Personalised Skincare

November 14, 2018

skin care for sensitive skin

Personalised 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 personalised 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. 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
Squalene
Hyaluronate
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
Squalene
Hyaluronate
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
Squalene
Hyaluronate
Shea Butter
Beeswax
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.
