Make sure to have clean skin for best results, having cleansed your face beforehand
Cleanse your skin
Apply serum gently on damp skin with your fingers
Wait until you feel that the serums have been absorbed and penetrated the skin
(Apply treatment creams (acne, rosacea, peels, etc.))
Have dry skin
Apply moisturizer/SPF (to lock in the active ingredients)
* PRO TIP: Always apply the thinner products first (cleanser, toners, serums, creams, etc.), and finish off with ‘sealing’ the nourishing products you’ve just applied, and protect your face with the thicker (moisturizer/SPF) product.
Sodium hyaluronate (SH) is the salt form of the skin-replenishing hyaluronic acid (HA), and shares the same benefits, including its ability to retain moisture. In its form, 1 gram (0.03 fl.oz.) HA can retain up to 6 liters (203 fl.oz.), though when used on the skin, it can’t hold that much. But sodium hyaluronate can as a smart ingredient help the skin maintain its water balance – which gives you a healthy, youthful and plumped look. Sodium hyaluronate is a humectant (moisture-binding), but is also considered a postbiotic, meaning it helps nourishing and maintaining the skin’s microbiome. The main difference between HA and SH, is that the skin is better at absorbing SH.
Overall; sodium hyaluronate is a humectant and antioxidant that is excellent in replenishing the skin and moisture-binding. It keeps your skin looking plumped, healthy and hydrated. It benefits your skin by its abilities in soothing, anti-aging and hydration.
Ascorbyl Glucoside is a form of vitamin C; an antioxidant and skin brightener (in terms of helping to fade brown spots (hyper-pigmentation) caused by sun damage or post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation). Our bodies don’t naturally produce vitamin C, and it’s a tricky ingredient that is both unstable, hard to formulate, and also has difficulties in penetrating the skin. This is why we use Ascorbyl Glucoside, which have shown to be one of the best derivatives of vitamin C. On the contrary to vitamin C, it’s stable, easy to formulate and has in in-vitro studies shown no troubles with penetrating the skin, which is important in terms of letting the active anti-aging ingredients do their job. In-vitro studies also show that Ascorbyl Glucoside converts into vitamin C, when absorbed by the skin – at the same time it also shows the three anti-aging benefits that pure vitamin C also does (antioxidant protection + collagen boosting + fading hyper-pigmentation). Ascorbyl Glucoside thus boosts the skin’s own collagen production, and used under sunscreen, it boosts both the UV- and photoprotection.
Glyceryl Glucoside (Glycoin), a 100% natural, multifunctional, anti-aging, and cell-boosting active ingredient, that reactivates the power of youth in tired, stressed, and mature skin. Glycoin is an extremolyte, which is a stress protection molecule, that is produced naturally by the African resurrection plant, Myrothamnus Flabellifolia. Myrothamnus Flabellifolia grows in deserts and survives without rain. It looks withered and dead, but, as soon as it rains the plant blooms – thanks to Glycoin. These remarkable properties can be transferred to (your) skin.
Propanediol can naturally be found and derived in corn, and also manufactured synthetically. It’s a glycol that improves and increases the absorption of other ingredients, creating an improvement to their effectiveness, while also being a great humectant, meaning providing the skin with moisture. It’s a very gentle ingredient, which is good for sensitive skin, as it has a lack of skin irritation or sensitization.
