HOW IT WORKS
A dual-action cleanser, Surface Radiance Cleanse uses both AHA and BHA power to gently break down impurities and slough off dead skin. By gently exfoliating the upper layers of the skin, the skin cell renewal cycle is supercharged, leaving a fresher, clearer complexion.
C-Tetra contains tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, a super-stable form of vitamin C, that boosts the antioxidant defence levels in the skin. Ever the multi-tasker, it also stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the complexion plump, radiant and youthful looking.
Advanced Day Total Protect is the ultimate broad spectrum SPF 30 moisturiser for youthful-looking skin. With 360 degree protection against all routes to premature skin ageing, this is a lightweight, invisible sunscreen for everyday use.
Retinol 3TR Intense is boosted with climbazole, an exceptional ingredient that enhances the power of retinol by blocking the enzyme that breaks down retinoic acid in the skin. This means supercharged power with no extra irritation: a win-win.
L-Mandelic Acid – A softly exfoliating AHA with BHA power, chirally correct mandelic acid is able to work both on the surface of the skin and within pores for deep but gentle exfoliation. Climbazole – Climbazole has been found to boost the activity of retinoids in the skin to give the power of higher percentages without the irritation.
Superior UV Filters – A complex of sun filters carefully selected for their longevity, safety and power to protect the skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate – A lipid-soluble form of vitamin C that provides exceptional antioxidant protection from harmful free radicals, while stimulating collagen production for a youthful complexion.
