SkinPhD is unveiling several new product ranges this summer that target very specific skin care concerns. These new product ranges include our Platinum range that centers on Optimal Aging and our Clarify range that improves the challenges often seen in oily skin types.
I’m so thrilled to be writing this blog! Why? Because I’m so fond of the new SkinPhd Platinum and Clarify formulations and I want to share my excitement with you! Working in the skin care industry means that I’m exposed to many different product and treatment options on an on-going basis. My philosophy in skin care is that we must provide positive change in the appearance of the skin without creating negative side effects and without damaging or creating an imbalance in the skin. Oddly enough, this can actually be a tricky feat for skin therapists. A number of professional treatments and product actives may create a positive effect in the skin, but when used in excess or improperly these same treatments and ingredients can be highly aggressive and detrimental to skin health. I believe we find these types of actives and treatments most abundantly in the anti-aging and oil-control/breakout realms, and this is why I’m thrilled about the new SkinPhD Platinum and SkinPhD Clarify ranges.
SkinPhD Platinum and SkinPhD Clarify will improve challenging skin care concerns without compromising skin health. In fact, these products will encourage the integrity of the skin! Let’s now look at these two ranges and a couple of the ingredients that make them unique.
SkinPhD Clarify is developed for clients who have oily and challenging skin.
A key feature of this product range is the Honeybush plant – a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal plant from the Cape of South Africa. Honeybush is a close cousin to the well-known Rooibos plant. Often consumed as a tea, Honeybush is characterized by a sweet, honey-like scent.
In our Clarify line, Honeybush not only reduces levels of bacteria in the skin but also provides other layers of protection much needed by oily and problem-prone skin – including anti-inflammatory activity and antioxidant protection.
Key features of Honeybush:
- Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral
- Limits the growth and reproduction of Propionibacterium Acnes (P. acnes) – the bacteria associated with breakouts
- Contains minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, copper, zinc, manganese, and sodium
- Improves skin healing and reduces irritation
- Rich in polyphenol antioxidants
- Gentle, non-sensitizing
SkinPhD Platinum is a cosemceutical range formulated for mature skin that is experiencing dryness, changes in hormone levels, fine lines, and wrinkles.
In addition to living plant cells, peptides, and patented collagen-building actives, this range contains Zincite – a zinc carbonate that may be found in an array of colors. The use of zinc dates back to ancient times when the Chinese used the mineral to reduce scarring.
Modern science has come to know zinc as an important mineral in the activity of over 200 enzymes. Zinc also plays an important role in every biological component related to growth and development.
Key Features of Zincite:
- Plays a vital role in DNA and RNA metabolism – without zinc, cell division ceases
- Assists in elastin and collagen synthesis
- Protects DNA
- Increases cellular repair
- Suitable for daily application
- Provides constant cellular protection against environmental stress
- Improves skin elasticity and texture
- Accelerates the renewal of skin cells
- Reduces MMP-related collagen degradation
As you looked over these featured ingredients did you notice the multiple-benefits they both possess? These are the types of ingredients we at SkinPhD love! As nearly all skin care concerns are related to multiple factors within the skin, we require ingredients with multi-faceted functions to truly create a positive environment for healthy change in the skin’s appearance.
SkinPhD Platinum and Clarify are full of sensible, suitable, effective ingredients and will deliver the results our clients demand.
