Multivitamin skin rescue - plumping serum
For deflated skin in need of rescue - smoothes and plumps, whilst fading prominent lines.Skin gets a thorough dose of vitamins and minerals leaving it feeling hydrated and supple.
Some ingredients work twice as well when working together. Alone, vitamins A and C have difficulty penetrating skin deeply enough to offer any measurable benefit. But paired carefully, they can work wonders…Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) has apple pectin to stabilise it and increase its ability to repair. The particular vitamin C we use (MAP) is both light and water-stable. This enables it to work well with the polysaccharides in kelp and yarrow and extend the anti-oxidant effect. Niacinamide (vitamin B3) and panthenol (Vitamin B5) together improve skin strength, with lactic acid, ceramide production can be improved in depleted skin. This particularly suits mature and sun-damaged skin, where skin density has reduced..
Rehydration from top to toe! The naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in kelp with aloe vera keep the skin surface soft and plumped. This can only be sustained if the lower layers are also well-hydrated, so a smaller molecular weight, hyaluronic salt, is used for it’s ability to penetrate skin. The right water/lipid balance is also vital and sometimes over-looked, to avoid skin looking deflated. The omega-rich fruit oils and vitamin E provide the lipids needed without causing oiliness. They can all work their magic protected by a silky-fine layer of Gosulin, a natural, non-irritating silicone, which adds a soft, light sheen.
Directions for Use: Apply to skin morning and evening. If used with other serums, this should be the last one applied, (unless you use the lightening serum to fade melasma). This may be moisturising enough during the day not to need any more. At night, let this absorb for five minutes before adding an elixir or moisturiser.
