The BCP Custom Skincare system

BCP Custom Skincare is an easy four-step system to help you design a moisturiser that is best suited for your skin and needs.

Step 1: Choose your base consistency

To help you on your custom skincare journey, we have formulated four base moisturisers: three creams and a serum.

Our organic cream bases contain avocado oil, squalene and hyaluronate, a combination that is naturally rich in vitamins A and D, with anti-ageing properties. These bases are formulated to match the skin’s natural pH. They spread easily on the skin and penetrate deeply, keeping skin hydrated, elastic, soft and smooth.

We describe our bases by their skin-feel and emollience:

Emollient (adj): having the quality of softening or soothing the skin.

LIGHT Avocado Oil
A light and non-greasy cream base that soothes and revives dry and tired skin.
Especially suitable for young skin and for application to the face.
MEDIUM Avocado Oil
Shea Butter
A cream base made slightly more emollient by the addition of Shea butter (which adds antioxidants, omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids and vitamins).
Suitable for all skin types.
HEAVY Avocado Oil
Shea Butter
Our most emollient cream base. The addition of beeswax makes this base deeply moisturising, as well as increasing the vitamin A content and imparting antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Very suitable for dry, aged or damaged skin.
SERUM (15ml only) Hyaluronate Our serum base is the lightest in consistency overall, yet still deeply hydrating. Useful as a simple base for the addition of specific vitamins and oils, such as those below.

Peptides and skincare

February 20, 2019

Once upon a time a short while ago, I wasn’t a fan of peptides in skincare products. The pharmacist
in me was sceptical that the evidence for the effectiveness was slightly lacking. More importantly,
the lack of evidence surrounding possible side effects had me downright worried.
A chemical that can alter intracellular messaging and hormones sounds a bit daunting. What would
happen if a chemical that stimulates the growth of cells was applied to a cancerous lesion on the
