Day Serum - Vitamin A Naturally scented with oils and extracts.
Formulated for prematurely aged skin, uneven texture and sun-damage.New skin cell growth is facilitated by:
- Restoring ceramides to strengthen the skin's protective barrier.
- Stimulating collagen and elastin production and repair.
Decreasing transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
We combine ingredients that are beneficial for both short and long term effect, for a robust, lasting result.
Vitamin A, Niacinamide (B3) and peptides have an accumulative effect, gradually improving skin condition over four to sixteen weeks.
Apply after hydrosol cleansing. Put a few drops on fingertips and work into skin, being careful to avoid eyes. Allow skin to absorb the serum for two to five minutes, before moisturising.
Vitamin A: A powerful antioxidant used to refine skin texture, encourage new skin cell growth and improve sun damage.
Syn-coll: A tripeptide which mimics the skin’s repair mechanism to restore lost elastin and collagen.
What is in it .....and What do they do?
The Essential Repairers: The core ingredients of the Day Serum.
Natural hyaluronic acid - An excellent humectant, but the large molecules need help to penetrate deep enough to make a real difference. So we add smaller molecule hyaluronic acid and even smaller sodium hyaluronate. These then attach to one another and are absorbed deeper into the skin, so the precious moisture doesn't sit on top on the skin, but goes where it is needed, for lasting skin moisture.
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): Soothes, whilst increasing the ceramides in the skin. This vitamin helps to inhibit melanosome transfer from melanocytes to keratinocytes to help repair UV damage. Large pores can also be reduced..
Urea: Gently softens and exfoliates dead skin, helping the absorption of vitamin A and hyaluronic acid. Reduces itching from dry skin conditions and has been helpful in wound healing, acne, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
The Botanical Repairers: Botanical extracts that provide a boost to effects of the vitamins and minerals.
Cornflower: High in flavonoids and sesquiterpenes for supple skin, with anti-bacterial properties.
Evening Primrose: One of the best extracts for inflammation and calming redness.
Honeysuckle: An antioxidant 200 times greater than vitamin E (in-vitro studies) provided by the high epilgallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and apigenin content. These also help restore collagen.
St John’s Wort: Xanthones and catechin tannins help reduce UV damage, with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Rose hydrosol - Hydrates and balances sebum production, whilst fading hyper-pigmentation. Containing a myriad of constituents which helps both acne and dry skin.
Colloidal oats & aloe vera: These are both used to soothe inflammation and calm redness.
Backup Restoration: Oils and resins used for skin conditioning.
Raspberry seed oil: Providing Excellent levels of antioxidants, pro-vitamin A and vitamin E - containing over 50% omega-6.
Rose absolute oil: Added to enhance the effect of rose hydrosol.
Frankincense oleoresin: This contains Boswellic acid, which is used to reduce inflamed skin and photo-damage. It has also demonstrated effectiveness, in double blind trials, to improve lines and elasticity.
