The Squalane Cleanser is a moisturizing makeup-removing cleanser that is gentle enough for everyday use. The Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a water-based serum that boosts skin brightness, improves skin smoothness and reinforces the skin barrier over time. The Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is a a charcoal- and clay-infused formula that targets lacklustre tone and textural irregularities. The Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is a daily moisturizer that works with your skin to support its natural hydration barrier.

Squalane Cleanser - 50ml
Squalane Cleanser is formulated to clean skin by removing makeup and dirt. This cleanser also supports your skin’s moisture barrier through hydration. Its skin-cleansing properties harness plant-derived squalane, a well-studied moisturizing agent, alongside lipophilic esters that will leave your skin feeling smooth and soft while dissolving makeup. The formula is non-comedogenic and soap-free so it’s gentle enough for daily use, suitable for all skin types, and suitable to combine with our other products.

Salicylic Acid 2% Masque - 50ml
Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is a charcoal- and clay-infused formula that targets lacklustre tone and textural irregularities, leaving your skin clean and refreshed. With the help of salicylic acid, a lipophilic BHA known to target pore congestion, this deeply cleansing masque removes dead skin cells and excess oil, which promotes soft and smooth skin. The clay and charcoal absorb facial impurities that would otherwise clog pores, helping to boost radiance.

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - 30ml
Our Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% formula is a water-based serum that boosts skin brightness, improves skin smoothness, and reinforces skin barrier integrity over time. It contains a high concentration of niacinamide (vitamin b3) and zinc PCA.

Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA - 30ml
Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is a moisturizer that works with your skin to support its natural hydration barrier. By using a collection of ingredients that appear naturally in your skin—such as amino acids, fatty acids, triglycerides, urea, ceramides, phospholipids, glycerine, saccharides, sodium PCA, and hyaluronic acid—this cream keeps the outer layer of your skin protected and well-hydrated, without feeling greasy. Plus, it provides both immediate and lasting effects, as it works to significantly improve skin barrier function with regular use."
