H₂O Hydrating Complex

NZD $42.00


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

Hydrated skin is healthy skin and H2O is the ultimate in achieving perfect skin-water balance.

High molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, Urea, skin-plumping Flax, and Panthenol pull moisture into the deepest layers regulating surface dryness and dehydration, so the appearance of fine lines, firmness, and facial plumpness is visibly improved.

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

Skin Concerns: Dryness, dehydration, premature ageing.


Our philosophy to treat ‘like with like’ continues with H2O

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is vital to our cell’s ability to hold moisture, An important structural molecule found in the skin. Ageing causes levels of HA to decline; skin that was once plump and taut becomes slack and dry.

Because lipid-dry skin is different from dehydrated skin – a moisturiser or oil is not always enough to have a profound effect. H2O with hyaluronic acid, boosted with Urea, Panthenol, Flax, and Cucumber bridges that gap, infusing the skin with hydration and moisture.

In the clinic, the quality of the HA serum used is vital to the best outcome of the skin, especially after invasive treatments like micro-needling, laser, or deep peels. H2O contains a pure form of high molecular Hyaluronic Acid, formulated without any alcohol or skin irritants and preserved naturally, to help return impaired skin back to health.

Note: When using H2O layering is important, humectant ingredients do get taken up by the air, so they should be sealed with an occlusive moisturiser.

Skin Health Benefits

  • visibly restores a youthful glow by delivering long lasting-hydration; combatting dullness and dehydration
  • plumps the skin, increasing missing levels of Hyaluronic Acid that deplete as a result of ageing or trauma
  • gently slouches off a build-up off dry skin cells, improving skin texture, and luminosity for optimal skin health
  • leaves the skin refreshed, pH balanced and lightly moisturised; providing cooling and soothing relief from sun exposure


Hyaluronic Acid: A natural moisturising factor found in every cell in the body, it is capable of attracting and retaining more than 1,000 times its own weight in water; drawing moisture from the air into the skin to provide intense hydration – we only use high molecular weight in our formulas.
Flax Seed: The clear polysaccharide gel produced by the plant naturally soothes, hydrates, and cools; reducing puffiness and redness. Flax is also a natural antimicrobial with mild astringent properties that 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 the appearance of fine lines. 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.
Cucumber: It’s natural polysaccharide components create an invisible barrier that locks moisture against the skin. Cucumber is also astringent and anti-inflammatory; helping to improve the appearance of large pores.

    I have been using this with Barrier Fortify Repair. My once dry skin is now looking and feeling smooth and lovely! I don’t have the energy for a long skincare routine, this is quick and easy to apply as well as giving a good result.

    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!

    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 🙂

    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!

      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!

      Courtney wonderful feedback, thank you so much. Samantha

    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!
