MEET THE TRIO
Our new three serums combine proven active ingredients at ideal concentrations to ensure maximum skin tolerability, product stability and efficacy.
10% Vitamin C Super Serum – Delivers a surge of highly stable Vitamin C for superior photoprotection and brightening.
1% Hyaluronic Complex Serum – High-dose Hyaluronic Acid for heroic, sustained hydration that lasts up to 72 hours.
10% Niacinamide Power Serum – Results-driven all-rounder to support barrier repair, minimise signs of ageing and soothe troubled skin.
10% VITAMIN C SUPER SERUM
Formulated To – Target skin exhibiting dullness, discolouration, and the signs of premature ageing.
Why You Need It – Brightens overall skin tone, lightens pigmentation and dark spots caused by acne scarring, UV damage, melasma, ageing and skin inflammation. Reduces oxidative stress to help prevent dull, tired-looking skin. Promotes collagen production and protects against collagen degradation to improve skin elasticity and firmness.
Key Ingredients –
Ascorbyl Glucoside, Ferulic Acid, Kakadu Plum Extract and Liquorice Extract.
1% HYALURONIC COMPLEX SERUM
Formulated To – Target dry and dehydrated skin, with visible lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.
Why You Need It – Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of healthy skin, but levels decline with age. This replenishing formula contains multiple weights of Hyaluronic Acid to penetrate deep into the epidermis for up to 72 hours of hydration. It helps restore the skin's natural barrier against trans-epidermal water loss and protects it against damage caused by environmental factors.
Key Ingredients –
Hyaluronic Acid Complex, Pentavitin and Vitamin B5 (Panthenol).
10% NIACINAMIDE POWER SERUM
Formulated To – Target sensitised, acne-prone and ageing skin types, or those with a compromised skin barrier.
Why You Need It – Strengthens the lipid barrier to prevent external ageing by improving skin resilience and reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation. It helps to soothe inflammation and redness from inflammatory skin conditions and prevents acne by creating a healthy skin microbiome while preventing bacterial irritants.
Key Ingredients –
Niacinamide, Probiotic Complex, Cucumber Seed Oil and Aloe Vera.
It is important to apply serums to cleansed skin in order for them to absorb properly. Start with the thinnest facial serum, or, if you are using more than one type of serum, begin by addressing your primary skin concern. Massage a few drops into the skin, wait a few minutes for it to absorb, and then apply your secondary serum. It’s best not to use more than two serums at once; too many products can irritate your skin and prevent effective absorption. Follow up with moisturiser and always complete your morning skincare routine with high-SPF sun protection prior to going outside.
Vitamin C Super Serum 10% works well with many other skincare products. Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C exist naturally in the skin, so they work together to create a firm texture and glowing complexion. These popular ingredients can be layered or applied at different times of the day. If you space them apart, it’s best to use Vitamin C in the morning and Hyaluronic Acid at night. If you layer them, apply your antioxidant serum (Vitamin C) first for maximum protection. Vitamin C also works well with Niacinamide. Both will brighten your complexion, while Niacinamide will also help to improve barrier function and hydration and impart a mild anti-inflammatory action to soothe skin. Below are some products we’d recommend using alongside 10% Vitamin C Super Serum.
In terms of what to avoid, if you incorporate other actives into your routine such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), or Retinol, the best time to use the 10% Vitamin C Super Serum is in the morning and then apply your other actives at night. This will help to avoid irritation and ensure that the Vitamin C remains potent.
1% Hyaluronic Complex Serum is highly compatible with other ingredients and skincare products. In particular, it's great to use alongside those that are highly active and can be associated with irritation e.g., Retinol, AHAs and BHAs. Glycolic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid work together in a synergistic manner, making it easier to reap the benefits of Glycolic Acid without suffering any of the usual dryness thanks to the moisture boost from Hyaluronic Acid. However, the application of these two ingredients is the most important factor in determining how effective this combination will be for your skin.
Glycolic Acid should be applied to dry skin, while Hyaluronic Acid is ideally applied to damp skin and followed with a moisturiser. One thing you could try is applying 1% Hyaluronic Complex Serum onto damp skin, waiting until it is fully dry, and then applying your Glycolic Acid. If you experience some irritation from this method, use a Glycolic based toner beforehand and then follow with your Hyaluronic Acid serum while the skin is still slightly damp. Alternatively, you can use Hyaluronic Acid in the morning only and use your Glycolic products in the evening.
Here are some products that work exceptionally well alongside 1% Hyaluronic Complex Serum.
- Even Blend Serum
- Expert Refine AHA Glycolic Toner
Our 10% Niacinamide Power Serum is an ideal complement to many other skincare ingredients or products. We recommend using it with Retinol due to the way that it reinforces the skin barrier while Retinol works to increase cell turnover and improve texture. Research shows that these two ingredients work in different yet complementary ways to address signs of ageing while also improving enlarged pores and uneven skin tone.
In terms of application, 10% Niacinamide Power Serum can be applied morning and evening. It is recommended that you use Retinol only in the evening, as it makes skin more sensitive to environmental damage by increasing its sensitivity to UV rays. When using both together, apply the one with the thinnest/lightest texture first. If the products have similar textures, use Retinol first so it has the best chance at penetrating the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin). There's no need to wait between applying both ingredients. They mix well and won't cancel each other out.
Try using 10% Niacinamide Power Serum with the following products for great at-home results.
Yes, all three of them can be used on sensitive skin; however, it is recommended to do a patch test first.
Pure L-Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C, is water-soluble. Although it is a pure form of Vitamin C, it can also be unstable in water-based or high pH solutions (which are better for skin compatibility). It can also oxidise quickly, making it less effective and potentially irritating to the skin.
Research has shown that, to make a beneficial difference to skin, a product needs to contain at least 8% Vitamin C. Formulations over 20% do not increase in effectiveness and may also lead to irritation.
- SODIUM HYALURONATE: A water-soluble salt form of Hyaluronic Acid meaning it can hold 1000 times its weight in water. It has a smaller molecular weight than pure Hyaluronic Acid, meaning it can penetrate deeper into the skin and improve hydration from the underlying skin layers. Considered a more stable form, meaning it’s less prone to oxidation and maintains a longer shelf life.
- SODIUM ACETYLATED HYALURONATE: Works like Sodium Hyaluronate but with longer-lasting results on the outer layer of the skin. Repairs damaged and/or rough skin by improving the hydration in the upper layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum) and thereby promotes skin’s elasticity and resilience.
- SODIUM HYALURONATE CROSSPOLYMER: A derivative of Hyaluronic Acid made by extracting its sodium salt. Described as a “moisture sponge” it locks moisture within the deeper layers of the skin for longer. Moisture levels are maintained more effectively because the moisture is being absorbed and stored deep within the skin.
- HYDROLYSED SODIUM HYALURONATE: Has been broken down to a specific size range using hydrolysis, typically to a low molecular weight allowing it to penetrate deeper layers of the skin to attract and bind water.
We recommend applying 1% Hyaluronic Complex Serum on damp skin, allowing the Hyaluronic Acid to bind to and absorb water from the external environment, rather than pulling it from the skin. It’s also important to seal in Hyaluronic Acid with a moisturiser and/or oil. Hyaluronic Acid can dry out the skin as it draws moisture from its surroundings, leaving skin exposed if the moisture is not sealed in.
Most serums on the market range from 5% to 20%. This serum contains 10% Niacinamide, which is an ideal percentage to see noticeable improvements without irritation.
