What is collagen?
Collagen is tough, structural protein abundant in our own skin and bodies. It’s what helps form our tendons, ligaments and even our eyes. Its primary function in our skin is to hold it taught and firm, almost like a scaffold for our skin. As we age, our collagen becomes less effective in replacing itself and we notice the appearance of lines and slackening.
Created with this in mind we are delighted to introduce our brand new skinSense Hydrating Collagen Gel. Working in close synergy with our skin, it mimics our own natural collagen structures, plumping the surface and leaving it smooth and dewy. Formulated with 100% plant based collagen, sustainably sourced from the Acacia tree, this super-hydrator is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. It’s incredibly refreshing super-light texture instantly hydrates skin that is fatigued, stressed and dull. Densely packed with ingredients, your skin is visibly smoothed and soothed.
The light water-based texture contains a unique blend of antioxidant rich mushroom extracts for their exceptional skin benefits. Ecomushlyte soothes and calms irritation, reduces pigmentation and increases hydration levels for a fresher, healthier complexion.
- Maitake mushroom is an antioxidant known for it’s anti-inflammatory benefits, but carefully selected for this formula because of its ability to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity – boosting skin firmness and that lovely youthful ‘plump’ texture.
- Reishi Mushroom is a humectant which means it draws and retains moisture in the skin. This in turn creates the perfect environment to produce ceramides, the protective layer that keeps environmental stresses out and hydration in. It also calms and soothes redness and irritation.
- Shitake mushroom which is rich in Kojic Acid brightens and lightens your complexion, reducing pigmentation. Rich in Phyto-nutrients, Shitake extract improves cell renewal supporting collagen and elastin production.
Feel the difference
Introducing our beautifully lightweight Hydrating Collagen Gel into your regime will quench and cool your skin, effortlessly delivering results usually associated with much heavier textures. The jelly texture works in harmony with other skincare and the water base will not block or impair the efficacy or other cream or oil-based formulas. You can choose to use the gel on its own as a light moisturiser or to supercharge and boost your regime.
Gels are perfect for those that love hydration without grease or oil, they won’t block your pores or overwhelm skin that may be prone to reaction. We also recommend gels during the summer months when we need cooler textures or when going through the menopause. For an extra cooling burst, store your gel in the fridge. The extra cold application will help to tone and tighten the skin surface, helping to combat puffiness and relieving heat.
