FAQ-PRODUCTS




WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO USE A CLEANSER?

Cleansing is the MOST important step to achieve great skin. If the skin is not sufficiently clean, dead skin cells and bacteria remain causing the skin to become dull, flaky and prone to clogged pores and congestion. Cleansing prepares the skin for the application and penetration of further products.

DO I NEED A TONER?

A toner will remove debris, residual soap and purify the complexion, balancing sebaceous activity and restoring the acid mantle. They assist with improving skin elasticity and providing an additional layer of nutrients and moisture.

WHEN SHOULD I MOISTURISE?

Moisturisers should be used after cleansing and toning to re-hydrate and deeply nourish the skin. They are formulated to create a protective barrier against oxidants and moisture loss. Apply after cleansing and toning. Note areas of dryness/oiliness on particular areas of the face. If the skin is producing sufficient oil in certain areas, then leave it be.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SERUM AND A MOISTURISER?

Serums are lighter and are packed with specialised ingredients and technology. Their molecular structure is smaller and designed to penetrate the deeper dermal layers of the skin to offer optimum results. They have a cosmeceutical effect that targets more than one concern. Moisturisers offer hydration and protection and assist to seal in the nutrients. They should contain a balanced concentration of emollients, including essential fatty acids that aid, replenish and repair.

WHAT IS SKIN LIGHTENING AND BRIGHTENING?

It refers to the practice of using active ingredients to assist to lighten and even out the skin tone and complexion by decreasing the concentration of hyper-pigmentation caused by sun damage.

WHAT IS THE PH OF THE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER?

WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?

Peptides are short-chain proteins that naturally occur in the skin and act mainly as messengers (signalling peptides) or hormones. Furthermore, they have been shown to play a key role in natural skin healing processes. Products containing peptides are claimed to have smoothing and nourishing effects on the skin. The amino acid sequence and chain structure determine the specific biological activity and function.
