Skin-Soothing, Anti-Acne, Exfoliant

Also called betahydroxy acid (BHA), salicylic acid is an ingredient that has numerous functions on the skin and as a result can address both acne and ageing skin concerns. One of its main functions is to exfoliate dead skin which has multiple benefits including the stimulation of underlying cells to produce more collagen and elastin. Furthermore, salicylic acid has the ability to penetrate deep in pores cleaning all sebum and dirt that has accumulated through the day which will help to prepare the skin for your night time regime and helps to minimise both blackheads and whiteheads. Salicylic acid also has soothing properties, improves skin texture and can even increase hydration levels of the skin.

Benefits:

  • Soothing
  • Anti-acne
  • Anti-ageing
  • At home chemical peel
  • Exfoliant
  • Deep pore penetration

Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer is a modified form of skin-replenishing hyaluronic acid which, joined to a polymer structure, is retained within the skin’s uppermost layers for extended periods, resulting in enhanced hydration. Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer is not animal-derived.

Benefits: 

  • Hydrating
  • Repairs the skin barrier

Hydroxypinacolone retinoate, a trans retinoic acid ester, which is an ester derivative of tretinoin the prescription topical for acne, is an exciting, next generation form of vitamin A that delivers all the anti-ageing benefits of retinol and retinoid derivatives with a far lower risk of irritation.

Hydroxypinacolone retinoate works in a more advanced way than traditional retinol as it binds directly with the skin’s retinoic acid receptors, whereas other retinols have to be converted by the skin receptors in order to be effective. Unlike other forms of vitamin A, hydroxypinacolone retinoate is gentle and less irritating while maintaining effectiveness for visibly more youthful skin.

Benefits:

  • Anti-ageing
  • Binds directly with the skin's retinoic acid receptors
  • Safer, gentle form of vitamin A
  • Lightens skin discolourations.
  • Breaks down hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces number of pores and pore size
  • Improves  skin texture
  • Visible and tactile softening of the skin
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Antioxidant
  • Reduces sebum production
  • Improves acne breakouts and blemishes
  • Increases hydration and plumps the skin

Benefits:

  • Superior absorption, rapidly penetrates the skin
  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Helps prevent ageing
  • Hydrating

Tocopheryl acetate is fat-soluble vitamin E and one of the best known and researched antioxidants for the skin and body. It is the most bio-available form of vitamin E and has natural skin-conditioning and antioxidant properties, helping protect against free radical damage, strengthening the skin barrier and preventing moisture loss. It has natural SPF properties, helping improve the effectiveness of sunscreens and protecting against UV damage. This ester of acetic acid and tocopherol is an improved alternative to pure tocopherol (undiluted vitamin E) because it is more stable and less acidic.

Benefits:

  • Antioxidant
  • Skin conditioning and repairing
  • Protecting

Ceramides are lipid (fat) molecules that naturally occur in skin cells, a key component of the skin barrier i.e. the protective outer layer of the skin. Ceramides maintain and regulate the health of this vital protective outer mantle and help to keep the skin hydrated, inhibiting moisture loss through the skin barrier.

Benefits:

  • Hydrating
  • Strengthens skin barrier
  • Replenishing
  • Restoring

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance naturally produced by the body, capable of holding a thousand times its own weight in water, making it an incredibly effective moisturiser for all skin types. Hyaluronic acid complex is the salt form and very compatible when applied externally to the skin. It helps boost the skin’s moisture content, soothes inflammation and prevents moisture loss. It also provides antioxidant defence against environmental assault, helping to repair and maintain the strength of the skin barrier. The hyaluronic acid complex found in all sk.in serums contains a combination of high, medium and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules, with the low molecular weight being 50 kilodaltons.

Benefits:

  • Hydrating
  • Moisturising
  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles
  • Can act as an antioxidant
  • Improves skin barrier function
  • Plumps and smooths the skin
