Regimen Lab Wave Serum

$50 $55


Regimen Lab Wave Serum hydrates instantly and deeply, designed to keep hydration in by supporting the skin’s moisture barrier. Now in version 2.0, with double the concentration of its core humectant complex! The result is a serum that hydrates as effectively and deeply as scientifically possible.


Why We Love It

Using a mind-blowing 24 humectants, this serum works in the short and long term to flood your skin with plumping hydration. This is moisture that really stays in the skin!

Regimen Lab Wave Serum

You’ve seen the marketing: some humectants can hold “1000x their weight in water". But here’s the thing: this doesn't necessarily translate to more hydrated skin. With Wave 2.0, Regimen Lab spent over a year testing dozens of the best humectants, raising the bar on what made the cut, ruthlessly cutting out the hype. The result: skincare’s best tool for skin hydration.

A hydrator that dives way deeper.

The insight with Wave was to pack it with humectants and NMFs rather than water or glycols. Now, we’ve gone further: we doubled our core humectant combination. Our most exciting addition is we now use 10% Acetamidoethoxyethanol (AXE), the new gold standard for skin hydration.


Wave promotes long-term hydration by supporting the skin’s natural hydration mechanisms. This system (TECA) kickstarts skin’s aquaporin synthesis, allowing skin to stay hydrated long after application. We pair these with natural moisturizing factors to keep skin deeply hydrated for longer.

The barrier’s the thing

All humectants by definition hydrate the skin, but our research revealed that they can have unintended effects on the barrier. We removed ingredients that could irritate or weaken the skin barrier, keeping skin happy and hydrated.

When should I expect to see results?

You'll see plumper-looking skin 24 hours after using it. You'll often notice the results when you wake up the next day if you use it at night. 

How is it different from Wave 1.0?

Think of Wave 2.0 as a completely new hydration serum, but based on the same core principles. The changes can be summarized in three key points:

  • Improved Hydration: Wave 2.0 results from multiple rounds of testing to develop a humectant combination that actually works, as evidenced by Corneometry results. We took out the lowest performers, increased the highest performers, and we ended up with a hydration serum that is doubly as effective as Wave 1.0. 
  • Soothing: We removed all potentially irritating ingredients and packed Wave 2.0 with soothing ingredients. We also updated the preservative system to one used in sting-free baby products. 
  • Smoother, slicker: As a result of our improved humectant mix, Wave 2.0 is a thin hydration serum (not a thicker 'concentrate' like Wave 1.0). Our testers overwhelmingly prefer the new texture to Wave 1.0 and we are confident you will too! 


Use after cleansing in AM & PM. Use right before C.R.E.A.M. (or your moisturiser), twice a day for extra hydration.
