There are so many new age skin aggressors to combat, and organicspa reveals how it is leading the way with its new bio-based serum.
A sign of the times
Developments in technology (air conditioning, blue light), climate change (ozone depletion), lifestyle factors (cigarettes, processed foods), and different societal demands are contributing factors to oxidative stress and accelerated skin ageing. Of course, this premature ageing can be visible in a variety of ways, including fine lines, deep wrinkles, dull skin, pigmentation or uneven skin tone, thickened or leathery skin, dehydration, more sensitised irritated or red patches, thin/weakened skin. That pretty much covers every skin concern a modern person may have! Sadly our environmental toxicant exposure, in many ways, is likely to increase, not decrease. As such, our skin demands a different approach to what we did 20, 30 or 40+ years ago.
Fortunately, we can help maintain a naturally healthy complexion and tackle these ‘new age’ skincare woes, thanks to advancements of a different kind. Technologies, a growing knowledge base and a drive to replace conventional fossil-based ingredients have led to growth in the organic skincare category. And as a professional, Certified Organic skincare range, organicspa is committed to leading product development in bio-based products to help us all achieve our skin aspirations. And as we have already identified, development in cosmetic formulations that help slow down the skin’s ageing process is a priority for almost everyone. For organicspa, their focus is firmly on tackling these visible signs of ageing, naturally.
Thankfully Mother Earth has created an abundance of botanicals to support the skin. organicspa champions these bioactive beauties and sources the finest quality varieties. Their expert bio-chemists artfully blend Certified Organic ingredients with plant extracts and natural actives to formulate an effective and luxurious range of Certified Organic skincare. As specialists in this space, organicspa is passionate about developing products that have visible efficacy on the skin, are better for human health, and consider long-term environmental safety.
organicspa is excited to be talking about a brand new product in their arsenal to help defend against today’s environmental aggressors. And we think you are going to love what you hear. Introducing; organicsceuticals active brightening serum.
Based on scientific research, this silky textured, fast-absorbing serum will brighten, protect and hydrate. organicscuticals is organicspa’s solution to cosmeceuticals. The brand’s most potent skincare products sit within this range and are formulated with the highest levels of active ingredients for enhanced benefits. organicscuticals active brightening serum helps the skin cope with the demands of our modern-day lives.
organicspa takes a holistic approach to skincare and considers professional and at-home care equally vital for clients to achieve their skin aspirations. They’re delighted to add this product to their range. It will feature alongside a range of professional treatments in organicspa spas and salons, nationally, as well as a retail offering for ongoing protection between facials.
As they say; the sum of its parts is greater than the whole, and it couldn’t be more accurate in skincare formulation. It’s the combination of ingredients blended together in the organicsceuticals active brightening serum that really delivers a punch. Let’s explore these key components.
Tomato Fruit Extract is full of carotenoids such as Lycopene that absorb UV, are high in antioxidative properties and assist in preventing collagen deterioration. Tomato Fruit Extract is also anti-inflammatory and balances the skin’s pH. Interestingly, the Lycopene from tomatoes is so high in protective antioxidants that it induces the body’s own protective mechanism against oxidative stress and inflammation, enhancing skin resilience. This means plumper skin, reduced lines and better overall skin health.
Studies show that Tomato Fruit Extract can reduce melanin content by up to -22% and contribute to a reduction of wrinkle volume by -33%.
Ascorbyl Glycoside (AA2G) is a highly stable form of Vitamin C. It suppresses melanin synthesis and helps brighten skin, reduce pigment and stimulate collagen production.
Research shows that Ascorbyl Glucoside also helps protect against UV and alleviates skin damage even after exposure to the sun, making it ideal for morning and evening application.
Fucowhite is extracted from a species of brown algae (scientifically known as Ascophyllum Nodosum). Exposed to UV rays on a daily basis, scientists discovered that this brown alga had developed a system that regulates its own pigmentation. This inspired the development of FUCOWHITE to help regulate pigmentation of the skin. With antioxidant properties to reduce and protect against free radical damage, this marine active works as a tyrosine inhibitor, assisting in the reduction of melasma.
In a controlled study, volunteers saw an 88% improvement in skin clarity, and 63% saw a decrease in skin pigmentation.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA), in this instance, is obtained from fermented corn starch. HA is a natural humectant that draws water into our epidermis and maintains skin hydration, resulting in plump, smooth and fresh skin. You will be aware that Hyaluronic Acid naturally exists in the body, but levels decrease as we age. You may have also heard about Hyaluronic Acid’s superpower to support our body in creating more collagen. Structurally, collagen is comprised of long fibers of protein that provide strength and help skin hold together. Collagen helps the skin cells repair and renew and keeps the skin moist. Without collagen, our anti-ageing efforts are lost. As such, any ingredient that helps restore our collagen base is a winner in our book!
Kakadu Plum Extract is the world’s richest source of Vitamin C. Here in Australia, we are lucky enough that it is found on Country, naturally growing and harvested by indigenous communities deep in the heart of The Kimberleys in the Northern Territory. The Kakadu Plum is a small, olive-sized Australian native, sometimes known as Gubinge, Billygoat Plum or Murunga.
Considered a gift of the Dreamtime (the beginning of time in Aboriginal folklore), native Australians have used the Kakadu Plum for food, healing and traditional medicine for many thousands of years. It is no wonder why. A single plum contains more than 100 times the amount of Vitamin C of an orange, up to 7000 mg of Vitamin C per 100g of dry weight.
Vitamin C is the only collagen booster that is also an antioxidant. And antioxidants are critical because they neutralise the effects of free radicals. In turn, yes, it is these free radicals that cause damage and contribute to accelerated ageing. This potent source of Vitamin C is a fantastic ingredient to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and promote collagen production.
Baobab Seed Oil is a gamechanger in preventing TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss). Sourced from large, majestic African trees, like Kakadu Plums, Baobab Seed Oil (from the fruit of the tree) has been used by indigenous cultures for hundreds of years.
Silky smooth and easily absorbed, Baobab Seed Oil creates a protective layer on the epidermis by strengthening the skin’s lipid barrier. Rich in exotic fatty acids (Dihydrosterculic Acid, Sterculic Acid, Malvalic Acid to name a few) and Omegas 3, 6 and 9, this oil will assist in maintaining a healthy complexion, healing and rejuvenating skin from within. It contains natural Vitamins A, C, D, E and F. Plus, it’s also anti-inflammatory and balances sebaceous activity.
Completing this enviable list of natural ingredients is an impressive emulsifier system – Lysofix™. Based on a phospholipid, Lysofix™ enhances the bioavailability of the formula’s actives by increasing their permeability. Lysofix™, therefore, helps assure maximum efficacy, skin integrity and faster results. All while hydrating, promoting collagen production and offering a silky skin feel.
Suitable and recommended for most skin types and conditions. The organicsceuticals active brightening serum is lightweight and water-soluble, making it an ideal booster to use under an organicspa moisturiser, day or night.
Adding this anti-inflammatory formula to a daily organic skincare ritual will offer the following benefits:
- Reduce pigmentation
- Brighten skin tone
- Stimulate collagen
- Reduce signs of photoaging
- Protect and strengthen the epidermis
- Maintains hydration and prevents TEWL
- Strengthening the lipid barrier of the skin
- Deliver antioxidants
The team at organicspa are excited to get this product out into the world and onto your skin, your client’s skin, every skin. Ready to restore and protect from past and future environmental aggressors. We can see why.
