Nécessaire is an Instagram-famous beauty brand to be reckoned with. Its chic bodycare products have become a staple amongst influencers and shoppers alike, even though the brand has only been online since its launch in 2018. In a beauty community dominated by intense scents, pink packaging, and gendered advertising, Nécessaire's products filled a previously invisible gap: Each one is unisex, minimalist, and largely fragrance free (and the smells that are offered are both light and on trend, like eucalyptus or sandalwood). And — lucky for you — Nécessaire's newest launch, The Body Serum, is no different.
In fact, it's the next logical step for the game-changing and environmentally friendly beauty brand, which already offers a body lotion and exfoliator as well. Think of the new $45 product as a face serum for, well, everywhere else. Formulated with vitamin B5, vitamin B3, hyaluronic acid, and ceramide NP, the lightweight gel acts as a moisturizing treatment you can use all over your body.
It fits into your body routine similar to a regular facial serum's spot in your skincare regimen, too. According to the product description, you should apply The Body Serum before you even pick up your favorite lotion. Or, you can mix the serum into your body moisturizer for an extra boost — just like you would a face-friendly hyaluronic acid.
That majorly moisturizing ingredient isn't the only perk found in the formula, either. The Body Serum's various vitamins and ceramide NP — one type of ceramide naturally found in your body — will work together to replenish and reinforce your skin's own barrier. This means any moisture already present (and any added by hyaluronic acid) will stay put longer. Interested in some deeper skin science? Nécessaire also notes that The Body Serum has a pH level between 4.5 and 5.5 — similar to the natural level of your skin (5.5). Simply put, the serum won't disrupt your body's natural ecosystem, or cause it to fall out of balance in one way or the other.
