $42.00


Reclaim your skin’s youthfulness with this cool drink of water that infuses thirsty skin with a veil of continuous moisture.

Hydrated skin is healthy skin, and H2O is the ultimate in achieving perfect skin-water balance. Skin-plumping Hyaluronic Acid, water-charged New Zealand Flax, and healing Panthenol combine to pull moisture into the deepest layers of your skin.

Surface dryness and dehydration are regulated, improving fine lines, firmness, and facial plumpness.

Daily Ritual: Apply 3-5 drops in the evening over the face, neck, and décolleté before moisturising.

Skin Concerns: Dryness, dehydration, premature ageing.

NZ Flax & Hyaluronic acid  30ml (1.0 fl oz)

Because lipid-dry skin is different from dehydrated skin – a moisturiser or oil is not always enough to have a profound effect.
High molecular Hyaluronic Acid formula infuses your skin with hydration and moisture.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is an essential structural molecule found in your skin, is vital to the cell’s ability to hold moisture.

Targets premature ageing: Youthful skin can hold onto water and retain a balanced amount of moisture. Hyaluronic Acid’s moisture-binding characteristic is essential for treating skin ageing, which causes HA’s levels to decline; skin that was once plump and supple becomes dry, and there is a visible loss of firmness (hello, lines and wrinkles). Because it is a significant component of your skin, it is an essential element in tissue repair. This loss of Hyaluronic Acid results in slower tissue repair, accelerating the ageing process, causing your skin to lose its moisture and contributing to premature ageing. Simply put, Hyaluronic Acid has powerful rejuvenating and anti-ageing properties.

Treats damaged skin: The Hyaluronic Acid quality is vital to our client’s best outcome in the clinic, especially if they have recently experienced invasive treatments like micro-needling, laser, or deep peels. H2O contains a pure form of high molecular Hyaluronic Acid that can’t penetrate the skin barrier. It creates a film with your skin’s keratin upon evaporation, which keeps skin moisturised and improves elasticity.

Has significant healing and anti-inflammatory properties: Many Hyaluronic markets contain low molecular weight hyaluronic. Small molecular Hyaluronic Acid can become absorbed into the tissues and cause inflammation, especially on an already compromised skin. H2O complex has been specifically formulated without any alcohol or skin irritants such as Aloe Vera. It can encourage microbes within a formula causing underlying infections; it has also been carefully preserved to minimise irritation.

It is also important to mention that drinking water is inefficient in maintaining and restoring skin hydration levels. Your other organs take up the water, so hydrating topically is vital. Like a water magnet, H2O attracts moisture to your skin cells for hydration; dullness and fine lines are diminished, and oil flow is balanced, leaving your skin healthy, plump and clear.

Note: When using H2O, layering is essential; humectant ingredients can get taken up by the air, so ensure your skin is sealed with an occlusive moisturiser.


Skin Health Benefits

  • provides cooling and soothing relief from inflammation and sun exposure
  • promotes collagen synthesis, retaining your skin’s elasticity and firmness
  • improves moisture balance and maintains lipid balance by improving your skin’s barrier function
  • delivers long lasting-hydration; combatting dullness and dehydration, and reducing evaporation
  • plumps your skin, increasing missing levels of Hyaluronic Acid that deplete as a result of ageing or trauma


Hyaluronic Acid: A high molecular, natural moisturising factor found in every cell in your body, it is capable of retaining more than 1000 times its weight in water by drawing moisture from the air into your skin, providing intense hydration. Youthful skin can hold onto water and retain a balanced amount of moisture. Ageing causes levels of Hyaluronic to decline, therefore replenishing topically plumps and firms your skin.
Flax Extract: The clear gel hydrates, soothes, and cools, reducing puffiness and improving surface redness. The natural antimicrobial properties of Flax control oil production, making it an effective defence against breakouts.
Panthenol: Referred to as Provitamin B5, it stabilises the barrier improving skin texture to reduce fine lines’ appearance. A deficiency in Vitamin B5 in the skin can result in serious dermatological disorders, which shows the importance of this ingredient in maintaining healthy skin and warding off premature ageing.

    My name is Erica, live in Toronto. My face used to be very dry, extremely sensitive, and red. I started to get severe sun burn in my face in 2017 even when it was cloudy or raining. Dermatologists told me that I had rosacea and there were no cures for it. I was desperately searching for products that would help to repair my damaged skin barrier until I found Bio Lipid and Fortify Moisturizer on thenakedchemist site in 2018. I contacted Samantha and told her my problems, and got her response immediately. She offered me her personalized advice and also suggested me to use H2O together with Bio Lipid and Fortify Moisturizer, which they worked so well on my face. The condition of my skin started to improve right away. Since then, I have also used DNA, GLO, Miracle Cleanse. I absolutely love every one of them. My face has never been so healthy, bright. I have friends told me my face looks great which it never happened before.
    Samantha, thank you so much! Your products are amazing!

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Erica. I am so pleased that you have found products that truly help with your skin, I remember you reaching out to me a year or so ago to help with your skin and it is great that we have been able to find a solution and rebuild your barrier and ultimately reducing inflammation which is at the heart of premature ageing. This to me then is what it is all about positive results for clients such as you and I for one could not be more pleased, thank you so much for the review. Yours in skin health. Samantha

  7. Olivia

    This product is amazing! I usually have super dry skin and struggle finding products that work well for it. This Hydrating skin shot has made my skin feel extremely dewy, bouncy, replenished and hydrated. Big thank you to the Naked Chemist 🙂

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi, Olivia, I am so pleased you like it for its skin-plumping, hydrating properties and so glad it is helping return your skin back to health. Kind regards Samantha

    I love H2O Hydrating Complex! It soaks right into my skin, unlike other products I’ve used. I read Courtney’s review and I couldn’t agree more…I feel like I hit the skincare lottery. I live in the USA and I’m now using products from New Zealand (Naked Chemist). It’s well worth the wait. My skin looks so healthy. I use H2O hydrating complex first, then I layer other skin-shots and finally Fortifying Barrier Cream. Great recipe for me!

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Karen

      Thank you so much for this review, H20 is. hero product amongst my clients and for good reason. With any types of humectants such as hyaluronic acid they will get taken up by the air, so you are very right in that layering is the important next step in locking this all important molecule close to the skin. Samantha

    I love this product. It is a staple in my skincare routine. I haven’t found any other product that has such a pure ingredient list with 2% HA in its formula. I felt like I hit the skincare lottery when I stumbled across this site. Oh, and the fact that Samantha offers customizable blends and personalized advice is just icing on the cake. Thank you for your passion and expertise!

    • Samantha Miller

      Courtney wonderful feedback, thank you so much. Samantha

  11. Cheryl

    The first step in my daily skin care routine involves splashing on a few drops of H2O. What a refreshing feeling as the H2O works its magic and immediately begins to hydrate my skin! Once my skin is hydrated, I incorporate the Bio Lipid and ACE skin shots, and top everything with a bit of FORTIFY moisturizer. I love how the layers of these products hydrate, moisturize, and protect my face!

    I have been extremely impressed with the quality of every Naked Chemist product I have tried. I am equally impressed with the personalized care provided by Samantha. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to repairing and maintaining healthy skin, and I especially appreciate her passion for helping her clients!

    Thank you Samantha for the great products and exceptional customer service!

    • Samantha Miller
