Ingredients

  • Argireline

    Scientifically known as Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, a chain of 6 amino acids which works by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters that are responsible for the contraction of facial muscles. As a result, Argireline relaxes facial tension leading to the minimisation of facial lines and wrinkles, giving the whole face a relaxed, more youthful look. Tests have shown that the Argireline reduces the appearance of wrinkles by up to 50% in 30 days, with an average improvement of 30%.

  • Renovage

    Improves the surface of the skin helping the skin feel smoother and look younger by delaying skin ageing:

    – Increases hydration, firmness and skins barrier function.

    – Reduces roughness, redness, pore size, fine lines/wrinkles, sun spots and pigmentation.

  • Exo-T

    Maintains the balance between cell renewal and dead skin removal. Protects the collagen network, which leads to increased smoothness and a more even complexion.

  • Aquaxyl

    Improves skin’s water reserves and limit water loss, helps skin to become more resistant and equipped for external aggressors. Visually improves the surface layers of skin aiding cell turnover for a smoother appearance.

  • Aquafill

    Fills wrinkles and refines pores. Scientifically decreases wrinkle depth after 30mins and maintains reduction over 24hrs.

  • Melaleuca alternifolia oil (Tea Tree)

    Obtained from the leaves and branchlets of the Australian tree Melaleuca alternifolia, Tea Tree has antibacterial properties and has been shown to assist in the treatment of skin infections, including pimples.

  • Salicylic Acid

    Salicylic Acid has an antimicrobial action and reduces follicle blockage which helps to clear out infected pores. It also has keratolytic activity which helps to dissolve the top layer of skin cells, allowing oil, dead skin cells and bacteria to escape from under the skin.

  • ACNACIDOL™

    A royal jelly-mimetic oil regulator with antibacterial properties clinically proven to regulate sebum production.

  • EVERMAT™

    Helps control oil production and excess shine, giving skin a healthy, matte appearance. It’s clinically proven to reduce shine by 21% and pore size by 16%.

  • Glycolic acid

    An Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), commonly known as a ‘fruit acid’ occurs naturally in sugar cane juice. It is considered to be the most effective AHA because it has a small molecular structure allowing it to penetrate the surface of the skin more readily.

  • Lactic acid

    A type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Lactic Acid is derived from sour milk and grains. Lactic Acid works by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. Through this exfoliation activity, it may smooth the skin’s texture problems including acne, fine wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin expressions. Lactic Acid also has the fantastic benefit of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating collagen and the skin growth cycle. Avocado Fruit Extract – helps to nourish and moisturise the skin, helping to create radiant looking skin.

  • β White™

    β White™ is the game changer in skin brightening and pigmentation correction. In a clinical study it was found to be 25% and 24% more effective than Vitamin C and Arbutin respectively.

  • Argatensyl™

    Provides an immediate tightening of the skin, leading to an overall improvement in skin tone. It also provides a longer term decrease to the appearance of wrinkle depth.

  • Trylagen™

    A revolutionary tri-functional ingredient made up of a combination of active peptides and proteins which target the appearance of collagen in both young and mature skin.

    Collagen boosting: In vitro studies of TrylagenTM showed astonishing results on the different types of collagen found in the skin. In one in vitro study collagen III was seen to almost triple (that’s 300%!) in just 7 days.

    Collagen organisation: TrylagenTM was seen in in-vitro studies to promote uniformity in the dimensions of collagen bundles by regulating their diameter and spacing. This provides for better cohesion and stabilization of collagen fibres.

    Collagen Protection: In vitro investigation revealed that TrylagenTM was able to influence the activity of the enzymes responsible for collagen breakdown.

  • Bee Venom

    ‘Fools’ the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung with the compound melittin, stimulating the production of the collagen and elastin. These chemicals help the skin to remain taut and bounce back into shape, reducing long term ageing of the skin.

  • Manuka Honey

According to sensory testing, 96% of the panelists noticed a tightening effect.

  • Resurrection Plant

    Found in the deserts of South Africa, this plant uses a miraculous survival system which allows it to avoid death in environments where prolonged periods of drought are followed by sudden and intense rain. During the drought periods, this plant goes into a state of anabiosis (reduced metabolism or hibernation), only to be “resurrected” when provided with moisture. That is, during the drought the plant appears dry and dead and then is quickly re-hydrated and normal cellular functions are restored with the rain. This plant is extremely rich in antioxidants and is especially helpful in rectifying oxidative changes caused by UV.
